Any idea where this is coming from?

The caribbean Investor, 19 January, 2004
BWIA adds an Airbus A-340 to UK route.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Caribbean INVESTOR

BWIA has signed an agreement for the lease of a second A340-300. The aircraft will be added to BWIA’s fleet in mid-February 2004 and will be deployed on the carrier’s routes from Heathrow and Manchester to the Caribbean. The new aircraft is two-class, with a capacity of 40 in business/first and 215 in economy.

The Manchester route is currently serviced through sub-leases, and the acquisition of the new aircraft will enable BWIA to return to a full in-house operation on its transatlantic services. The transatlantic schedule is currently a daily operation from Heathrow to Port of Spain in Trinidad, three times weekly to Barbados, twice weekly to Antigua and twice weekly to St. Lucia. The Manchester service operates weekly to Barbados and Trinidad.

A review is being carried out of possible new destinations for the deployment of the extra capacity.

Heh heh So typically wise of them. Get extra capacity ... then have a review: what to do with it. Stll, I guess its better than bleeding off of sub-leases. They should invest in ETOPS and get a pair of 330-200s.
