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.

Liverpool airport was closed this afternoon for a couple of hours due to a power failure affecting ATC and aircraft operations.

Two easyJet flights and one Jet2 flight diverted to Manchester. Other flights were severely delayed with a couple of cancellations.

The airport continues to grow. My unreliable source tells me you are about to appoint a Slot Manager. Any more information on that out there?

easyJet are launching 5 new routes from Liverpool this winter to Berlin, Fuerteventura, Malta, Marrakech and Prague. In addition, they are increasing frequency to Amsterdam and Enfidha as well as reintroducing Barcelona as a year round route. However, Larnaca has been suspended for the winter and the planned service to Lyon has been dropped.
.
Ryanair are launching a twice-weekly service to Budapest in competition with Wizz Air. Rovaniemi is also back for Winter 2024/2025

The increase in routes from EZY would lead you to think of expansion, however they have also dropped or reduced other routes and the total effect of this is negative increase. May sound positive but isn't.

You mean the number of routes is smaller than when it was larger (to paraphrase our current prime minister last week)?

The number of based aircraft has not changed over Winter 24/25. Average sector length has increased, hence fewer rotations. Summer 25 is expected to show an increase in based aircraft from 7 to 8.
