Re: Did TP cancelled SCQ-LIS before even started it?

I have to agree with our fellow user from Santiago. Portugal is too small for a 2 hub operation and looking at the near-future prospects, people all over the country should be more worried if they'll have a job and food on the table rather than a direct connection to Milan. I followed this case on t...

Re: Austria to introduce minimum price for plane tickets

Ryanair has been trying to promote BTS as the alternative to VIE for well over 10 years. It has some routes, but it never really made much impact on the Vienna market.

I'm not sure if Ryanair/Lauda supporters in this forum realize that 850 EUR a month is already hard to live with in the neighboring and cheaper city of Bratislava. In Vienna, that base salary is simply abusive and bordering in slavery.
