TopBonus Frequent Flier Plan

Being reported that TopBonus (the frequent flier plan that was closely associated, previously spun off from, the now-defunct Air Berlin) has signed up bmi as a new airline partner.

Flights need to be booked via a special URL (https://www.flybmi.com/topbonus) to earn 2,000 miles per flight.

More interesting that the URL is flybmi.com, not bmiregional.com.

I wonder how much LH Group and Miles & More will care.

BRS-GOT

The timetable on BM’s website is showing the following 2 x weekly service operating from 28JAN. Flights showing as operating through S18. However flights not yet available to book on website.

BM1857 BRS 13:40 GOT 16:50 ER4 14

BM1856 GOT 11:40 BRS 15:00 ER4 5
BM1856 GOT 14:40 BRS 16:00 ER4 2

I thought that maybe BM are planning for the aircraft to operate to BHX as there is over 18hrs from arriving and departing GOT.

BM1441 BHX 06:20 GOT 09:20 ER4 45
BM1443 BHX 12:25 GOT 15:25 ER4 237
BM1443 BHX 13:15 GOT 16:15 ER4 1

BM1442 GOT 09:50 BHX 10:55 ER4 45
BM1444 GOT 15:55 BHX 17:00 ER4 237
BM1444 GOT 16:45 BHX 17:50 ER4 1

However this doesn’t seem to be the case as it doesn’t fit with the BHX-GOT timetable.

BM1856 on a Friday seems to take 2 hours longer to get back to BRS?

If that's true, maybe it's going via somewhere? Maybe BHX is about to change to being a via?

BM1822 leaves runway at BRS

Statement on BRS website

"After landing at Bristol Airport at 11.36 this morning an Embraer 145 inbound from Frankfurt (flight number BM1822) left the runway while taxiing. Passengers were disembarked and returned to the terminal by coach. None of the 25 people on board were hurt."

E145 G-CKAG incident at BRS

This looks a bit more serious than the statement above

Runway still blocked and could be closed all day

Met vis at the time was 300m

Quite agree jon01..
On the busiest day of the year virtually zero comment over on the BRS thread apart from a non local posting a press article.
In other reporting,comments include awaiting clearance of debris from the R/W after CAA accident investigation work.

I suppose the posts on here could equally have been posted to the BRS thread. In any case for an airport that handles over 8 mppa BRS is generally a relatively quiet board.

I was about to post on the BRS board but it's only a summary of the flights affected.

Having seen some stills of footage from ITV WestCountry Tonight, it looks like the aircraft has fully departed the taxiway and is on the grass adjoining the point where the taxiway joins the western end of 27.

The hull in question, G-CKAG, is relatively new to the BM fleet, having joined from Hop! in July this year.

That's a very long-standing route, but its demise is completely understandable. Much less transfer traffic between the helicopter ports of ABZ and NWI (and many offshore staff are now sent by train instead). Maybe T3 will be able to consolidate things a bit.

BM S18

Looks as if the current Nordica lease is coming to a end 23MAR18.

Nordica’s CPH-GRQ and CPH-ORB currently operated by a BM ER4 are now showing as being operated by CR7 from 25MAR18. I Have checked Nordica’s schedule and no other routes are showing as being operated by a ER4.

Not sure where you’ve been checking, but the lease is with LOT.

I suspect that in view of the weather forecast a lot of business meetings have been postponed.

Not sure it's solely weather related as MUC-SOU has been cancelled on numerous occasions in recent weeks
