How did this come about? I thought BCAL was created by a merger with BUA and Caledonian? Did the venture capitalists get involved due to an MBO?
Any info would be much appreciated. I'm sure someone like BCAL could fill me in .
|Quoting BCAL (Reply 4):|
For many years, BCal was the sole UK operator on flights between the UK and South America (inherited from BUA who took over the loss-making route from BOAC/BSAA and turned it into a profitable route). They also started international services from LGW to Houston, DFW, and Atlanta. Following a review of the UK passenger aviation scene, BCal was designated the second UK carrier.

Didn't they also have quite a network of routes to Southern Africa too?
