Question

Interesting article. A couple of weeks ago I was departing IAD for LHR. We use stand 32 which is right next to the BMI gate for MAN. Counted just over 40 pax for BMI whereas I was just about full in 3 class 777. . .Any BMI guys got more info - I would have thought ORD might be fareing a little better?

I wouldn't read too much into that story, the Trans-Atlantic traffic is building up again, and the word is that Bish is quite happy about it.

HI KCl,

well yes that is what we say for now, but there is still a large unanswered question about numbers of a/c vis a vis demand in the absence of BD's LHR Atlantic operation. SK certainly don't need lift, nor the rest of Star Alliance I think. Hence the DAT talks it seems.
