It clearly does matter though, as they've retrenched to LGW, MAN and GLA only in the UK where they have a high frequency of service. All of the regional "hangers-on" have been dropped, one by one, and there is no sign of these being restored despite the arrival of the NextGen 757, aka the A321LR. Whether AC will lead to a change of strategy at TS is a different matter, and I wouldn't like to guess how that will pan out.

"need to team up to put together a plan as to how Air Transat could use a 321LR all week and how the crew, maintenance and catering logistics could work with services to YYZ every day from different airports."

Doesn't work - people travelling on Business want a flight every day (well at least every working day) to/from the same airport. Having to fiddle about deciding that because you suddenly change the day of you return you'll be arriving back in Manchester rather than NCL isn't acceptable.

Air Canada used to have enough problems when they alternated daily flights from LHR - Calgary - Vancouver with LHR - Edmonton - Vancouver. People didn't like it at all

PS The real problem is that Canada is a damn big place and doesn't get that many UK tourists - and if you do they don't want to go to Toronto but the Rockies and Vancouver - so you have business travelers and tourists disconnected in a small market covering a big country - not a recipe for success TBH

Eastern

I have heard from a few former colleagues that Eastern are looking at removing an aircraft from NCL and their ABZ service will be cut.

Seems like eastern cannot compete with Loganair, which i'm not surprised as most PAX would prefer the comfort of the ERJs to a J41.

They currently have just 2 J41s.

And operate NCL - ABZ, NCL-CWL-VLY with these aircraft

Depending on how Eastern ops feel each week, itís either 1 or 2 based. The one aircraft used to do NCL > ABZ > Wick > ABZ > NCL then on certain days CWL. Not sure of the eastern programme of recent as itís so sporadic.

CWL have their own based J41 for the PSO route to VLY, this operates CWL-VLY-CWL-NCL-ABZ then correct me if Iím wrong another J41 does ABZ-NCL-CWL-VLY-CWL.

Correct, this is how itís meant to go unless flights are cancelled. Ironically, today was meant to be the first Sunday NCL-CWL-NCL service and they cancelled it. What a way to start

LH Munich

I am surprised that the airports marketing department arenít pushing Munichís accessibility to the Austrian Alps. Some of the best ski resorts in the world are only a couple of hours drive from Munich and the new service makes long weekend trips much easier.

The Lufthansa terminal is a far slicker experience than the hell hole that Geneva is in ski season. Tickets are very cheap for many dates which suggests lack of demand so I just hope the service is a success. Far better to have a flag carrier on the route than EasyJet or Jet2 for connections and the rarity of inbound passengers.

Yes, and as I have reminded before, skis/boards go free on Lufty on anything but Lite fares, and that is a major saving compared to EZY, Jet2, BA, KLM, etc. Current car hire rates on the usual comparative sites are generally way less at MUC than GVA.

To be fair, I've seen more promotion by the airport for the new MUC route than any other I can remember.
