Not great news as a link to a hub is so needed, but must not be as important as we make out to passengers if they are not using said service. If KL and now LH both cannot make a hub link work then I don't think anybody ever will.

Lufthansa have cut back a number of routes and frequencies due to lack of aircraft availability. Not necessarily to do with commercial performance. Infact, sales grew in line with forecast. I would expect to see it return once the new aircraft are delivered in the next couple of years.

There are known engine issues with the P&W engines installed on the CRJ aircraft which Lufthansa use on the Liverpool service, which will also affect some of their A320neo family aircraft, meaning they will be short of aircraft overall next year.
Iím sure this service will return once these issues are ironed out which is expected by 2026 at the latestÖbut hopefully Lufthansa will return before thenÖ

It will be interesting to see what sort of other routes have been dropped if it is a capacity issue (although ironically it comes the day after they order a load of A220's). Presumably those at the bottom of the pecking order.

True enough, but you may find EI offers a tiny fraction of the worldwide reach that LH, KL, AF, BA etc offer and DUB is not in the same hub league as FRA, AMS, CDG or LHR as we all know. It might be OK for a handful of TA destinations but beyond that do EI send anything East these days ?

I don’t disagree eggc, but the fact remains that Dublin is an important hub, particularly westbound. Factually, LJLA retains a hub link.

Think we'd all have prefered LH as another option to EI/DUB. maybe if a/c shortage is an issue then LH may return as the perception was that loads were OK. We'll see...

LH certainly provides the right options going east or south. Average Q3 load factor appears in line with LH published network average, although yield of course is unknown. Whether changes at Liverpool and Bristol are also related to the creation of the new Lufthansa subsidiary - and possible shortage of pilots - as well as aircraft shortages is moot. It’s brave of LH to order another 40 A220 in the light of Pratt issues imho.

The only alternative, the Embraer 290/295E2, has the same problem.

Jet2 handling

Reading indeed swissport are recruiting a jet2 service delivery manager for Liverpool. Iím guessing itís for a year before they bring in their own staff and equipment
