Any additions or corrections welcome.

Pax arriving in Guernsey require a 14-day quarantine. This will explain the delayed start of the service. However don't hold out too much hope for the 12th October. Guernsey isn't showing any signs of relaxing its Covid-19 controls.

It was a one off charter but as there were spare seats on the a/c flights were available for the general public.

EK
Figures of 180-200 pax have been quoted for the BHX flights since they restarted
Can anyone confirm this or have % (OP?)

I'm not privy to the EK BHX loads, however based on a B77W - 356 seats - that would mean just under 60pc, which would be just a could of points below what Manchester has been averaging at and so would make sense.

Hope that helps.

Spoke to crew member a couple of days last week who said 190 and 170 so definitely seems to be there or thereabouts. Believe freight is doing well

I have heard the same as Mark 101 and thus far only 2 x 360 seat aircraft used and the other 10 flights have been two class 428 seat so load factor around 50% based on what people are saying.

Strange update from Emirates in the last few days with Edinburgh and Newcastle back on sale at 7 a week and 5 a week respectively in December and BHX has changed to just 4 a week with the A380 removed and all 77W, yet locally reported forward bookings are not too bad.

I suppose plenty of time to change

I think we all know those updates are essentially ‘place holders’ and will bear no resemblance to ops in a few months time.

Yes, whilst EDI is scheduled at 7 p/w, Glasgow is only 4 p/w. Thinks sen the change with EK schedules on a weekly basis presumably on the basis of forward reservations. Even LHR saw a reduction in daily flights on last week's update.

Wizz Air appear to have delayed the new Riga and Vilnius flights until at least 4th/5th December.

times are showing as:-

Birmingham – Craiova W6 3766 16:05-21:15 Tue/Sat
Craiova – Birmingham W6 3765 14:00-15:25 Tue/Sat

Birmingham - Lasi W6 3684 20:50-02:05* Wed/Sun (& a one off flight on Fri 23/10)
Lasi - Birmingham W6 3683 18:35-20:05 Wed/Sun (& a one off flight on Fri 23/10)


good news adding 2 new unserved destinations, but a lead in time of only a month is very tight for new flights, I wonder if these might get delayed a bit like the new Riga & Vilnius?

Just to add on the negative side Qatar now 29 March at the earliest and Ryanair Vienna the same. Although Austrian Vienna is not due back to the same date their website has it loaded from 2-11-2020 with prices but if you try to book it shows sold out - just maybe a final decision has not been made? Brussels Airlines is another thought not to be due back until summer still have 4 a week bookable from 12 October. Swiss rumoured to be 4 or 5 a week in winter are still showing 12 bookable in November.

Ryanair have cut around 23 flights a week in October which could have been a lot worse. Dublin down to 5 a week (from 10) and Palma 2 (down from 7) oddly the same as Reus (no change) both believed to carrying few unsurprisingly.

Jet2 although pushed back the city breaks other than Rome and Krakow which are operating now continue to add Antalya and Dalaman flights ending up 9 a week by the end of October and both increased to 8 a week from this weekend. Kefalonia remains the strangest, a new route for 2020 but canned only for it to start last week for 4 flights. They also added a 4th Corfu a week the extra starting today but of course it is the end of season and they all end mid October
