  1. London and South Western Railway and Steam Communication Between Le Havre, Southampton and London. This is at "Southampton Quay" in Le Havre before the WW2 bombing.
  2. You were hoping that DFDS would relocate to Normandy? Dunkirk's reputation is not good either because it is a Grand Maritime Port in the administrative sense of the word with its share of strikes and outrageous trade unionists. Then we must not exaggerate either on the strikes. It's an obsession with you. It's worse at SNCF... and let's not forget that Brittany Ferries has experienced some as well.
  3. For claims it is always easier to block vital ports for France (Le Havre, Nantes, Dunkirk) rather than blockIng Ouistreham or Cherbourg. Thatcher did what was necessary to muzzle abusive union demands. I dream of it for France because our country dies of this !
  4. In any case, this is a trade union reality in France ... but this is not the point.
  5. Important BF ports are very small French Port. You saw these situations before Margaret Tatcher
  6. Opération "ports morts" : Calais, Dunkerque, Le Havre, Rouen, Saint-Nazaire, La Rochelle et Marseille bloqués (francetvinfo.fr)
  7. Brittany Ferries is interested in getting out of her gains... we hope that we will soon announce a new France Ireland route !

    It must be well because has to listen to some it would be enough to transfer the port of Le Havre to Arromanches;-) Rest assured, when I say that a strengthening of the Cherbourg/Portsmouth service is desirable, it is not at Poole's expense. Besides, could Barfleur make a round trip from Cherbourg/Poole day and a return trip from Night to Cherbourg/Portsmouth?

    I always thought that Le Havre and Ouistreham could share market share even if these two route complement each other more than they compete. The addition of forces could strengthen these two lroutes, knowing that coming from the South of France the travel time is substantially equivalent. The Normandy Bridge is paying, but it is not certain that it remains so after 2025, the date of the end of the concession. For me, a two-boat operating scheme would maintain 3 departures a day from Portsmouth (1 to 2, to/from Ouistreham, 1 to 2, to/from Le Havre). This can be an opportunity to strengthen the

    Thank you for this additional information, but you say without justifying. What prevents the Cotentin from being opened to passengers? There are garages, there are cabins, there are public spaces... if I travel with my car what prevents you from getting on board? Ditto if I am a pedestrian knowing that a bus can get us on board as on Etretat.

    Note that BARFLEUR will be able to use the double ramp in Le Havre... it hadn't happened since NORMAN SPIRIT.

    The question is why not send Etretat to Cherbourg on 31 December and assign the Cotentin to Le Havre at the same time?

    This is not new. I don't see what prevents opening traffic to passengers in April. In fact, the information I have goes in that direction. Cotentin can quite accommodate passengers.

    The project has always been to transfer Cotentin in place of Barfleur. We are not immune to further change. BF likes to change the program along the way.
