Quoting David_itl (Reply 1): And why not publicise their cutbacks ? DUB-MAN loses 7 flights a week.
I'd be interested to hear what other routes are being cut (or will have frequency reductions). I remember when FR used to mention them at the bottom of press releases, but those days seem to be gone now.
Routes which are know of include:
NRN-LGW (only lasted a couple of months)
GRO-NQY (was cancelled along with other NQY flights in Dec, was on their website to restart on 29 March, but has since been removed)
According to their website DUB and SNN will see cutbacks this summer. Any news on routes?
Also, I've heard lots of rumours of new routes which haven't materialised yet. Any news on NYO-LGW, BGY-LGW and STN-MLA?
Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

My source has it that STN-MLA-STN should operate between the 29th of March and the 24th of October.
FR912 STN-MLA should land at 12:05 daily except Saturdays, and at 12:35 on Saturdays.
FR913 MLA-STN should depart at 12:35 daily except Saturdays, and at 13:05 on Saturdays.
To be quite honest, I do not understand what FR are waiting for to announce the route (unless they have shelved their plans for the route).
Why, if I may ask? The OP was informing us about new services, so I don't quite understand what significance you are trying to put on service cutbacks. They are two very different things, so why the issue about it?

Quoting LuftyMatt (Reply 14): Took that a bit personally did'nt you? He has a point, I've not seen any threads by you about FR doing cut backs.

Here's a revolutionary idea: why don't YOU post them?

Don't get me wrong Pearson, I'm grateful for any news on airlines starting new routes, and I think its great that FR are adding these destinations.
I think you were missing the point though, BALANCE; he was asking why you are only reporting on the positives of FR. Me personally, I don't really care if they pull a few DUB services, I also don't think it's interesting enough to merit it's own thread. That's why...

As AirNZ correctly and sagely pointed out - the thread is about the new services announced, and that is the topic of discussion. If anyone were to wish to discuss FR routes being cut, they can certainly start a thread on that if they wish to. It is not an issue of balance, and there is no obligation to discuss something the OP never intended.

Quoting FlySSC (Reply 5): GRO-NQY (was canceled along with other NQY flights in Dec, was on their website to restart on 29 March, but has since been removed)
Although GRO-NQY really seems to be scrapped, Ryanair no longer lists any "restarted" route anymore. Previously, they had many routes listed as "ts" (temporarily suspended). Now, they don't list any of these routes anymore, although most of them will actually be operated. For example, until recently, NRN-TPS was listed as "ts 31 Mar", but this has been removed. However, the flight actually does restart 31 Mar and is for sale.

BHD - BRS by FR would also put pressure on WW's services from CWL - BFS. Could the apparent vunerability of Baby (what with cutbacks across the network including at CWL) be the reason that FR is trying to increase its presence in the South West & South Wales market?
