Does anyone know was there any restrictions on EI's sunshine routes in terms of load? I'm presuming ASL don't have any on 147 pax?

Eurowings

with Eurowings now operating Dash8 from LGW, could BHD now be on the radar? Potentially feed Lufthansa pax with a size of aircraft which would suit the NI market?
Just a thought

You could add Hop TAP IB Express all to that list of possible carriers with regional aircraft but depends if BHD marketing are actually marketing BHD.

Looks like off sale, no availability on any date! Shortage of aircraft perhaps?

Appears ‘Off Sale’ on JetsGo Holidays website.

What’s the issue - Germania unable to provide a plane, or something else?

Has EZY the space to accommodate or are bookings that low that they can?

Perhaps the angle of the question isn’t ‘are EZY bookings low enough to accommodate’, rather ‘are there sparse enough bookings taken on JetsGo PMI to be able to be re-booked without issue, even if EZY PMI is heavily booked’??

If the comment about a departure after 9.30pm is correct, isn't it amazing that, in spite of knowing the rules from the start, this has been allowed to run to the very last minute.

Still - new route kicking off with Flybe to DSA.

Should be handy for the hordes of fanatical Norn Irn Donny supporters to use come Autumn time when the Rovers are entertaining the might of Accrington Stanley in a League 1 showpiece at the Keepmoat!

They’ve tried this route before and it failed. There are a lot of NI students at Sheffield Uni, but MAN is so easy to get to, you wonder how many of this potential market will use BE from DSA.

I would have thought it less disruptive to switch the flights to International, in that case, rather than scrapping them altogether and sending the passengers to International anyhow for an Easyjet flight.

But that's why I don't run an 'airline'.
