Looks like the St Nazaire - Gijon ferry is stopping in September as well. What a shame!

Not the first to try and undercut BF on this route, perhaps BF charge what is needed to run a proper reliable(ish) service!!

That would be a shame for us as we have a static van 15 mins away from St. Nazaire and we have used this route for the last 3 years.

I am still hoping that LD lines have not put their winter schedule for this route on the website yet, we shall see.

BF started their own economy service in response to LD lines. Cynical me think BF will discontinue theirs now!

Wouldn't surprise me if BF have been running their service at a loss to kill off the opposition.

Hi Flyingscotsman2 :)

Did they give you any dates please? We are booked with them leaving 12th September, returning 2 weeks later. We booked through the Caravan Club, I've had a poke around on the web and there's nothing being said at the moment.

DB, that isn't cynicism, that's an insightful grasp of business as conducted by large companies!

Just had a phone call from the Caravan Club, LD Lines are throwing in the towel on the 7th September so that's involves us.

They (LD Lines) have booked us on a Brittany sailing for the previous day, which sadly won't work so we are now hopefully going on the Economie. Confirmed next week we hope. Not really bothered, as long as I don't have to swim or row the ferry. If it doesn't work out then we'll go somewhere else.
