Good to see the tickets are available! At these prices I'll be flying every weekend!

Buy on board seems a little expensive, but I'd imagine its no different to any other offering.

Well, 0,60 pounds for a Coke is not that expensive. I would go for the Pizza Slice at 4 pounds  Wink

I found an EDI-CDG-EDI for 89 pounds, is it cheap?

Nah, EDI lot have other choices
PIK-BVA-PIK Ryanair £30 return
NCL-CDG-NCL easyJet £30 return

Even with travelling to NCL or PIK, it'd still be cheaper than flying BA, plus you get a decent sized a/c and not a tiny ER4  Wink

Well we all knew what was coming! Im dissapointed. A sad day for me when I see yet another full service airline at Manchester go down the no frills route. First BD now BACitiExpress.

I will probably fly them, havent much choice unless I fly to LHR/LGW and then onwards to Europe and as much as I like my frills, I cannot see me doing that and will prob take the convenient option even if its not what I would like to buy.

BA at Man are now a no frills airline for short haul European and lets hope their cabin staff hang their heads in shame as they come collecting money for a soft drink.

So excellent tools like Manage My Booking aren't frills for you?

Two things have changed:
1) the fares (they have lowered)
2) you have to pay for food (I personally prefer to pay for a tasty sandwich, instead of getting a 'complimentary' bag of pretzels)

I will still go out of my way to fly airlines like BA Connect, as I find perks like being able to check-in and select your seat (for free!) are important, just like the flexibility you get for example in case your flight is cancelled (rebookings etc.). No "there might be place on tomorrow's flight, come back tomorrow" Ryanair-style in case of problems for me.

I'm sure the cabin crew won't be too pleased, as their jobs are now devalued to a certain extent. Must be quite demeaning to go from full service with Club, to LCC.

Also, is this what passengers want, or just WW deciding what they want in order to turn a profit? I was never asked as a fairly-regular BA passenger from MAN what I wanted!

Exactly. IT's basic business principles - delivering what the market wants, and adjusting accordingly.

Quoting Mhodgson (Reply 10):

It is what customers want, because they were turning away in their droves from mainline carriers and switching to the LCC option, Hence the demise of many routes CitiExpress once operated succesfully. Public consultation wasn't necessary - if BA hadn't adjusted accordingly, they wouldn't be here in a few years time (as a regional operator).

Im not the only one who doesnt pay for my own flights. Most business passengers dont either and they and I are the type of customer who are looking for a full service carrier. What now for the C class Citiexpress passengers, where will they move their business to? other European carriers serving MAN which still offer a C cabin?

You might have to even speak to the cabin crew to order your food now, instead of grunting 'yes' or 'no' at them when they ask you if you would like breakfast/lunch/dinner.

Just a quick question.
For those passengers who used to fly in Club Europe and will now have to fly in Y using the 'BA Connect Plus' ticket, will these passengers actually experience a real difference? Please correct me if I am mistaken, but apart from the meal, the passengers will continue to have full flexibility, lounge access, same seat on board and the ability to earn tier points on BA Executive Club. There doesn't seem to be much difference at all to Club Europe on Citiexpress!
I've just realised, if Connect Plus passengers are allowed to use BA lounges, surely they can grab a snack and drink in there for free!
Any comments?

But look how much money businessmen/women or companies will save! If I wanted to fly with CitiExpress in Feb (before BA Connect model comes in on March 26) in Club Europe with a fully flexible ticket from MAN to CDG, I would have to pay:

£626.70*

Now for the same flexibility, lounge access, same seat and tier points and no meal the new BA Connect Plus ticket would cost me:

£551*

That's a saving of about £70! Not bad for missing out on free airline food and alcohol!

*Quoted from ba.com. Fares is for one adult and includes all taxes and charges.

Many business travellers arent interested in saving their company money. They utilise their expanses to the full. If they can get the wives sheepskin cleaned for nothing and claim it back on dry cleaning expenses they will!

You might find not as many suits partake of a G&T or Scotch now they have to pay themselves.

It seems economy passengers get a good deal too by the looks of things.
MAN-CDG rtn on CitiExpress restricted economy (lowest price) costs £109.70.
When the BA Connect model comes in March, MAN-CDG (lowest price) costs £78.

Again, not bad - but I'm sure LCCs are much cheaper. Then again, with BA Connect you get the resources of BA, especially when things go pear shaped!

Like it's their fault? Come on. I think they would rather still have a job doing that than sitting in a dole queue or sending CV's out.

I, for one, will gladly support my own airline now that it is making a positive effort to make itself work.

A test booking for BHD-MAN-BHD (out 4 April, return 6 April), when clicked on two £25 flights reveals a fare breakdown of £2 plus £43.40 taxes: total £45.40.

If paid by Debit no extra charge. Visa credit card is £2 extra.

Both under the £50 mark - excellent value I think for a BA flight.

Most of us (the one's who work for big companies) know only too well that keeping costs down is of paramount importance.

Yep.

Cost reduction, overall increased efficiency (which includes cost reduction and increased productivity) and rationalisation (an adaptive culture to this end and others are mandatory) are essential elements in any business. Why? You're in business to make a profit. So, then, why pay more for anything that you need to*? Despite what some people might think, cost reduction does not need to adversely affect your product; indeed, the opposite can be true - they would have more money to spend on it to make it unbeatably good and to thereby increase your all-important competitive advantages and hopefully, in turn, to increase your profit (or simply keep the same product and have bigger margins  Silly ).

* So long as it doesn't adversely affect your relationships with your essential stakeholders or your product or service.

Well I said this in another post yesterday on another thread, but here goes...

I do not agree with the buy on board model for BA because I believe it dilutes the BA brand. No, I do not expect BA to subsidize BACX, but I do not think that this is the way to go. I fear that Wicked Willie will make other such similar changes to BA. There is a significant percentage of travellers who do not want the no-frills / low cost model, and do not mind paying a bit more for it, myself included. I sell a lot of BA for that very reason, and none of my clients are thus far impressed with this idea. One of my main concerns is to try and ensure GB Airways does not follow suit (they op. the FAO LON route where 90% of our BA sales originate.)

To compare our 2005 results: (total sales by airline)
Ryanair : EUR 432
EasyJet: EUR 11,561
BA: EUR 1,550,746

you can see why I have an interest in BA not screwing things up.

Same with afternoon flights, add £4 on and give everybody some food. The prices are still low enough to be LCC ish yet you can advertise free food.

Although adding just an extra £5 wouldn't rise the price too much would it?

If you were quoted £27 and £32, mentally they're about the same. The worst case scenario would be £30 and £35 - although imo that's still worth it.
