"Gdansk, who wants to go to Gdansk? There ain't a lot there after you've seen the shipyard wall."
Adam, what a (fill-in for yourself) that guy is... I've read numerous negative threads on a.net about FR
but did not have any personal opinion since Ryanair is absent from this region and haven't flown it myself yet. Quite frequent post was "I have nothing against Ryanair, but I hate O'Leary" I'm slowly getting the picture...
It's twice as stupid for him to say thing like that, because I believe it was HIS Ryanair's idea to start serving somewhat unknown destinations and actually create a market there. I don't want to be equally disrespectful and offend anyone so I won't be specific, but just have a look on their web and you'll see quite a few destinations that might cause the "What on Earth could you possibly see/do in _____" association.
I think there might be potential for another LCC to serve Slovenia, since there's plenty to do and see all year round. Prague will be within days served by 4 LCCs from within the London area (EasyJet, BMI
baby, flybe, EUjet) so there's no reason why LJU
shouldn't as well. Compact size of the country being an advantage in this case, I think.
There's even potential for (at least seasonal) intra-newEU LCC service and maybe down to Croatia as well, but it would have to be done quite differently than short-lived PRG
service by Wizz Air. There's no wonder the service was shut down after a month or so. There was exactly 0 ad campaign to promote the service and I don't think anyone beyond aviation enthusiasts actually knew about Wizz Air flying PRG
