    I can't help but wonder if the EU carbon-emissions scheme is behind these announcements?

    I thought so too, could be this or their business model. [ demand? ]

    The net cost of the EU emissions tax on a flight is trivial compared to things like fuel, crew and aircraft. I do not believe that the tax is causing routes to shut down.

    I'm sure you're right. Lessened demand in Europe due to the recession.

    Just the conspiracy theoriest 1/10th of me thinking out loud.

    This tax is definitively a factor in many decisions being made about closing or reducing certain services to the EU right now.
