Haven't heard of anything. It's too big, if anything.

Having been searching round other sites I came across somebody saying that BA were opening a route to faro next summer now having googled this the only other place it came up was on Wikipedia ! I know Wikipedia is not the most reliable site and therefore wanted to know if anyone on here had about this or any other "rumoured" routes to east midlands ?

That is what I was thinking ! I do think that east midlands would benefit hugely from a scheduled airline route though be it BA, AF, KLM or even lufthansa ! I know flybe is starting a code share agreement with AF on some routes but it's not the same as a fully scheduled route.

I think East Midlands as a regional airport already does this quite well as it has regular links to Brussels and Frankfurt BMI Regional and Amsterdam and Paris with FlyBe with a codeshare. It would be nice to see KLM Cityhopper if anything as even the smallest airports see them ie Manston so I dare say would work for them. Sadly don't think it will happen though.

BMI Regional need to get some codeshares up and running and that would in turn help out EMA !

BMI Regional

Cornishsimon

Agreed, and I'll go a little further.

Unless they do gain mebership of one of the main alliances, Star being the best to join, given their route network, I can regretable see the airline playing out the same way as Duo did when the tried to go it alone after BA dumped them at BHX.

Point to point traffic of destinations such as Frankfurt and Brussels isn't going to pay the bills long term.

Hope I am wrong.

In what way is FlyBe not a fully scheduled route? You can check bags through to final destination via the CDG and AMS hubs, which seems to me to be the thing that separates Lo-Co from full service carriers.

If you mean that the aircraft operating the services aren't from big legacy carriers then I can't see what difference that makes - other than a few foreign reggies to spot.

I'm not suggesting this will happen but if flybe managed to gain a codeshare with KLM in which a city hopper aircraft would take over the Amsterdam route and free several daily movements up for flybe to use on other routes would it not benefit both airlines ? The same goes with bmi regional and Lufthansa on routes to Germany ?

I expect Flybe or BMI Regional fly these routes because they make money from them! Why on earth give them them up to somebody else and try to find other routes that may not be profitable? I do hope legacy carrier snobbery is not part of the suggestion.

It was a GB route using a BA branded aircraft.

GB was bought by EZY and the charter was bashed on the head I think.

Yeah I remember them taking over GB airways and using some of the A321's for EZY for a while, I know this may sound a stupid idea but what are the chances for BA having a domestic route to Heathrow or gatwick, I suppose it's abit too close to travel by road or rail but I think that's the only possibility of seeing BA having any routes from ema?

None. The LBA slot filler example will put paid to that

I think East Midlands is easily accessible to London area for BA to even think about any routes from EMA

Read elsewhere that Thomson's inaugural 787 flight from EMA will be on the 1st May, with route proving and crew training flights taking place prior to that...

TCX will not use BA for its routes to Faro for Summer 2013, instead will sell seats on the Monarch flights... so... no BA Cityflyer.

On another note, TCX, like TOM, will have an additional DLM flight during the Summer ops by Freebird.

Avro group have a extra dlm flight july to oct 2013 wed each week with onour air if that is the correct spelling, plus a extra pmi for the tom group on a wed now upto 8 flights per week to pmi 7 with tom 1 shared with jet2.

the extra pmi for tom is made by taking the mah flight from LBA and a w operation.

regards
