Although I am very happy for TPA
to have gained this service, let's also not get carried away here with talk about future capacity to far and away lands. It's just not very profitable for a carrier to be flying long haul to a city of TPA
will be marginal at best for Edelweiss. As long as TPA
is on the line of marginal
with any carrier, routes will be pulled as soon as a w/b aircraft can make a little more money elsewhere...
Let's enjoy this moment in time though. And hope for the best...
BTW: Thx for all the pics and video guys, NICE JOB!
Does anyone have a pic of the BA and Edelweiss parked next to each other?
I'm almost positive NW may have had an A330 at TPA as a Superbowl or Outback Bowl charter 4-8 yrs ago...
Service, you are prob right...
You know what would be cool, but probably far fetched? KL/DL doing a 4 days/wk AMS-MCO and 3 days/wk AMS-TPA schedule...Tour Operators could be selling a lot of Open Jaw tickets as well.
