IMHO FRA Airport always displays Polish cities with Polish name first - so e.g. Katowice/Kattowitz, Wroclaw/Breslau - I guess the same will be with BZG - so Bydgoszcz/Bromberg.

PS. Interestingly enough WAW Airport always refers to cities that used to belong to Poland before the WW2 only in the official non-Polish names - so it is Vilnius not Vilnius/Wilno or Lviv not Lviv/Lwow (just an observation - I really do not want to start a political discussion).

It seems that as of the summer '15 timetable, LH will not serve Rotterdam any more, cancelling the MUC-RTM connection.

It seems RTM will be served ex MUC by bmi regional. Other new bmi routes ex-MUC include LGG, BRN and more frequency on the existing BRS route.

Also MUC-BTS will start again, this time operated under wet lease by JP (maybe with the CR7 they are getting from CL?)

So is this the "new" version of IQ (Augsburg Airways)?

Not really. The bmi setup means LH only pays them if someone books the ticket. The Adria/JP setup to BTS is probably a return on the remaining value of the CR7. The IQ wetlease meant LH paid whether the flights were sold or not.

yes, rumours has it they should be using Cityline's CR7. Interesting construct indeed.
It seems BTS is attracting lot of creative routes - besides JP to MUC we'll also get BTS-VIE on FlyNiki from April onwards...

But BTS-VIE is a private jet route.

i still can't believe such a route will exist
apart from the price factor , the link between BTS and the city is awful .. as much as i love flying i would choose the bus..
hope they will fill the plane with transfer passengers

I think I can drive VIE - BTS much easier than flying it when you factor all the extra time lost at the airport. 30-45 minutes tops if I'm not stuck behind some Hungarian in the left lane!

While I fully agree that the public transport leaves a lot to be desired, c'mon, by taxi it's 10 from the city centre and takes max 10-15 minutes on the ring,

Understood...

Sending off small planes to secondary (if not tertiary) destinations like in this scenario does remind me of the IQ scenario. And we know how that did end up...

Well maybe I am slightly biased since there was a point in time where I did work for IQ (many, many moons ago).
