I think they might struggle with RAK from a yield prospective unless they are getting some sort of marketing support. Have BFS had an links to Morocco before. I know Tunisia is/has operated before. Agadir would have been a better bet IMO.

What makes you say that? RAK has been the port used from most bases intermittently over Agadir and one presumes airlines have the data to support

Virgin

With the virgin buyout of Flybe and operating from BHD, does anyone know if Vs will still operate to Orlando next summer from BFS? And if so will the frequency be the same 6 months as this year ?

This sounds interesting! I’m already booked to use the new RAK service for a break in February. JTR in the winter could be cool, summer is totally mobbed and not overly enjoyable.

Just one point in allocation if Neo’s though. Would it make more sense to allocate the more efficient Neo’s to new routes in smaller bases as they get off the ground? The less efficient and presumably almost amortised Ceo’s can then become profit machines in bases where EZY can charge more?

I think someone might be pulling your chain. They don’t even do JTR from the big bases during the winter. Berlin I could see but as for the others not so much. I would have thought something like a LIS or RMU more likely.

I agree but connecting traffic via LHR and the regions such as GLA/MAN to CPH remains high as does traffic to HAM so possible the CPH.

I just don't think it will be strong enough to last. We will see.

What's the Goverment got to with Ryanair. APD?, something they will not be able to scrap despite promises just like Scottish Goverment.

The MAX issues might be a good excuse to use and slip away quietly.

Have any EZY A321s operated into Belfast? I myself haven't noticed any. According to the Bristol thread they could soon be a regular visitor. I am sure one also based at BFS would be put to good use.

BFS will have 3x A319s and 3xA320s based for the winter season, same as this summer.
BRS will have 2x A321NEOs based from November alongside 5x A319s and 8x A320s. One of the BRS based A321s will operate the midday BRS-BFS run on Fridays.

A few proper business routes would be great to see...as someone who regularly has to get to Nuremberg, a Berlin connection would be very useful! (Or not...seems there's no connections :-( )

Thought you would burst into flames if you walked over the threshold of Georgie Best's terminal

Its so common recently that it doesn’t even surprise me to hear about more. I am moved to a level of discomfort now that I’ll go out of my way to avoid them.

Exclude the safety aspect, if I’m flying, I need to be somewhere and the unreliability is problematic.

Is it more the ex Republic frames that are having issues or a mixed bag?

They’ve made some poor fleet choices over the years. Did they ever NEED the extra performance of the thirstier Q400 over the ATR?

Yesterday's was ECOF and a few earlier instances were from other reg-sets so it's more of a mixed bag

Anyway is this not better placed in the BHD thread, it seems like there has been far too much crossover in the last few days.
