  2. Is it true loads on Sarajevo London route are extremely low? 10 passengers per flights?

    1. Yes, with virtually no promotion and high prices it's not a surprise. Fly Bosnia also has significant debt towards SJJ. Don't see this airline surviving long in its current form.

    2. it does not look good for them

      they have two a319 but no idea how to use them; they could handle all their traffic with a single machine at the moment and still had enough slack

      an airbus that is flying less than 8 hours a day is not proftitable anywhere in scheduled passenger service

  4. Looks like the fairytale is coming to an end: https://www.klix.ba/biznis/flybosnia-razmatra-preseljenje-iz-sarajeva-na-aerodrome-u-tuzlu-i-mostar/191008073

    Already announcing they will be flying with one plane only. Talk about profitability when 50% of your flying assets are grounded for the winter.
