Condor U.S. flights pulled?

Thu May 21, 2020 11:12 pm

I was doing a flight search to Germany this summer from PHX and noticed DE is no longer operating TALT flights

BWI/MSY/PIT/MSP/FAI removed for 2020 season

PHX/ANC/PDX/LAS operates September/October

SEA resumes end of June

Is this a scheduling glitch or are they removing the entire season?

All per http://www.condor.com

They’ve also cancelled most Canadian flights too. YYC/YVR and it’s planned YEG launch all appear zeroed out.

YYZ is still scheduled though.

I noticed this too. After my planned LHR-FRA-PHX got cancelled in April I opted to take a voucher based on Condor telling me that the PHX flight in April 2021 would be bookable at a certain time. That time came and went so I called them again. The person on the phone admitted that she had no idea if/when PHX flights would happen again, so my voucher became a cash refund.

I also noticed the flights removed are the Omni Air destinations, lease cancelled?
BWI/MSY/PIT/MSP

Anchorage is removed and Phoenix and Portland are only in October so they’ll be removed too. Only keeping Seattle and Vegas for now, and those happen to be the only year-round destinations.

Fairbanks removed too obviously.

There simply is no viable demand for the flights at the moment. Even September depends on many factors outside of the control of the airline.

Didn't they convert many planes to cabin cargo transports? They seem to fly a lot from Asia to Germany with urgent medical supplies. So those planes might just not be available for passengers right now?

And there’s a global pandemic and borders are closed...

True germans cannot enter the US easily. That is not expected to change soon. Condor will have to miss their summer passenger high season to the US it seems.

And a lot, though not all, of the flights to US coastal cities require cruise passengers to make them viable. By no means all cruises will be operating, and a proportion of the passengers on those that are operating will/have already cancelled as they see cruise ships as mobile virus incubators right now.

Greetings from Anchorage... and there's basically no reason to come here this summer.
The cruise season has been almost entirely cancelled by all the cruise lines.
We're starting to reopen things this week, since our number of cases has been really low.
But there's still a lot of distancing rules in place.
So I'm not at all surprised if Condor doesn't even show up one time this year.
Ditto Icelandair.
