It is already February and Vueling's schedules for March 26 and onwards is still not published yet. And you cannot purchase tickets for flights beyond that date.

I know it is a big hassle and costly to reaccomodate passengers when
schedule changes. But aren't they losing a lot of business from plan ahead customers for doing this?

I know Vueling has very little staff and they are totally full with work. This might explain why they simply didn´t manage to finalize their schedule. But I am sure they will do the next days.
And it is indeed bad because you loose reservations. But don´t forget that the longterm reservations are just the cheap ones. So what you mainly loose is load, not revenue.
Apart of that they are at home in classic summer destinations Barcelona and Valencia. And I am sure they will fill the flights anyway.

Dont forget that BCN summer slot availability is really tight - and they are probably having difficulty in maintaining their winter schedules. Next year they will have historic summer slots, which will make it easy.


The world is really getting smaller these days

I wondered about the same thing, it almost looks like they don't have a schedule at all.

Does anybody have some info on new flights they will offer? Any additional slot requests from BRU maybe??

Are they in any sort of financial trouble?

If they don't come up with a schedule soon, I will have to make other arrangements. I plan to fly Vueling for part of my trip but cheap seats
on other airlines for the rest of my trip are running out...

I emailed them in Dec and was told that schedule would be available early
Jan... Emailed again late Jan and have not received a reply.

Sounds like another broken promise.
