That's pretty impressive given that PA was off service for a month during the period. Ed

I wonder whether the direct link to Ireland has had a fair bit to do with it. Companies can save a fair bit on fuel and ferries if they no longer need to transit the U.K. I took a close look at the HGV's aboard Normandie on Monday, most had Spanish & Portuguese plates. I have a feeling that'll change when the E Flexers appear.

I'd really like to see BF serve Gijon with their LNG facilities too especially with a ship named Galicia... BF could always opt for a 4th E Flexer to supplement Bilbao.
