Hello

Easier to spread your attention and kindness to 5 pax than to a full loaded aircraft 8-) With 5 pax you can easily make a personal talk with every pax and still do your service, how do you want to do that on a fully booked flight? So in my opinion not a very hard task to be friendly and do a good service if you only have 5 pax.

But maybe that is the advantage of the low load factors...

Greetings,
Hi,

Re-reading my post I understand that I should have written it differently. I wrote "again" not to refer only to the first flight that morning but also to my previous experience with them a few weeks ago. On a nearly full flight to ZRH the service was as excellent as it was on the almost empty flights :)

Total June figures for CGN - RLG - CGN are in average 20 PAX per flight. In general I would say, that his wasn't that bad, but when the flight ANR - CGN is pretty bad, the total route ANR - CGN - RLG - CGN - ANR is not profitable. So finally, no surprise that they stopped it.

For filling up cruises you don't need daily flights. Maybe there still is a deal but more like a charter?

I doubt that VLM will fly to Osijek, though, let alone base an aeroplane there.
