only now is the true extent revealing itself, sad news indeed but, o'leary airlines have been renown for this, still surprising that bfs let them in.

Ir looks like they will have a few services continuing, at least at the moment. So are they keeping a very small toe in the water?

Think FR initially arrived in BFS with Gatwick remedy slots from the IAG takeover of Aer Lingus?

But having chopped and changed a bit, looks like their heart isn’t in it.

Good opportunity for EZY and Jet2 to strengthen - perhaps Wizz too?

WAW will be a good route to reinstate, also big student population in gdansk and wroclaw.

A lot of the growth at BFS from U2 and LS has been spurred by FR being there. Be interesting to see if they do pick up anything or of they retract back to profit maximisation.
Interesting talking to a source of mine, a lot of the issues with FR relate to them being unable to fill a/c without heavy discounting. Seems EZY have a more solid and loyal customer base than FR reckoned on, especially in the case of domestic.

Jet2 appear to have cut Faro down to 5 days a week next summer rather than 6. This year there was no flight on a Wednesday but next summer they have no flights on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

eu-jet started that trend with a route to manston in kent, ezy said it was only a trial during the Lindon Olympics, cant see a big thing out of the main London airports.

I never heard anything about this being for the Olympics. Sounds crazy.

The olympics resulted in a dip in tourism to London.

Ryanair going to be using Ryanair Sun for the canaries bases. So this is all about cost cutting. What are the chances they will return on these routes via this subsidiary?

So Ryanair in effect TrueBlue are substituting a Ryanair operation with a RyanairSun/Buzz base. Suggests they are not happy about their cost base. Equally, let's just see what this does for their already frayed union relationships...

Having the story in the local rag is one thing, having it on the front page of one of the most visited websites in the UK is another: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49628875

Disastrous PR.

Another of these 5hite Which ? surveys portrayed as Gospel and portrayed as such.

4500 surveys out of membership of 1.6 million.

No independent verification is provided that the people concerned have actually visited ANY airport yet somehow yet again everybody should believe Which?

It's job is increasing subscriptions and surveys like this help.
