I flew from TFN - LGW on G-TTOE last week, how very funny - for me anyway

IF the Canary Islands are to be served from, say, the UK by no-frills airlines, then I don't see why they can't fly overnight, thereby further increasing both aircraft and staff utilisation.

0055 - 0505; 0530 - 0930...

Not the best times, perhaps, but I can't imagine half a day being put aside for flights from the UK to the C.I.

There seems to be a range of charter flights from FRA to TFS leaving in the early/mid-morning, i.e. 0200-0400, so I can't see why it wouldn't be OK with no-frills airlines.

How confortable are there seats in both cabins? Is C class worth the extra money? I will be flying on the SSH service this December.

There is even late arrivals to TFS/TFN. The Germany-Baleares and Germany-Canaries corridors are working round the clock. When means of transportation are available 24/7 nobody would care if it's a midday or a midnight departure especially when sea and sun are targetted !!!

It will be worth dropping a trip report once you are back  Wink

People go over to visit their villa owning relatives on the Costa Blanca and stay for a weekend but the Canaries are a 4+ hour flight and from Northern England and Scotland its close on 5 hours! a bit far for a 2 0r 3 or even 4 night stay.

Not so! I went to Hong Kong for a 4 night break - that's 12½ hours there and 13 back!!

A flight from Northerly UK airports to the Canary Islands run in at close to 5 hours! Thats a medium haul flight!

Instead of picking at small things like that Orion, why don;t you do what every other post in this thread has asked you too, and answer the questions posed to you?

I still believe that 7 or 14 even 21 nights is the prefered duration for a holiday in the Canaries

You may want to back that up! Stats etc?

LCCs work with short routes like LBA-EDI

So how come nobody serves that route then Orion?

Very good point HT and thank you for backing up my viewpoint

What viewpoint? You (Orion737) never replied to my post!!!



Quoting Orion737 (Reply 43):
I worked for a company called Martyn Holidays in the early 90s who were a tour operator specialising in holidays to Portugal and Madeira and visited Madeira on several occasions.

Orion this is where you let yourself down. The early 90's. This is 2005. There are routes served by LCC carriers from regional airports which simply weren't viable years ago. The market has changed. You have to realise this, and soon!
