I travelled BA
/QF to SYD
a few years ago via FRA
. There were a lot of people on the BA
flight to Frankfurt who then joined the QF
flight. I'd imagine that the feed from the BA
flights is a way of maximising capacity. How full were the CX
when they operated anyway?
as yet does not codeshare on IB
route. Following EU approval for BA
/IB/GT to deepen codeshare on Anglo-Spanish routes that will likely change. Maybe BAcx will take over the route from the current IB
A320 - WW
must be taking some chunk of the business for this flight?
As for EI
not being in T3
isn't this partly to do with security? Channel island flights depart from T1 gates for BA
despite the fact that check-in is in T3
. I don't know all the details but signage in T1/T3 is very clear that Channel island and Eire flights depart from T1.
did try expanding MAN
L/H flights around '96 with a five times weekly MAN
service (BA276/277) operated with a 763. It also used to route LGW
-ISB with a 742 for several years. Now this flight is LHR
-ISB with a 772 I wonder whether this is due to PK
's frequencies? I recall flying SN MAN
a couple of years back from T2
and there being 4 PK
747s present routing to US/Pakistan!
An Airliner World article recently on MAN
showed proposed T2
extension to be built in next few years thus making the terminal symmetrical in appearance when seen in plan view.
(albeit on a 757) and suggestions on here that MIA
will follow, maybe an expansion of L/H will occur. Be nice to see QF
and CX MAN
again but probably unlikely for several years.
