Where are you getting the idea that BA will have 200 pax on a A319?

Maximum passenger capacity of a BA A319 is 144 pax, as far as I am aware they are not being densified compared to the A320/321's.

Perhaps from the posted news article ?

I must admit 200 on a 319 does sound like a tight squeeze even if they were densifying them! Sounds more 321 material or 320 at a push.

Speaking of LHR, how are Flybe getting on with their service?

Well the article is clearly wrong as no way do BA seat 200 passengers on a A319.

If you want to believe the DAILY RECORD do so but if you want the facts go to thebasource.com!

Looks like Flybe will putting the Eastern Embraer 170 (which they're presumably tied into) on the LCY run, BHD Days 1-5 and a MAN run on Day 7.

I'm one of the most sarcastic and condescending people your ever meet so I hope that the sarcasm by-pass comment is not aimed at me!

Looks like Flybe are also putting the Eastern Saab 2000 on quite a few weekday SOU-LBA-ABZ rotations next summer.

I did wonder whether Flybe might put the Eastern 170 on the LHR run, but good to see for now they have retained both London routes - I had wondered when LHR started whether it would spell the end of LCY, but seems not so far.

I assume the S2000 is spare now that the ATR72-600 operates some SCS rotations.

Harry, Hurricane are an exploration company and subcontract virtually all their work including drilling. Some of it goes to to more local subcontractors. If the amount of oil that can be recovered from its portfolio is even 10% of the oil initially in place it will support thousands of UK jobs for many decades but it won't be Hurricane that is the producer. Instead, they will farm the fields to companies that have the capital and experience to carry out full field development.

You raise an interesting point though about the extent to which oil and gas infrastructure is subcontracted from the UK to various overseas countries. Why is it that Norway still has a thriving shipbuilding and fabrication industry and the UK imports so much? Perhaps it is because Norway has a range of government policies that encourage such activities and the UK doesn't? Perhaps it's also because Norway still has substantial state ownesrship of its oil and gas industry and the UK privatised?

Indeed - Norwegians pay much higher taxes and their Govt supports all sorts of things (including growing apples!)

The British Govt gave up on shipbuilding (and supporting the motor industry) as it was uncompetitive, a $$$ sink and run by idiotic managers and neanderthal unions

TUI UK S18

From Airlineroute & also appears on the TUI thread:

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38...routes-in-s18/

Is this story new or out of date as I thought Bourgas had been listed then dropped in favour of another Palma. Is Reus new or was it previously announced?

Routes Online playing catch up, at least in ABZ’s case

REU was announced a good while ago - Sunday AM rotation before the TFS in the PM.

BOJ was dropped quickly as we know, replaced with PMI and now the PMI is gone! DLM has been retimed to early doors departure out of ABZ with return arriving back in ABZ 0330 Friday morning. Not sure where the W will be to in between.

Also means no extra frequencies, just the capacity bump B73G —> B738

Loganair Teesside

Durham Tees Valley Airport to Norwich flights to be scrapped while Aberdeen will be changed - Gazette Live

Seems LOG happy with the initial take up of the MME route, although they are to drop the MME-NWI service.

'Service enhancements' on the ABZ-MME run (aka re-timings!).

Flybe & Eastern Airways

Maybe they can replace the dash8 from the ABZ - LHR - ABZ with the embraer 170 as well in the future.

embraer is more comfortable than the dash8

KLM Amsterdam

Noticed in other threads comments that KLM had reduced some freqs at certain UK airports.

S17 here had 4 return flights M-F with temporarily a 5th reinstated for part of the summer.

S18 looks like 4 return flights as far as I can tell, no signs of a 5th this year so far, unless I've missed it.

Here's hoping for continued growth in 2018, continuing the recovery that took root in 2017. But economic factors - and Brexit - may have a say.

ps. Interesting BA have a full programme f/t LHR today - I recall the days the airport was shut on NYD!

why would you bother just with 1 rotation on Sat? Surely there's time to operate at least 1 other somewhere?
