I was looking through ba.com and it seems that there are some changes to the BA Summer schedule for 2010. Highlights are :

- A 2nd daily flight to TIP departaing LHR late afternoon and returing the following morning.
- Extra 5 weekly flights to JNB are kept (19 weekly flights in total).
- The early EDI-LHR flight is kept for the Summer season so LON-EDI-LON is up 1 daily compared to last summer.
- LHR-TLS for the first time in Summer at 3 daily
- LHR-VCE is back while LHR-PSA is kept at 2 daily for the first time in Summer


All BMI code shares can not be booked at the moment. Does that mean that the cooperation is over?

Anyone having more info on the summer schedule?


Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

Last time I looked that flight stops and starts through 2010. It operates now for the Christmas rush, then stops for the quiet Feb period then picks up again for Easter.

One of the problems with it is that the times don't suit the people who will be using it; guys in the oil industry,who tend to arrive in Tripoli mid morning for departure back to London. Not sure who's going to be able to use it.

They should have put on a TIP-MAN flight instead.

The BA/BD codeshares are coming to an end early next year IIRC.

Is there that big demand between LON and TIP? I did not even notice that the 2nd daily flight is operating this winter and BA surely did not advertise this service at all. They haven't even said anything about the 3rd daily LHR-TLS flight.

It's certainly been growing since Libya opened itself back up. I went there back in 2002 when it was 3x weekly out of LGW, then it moved to LHR and subsequently went daily. The oil industry is clearly one of the obvious drivers - so there will be coach loads of ex-pat oil field workers coming off rotation in the desert periodically - and I believe there has been quite significant UK involvement in rebuilding the Libyan banking system. Aside from which, there are an increasing number of specialist tourism companies that promote Libya as a tourist destination.

What amazes me is that BA is not even sharing codes with RJ to AMM and beyond. They are OW partners and do nopt have a sinlge code shared flight. BA is to me the airline which shares codes the least with its partners. BA and JL are not even cooperating on the LON-TYO market. Now that JL is threatening to go to DL, BA is claiming that it will increase its cooperation with JL. It might be too late then. It is bug time BA started better cooperating with its partners.

They have not made a threat?
DL and Skyteam offered them a deal for help with financing, as have AA and its Oneworld partners, and others I think.

They would of course be very silly to not look at the deal. But would be stupid not to look at the Oneworld deal either, or any deal they get offered.

BA has a decent codeshare network. On internals in North and South American, in Japan, in Australia (A HBO MEL service comes to mind I had to deal with the other day) and in a lot of other places so I don't agree with your statement that BA is not cooperating with its partners. Just look at what it is wanting to do with AA and IB, I would call that cooperating?

Hardly surprising given the extra traffic South Africa will be receiving due to the World Cup.

Is IAD getting the 744 back on the BA216, as opposed to the 772?

Ah good. Always nice to see the magnificent 747 on the gate.
Do you mean BA264 for the 767 also?

Looks like SEA is getting daily 744 as well as a 777 6x weekly on the summer schedule. Good thing BA continues to send the 747 to SEA, as it's the only pax 747 serving Seattle now a days.

Don't forget the 1x daily to PHX. BA288 and BA289 will still be operated with the 744 during the summer.

N864DA


25 DIJKKIJK : Ain't that shocking? It's happening probably for the first time in BA's history. Which a/c? A320 I assume?
26 N864DA : Just remembered that BA288/289 actually operate 6x weekly with no service on Wednesdays. N864DA
27 LHRjc : You assume correctly!
28 LY7E7 : Will TLV get the 772 back? (Last summer 1x763 + 1x772, currently 2x763) Thx
29 AIR MALTA : At the moment, a 777 and 763 are planned for Tel Aviv for Summer 2010.
30 AIR MALTA : More updates : - A 2nd weekly LGW-St.Kitts via Antigua on Tuesday with a 772. - A 2nd weekly LGW-Grenada with a 772.
31 Gayrugbyman : LHR-LIS back to 4x daily too for next summer.
32 BFS : Is that a non-stop? I've heard that BGI is going to be used once again as a transit stop for some shuttle services, but I've no idea which.
33 Sam1987 : No, there isn't that much demand to be honest - it sounds like a slot warmer to me. BA have got extra slots at LHR as part of the BMED deal. There is
34 Mhodgson : surely there must be some demand; else BA would be flying the aircraft to Cardiff or Manchester and parking it for a couple of hours rather than oper

43 Richardw : GB Airways code was GT, not GB, can we avoid confusion please. I suspect PFO is going out of fashion for BA's cutomers. I think DBV was about 10 x wee
44 HeeBeeGB : The yield must not be very good on PFO because it is either full or almost full everyday for the entire summer season, apparently, especially in club.
45 Babybus : True there is virtually no demand for LHR-TIP except at really peak times like Christmas and Easter with tourist traffic. Slot warmer? I'm not sure o
46 Sam1987 : I don't think it is - just BA don't have enough aircraft at LGW in the summer to operate such a long route daily. Very surprised they have taken out
47 AIR MALTA : Well if BA is going to retreat from each route it competes in with U2 or EI, well they should close all the LGW operation. At some point BA has to co
