Don't know if it was already posted, but LH has abandoned Lille. Its not flown since beginning of August but I thought it is only over the summer vacations. Now I read on a German forum that they will not come back.
Seems that with the KLM/AF merger nobody has a change in France anymore.

more than AF/KLM, I think Lille's position on HIgh speed trains network kills the market.
And being between CDG and BRU, Lille Lesquin has never been a major pax airport. Just a good regional airport

Trident, it may be a cultural thing. In French (at least) the word "abandon" can be less strong a word than in English. Yes the poster is German or from Germany but I thought I'd give my two cents any way as I, as a Frenchman, was not shocked by the use of that word.

OK guys, I looked at my my dictionary http://dict.leo.org/ and it gives around 50 translations for the vern to abandon. And one translation is "beenden" which means to end in German, and thats quite exacty what I meant with to abandon.
So sorry for sounding too harsh, that was not my intention.
