The government would prefer it if no "new" flights where started at LEY. Only transfered flights from AMS. That was the main idea of LEY, as overflow for AMS. So if FR starts a base at LEY without having one at AMS it's kind of pointless, as capacity is very limited (regulatory)at LEY as ...Jump to post
:checkmark: HV seems to be the only one to be eager to move. KL could indeed be the great winner, one of the reasons Easyjet is complaining and for instance, Ryanair wants access to LEY, but now the EU kind of agrees that there will be a preference of airlines freeing slots at Schiphol will get slo...Jump to post
4x weekly EDI, 3x weekly BIO and 2x weekly PEG. Hyped about EDI-RTM. Espcially with the improved RTM-buslinks it's a no-brainer for me to skipp Schiphol. If I understand correctly, they are also dropping Amsterdam to Helsinki, Katowice, Sofia, Tirana and Reus. What is the market for Perugia? VFR? Th...Jump to post
So they want to have the cake but eat it too?
KQ should get stable first before talking big.
And low-cost Eindhoven is also an hour by train with two trains an hour troughout the day.
It's a event with less impact then a international football match in the Kuip or Amsterdam Arena. Although viewed a lot around the world, the actual show is not that big itself.

I think the Netherlands in itself as a major European trade hub and one of US's major trade partners in Europe creates a huge market for transatlantic business related traffic.

I once counted all the star-alliance flights to AMS. It has 50+ STAR flights a day, it's a mini hub in it's own regard. With a future A-terminal & Pier I wouldn't be surprised if a star-lounge will be part of the plans. Some ittinararies are even through AMS on star. For example to Poland, Croat...Jump to post
Case in point: BA at LHR and KL at AMS are golden, while JetBlue is being screwed. Slots generally can be commercially traded and purchased. B6 can purchase or lease slots just like any other airline. There is a false underlying assertion in your comments in that these slots have been given away fi...Jump to post
American paid TWA $$$ for the BOS-LHR route, and almost immediately began downsizing (777->A300->757) even before the JV with British Airways came about. It seems strange that of the 8 flights between Boston and London (LHR and LGW) each day, only ONE of them is operated by a US Carrier (DL). Why i...Jump to post
There are no route authorities between the U.S. and the U.K. (or the EU for that matter). American is allowed to operate any route between the U.S. and U.K, just like any U.S. or U.K. airline can. Very weird ramblings by the OP indeed. Everyone can open a route under the open-skies The EU–US Open S...Jump to post

Ever heard of politics? America is not very popular in large parts of the middle east The distance is long, so market has to be worth it. Morocco is not middle east.

Looking at schedules, train can bring you from Antwerp to London at 8:59 and leave back at 19:34. So the plane schedule, while being a bit better, does not give you much more time in London it seems. Still total travel time by plane would be 2 hours while train would be close to 7 hours. Surely for...Jump to post

Classic Ryanair: Give me route-subsidy or lower cost or I'll get out of here. Classic Gunboat diplomacy.Jump to post

Plus if you want to take anything larger then a cary on bag the fr option cost extra, plus the hassle of rechecking bags if you fly with different carriers. Not all, like Ryanair for example , interline
Plus a night sleepover in dublin cost money as well, is that worth the savings?

but as cheap as BA has been behaving in recent years under Alex Cruz you'd think a chance to save 4000 miles daily on fuel wouldn't be missed! And if VS and LH and AI can adjust within hours of the NOTAM you'd think BA could do it within 4 days after them. Something more to this than I think we see...Jump to post
Because planes might already be planned, schedules made and staff placed. it's a thing if planes arrive hours earlier, or later, it requires time to adjust. it's not a simple snap of the fingers and lets fly straight again.
