Not surprising. Not long ago I flew Los Angeles to Barcelona on Norwegian and the flight wasn't full, plenty of empty space. I guess Level has those same low load factors, even more due to the fact that on average Norwegian is just a bit cheaper than Level so more people will pick Norwegian. It's o...Jump to post

But the non-beach/cruise/sightseeing traffic probably isn't sufficient for any of the Canadian carriers to serve BCN year-round, and AC can connect business/VFR passengers through its JV partner hubs in Europe.
