From 25th March, Lufthansa Cityline will operate daily services between NCL and Dusseldorf using CRJ a/c. More information available at the Newcastle Airport website. I think this will be a successful route. Any thoughts on this?
BTW Previously, between 1993 and 1999, Eurowings and Gill Airways served this route under a codeshare agreement.

Anyone wanna give there opinion on how successful they think this flight will be?
So on March 25th @ NCL, we have DUS,ORK,and DUB services beginning with an ERJ145 being put onto the CPH route instead of the DH8 currently used.
Also in the summer, BRAL will begin daily Oslo services using ERJ145 a/c.
So looks like a busy period @ NCL.

Thom@s, you dont know what an EMB RJ145 looks like??? Check out some of the pics in here. Oh yeah, you want to avoid the F50 when you go to NCL in the summer, Im sure BU still use a 737 on the sunday afternoon flight SVG-NCL-SVG, or you could get the BRAL ERJ145 from Oslo.

Ok, sorry for asking. (I feel like an idiot.)  Smile

Ehhhmmmm...here are my options:

SVG-NCL: 2 hours on a Braathens F50. (Pretty Cheap)

SVG-AMS-NCL: KLM B737 to Schipool, change plane, F100 to NCL. (Pretty expencive.)

SRP-OSL-NCL: From Stord to Oslo on Saab-340 (1 hour) Change to BRAL ERJ145 to NCL, (2-3 hours) Price: unknown, but probably very expencive.

SVG-NCL evening flight:...Hmmm, never heared of that. The tickets haven't been ordered yet, so I'll check it out. Thanks for telling me about that.  Smile

What about BU 737 to ABZ from SVG then BA DH8 down to NCL, oh well maybe its just fate that you will be on the "nifty fifty".

LXLGU, Yeah maybe they should have made it twice daily but I still think it will do well.

I don't think the SVG-ABZ-NCL thing is gonna happen.
Fate? Nah, just bad luck. (Better not bring alot of handluggage.)  Smile

Eurowings were not too impressed with their experiences in NCL, either with their own metal or with the Gill codeshare. With the schedule being similar, my concern is that LH has increased the costs of the operation using the nice mini-jet, but not able to squeeze that much yield out of the market.

I am sure that you will enjoy looking at it.

Re: Thom@s

Braathens still uses a 737 on the Sunday evening (leaving SVG at 18:05) flight from Stavanger to Newcastle.

Yeah, I found that out too. We've checked the flights, and unless something else turns out to be better (which I think is very unlikely), We will be cruising off to NCL in a BU 737-500 this summer. Big grin

So long F50. (Maybe another time.  Big grin )

I owe you one GKirk. Thanks.  Big thumbs up

No probs, you should at least try the nifty fifty across the North Sea for the comedy factor. By the way I hate the Norweigan Air Shuttle livery, it looks so old

Couldn't agree more with you GKirk. But until Braathens can decide what livery they like, they'll just have to wait.

Ooooops. I just realised that was SVG confirming the SVG-NCL flight, not GKirk. Sorry SVG. Embarrassment
