I think this is just typical.
I just wanted to add two examples, but the guys of DPTS also have it on their website, so I just copied it from there:
"Geneva will be affected in a far lesser extent than Basle or Zurich by the network reduction. Only three destinations (Alicante, Sevilla and Berlin) will be dropped, while frequencies to Basle and Lugano will be reduced and Paris and Rome even increased. In pure Swiss excellent management, the route Geneva-Berlin now declared unprofitable was considered a few weeks ago as doing so well that a third daily rotation was to be added this summer. And while the three axed destinations were served solely by Swiss without any competition out of Geneva, the airline prefers to add frequencies on capitals already served by other airlines, especially Paris where Swiss faces the eleven daily Air France flights and of course the aggressive competition of EasyJet. Time will say how good those choices are..."
Swiss later said to several reporters that the Berlin route was profitable but they wanted to change from Saab 2000 to ERJ-145 and that the aircraft would not be able to fly nonstop from THF
, so they had applied for slots in TXL
and didn't get very useful ones and therefore decided to drop the route because they thought they couldn't operate ERJ-145s profitably from/to TXL
. I'm not an expert but I really doubt an ERJ-145 can't operate a 1h30min flight out of THF
