Here is a summary of an article about BA's futur plans... You can find this article at this address :
This article is about BA's plans to cut capacity through switching to smaller aircraft : instead of using B757 , they'll be using A319 and instead of B744 , B777... What worries me is that they are only cutting capacity on the economy class !!!
They are going to cease some operations at Gatwick mainly European destinations... But the the thing that made me worry is the following :
Stinnes , head of investor relations at BA , says: "The route network will also change. If you ask me if we'll be flying to holiday destinations like Malaga in three years' time I would say no. We're looking for places with a good business mix. While the short-haul network will go to fewer destinations, the frequency of flights to the cities we do serve will increase substantially. We'll offer the best and most frequent services to the biggest and most important business cities in Europe."
So does that mean that Ba will only serve Par, Fra , Ams, Zrh , Gva , Mad... and what about Malaga , Sevilla, Faro, Zagreb, Riga, Bilbao, Genoa... And what about franchises like GB airways , National Jet Italy ???
BA's futur plans are worrying... What's BA without it's marvellous route network ??? What do you think ???
