Really? Loads on Liverpool - Katowice haven't dropped below 85% all year...besides, the route dropped from 3 to 2 pwk last winter apart from mid December to mid January when it went back up to three pwk.

On some routes starting to see Brexit affect..........

When first come people back and forward quite a bit, then it slows down as they get settled and have familys etc but others come so can justify the services.............. however others are not coming hence there will be a dropping of pax, maybe not huge just 10-15 a flight.

Seeing that more people from Eastern Europe are still settling here than leaving I don't see where you are coming from.

Might be the case that there are no relations left in Eastern Europe to visit.

Data last week suggested that new arrivals from Europe have dropped drastically. Hardly surprising. The has lost nearly 25% of its value, and economic growth in the 27 is much higher than here. So they either don't need to leave to get a decent job, or if they do, they can earn more elsewhere. Explains the continuing fall in UK unemployment - employers are being forced to hire locals.
Poland is keen for its diaspora to return.

Not according to Govenment data and the data within the communities themselves.

The outgoers are out numbering the incomers.

Compare the price of hotels (like for like) in the UK with those in Spain, Greece etc. We are anything but a cheap holiday destination.

And it may apply to London, but it probably applies less to Belfast, Liverpool, Doncaster, ...

Wizz have also reduced their winter frequencies from DSA to Katwoice and Gdnask. From 4 weekly to 3 weekly.

Unsurprising given demand is greater in the Summer

I think you're missing the point. They've reduced their schedule from what was originally announced for winter, and if you compare to winter a couple of years ago, some routes are operating at half the frequency.

The demand is drying up.

This thread is about Wizz, and they probably wouldn't agree.

Sure your political views will be welcomed in JetBlast

Can't LTNman post on the Daily Fail website instead. This forum is not for racist bigots.

I completely agree. His comment - 'Might be the case that there are no relations left in Eastern Europe to visit' wouldn't be out of place at a Britain First rally and deluded drivel like that has no place here.

LTNman - Please catch the next flight from Luton to any foreign destination. And stay there.

I doubt he would do that because he does not like those awful foreigners. Back to Wizz they are just adjusting to demand or lack of it which is good housekeeping.
