Wow - good old BMI. I'm not sure of the frequency, but the flight operates Sundays, landing back UK Monday am. I'm a travel agent, so found this out today. Really peeved though - I'm booked to LAS via IAD, but never mind - I'll know next time. Building up a small portfolio of transatlantic flights now, aren't they? I wish them well!

Sunday: BD751 MAN (T1) to LAS 0935/1255 332
Sunday: BD752 LAS to MAN (T1) 1515/0920* 332 *Next day arrival

The BMI service is three times weekly - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, commencing 31st October 2004.

Have they got enough A330's to serve this route, or will the Chicago/Washington services suffer as a result?

The YYZ service is supposed to go back to Air Canada this autumn which would free up an aircraft. However BMI are also launching 3 Carribean destinations from MAN this autumn too so I'm not sure what size fleet is required. There was talk on an earlier thread about BMI taking delivery of an A340 but personally I'm not convinced as an A332 would have sufficient range for all these routes so why complicate your fleet?

There aren't exactly a lot of A330s of any flavour on the market at the moment! An A340 has been suggested as there is one in particular that BD could pick up on a short term lease.

Presumably the fourth A332 would then be firmed up with Airbus.

The bmi long-haul program fits onto 3 aircraft, just, as they have altered the Caribbean network to allow space for the Las Vegas flight. Their website lists the revised schedule.

The YYZ service ends on October 29, with no replacement Air Canada services loaded for the winter at this time.

bmi's long-haul winter schedule is as follows;

Washington (IAD) Daily ex TUE
Chicago (ORD) Daily
Las Vegas (LAS) TUE/THU/SUN from 31 October
St Lucia (UVF) MON from December 13
Antigua (ANU) SAT from November 27
Barbados (BGI) WED/FRI from November 26

Presumably bmi plan to get the bluk of their winter maintenance requirements complete during November! I'd also guess none of the A330s would be due for major checks this winter...

Thanks for clearing that up Crosswind, nice pictures, I am a regular visitor to the Aviation viewing park at MAN. I do like the BMI livery with the red flashes on the winglets and the powerplants (does that make me sound like a girl)

Is BMI in any alliance. I will probably go to the UK next year and would like to give it a try, but I live in Colorado. So any alliance BMI has to make my fare cheap?


ROLL TIDE!!!

BMI is part of the Star Alliance and reason why they fly to Chicago and Washington is because this is where United's Hubs are and offer connections to the rest of the US.

The flights to the US from MAN are code shared by United, but you will get a far better service than what United offer on their Transatlantc flights.
