That route has unfortunately been (is being?) discontinued.

Anyone knows why this exists?
They are both industrial areas.

Wow, it's so interesting to read here. I never thought about such things, but now I found out so many new to me flights.

Hah, my wife laughed out loud about the headphones one.

I always have my big noise cancelling headphones on during a flight. I hate hearing other passengers and the engine noise.

So while she reads a book, she often has to repeat things to me while I'm watching a movie.
