TAP flights from Portugal to LCY ending [will BA Cityflyer capitalise?]

It appears they cease at the end of the summer timetable, perhaps there’s an opportunity for CFE to operate a night stopper LCY-LIS-LCY using an 8pm or later more off peak slot.

What is a TP flight?
Who or what is CFE?
Thanks

I’m guessing PT is Portugal, which would mean that TP is TAP Airlines, and the reference to LCY implies that CFE is City Flyer.

TP - TAP Air Portugal.
CFE - BA Cityflyer.

Having almost zero concept of punctuality, I dumped TP a while ago.

The BA Cityflyer flights from LCY to FAO are amongst my favourites. Nice relatively spacious aircraft, usually on time and frequently inexpensive in both cabins.

I’m nitpicking with a smile here, so don’t be offended, but grammatically your post has the opposite meaning of what you seem to have intended:

”Having almost zero concept of punctuality, I dumped TP...” means “Since I have almost zero concept of punctuality, I dumped TP...”

I suspect you actually meant “Since TP have almost zero concept of punctuality, I dumped them...”

You are correct, of course. In fairness, I can speak 6 languages with sometimes interchangable grammatical awareness.

I suspect he or she actually means “Since TP HAS almost...”!

I am fairly sure there is only 1 TAP so I suspect this should be in the 3rd person singular

If TAP do not see the business case for winter flights then I doubt BA Cityflier will see it either

Not so clear cut. See the discussion here:

TP operate 4 sectors per weekday LIS-LCY-LIS. BA could operate 2 sectors per day LCY-LIS-LCY as a night stopper which may appeal to LIS based business travellers to LCY for a business day. This would be using half the number of sectors.
