Hi, there is an article in The Scotsman newspaper re. Transfer of Erj's from BMI to Loganair so latter can start longer European routes.

Cheers mate. Surely this will pave the way for more ERJs for the BMR fleet. I know that last summer there was a real shortage of aircraft and CKAF/G seem to have decreased these issues now. Alternatively could these be the first signs of these "Fantasy" E-Jets on the horizon. Either way unless they cut routes or take back some aircraft from the Brussels contract and/or move the INV based ERJ to GLA there will need to be extra airframes brought in.

In the absence of anything ERJ-135/145 sized currently being available, I'd quite like to see BM go for the MRJ 70/90. The E-2 just seems too big for BM, the MRJ is the smallest available!

If only the Dornier 528/728 had been built!

The E170 id probably a good fit for BMI.

The CEO has been quotted saying Second-hand E190/5s or potentially even CRJ900s but I feel the latter is highly unlikely.

bmi regional rebrands as flybmi

bmi regional Embraer 135 © Tis Meyer / PlanePics.org


bmi regional has rebranded as flybmi, adjusting the name to the website domain used, the carrier has said in a statement.

The website and booking engine have also been updated and simplified. The carrier's new logo continues to reference the legacy of the bmi brand and has not been designed anew.

The new booking engine has been developed by Germanys' 2e Systems.

bmi regional itself was rebranded from British Midland Commuter in 2001. The carrier was a subsidiary of bmi british midland prior to the acquisition of the airline by British Airways in 2012. Subsequently, BA did not retain ownership of bmi regional and sold it to Sector Aviation Holdings. Nowadays, flybmi is owned by Airline Investments Limited which also controls Loganair.

No they do not operate these mentioned charters anymore.

They do, however, offer a Saturday service to Sardinia (Olbia) on behalf of Neilson Active Holidays.

bmi one of the least punctual UK airlines

bmi is one of the UK's least punctual airlines, tying with Thomas Cook for average delay length of 21 minutes. WizzAir was the worst overall (flying to UK airports), with an average of 23 minutes delay.

https://news.sky.com/story/wizz-air-...ports-11462905

I'd be interested to see what bmi's cancellation performance is. Given the frequency that I experience, I have a feeling it's pretty bad.

4 years ago, bmi was the UK's most punctual airline.

I'll be honest - any journalistic report which has Ryanair listed as a UK airline and Eastern Airways listed as an international airline serving the UK ought to be treated with caution.

Given that the average was 15 minutes it would seem that there's not many of them that are any good if 23 mins is the worst!

That's a pity, with another two to go to Loganair the BMI ERJs will be harder to catch. (With any luck it will be G-EMBJ and EMBN that go to Loganair.
