Ryanair & easyjet

It seems BHX has got off fairly lightly from the Ryanair cull with FR664/5 Dublin the main victim on Monday, Friday and Sunday leaving just 4 Dublin flights on those days but 6 on a Tuesday!

easyjet

Summer 18 is shaping up well with Belfast mid June to end of August showing no reductions therefore an extra service each weekday compared to 2017.

Also add the continuing GVA at three a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Maybe the future is bright........

I did read the rooms are in kit form for self assembly.

Certainly a big hotel.An excellent addition for BHX.

That's good news for BHX.

We seem to get a small upgrade each season from Easy Jet now.

Next move hopefully 5ba week then another destination..like pulling teeth but making progress 😀

Rather odd scheduling even before the cuts to have 6 on quiet days.

Who knows what might happen with EZY next summer if the rumours of a Monarch acquisition are to be believed! Guess we'll find out tomorrow! (29/9)

It's a very odd day to make an announcement though - traditionally anyway.

Were there to be no announcement today it will make some of the armchair pundits and doom-mongers on the Monarch thread look a bit daft.

Monarch will be a huge loss, can another carrier fill the gap? I speak as a victim as I was due to fly ZB974 to Malaga this afternoon.

The gaps will be filled but at a cost as fares will rise and extra flight will be added but not at the same numbers of Monarch flight
so a net loss over all.A big loss to LGW/LTN/BHX/MAN and LBA.
The people that were to fly seat only will probably have accommodation etc booked so will be keen to try
and rearrange flights but packages will take longer to sort, the only good thing for pax is that most routes are
covered by other airlines as well.

So, because of the sad loss of Monarch, I believe the following scheduled routes have gone:

LIS
NCE
VLC
VCE
ARN
PVK
GIB
KTT (Dec only)

I would imagine Jet2 would pick up NCE and VCE, but what about the others? Thomas Cook maybe as there are some Airbuses up for grabs now?

Maybe now Vueling and Norwegian will restore dropped flights for the coming winter and summer 18

I doubt GIB will come back, heard loads have been poor.

I doubt that any of these routes will operate in the summer of 2018.

BHX will face a huge challenge maintaining passenger numbers next summer.

The Monarch base was 9 aircraft.

Jet 2 have increased by 2 for summer 2018 leaving a deficit of 7.

Also with the loss of the loss of Norwegian, Vuelling, Cobalt, United, the Emirates reduction and wider circumstances concerning the state of the economy, the pound and the security situation 2018 is not shaping up well

2017 will be the zenith passenger number wise for the next few years.

It took 5 years for the gap to be filled after BMI baby ceased ops to get lost routes back such as PRG,LIS & NCE . MON will not leave a gap, it will be a Chasm .

I do not think that routes will be one of those assets, pilots/fleet/slots maybe.

Monarch aircraft fleet are not assets as they are all leased and therefore they will be returned to their lessors, Monarch don't own any slots so no assets there, eventually those slots will just be distributed to other airlines, routes are not assets either as any airline is able to pick them up themselves at no extra cost.

What assets did Monarch actually have for the creditors to sell off?

Although Monarch crew were obviously assets to the company they are not a financial asset which can be sold on by the creditors, as individuals they find themselves unemployed.

This whole saga is so sad and could and should off have been dealt with far sooner.
