What kind of loads have they been getting for their seasonal DUS service? What is so appealing about Dusseldolf?
Plus it seems the Germans would rather fly LT and connect throughout the country then LH...kinda like MP vs KL in YYZ also
|Quoting DYK (Reply 6):|
The LTU sales rep in YVR has indicated this past Auguast that LTU will no longer fly seasonal to YYC and beginning winter 2006 will also go year round into YVR
|Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 8):|
Makes me wonder if Kim Yong Il shows up at DUS from time to time to give all LT employees a brainwash.
|Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 8):|
Sorry but I can't take this airline serious anymore, first they tried to earn money while offering flights to PVG and PEK, they failed badly. Then they tried to copy Air Berlin's city shuttle service, they failed again and the three daily flights to Vienna were cancelled before they started.

LT has very good reputation in Germany.

My flight from DUS-YYC got cancelled twice last December and apparently didn't start service until 6 weeks after the original launch date. I couldn't understand why LT (or any airline) would even consider doing a charter in the winter to YYC (or YVR for that matter), there's just not enough touristy things to do in Western Canada during the winter, unless you ski. Most national parks are closed as other tourist attractions. I can't see why LT would start a year round YVR service if even the major airlines downgrade during the winter. I could maybe see a YVR-YYC-DUS, but not just one or the other.

I still believe that the biggest mistake that LT did was to get rid of the 767... The A330 is such a large plane (with LT's seating...) and thus hard to fill.
|Quoting DYK (Reply 10):|
There is conex traffic and donate forget there is a large German population in BC and immigration from Germany has remained very consistent over the last 7 years. And yes there is a lot of skiing traffic as well particularly to the interior mountains. Calgary was a disater from what I hear and Vancouver out performed expections during the summer months. I think YVR would be a better option than YYZ.
