I'm not sure if the pricing model is the same as it used to be but when T3 were operating NCL it was said that the breakeven load factor wasn't that high, even with only 29 seats. The starting prices...

I'm not denying that sometimes hub flying can be cheaper or more convenient. The point im trying to make is there is only limited business travel demand from CWL, most of which probably already uses...
