So this is fantastic that the marketing department have won this prestigious award. Now can someone remind me which route exactly it was for?

Marketing is a bit like a religious cult
Give them lots of money and they convince you something good is on its way if you believe enough.

I see from an article in the on-line magazine from the Routes conference that KB is singlehandedly responsible for the campaign to remove APD, and the photo used was taken on the Belfast International stand.

B733 EI-STA arrived about 30 mins ago

Slightly confused initially as to why a 737 was going overhead into City until I remembered this thread.

So the FAO and AGP start tomorrow. I am sure the local EI crew will find this strange to see a flight depart with their flight number but they don't get to operate it.

Good point. A number of years ago I flew to MAN with Flybe and the flight was operated by VLM and there was one uniformed Flybe crew working along side the VLM crew member.

I am sure Flybe crews would be able to give them a wee hand getting their heads round it !!

So another route loss for the airport. IOM albeit a small one itís still another route to go.
Iceland in May. IOM in June. Not a good start to a summer season.
Atleast the Airport won that marketing award though

So 3 routes and potentially KLM from October?
and personally the fact that ASL are operating EI summer routes this year spells the last season to me

Very confused, they were just about to ramp-up to twice-daily as of 12 June. Are we sure someone isn't just over-reacting to the discontinuance of the current flight number?

Looks like last flight is operating 11th June as flights are no longer available to book on BEís website beyond that date

I thought T3 got rid of their reservations set up, so don't now have the infrastructure to operate scheduled flights in their own right?

The BE/T3 agreement was for five years. Surely BE aren't walking away already?
