      @10:46 Yeah thats why LJU wasnt reduced even in the slowest month of the year - February when many other routes from SKP were reduced. I am sure this route will go to four times per week once they solve the problem with their neos.

    Riga and Copenhagen will be very good additions to the network. I hope OS participates in the auction. I always wonder how few Slovenian travelers have traveled to Vienna? It seems that the passengers were mainly transfers from Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania.

      If the JP passengers to Vienna (Slovenes) were mostly transfers for the OS flights, it seems that LH Group wants to develop Swiss into LJU, apparently ZRH would work well from VIE.

      ...I mean ZRH probably offers some better links for Slovenians than OS hub.

      @10:45 Why would i fly via LJU to VIE when i have 14 weekly flights directly to VIE from SKP?

      Delete
    4. Anonymous11:01

      Yes, but many people did this despite the availability of a direct flight.

      Back than OS had monopoly between VIE and places like TIA, PRN, SKP, TGD. Of course not everyone was willing to pay insane OS prices.

    Whhhaaaaat??? And people are still seriously debating whether SLO needs a national carrier or not. Like I, and many others have often said: NO, THANK YOU!

      It means that p2p travel has recovered so much that it almost replaced all the connecting traffic that JP was carrying 5 years ago.

      Vsi, ki potujete turistično in, ki vam čas potovanja ni pomemben, ne potrebujete nacionalnega prevoznika. Poslovni del osrednje Slovenije, prestolnica države, obiskovalci kongresov in tuji potniki (ki bi rajši prileteli v Slovenijo direktno), pa ga potrebujejo. Kakšne povezave ima Slovenija z Evropo v jutranjih urah (med 7 in 9 uro) pa si lahko ogledajo vozni red LJ letališča.

    Transavia also sends A321NEO but is this in their booking system and timetable or is only one-off routes.

      They said that the neo will be deployed to LJU. Maybe not immediately but once they get a few of them it will.

      Yes, but please keep in mind that as of now, Transavia is only selling as many seats as it has on the 737-800 (186 seats?), so that in case of it going tech, they can easily switch the 321Neo for the 737-800 without having to bump some 40+ people of the flight. They will continue doing so until they have a few of the 321Neos and can easily swap them around in case of going tech.

      @Anon at 12:15, I know they are bookable. But they only sell up to 186 (?) seats on the 321Neo, rather than the full capacity. Once again, so that if the a321neo goes tech, they can send the b737-800
