BMI Baby 14th October Man-PMI

Mon Oct 10, 2005 11:16 pm

Does any know if the BMI Baby to Palma from Manchester is full yet. I know its still4 days to go but Im quite a nervous passenger and this will be my first flight without family. I will be travelling with mates so i will have to look brave but it still doesnt stop the normal worry. If it isnt so full then i will be a bit more relaxed. Anyway know what BMI Baby is like to fly on, seat wise, are they nice inside i.e not cramped etc..
Thanks for anyones responses.

I hope you have a lovely holiday and I would love to come and hold your hand on the flight Big grin

Seriously, I hate to dissapoint but my experience of BMIbaby is they are amnst the worst of the LCCs. The cabins of their tired old 737s are dirty, the cabin crew wear manky t-shirts which look like they have been washed on a high temp and turned grey and the on board drink/snack menu is both overpriced and unappetizing.

Im sure you and the lads will have a good time once you are there though. I reckon a few of your mates will be scared too but not show it.

God your like a broken record.

What Orion says is generally, IMHO, bollocks. WW do fly older aircraft, and the cabins reflect that, but I would not say they are dirty. They are a bit dim inside admittedly.

Also, the service from the 'tiny crew' is normally fine. They are cheery, the flight deck refer to the flights as 'babyflight' and its very informal and relaxed.
Inflight services are on a par with the rest of the LCC's and priced accordingly.

Don't take any notice of Orion's usual whinging, Bmibaby are fine, and their drinks and snacks are just as overpriced as Ryanair's. The crew do not wear manky t-shirts, at least not on any of the Bmibaby flights I have travelled on, they all wore blouses or shirts.

I have only flown WW twice: MAN-ORK-MAN. I found both flights to be fine, very no-frills, as expected. Nothing to really complain about.

Britannia191a.

Despite many of us on here moaning a lot about BMI/BMI baby for what we think are strange decisions regarding much of their business decisions, the important thing for you as a nervous passenger is that, whether or not the interior is cosmetically tatty, cramped or whatever, the airline is a professional operation run under strict safety standards. BMI baby will be no less in this respect than mainline BMI, so you have really no reason to worry about flying with them.

Enjoy your trip  Smile

Going back to your original question... Is the flight booked up?

I have looked at the website and there is more than 20 seats for the flight still on sale. So... NO the flight is not booked up yet.

BMI Baby are just fine.

They'll get you there puncually like any other low cost carrier and legroom is 29-30inch seat pitch.

Probably worth while eating before the flight, for example go to McD's or BK, as is better an paying £3-4 for a plastic sandwich. BMI Baby's onboard catering is no worst than any of the other LCC pricewise but is still a rip-off. Hence why we all have a choice!

On a slightly different note...
There seems to be a hate campain for Orion737 at the moment... What has he done wrong? Other than commenting on his dislike for BMI Baby which everyone is entitled to an opinion! Keep smiling!

Thank you to you all for your comments. Much appreciated and I will board the plane as you only live once, but your comments have helped espcially the one about the others will be just as nervous.

I've flown bmibaby a couple of times. The first time in Jan 2004, the crew wore those scruffy t-shirts which Orion mentioned, but when I flew them again recently (Aug 2005) these seem to have been replaced by a smarter, more professional looking uniform.

They are absolutely fine to fly with. As mentioned, some of the interiors are perhaps a little tired but I've seen far worse on some other LCC's who shall remain nameless! Food, including hot sandwiches can be purchased on-board at prices comparable with a BK or McD from the airport. Given the choice, I prefer to give my money to the airline and it's suppliers rather than some corporate monster that serves crap.

Hope you enjoy your flights, WW are very safe so no need to worry.

They will because you appear to be suggesting deletion to every post you deem in any way offensive. I know this because I, and others, have cofnirmed that they are receiving Post deletion notices from the mods.

Perhaps as has been said before, some self reflection would assist you Orion. Until then, put forward valid arguments, not blinkered anti-modernisation drivel, and you might find yourself less so.

Please do not make those kind of assumptions. I have never ever suggested even ONE post deletion to the moderators. If you are getting these notices from the mods then it is solely their decisions based on what is being written.

You were the instigator of this campaign. In every single thread, you take delight in criticising not just my opinions but me personally.

Yes - yet he can slag off all businessmen - his reason for this is NOT valid to tar us with the same brush - and doesn't like it when people take offense.

Nobody would mind if he was offering up some valid, sensible, analytical logic that would benefit the forum in general. Instead we get worthless drivel like:

a.) I hate this airline because i have to pay for a cuppa.

b.) All businessmen are fat and corrupt and milk the company and leave the poor emplyees starving and penniless.

c.) All low cost airlines are bad

d.) I hate Tui for no particular reason.

e.) I hate DSA because its not LBA and Tui have made a LCC base there.

For once come back with some logical, worthwhile valued opinions based on some real knowledge rather than just something you sit and think up while wanking into a sock in your bedroom.

I am heartily fed up of all the bickering and back-biting. I may be partly to blame but I am certainly not alone.

This forum provides a facility for differing opinions and viewpoints on aviation. It seems that anyone offering an opposing view to the 'cliques' that are always hovering waiting to make some unkind remark or some criticism are disrupting the forum.

I always though I would not allow myself to be pushed out by those who wish to see the back of me. They may not share my views but I cannot understand why they cannot respect my right to my opinion.

Shes old (very) everything is held together with ducktape! (ive seen it believe me!!!)

Her seats a cramped! i'm only 5'8" and i was uncomfortable!

Alot of squeaks and she moans and groans constantly especially at cruise!

The breaks make terrible flatulence noices and the entire plane shakes infact the vibrations even made my teeth chatter!

The f/a's aren't the best and the uniforms are a shocker!
You can Purchase a hot Bacon baguette on board for £3.50 but i really wouldnt bother! the bacon has been waved at the flame !

"Baby Blue Skies" has seen alot of service and it's retirement is long over due!

Absolutely correct. But at least try and take on board some of the views and experience of people who actually work in the industry.

I keep telling myelf not to get drawn into some of these pathetic debates but still i do.

Maybe its my fault - I had hoped that the type of discussions on here in civil aviation could be between people who can discuss issues to a reasonable level of interest and intelligence for somebody who's an industry professional, and that perhaps i could learn something and maybe help other enthusiasts learn too. But when the arguments and posts are about people who's main objection to an airline changing its business focus is the price of a cuppa or whatever then I guess i'm in the wrong place, if they can't follow a reasoned argument from people who know the industry.

maybe i should give up posting on here - lets hope the new job keep me busy enough not to need an A.net fix.

BMIbaby733 made many points which i agree with and which i raised about the scruffy flight attendants and scruffy 737 cabins. You are selective in who you criticise, which leads me to believe you are mounting some sort of vendetta against me.

I held out from this as long as I can but I'm going to post now. Orion, if your reading, I wouldn't say there is a campaign against you. Yes members on this board are very vocal in their disagreement with you an awful lot of the time, but I wouldn't say its a campaign.

This is the way I see it. You are fan of the charter airlines of the 1980's. This is because you have very fond memories of some of your first holidays flying with such carriers (like many on this board). No wonder you like them so much - no problem with that at all. You also feel that airlines now just aren't as good as they were back then - again no problem with that, its your opinion and you are entitled to that!

However, you constantly over and over post about how todays airlines are so awful. Too many times there have been topics about charter airines or LCC's, where yet again you have replied about how bad you think they are. A lot of the time your replies aren't even relevant to the subject of the topic, just a chance to shout even more about those hot towels.

Time after time members here have given excellent and structured answers as to why the industry have gone this way and why it isn't all free on charter airlines anymore. But again we still hear it. I see topics posted and can immediately predict that the thraed will be hijacked with another rant - and you don't dissapoint. To be honest I find this tiring, very tiring. Most of the time I don't reply to it, but sometimes I do. Too many times a good thread is just turned into a whingeing session.

That doesn't mean I don't like you. That doesn't mean theres a campaign against you. Perhaps people are tiring of the same old same old. I wouldn't say anyone here is vindictive towards you.

You've not seen his views on LTN airport then Giles.....

How did anyone possibly know I was pro LTN! - Im shocked and offended!

Orion737 - You seem to be a very highly strung person and take everything far to seriously. I think you might have some issues!  banghead 

As your teacher once told you at school - Dont respond to them otherwise you will only lower yourself to their level.

Also I need to have a word with you... I here you have been saying some not very nice things about LTN!  box 

But you have to admit Catatonics comments were absolutely hilarious! - Im gonna have to come on here more often for entertainment purposes!  laughing

I know i am going to get flamed for this one, but i find everyones attitude towards Orion737 pathetic.

Nah I certainly won't flame you. You're new! Big grin

Joking aside, your entitled to an opinion. Everyone is, of course. But JMC757 has summed it all up. (pretty damn well I must say) It is not Orions opinions which are the problem - many of us agree to an extent. It's his inability to accept logic which frustrates many. Sure, there are a few of us who react to the incessant and repetative muesli he comes out with, but there is, I'm confident, equally as many who sit back and ignore.

My personality does not allow me to sit back.

Unfortunately, thats all Orion's personality allows him to do. Pretty much every single one of us work or study so that we'll all be able to live comfortably. Be that now, or in our future lives. The majority of us work in the industry, allowing an array of knowledge and opinions you'd never get in any boardroom or debate auditorium. We transfer this knowledge into these forums so that we can all learn. I learn SO much in here you'd be amazed. To learn you have to be open and receptive to the comments posted. Frankly, Orion is not. And this is where, IMHO, these arguments surface.

I object to being called a 'scruffy f/a'!! Yes, our aircraft are old, but they all are comfortable to fly on, NONE ,make any 'moans' or 'groans', they are very well maintained at EMA. The seat pitch is good too!! Our prices are no more expensive than any other L/C, or even charter for that matter. (give or take the odd 10p)
People who constantly slate Baby really P**s me off! Yes there are a few strange decisions made, but we are still a good airline. Us 'Scruffy F/A's' actually enjoy flying for Baby.

BRITANNIA191A - Enjoy your flight with us, hope you enjoy and take no notice of certain comments on here!!!

Living near East Midlands I have had the pleasure of flying with BMI Baby on many occasions. I have flown on several of their 300's and 500's and all have been excellent. The seats are fine and the interiors are basically good for a low cost airline. The crew are always friendly especially condsidering the hours they work at times. Certainly beat the competition at EMA hands down in my opinion. They wear t-shirts??? And????????? What is wrong with that? It's a more modern and stylish look. I like it.  cheerful

Alot of squeaks and she moans and groans constantly especially at cruise!

Hmm...All I can say to that is I did two flights yesterday on Ryanair 732's. NOTHING can be as bad as that (I still enjoyed them though!)

This may seem like a silly question, and excuse my ignorance. But why is your username BMIbaby733 if you don't really like them?  Smile

er........... Easyjet Aircraft aren't all 'brand new'!! Ok they were when they first had them, I'm sure the original 737-300's were once immaculate, just as the A319's are now. But now the 737-300's are dated.

The topic was a question about BMI Baby was it not? We are giving our personal opinions about that airline for the guy. I happen to rate Easyjet very highly too. Everybody has opinions, but can't we just stick to the original topic please, ie BMI Baby?  bored   confused   irked

Just for info, a number of WW's -300's are actaully ex U2 anyway. So there we go, everyone should be happy now! It's like anything really, as something gets older it gets a little but tatty. It's much easier and much less costly to buy a new pair of shoes however than it is to refit the entire cabin of the a/c. So it's a but shabby, does it really matter? It wouldn't be in the sky if it wasn't airworthy at the end of the day!

Its really quite something when you, as a 'Booking Agent' happen to know this. Have you thought to inform the appropriate authorities?  sarcastic 

I highly doubt this.

Its very refreshing to have someone who has the balls to state his opinions, even if they may be controversial. BMIbaby733 long may you continue to have the courage to speak.

While never doubting the saftey of the BMIbaby 735s I do hold firm, having flown several, that their interiors are worn, dirty and tired. That dosent make the aircraft unsafe, of course not, but it does create an impression in passengers minds.

I keep reading this and can't make sense of it. Sorry. Could you perhaps repunctuate it?

How dramatic. Its a public, almost anonymous aviation forum Orion, not the House of Lords.

I agree yes, but BMIBaby733 perhaps should have been much more sensitive to the thread starter who clearly admits to being a nervous flyer. Telling him his plane may groan and squeak will not instill that much confidence in the guy now, will it?
