This rumour seems to do the rounds every few months, but this time seems to come from a fairly credible source.
bmi are apparently set to end their Durham Tees Valley (Teesside) to London Heathrow route from the end of Winter 2007/8 timetable.
The source is an employee at Aviance, their handlers at MME.
This will be a shame. It is bmi's oldest route. But with their long haul expansion at LHR they seem to need the slots.
Does anyone think that Ryanair or FlyGlobespan would start a London route from MME with bmi gone? The rule was that no other airline was allowed to start a jet route to London whilst bmi operated here.
