Does anyone know why the E90 Leased from Stobart has not operated for BA since 20th December and it has been operating for BE from SEN since then. I thought the leased aircraft had been schedule to operate for BACF for through the Winter schedule

Of course. Little business traffic for over two weeks, and BA are in business.

BACF are certainly proactive in flexing schedules by the day, week, and holiday period to reflect differences in demand, their commercial team seem very good at predicting demand.

I remember the old VLM at London City used to just do the Antwerp flights with one aircraft, departing at 0800, 1100, 1400, 1700 and 2000, on all weekdays. While good for aircraft utilisation and simple to schedule, it in no way reflects demand which rises and falls on quite a different curve, and as a result there were some rotations regularly pretty empty both ways. Note VLM are no longer with us, BACF are.

I think the comparison is a bit unfair. There is no way VLM could have done with their Fokker 50 what BACF is able to do with the EJets which can go to leisure destinations around the Med. VLM did try stuff that was practical with a Fokker 50, such as noon-time flights to JER and IOM, but realistically options to complement bread and butter business destinations from LCY with a turboprop were (and are) somewhat limited.

BACF are planning to use a RJ85 leased from Jota to operate flights from 1st April through to mid July. The aircraft will operate for BACF Monday to Thursday.

A second aircraft is to be leased from WDL for the month of May. The BAe146-200 will be mostly used on the ORY service.

According to the website Jethro’s fleet listing, BACF have acquired 2 secondhand E190’s from China Southern. The aircraft are approx 7 years old and will be registered G-LCAA and G-LCAB.

BA Cityflyer Fleet List

Does anyone have any info if they are being leased by BACF or have the been bought?. When are the aircraft expected to enter service with BACF?.

BA might be smelling blood. Hopefully BHD LCY is profitable but I doubt if it's a core route for Flybe's new owners.

Their whole LCY network might be chopped imo. They are going to have to find room for flights to CWL and DSA and Virgin might want more of focus on LHR so it will be interesting to see if they continue to fly into LCY in the future.

BHD-LCY is a high-frequency route (6 rotations tomorrow, for example) so could be room for 2 operators if BE have to reduce.

I am surprised that BA don't already operate it from LCY considering they operate most of the main domestic routes already from there.
