The CAA stats show that LBA
has averaged around 6 pax per flight since its start in the Spring, so it was only a question of 'if' rather than 'when' the route was going to get the axe.
|Quoting Humberside (Reply 18):|
One would hope so, but then bmi and SWISS dont codeshare on EDI-ZRH, and I dont think bmi and SAS codeshare on LBA-CPH
would be logical additions (right capacity, right aircraft, right product) except for LH
(and therefore LX
) supposedly doing all they can to pressure BD
not to start such services to prevent dilution of their flights from MAN
. On the other hand, I doubt BD
care too much about SK
's opinion of LBA
poaching a few pax from MAN
given that it's been common knowledge for some time that SAS are wanting to get rid of their share in BD
as soon as possible.
I suspect the LIL
aircraft will sit on the ground for a few extra hours each day or BD
will just add an extra EDI
Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.
