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

This is good news in the summer peak. What days are they adding service?

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.
