Looking at the sun routes for baby this winter, and, even though there are only a few destinations avaliable already, I have to say, there isnt a lot of flights atall, by the looks of it, there would only be 4 aircraft based at EMA...

Based in January-

MALAGA = Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday
ALICANTE = Tuesday, Saturday, Sunday
PALMA = Tuesday, Saturday
GENEVA = Monday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Prague would most likely be 4x a week
Jersey between 3x and 4x a week
Warsaw might be 3x a week

Glad I booked with ZB when their W08 flights came out in April, for AGP-MAN in December and didn't hold back, as WW are only offering 3/4 x weekly Tuesday, Friday/Saturday (varies) and Sunday.

Very poor.

Where's the so called expansion at MAN?

after following the link i am suprised to see that EMA and CWL have no info on them but EDI does.

Very well done for BmiBaby to this but i would to see how this continues with the airframes getting older and older.

In all fairness they do try their best to re-shuffle flights during tech aircraft to try and get the majority on a minimum delay and also bring a/c in from other bases to cover AOG a/c.

Hope this continues, excellent news for the small LO-CO

EMA and CWL are not monitored under CAA stats, which is where flightontime get their info from.

Considering bmibaby's punctuality performance over prior years, there has been a big improvement. Whatever they have done to their schedules/turnarounds its worked and hopefully this level of performance will continue.

Baby have never served Aberdeen from Manchester. That's a regional route and I can't see the oil companies letting that be dropped.

What a shame. Looks like manchester is going to be without a madrid connection once again.
MAN needs the likes of EZY, CLK or even RYR to get this route going. Im sure theyd make a bomb!
Whatever happened to TOM and LIS, I thought they were doing well but the route seems to have dissapeared without any news as to why?

I can understand why these routes have been dropped for the winter because they are more summer routes than winter routes, but I cant understand why Krakow from BHX has been dropped, from what ive heard its been doing average...

"Doing average..." is probably the reason it has been dropped.

I surpose, but you could also argue the fact it was 3/4x weekly, it could have been dropped to 2x a week, and flights would have been more full.

I thought baby had their sights set on expanding their operations at MAN, not dropping routes. Has this got anything to do with aircraft shortages? I know that currently they only have 2 baby machines based at MAN, 2 bmi A320s are covering the rest of the routes this week. There has been a mixture of A319s/320s & 321s covering their operation since the start of the Summer season.
