Would disagree. FlyLAL is effectively a low-cost carrier serving ultra-price-sensitive markets, primarily ferrying tens of thousands of guests workers from Lithuania to London and Ireland (and some holiday traffic to Munich and Milan too).

At the moment, *A has a stronghold of routes in Eastern Europe. I am travelling around that area quite a bit and frankly no other alliance stands half a chance there.
