The changes have resulted in 16 fewer flights a week than August and only 2 were originally planned.
Pete, Is this to do with the 737 MAX problems or a supply and demand one? I can't see the MAX back in operation this side of Christmas.

Depends on who you believe but understandable if they have a chance to consolidate at the same time saving on leasing costs and the relying on compensation. I haven't been told which aircraft is leaving but I presume it will be the Estonian A320 but I don't know for sure.

June 2019 passenger figures

CAA provisional stats show BHX up 1.62% 1259647 up from June 2018 1239181.

2 New Routes albeit one is very brief

Jet2 Saturday Innsbruck from late December 2019 for the ski season.

The other one much sort after as a permanent route - alas one day only and subject to change.

Air India - Mumbai - BHX - Mumbai, AI130/1 B77W Monday 5th August only. It is the Heathrow flight for one day only but it is actually in GDS as bookable from BHX.

Air India are stopping the Friday Delhi - Copenhagen for winter - is this aircraft destined for the rumoured 4th Amritsar service?

Is this to do with the potential Heathrow strike due to take place on Monday 5th August?

Why just that date out of the multiple dates for potential strike?

June Route Analysis 2019

This is just the schedule routes which does include Thomas Cook and on certain route TUI (don't ask)

Source: CAA for the monthly figures and FR24 for rotations (Health Warning as not always accurate) - Load factors - seat maps also not always accurate.

These in general are good other than the usual suspects, Vienna, Agadir and some flybe French routes which had in some instances only just started. Some Flybe load factors are excellent but the caveat is maybe fewer flight with more cancellations boosting load factor. Lufthansa in general operated bigger aircraft and thus more seats hence load factors dipped. Blue Air operated more Bucharest flights and load factor went up which doesn't always happen but they did use rather more 735's. In June 2019.Brussels Airlines using the CRJ9 boosting load factor (4th Brussels a day restarts in winter on a CRJ9) and Dublin obviously increased passengers and load factor despite the RJ85 operating. Long-haul was quite good for June mainly due to Ramadan ending earlier in 2019. Domestic flights were also decent although not sure about the easyjet load factor on Belfast as I suspect I have made a mistake somewhere.

Must be covering for G-FDZD which has gone to NWI to cover Sunwing.

Analysis & TUI

And of course they would not be there without your help with the formatting. It takes long enough using FR24 for rotations with the only alternative to wait for the punctuality stats to be released by the CAA to get the exact rotations but by the time they are out the FR24 data has gone in respect of the actual aircraft type operated, as I only have silver (3 months) and not gold. At least now I can upload in minutes rather than hours

TUI

Despite the 789 operating the morning Ibiza has just left estimating back 04.45 instead of 13.15. ZD went to Norwich to cover Sunwing and for some reason ZF operated only the Antalya this afternoon and nothing this morning - tech?

Ryanair

From other threads it mentions the Faro and Tenerife bases closing and BHX has 3 winter frequencies a week from Faro using their base and one Tenerife flight operated from the TFS base. The 3 based BHX aircraft this winter are busy other than Tuesday and wonder if these will be chopped or operated from the BHX base.

The main problem leading to the above is that the based Olympus A321 is grounded with brake issues

With any luck EZY will pick up the CDG and AMS slots as well from Birmingham that Flybe had to give up. Would be nice to have them back in the midlands a bit more.

If Easyjet add a 2x daily to each of Edinburgh, Paris and Amsterdam and 1x daily to Aberdeen, then it would make life very uncomfortable for Flybe at Birmingham

I agree and think there will be more to following from easyjet from BHX

But the GLA service is to be operated by a frame based there. Are posters looking for BHX-based services?
