Looks like British Airways are codeshareing with bmi british midland on the Leeds/Bradford - Heathrow route and are offering world wide connetions via LHR.

The LBA to LHR point to point services are not bookable on the BA website but long haul connections are bookable. It also states that flights between LBA and LHR are operated by bmi uk domestic on an Embraer 145.

Flight details.
LBA-LHR
BD411 = BA7611
BD413 = BA7613
BD417 = BA7617
BD419 = BA7619

LHR-LBA
BD412 = BA7612
BD414 = BA7614
BD418 = BA7618
BD420 = BA7620

I don't think it is just restricted to long haul. As an example I just tried it with FCO and it worked.
Excellent, a much missed facility, and nice to see it back.

I would love to see BA take over the route once again. The BMI service has really been allowed to fall into decline over the years from a point where we had a 5 times a day service with DC9-32's and then 737-300's with the possibility of 8 X returns daily, to what passes for a service now.

I'm sure with the enhanced worldwide connections BA could make a better job of it.

FLYBAR

The flight departed Islamabad almost 4 hours late.

Unluckily it looks as though the runway repairs at Leeds have put pay to an arrival there, hence coaches galore at the LBA.

aswell as the aircraft departing late from ISB the customs section were due to leave the aiport by 2330 which would be after the aircraft had arrived at LBA, the runway was planned to keep open but due to the customs situation it went to manchester!

That is not what I was lead to understand. Tonight is perfect weather for concrete laying, high humidity, moderate winds, light rain. I dare say there will be contractual obligations with the contactors over such events.

Is this a first from the UK?.Why would I want to fly there?

LFAQ

Albert is in the Somme region in the NE of France.
World War 1 battlefields etc.

Airbus also have a plant there and the Beluga operates regularly into the airfield.

My guess is that Jet2 are doing this route in conjunction with airfield and local tourist board.

Thomas Cook Holidays have just put Egypt - Sharm el Sheikh on sale for next winter. Flights will operate every Tuesdays from November 3rd, 2009 till April 27th, 2010

Departs LBA @ 08:40 and Arrives SHH @ 16:40
Departs SHH @ 17:55 and Arrives LBA @ 22:15

It's going to be operated by the Thomas Cook based Aircraft, Can there Airbus 320's make it or are we in for a upgrade next winter?

If not I guess they could always borrow a Jet2 Boeing 757 for the day

It'll probably be a Thomas Cook 757 that positions across from Manchester or Newcastle at a guess
