Well I don't work in ops but still safety comes first as always. With regards to Baby, WW have cancelled a few flights. Might even pick up a few of FR pax.

While were on the subject of FR/WW has anyone looked into the pax loads on EMA-Belfast?

When a FR flight is cancelled the PAX have to mess around trying to get their money back. FR will make on those who cannot be bothered to go though the hoops. Those who rebook get counted again as new seats booked. This is how FR can claim to carry 17% more pax in April 2010 when the carried less. They are evil.

Ema-bfs / Bhd

Hi,

EMA - Belfast is an interesting battle: To be honest, it doesn't look like much of a contest, but despite this, Baby seem to be refusing to give up.

According to the CAA:

Ryanair's market share on EMA - Belfast has grown from 51% in 2008, to 63% last year and then to a very dominant 74% for the first 3 months of this year.

In 2008, Ryanair carried an average of 101 passengers per flight on EMA-BHD, increasing to 106 last year and falling back to 91 in the first 3 months of this year (down by about 6 per flight compared to the same period last year).

Baby carried an average of 90 passengers per flight in 2007 before Ryanair entered the market. This fell to 77 passengers per flight in 2008, but increased to 78 per flight in 2009 (following a 23% reduction in capacity). In the first 3 months of this year, an average of 57 passengers flew on each bmiBaby flight on EMA-BFS, which gives an average flown LF of 39.5%.

Well how come other carriers are flying there still then, surely if it was so dangerous all flights would be stopped, something fishy i think, probably Fr cant afford to operate the flights !!!!!

See the Ryanair thread for details of closed airports. In addition there is disruption in some areas for overflying.

Ryanair

Dropped pax at BHX this morning for the Ryanair Malage, cancelled, they re booked on the Baby flight leaving 3 hours later which seemed to have no problem. My guess is Baby extended routing, customer service, less profit, satisfied customers as opposed Ryanair the bottom line of the balance sheet stuff the passenger its going to cost us money..

In respect of refunds/re booking looks simple just click the link on thier site and wait 30 days.

All bmibaby flight from EMA SUSPENDED

I see the EMA website is showing all baby flights canx for the rest of today, most of the other operators appear to be operating normally, but other info says EMA closed from 13.00 UTFN

BHX seems normaly, i guess there has to be a line somewhere?

One has to ask who in their right mind would book an overseas holiday any time soon.

If e-clear hadn't finished off Globespan the ash would have, begs the question who is at risk from this ongoing situation, Airline margins are way too thin to take this on the chin week after week.

UPDATE 11.09

More canx from EMA with many mid PM Ryanair flights now canx, i guess the others are playing catch up

11.28 EMA WEB SITE DOWN

canx Flight from bmibaby website

The title was FR. . . Yes its Fr bad times, im kind of shocked to be honest, I was expecting Fr to pick up some of the slack from easyJet.

Sorry for being thick didn't click the FR bit!!

It does seem rather low, but they may have got a better deal elsewhere to winter park aircraft? looks like further reductions in pax numbers for EMA next winter?

Also looks like the winds are going to the NW from Sunday= ash,,grrrrrrrrr

both are bad news for the Brookfield guys.....

Jet2

Can anybody offer any logical explanation for ALC, PMI and FAO?

Jet2 have been fairly smart offering destinations with little direct
competition but why take on Ryanair and BMI Baby's daily services
( in some instances)?

Even if they are sold through Jet2 holidays it seems a strange decision.
