Strange Flight: PRG-MRS-BCN?

Tue Aug 24, 2004 10:49 pm

This flight is operated by Czech Airlines, but it doesn't seem to be for business travellers, just for leisure. They fly this 4 weekly.

How can they make any profit here?

If you draw a line on the map between these cities, it will be a straight line.

Serving two cities with only one aircraft, why shouldn't that be profitable? Especially if the loads for each of the cities isn't filling the plane...

Thanks for pointing out where those cities are.....  Laugh out loud

What I mean is that for high yield business class travellers it's not so interesting to make a stop in MRS. You don't see those 1 stop routes in Europe anymore with a mainline carrier.

Correct me if I am wrong, but now as the Czech Republic is part of the EU they should be able to sell tickets on the MRS-BCN sector. That should help a little bit too.
