I believe BA still had quite a few unaccounted for slots. According to what I can find online, at the peak, BA operated around 25 short haul aircraft, I think it might have been a few more and closer...

Iberia are flying their A359s in a 31/24/293 layout compared to 32/52/252 on the 777s, thats 3-3-3 with a 31" pitch in Y. I would expect BA to sacrifice some Economy seats for Premium Economy, but...

The 777s at LGW were not hand-me-downs though, so I don't see why a replacement fleet would necessarily be? I would be fairly confident about the long-term prospects of long haul at Gatwick, it was...

BKK has been a 3-class 777 for many years at Heathrow, leading to speculation its a fairly low yield route for them. Certainly the rate of op-ups from World Traveller Plus, the speed with which they...

Thatís true indeed. I think STN is omniserv from memory. The reasons FR and Jet2 give for taking more control over handling are fairly similar though - handling specialists could not give us the...

Interestingly its not just STN, Azur is at 25 Spanish airports and they also mention Poland as well. They have always self-handled at DUB too. Jet2 self-handle at LBA, MAN, EMA, STN, Murcia,...

If the freight has gone all the way to BOH, it does suggest that the usual suspects for freight are unable to accommodate either. If the flight had gone to EMA or STN the usual conspiracy could have...

Interesting point of view, actually. MAD is obviously an IAG hub and BER seems to be a strong point of sale for BA - the E-190s have been shuttled through on the way to STN/MAN/SOU over the years....
