That's a lot of free flights to be giving away...
This begs the question on how well ticket sales have been going for bmibaby from Cardiff, and I hope this doesn't indicate poor sales...
There has been a fair degree of scepticism over the potential success of these flights from CWL and if they can give away 20000 free flights from the first months capacity it does not augur well.
Having said that, you wouldn't expect leisure services like Alicante, Malaga, Faro and Jersey to perform that well during November.

I just booked myself from GLA and my brother from EDI to visit my other brother in Cardiff for £15 return. Used to be the cheapest with BA was £129 and the train about £50 so we usually drove down. Another example of how the budget airlines attract 'new' passengers into the air.
