Anker Report, 27th August 2018 edition: https://anker-report.com Wow really interesting. I didn't know that page. Thanks. Very interesting to see the shift from Spain/Portugal to Croatia/Greece/Turkey. Mainly flocking back to Turkey after the various atrocities that reduced traffic. In this period ...Jump to post

Where do those figures come from? Thanks.
Noteworthy that TK has up to 2x daily (depending on the day) on NAP-IST.Jump to post

the fact is that people have come to expect elevated comfort and services on longer flights.
Based on 521 of Which!'s subscribers answering about LTN between May 2017-May 2018, so 0.003% of LTN's pax in that period. Also before the (on-going) terminal works had progressed. So, not terribly fair, really. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-6090137/Luton-Airport-named-worst-...Jump to post
So long as regularly updated with staff present throughout, it's a considerably better than nothing in an emergency-type situation as no IT.Jump to post
Presumably these have more connecting traffic to/from EK then.Jump to post
Probably a low risk, short-haul, low frequency holiday-focused route. BA has a number of these from LHR.Jump to post
I'm rather surprised they've picked a plane as big as a 737-700 for this route, must have some seats blocked off since the runway in St. Pierre is rather short so it's weight limited. Why not use the CS-300 for this route? It does have the range and probably performs better from the short runway in...Jump to post
Ryanair is now Italy's number-one airline.Jump to post
Hub = passenger connectivity from hub and spoke.
Base = aircraft and crew are based there.
Wizz has a lot of bases, but no hubs.

Airports play a vital role in working with airlines to determine viable routes. That is why there are huge events, such as Routes, that focus on this. And obviously many, many, many meetings between the two parties beyond such events. Airports can often provide key data, knowledge, and info to aid a...Jump to post
LO, LCY and BUD would have all done a lot of analysis on the potential of the route and its likelihood of working. Will it? Who knows. But it's good to wish it well rather than second guess. On a city-pair basis, over 1.5 million flew LON-BUD-LON in 2017, i.e. a PDEW of over 2,000 excluding seasona...Jump to post

I am sure I read somewhere a few months ago, Pegasus a Turkish Ultra Low Cost Carrier, had lower operating costs and better margins than Ryanair. Not according to their annual reports. Pegasus: non-fuel CASK € cents 2.54 and Ryanair 2.10. We'd also need to consider average sector lengths. Pegasus' ...Jump to post
In terms of Australia, I wonder if Ethiopian could become a competitive contender on the Kangaroo Route. According to Great Circle Mapper, LHR-ADD-SYD, at 11,500mi is only 1,000mi more than the great circle route between LHR and SYD. Why would it want to? Very competitive routes (UK-Australia) and ...Jump to post
Look at PDEW per quarter, look at average fares per quarter in itself and in comparison to MCO/TPA, think of how easy it could be to travel on a local basis RSW-DFW/DAL, think of how much demand could be stimulated through nonstop service and lower fares.... Of course, also consider connection traff...Jump to post

Presumably it'll primarily be for charter passengers, who'll use LUX as a pretty central location to visit places in Europe by coach.Jump to post

The only way to fairly compare fares is to consider average fares (including ancillaries) and their average sector length. These are all obtainable, with a simple calculation, via each airline's annual reports. Based on 2017 and including ancillaries: EZY: GBP£62.90 (about EUR71.70 based on an avera...Jump to post
