Would the people who have paid to be on the 'last flight' not a be a bit peeved if the aircraft went back into service as normal. Would Biman then market another set of 'final flights'.

Perhaps they need the DC-10 back to start DAK-BHX-JFK!

Biman DC-10

ATT notts, apologies for the bad spelling and grammar
it was a long day and was using the iphone to write it.

I also heard many things about its future to which today
I learned it is going back home but it's been sold to a private
Buyer, for scrap, operational flights that I don't know.

I would hope the right permissions are in place
The civil aircraft (unknown) which is taking the photos is to arrive at
Birmingham on Monday and be parked next to the DC-10
Dependant on operational changes.

They chose to play corny 70's style porn music over the approach and landing instead of letting viewers hear the sound of those 3 mighty GE's...

"They chose to play corny 70's style porn music over the approach and landing"

Rather appropriate for an aircraft fondly remembered as "the three holer"...

Monarch & Ryanair

Monarch

With flybe starting Bordeaux in mid May it seems Monarch are not going to risk a second season and based on the 2013 figures who can blame them. The only flights bookable are Saturday 24 May and 31 May 2014.

The question is where will the aircraft go in place of BOD? The days and timings lend it self to re-instate the Tuesday and Thursday Nice which were originally cut for 2014 after some indifferent figures in 2013. The Saturday Bordeaux rotation was planned for morning and could easily do Spain if it started out at 06.30 - Mahon is crying out for a weekend departure as there is just a Thomson flight at present.

Ryanair - Again like pulling teeth with still several gaps in the schedule and odd frequencies on the Dublin. Milan MXP remains in the drop-down despite BGY not bookable for summer. Trieste is another long-established route cut to peak summer months. The third Dublin in July and August has reappeared on certain days but very messy.

I agree, it ruined it for me.

Phrases like 'BIRMINGHAM...Britain's second-biggest ' could annoy those of a northern persuasion.

This is a true statement so why would it annoy anyone from up North ??

This has been debated many times on this site, I suggest we DONT start another debate just except Birmingham is indeed the UK's 2nd city !

Just ashame people are so insecure that this has to be brought up, rather unprovoked may I add, at all really.

Summer 2014

More adjustments with the 4th Amsterdam on Tuesdays & Thursdays removed from the schedule before it even operated.

However a 7th E175 and 8th jet in total added to the summer schedule with Glasgow first outbound and Aberdeen last inbound changed from the Q400. Not sure where it goes in between but could operate Toulouse or two flights such as INV/GLA

SAS

Stockholm finally returns tomorrow after its winter break.

Cello

Signed a short-term deal with BA CityFlyer for use of the RJ85 for a couple of months until the end of May.

Summer 14

Estonian are now operating the former Flybe IT's on Saturdays for Inghams:

ELL8721/8722 E170 07:00/11:35 SZG
ELL8723/8724 E170 12:15/16:55 INN

It looks like virtually all the usual summer Flybe weekend IT's have now gone, but there may be just one weekend flight remaining to Salzburg on Saturday afternoons for TUI Travel

Due to Dubai International Airport’s Runway enhancement project, EK is shifting its operations between 01MAY14 to 20JUL14.
Courtesy of airline route. This has been discussed before.

Looks like routes are being added as we speak -

The Tuesday morning A320 BOD rotation has been replaced with a MON Charter - BHX - JSI - KVA - BHX operating every tuesday from the 27th May - 7th October departing at 10.55am.

There also seam to be quite a few changes going on with the timetable, looks like all Tuesday HRG's have been dropped with HRG only operating on Fridays. Sundays in the summer timeable have been shuffled around twice now with GIB moving to the afternoons to replace PFO and a PVK MON charter replacing the GIB in the am slot. Thurs/Sat am only 8 a/c needed and Tues/Wed pm's only 8 a/c needed the rest of the time its 9 needed still showing as 7 321's and 2 320's.

Yes, had an e-mail from Flybe to say that our 5pm flight to Hannover in April had been changed to 10:55

Monarch

Alex321

Cheers for the update and most appear in Cosmos other than Preveza, which i believe is about the third time it has been on sale for summer 2014 but still shows flybe.

However what you say makes sense with Sunday Paphos cut and GIB re-timed, the aircraft will go to PVK.

Ryanair

Milan MXP remains in the drop-down yet it must be certain that Bergamo ends this month as it is not on sale and still some gaps in the schedule.
