That's great but what about the oddball destinations? Long and thin routes? KRT/ADD/FNA/GYD/ALA??
These are nearly if not all ex BMED routes so BA
have a idea of how they have historically performed. It will be interesting to see what BD
do with there medium haul routes. Here is a list of the medium haul routes and what I think could happen to them.
Addis Ababa (ADD)
op a A321 3 x Weekly via BEY
will probably drop ADD
altogether or they could decide to operate the flight via JED
on a 767 with a reduced 2 x weekly frequency.
op a A332 3 x Weekly) BA
will likely continue to operate ALA
3 x weekly but not as a direct service, they may instead decide to operate the flight via GYD
op a A321 Daily) BA
will very likely continue to operate a daily service each with RJ
codesharing on BA
's service. BA
already codeshare on RJ
's service from LHR
op a A332 3 x Weekly via ALA
) Have no idea with this one as I am unsure how this route has been performing since it's launch. Anyone have any idea of pax numbers/load factor on this route
op a A321 Daily) I think will likely remain unchanged
op a A321 Daily and a A320 3 x Weekly) - Will probably decide to operate the route daily with a A321 or 767
op a A321 3 x Weekly via GYD) - I think will likely remain unchanged
op a A332 3 x Weekly via RUH
) I said in my earlier post

DMM will probably remain with BA operating it as a continuation of there current JED service. JED will likely increase to daily.
Another possibility is to op DMM
currently do with flight op on a 777.
op a A332 3 x Weekly) - I think the service could continue to be operated direct using a 767.
op 2 x A321 & 1 x A320 Weekly via BEY
will probably cease to serve KRT themselves. They could instead offer a connection and enter a codeshare agreement with RJ
who op to KRT via AMM
op 4 x A321 Weekly via GYD) I think will likely remain unchanged
op a A321 Daily via EVN) I think will likely remain unchanged
op direct A321) I think will likely remain unchanged
