Anyone know which two Royal Mail contracts have lost from next year? (They have retained their other 6 contracts)

BasilFawlty 6th Jun 2013 19:46

As far as I know:

BFS-EMA-BFS: 11x weekly
EDI-EMA-EDI: 10x weekly
EDI-STN-EDI: 10x weekly
NCL-EMA-NCL: 5x weekly
NCL-STN-NCL: 5x weekly

EXT-EMA-EXT: 5x weekly

BFS-STN-BFS: 10x weekly

G-CELW will move from EXT to BFS.

I take it Exeter has been taken up by another airline then because its full most of the time, would make sense moving G-CELW to BFS the aircarft is also always full

BasilFawlty 6th Jun 2013 20:01

Isn't the Royal Mail paying anyway (no matter how full or empty a flight is)?

ematom1 6th Jun 2013 20:04

Yeah it's Royal Mail who pays for the routes to be operated I just doubt Royal Mail would drop the Exeter route which seems to do well and go out almost full every night, G-CELW would be better utilised at BFS

BasilFawlty 6th Jun 2013 20:06

The EXT route is not being dropped as far as I know, it going to another airline. Titan perhaps?

LBIA 6th Jun 2013 20:07

Understand Titan Airways are taking over the EXT-EMA route.

Does G-CELW move to BFS today to start Stansted as its just landed at BFS as EXS036E?

LBIA 8th Jun 2013 13:23

G-CELW will be covering freight duties as the Belfast based G-CELO was sent over to Leeds this morning.

BasilFawlty 8th Jun 2013 13:39

Anyone know when the new mail contracts will start?

jet2 extra aircraft
Was at NWI on fri this week and ex bmibaby aircraft was towed into air livery hanager g.toyd, is this a extra aircraft for Jet2 or a other airline.regardsStuart

Should be G-GDFT, which is indeed an ex. WW aircraft and will join the LS fleet later this season. Another ex. WW which will become G-GDFS is also expected to join the fleet, but I believe that one is still stored.

ematom1 8th Jun 2013 18:17

G-CELW will be operating tonight's Royal Mail flight BFS-EMA-BFS then returning to Exeter for Monday, does anyone know where G-GDFE has gone that was the usual aircraft used on that route for months but hasn't been in service for a good few months now?

BasilFawlty 8th Jun 2013 18:19

Heavy maintenance in BUD. Was supposed to fly back to the UK today but it's still on the ground.

BFS BHD 8th Jun 2013 18:36

Thanks Guys i guess G-GDFE will be based at BFS again when it finally comes back to UK?

ematom1 8th Jun 2013 18:38

Cheers wondered why it hasn't been on the Royal Mail flights past few months :)

BasilFawlty 8th Jun 2013 18:39

Most likely yes, G-GDFE has always been a BFS aircraft from the moment it joined the fleet.

BFS BHD 8th Jun 2013 18:41

Cheers :ok:

Were the ex-baby aircraft at one time operated by mainline?
