If the airport has any sense they will look for a new operator in the longer term but in the short term Logan would be in a position to get it running very quickly. Not sure who the bigger players...

Logan is owned by the same bunch that own Flybmi. What a remarkable coincidence. Theyíre already Ďlookingí crew for LDY. The real losers are the Flybmi advance bookers who will pay twice for the same...

Flybmi are in bad shape. They have over-promised and underdelivered in many areas across their network. Without fundamental change, their future is limited and not bright.

The £1 thing isn’t about the cost, it’s about the impression it sets of being ‘nickel and dimed’ in much the same manner as the loco’s have done in the past with hidden charges. It doesn’t happen at...

Iíve been through BFS security several times recently with no issues or much waiting.
I agree that the drop off is pathetic though. I donít pay money to drop people off at LHR or LGW. Itís rubbish...

Fast track is cheaper purchased at the airport rather than online (there be logic in there somewhere). The machine in the check in hall doesn't seem to take new £1 coins though.

A320 I was talking about this year. Shoulder season forward bookings are poor. But I'll now bow to your superior knowledge of historical spreadsheets.
Some people need to get out more :rolleyes:

You can make statistics say anything you want but in reality an A330 is far cheaper to operate than a 744, cabins can be easily retrofitted and will be as the old fleet retires, a 78% LF based on a...

When United operated the EWR is was cheap enough. Usually on a par with Dub prices. The Biz class was regularly busy although hard to know if they were upgrades or not. The dearest I paid was £750 to...

The trouble with CODA is that it requires outside-the-box strategy to survive. Instead it is run like a Council project. Councils and airports are uneasy bedfellows. I'd bet my shirt that all the...

At £9.99 you are sustaining nothing. You are simply burning cash in the hope that your opponent blinks first. The ultimate prize being to knock them off the route at which point you can charge what...

Seconddog is spot on. We got a bum steer up here from the Irish Tourist Board who were happy to pretend BFS never had a direct connection. I got that from some of the United staff before it was...

SNN used to be covered by an A330. The loads weren’t bad either.
It’s likely that Ryanair are prodding for weak points in the Easyjet network. I don’t personally believe that MAN can sustain 3...

I’m not seeing how Easyjet would be ‘in trouble’ if Ryanair did MAN 3 times a day. That’s not how LGW played out is it? Easyjet naturally have more interest in LGW than they do in MAN but I can’t see...

Easyjet have already announced 3 new routes.
Ryanair chose to take Easyjet on in BFS and got a bloody nose on the LGW route. The public got a few cheap fares while they battled it out but ultimately...

I've taken the opportunity of changing never to 'seldom' to satisfy the pedantic.

Since EI and BFS had their huge fall-out, EI seldom divert there. You'll often see Cityjet and the Ryan's but not EI. Passenger convenience is trumped by politics.
As for LDY.. it's not a realistic...

Within the bucket of hair-brained ideas, BHD-Carlisle must surely reside near the bottom..especially on a 50 seater.
