US Airways will introduce the A330 on MAN-PHL route from April next year. Gill Airways have retired the SH360 from their fllet so all ops now carried out by ATR42,ATR72 and F100 a/c. EI are stopping serving LBA,NCL and BRS. The LBA service will be taken over ny BRAL J41 4xDaily whilst the NCL and BRS services will be operated by Brymon. This is because EI are taking their F50s out of operation.AF have started a 1xDaily Lyon-MAN service using CRJs. Does anyone know anything else? Does anyone know about Augsburg Airways NCL-Hamburg service?

gkirk, peddling the BHX rumours is a bit misleading. They were also mentioning about the Air India start in November (which did not). I also hear that BHX may actually lose a PK flight when they start GLA.

The Augsburg NCL-HAM is dead. It never got above 35% loads. However, if the rumours are true, you may be getting a LH CRJ from DUS instead.

I also understand that the NCL-LGW is finally coming good because of the train situation on the east coast.

DL's BHX rumour did not emerge from the slot bids of last week.

BMA will be starting CDG-MAN, and BRU-MAN but where are the CDG slots coming from (watch out LBA).

GKirk are you sure about the extra PIA service to BHX via Copenhagen? I can't find any information about this! What I have heard is, that they might cut one of the two BHX flights from next summer.

That is where i got all the info from. I really hope that LH CRJ to NCL rumour is true. Gill used to operate that route, how were the loads on their flights? What a/c will BD use on the MAN routes?

Anyone have info on the ATH-MAN-BOS flights. The authority still stands, right? And it is just OA that has to organise itself before starting the flights?

BHX

yes its true PIA will add another service making 3 per week early in the new year. (this service is doing very very well)

Turkmenistan will become daily
and new flights to JFK/YYZ 3 times per week
(both when new a/c are delivered early 2001)

I am sure one of the american rumours will come though next year either Delta or another AA service

the CSA service should start end of March

the LH new services i believe have been confirmed

I think OA have set a start date of Feb or Mar for their ATH-MAN-BOS using A300. Currently they have 3xWeekly ATH-MAN B734 service.

The BOS service will not happen. The whole operation cannot be done with one crew (which the non-stop can). This makes the route uneconomical.

BD may be using the EM4 on the Euro-routes since the Fokkers are going.

Have not seen the Prague-BHX service in the advance slot filings for CSA.

Watch out for a new CO service to the UK next year.

Where do you find all the advance slot applications, you work at CAA or something? Do you have any idea where the CO service may be going, I know they are starting STN service, any chance it will be NCL?

A high-court ruling has given London's Biggin Hill Airport (famous for it's role in the Battle of Britain) the right to function as a passenger airport. At the momment Biggin Hill is only able to accept private flights, but this will change as it becomes London's sixth passenger airport.

So I guess this means that BOS will have to sit with the 2x weekly A340 flights. Bummer

Newcastle:

Braathens will discontinue Oslo-Newcastle flights as of 2 January. Newcastle-Stavanger will be increased from one to two daily flights. The morning service will be operated by a Norwegian Air Shuttle Fokker 50. The evening service will be flown by Braathens B737.

Do you think anyone will take over the NCL-Oslo route? Perhaps Brymon may have a look at it?

I don't know. Maybye smaller carriers like Brymon or Widerøe will consider to take over the route. I'm sure that they would be able to make money on the route because the use smaller aircrafts than Braathens. Braathens has serioius economical problems because the 737 is to big for many of their routes.

They should consider getting EMB145s or CRJ a/c then,to serve the smaller routes. Anyway I thought Oslo-NCL was doing quite well?

The load factor was OK, but there where probably too many passengers on economy class ("Back"). Stavanger is the oil capital of Norway and many people from the oil industry use the SVG-NCL route. They usually fly on business class, and that means higher incomes for Braathens.
