|Quoting Boysteve (Reply 4):|
A new Airport opened in Sheffield less than 10 years ago, and it has been a flop, despite Sheffield being one of England's largest cities. As much as it pains me to say it as I am a proud Yorkshire man, but LBA will never be anything more than a regional airport (poor position), and as Sheffield has flopped, where is the success of Doncaster going to come from?
|Quoting Orion737 (Reply 3):|
I suspect now they have killed off the competition, FR fares will go up as they have the monopoly. Poor passengers loose out and FR wins again
|Quoting Orion737 (Reply 16):|
Regularly the early and late flights from LBA-DUB are priced at £49 or £69 each way, exculsive of taxes and they can rise to well over £100 each way, .
|Quoting Egmcman (Reply 8):|
For an airport to succeed it needs to have a large population with disposable income I don't know about the demographics of Sheffield
|Quoting Orion737 (Reply 10):|
I cannot see many business destinations or full service carriers moving in. This isnt an area like LBA which has a lot of business travellers.
|Quoting 7LBAC111 (Reply 17):|
But this is supply and demand. Of course the early and late flights will be that bit more.
