Are these on off operations or regularly scheduled flights?
For example, can we expect BY to operate winter services to OAK on a regular basis?

Are they sure they are going to run their MSY flights?

I believe the MSY flights are just for cruises, so i see no reason why they shouldn't operate. Also the only flight is in February, 6 months from now. Although it won't be rebuilt, it should be "back in business" by then.

Wow, how unforetunate for those BOH passengers heading to JFK, i thought they got a direct, non-stop 747-200 service with european aviation.

Are the FLL flights charters for cruises as well?

Who says New Orleans won't be rebuilt? That would be an affront to the people of New Orleans and to the History of the United States, Louisiana, France and the world. My question was on whether or not the Port of New Orleans would be open enough to allow for cruise ships. It is not as if the cruise terminal is next to the airport, it is downtown

I don't think the flights to MSY will operate. Most cruise lines that I know of, including the one I work for, have moved out of MSY indefinately.

I would imagine the FLL flights are for cruises too.

Most but not all of the MSY flights were for cruises. Bath Travel were running a city break to the city with charter flights from BOH, although apparently, not using Thomsonfly.

I have tried to list the frequency of the flights. For example, I have listed the OAK as a one off - no more are listed this winter. Not sure why they are going to OAK though.. doubt its for a cruise.

Cruises DO depart from San Francisco, just across the Bay, for Mexico and the South Pacific.

Not saying that it's not for a cruise, I just don't know of any agent in the UK that is operating a charter flight.

OAK must be much easier for the airline to get into, not to mention cheaper.

What's the point of flying a single flight from London to OAK or did I miss the bus here?

It's a charter flight. Some are a series of charters, and some, evidently, are ad-hoc one off flights.
