    1. They have been many many times head to head with Wizz Air. And they have lost every single time. This is beyond silly.

  7. what about the GVA service? I don't understand why they will terminate a service that they have no competition and introduce one that they will have direct competition.

  8. So instead of GVA in the far west, they are going for a north-central gateway to Serbia in hope of attracting the massive ZRH-centric traffic, Saint Gallen and neighbouring cantons. In theory it makes sense as the catchment is bigger. In practice, against W6... will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
