Quoting TommyBP251b (Reply 1): WILCO737 was allways a great contribution to it, althought he somehow seems to have disappeared. What happened to him?
I had eMail exchange a while a go with him; he no longer is actively posting here on A.net.

Have the recent reductions in routes and frequency by AB been discussed here yet ?
Some of the routes taken over from X3 see closure end of June like HAJ - KLU also CGN - VIE.
PAD - STN gets reduced to 1 daily (from twice daily).
4U is closing HAJ - ZAG end of September completely, while flights on Thursday are discontinued already during summer.
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !

Quoting tolmachevo (Reply 3): Is AB attempts to create a hub at TXL having an effect? How are they doing anyway with the TXL hub concept?
Here a short overview on the current situation:
AB operates early morning flights from cities in Northern and Eastern Europe into TXL (ARN, GOT, OSL, CPH, HEL, DME...), obviously in an effort to feed into other flights there. Currently, 22 a/c are based at TXL, operating in 6 daily arrival and departure waves. AB obviously prepares the launch of a true hub at the new BER airport, and feeding from Northern and Eastern Europe makes perfectly sense due to the geographic location.
Still, Berlin is a large O&D-destination (20.6 million O&D-pax in 2009, only slightly behind MUC with 20.8 million). TXL only sees 1.7 percent transit passengers (which should be all AB , thus meaning roughly 5 percent connecting AB pax). Once BER opens, this number should rise, as TXL just don't have the facilities (yeah, Terminal C has a transit zone, but most AB domestic flights arrive at Terminal A).
