Is DE coming back to MSY?
 
Have not heard anything about Condor returning and it is not currently on their schedule.

I guess this is an annual thread, but still no announcement and we are well past the announcement date from last year.

I'm sorry to say that Condor may be in major trouble. Thomas Cook (UK) has declared "insolvency" and Condor is part of Thomas Cook. Many Europeans have been stranded while on vacation and, apparently, the emergency funds have been insufficient to cover all the resulting necessary re-bookings to return passengers home.

I did receive some flight offers from Condor in the past few days, but I would hesitate to book anything long-range with them.

Condor received a bridge loan from the German government in September:

Good news, glad they are back. I still can't figure out the schedule (missing out on Oktoberfest) but will still be taking it for an easy trip.
