Emirates

Beatts

May and June are low season and as BHX gets regular 3 class 77W's and A388's in high season it must be a possibility that come May and June EK41/2 will see some reductions if not completely suspended in June, which would be totally reasonable based on last years figures.

What would be amazing if was for Manchester for anything other than to replace an A388 on their morning service. Manchester Dubai May 2016 66328 pax 72% load factor and June 61409 69% load factor, better than most but certainly not anywhere near the need for extra flight, nobody is that stupid or............. July/August might be a different story but BHX is also fine in those months.

MAN's next service and 4th daily will be a 77W, arriving MAN mid afternoon. I've seen flight numbers and times along with possible start date, but, as we clearly know, nothing confirmed. Lots of cargo currently leaving MAN on trucks to other UK destinations due to the lack of 77W these days. Cargo does not mind where it flies from, but removing road shipping must be economically favorable for EK.

Without doubt Emirates 4th service at Manchester is only a question of when and not if. The suggestion that it is at the expense of BHX;s morning service is ludicrous as the timings are completely different.

I am not saying EK41/2 is safe as I certainly have no access to yields and loads at times have been poor although they appear to be improving a bit.

As I said I would not be surprised if there is at least a temporary suspension but as to adding extra capacity at Manchester in low season seems far-fetched but stranger things have happened.

Thats what I was trying to get across Pete, the timings do not match. You dont often see EK reduce services, I'd be surprised if BHX did not end up with another service at some point rather than any reduction.

Whilst looking on Blue City Aviation's website under the latest news section, it mentions there are discounted fees being offered by BHX for large all-cargo aircraft (above 30T MTOW). There's no date on the report so I'm not sure if its new news or not. Thisisnot an easy market with EMA just up the road (and DSA also seem to be attarcting quite a lot of pure cargo ad-hoc traffic).

Re the BA Sun Destination Flights

I'm sure the flights are welcome and the one way promotional prices are very attractive, but the BHX outbound timings are very late in the day. (Returns are nicely timed).

The BRS schedule gives the traveller the chance for an evening out (with luck) on arrival.

CAT III

[I forgot: Fly BE Tried late evening departures to holiday destinations inc Reykjavik - did the services last more than one season ?]

BA/Flybe

Hi CATIII-NDB

Flybe KEF and FLR both lasted for two seasons.

Just found the press release which stated KEF started as a twilight flight in summer and then went to daytime in winter.

FLR was beset by problems, I was delayed over an hour on the 175 due lack of tow-bar and nothing to do with the Captain constantly on the phone to ops, one third of the pax were held at the gate and then some bags didn't travel.

It ended up with the 195 on the route in place of the hairdryers.

BA

Also worth noting not the first time City Flyer have operated from BHX to Palma but the last time was a short season a few years back although not schedule.

Ryanair


I can't believe BHX was over-looked for Cologne - they could have joined the Hall of Shame of failed attempts. Must be close on double figures

At four daily, would MAN be their biggest European destination outside LHR, even beating Gatters?

How many passengers want to arrive in Palma or Malaga at 02:30 ? Not exactly an easy time of night to get taxis, arrange car hire etc.

Hey wowzz, we are talking Palma, not darkest Lincs! At weekends it's almost as busy during the night as it is during the day.
