Got a jump seat ride on a BM DC9 from Teeside to LHR pre 9/11.😎 those were days.

Those were the days! I managed a jump-seat on Qantas when they operated a MAN-LHR-SYD route.

Several jump seat rides on BA and BM during the 80s and 90s - those were the days. Regarding the Teesside service I wish them the best of luck, I think they will need it.

Slots are for 1530 arrival, 1730 departure. The airline is currently negotiating for Winter season slots.
