The problem is, even though it is domestic there still isnít a great amount of people travelling currently. Optimising a schedule for day visits etc is difficult under those circumstances. I donít see that changing until things start to get back to a degree of normality. I.e people going back to work.

At the moment, the pent up demand is for leisure travel which is being trounced on by the uncertainty surrounding where we can and canít go which changes on a weekly basis. Combine that with very weak business demand (which a lot of domestic is) and you can see the awful predicament the airlines are in at the moment.

On the EasyJet thread, confirmed that a new batch of cancellations and reductions have been made for winter 20/21. Just had a very quick look, but not looking great for BFS, I guess to be expected. Appears that Marrakesh, Prague, Lyon, Salzburg all gone. Paris down to X2 week, reductions on Malaga, Alicante. Possibly more.
As I say, didn’t have a detailed look, but fairly depressing reading.
On a side note re BHD, the new Cityflyer LCY starts tomorrow. Fingers crossed for that.

FAO, RAK, PRG all listed throughout winter on the App. If there are further reductions they’re not showing.
Be interesting to see how BHD-LCY progresses with Cityflyer talking of hibernating for much of the winter.

I have flights booked for PRG in January and they are still showing under My Trips in the app. If I try to book the same dates again though the app it shows No Flights, so I assume they either have been or will be cancelled.

Krakow down to two (from three) flights per week, but cancelled for nearly all of October.

Valencia gone (for good?).

Apparently Virgin are also drastically reducing their 2021 program, with just 4 departures. 20th and 27th June, and 4th and 11th of July.

Duty free is not a benefit, it's a restriction. Buying locally for excise goods is normally cheaper in most of Europe. That said, once the UK is out of the EU buying locally may not be an option.

I see Ryanair has tidied up its booking engine and several destinations have been removed ex Bfs.
