British Airways - Calgary Service?

I have heard the flight is doing quite well with loads around 90% (This was through word of mouth, maybe someone can confirm what the actual number is). Is there any idea of timing for when to expect daily service year round?

Since they pulled DTW would this free up aircraft to make this a daily service?

Cheers

Not sure if there are plans for the service to go daily.

The passenger profile on this flight is not what I really would have expected. The first time I operated it I expected a lot of skiers and oil workers. Not so. Transit passengers from India on this route are the biggest group. I have operated the calgary route three times and I would say on average around 75% of the passengers are originating from or continung to BOM/DEL/CCU/MAA/BLR.

Indeed I can agree with the above. I operated this flight at the height of the ski season and it was mainly connections from India. There were indeed groups of skiiers etc but not as many as I would have expected. As far as I know there are no plans to go daily, both outbound and inbound on the days I flew were good loads but I think there are other routes with a higher priority when it comes to increasing frequencies.

If they were aiming to bring over business traffic from AC, wouldn't they first have to go daily. Or do they not really care about attracting customers from AC?

It is not only for the summer - it is indefinite.

Many of the flights will be going to a 3 class service though. Although it looks as if this is only a short term move, possibly while the 4 class aircraft are upgraded with the new Club World and AVOD.
