Looks like Vueling may be expecting quite a few Welsh based Liverpool and Real Madrid fans to travel to Paris for the Champions league final on the 28th May. Screenshot_20220505-210324_Vueling.jpg

Anyone know why there was a Barcelona flight today? The aircraft flew on 11th May CWL - PMI. Was this cancelled on 11th and this flight was an empty leg back to BCN.

Yep i think it was Vueling positioning the aircraft back after it went tech the other day.

I had joyful trip this week courtesy of VY for the first time in 2 years!

I travelled to ALC on Tue 15 Feb and returned to CWL on Sat 19 Feb.

The flight on the way out was quite busy, probably around 90%+ full with a few empty seats toward the front. As for the return, I was reliably informed there was 97 on board - which personally for me was a nice load to allow people to spread out - and 160+ on the return to ALC.

As always it's good to see this route continuing for all the years it has and of course standing at 6 weekly this coming summer!

VY are an asset to CWL and they need to be protected from the approach of the ULCC practices of W9 at all costs*

What I will also add is the yield must be decent for this route as prior to travel I regularly checked the seat map and it seemed many people had chosen a fare that included a seat reservation, or had chosen to pay for one. Additionally there seemed to be a lot of in-flight food and drink sales from the catering available, which is always good to see on a low-cost flight.

Well done VY - long may your partnership with CWL and the travelling Welsh public continue!

(*I have a flight booked with W9 myself in September to ACE, so am not anti-Wizz by any means!)

Two months after my initial post, and now within 6 months of the W22/23 period beginning, there are still no flights on sale from VY.

I normally use VY every February for a visit to the Costa Blanca, but due to the ongoing delay I have now opted for W9 flights.

Am still hoping there is just a simple delay in releasing the schedule rather than VY pulling the plug on CWL winter flights altogether...

:unsure:

Seems VY have loaded the first two weeks of November for W22/23 with a 3 x weekly ALC and 2 x weekly AGP

Let’s hope the whole winter is added eventually!

Sadly, no sign of ORY continuing.

That's good news. Personally I'd be surprised if Paris continues into the winter.

I spoke too soon!

The full W22/23 schedule has now appeared:

- ALC 3 x weekly (Tue, Fri, Sun)
- AGP 2 x weekly (Tue & Sat)

Great to see AGP continue year round with VY.
