They're also improving utilization of their aircrafts. Aircrafts that arrive in LHR/MXP/OSL on overnight flights from ADD and due to spend all day before returning back to ADD in the evening will now return back to ADD via ASM during the daytime. The new flights routed to LHR/MXP/OSL via ASM during...Jump to post
They already do lots of connections so would for this too.Jump to post

Are you not aware of the £180 million that's recently been spent on expanding LTN's infrastructure? Nope, hence the question. What is being expanded, the terminal or the parking positions as well? A lot has been going on at LTN airport over the last five years and it's more or less totally transfor...Jump to post

Shame to see the base close but pleased to see they haven't abandoned the airport, didn't think the Luton route would be going anywhere anyway, it's way too popular. I really like Wizz Air, it's incredibly cheap and even more so when you're in the discount club, baggage rules are quite relaxed, the...Jump to post

I can also see them grow somewhat on destinations that have pretty liberal bilaterals with the EU like they're currently doing in Israel and Jordan. They also got limited presence in Turkey already and I can see them grow there somewhat. Egypt could be their next destination, or maybe Cape Verde. A...Jump to post
I realise my comment may not be that welcome to Exeter airport fans but it does strike me as Ryanair getting near to the bottom of the barrel. Whilst I don't want to derail this thread I wonder what this says about the ability of Ryanair to grow much further. I should point out that my parents have...Jump to post
I don't have the numbers, and I didn't mean to say there was no O/D demand. What I was trying to say was that the O/D demand is so much less than the connecting demand that locals have to deal with inconvenient schedules. And yes, when I was talking about inconvenient times for local connections. I...Jump to post
Just to further the point. The banks at the ME3 are around 2AM to show how little O/D demand is. It works out that a lot of the time, people flying locally just have to deal with getting to the airport at 1AM because so much more of the demand is sixth freedom flying. Even works that way for some c...Jump to post
Ew no thanks, I’ll fly a real airline . Ok, I’m in a mood today as Mrs VS. is in surgery so I will bite. What by your standards constitutes a real airline?

AAB worrying about an airline making money is a bit rich
Mainly b/c Ethiopian gov't never meddled in the affair of ET, and never use ET as a "job program" or give out management jobs based on "who you know" (i.e. nepotism) rather than actual qualification, all these with ET 100% own by the gov't of Ethiopia. That all sounds great, but...Jump to post
If I had to guess, nobody from Japan wants to go to Africa? I mean it's no secret that they aren't fond of us people of darker persuasion. Unfortunately, that's been my experience as well. Anecdotal, but more common than a lot of people might like to admit; there's no surprise if it reflects in the...Jump to post
Obviously not Japanese airlines, but I think it should be remembered that African airlines serve Japan, e.g. Egyptian nonstop CAI-NRT and Ethiopian ADD-ICN-NRT.
Japanese airlines undoubtedly also have much higher costs than MS/ET, so further challenging the case for them.
Probably because, as remains to this day, its core markets are high frequency services to/from Oslo. For example, BGO-OSL about 14 daily, TRD-OSL about 12 daily, and SVG about 11 daily (all rounded). Shuttle tends to denote high frequency operations.Jump to post
FRA has a metro area of almost 6 million people. More than this, "about 38 million people live within a radius of 200 kilometers. Frankfurt’s catchment area is therefore more populous than that of London, Paris, Amsterdam, or Madrid." And with attractive promotional and average fares, peop...Jump to post

the fact is that people have come to expect elevated comfort and services on longer flights.
Based on 521 of Which!'s subscribers answering about LTN between May 2017-May 2018, so 0.003% of LTN's pax in that period. Also before the (on-going) terminal works had progressed. So, not terribly fair, really. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-6090137/Luton-Airport-named-worst-...Jump to post
