The Dane's are presumably optimistic a post-Brexit Open Skies is on the way?

Primera Air

Must admit I didn't see this one coming.

When I read the news of BHX yesterday I did think that perhaps Stansted could be On the horizon. And so it is.

This is almost a bit sad for them. If they do happen to strike the winning transatlantic low cost formula, it is not going to be them that takes advantage of it.

Wonder if we'll see AA return to defend their 'London' patch like last time. Let's hope not because that got no where last time.

Or, alternatively, they believe Brexit won't happen

While I think it's less important now whether it's a household name because of Skyscanner etc so wouldn't write them off on the routes chosen, there is only so much they can do if they stick to A321s. I mean, where else can they get to that people would actually be interested in visiting? Washington, Halifax and Montreal are the only ones that come my mind. Even Washington might be too far.

It did exactly what AA wanted last time - put the competition out if business and they then withdrew to heathrow

That's exactly my point.

I was one of those affected by AA pulling out within weeks of them adding a second daily schedule that never happened and my booking was shifted to LHR.

There is near zero chance of AA or anyone else coming in as a spoiler. It was different last time around, Eos and to a lesser extent Maxjet were poaching premium pax where the real money is. There is no need to come to Primera, they can just dump bargain fares on their existing flights at LHR/LGW.

For example I could right now book VS to BOS for 295 including food, drink, bags and entertainment.

Can the 321 Neos go the distance without refuelling in KEF?

does depend on the new A321neo having ETOPS 'out of the box' plus also does the carrier have ETOPS approval and experience

Thomson/TUI

Seems the Thursday PMI and Friday IBZ flights have been removed from the booking engine for Summer 2018. I doubt the aircraft will sit there doing nothing so maybe a new route or two on the way?

Maybe this is the first signs of Jet2 giving TUI a push on their bread and butter routes. Maybe we'll see something different from TUI? Naples would be a good fit for the Friday.

Most people on big US holidays plan it a year plus in advance it appears talking to friends, must admit don't fall into that category.
Some who have just returned and also about to go highlighted that if pound goes below $1.2 then would make it an issue in terms of cost. As is they planned for $1.50 plus and got $1.25.

I do see less people doing TA if -$ falls further.

True but mericans likely to use their own airlines or well known ones first.
