Did a daytrip ANR-CGN-ANR today with two friends. This morning we had the whole aircraft for us as we were the only pax on board 8-) The flight attendant told us that they were picking-up 21 pax in CGN to continue to RLG.
On the way back in the afternoon 16 pax flew RLG-CGN, two stayed onboard to continue to ANR and we were 5 to board at CGN.
The cabin crew were again very friendly and the service excellent, much better than a lot of other big Airlines.
They also told us that they need at least 20 pax onboard to be profitable and that the London route is almost always full or nearly full while the route to Zürich has some up an downs but is mainly good...

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,
All my posted timings are local !

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.

The flight is cancelled. But not the ANR-ZRH one.
