|Quoting BBJII (Reply 3):
UN are concerned about LHR as there is more competition, where as LGW they are the only carrier to Moscow, and pick up alot of traffic from connections.

Isn't DME Transaero's base instead of SVO?
If correct, BD/UN/BA will operate to SVO, with Aeroflot only operating to SVO
|Quoting Billy (Reply 5):|
This fits with BM's strategy of going for the 4-6 hour sector flights. Egypt and the like are open to research. It allows them to operate either widebody or narrowbody, too, depending upon market size.

Ah - hence the suggestion of the second 767. CAI anyone?
|Quoting Billy (Reply 8):|
They are looking for tags to the DMM service, but flying to DMM with an A321??!! and then on to ?? Muscat? Shahjah? Doha? And you are up against LH A340 and KL 767/330s
Crewing issues makes it impossible to tag via another Saudi point.
|Quoting Humberside (Reply 11):|
Transaero have served LHR before havent they?
|Quoting Zkojh (Reply 13):|
as for taking another 767' not likely to happen - as BD are in talks with LH to lease to A340's for next year, as by early 07 both of the 767's that are in the fleet now will be gone.
