  1. It may become more popular, and busier in the summer...
  2. Actually, Alexis Gourvenec had a look at creating an airline in the 90's, but quickly decided it was too risky.
  3. It would be rather difficult to get lost.... the stations are next to each other, only the road to cross ;-)
  4. Wow... €900 for the top cabin... each way! Makes Commodore on Pont Aven "affordable"...
  5. I know that Normandie has been earmarked to operate on the Le Havre route, but surely it would also be a better stopgap solution on the Spanish routes. Not ideal for sure, but with a better passenger offering than Etretat.
  6. Cap Finistere does carry foot passengers, but because of capacity limitations, bookings have to be made over the phone and are subject to yield management. Having said that, the odd sailing is sometime available to book online, for example the 1900 Plymouth to Santander on March 16th is currently available to foot pax online.

    E-tickets

    BF introduced the early version of e-ticket over 20 years ago. As long as you have you passport, and booking reference, that's all you need to check-in. Now having a paper version if purely for "comfort" so you can see details of your trip and accommodation. The documents that were sent to customers were called "travel itinerary" not ticket, and you could have as many reprinted as you wanted.
  8. While it sounds logical to move Normandie to Le Havre, could we see her taking over the Spanish services instead, and move the the Baie de Seine to Le Havre only service? Though I am sure there would be any issue with linkspans (unless replaced?)...
  9. I would recommend any sailing out of Stockholm, the trip through the archipelago is simply amazing, about 4 hours before you reach open sea, going round thousands of islands.
  10. On www.brest.maville.com they state that one of the propeller is out of action. Pont Aven is to stay in Brest for a few days according to the article.
  11. Southampton-Brest-OPorto, La Superba
  12. Spotted the SNAV ADRIATICO in Barcelona this morning, now under Trasmediterranea liveries
  13. GNV has been licensed to operate services to Cuba from Florida and in French newspapers said they may transfer the Rhapsody to operate to Cuba.
  14. Pont Aven could offer though a later departure time from St Malo, around 12 thanks to her speed. Arrival could still be around 18h30 in Portsmouth. This would probably be more attractive than the current 10h00 departure.
