I can understand that Saarbrucked is worthy of a few domestic routes but it seems like Luxair should either have aircraft based overnight in SCN or just stick with LUX as their sole hub. Right now they seem in a half-way house but probably the LUX-SCN legs are either annoying pax and/or costing Luxair big piles of cash

But back to topic: the HAM route is very profitable for LG and fares to SCN are usually higher than all the way to LUX. RT fares under 200-250€ are pretty much non existent if there isn’t a sale and every single time I used this service it was rammed full.
Also LG is still full service and offers decent sandwiches and a full open bar onboard
I was surprised Eurowings didn't jump into Berlin-SCN, but then I imagine the market is too small to sustain multiple daily flights. It is also interesting EW's relation with airports near the border. A few years ago I flew MST-SXF on Germanwings but now it is closed. EW also operated NRN-MUC for a while maybe 2 years ago... gone.
I am also surprised they never launched Berlin-LUX. easyJet launched the route a couple of years ago, and Ryanair is starting their own flights next year. So there is definitely non-business demand on that route. Maybe LUX-HAM on Eurowings could be worth trying for them. An advantage is that train is not competitive and it is a short flight.
And of course there is always EIN which has no link to Berlin. Or SXB, but with FKB up the road, that is more understandable.
