Stuttgart - MANCHESTER- Boston/JFK/Orlando and reverse spring to mind.

Delta have been at both Manchester and Stuttgart for decades however the markets have changed somewhat .

Connect the two and retain some of their loyal traffic at least using their UK partner branches as a possibility perhaps ?

Since the suggestion Virgin could use Manchester as a ‘hub’, I thought that secondary cities in Europe without or with little long haul service could be a good start for a ‘regional carrier’. Stuttgart certainly fits within that - but also Luxembourg .

Summer 2020

The announcement says this is the first phase of summer flights to be announced with further to be announced soon so it’ll be interesting to see what else they’ve got planned.

In business, one of the challenges we face is a lack institutional memory, have a look at the quote below from the above link.
As Flybe, we have been connecting passengers across the UK and Europe for 40 years
OK it's maybe just a poor copywriter but FFS, from a company that's lost focus and direction, it's worth at least knowing your own history. The whole flybe concept came with later deliveries of the DHC8-Q402, the initial deliveries were "British European" which had just re-branded from the long established "Jersey European". So flybe for about half of forty years!
Wonder if they'll finally drop the "Jersey" callsign?

Don't laugh... I always use one of these re-usable shopping bags for my hand luggage when flying Flybe or Aurigny ! :-)

Buy them for CHF1 from Migros or Euro 1 from Aldi, ReWe or Woolworth in Germany. The last one often raises eyebrows from the fellow senior passengers ! :-)

Clearly, Virgin Connect colours will be red. Branson is reported as saying ".....we’ll see more red planes flying around Britain, as Virgin Connect starts flying under the Virgin brand.”
