My point was not that gays would choose a pink plane over any other, rather if the company markets itself well within the gay community and pink is symbolic of a company catering for this community, I reckon this will appeal. Remember, the gays like shiny things (joke!)

Honestly! When did we start taking ourselves so seriously. Pink airline, sounds like a right ol' laugh to me!

With all the WAGs living in Cheshire, this could be a bright idea!

Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Wigan (only just!), Everton, Bolton etc pay their players very well, which obviously means that their wives will have money to burn - pink money!

Certainly hope it works, but when up against two of the biggest players in FR and EZY, they may scuffer a shortfall. GSM won't suffer much either, maybe in Business, but not much.

It maybe MAN that suffers the most from this new airline. BA, DL and CO all offer business class seats on the NYC routes, but can they match the service and price of the new airline?!

We will have to wait and see - orange worked, why can't pink?

Anyone with a looooong memory may remember Court Line in the 70s?

IT operator, didn't it paint its planes in pretty colours...one of which was pink (can't recall if it was a 1-11 or TriStar, sure I saw latter in a pink scheme somewhere).

If some entrepreuner thinks he/she can capture a slice of the market with such an initiative, then why not??

There's absolutely no way you can operate a successful airline by appealing to just one tiny section of the market (i.e. wealthy women). It's almost like easyjet saying that customers with surnames N - Z are not permitted to book. Flypink is a nice idea, but it's rather naive. I'm taking this with a large pinch of salt.

Ryanair are cutting 4 flights per week to both Aberdeen and Inverness (both are currently served daily) from Liverpool from 13th June. The spare capacity will then used to increase the Limoges service to daily (from 4*per week) and an extra service per week to both Palma (to 4*per week) and Reus (to 8*per week).

I really, really hope they don't cut the Inverness flight totally. It's been a God send for me!

Likewise for me for ABZ but going from daily to 3 a week is now useless! There are a lot of regular pax on the ABZ route with most of them working offshore and use this route to commute home. Looks like I will be using bmi from Manch then! At least I can't say have not supported it since I have been a regular on it every week since Feb!

Ho hum......

True but if you are setting off from the south of Manchester such as I would be doing then it is simply not worth the struggle!

Champions League etc

Lots of doom and gloom predicted over LPL ability to handle the expected traffic for the exodus to Athens.

In the event LPL worked very well although I understand that Athens was chaotic for the return flights.

Shame about the match result.

VLM to stop London route

Any one else want to try ?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...de/6693361.stm

Belgian airline VLM is suspending its route between John Lennon Airport and London City from 1 July.

The company said falling passenger numbers meant the service, which was recently scaled back to two flights a day, was "no longer sustainable".

Ryanairs next step at Liverpool

Points made by MOL in an interview re FR expanding (and a possible transatlantic offshoot) from Liverpool.

He is saying that the airline will fly 'some more new routes' by the end of the year from Liverpool. This being the case then it should not be too long before they reveal them.

He went onto say that the Liverpool base will double its size within two to three years to five million passengers per annum!

He also said that he will include Liverpool in plans to fly transatlantic routes to New York, Boston, Florida, Dallas, Denver and San Francisco. He went onto say that FR would not be the airline to operate the network although he would be interested in setting up that project.

Sad that VLM are stopping... it was the only 'frills' airline that LPL was lucky to have operating! Now everything in and out of LPL is low cost!

Going back to the pink planes, what ever happened to these? The first flight was supposed to be June 4th (I think) and the website due to go live early June. Still no website up there and no sickly coloured planes (well, apart from the Wizz Air ones)
