Hi INKJET,

Sorry - I should have been a little clearer - I was mainly thinking about TourOp programmes.

I am looking for France in early Feb and can only find weekly TOM flights EMA CMF which actually only serves a limited number of French ski resports.

If you want a TourOp holiday via GVA, TRN etc then you have to head to LON, BHX or MAN - and that kinda hurts my EMA supporting ego

The problem with self aranged ski holidays combining LoCo/Accom is the transfer from airport to resort - with many resorts being a good few hours from the airport the transfer costs are massive!

I think this year will be a self-drive (again)

A couple of E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft have been reported in the area. Be careful with your use of the term "loops" - it has a specific meaning in an aeronautical sense. A Sentry performing a loop would cause considerable consternation to those in the cabin!

Ryan Air seem to have been doing a fair bit of "circuits & bumps" in recent weeks.

Someone (DLH/IAG) will try to sell it, or it will close.

As an outsider looking in I wonder if its possible EZY could return to EMA and pick up the routes should bmi baby close down?

Excuse the simple question but how is EMA performing as an airport at the moment in terms of passenger numbers, and what do the short and medium prospects for its future look likely to be?

Check the bmibaby thread... Basically no-one knows although there are a thousand and one guesses!

bmibaby are doing EMA - Reus twice a week in the summer for Thomas Cook Holidays also. A growing partnership which could work well for both companies.
