It seems Vueling NCL-BCN has been removed from sale this year.

If you are referring to the flights that recently didn't operate, this was due to Vueling suspending the route temporarily. They have now reinstated since Monday 13th Feb. There is a Vueling flight today at 1510.

No I'm referring to the fact there are no flights bookable after 26th March.

Does anyone know what the loads have been for the flights? Is it viable?

The website gives the impression it resumes 2nd Aug but when you click into those dates it says flights not available, and all traces of the flights removed from GDS.

Think vueling are having crew issues still so things being scaled back at the minute.
We may see it back next year.

Maybe Ryanair will set in on this route now and go head to head with easyJet

EZY to BCN
LS/TCX/TOM to REU
LS/FR to GIR

Still plenty of choice to the Barcelona area. Or fly via LHR/AMS/CDG and avoid MAN.

Huge shame to see it go! Hoped it would develop into something more in time, I wonder why it's being pulled with such short notice though, when the whole S17 and I think W17/18 have already been on sale

Has Vueling cut anything else if it is crewing issues?

Vueling have cut LBA to BCN and Paris from EDI/LTN also seems to be a big scale back.
It's either IAG pulling the loss making routes are they having a lot of crewing issues still which rumours to believe.

** GOOD NEWS **
TCX have added HRG for summer 2017 late in the day but I'm sure they can fill it

At IAG's last Capital Markets Day back in November, the boss of VY stated that there are some markets that VY want to expand in so they will set up a route they will operate it for a certain period of time. If after that period of time they route fails to be profitable it will be discontinued. Think that's what happened with the routes dropped by VY in recent days.

I can't I'll miss Vueling, but anecdotally it seems easyJet put up a fight and still managed to fill seats. It's never that cheap neither when I've looked so perhaps there's scope to increase frequency or make it exclusively A320 (where the schedule allows). The new 186Y 32S is coming in a few weeks but that's not going to help with the reduction in capacity following Vueling's departure. My only hope is that Ryanair stay off the route and stick to Girona.

Why would it be bad if Ryanair come on to the BCN route? They can pick up where Vueling has left. And offer early afternoon (which Vueling did) instead of evenings like EasyJet do.

Vueling is not a big name up here compared to the likes of easyJet and Ryanair. Even Jet2 could give Barcelona a go but I doubt it.

Vueling do not fly to/from Paris from Luton HH6702. They fly to Barcelona, Amsterdam, Zurich and Florence.

But I bet DUS had at least double the revenue per seat as SXF. Two completely different markets. DUS serves the Rhein-Ruhr industrial area, whilst Berlin, although the capital is still primarily a leisure destination.
