ps. I'm really starting to like the new colours (no...stop laughing)!
Although at first I hated them so much I actually e-mailed BD with my disgust, I now think they look very modern, proffesional and British! I can't wait to see them on the Fokker 100s, and ofcourse the A330s.

Is Washinton theire only route at the moment? I have been looking at there fares on the net and they ain't cheap! And it's not like their isn't a lot of other airlines flying these routes. They will need to sort that out if they wanna stay in the air.

BD will be the ONLY airline flying between MAN and IAD.
On the MAN-ORD route they will be competing with AA.
Englandair, Check out BDs website, www.britishmidland.com or something like that. Im sure it says something there. I do remember though that Y seating will have about 33 inches of legroom.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

ok, BMI has got 4 four 332s on order, one is going on lease to SAS for their CPH-IAD service, and the two others will serve MAN-IAD and MAN-ORD.
do they have any further plans of introducing more flights from MAN to somewhere else in the states?
i don´t think they´ll collect all their 332s in MAN before they´ve got thinks working out at LHR.
anyone has a clue?
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

Ref the SAS lease: I will confirm with a very good contact, but I believe that its until Scando get settled with their own Airbus wide bodies... About a year if I remember correctly. As I say, I'll check.
The 4th bmi A330 is a way off - there's three initially, of which one goes to Scando in Star colors, and the other two are for the MAN-ORD and MAN-IAD service. I hope that they don't get a serious tech with only two aircraft!!!
Ref one of the other questions: The aircraft were allocated G-WWBD, G-WWBM and G-WWB? (can't remember the last and not at home to check).
