I think in the next few years WW
will get swallowed up by one of the other LCCs or get closed down completely. It depends what happens to BD
I suppose. As for the original question I don't think we'll see any expansion from MAN
. They might open new routes but this would probably be at the expense of the closure of another MAN
route. Baby seem to have a strategy of spreading themselves thinly rather than gaining an uber-large presence at any particular airport. With Jet2, Monarch and even Ryanair expanding at MAN
I don't see anywhere for WW
to go there.
Maybe with bmi marketing bmibaby "tiny" fares on its own flights then baby could eventually be absorbed back into mainline, rather like Air Canada and Tango?
