Was slightly surprised they weren't already operating that route. Seems to be just a few peak high season services, perhaps a taster.
Melbourne seems to be getting mixed reviews.

SmartLynx Latvia

For all you spotter types at BFS, the Bristol flight tomorrow night at 2140 will be operated by SmartLynx Latvia using an A320. Ah for the glory days when a sub would mean something exotic like a Coronado, IL-18, Caravelle. Now it’s just another A320.

And probably an all white one...

it was and we departed over 2 hours late. Something about Thursdays on BRS-BFS always a rolling delay. Too tightly scheduled earlier in the day.

Being reported(speculation) that Ryanair, on Thursday, could be announcing a return to Bfs this winter. Credit SeanM1997 on twitter.

So 3 years of FR before they leave in a huff again. Rinse and repeat.

At least it should help keep EZY honest.

They'll not walk away if there is money to be made - past performance might be more of an indication of demand from BFS?

Surprised to see a few domestic legs there, and currently no Canaries.

Incredible. So what's different this time.
they've not had much success on domestic services, I think lately due to their discomfort with not having sold seats very far in advance.
They had filled for slots to the airports I had mentioned yesterday. Not all came through. Very different strategy this time. More secondary airports and totally a cat among the pigeons on the likes of MAN and EDI. They drive easyJet out of STN eventually.. Sad if so.
