Hi everyone,

BACF appear to be doing plenty of charter work this summer. However, for a project I'm looking for information about the schedule of the following flights:

EDI-BLQ
GLA-FAO
GLA-MAH

Also, is it correct the 170 is used on all of these weekend charter flights?

Thanks

Not sure about this year, but last summer most, if not all of the GLA charters were E190s.

Don't forget the Sightseeing flights. One of my colleagues took a 3-hour EDI-EDI flight last month on a BA E170 to go hunting the northern lights. These flights happen all over the country.

On a slightly different tack does anyone have access to a list linking BA CityFlyer scheduled flight call signs to the equivalent flight number?

Are they "classic" charter flights, where all passengers get a mealtray? Do the BA E-jets have big enough galleys to store meal trolleys for a return rotation?


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Could BA do their own flights with the e-jets from LGW,STN, SEN and EDI, GLA at weekends all year round?

There's nothing stopping them from launching such routes and operating them year round. But why would they?

One great thing about operating flights on a chartered basis is the ease of marketing and the selling of such flights. You market your services to one or two tour groups, and they purchase all the capacity to sell as part of a package. Compare that to running the flights as regular scheduled departures - you have to market and sell the flights to the general public who will buy a couple of seats at a time. Seats not sold is potential revenue lost. Having someone else sell the seats for you (a tour group) reduces your sales/marketing expenditure; and depending on how the contract is set up, seats not sold may not affect your revenue earned. Some agreements for example pay a set sum for the flight to be operated, regardless as to whether it's full or not.

I think CJ are taking the logical approach to their spare weekend capacity - give it someone else to sell.

Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 7):

The aircraft have full galleys with ovens both forward & aft, so could offer a full hot meal service. On board service is normally specified by the company chartering the flight. Many BACF charters ex Scotland have been contracted by Scottish travel agency chain Barrhead Travel for their package holidays

And if the flight is not full the weight carried is lower than expected, the fuel burn is reduced and the saving on a major cost element washes through to the bottom line. With such a contract flying half empty is a lot better than flying with a 100 per ceent load factor.
