    3. Im very much sure easy wont fly to LJU in the winter season. Just look at the fares. Since tickets went on sale, prices almost havent changed, ergo demand is not strong enough to push the prices up. Another reason why i believe U2 wont stay is that Graz was already scheduled for the winter, on the other side Ljubljana was not. A friend of mine living in Berlin even says that most of slovenians in Berlin are from Štajerska region and for them Graz is closer than Ljubljana, thats why they mostly fly in/out from Graz and Ljubljana.

      Would be great to know how bookings till now work,but like i said, fares are a good indicator of the whole situation.

    4. I have noticed that too and I think U2 will not return next year anymore on this route. They got burned badly on it. Poor decision they made.

    5. Yeah, they wont be back. I agree. If Berlin didnt work out (probably the biggest slovenian diaspora - besides London - living far enough that traveling by car is not an option! Sure there are many slovenians in MUC and VIE but both r easily accesible by car) then i dont know which other LCC option could work. Im afraid none, market is just too small ;(((

    6. I agree that slovenian market is too small. LJU doesn't really need new routes, because it can't sustain them. If Adria will keep pushing new routes out, sooner or later it will fail and then 60% or what's adria LJU share?? will be gone. What then? Just 4 or 5 airlines left with 6 destinations left?

      Delete
    7. I disagree. LJU needs new routes, but sadly the only way they could sustain them is with planes that fit 20 passengers, because there is simply not enough demand for barcelona or milan or rome or scandinavia or anywhere else for a plane with 70-100 seats. That's why they don't start those routes, because they're bound to fail due to not enough demand. It would be great if LJU had more destinations, but at the same time, there simply aren't enough people to fly those destinations.

    8. Well, i believe JP can survive on more routes than LCC, because its much easier to fill up 50-90 seats than 180 on a320, besides the number of seats, JP can charge more (and it doesnt offer more than LcC) and still get pax. Im pretty much sure JP can survive on all the existing routes if the average fare on them will be between 130-230€. I would always pay 180€ Return for CDG from LJU etc

      Delete
    9. But i think that BCN and scandinavia would work for the right price becuse flights to CPH are always full like HEL but adria prices are just to high for their offer
      Next year flydubai comes we will see how much time will it stay

      Delete
    10. FZ? Where did u get this info? People are talking about it but nothing is confirmed.
      BCN could work for JP (but i doubt for any LCC) between may and septembre 2-3x/week with crj700.

      Delete
    11. Since the Guy working at LJU disappeared from here we dont get any info about the loads on the new routes ;(

    12. FZ je potrjen dogovarjamo se še za datum

    15. Na zalost ne... samo jih veliko poznam

      Po mojih informacijah je load factor kar presenetljiv in zadovoljiv

      Poleg flydubai se ponovno pogovarjajo z aegenom za lju ath ter se z nekom iz skandinavije

      Delete
    16. Well, Ministry can confirm the negotiations but this does not mean flights will take
      Place anytime soon

      Delete
    17. Aegean ne bo prezivel, nemogoce. Dans so zaceli ZAG, tako da pomojem ni sans.

      Skandinavija vec sans, se posebi, ce bi dobil DY, bi se verjetno izslo, ampak verjetno samo poleti

      Delete
    18. Pustmo se presenetit

      Aegean bi mogoce prezivel sploh sedaj ko imajo v floti tudi q400 ki ga je lazje napolniti kot pa a319/320

      Nevem ce samo poleti ker je veliko zanimanja za skandinavijo... finnair redno polni a319/20/21

      Delete
    19. No upajmo
      Na najboljs, ceprav sm glwde Aegean zlo skepticn, ne zdi se mu verjetno. Poleg tega, sigurno ne bodo zacel v zimskem urniku, za letosnje poletje je ze itak prepozn.
      Skandinavija bi super zalaufala,ce bi se kej v portorozu premaknl.

    23. Ce bo FZ prisel v LJU je to suuper��Kdaj pa naj bi priblizno zacel letos ali naslednje leto?

      Delete
    24. Upajmo da LJU dobi tudi tiste redne lete na japonsko! Jaz sem z ano letel lani direktno iz LJU v tokio in je bilo super! Se bolje pa bi bilo ce bojo to po novem tudi redni leti ne charterji

      Delete
    25. @An.9.08
      It would be nice if you could tell us how did you manage to fly Ana from Ljubljana to Tokyo, because Ana flights are charter flights organized by japanese tour operators and bookable for japanese tourists only, to my knowledge.
      I'm not saying you lie, I just ask for the explanation because what you stated was very weird

      Delete
    26. Maybe they sell ticket to fully fill the plane?

      Isreal charther flight (el-al,arkia) sell also normal ticket from lju to tlv

    27. Torej je potrjeno da fz pride v Ljubljano? Kaksna je pa kaj zasedenost avionov za Berlin? Si res ne moremo obetati zimske sezone glede na to, da je ha grz ze najavljena, lju pa ne?

      Delete
    28. LJU is out of U2 plans for TXL, im pretty sure abt it. Nihce ti tukaj ne more povedat,kaksen je LF (razn,ce bi bil kdo od U2 na tem forumu,kar dvomim :))) ko se bodo leti dejansko zaceli, bo mogoce kdo napisal LF za posamezn dan, vendar glede na cene kart, lahk vidis, da povorasevanja ni.

      Delete
    29. Če primerjaš še lete BEG-TXL in GRZ-TXL (ki sta bila najavljena isti dan kot leti z LJU) lahko vidiš, da je kar nekaj več povpraševanja za poletne lete iz Ljubljane. Ampak očitno so ocenili, da je povpraševanje bolj enostransko in ni pričakovati, da bi se v Berlinu tudi okrepilo (kar bi dejansko poganjalo linijo)

      Delete
    30. Izhodiscna (osnovna) cena karte iz Lju se ni bistveno spremenila (2 meseca po objavi linije so karte se vedno okoli 80€ povratna), torej je bilo prodanih relativno malo kart, zato cene ne rastejo. To je vsa logika

    32. Cene letov na liniji LJU-TXL so bolj ali manj enake kot na liniji GRZ-TXL, za povratne lete pa so cene celo nekoliko višje v LJU kot v GRZ. Na podlagi cen letov tukaj težko zaključimo, da je iz LJU manj povpraševanja kot iz GRZ. Indikator je mogoče samo dejstvo, da ima GRZ že lete za zimsko sezono v sistemu, LJU pa ne.

    33. Kaj pa je s fz? Je to precej sigurbo da pridejo?

      Delete
    34. Po mojih informacijah so pogovori zakljuceni samo še datum cakamo a bodo zeceli z zimo 18/19 ali pa s poletjem 2019

      Delete
    35. FZ lahko poskusi v zimskem delu,ker so dubai in connecting destinations vecino vezane na evropsko zimo, ko ljudje pobegnejo na podaljsan weekend break v DXB itd ter dopust na Tajskem, Filipinih itd. Vendar, ce mislijo zaceti v sezoni 18/19 potem casa ni vec veliko. Ce bodo cakali na objavi septembra, potem
      Je to vse prepozn

  5. Nice growth but they are still really behind PRN, SKP, ZAG ...
