I fly BMI LHR
all the time.
It's nearly always full.
Last week I flew my parents down...
Virgin has engineering works every weekend for the last 12 months and for the next twelve months meaning weekend travel is not less than 4h30 before any of the usual delays, wind, rain, leaves, voodoo or black magic occurs.
At £50.40 for the train, to £78 for the plane at relative short notice to me there is absolutely no question as to who I would travel.
At the same time you get a drink and a sandwich on BMI
, compared to nothing what so ever and standing in the aisles on virgin trains.
it's not just the time and the money...
it's the being treated like a person and not cattle that makes the difference.
I say good luck to BMI
btw.. Ryan air and Easyjet do not fly the London Manchester route.
route is always full as well, even though it starts round £100, this is the true fastest city to city method..
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY
