FrequentlyFlying: it was a charter flight that positioned in from Lisbon but details in terms of where it went and how many pax perhaps someone else could share more info?

Did you have to post a video of what has to be one of the worst ''so called'' comedies ever to air on television!

Now I'm taking a wild guess that you also enjoy the equally hideous ''Mrs Browns Boys'' :-)

Maybe off topic. But quite how ‘canberra97’ can compare the excellent Father Ted, to the atrocious ‘Mrs Browns Boys’ is beyond me.

On topic: BOH appears to be doing very well for a small regional airport, long may it continue. Still not sure where the jef2 rumours came from.

Channel Islands

Good find! Jersey looks to be Mon/Fri/Sat and Guernsey Sat only, both operated by an E135. Presumably w patterns off the existing NWI/GLA/EDI flights.

Great news this, pure coincidence, what with the current flybe issues, or more to it?? Maybe more announcements of possible routes to the likes of EDI, GLA and ABZ in the future perhaps??

Embraer jets will be a welcome alternative to the turboprops at Southampton

Rather than being a strategic move against BE, I think this is more a tactical move to fill up the schedule of the new jets

Bournemouth seems to be on a roll right now. Rigby are starting to prove themselves.

Southampton will most likely double down to try and secure some kind of LCC operation with all this news and the uncertainty of Flybe.

Great news to get Jersey back again and to have Guernsey which hasn’t been operated since Dan Air / JEA days !!

Its definitely the right sized aircraft for the route , Flybe had loads around 40/45 so with some good marketing ( already got Jersey travel service selling hotels and flights ) it should work

This will take the number of new destinations or reinstated services next year to 8 , incredible going in such a short space of time

Well done Rigby group

Left Bournemouth to Islamabad as E9573, before heading back to the UK (Gatwick) via Baku as E9574, then positioning to Madrid as EVE075P.

Might be off topic but there is a comparison as the same production company are involved in both of those atrocious programmes, and the use of ''excellent'' in reference to Father Ted, I think not as it's just as atrocious and painful to watch as the other example!

Back on topic

Good news regarding Loganair and Bournemouth although it's not going to have much of an impact to the current Blue Islands schedule at SOU especially as it's only a very limited summer schedule using aircraft on a W pattern from the Channel Islands but nonetheless a great addition to the network profile from Bournemouth.

Despite all the rumours about TUI adding additional aircraft for S20 including new 787 services nothing has been announced. However EXT has announced a new W19 service and DSA has announced a new S20 787 service already.

Absolutely not he is totally hideous and not funny in the slightest.

To quote you when you say ''Next you'll be saying''.....I haven't said anything other than my total dislike for the programmes that I have already mentioned.

With suggestions like that your coming across as the comedian and not a very good one at that.

But in saying that and your determination to continue this conversation isn't the phrase ''going off topic'' relevant in this case!

The only TUI long haul from BOH are the few cruise ship charters on P&O for Hays Travel (1 or 2 a year) - certainly up to end 2020
They were planning a Xmas shopping 4 night package to NYC but with the dire £ v $ exchange rate that was canned.
Hays have not got the stomach to try things like Palmair/Bath Travel once successfully did in the past such as the day trips to Cairo Rome and Prague (These trips pretty much sold out as soon as they became on sale)
A few summers ago Hays did some package holiday and Cunard cruise charters from BOH to PMI VCE and BCN using BA Cityflyer and Titan but lack of advertising saw them not selling well - never to be repeated

BOH is not going to see TUI 787 short haul ops -

more flights from regions for some TUI packages have been given over to 3rd party airlines such as Freebird Air Europa Norwegian Volotea and Alba Star

Given the current climate of uncertainty and exchange fluctuations/risks Rigby are clearly doing something right in their relationship with FR or the yields have been improving for them to retry or reopen routes and long may it continue, well done to all concerned. Maybe TUI are just not in the place to expand as thought atm, the Jet2 ‘story’ is the only real unevent and that isn’t Rigbys fault more a whisper being megaphoned on here, am as guilty as anyone for turning hope into belief. Loganair announcement is probably more something to encourage further small announcements and of course keep working FR for some more slow steady growth.
Been a good first year for Rigby!

Where has the rumour come from about TUI and extra aircraft for 2020 , bit like the Jet 2 one I think !!

TUI have only put a carbon copy of 2019 on sale or help future bookings and I doubt very much they will add anything to any UK airport until they see how the destinations added to a lot of regional airports fare for next summer first

Egypt sold very well from Exeter a few years ago but not so much from BOH for some reason , and indeed they pulled the programme half way through the winter season as it was that bad for sales

However things do change in booking trends with the public , look at TUI pretty much going full season to Paphos next winter

Hopefully the airport may consider a lounge being added in the not to distant future in the terminal , plenty of space
I would hope though first , Rigby group have a look at the car park and get some gypies in to tarmac the whole lot , dreadful to walk through all that mud , holes and wet grass with your luggage . Better still build a cheap metal multi storey over the winter when it's quiet ( wishful dream I know ! ! )
