Does any know if the BMI Baby to Palma from Manchester is full yet. I know its still4 days to go but Im quite a nervous passenger and this will be my first flight without family. I will be travelling with mates so i will have to look brave but it still doesnt stop the normal worry. If it isnt so full then i will be a bit more relaxed. Anyway know what BMI Baby is like to fly on, seat wise, are they nice inside i.e not cramped etc..
Thanks for anyones responses.

Seriously, I hate to dissapoint but my experience of BMIbaby is they are amnst the worst of the LCCs. The cabins of their tired old 737s are dirty, the cabin crew wear manky t-shirts which look like they have been washed on a high temp and turned grey and the on board drink/snack menu is both overpriced and unappetizing.

Im sure you and the lads will have a good time once you are there though. I reckon a few of your mates will be scared too but not show it.

God your like a broken record.

What Orion says is generally, IMHO, bollocks. WW do fly older aircraft, and the cabins reflect that, but I would not say they are dirty. They are a bit dim inside admittedly.

Also, the service from the 'tiny crew' is normally fine. They are cheery, the flight deck refer to the flights as 'babyflight' and its very informal and relaxed.
Inflight services are on a par with the rest of the LCC's and priced accordingly.

Don't take any notice of Orion's usual whinging, Bmibaby are fine, and their drinks and snacks are just as overpriced as Ryanair's. The crew do not wear manky t-shirts, at least not on any of the Bmibaby flights I have travelled on, they all wore blouses or shirts.

Britannia191a.

Despite many of us on here moaning a lot about BMI/BMI baby for what we think are strange decisions regarding much of their business decisions, the important thing for you as a nervous passenger is that, whether or not the interior is cosmetically tatty, cramped or whatever, the airline is a professional operation run under strict safety standards. BMI baby will be no less in this respect than mainline BMI, so you have really no reason to worry about flying with them.

Enjoy your trip  Smile

Going back to your original question... Is the flight booked up?

I have looked at the website and there is more than 20 seats for the flight still on sale. So... NO the flight is not booked up yet.

BMI Baby are just fine.

They'll get you there puncually like any other low cost carrier and legroom is 29-30inch seat pitch.

Probably worth while eating before the flight, for example go to McD's or BK, as is better an paying £3-4 for a plastic sandwich. BMI Baby's onboard catering is no worst than any of the other LCC pricewise but is still a rip-off. Hence why we all have a choice!

On a slightly different note...
There seems to be a hate campain for Orion737 at the moment... What has he done wrong? Other than commenting on his dislike for BMI Baby which everyone is entitled to an opinion! Keep smiling!

I've flown bmibaby a couple of times. The first time in Jan 2004, the crew wore those scruffy t-shirts which Orion mentioned, but when I flew them again recently (Aug 2005) these seem to have been replaced by a smarter, more professional looking uniform.

They are absolutely fine to fly with. As mentioned, some of the interiors are perhaps a little tired but I've seen far worse on some other LCC's who shall remain nameless! Food, including hot sandwiches can be purchased on-board at prices comparable with a BK or McD from the airport. Given the choice, I prefer to give my money to the airline and it's suppliers rather than some corporate monster that serves crap.

Hope you enjoy your flights, WW are very safe so no need to worry.

They will because you appear to be suggesting deletion to every post you deem in any way offensive. I know this because I, and others, have cofnirmed that they are receiving Post deletion notices from the mods.

Perhaps as has been said before, some self reflection would assist you Orion. Until then, put forward valid arguments, not blinkered anti-modernisation drivel, and you might find yourself less so.

Yes - yet he can slag off all businessmen - his reason for this is NOT valid to tar us with the same brush - and doesn't like it when people take offense.

Nobody would mind if he was offering up some valid, sensible, analytical logic that would benefit the forum in general. Instead we get worthless drivel like:

a.) I hate this airline because i have to pay for a cuppa.

b.) All businessmen are fat and corrupt and milk the company and leave the poor emplyees starving and penniless.

c.) All low cost airlines are bad

d.) I hate Tui for no particular reason.

e.) I hate DSA because its not LBA and Tui have made a LCC base there.

For once come back with some logical, worthwhile valued opinions based on some real knowledge rather than just something you sit and think up while wanking into a sock in your bedroom.

I am heartily fed up of all the bickering and back-biting. I may be partly to blame but I am certainly not alone.

This forum provides a facility for differing opinions and viewpoints on aviation. It seems that anyone offering an opposing view to the 'cliques' that are always hovering waiting to make some unkind remark or some criticism are disrupting the forum.

I always though I would not allow myself to be pushed out by those who wish to see the back of me. They may not share my views but I cannot understand why they cannot respect my right to my opinion.

Absolutely correct. But at least try and take on board some of the views and experience of people who actually work in the industry.

I keep telling myelf not to get drawn into some of these pathetic debates but still i do.

Maybe its my fault - I had hoped that the type of discussions on here in civil aviation could be between people who can discuss issues to a reasonable level of interest and intelligence for somebody who's an industry professional, and that perhaps i could learn something and maybe help other enthusiasts learn too. But when the arguments and posts are about people who's main objection to an airline changing its business focus is the price of a cuppa or whatever then I guess i'm in the wrong place, if they can't follow a reasoned argument from people who know the industry.

maybe i should give up posting on here - lets hope the new job keep me busy enough not to need an A.net fix.

I held out from this as long as I can but I'm going to post now. Orion, if your reading, I wouldn't say there is a campaign against you. Yes members on this board are very vocal in their disagreement with you an awful lot of the time, but I wouldn't say its a campaign.

This is the way I see it. You are fan of the charter airlines of the 1980's. This is because you have very fond memories of some of your first holidays flying with such carriers (like many on this board). No wonder you like them so much - no problem with that at all. You also feel that airlines now just aren't as good as they were back then - again no problem with that, its your opinion and you are entitled to that!

However, you constantly over and over post about how todays airlines are so awful. Too many times there have been topics about charter airines or LCC's, where yet again you have replied about how bad you think they are. A lot of the time your replies aren't even relevant to the subject of the topic, just a chance to shout even more about those hot towels.

Time after time members here have given excellent and structured answers as to why the industry have gone this way and why it isn't all free on charter airlines anymore. But again we still hear it. I see topics posted and can immediately predict that the thraed will be hijacked with another rant - and you don't dissapoint. To be honest I find this tiring, very tiring. Most of the time I don't reply to it, but sometimes I do. Too many times a good thread is just turned into a whingeing session.

That doesn't mean I don't like you. That doesn't mean theres a campaign against you. Perhaps people are tiring of the same old same old. I wouldn't say anyone here is vindictive towards you. To be honest it would be a sad day the day you stopped posting here - its a good laugh. But please, less of the repetition about no hot towels or tea. Its boring!

Joking aside, your entitled to an opinion. Everyone is, of course. But JMC757 has summed it all up. (pretty damn well I must say) It is not Orions opinions which are the problem - many of us agree to an extent. It's his inability to accept logic which frustrates many. Sure, there are a few of us who react to the incessant and repetative muesli he comes out with, but there is, I'm confident, equally as many who sit back and ignore.

My personality does not allow me to sit back.

Unfortunately, thats all Orion's personality allows him to do. Pretty much every single one of us work or study so that we'll all be able to live comfortably. Be that now, or in our future lives. The majority of us work in the industry, allowing an array of knowledge and opinions you'd never get in any boardroom or debate auditorium. We transfer this knowledge into these forums so that we can all learn. I learn SO much in here you'd be amazed. To learn you have to be open and receptive to the comments posted. Frankly, Orion is not. And this is where, IMHO, these arguments surface.

The seat pitch is good too!! Our prices are no more expensive than any other L/C, or even charter for that matter. (give or take the odd 10p)
People who constantly slate Baby really P**s me off! Yes there are a few strange decisions made, but we are still a good airline. Us 'Scruffy F/A's' actually enjoy flying for Baby.

BRITANNIA191A - Enjoy your flight with us, hope you enjoy and take no notice of certain comments on here!!!

Living near East Midlands I have had the pleasure of flying with BMI Baby on many occasions. I have flown on several of their 300's and 500's and all have been excellent. The seats are fine and the interiors are basically good for a low cost airline. The crew are always friendly especially condsidering the hours they work at times. Certainly beat the competition at EMA hands down in my opinion. They wear t-shirts??? And????????? What is wrong with that? It's a more modern and stylish look. I like it.  cheerful

Just for info, a number of WW's -300's are actaully ex U2 anyway. So there we go, everyone should be happy now! It's like anything really, as something gets older it gets a little but tatty. It's much easier and much less costly to buy a new pair of shoes however than it is to refit the entire cabin of the a/c. So it's a but shabby, does it really matter? It wouldn't be in the sky if it wasn't airworthy at the end of the day!

I think BMIbaby could do with putting their 735s through the carwash, they are filthy and then when they have cleaned them on the outside, they want get some shake n vac, a vacum cleaner and some Cif and go clean the interior and then if they must insist on their cabin staff wearing t-shirts can they not give them a smarter polo shirt or at least a t-shirt that is white and looks clean, instead of one that loooks like it hasnt seen biological washing powder and has gone a murky dirty white colour.

I just dont know enough technical terminology to argue this definitively, but come on man. Aircraft are often flown to maintenance bases with defects or damage. This does not mean they are not airworthy. I bet it's safe to assume that most flights take off with some defect or another. And those with defects deemed in any way serious do not carry passengers.

Could you, I'd be interested to hear how you feel you'd be qualified to make such a statement!
Go on, tell me....I'm intrigued.....

Airworthy does not in any way mean that an aircarft will not depart without any defects. As long as those defects (which are catergorised in order of significance/urgency of repair/importance to operating carrier etc) are within "operating limits" then the aircraft will be signed off as good for service by a suitable qualified aircraft maintenance technician.

If at the end of the day, the PIC is still not happy with the serviceability of a prticular aircraft, he will refuse to fly it, simple as that.

If it's in the air, it's airworthy as verified by the highly qualified individuals who got it up in the air in the first place.

Very few. You have to remember that a crash is not favourable for the airline either. Think of all the paperwork   

I believe that there was more to that Pilots sacking than just the fact that he refused to fly the aircraft. Quite often you don't get told the full story.

All of these incidents you refer to have happened after take-off while the a/c have been in flight. If PIC and Maintenance are satisfied prior to departure that the a/c is serviceable, then by definition they are airworthy. Even after such an incident as you have posted in the photo above (which has already done the rounds many times before) whereby the engine cowling came off in flight, it does not automatically render the a/c any less airworthy.

You seem to like this word "airworthy", and so I'l refer you to the Oxford English Dictionary which defines the word airworthy as simply "safe to fly".

No that was not what you said. You said that the aircraft was not airworthy. Totally different. It was when it took off, just like a car is perfectly fine after passing the MOT, but then 15minutes later develops a fault. It is still safe to fly (or in my example, drive).

Quoting BMIbaby733 (Reply 69):

I can only assume that you knew the aircraft was un-airworthy (after all you are obviously qualified to make such comments and have vast knowledge). Theres a difference between knowing that operating aircraft are not airworthy and reading about a crash and saying "that wasn't airworthy".

Oh and the AirTran A320 example. Although that pic is very dramatic, the aircraft is still very airworthy. It was airworthy when it took off, and airworthy for the rest of the flight, it made a normal landing. The damage was cosmetic and although you wouldn't send it up like that, the aircraft was still perfectly capable of flying and landing safely.

It was definately BMI Baby.

I remember looking at the safety card and thinking "oh, an A320. Haven't been in one before".

That baby logo will haunt me for the rest of my life. I spent half of the flight trying to stop some 12 year old kid in front of me reclining his seat with my knees.

It could be that bmi did operate the flight for WW. It's rare but has happened a few times if baby are in the sh*t! Was the aircraft in bmiBaby livery or bmi (blue or white?!)

Yes this has happened a few times this past summer, i've seen a few BD 320s parked on b pier at MAN this summer whilst dealing with delays airside! So it was quite likely that BD was operating for WW whilst one of there a/c was down, remember when g-odsk had a "prang" with excel's 762 g-satr?!

Yeah, but this doesn't add up. Would BMI mainline have A320 safety cards with Baby logo's on them?
