Other possibilities are : MUC, ROM, STO or HEL...

DUB , AMS , JER.......  Wink

Any expansion however requires an increase in stand capacity, as by its very nature LCY ops peak am and early pm when its pretty much maxed out at the min.

Quoting BAOPS777 (Thread starter):

I do not think so.

In late March Cityflyer returned RJ100 G-BXAR to the lessor (BAE Systems Regional Aircraft) in the expectation of leasing two ex Mesaba / Northwest RJ85s that are parked up in the USA. G-BXAS was slated to follow it. However the conversion costs to bring the two Northwest aircraft up to European requirements proved to be too high. So 'AR that had already been ferried to NWI by BAE to be painted white by Sprayavia was repainted with 'BRITISH AIRWAYS' titles and their Speedmarque and leased back by Cityflyer who returned it to service:

So you can be pretty sure that when OY-SAH and 'AI are delivered and put into service G-BXAR and 'AS will be returned to the lessor. Effectively the Cityflyer fleet will, in passenger carrying terms, be a little smaller.

Can anyone tell us whether the titles were reapplied to 'AR while it was at its original visit to NWI between 1 and 11 April or at a later date?
