Qatar Airways BHX - DOH service no longer on sale via their website for any future dates. Same applies for CWL.

As speculated. Let's hope it returns for 2022...

I find it personally odd they'd sooner get rid of BHX and CWL yet keep LGW going 3x daily in addition to the new BA daily LGW-DOH all under One World. I suspect that, and slot sitting, to be the reason why though.

I suspect that, at the moment, QTR are making more money using the majority of their pax aircraft on cargo flights. At my local airport in The Netherlands (not AMS) we get up to 5 a day. Mainly B777s but also their B787s and even A359s.

They are still on sale on the BA site, from 31st October, except Tuesdays.

[EDIT: And on the Qatar site]

Great news about ATH, used the Aegean service a few times in the past.

Can't find any BHX QR flights to book on their website? All one and two stop connections via DUB or using Avanti to get to LHR . Think we have to accept QR will not be back at BHX for the foreseeable.

You are right (I wish I'd taken a screen shot of the direct flights yesterday). They are not there now. I fear that you are also right on your second point.

GIB

Rumours circulating that Eastern are to announce BHX-GIB. Apparently they are basing an E170 in GIB this summer to also operate to SOU. BHX has reappeared in the drop down booking menu on Eastern website.

Does anyone know what's going on with Emirates schedule in Birmingham. They appear to run a 14:20 flight everyday and a 21:40 flight every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. This then changes to one flight a day with a flight departing at 13:30. Would've thought they would be upping the frequency as we get out of the pandemic?

Emirates are going to operate flights out of the UK from the 2nd February, with limited pax flights out of MAN & LHR with outbound pax only, plus BHX and GLA as cargo only.

Flying Hi

Not sure. I just happened to be looking for some flights in December and noticed the schedule from 31 October onwards was strange. Hoping they reinstate the twice daily by then. It would make sense to do so as passenger traffic should pick up by then.

Birmingham City Council making available a loan facility of 18.5m to BHX amid fears it will struggle to fulfill legally binding covenants connected to it`s external debt facilities of more than 500m.

That is an astonishing level of debt.

500m

Debt facility is banker-speak for "If you pay a monthly fee, we guarantee we will lend you the money in future when you tell us you need it"
How much of the potential 500m loan has actually been borrowed, and how much is still at the "phone us when you need to borrow the money" stage ?
