Flew it in May but trying to book it again for next week just notice that VY's double daily VLC-CDG is not offered anymore......

Any insider about it? Something to do in prep for VY-XG merger? Just a poor performer? Why dropping both flights at the same time? Why on the peak summer season?

Route is not on sale from last winter. Loads were poor compared with other routes ex-CDG although I think the reason is the strategic plans of the company in order to close CDG base, they started cutting some freq and routes. It is known that the merger airline (VY+XG) wont
estabish any foreign base.

Competition in that route has risen a lot nowadays, UX, VY, XG (ORY) and FR (BVA) and yields should have fallen.

They still do ALC CDG daily, but I suppose unless you get a really cheap fare on VY, the extra 170km journey isn't really worth it.


Breakfast in BHX, lunch in FAO, dinner in TIP, baggage in YYC.

I've tried XG and they're really nice if you want my opinion. Check out my trip report in the adequate forum.


I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!

A bit OT; does anyone know if XG or VY will operate to Malta from Barcelona or Madrid this winter? Thanks.

Not correct, I flew it on the 2nd weekend of May'08, evening flight into CDG and midday flight out of it. Quite strange they dropped it coming into the summer.

With the cost of fuel, driving 350 km is not worthy even getting ALC-CDG for free.

Surprises me they still offer CDG-GRX, besides Alhambra I can't see anything else on there

Have tried them also, they offer the 2 things I care the most when flying LCC's (seat selection & main airports)

Well, I thought they dropped earlier.

According to Spanish Statistics Institute (www.ine.es) 117.007 french tourists came to GRX last year while 75.522 came to VLC. Alhambra is one of the most visited monuments in Spain.

We are not taking in consideration another type of traffic but this gives us an idea, moreover competition on VLC-PAR route is stronger. Probably yields in VLC were lower.
