I don't know but if you are going for a city break stay in Cittą Alta rather than Milan. Very easy transfer, beautiful walled town on a hill looking over Bergamo and more to see than Milan which has the Duomo and shopping arcade and not much else and is an easy 1 hour train ride anyway.

thanks for the recommendation! Have just returned from Lake Garda (via TUI and Verona ) so am looking into next year now.

Another poor month for the NCL-SNN route for June.

25% LF; 49 pax

Still strange to why they moved from ORK as it achieved much better numbers

Yeah it's a shame to see SNN not performing very well, and the flights are dirt cheap! I know the breakeven numbers will be relatively low for it but I highly doubt that 25% is gonna cut the mustard.

In an ideal world it would be lovely to see SNN, ORK and DUB coexist, but I doubt we're going to see that happen unless SNN starts pulling some impressive numbers and profitability at x2pw.

It would be nice to see SNN swapped back to ORK if the route does get discontinued, I'd be very surprised if ORK wasn't turning at least a little bit of profit for FR.

I hope we might see a bit of a response to LS and BY's expansion for S24 - FR have stagnated at NCL the last few seasons, there are a handful of quite obvious unserved routes that I think FR would be a good fit on out of NCL, as well as frequency increase - the likes of Malaga and Barcelona could sustain at least a couple of extra weekly flights.

Lets see what happens.

Ryanair

I think Ryanair should seriously consider Malta for their route mix. Underserved and high seat only yields evidenced by jet2.com fares.

Ryanair routes maybe diluted now out of Newcastle and Leeds, possibly due to Teesside expansion?

Ryanair have expanded at both NCL and LBA since they started at Teesside - as stated above, they've opened a base at NCL since they launched flights from Teesside in 2021.

I am surprised that no airline has picked up NCE since EZY left the airport. There is a huge gap there for any airports in the South of France. LS operate from LBA so surprised they have not picked this up for NCL.
I know BER (or SXF as it was) was also hit and miss for EZY but another popular route that no one has picked up on (except LS for their Christmas markets specials).

Looks like Aer Lingus made a good move taking on Belfast City carrying 2,879 pax in its first full month of operation.

What on earth is happening with AF?
Yet another very late take-off today with AF1059, even though it arrive on time from Paris.

Weather? The UK live weather radar extends to Northern France and some pretty nasty looking stuff near Paris. BHX flight similarly delayed - 90 minutes adrift

Could be but the weather was moving away quickly and predictably.

But would have disrupted all the earlier arrivals and departures so flow control used to catch up?
