The basic return ticket is now £6800. You do get upgrades and staff discounts, (BA get a 90% discount, others 60-75%).
Looking at lists the other day, you noticed that many familiar names were on board again, I don't mean famous people, though they are too, rather very frequent business users. They said all along they'd be back, the media were rather sceptical, what do they know?
For the return to service, a 60% discounted ticket was available for about a week, at least one Air.Net member is taking advantage of that offer.
Pre the grounding, charters made up 9% of the revenue, but used up a lot of airframe life, so BA were looking to reduce them.
Now the official line is no charters until 2003, and then only a few lucrative ones, (no more 90 minute Mach 2 pleasure flights for £600-£800).
But since Sept. 11th, in the 'cash is king' BA, we've heard marketing are looking again at charters.
When more modified aircraft are available, we'll see what happens. Next are the Saturday LHR-BGI/BGI-LHR flights starting 1st December, some are already fully-booked.
