I doubt it, firstly Wizzair are No.1 at Luton with a large based crew now, second, giving up any slots at Luton, especially by based aircraft, will get taken straight away by someone else. With the shear number of new aircraft arriving, it makes good business sence to compliment existing London routes. They will know demand and only goes to prove their routes are strong.

I wonder why Wizz hasn’t started any routes from NCL yet I think they could be quite successful

Everywhere has a relatively big Polish population...you need to look strategically. With Wizz having quite a hub down the road at DSA along Ryanair and Wizz also offering a few routes out of GLA/PIK where does Newcastle fit in?

Relatively speaking, the Polish community in Newcastle isn't that big.

Jet 2 operate to Krakow and Ryanair continue operate to Gdansk and Wroclaw - presumably that covers whats needed, hence RYR dropping Warsaw.

Poles who came here in 2004-2008 have settled, had family / kids, therefore Weekend trips, holidays and Christmas are times they will go back a lot but rest of the year its work and school. The fact that less people have come from Poland since June 2016 also has an impact as the newcomers tend to go back a lot in the early years.

Shared with some Irish football mates who will be in Tblisi in October, followed by Switzerland (venue not known yet). He went on this morning and added me to the list going, (may not attend) but they booked 8 seats and had change from £200 or as he put it a couple of rounds in Tblisi / a single beer in Switzerland.

As the route they were looking at involved a stop in Turkey and £150 a head he well pleased.

Wizz for allows to book seats without specifying fellow passenger names. Who is going can be entered a few hours before flight. 10 eur per name per flight.

That's the way the world works. Retail stores and coffee shops open branches in locations and will in some cases trade them at a loss to protect them from the competition.
Its not really vastly different from selling seats at a huge loss to drive out competition.
