Maybe has to do with the Air Lithuanica contract continuing and the need to release an aircraft for that.

Man Abz.

Maybe it's something to do with the price of oil? It's predicted to remain low for most if this year!

lplsprog - have a Google on 'Brent forward curve'. Jobs in Aberdeen depend on the price of a barrel of crude; petrol prices have a lot of additional factors which do not correlate well against the health of Aberdeen's job market.

More shifts of frames around the network?
Based on current schedule the following number of aircraft will be based at the following airports


ABZ - 2 aircraft (1 x ER3 & 1 x ER4)
BRS - 5 aircraft (1 x ER3 & 4 x ER4) - 1 x ER4 ops for SN
EMA - 1 aircraft (ER3)
KID - 1 aircraft (ER4)
KSD - 1 aircraft (ER4)
MUC - 2 aircraft (2 x ER4)
NCL - 1 aircraft (ER4)

Leaving 1 x ER3 and 4 x ER4 aircraft spare. Does anyone know where BM base standby aircraft?.

You've also got the Airbus aircraft, CEG/TLS.

Another is out in BRE, and the one on contract in VNO.

The spares are based in ABZ and BRS

You have to assume that BM will be looking at adding a frame(s) to the fleet in the not too distant future.

Well there are plenty ER3's and ER4's parked up around the world looking for new homes. Maybe BM might introduce the 44 seat ERJ140 as a new variant.

There were a load of Dniproavia ones parked at Warsaw last time I was there. With the fall in fuel prices, the small regional jets may be in with a fighting chance on thin routes again.

BRS-DUS

Good to see BM launching another German route from BRS, this time to DUS.

Today sees the launch of BM's new services from BRS to CDG and DUS. Anyone know what the loads are like on the flights today and does anyone know how well the flights are selling?

Just to cheer you up...my wife, her mother and I are all booked to DUS in June. FLYBE dumped the service from Southampton which we used......we would rather pay a little more and drive to Bristol rather than endure the heaving masses at Gatwick....besides...the Embraer is like a little Exec jet....makes us feel a bit special!!!....and baggage....novelty these days!!
Good luck.

I was on MUC-BRS on 08MAY (the afternoon flight - BM1846) and it was quite well loaded with about 30PAX. Hopefully this is broadly representative of loads. (I was booked on an LH H fare, which is quite a high fare class, so good revenue).

I'm on some more BM flights in the coming months, so I'll keep an eye on the loads.

I think G-RJXF was the last aircraft to operate flights for them. It has been operating BM services out of BRS since last week
