Pity it doesn't include Aberdeen though. :(
BA does London City to Aberdeen.
Yes but some competition means a better price for the consumer!
There's plenty of competition already.
Aside from BA's other route from Aberdeen to Heathrow, you also have Virgin Atlantic Airways flying Aberdeen to London Heathrow and Easyjet flying Aberdeen to both Luton and Gatwick.
And you can also go from Aberdeen to London by train, coach or in your own car.Edited: 2:39 am, April 24, 2014
You can get from London to Hong Kong by train, but I would not regard this as competition!
Going from one carrier operating a route to more than one is bound to have an effect on the price.
That is not guaranteed.
True. But it is likely.
I would not deem flights from LHR to be in direct competition with flights from LCY. They are in competition for a certain segment of the travelling public (those living or visiting somewhere that is equidistant between the two), but people generally look for flights from the airport that is closest to them, and the two airports have quite diverse catchment areas. Living where I do I only use LHR as a last resort (i.e., when I can't get a suitable flight from NWI, LCY, STN or SND), so I would not deem LHR-ABZ flights to be in any way in competition to flights from LCY to ABZ (for me!)Edited: 3:36 am, April 24, 2014

We aren't discussing London to Hong Kong, we are discussing Aberdeen to London (or the other way round).
And we are going off-topic now as Aberdeen wasn't even mentioned in the original post.Edited: 5:05 am, April 24, 2014
The LCY-DUB cost is well below their competitors however it looks like Flybe costed it in response to Stobart Air (a Flybe service provider on some routes) SEN-DUB prices
