At nearly 200 posts in, maybe it's time for some facts.
I looked at two comparable destinations (IMO); Jamaica (Montego Bay) and Fuerteventura (one of the Canary Island group)
Both are reliable winter-sun destinations
Both are islands, offering no land travel alternative, and no option for a short ferry ride either.
Today, Sunday 21st February
FUE schedule flights today total 28 and include;
Corendon (AMS), DAT (Denmark, x2 flts)), Easyjet, Edelweiss, Eurowings, Finnair, Iberia, Jet2 (x3 flts), Luxair, Neos, Transavia, TUI Jetair (x2 flts), Voltea (x3), vueling and Wizz.
Oh yes, and Ryanair..... x7 flts from five different countries.
So, no BA, AF, SK or LH, and even IB can only manage a single service.
Meanwhile, over in the Caribbean, there are 50 flights listed for MBJ today
Representing the USA; AA(x8 flts), DL (x6), Southwest (x6), JetBlue (x3), United (x2), plus one each from Spirit & SunCountry
Representing Canada; SunWing (x 6 flts), WestJet (x4), Transat (x2), and one each from AC and Rouge.
Representing Europe; Condor (x2), plus one each from Eurowings, Thomas Cook (Sweden), TUI Jetair (Belgium) , and Virgin (UK)
There were also two flights from Caribbean Airlines (BW) and one from COPA (Panama) just to complete the picture.
Apart from the LCCs cluttering up the picture on both sides of the Atlantic, the picture is pretty stark.
US travellers can select from the same airlines they would fly within the USA, short or long haul, for business or pleasure.
Canadians and Europeans simply do not have that option.
Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is anybody's guess.
Fun Fact; G-VYGL is actually an RAF A332 MRTT/KC3, seen here in it's original plain grey camouflage, operating a Thomas Cook charter to Gran Canaria, with no evidence of the air-to-air refuelling pods. More recently it was caught in a basic Jet2 livery, but it was back at Montego Bay just three days ago flying TB302 to Brussels for TUI Jetair (Belgium).
Nothing to see here; move along please.
