FR Destinations 2 Flights Per Day...

Fri Dec 10, 2004 11:36 pm

Which are your favourite FR destinations that you would like to see served by at least 2 FR flights per day from LON instead of the current one flight per day in winter.

For kickoff, mine is MPL, it is the 3rd largest city in France, with great nightlife, surely it can support 2 flights per day even in winter, and with the BA flights from LGW currently suspended for the winter, there is an opportunity for FR.

DUB has DUB-AGP, STN doesn't, at the moment that is.

FR won't operate STN-AGP. I should think the reason it operates from DUB is because no other airline (besides charter) does, hence the higher base price, despite the obvious demand.

what about EI AF/WX they are scheds......JK also do scheds in the summer.
EI go 9 times a week.
I think FUA's flight is "part charter" aswell. so there is quite a lot of competition on the route even in the winter.
They make a fortune off that route i would say as nearly every one travels with golfclubs and there is loads of XBAG. the queues to pay them are even massive!!!
an awful lot of irish people have a place around AGP, so there is huge demand on all the airlines going there

MPL the 3rd largest city in France? You're making a mistake!!
MPL is the 5th french city behind LYS / MRS / TLS
But I agree, it can support 2 flights a day to London.
Flying is amazing!
