When you pay through the nose for a service, you expect it to be much better and will rightly complain if it isnít. Belfastís two airports have very differing markets in the most part!
This is a very debatable topic 'EGAC is better'.
​​​​​​We can assume BHD resident carriers charge higher fares, but Business travellers mostly book late, certainly on SH. Have you ever seen the price of tickets in the last few days on LCCs? Can be eye watering. I'd argue the design of yield management systems is not designed to be low prices close to travel date (yes there can be exceptions on a route where there is over capacity, and softer load factors), the bit that business travellers are after. easyJet have a very well developed business traveller following, they have a big focus on corporates and SMEs, and again yes they are not as notable in that space as BA, let's not forget we are comparing a very sizeable domestic easyJet opetation with 1 BA route to LHR...which has lower loads and quite a lot of economy leisure travellers .... BFS has probably more than it's fair share of business travellers ...

Also when we say BHD is more expensive and yes it is a fair bit of the time, it's very much relational to LON. When you start looking at say BHX, MAN, GLA, EDI fares on BE can be relatively similar to EZY and sometimes cheaper, there's a fair bit of leisure business out of BHD too.

Doncaster will be 4 weekly the winter, Exeter daily. Cardiff no one knows about so it's unknown whether the route will be dropped or not.
