Not on NYC-LIS it isn't. That is why TP consistently earms a revenue premium on the non-stop EWR-LIS, as opposed to the JFK-LIS.

Really surprised they are adding the additional NY frequency to JFK and not to EWR, which is where the majority of the Portuguese people in the NYC area are (and which commands a revenue premium, at least in the non-stop flights). Their relationship with United must really suck. JFK is the preferre...Jump to post
For what is worth, traffic in LHR declined 0.7% in July. January-July growth is only 1.4%. A rise in domestic passengers has partially offset a larger international drop (-3.2% APAC, -1.8% EU, -1.4% LatAm). https://www.ttgmedia.com/news/news/heathrow-traffic-hit-by-fall-in-asia-pacific-passengers-18...Jump to post
I think the routes to Germany can be easily covered by FR/LAUDA bases if indeed there is demand..As for London City, with TP gone, BA can add LIS/OPO to its route network and increase their dominance..The OPO-BCN/LYS is already covered by Easyjet,Vueling, Transavia France, so i dont think there wil...Jump to post
LCG enjoyed a 10,7% growth compared to 2018. I call that a healthy growth. Your other statements are only your persona views, and if you have proof of that, I ask that you provide a link to back up your claims. Those are not my views. You can find plenty of recent articles about subsidies in LCG: V...Jump to post
I think wasn't mentioned so far, but LIS-DME will change to A321neoLR and LIS-TLV will increase to twice daily, also with A321neoLR It is surprising TAP didn't tap into TLV much earlier. Iberia/El Al is 3 daily (except Shabbat, only 2) with IB flying daily the A330 and about 10 weekly with Air Euro...Jump to post
GRX was only an example. LCG is closer to the sea than SCQ and is enjoying a healthy growth too. Of course, you had to mention poor little VGO.

Btw Embajador3 and LXwing, I would appreciate your precious comments in this thread, since this one is locked:
STR is a bit more surprising but I wonder if FRA is too close. Iberia Express also served briefly MAD-STR a few years ago. I think IB is still operating MAD - STR. For the LIS - BSL sector, there is a strong competition with easyJet. True. I thought STR was chopped along with other German destinati...Jump to post
Btw next summer OPO-MAD will be up to 18 weekly flights each way (!).
To put things in perspective, in 2004 (oldest data available in AENA), MAD-OPO had 190k PAX. In 2018, the route had 860k. At this pace, MAD-OPO could surpass LIS-OPO to become Porto's second destination only after Paris.
TP is definitely on a hot streak in the last year or so. I trust that this is some pretty important network cleanup, getting rid of a bunch of underperforming routes. Could couple with more regional additions in addition to SCQ and the MAD increase. Quick note, might want to edit the title to 'drop...Jump to post
Finally TAP announces LIS-SCQ, the biggest gap in their Spanish network. They are also dropping LCY, currently flown from both OPO and LIS, and CGN, STR and BSL from LIS. OPO-BCN and OPO-LYS will be also chopped, and OPO-MAD will be increased to 6 daily (!). Madrid from OPO has boomed over the last ...Jump to post
Hasn‘t there been a lot of complaining from citizens about how there were too many tourists these last years? In the end the complete „Airbnb-zation“ of city centres isn‘t a pretty thing and Spain, unless something unexpectedly dramatic were to happen, will remain a top tourism destination. This.

As usual, you forget to mention other airports whom are still enjoying healthy traffic figures. Including GRX with a 15,1% increase, compared to 2018. GRX is an "inland" airport. Quite similar to a place like SCQ (although at a smaller scale); a mix of international cultural tourism/city-...Jump to post
Well German tour operators did overplay it this year quite a bit, especially for the areas popular with Germans. Mallorca has some form of cult status and attracts the wealthier customers. You can see that SPC is not affected, as it also caters to different customers than the rest of the Canaries -...Jump to post
Well, I think many tourists got tired of the Canaries even selling you dog sheds for a quite high price. I have a few favourite places to stay on each Canary island, but when 3 Star places on Fuerteventura cost more than a 4 Star near Girona, it is no decision at all - especially if you are not goi...Jump to post
I think the numbers above are in no way showing anything of major concern. Perhaps the Canaries may be in a small decline, they are further out, and nice but not anything you cant see right in the Med. Concern is domestic VS international.

This is very common in Ryanair flights nowadays. It has happened to me a few times.

I would assume the worst thing is the "perceived inconvenience" of the long change to London. People often underestimate the time spent getting to the airport and actually getting on the plane. That makes a 1 hour flight sound much more attractive than a 3:30 train journey including 45 mi...Jump to post
No, Algerian airlines wont take over as the routes are subject to traffic rights.
