DBA LGW-TEGEL...

Sun Jan 11, 2004 4:44 am

...is this route likely to continue this summer? or EZY and FR too much competition?
Why doesn't LH fly from BER to LON?

Answering your second question, because Berlin is a piss poor area with hardly any big companies and zero potential of high yield traffic.

EW used to fly THF-LCY-THF with Bae146's but even this flight between the two city airports wasn't profitable enough.

One of the major advantages of the DBA flight is that it departs from tegel. Where as FR and EZY both depart from SXF. For most people living in the west side of the city (where there is more money) it is a big hassle to drive all the way out SXF. Also because Berliners don't have any real trans atlantic service they might want to use the DBA flight to connect to a flight leaving from LGW, like BA carribean service.

Regarding the Berlin-London City flight, the carrier used to continue onto Riga and Vilinus, thus routing London City-Berlin-Riga/Vilinus. I can't remember for sure if it used the same flight numbers, but I believe it did.

It depends on several things. Mainly LH uses FRA and MUC as hubs for the big int'l traffic.
So it's more like connecting to FRA and MUC, which are pretty short flights though...

Otherwise, I would have expected more traffic to European "POI"-cities...

BTW, LH's website offers some flights between TXL and LCY, partner airline, flights QF 3981, 3606, 3987 inbound and QF 3990, 3982, 3986 return to TXL...

Don't dare to ask me why QF operates these...on a A319...weird times...

EW never flew to RIX or VNO, especially not from THF.

Don't dare to ask me why QF operates these...on a A319...weird times...

These are BA flights with a QF codeshare flight number.

I don't so much see the question if dba will still serve TXL-LGW in the summer but much more if dba will after the summer get to see the winter again or if their funeral will be before...

Max,

in my opinion must DBA do something to keep customers, for example with a frequent flyer program, I will never again book a flight on them (for the same fare I would also get on LH) without getting miles.

DBA also offer a buisness fare on their website. Many lowcost airlines such as DBA and AirBerlin with their city shedule, are offering more flexible fares for their buisness passengers. Air Berlin also has a simple freqent flyer program.
