    It would be a remarkable turn of events if VS gained the upper hand on MAN-SFO from TCX. It was only a few months ago it looked like TCX were aiming at 4x weekly and trying to drive VS off the route...

    Rather than VS gaining the upper hand are they not neck and neck to maintain parity if both parties have now shortened their season ?

    I'm hoping I'm missed a tread that suggests VS are expanding?

    I thought an earlier post indicated that TCX were only 2 x weekly now to SFO for the early and end part of the season whereas aren't VS 3 x weekly for their full, albeit like TCX short, season.

    Considering the media coverage when SFO was announced - Silicon Valley, great for business links etc. - flights only operating for 4 months (it was going to be 7) is particularly disappointing. The only thing you can say is that it's better than no flights at all, and there was some concern VS may not resume SFO (and BOS) in 2018.

    If TCX are trimming long haul frequencies from what was expected, I take it we won't need 8 based a/c for l/h next summer. Will we still require 7?

    Unfortunately, this is the inevitable outcome when two carriers slug it out on a route which is only suitable for one. Neither carrier can afford an extended season, let alone consider a long-term goal of year-round ops.

    I have sympathy for delays but that above is quite frankly the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard as the result of a delay.

    Perhaps the good Senator's best course of action is to provide funding for more psychiatrists in Hebburn!
