MEA-707, they are getting rid of all the F50s to concentrate only on LCC flying with the 737s. They cancelled the contract they had with BU to fly the west coast routes, and also a couple of routes in northern Norway.

GKirk, you must be joking. Maybe during the football season, Fridays and Mondays for a punter's full week end, as Newcastle has some fans here, but two smallish cities serving one smallish city? Don't think so....

Caravelle...not the football fans, but the oil/gas etc. Been a big market between NCL and Norway since the days of Braathens. A LCC would increase this market, especially if they didnt operate NCL-SVG.
Norwegian have operated a LOT of charters between NCL and Bergen recently, for shoppers to the Metro Centre I believe.
You'd be surprised. Maybe an Oslo-Bergen-Newcastle flight?
Or Wideroe operating seperate NCL-OSL and NCL-Bergen flights.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Split is a nice old city built by the Venetians (it's a small Venice) and the Italians then (the old name is Ragusa) that has become Croatian at the end of the WWII when Italy was defeated.
It's in the Dalmatian coast in the Adriatic sea.

Exactly. WF has the kind of aircraft to fly between destinations of this size. Norwegian got rid of their F50s, and using their 737's would be like wearing a poncho for a napkin. The business community is interested in daily connections, and I can't imagine ever that there would be enough pax from Oslo AND Bergen to NCL on a daily basis.

KaiGywer: You've got it a little mixed up. The SAS Group cancelled the contract DY had with Braathens after SAS bought Braathens. DY also operated two F50s on PSO-flights in Northern Norway in 2003 (Tromsø to Lakselv and Andenes), but cancelled that contract when they figured out it wasn't such a hot idea after all. The PSO-flights are now operated by Widerøes. Norwegian did operate SVG-NCL in 2002 with F50s, but cancelled that route in December 2002 when Widerøe became too tough a competitor, and DY was too preoccupied with their LCC-operations in Norway to spend time on NCL. P***d a lot of folks in NCL off! The airline flew a lot of groups (school kids mostly) from the UK to Norway during the winter and summer.
I don't think business-fliers will switch from Widerøe on the SVG-NCL route to DY, which does most of their international flights WAY off-peak. Widerøe has a really good product, with connections from the rest o Norway with SAS Braathens

Does anybody knows if Norwegian will continue to fly to Venice also in winter 2004? Thanx in advance.
Dear CroFlight.. my idol was is not Mussolini.. and i know the history well. Dalmatia has become Italian before Mussolini took over Italy and anyway the Dalmatians as all the other Italians payed a big tribute to the Reunification of the country. Should we remind the thousands of Italians killed by yr idol Tito when he took over Dalmatia at the end of the WWII? Don't you remind that people there were forbidden to study Italian or to print newspapers in Italian? I remind also that Tito wanted Trieste.. Anyway you should know that the origins of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) are dated to the Roman Empire, and
