    1. Even if the route is not profitable? Montenegro taxpayers keep losing.

    2. Montenegro won what exactly?

      Delete
    3. They won better connectivity with the world, now who wants to visit Portugal doesn't have to connect in Istanbul or Vienna.

    4. That's not a win. That's business.

    5. Keep in mind that noone goes to LIS on 7 days...

    6. And business can't be winning? o,O

    7. Anon 12.15 true but they do go for 2 weeks!

    8. One flight a week is hardly a winning.

    9. It's still 100% more compared to what they had last summer. I call that a win!

    10. Convenient math.
      Seems like you call lot of things a win.

      Delete
    11. Expensive long flight, only once a week, no codeshare, no connections. It will make hole deeper by a few hundred thousand euros. Nice win!

  2. Nice! Schedule time looks quite similar to Bulgaria Air and Air Moldova. It´s actually a very smart move to make the airplane work during the night instead of sitting on the tarmac all night long. This is all thanks to the Portugal 1 hour difference too.

  4. Not Istanbul? They had announced their intentions for Lisbon and Istanbul.

  5. This is so random.

  6. They can offer connections not only to TIV but also to BEG.
    So the potential customer base for this route is greatly increased.

    1. So true, who doesn't love spending time at TGD from 01.20 to like 06.20.

      Delete
    2. I don't see how will they offer connections to TIV when they don't fly between TGD and TIV?

  7. Not only is YM the only true legacy carrier in ex-YU but they are also extremely proactive. Good for them!

    1. And the most organised carrier in ex-YU with clear vision and strategy. Not to mention the state-of-the-art fleet which is mono and distinguishable.

    2. Plus most beautiful, creative uniforms in the region.

    3. plus 150 mil € xmas present from mne gov

    4. First thing customers look for when buying a ticket: creative uniform! Said no one ever.

      Delete
    5. If uniforms did not matter then airlines wouldn't be spending so much time and effort to make good and nice ones. It's all part of brand awareness, look it up.

      Delete
    6. Of uniforms did matter as much as you claim, Ryanair and Wizzair would have invested hundreds of millions to create most amazing uniforms. But they don't matter much, so Ryan and Wizz focus on something Montenegro Airlines don't think about: profits.

      Delete
    7. Wizz revised their uniforms a year or a two ago when they made them slightly more sophisticated. You can do both, be profitable and good looking. Same way airlines try to have nice and interesting liveries. It's all PR.

      Delete
    8. It is true that YM has one of the most elegant cabin crew uniforms in the region:

      That said, anon 15:53 raised a very positive feedback. He is absolutely right when airlines actually do care for their staff and invest in the airline culture, logo, look and general vision.
      If you look closer at the YM uniform you immediately spot the Montenegro heritage: flag, the red colour present and the yellow representing the sun. The design itself doesn't seem to be overwhelming. It's all a matter of details and sophistication.

    9. There have been airlines that had better service, better liveries and fancier uniforms yet went bankrupt. Show me an airline ticket search website that has "airline uniform" as a search field, and I'll believe TGD-LIS route will be profitable.

  8. Flying this route ONCE per week has no sense. I do not get it ...

    1. Makes sense if they are selling seats to a tour operator.

  9. I think this is very bad news for Star Alliance who are currently charging 480€ return ticket TGD-LIS!
    Crazy!
