  1. PA goes to Roscoff twice a week, almost empty. Why not jump on one of those?
  2. (in order not to neglect a route/port in Winter. 2 returns for each per week, and the weekly relocation sailings to the other port could prove popular!
  3. Armorique could adopt a year-round PA style double-triangle... Poole > Cherbourg > Poole > Cherbourg > Plymouth > Roscoff > Plymouth > Roscoff > Poole!
  4. I still think converting the Cotentin was a great plan. Is it certain what was reported in the media, that she will be sold when the flexlettes arrive??
  5. Plymouthians would not love this plan!
  6. Will Poole - Cherbourg ever exist regularly in future if they are now saying Cotentin could leave the fleet when the flexlettes arrive? If Barfy retires, could it become seasonal? or disappear altogether? (I doubt they would want that to happen)... Or, be served by purely by Liberation, so essentially killing the route for Freight?
  7. PA for anyone new to the service. GA for anyone who has done PA a million times before like everyone on here, because we are all just soooo inquisitive as to what a Flexer is like
  8. So, if the desire was there, they really could make you feel like you were in a totally different world once onboard. (one to the other)... (Not just a small Galicia with Breton colours, different wallpapers and Brittany menus, and a small Salamanca with different menus and a Normandie Tourist board leaflet stand at reception!) 😉
  9. I had a query, I am sure Jonno may be able to answer; about the level of customisation possible internally? So, I think there is a great potential here, despite them both being baby flexers, and almost identical externally... But I wondered how much scope is there to change things inside if desired, which are not just cosmetic?..... So if you ignore obvious unchangeable things such as lifts, and also the cosmetic items such internal decorations, materials, and placing of seating etc - is there the ability to change the actual interior structure such as the placement, or width of a staircase, the size of a room/hallway, number of internal doorways/portholes, number of entrances/exists to a restaurant etc?? OR - is the whole interior just a carbon/laser copy cut from the same mold?
  10. With all this creative financing around newbuilds, and 'options' to buy/give back quite customised vessels... does anyone see Stena making a bid for BF outright at some stage!?
  11. I was always under the impression that Bretagne was 26m wide, and had a max Pax capacity of 2,056 passengers?!
  12. I cant help thinking the regulations would be a nightmare to agree. It appears not to be fly very high at all - so serious potential for collisions with other large vessels at sea, especially when taking off and landing. There would have to be agreed "sea sky" lanes, surely, and pretty serious observation kit onboard?
  13. I was thinking BF may use her directly Portsmouth - Le Havre at some point in the schedule.... maybe a part of 'exchange' agreement for the NEX, if BF wanted some limited passenger capacity for Le Havre this year...
