Flywho's flights from BHX to SFB (twice weekly) and PIE (once weekly) are now on sale to start in July .... and their aircraft is a L1101-500 Tristar. Anyone know who the aircraft is coming from and also are these flights scheduled flights or charters?

I hope this finally comes off. It will be good news for BHX, SFB but especialy PIE.

Interesting. I think this is the first time BHX have officially acknowledged flywho, so maybe something is actually happening this time round?

Still no on-line booking though, and I have seen no advertisements for the new service. If they want full aircraft this summer they best start sorting that out soon!

Who's L1011 they using? They don't have an AOC, so it must be an ACMI charter? Not many operators left out there, weren't there a couple registered in Sierra Leone (Air Universal?) - although they can't operate to the UK so that rules them out. One of the Portugese operators maybe?

"Flywho will operate a 230 seat L1011-500 Tristar aircraft with a mixed cabin."

^That's the first sentence of the press release. READ! Big grin

Could be one of the Gee Bee Air/ Globejet ( http://www.globejetairlines.com/ ) birds, if it is really supposed to be an L1011.

I can't imagine putting my family on an L1011 today if it's not one being flown by ATA. I can't think of anyone else who I would trust to keep my family safe (other than, perhaps, one of the Saudi private VIP owners). Given how hard (and expensive) it is to keep these birds airworthy and competently crewed, there's something seriously unhinged about anyone who would include them in a new business plan involving passenger carriage. ATA has decades of experience working on these aircraft and I trust their remaining folks to do it right, but I have no confidence that this would be done by a startup carrier or one of the fly-by-night Third World carriers that currently fly them. It's an entirely different level of safety, and not worth any potential ticket price savings.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Sounds like they might share aircraft with Munich Airlines .... although they state 224 seats in their plane ..

Hmmm... interesting, perhaps FlyWho is really going to arrive...

Flight times in the BHX press release are a little confusing - looks like the the Saturday flight is shared between Sanford and Clearwater as departure/arrival times are identical to BHX (and also SFB/Clearwater). Suppose it could be two separate flights - if so, then two aircraft are required.

As far as operating carriers go...
Presuming it's an EC airline, then it could be GeeBee (who haven't started ops?), or BFS, or the current operator (Air Universal?) who are setting up a new Cypriot offshoot?
Which of the Portuguese airlines still have L.1011.500s?
Any USA airline that could operate these flights?

Finally... if we presume it's not a UK/USA airline, thenis it ok for non UK/USA carriers to operate (regular, non scheduled) flights to/from the UK to the USA?



I don't like signatures...

The only EU airlines still operating the L-1011 are Euroatlantic (CS-TEB), Luzair (CS-TMP) and White (CS-TMX). All of them are -500 series aircraft. As discussed in another thread, BFS never got their L-1011 registered in Austria and Gee Bee has never started L-1011 operations, they only operated Fokker 50s for some time. They all have 290-300 seat configurations though, so unless they are reconfigured that would not speak for these aircraft.

Well..as I think you probably know, ATA has 4 flying L1011-500s. That's it. However, unless there is a dramatic change in the military business, those aircraft are not sufficient to handle ATA's existing and profitable military charter business. Accordingly, they would not be candidates for this service.
