The newspaper "Rotterdams Dagblad" has an article about it (can't find it online anymore but it was published on the net a few weeks ago).
actually never officially requested slots, probably because they already knew that they wouldn't get the flights. Anyways, an increase in RTM
traffic could relief AMS
The market would be there, and historically Seen Rotterdam used to have a lot of passengers to New York in the age ships ruled the Atlantic Ocean.
But as stated, Amsterdam is not that far, so why really launch an extra flight?? It will most likely create empty seats at RTM
and that's not very profitable. Those who need to fly to RTM
or NYC will be able to by connecting through AMS
. So why not send 1 777 instead of 1 767 and 1 757??
