The timetable option does not list any flights... funnily, the option brest still exists, as you said... I would call them, if I were you (do an international call from Austria to Ireland, much cheaper than locally calling them up... they will rip you off otherwise with these dubious numbers!)

If you go to the timetable section of the web site, which is separate from the booking section, you can still select Brest from the list of destinations, but it won't bring up any timetable, it effectively just refreshes the page. This would imply that Brest, unfortunately, has been removed from FR's summer timetable. But, as Mrniji says, the best way to check is phoning them. Hope it works out ok.
I've just checked Brest airport's website...STN isn't in the destinations list.
It definitely seems they've dropped the route.
You might try flying out of Dinard instead (it's in Britanny).
Good luck !
The route Stansted-Brest was given up from the 29th of April.
You couldn't find any information about it in the news section, but there was an article about it on a main international economics newspaper.
This routes was one of the routes ex Buzz that FR started last year on 01st of May. But this route, as many others from STN like CRL, MST, GRQ, RHE, OST has never performed well, so they decided to give up the flight.
STN-GRQ is the route I miss most. If only my family had 1000 members....I'm sure it would work. Now they let me take the train again from AMS to GRQ, in which it's forbidden to smoke since 1st January!!! Every two weeks the same problem.... but..... that's life I guess. I better stop smoking now..
STN-TLN was a ex-Buzz route that FR had never flown. After they shut down Buzz for one month (all April 2003) they decided to not restart many Buzz routes on 01st May 2003 and TLN was one of them.
Others routes in France was Grenoble and Bordeaux. In Germany DUS and AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA main.
"Basically all the airports that are major or 'semi-major'! they quit."
That's true, but in Germany for exmaple they kept Berlin SXF that it's a "semi-major" airport (a new market for FR) and they cut AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA and DUS mainly because FR was flying from the two secondary airport of these cities, HHN and NRN.
