Does BD Fly Heathrow - Geneva?

Mon Feb 26, 2007 7:49 am

My friend flew out this morning on a British Midland flight from Heathrow - Geneva.

I wasn't aware they flew this route. It was at 8.20am Sunday 25th February.

Is it just a winter charter? How often do they fly this route and on what aircraft is it on?

Earlier than that was BD 7015 which was scheduled to depart 0640.
