They have always covered the UK well as we provide very valuable income for them for their onward connections from AMS. I always used to use them from MME rather than BA from MAN to LHR and onward when I was travelling to the Middle East and back. Many moons ago now but always a comfortable and pleasant flight (except once when a Garuda airframe was substituted for the usual DC10).

Presumably they are still benefiting from people who like Schipol as opposed to Heathrow although how their tie-up with Air France has affected this business one can only guess together with the general downward trend amongst legacy carriers since the LCC brigade entered the market. They have, despite all the negatives, maintained their regional presence which means, in my simple mind, that this business model is still working for them.

Already used them once this year to go to France, next trip is Seoul - first time long haul. I find it easier (and more choice) to route via AMS than LHR.

It is curious that they don't operate there. Hopefully the airport can get them back one day!
I think it would be worth them having another go, mind you they would need to expect a reaction from Easyjet like last time.
