That bit is certainly true and why they bought the TCX slots at BHX and MAN. At BHX there is still capacity to be filled on Med routes (and plenty of terminal capacity) after the demise of Monarch in...

Or they could open a base and originate the flight in BHX....and pigs might fly! 😁

One thing for sure, a wise move by EZY to enter the Scotland- BHX market as the future of the Flybe/Virgin...

QR A350

Totally agree, the QR A350 a much nicer plane to fly on as pax, with better legroom and space in Economy. QR 787's can best be described as cosy....would be some much needed positive news for BHX if...

Why wouldn't EZY not have a growing love for BHX? I'm still sceptical of a BHX base but if you take a look, the majority of BE year round routes from BHX are to established EZY bases or destinations...
