when cork airport loses a destination, it is regularly blamed on;

-Lack of marketing
-The DAA
-Poor promotion
-Stupid people driving to Dublin
-Simon Coveney
-Some other politician
-The airline
-Parking costs

It is never blamed on

-Fundamental viability issues [insufficient numbers travelling]
Cork is well served as a feeder airport to large European hubs, like Heathrow, Schipol, and Paris CDG.

These are primary hubs easily accessible from Cork.

Much easier to fly via a primary Hub than drive or get the bus to a secondary airport in Dublin.
