We start the new thread with a polite good morning and what do we get? , called idiots and a side swipe at the MODs!!!

I think the Mods called it right in closing the last thread, when you get someone using bmi groups published accounts, which are i might global for the group not the individual units and then dividing the numbers by the number of aircraft in what are three very different business models and then passing the resultant numbers off as representing bmibaby trading figures!! FFS

Anyway enough of the past lets move on.

New Tail colours

Which aircraft are still to get the new design baby, which they seem to put a different design on each aircraft?

As if I'm going to tell the likes of you the exact figures

They are on a need to know basis and you don't need to know

Montezuma

Well that's very logical?

So you either know the figures but post something else, whats the point in that? why post anything at all?

Any way whatever the figures are I'm sure any prospective buyer will have full access to the management accounts, for all its fault bmi is not a tin pot business without books.

You got " in the general direction " which is good enough: you want the exact numbers - put in bid.

Unless Stobart are suddenly going to a) acquire more airports or b) swamp Carlisle with enough capacity to take every man, woman and child in the area to Spain at least four times a year, then I can see easyJet being hugely uncomfortable with this move. You make a show of commitment to Stobart at Southend and then they bring their "own" airline in alongside you? Surely not.

Given that Easyjet has such a tiny presence in the Midlands, and they wouldn't bother pitting bmibaby against Easyjet at Southend because they would be subsidising both airlines, I suspect any such move would not be founded on the idea of both airlines competing in any way. They may want bmibaby for Carlisle - I doubt that Easyjet has any interest in that airport unless there are significant subsidies (ie. more than Southend - at least SEN has decent catchment and a direct trainline to Liverpool Street), which would probably make such an operation unviable for Stobart anyway.

Why would Stobart have to operate a passenger service? They are a haulage compamy after all.

How much difference can it make when you operate your own airline out of your own airport?

Oh come on. I am sure the quote from an 'insider' came from a post on here. Just because some journo in Basildon writes an article about said post, it doesn't make it any more likely.

I tend to agree with airferries on this one.

For Stobart to show any interest there would surely have to be a very large cash 'sweetener' from LH as part of the deal. Even then it would still be a very high risk acquisition going forward.

Replace Stobart with Jet2 and you're not far off the mark....

So now it's Jet2.com again? Source?

I thought they declared themselves out a while ago...

Stobarts would make a lot of sense. I'm hoping that it is them as I think it'd give baby the best chance of turning into the airline it could be.

This appears to be dragging on....could it be that any company, having had a look in depth at the opportunities available via Baby ,has decided that they would need SUCH a sweetener that it isn't worth their while?
