  2. Oh and then they will be back from 31. March to 31. October with the double daily flights :(

    Wish they had 2 per week but throughout the year...

  3. This is worrisome, I guess it's because of Brexit.

    1. Brexit has not even happened yet. I guess it's because Dubrovnik is extremely seasonal destination.

    2. BA are losing a lot of business, by the downgrading of their product!

    3. It's because Dubrovnik turns into a ghost city during winter.

    4. Yes but people will come to see the set of Game of Thrones. I am sure someone else will step in.

    5. The reduction of BA is particularly funny as even in winter with much less demand of course compared to summer the fares to Croatia aren't anywhere near to 19 EUR or similar. Even in winter, those airlines flying to HR request quite high prices for often short or very short flights. You would think that yields to Croatia must be high compared to other destinations.

    6. I think they will use the slot to increase ZAG as now they have a virtual monopoly.

    7. Actually no. Zagreb is being reduced by them in winter as well.

    8. What do you mean? It's the sme as last winter.

    9. No they are not. There are one to two flights less each week from January to the end of March but the days change each week.

    10. So it will be five weekly?

      Delete
    11. Some weeks 5 some weeks 6.

  4. Ja neznam cemu cudenje. Dubrovnik is a very nice city, but definitely not a city break destination in winter. The weather could be very nice, but it could be very chilly with bora. Brits that would love to get warm in the sun, have many other warmer destinations. And btw, they are cancelling only the very slow weeks.

    1. Yes, but how lovely are the days when it is warm in Dalmatia during Winter and there is plenty of those days. No tourists just nice views over the adriatic and the incredible landscape and beautiful cities (not lets-go-to-the-beach-warm but nice warm)
