Just to revive this forum as it has been inactive for over 1500 days now.
Well, so far in 2012.
Easyjet new route to London Southend, already started.
Lufthansa new route to hamburg, begins 9 June
Lufthansa new route to Munich, begins 2 June
Also, could Jet2 take the EMA
route after bmibaby go?
ideal route for jet2 to take over as they already fly their from blackpool and LBA
Yeah thats what I was going to suggest. What plane does bmibaby use more often to JER
733 or 735? I'm sure its the 735. Would jet2 pick up their two 735's?
already fly the 733 so no need for the higher thrust model. They also use the Blackpool runway which isn't exactly massive.
A 735 would be an oddball in the fleet and the BMIBaby fleet is also all leased.
I didnt think they would. Are the lease rates extortionate too?
probably knowing the whole of British Midlands business running over the past few years
Yeah. Really sad to see them go. Hoping to fly EMA
at soem point to get on WW
before they go.
I think you'd best hurry up!
A ride on a 735 should be great if possible. I believe WW
do them with similar capacity to the 733 for fleet issues, but they have the more powerful CFMs from the 737-400 for performance routes like out of Denver in the summer (United had them)
!!!! MOTHER, BOOK THOSE FLIGHTS!!!!!
I flew from LGW
last year with Aerosvit on a 735 and have never been so scared in all my life. To say that the aircraft was showing its age is something of an understatement! Hopefully, the BMI
versions are in somewhat better nick!
I love old, noisy, smoky, smelly (jet fuel obviously, not farts) planes. Just something about knowing it wont last long.
