Hello,

Well, it’s been an interesting summer for us, operations came to a halt at the end of June and our planes were slowly flown up to Newcastle and other airports around the UK and Europe to be parked and taped up. There were a few days when I really didn’t think they would ever fly again but that is long put behind us as we move on to the new Air Lambert!

So what’s changed? The airline has become a more mature and professional organisation but we are still going to spice things up a bit, we wouldn’t be us if we didn’t Wink! The following tells of the changes for the future:

New Website

The New website design is now complete and we are in the final stages of creating the brand spanking new CMS system which will enable efficiency rarely seen before and a smooth experience for our pilots they had only previously dreamt of with up to date data information and maps at their fingertips.

UK/USA Ops Merge in the New Air Lambert

After much analysis we have taken the decision to bring the two operations together. They will no longer have separate websites and plans for ‘USA’ titles have been scrapped. There will also be significant changes within the fleets of the UK/USA bases, please see the following;

San Francisco goes purely short/medium haul as 777’s leave for the UK

The USA operation will see a shift as fleet numbers grow but with the focus on short and medium haul only. The Boeing 777’s previously in the fleet and on order have been moved over to the UK leaving the B73G/8 and B752(W). San Francisco will continue to be our American hub. The timetables and routes have completely changed and will allow for a smoother and more professional network. We will operate 8 Boeing 737-700 and 6 Boeing 737-800 aircraft to the following destinations from San Francisco (SFO):

Albuquerque (ABQ) daily 73G
Boise (BOI) daily 73G
Burbank (BUR) x2 daily 73G & daily 738
Denver (DEN) x2 daily 73G & daily 738
Honolulu (HNL) daily 738 (in addition to daily 752)
Las Vegas (LAS) x3 daily 73G
Los Angeles (LAX) daily 73G & 3x daily 738
Maui (OGG) daily 738
Ontario (ONT) x2 daily 73G & daily 738
Orange County (SNA) x3 daily 73G
Phoenix (PHX) x2 daily 73G & x2 daily 738
Portland (PDX) daily 73G & daily 738
Reno/Tahoe (RNO) x2 daily 738
Salt Lake City (SLC) x2 daily 73G
San Diego (SAN) x3 daily 73G & daily 738
Seattle (SEA) x4 daily 738
Tucson (TUS) daily 73G

We will operate 8 Boeing 757-200 aircraft to the following destinations from San Francisco (SFO):

Baltimore/Washington (BWI) x3 daily
Boston Logan Intl. (BOS) x3 daily
Honolulu (HNL) daily (in addition to daily 738)
New York (JFK/EWR) x4 daily

The Boeing 737’s will be configured in a standard US Elite/US Voyager layout whilst the 757’s will have a premium configuration of US Elite/US Voyager+/US Voyager. The cabin service will also change to bring our product more in line with the current US market. Please see the next news release for information.

Manchester is downsized and UK longhaul operations change for the better

On the UK side of the pond there are a few changes within the New Air Lambert too. Manchester has been severely downsized after the struggle we went through before against the growing presence of Low Cost Carriers at the airport. We are currently in discussions of closing the base from the Summer 07 season.

Shorthaul operations at other bases will see expansion, particularly at London Gatwick, routes were announced before our temporary closure. Meanwhile our longhaul will be bustling with new routes and aircraft once we take to the skies again, the result of the UK/USA fleets partial merger. The new A330-200’s and all A330-300’s on order have been cancelled and the Boeing 747-200 has been retired from service. This leaves the Boeing 757-200 (ex EDI/MAN), A330-200 (ex LGW), B777-200ER (ex LGW), and B777-300ER (ex LGW/MAN). The following is a low-down of the plans (first pictures of the 773ER can be found later in the post):

ex Edinburgh:

Boston Logan Intl. (B752, NEW ROUTE)

ex London Gatwick:

Bridgetown (B772ER, UPGRADE from A332)
Cape Town (B772ER, NEW ROUTE)
Chicago (A332)
Dubai (A332, NEW ROUTE)
Hong Kong (B773ER, UPGRADE from A332)
Johannesburg (B773ER, NEW ROUTE)
Miami (B772ER, NEW ROUTE)
Orlando (B773ER)
San Francisco (B772ER)
Toronto (A332)

Hey James, never realised and wanted to get back to you as quick as possible. The whole system will be very different at the New Air Lambert as those who have seen the 'lounge complex' shots will know. Hours wont count solely either anymore, all will be revealed on the next release. We're completely overhauling all pilots facilities and systems and putting them #1 this time, a lot will change. As for the models, on the new site there will be an area with suggestions like that,

Thanks,

Sam Smile

Looking really good Sam. It will be good to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully exciting news like this generates interest from more potential pilots.
