Hi all,

Is there already a confirmed date when the BD F100's will be withdrawn from use?

This summer I have the choice between BA A319 + A320 and BD A320 + F100 for a roundtrip BRU-LHR, and would take BD for the F100.

Thanks
Frederic

Currently the A319, A320 and F100 are in the system for this summer.

Of course, the equipment for this summer can still change, and that's why I would like to know when they go.

There are still quite a lot of flights assigned to the F100, even with A319 deliveries starting before next summer.
It's choosing besides a small chance to be on a BA A320-100, and a small chance to be on a BD F100!  Laugh out loud

I thought all of BD's LHR-BRU flights were on F100s?

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.


Good post Frederic Big grin

bmi will start phasing out the F100s towards the end of 2004.

Depending on how quickly the A319s are introduced, and the amount of expansion undertaken during that timeframe, the F100s will probably be around until the end of the summer 2005 schedule.

The F100s are Heathrow based, the ERJs are operated by bmi regional - a subsidiary based in Aberdeen. The only times you'll find the ERJs at LHR are on off peak LBA-LHR and MAN-LHR services which wouldn't otherwise operate.

I believe bmi would have liked to order EMB-190s to be operated by bmi regional to replace the F100s, but pilot contracts prevented them doing that.

There was a scuffle a couple of years back when bmi regional were operating MAN-BRU flights with BAE146s after the demise of Sabena. bmi mainline pilots objected to the operation of an F100-sized aircraft by regional pilots on bmi routes. The route didn't last long due to these issues - when SNBA was formed there was overcapacity, and the route would not have been viable with bmi mainline's cost base. The BAE146s had perviously only operated on behalf of Lufthansa.
