Looks like AeroSvit has been delaying flights in order to make sure all the luggage makes it on board!  Smile

Looks like BMI should drop their 'Most Punctual Airline At Heathrow' promo to ensure those bag's get loaded, never realised they were worse than BA!

My experience with bmi:
In August I was flying DUB-LHR. The flight was delayed for 45 min, but the flight itself was very nice (very comfortable leather seating). But when arriving at Heathrow and waiting at the baggage claim, nothing happened (the conveyor belt was moving, the flight indicated on the screen, but there was no luggage). After another 45 min, it was announced that all the luggage had arrived at the gate only after the flight had already been closed and would be sent with the next plane... Well, after that it was only further 15 min to get my suitcase. But I quite enjoyed the waiting time, though, as I had plain view on the landing aircrafts!

Aerosvit doesn't surprise me. With a fleet of only 3 763s and JFK's bad delays this summer; it's easy to see how the delays could stack up.

What now?

FR isn't a member of the AEA, generally LCC's aren't members of the group. It would be interesting to see the figures for FR though! The numbers for missing luggage should be pretty low, considering all the routes are point to point.

In a recent press release BA claimed that most of their delayed bags were delayed because of late delivery to them by other airlines from connecting flights. They said:

"The big majority of delayed bags continue to be transfer bags, which are not delivered on time by other carriers from other terminals at Heathrow in time to meet their onward flights."

If this is true then it might not only explain BA's position of 25th in the lost bags table but also BD's position at the bottom of the table. Whether this is due to overcrowding at LHR resulting in aircraft arriving late after stacking before finals or to the BAA LHR infrastructure is not clear.

The full Press Release, "Punctuality gets better every month", can be found at:

True, and aren't many of their flight pretty much on time or early?

Seems pointless to me to publish figures for only a select number of Airlines. Without the whole European Airline Industry assessed for Best and Worst, the information is surely somewhat incomplete.

Air France being ranked 24th, this would tend to prove that CDG's reputation for loosing luggage is not very accurate .... in any case, it shows that CDG is not worse (and even better) than LHR and AMS !
