Oh slots will eventually be released BUT why would you allow people whom are your competition to potentially benefit from lost slots. Release them as late as you can and fight to hold them,

I agree, but why should airlines have such control over how the airport does business?

With the Schools reopening on January 4th school children would need to start quarantine on December 21st for most destinations.

The Test to Release for International Travel scheme is for people who need to self-isolate on arrival in England.

Under the scheme you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test. The earliest you can take the test is 5 full days after you left a destination not on the travel corridor list. If the result is negative, you can stop self-isolating.

The scheme is voluntary and applies to those self-isolating in England only.
The issue will always be that the scheme is voluntary. How many people will pay more for a test than in some cases a flight is debatable but I live in hope.

I think most people will take the common sense approach that visiting their family for Christmas in Europe, Caribbean etc is no more “dangerous” than people visiting their family in Hull or Wales, which is permitted.

But that’s for another thread. Clearly easyJet and BA believe there will be enough demand over the Christmas period to warrant a ramping up of flights to most destinations. As an industry employee on an industry forum, I don’t have any problem with it.

and for one there is no legal requirement to self-isolate, and for the other there is.

But as you said, for another thread.

TUI have been operating a lot of freight charters with pretty much their whole 787 fleet, more than one on some days, mainly with the -9 fleet.

Routes operated include;

Frankfurt-Greenville
Frankfurt-Mexico City
Frankfurt-Seoul
Stuttgart-Guardalajara
Stuttgart-Mexico City
Stuttgart-Detroit

At the time of writing G-TUIJ is in Stuttgart, G-TUIN in Guardalajara, and G-TUIO is in Mexico City.

Royal Air Maroc seems to be starting new routes to Marrakech (4 weekly) and Agadir(2 weekly) early next year. These routes were reported in various press as going to Lhr but they are sale on the RAM site to Lgw. Although the press seems to assume that each and every , especially new routes, will go to Lhr.

So 3 new BA long-haul routes in 2 days. Accra, Islamabad and Doha. What a surprise! Only Lima has gone, I think.

Lima, Bermuda and then LHR starting Orlando and Barbados in conjunction with Gatwick sees some frequency change, I’m sure they’ll be more changes to come.

San Jose temporarily suspended also.
