I doubt flyBe would be disastrous for SOU, at least they will get some passengers through the door. I doubt a serious attempts at an SOU base/focus city by easyJet or Ryanair would be scuppered by a...

The choices for LHR routes seems strange. AMS and BHD have plenty of competition from LHR and most of the other London airports too. LBA has been tried before and I can't see the long terms prospects...

I dont think they have any MAN routes at all. Not even BHD-MAN, which is one of their two crew bases.

Its about the choice Jet2 and TUI have made. Jet2 have their own ground and baggage staff at many UK airports (but not all, I don't think) and even at some European ports too. They handle Jet2 and...

If low loads and/or airport queues are a recurrent issue I guess LBIA and/or flyBe could work together to allow LHR passengers free fast-track access. LBA sell it for £3 with airport parking. I guess...

Yes things have changed. But other airports seem to manage this much better. Weíre not seeing social media posts with queues at the likes of Palma, Malaga or Barcelona, for example.

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...
