FR, like U2
, competes directly
on few routes. (By 'directly', I mean competing with at least one other carrier on exactly the same route between precisely the same airports.) In terms of FR
, the main routes on which it directly competes are from DUB
- like to EDI
. In mainland Europe, however, it hardly competes directly at all. This said, it competes indirectly
much more - like, for instance, from STN
: no other airline flies this route or serves HHN
from London, but LH
both fly to FRA
from a few airports in London. So, as I said before, FR
completes directly on few routes, whereas it competes indirectly on many more.
