bmi regional currently have 3 base Embrear aircraft at LBA.

2 Embrear 135's for the Glasgow, Brussels and Copenhagen routes while 1 Embrear 145 is based for the Edinburgh route.

A 2nd Embrear 145 will be based at LBA as of the winter season due to the Heathrow route been downgraded from an Airbus A319/320 operation.

The average load for PIA on the Leeds/Bradford - Islamabad service in August was 157 passengers by the way (2829 punters on 18 flights)

Not bad. But I guess they could be better....

Leeds Twin.

Hi SASfox, as far as I can remember Leeds is twinned with the city of Dortmund.

PIA

Gosh LBIA harsh task master, if 157 is correct then a load factor of
82% (usually about 190-192 config) in one of the first few months of operation sounds pretty good.

Okay I have no idea of yields and if there were some cheap lead-in
fares but from memory bhx was about the same load factor once the
310's operated direct after the 747 via CPH.

I can't remember the bhx frequency for the original 310 schedule but
if that kind of load factor continues you would expect that three or
even four a week could be possible eventually.

I would never have thought bhx would be getting 75%+ load factors
on the 777 (four a week) but it has happened.

The PIA A310s are configured in Y184, so at an average of 157 per flight that makes it slightly better at 85.3% load factor, which I'm sure they won't complain at. Figures for September have dipped quite markedly, and do from everywhere and is to be expected, as it is the religious festival of Ramadan and lasts one lunar month.

It's the Drugdealers setting of fireworks to tell their customers the supply is ready to collect.

They have been doing it for years in big cities.

It's true.

PIA Taking off from 32

Yes i have seen the PIA flight take off from runway 32, infact i have it on video, and that video is on you-tube, it is a pity it was dark when she took off, but you know it is the PIA a310-300

Take a look follow this link: YouTube - PIA AT LBA (Leeds Bradford Airport 12/07/08)


As you can see from this clip....this aircraft is well off the ground along way from the end of the runway...

Seems the runway is due to get it's long overdue resurfacing this winter, nice one Bridgepoint! Anyone have any info on start date closure timings etc? Also given the runway is concrete will it be overlaid with tarmac?

As I understand it , the closure is from about 11 ish to 5 ish and it maybe a full closure, not the usual closed except for scheduled flights, for the duration of winter. 14 lights are moving and resurfacing work, should be interesting !

From what I have been told the runway will be closed after the last departure (FR) and be handed back to ATC, cleared and swept for the first departure in the morning (KL) at 0605. Although their seems to be some confusion as to wether it is a complete re-surfacing job or just patch repairs.

Repairs rather than full resurface I understand.
However other projects planned including a CAT II ILS on 14
