Yes we had 3 weekend based in the peak summer and also had the flight operating in and out of Milan too. The passengers figures for these flight was very good all summer in the 80-90s for most flights. There is a drop of now as the season is coming to a close but still figures in the 50-70s region.
I can understand if it is affecting the LCY operation to scale back to consolidate. But seems a massive decreases for STN. Surely with BRS and BHX already having had service cut for next year that would have been able to improve the LCY operation of there has be issues with the weekend bases.
I myself was expecting a small increase at STN for next summer on current routes and maybe a few others routes added maybe JMK, JTR, JSI.

It must have been awkward and expensive to locate crew at MAN/BHX etc for the weekend. It seems that the weekend Cityflyer services from EDI,and I assume GLA , will operate next year, but these have a locally based pool of crew.

Parked I suspect, just like every summer since 2009 when they were formed. I myself suffered a four delay on a GLA-LCY route as the crew was not rested from their weekend sun flights. Once the core LCY starts taking a hit, this was always going to be scaled back IMHO.

I mean that for summer 2019 the LCY based fleet will not be flying out of BHX/BRS and will likely be parked at the weekend to mitigate the impact on core LCY Sunday schedules which took a hit this year.

BA themselves and the link is below if it opens

BA

Malaga and Faro not mentioned but you are right they are all still bookable from STN although nothing surprising in that these days as most airlines seem slow to remove flights from sale at times.

​​​BA have not dropped any of the routes that they operate from STN. They are however reducing the frequency of there flights to FLR and IBZ In S19

FLR - Frequency reducing from 2 x Weekly (Sat & Sun) to Weekly (Sat) for S19

IBZ - Frequency reduced to Weekly for S19. BACF operated 3 x weekly an IBZ-STN and 2 x weekly STN-IBZ during S18.

BACF’s flight to AGP, FAO, NCE, PMI and TXL from STN are planned to continue operating Weekly for S19, as they gave this year

BA removed the STN flights that they have cancelled for S19 a few days ago. The traveltrade post states that they have made a number of flight cancellations to flight from STN for S19. Unfortunately the info displayed is not accurate as it doesn’t say the day of operation that they are cancelled on. The only reason i know this is because I was booked to travel next June on one of the cancelled flights from IBZ to STN flights and I have been rebooked on the flight currently available to book online.

The agent that rebooked me said that if BA had decided to drop any of the STN routes then they would be listed under the Route Suspension.

Whilst not disagreeing, not everything is rosy with the opposition. I was on an Etihad 777 last week in business. My seat was inoperative, the IFE had to be rebooted 3 times and the forward J class lavatory was unusable for 90 per cent of the flight. The food seemed better than QR (not as good as BA/CX), the cabin service behind QR. The 380 cabin though was very smart and I liked the layout.

Good Old DM, being outraged at a situation that has existed for some time on many airlines. I have a strong suspicion that the DM has supported the lowering of prices and the transparency of unit pricing. Thus (as I have said before):-
  • Public want more for less
  • Public want to choose what they pay for
  • Airlines (and many other companies) provide this
  • Public complains at having to pay more than they thought.
  • Read the rules and what other people have experienced and you won't be surprised.
