So tonight I had to book flights to Düsseldorf for Wednesday 17th of September/day return

Checked flights with Eithad Regional prices came to £117.48 return.

Checked flights with Germanwings/Eurowings came to £76 return with the extras included, ie seat selection.

Needless to say my business went to Germanwings, but just thought id check another date 15th october and the prices for each were the same.

So would seem Germanwings are offering the better deal to try and remove Eithad regional.

thought id post for those interested

I'd say that is 80% of their reason for starting this route - defending the home turf and hoping that Etihad gets bored of seeing their money being burned.

Germanwings ~ Lufthansa, who have expressed their dislike for the MEB3 a few times now, so I imagine this is one of the reasons they are trying to push Etihad Regional off the route, as they never seemed too bothered when Air Berlin were operating it.

Well made me book with Germanwings, as im sure it will with many people. So as you guys say, only so long Eithad will be able to put up with it.

Stansted airport website

When looking through the Stansted airport website I see that under flight timetable it still shows a drop box for winter 13 and summer 14
Has anyone any idea when this gets updated
as I'm looking for charter flights for winter 14 I would have thought
The winter program for charter flights would already be available ...

A large hole has been found on the runway, hence the reason flights are diverting to other airports.

With that way of thinking, you will soon be without DUS flights from STN. Germanwings/Lufthansa is not interested in DUS-STN as a route, they are interested in driving Etihad Regional out of business. Once they have achieved that, they will pull out (or prices will go up significantly). Around 2000, Lufthansa had a sizeable presence at STN as part of a (failed) strategy to react to Ryanair and easyjet (flights from FRA, HAM, CGN, MUC, some operated by bmi and flightline). Needless to say, they stopped STN after a rather short while.

I saw it as a backup move for when FR start CGN and 4U have to pull or reduce their flights. I think they'll slaughter Etihad on DUS. They're very popular with all the German expats in London.

I think you'll find the difference between Lufthansa and Germanwings is that Germanwings are an already established STN resident, so comparing them to the efforts of LH back in the day @ STN is somewhat unfair. However I have no doubt that they are trying (and will succeed) in seeing Darwin/Etihad off the route. It's just a shame we've said goodbye to AB.

I'm assuming the LH flight number allows for connections @ DUS?

re: Stansted airport website schedule

I see it's still not updated - slots should be finalised with ACL pretty soon which is when a confirmed schedule is released. At the moment it's still open to 'handbacks'.

How often is 04 used? Been looking around, but can't seem to find any exact number.
