Hi, just noticed that today, FB took delivery of its first Embraer 190 (total order of seven, all to be delivered this year). I take it as granted that they are directly replacing the seven ageing BAe aircraft, so no fleet expansion here? Recently, they also have got rid of their Boeing 737 fleet, operating now 3x A320 plus 3x A319. The fleet mix looks quite resonable to me.
So, how does the overall performance at Bulgaria Air look like? Any insight on the financial/economical situation?
Their route map looks quite healthy, covering all major cities in Europe. Is there any chance they might join an alliance? Because to me, this seems to be the only way such a regional carrier can survive.
