Re: Norwegian Announce Dublin-Toronto Hamilton

Despite the perceived 'issues' from the other regional 737 transatlantic routes with not exactly stellar performance... i await claims a YHM will be a rip roaring success and likely to be imminently launched from the other 737 transatlantic ports....

Re: HU expands European presence, flying a rotating triangular route into Edinburgh and Dublin today June 12

Loads on first flight very light for an A330. Quite a short lead time since launch. Presumably will pick up in time. Wonder which component of triangle routing will prove most popular.
