Quoting LordHowe (Thread starter): but decided now to put all their planes to work on even more profitable new routes from GOT to Southern Europe.
Makes sense to move capacity to routes with less competition. As far as I can tell from their schedules, they seem to beef up capacity somewhat in June with new weekly flights to several destinations and the addition of BCN to the network.
I doubt however that the HEL route, nor the new European routes out of GOT has showed any profit as of yet. FlyMe seems confident but has as of yet not been up in the black.
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

Wise move, I think. ARN-HEL must have lots of competition with yields being relatively low...? I guess biz travellers prefer SAS and AY on the route so they can get some FF points while enjoying a "premium" cabin service...
GOT seems very underserved despite the city being a bit larger than Oslo (which has services to "everywhere", it seems).
How realistic is FlyMe's proposal to take over Sterling Airlines?
