      That is really bad. last May there were no JFK flights.
      Plus BEG growing by 4% means that JU lost a lot of market share this May compared with last.

      JU is moving in the wrong direction - period.

      They are alienating once loyal passengers with a drop in product quality, fees, service... while fares remain unjustly high.

      I really do believe that a fresh leadership at the helm of the airline is long overdue. Credit goes where credit is due, but things are deteriorating rapidly and alarm bells are ringing all over...

    Good result. This is a healthy growth.

  3. May didn't have anything more than May day celebrations and that's mostly locals staying local. Pretty good increase then for the whole year so far. Hopefully June & July maybe even August have same or higher growth too. That 5.5 million won't look so hard to achieve.

      May would have been over 10% if JU didn't cut so many flights.
      I think Wizz Air saved the day here as their second A320 boosted some numbers.

      I am sure June will be quite good.

      You are forgetting that Easter was in May last year.
