Shenzhen

I agree - on the face this appears to be an odd route.

I have just returned from a trip to that very city: it is extremely prosperous with a strong propensity for outbound travel, is growing and developing very quickly and is the Chinese version of 'Silicon Valley'.

With a new fast train link to HK, you can be in Kowloon in around 20 minutes from Shenzhen. It could then have potential but.....you don't need a Chinese visa to land into HK whereas you do for Shenzhen (even if you are then going straight to HK on the train) and onward flight connections from Shenzhen are fairly limited apart from domestic routes, we all know that you can get virtually anywhere from HK!

Shenzhen Airport is well designed and I found a breeze to get through, even Immigration, perhaps I was lucky!

But it is still an oddball route. However, I can highly recommend Shenzhen for a visit though (as part of a trip to China) - great food, cheap 5 star hotels and a fair bit to see and do in the vicinity. Climate is very nice - it was 22 degrees when I was there before Christmas! Whether all this is enough for this to be a sustainable routes, let's see, but does it have potential as an alternative entry point to China??

Can any loads be extrapolated from the UK CAA figures for the Hainan PEK route?

You can pull figures from June to September from the CSO

https://www.cso.ie/px/pxeirestat/Sta...01&PLanguage=0

However, it's not clear to me how they treat the passengers on the flights that stop in EDI.

If they are excluded, the figures look quite good. If they aren't, they are very ugly.

Aer Lingus cancel YUL until 2020 and reduce BDL, MSP, PHL (SNN-JFK) in July due to A321 delivery delays.

Ludicrous Shannon is being affected by this a321 issue. Shannon wasnít due to receive any a321s in the short term, yet again dead legs to Dublin. Canít see how this is in any way viable yet it continues to happen.

The aircraft is going to be used for MSP. Shannon will never be prioritized unfortunately

Well with asl in Shannon of course they wouldnít for the a321. Shannon will be the last to get them most likely, but that doesnít discount the terrible service being provided. I donít see any sense in dead legging aircraft up and flying on from Dublin when more than likely loads are in the upper end from Shannon. Subbing a Shannon 757 when an a330 is affected in Dublin is another example. It surely costs them huge financial costs as well as reputation. Why was no short term capacity leased in on this occasion, such as Omni which were used before. Given itís peak season in general loads should be good.

Quiet a busy Feb with over 2 million up 9%

Europe 1m up 12%
UK 765k up 4%
N American 175k up 15%
Other Int 62k up 2% - quiet a lot of capacity additions/reductions verses 2018.
Domestic 7k down 16%

Norwegian
B789 - Operating SWF (PVD pax bused) until 30 April. Current schedules from 1 May have 3 instead of 4 aircraft planned with SWF reduced from 14 to 10 weekly, while YHW delayed until 1 May and reduced from 7 to 4 weekly. All bookings are essentially suspended for the summer unless you think €1200-14000 is good value for a return trip until they know whats happening.

Aer Lingus
A321 delays have resulted in approx 50,000 seats removed for S19.
