I know markets change, but the NE/SW market can't have changed that much, it's not like the NE/SE market that has understandably lost out to frequent, fast train journeys
The question is whether, at the prices you are quoting, either Easy or BMI are doing any more can covering their marginal costs, if that.

What's the point in having single daily flights with crap times?

Anyway I give up, glad to see you're keeping things mature up here as well, resorting to the usual petty "spotter" insults. Not me though... Haven't been spotting for a good few years now

I'll let you gentlemen get on with your NCL bashing. I'm glad you're not in charge though, I don't think insularity can be very good for business

I'm not sure these days what say airports actually have in a route network.

I'm sure Newcastle would love to have 3 daily returns to Bristol,Belfast,Stansted Gatwick and now Copenhagen et al...the airlines do the sums(apparently) and think Bristol to Poland ( that's a pick out of the sky BTW) makes them more money than a short haul routes with a potential of 200k passengers per year?, and that was Copenhagen as well ??
Now the common denominator is...EZY !!

Not sure what the answer is..we are all armchair CEOs. But without being parochial..this is the NE backwater!

No hope south of the region in DTV..at least Ncl is on the up again.
