East Midlands 6

Hi all
the load on last nights IH003 EMA-ISB/IHJ was an improvement on Tuesdays but still not fantastic. There were 69 pax split 66 to ISB and 3 to SHJ.Iam on duty today when IH006 returns so will post tomorrow with inbound pax figures.Last nights flight from islamabad arrived at 21-15 and had 42 pax inbound.

HAJJ Flights

I see the CAA have just published (Official Record 2) a list of flights from BHX for the Hajj, to be flown by Nouvelair Tunisia on a 5th Freedom Basis and looking for objections.

Wonder if UKIA will object, or do they have their own program?

Mmmmm..........lots gone quiet on this outfit. Does this mean that they are a resounding success now - or it's so dire that it's embarassing?
How ARE the pax loads doing?

Before anyone prematurely writes off a start up enterprise of any type, especially one that might initially seek to serve a limited market of any kind please remember that the industry that was to become the global Airline business really started with a government supported Air Mail service using surplus warplanes and Pilots In business things can improve, even after a modest start. I wish UKIA well

UKIA

Hi all
Ironically,bearing in mind all the political problems in Pakistan ,last fridays/saturdays UKIA flight had its best pax figures since the first flight.On Friday outbound pax were just over 100(106 i believe) and on saturday evening the flight had 54 pax on its return.

54 on a 767 they must be hurting !!
For a startup in winter that is a damn good number, never mind the 100 odd in the other direction!

33 inbound EMA tonight, although there were around 175 that got off at Sharjah from Islamabad. Perhaps the latter sector is the one to take notice of. Yield unknown at present, but not a bad load for such a new starter.

Passenger Figures

Do we really need to worry about pax numbers on a flight by flight basis?
Why not wait until the CAA monthly stats are published, and work out an average load factor?

Passenger Figures

It's almost too late to worry about Pax figures. They had G-CECU repossessed early hours of this morning.

Not sure where the repossession rumour has come from. G-CECU is just badly tech so out of action for a few days.

G-CECU apparently has been recovered by the lessor and is subject now to a lien.

Is this all true as there seems to be no official release or announcement anywhere.

Hope it is not - never good to see a new airline fail!

Interesting one this.
EMA departures still (at 13.30) showing an 18.15 departure to Sharjah, perhaps over 30hrs after the apparent repo. Although, I guess, possibly a case of them attempting to seek further finance to pay the debt if thats the case.
Any info on your sources Slim/Spook?
Not heard even a whisper elsewhere...

....I imagine, i) The've paid up or, ii) they've come to some agreement with whomever applied for the repo.
If it's either then it's good news for everyone....Don't like seeing Airlines going down the pan!
