Anyone any idea why BA have cancelled both afternoon and evening flight from Belfast on Sunday 09th Dec?

Means latest departure that day is 0915am making a weekend visit impossible using LHR.

cheapest one way on Aer Lingus evening service is £420.

SUMMER 19

Anyone know what Aer Lingus plan to do with their sun routes next year and who will be operating them?
will it be a reduced season again?

I've heard it is pretty much the same as last year. EI-STA from ASL however Faro swaps with Malaga on somedays so that it is earlier/later. I can't verify it as I haven't seen anything myself but thats what I've heard.

Edit: I seem to be right.

I think it's planned to be a slightly longer season of flights

Aer Lingus expand LHR from 21 to 25 weekly (switched from Cork) during June-August.

Flybe

Surprised to see no discussion on the BHD thread in light of yesterdays Flybe developments.

​​​​​​Any wholesale changes at Flybe certainly could have huge implications for BHD, and the airline has had a long association with the airport. Surely, it has been fruitful in the past, but it has changed. Their key route to LGW, what was their flagship route and potentially at a time busiest in their network is gone, Ryanair has joined the fray, and along the way Aer Lingus has turned up at BHD. Easyjet and Ryanair have entered some of Flybe's largest markets, namely BHX/MAN...

...all that said, they'd appear to be resilient, opening a frequent service on LCY and maintaining the other routes.

What are your views, what will the future operation at BHD look like?

Maybe wait for the deal to be finalised, and if there are new owners they give some indication of their intentions?

It's not a done deal as the shareholders have to approve it. On LSE, at the minute they are baiting for COW,s blood.

They can bay all they like, but rather like Tory and DUP MPs on another matter, it's either this deal, or no deal, and the latter will likely be disastrous for the employees, and even worse for shareholder's wealth than accepting the deal.

Regional politics have no place on this airline forum. You cannot compare. Andrew Tinkler buying in with 10% of shares in Flybe might be the game changer as he may have the knowledge of a counter bid. Virgin have totAlly undervalued Flybe.

Accordingly, following completion of the Subsidiary Sale, if the Scheme is not approved, the Flybe Directors intend to take steps to wind-up the Company and Shareholders are likely to receive no value for their shares in Flybe. Accordingly, the Flybe Directors believe that the terms of the Acquisition remain in the best interests of Flybe Shareholders as a whole and unanimously recommend that Flybe Shareholders vote in favour of the resolutions to be proposed at the Court Meeting and the General Meeting.

Extract from statement made to London Stock Exchange if the sale does not go through ...vultures overhead

It is being printed on boarding cards each morning?

I do hate how FR24 conflates flight numbers ( which mean nothing ) with actual flight designators.

If you mean BEE2YL today, standard ILS approach to runway 22 by DH8D G-JEDW from EGPE. The only oddity being that the Belfast Approach controller doesn't have primary-radar altitude readout at the moment.
