@LARA_editor Interesting if true, but not altogether surprising. However @weflyjoon not really considered a true LCC by most of the European LCC & regional market players. More of a hybrid which may be its biggest problem, being neither one thing nor the other – a dangerous game at present.
@LuxuryTravelled It was really about how AF could reinvent itself for the next generation of traveller. Bringing in new ideas you can’t experiment with in the mainline brand.  However, it makes a lot of sense to develop these within the main airline.
@TTGJim No plans to go long-haul short to medium term says Heapy. Plenty left Jet2 can do with short-haul. More traffic to eastern Med, Spain, Portugal, etc. Growth to 3.81m Atol shows commitment. Heapy says Jet2 can claim slice of 6m short-haul OTA customers.
@Vinamralongani Majority pax travelling 9W in the economy cabin will now BOB. Can’t wait for another social media outcry about the lack of free meals. Airline have been offering too much for too little. Kudos @jetairways . A hybrid model is what all FSC’s have to move towards to survive.#AvGeek.
@winglets747 20-30% of passengers on Air NZ’s new Chicago flight could be travelling to/from Australia. Australia accounts for 30% of Air NZ’s Houston flight, and 40% for Buenos Aires.
