  1. If bookings were strong then they would have found a way for it to work. Oh well...

  2. They didn´t get slots on Sunday due to works and constructions at the airport this winter.

    1. Nice excuse but I am sure they could have moved them around,if sales were strong. Didn't they also suspend flights from Berlin?

  3. Don't get it why EW wanted to fly to DUS IN ADDITION to CGN. Whoever travels to/from DUS will also go to CGN. Its like half an hour by car between those two airports.

    EW should simply incerase the CGN frequencies!

    3. EW is not flying to FRA but maybe you meant LH?

      CGN should be 5 weekly to also cater for business pax. Then you can leave out DUS completely.

  5. The real raeson why EW cancelled is that it will comence oprations out of Mostar this fall...the deal between OMO and EW has been rached, and the officiall announcement of the routes will be held next month...righ now only one route has been named, it is Stuttgard, and the other one is unknown yet, but everyone is suspecting that it will be Dusseldorf.....also OMO began talks last week with Wizz over the possible introduction of flights from Malmo in Sweden.......all of tihis is a result of Government of Herzegovina-neretva canton securing necessary funds for subsidising the flight.

    Go OMO!!!
