Are there any bilaterals in place which were preventing TK from increasing traffic without LO's agreement? Yes. Only those two airlines are designated to operate this route and every increase in capacity has to be mutually agreed to. Was it not for the bilateral TK would probably already be flying ...Jump to post

Do flights to Thailand need to have onboard local or fluent-Thai-speakers as part of the crew, like it happens with flights to Japan or China Flights to Japan and China have a substantial percentage of pax originating on the Asian end. I guess that 99% of pax on Norwegian’s flights to Thailand orig...Jump to post
If Italy denies BA access to LIN, Im pretty sure that any Italian carrier will be denied access to LCY and LHR. For example BA cannot fly from LON to LGA and DCA, are US carriers banned from LHR? TK, SU, LY cannot fly to LIN and Alitalia isn’t denied access to airports in Istanbul, Moscow or Tel-Av...Jump to post
I understand the importance of LCA-BRU for Cyprus but why is Strasbourg - Prague a PSO route? There are some EU institutions in Strasbourg but only like 3 other EU capitals are connected to SXB year round, so why Prague?Jump to post
We should also have in mind that currently LO doesn’t serve any markets in the UK other than LON, it doesn’t fly to Ireland at all.
I would say that before launching routes such as BUD-LCY LOT should focus on feeding their hub by connecting WAW to MAN, BHX, EDI, DUB.
Starting February 18th LO will fly to LCY 12x weekly from BUD (E190) Without connections on either end is there enough business traffic to support this route? I would say that there are many unserved routes from LCY that have more business potential than BUD, especially for a *A carrier, eg. VIE, AR...Jump to post
My bet would be on LHR-DOH-MELJump to post
With the QR tie up and rumors of them going to Oneworld, curious to not see LHR, MAD, nor HEL on the list. Only OW hubs there seem to be JFK and MIA (and do they have any codeshare agreement with AA yet?) LHR - they would first need to obtain slots HEL - wouldn’t make sense as for travel to Asia th...Jump to post

Regarding Nordica flights from Groningen I wonder why did they choose MUC over FRA. Lack of slots at FRA? Lower landing costs in MUC? Business ties with Bavaria? MUC and FRA are LH hub (Europe and Asia/America )...and BRU is SN hub with big network ( Europe and Africa ) I guess that on this forum w...Jump to post

After SIN there are 2 more new announcements from LO:
WAW-NUE - 12x week E170/E175 (yet another German destination recently added by LO after TXL and STR)
WAW-KUN - 6x week Q400 (route started despite proximity to VNO, subsidised by KUN as a connection to a hub airport)
Vienna is a very affluent city with a strong banking sector thus I am surprised by the lack of service between LCY and VIE. Any airlines ever tried it?Jump to post
Luxair is taking over the route from TXL to SCN (to be flown 18x week, operated by Adria)Jump to post

Are there any destinations where Belgian AOC would make it harder to get rights to fly from Germany? Or will they use the SN planes only to fly to destinations where it wouldn’t be an issues (USA for example)?Jump to post
