News from BBC reporting WW are scaling back routes at BHX due to reduced demand for city breaks. Bad news for the staff based at BHX and EMA as it seems.... sorry to hear that.

I have their credit card and get a "free" flight if I bill over £3K PA.

I had been planning to go to Lisbon next year, (seems to knock that on the head).

In fact, it may be time to move, given that I am not looking for a bucket and spade destination.

WW are cutting routes left, right, and centre... they say it's due to low demand for cities, yet their only new service from CWL is (supposed to be) Lisbon! So they're contradicting themselves slightly?

I can't see the baby lasting to the end of next summer if I'm being honest!  Sad

Waiting (im)patiently for Jan to see what LH do have in store for bmi. Something huge? Status Quo? Still interests me that with less than 50% shares in SN and the ink hardly dry on the paper following OS that there is an easy stream of credible - if even quoted - plans being made for them but they stay stumm on BD  ziplip

maybe ZK is referring to this from Reuters last week

* CFO says sale of bmibaby is an option

* No decision yet on whether to sell bmi slots -CFO

* Situation at Alitalia is "intransparent" -CFO

(Adds CFO comments, details, background)

FRANKFURT/NEW DELHI, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Deutsche Lufthansa would consider selling bmi's low-cost carrier, bmibaby, after it takes over a majority stake of the company early next year, Chief Financial Officer Stephan Gemkow said on Wednesday.

"The UK low-cost carrier's sale is an option that is on the table. It is not part of Lufthansa's core business," he told Reuters in an interview on the sidelines of a trip to India with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

I flew into BHX at about 1620 on Saturday 29th November and was surprised to see 5 WW aircraft sat around doing nothing - no stairs connected, lights out in total darkness; is that something to do with the time of day or a fall in demand?
