BA/BD will stop flying into Dakar effective 1 may 2008.
Any reasons why? Low factors?
Is Freetown affected? Flights to FNA are routed via DKR i believe
PAX will now have to transfer via BRU ( for those holding BD/BA tickets)


Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

Isn't Freetown going direct with a B757-200? I'm sure I read this in a previous bmi thread.

BD has wet leased two Astraeus 757s in order to operate LGW-FNA non-stop I think.

The A321s were not able to reach FNA non-stop, but correct if I'm wrong  

From a BA/BMED/BMI point of view, I'm sure DKR was only more technical than commercial.

IIRC the BA codeshare terminates on these dates. I dont think BD are dropping it completely?

Something that really puzzles me is how BA handle these situations.

BMI cease flying to a former BMED destination and they reoute BA codeshared passengers through BRU and onto SN to DKR.

But GB airways, a current franchise partner, is bought by easyjet and then "it's up to you".

Do you really think BA was going to codeshare with a low cost airline?!?!? That is why there is the difference in how BA has handled it.

Low costs don't work like that, they usually have no other affiliations with other airlines. So even if BA wanted to codeshare with Easyjet, Easyjet probably wouldn't let them.

I think a lot of why they are leaving Dakar is to do with the 757 that will be running non stop to FNA. Dakar was often full so it was also a commercial stop, although on some occasions the A321 couldn't even make it all the way there non stop from LHR. There is more than one occasion where the aircraft has had to route through Spain!
