BMI A32X At LGW Today, 29/01?

Mon Jan 30, 2006 5:28 am

Hey,

Happened to look out of the kitchen window and a BMI A32X took off. I'm guessing this was covering for WW? Or is it just another one of BMI's mad plans in their quest to be the most rediculous airline in our skies Wink

Cheers,

BD operate charter flights at the weekend, and have done for years. It is probably working a First Choice service as they have a longstanding arrangement with that carrier.

The A321 is used on shuttles/Euro routes during the week and when it is quieter at weekend, they go on to charters. Makes BD money. Some shuttles on MAN-LHR even see the Embraers.
Lead me not into temptation, I can find my own way there...
