Royal Jordanian Switches To SNN

Sat May 05, 2001 6:29 am

just read on justplanes....

Royal Jordanian will switch their New York flights from Amsterdam to Shannon because Ireland granted rights.
 Crying  Crying  Crying
now we will only have the A320 instead of all those A310's, sometimes three in a row.

damn the dutch government and green parties....and the costs of Schiphol..  Angry

How many more carriers are we going to loose..

losses over the last years:
TG / TW / RG / TR / VP / GF / SA / AC and many more.

I hope times will change and we'll get many back again.

greetings, Arjan

Teahan; also this thread has a little bit different point of view.

I think it's really good for Ireland to get new and more flights. In the Netherlands it looks like we get less longhaul flights which always coloured the Airport greatly.

It's really hard seeing Amsterdam loosing airlines to other great Airports.

Hey Plane Holland,

Sorry for my last post, I now actually feel sorry for Amsterdam. I know how it feels to lose flights, my 2nd home airport Geneva in Switzerland (where I used to live) has lost nearly all of its flights over the past few years!  Sad

Kind Regards,

It suprises me EK and AA do not fly to one the major hubs in europe.

Surely there must be demand.

Plane Holland, I disagree with you. AMS hasn't lost many long haul flights operated by foreign airlines lately (the last two years). US returned to AMS and CO started AMS service last year (and you don't mention we've BR instead of TG). Moreover, SQ will start AMS-ORD in August and maybe (still a big maybe) TAM will come to AMS in the near future. Yes, in the past we lost some airlines (like you've mentioned), but doesn't RJ still fly to AMS?? I can't understand to importance of losing a AMS-JFK flight (I rather see an adiitional CO B767-400 or B777).

Anyway, allthough I would like it I don't expect EK at AMS. Currently AMS-DXB is served by KLM twice daily and the market probably can't sustain more flights (allthough the SriLankan option looks viable).

Regards
Laurens
