Oh, damn, sorry... I must have confused with another Venetian hehe
Their route map seems a bit extensive for only 4 aircraft... are they forgetting one of the LCC rule? Small number of destinations with lots of daily frequencies. FR has 4 daily to Stansted for example.

Flights will be operated by Futura Intl Airways with B737-400s from what I know and they only want to serve most of those routes twice or three times a week. I heard they would only get three B737-400s.
