im curious how having BA on LHR is going to screw up the flybe PSO London route when they themselves are operating a daily SEN on top of the LGWx4 daily

This has been on the cards for a while

I suspect this is just IAGs way of dipping a toe, they can already to an extent see connectivity demand thanks to EI so if they will the flights at decent yield im sure it will return for longer next season, it also wouldn't surprise me to see a limited LCY from them

The rail line was washed away 6 years ago today.....cutting off Plymouth and Cornwall for months

Today we have Storm Dennis

Think it would be better for NQY if they focused on maturing the LHR route in the hope of a better (or all round) flying season.

correct.

the terminal is closed. The field is open for business and I suspect will soon get a great deal of storage movements

I know Covid-19 has put an end to many plans, but does anyone know whatís going to happen to the London to Newquay PSO? Will BA up their new route and try it out, or is this another one for Loganair?

My current thinking is that this is probably BAs to loose

They are going to have aircraft, crews and slots that need using and if they can use them to newquay while the economy recovers and the demand for air travel recovers all the better, especially if it’s underwritten via a pso ?

CS It's not going to happen. The world has changed for good. Home working will continue even if the viris is eradicated and with the low levels of people currently testing positive for antinodies, it could continue for years.
BA will be looking to shed capacity not use it. Expect to see a much slimmer airline with consequent redundancies amongst staff and equipment. The world is already in DEEP recession

Another cheery post. Whilst some or all of this may be true Iím not sure I would agree that the world has changed for good thus meaning everything that we did know a couple months back will not now be required in the future.

From my perspective CS the answer is we donít know. I do believe there will be a need for regional travel and connectivity but what that looks like, we will only know once markets and industries stabilise. Timescales will, in my view, depend largely on the antibody testing and vaccine availability as they are the only options currently on the table which would, again in my view, give customers confidence to go back to smaller confined spaces. The nonsense around keeping a middle seat free on aircraft doesnít cut it.

Government response to any recession will be interesting too. They will want people to be spending in to the economy so staycations could very well work in Cornwalls favour for what is left of this summer and next. Fuel has typically been one of the larger costs to aviation but thatís at an all time low now, plus some restructuring to a market which could naturally thin out anyway (we donít know which airlines will last the next 12 months).

From my perspective the question sits more around long haul. The likes of BA have a lot of aircraft with cabins which they may struggle to fill (First, Club) some of them with significant volumes of those premium seats which come at premium costs. Difficulties in selling those will push the cost of economy seats up. If the government still sees regional PSO routes a need, then BA may well benefit from operating those or expanding the CityFlyer portfolio to cover more regional flying.

" so staycations could very well work in Cornwalls favour for what is left of this summer and next. "

I think a few people might remember the non-friendly attitude of some Cornish people to outsiders during this shut-down................

that was largely self inflicted by people going to second homes unnecessarily.

Either way, Iím not sure there will be demand for A319 2 or 3 times a day between NQY and London. Maybe as mentioned above could be good suit for BACF.

I don't think home working will continue, it's never as good as having a team together in an office. Plus add the fact the technology has been available for years but has never been used as much as it could've. Long distance meetings may change for sure.

You might want to look at the p1ss poor medical facilities available in Cornwall for the locals, let alone any extra numbers visitors would bring before shooting your mouth off.
