Forgot to mention extra Sunday LBA-CDG service!

I'm almost certain that the MAN-GLA frequency is going up to what is was before October last year, so it's hardly an enhancement!

I heard OK660 last night-that must be a BHX flight.

EMA-FRA is interesting. If you try and book the flight it gives you FRA-BHX on LH, then a connection from BHX to EMA on BD 9990, which takes an hour. Is this a bus transfer or something? It is not mentioned in their displayed itinerary. Are they being cheeky?

Billy,

The BD99.. flight numbers used to be for operational positioning, and indeed I believe IATA standards suggest that airlines shouldn't use that flight number range for "normal" revenue flights. I find it hard to believe that they'd run a flight between EMA and BHX, so I'd guess its either a smoke and mirrors job to disguise the fact they're pulling out of EMA-FRA, or indeed the BD9990/BD9993 will be operated by equipment type "BUS" (actually, isn't RFS the more correct designation?).

I thought it was the 95xx for the positioning?

I'm just trying to book a Tucson to SFO ticket and UAL is suggesting a Tucson to San Jose flight connecting to a San Jose to San Francisco "flight" it doesn't mention anything about a bus. Are they allowed to do this? Maybe it's the new Star Alliance bus service? Maybe Stagecoach is joining Star Alliance?

Airlines do show BUS as equipment type (LH run them between FRA and eg Heidelburg). RFS usually refers to road feeder service for airline numbered cargo trucks - I have never seen it operate for pax services.

BTW the BD 9990 had a journey time of 1 hour, so I cannot imagine that it is a flight transfer. The BMI note says that after examining my request for a fare EMA-FRA, it has come up with the FRA-BHX-EMA service, though it does not show either the transfer point or equipment type. One of the poorest resrvation systems I have seen.

Here's the Heathrow increases:

• Stuttgart – an additional early morning flight from Germany and a later evening flight from London will increase the number of return flights from three to four a day, Monday to Friday.
• Belfast International – an additional early morning flight from Belfast and a later evening flight from London will increase the number of return flights from three to five a day, Monday to Friday.
• Brussels – an extra daily return flight Monday to Friday, increasing the number of services from six to seven a day.
• Paris – an additional early morning departure from Heathrow at 0840, will increase the number of return flights from five to six, Monday to Friday.

I think the designated number for RFS depends on the airlines. NW's 9xxx are usually NOT RFS, they're operated by partner airlines.

Excellent news that bmi are increasing services from LBA!!

Cork should do well owing to the large Irish community in West Yorkshire. Still surprising that they havent started a route to FRA or MUC??

Oh well, ORK is better than a slap in the face with a wet haddock!
