Watch it go to twice daily once they've put paid to RE's service . . .

Any chance of FR flying to SOU?

Pretty unlikely unfortunately.There have been rumours galore of BOU becoming their next UK base so I doubt it.

Quelle surprise! They appear to be the most uncompetitive airline, dumping capacity on routes they've previously not shown any interest in operating and yet they have to cheek to complain about BA & all conventional airlines  Insane

Have to say, I think there is enough demand for FR and RE to co-exist at NCL..

Yep. Agree with GKirk, unless FR go twice daily in order to get rid of RE, there should be enough to go around. RE must think so seen as they will be operating 3 services daily from May.

In related news, Eastern Airways have taken over all of the remaining routes that BA have dropped. I understand they are buying/leasing the J41s from BA.

I believe Aer Arrann may not be operating their DUB service. Can anyone remind me what I said earlier in this thread about Ryanair?

FR will never ever give any market away in the UK to another LowCost Carrier !! Let`s see what will be happen at the european court decision on the subvention of the airport communities to FR.

Any idea if FR is going to use the B732 or the B738 on the NCL-DUB flights?

Thanks,
