BA - BMI Domestic T1 And T5

Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:31 am

Since the integration of BMI to BA I have flow from both T1 and T5 and as I am sure most of you will be aware T5 is a far superior experience.

Is it likely that BA will retain any domestic ops in T1 impacting on connections or will all domestic be transfered to T5?

With the introduction of a new route to Leeds what kind of impact will this have on an already full T5 are we likely to see Euro flights or Long haul moved to other terminals?

The latest terminal moves have just been confirmed:

http://press.ba.com/?p=2343

A number of existing British Airways routes including Basel, Dusseldorf, Luxembourg, Lyon and Toulouse will move from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 on October 28.

All flights to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Manchester will operate from Terminal 5 from the winter season.

Belfast is to stay in Terminal 1 and Leeds Bradford is reported to be staying in Terminal 1.

Perfect timining.

Thats good that domestic will be retained in T5

Does anybody know what BMI load factors from MAN to LHR have been like will there be an upgauge are we more likely to see a number of 321's or will they pile us in to 319's and 20's

Quoting liverpoola380 (Thread starter):

It is likely that some domestic BA operations will remain at T1 at least until T2 is completed. This is because the facilities for domestic arrivals and departures and those to and from the CTA (Common Travel Area - Republic of Ireland and the Channel Islands) are different to those used for international arrivals and departures. As far as I know T5 does not have sufficient facilities to handle all the new BA domestic and CTA flights and T1 would be more than half empty with no domestic / CTA flights and far from full if EI was the only operator of domestric and CTA flights there

If this situation will change when or after T2 is completed I do not know.

To illustrate the above according to the table on page 3 of the " LHR S12 Start of Season" report here:

http://www.acl-uk.org/reportsStatistics.aspx?id=98&subjectId=33

T! has the capacity to handle up to 1,500 domestic and 930 CTA but only 1,600 international passengers an hour. I very much doubt BAA would be prepared to see T1 domestic and CTA flights reduced to those only operated by EI any time soon.

Quite some exicting news from BA with the addition of Leeds and Zagreb... And there might be more to come.

From what I see, they are starting to conolidate domestic services which is good. The question is, are they already releasing the slots that are needed by the competition to start routes to Scotland?

I am also suprised they are keeping Agadir al LHR but moving RAK to LGW...

Other than that, it seems that BA is counter attackiing easyJet on routes to NCE and BCN? What about other routes to Spain? And what about TUN and ALG. They do deserve a LHR connection IMHO.

The next months are going to be exciting. I am looking forward to see what's going to happen to all ex BMED routes.

Has it been confirmed that Marrakech is moving from LHR to LGW (it would explain why Gatwick is going from 3w to daily).

Also it seems a bit weird to move Agadir to T5 but to have Casablanca remaining at T1.

Is there any announcements re the current dual terminal flights (Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester, Nice). Will they remain in T1 and T5 or all move to T5 in their entirety?

What stands at T5 have access to UK Arrivals? Is it 501-506 only? Also skytrax is full of moans about passengers arriving on these stands and being bussed to International Arrivals, I thought they were multi use and passengers could be streamed to the required arrivals route and still remain sterile. ( in the security sense, not eugenics!)

It is currently showing in the booking system as operating to/from LHR T1.

From what I have seen so far the majority if not all BA flights from T1 from the 28th October will operate on A319. I guess this standardises the operation from this terminal and thus the freed up larger A320/1's move over to ex-A319 routes over at T5.

The bmi A321's are in the process of having flatbeds put on so they will be used predominantly or exclusively on midhaul routes only.

I suspect the reason for the ex bmi 319s remaining within T1 is that they a bulk loading rather than containerised machines making T5 operations a headache.

Am I missing something here? I've just done a rough capacity check by counting passenger seats offered per day on flights departing from Terminal 1. The result is: 8,800 domestic/CTA and 22,000 international. The above post implies that both numbers should be approximately equal.

Because the terms and framework of the bidding process hasn't been formalised.

And how many competitors have actually expressed an interest in

LHR-NCE
LHR-EDI
LHR-ABZ

None formally and only waffle from VS and perhaps something from the new owners of bmiRegional

Yup - Swiss business seats (23 x Thompson Aero). First aircraft (G-MEDU) is in the hangar and will start operations on 14th July. All new slim line economy seats (131 x Geven “Piuma”) and Thales IFE. New lighting, galleys, carpets and curtains as well. Rumours are they will operate a mix of bmi mid haul routes and current BA routes. Daily AMM, BEY, GYD (continues 3x week to ALA), EVN/IKA, replaces BA metal on CAI and 3x daily TLV. Although by my reckoning that needs 8 aircraft rather than the 7 moving across.

Any chance we can get pictures of the seat designs posted? For the Biz seats, I don't believe I've seen any of that model fitted on a narrow body! Will be a very nice ride for sure. With the staggered seating, does that make the arrangement effectively 1-1?

Perhaps bmi didn't see think the additional cost of equipment and weight of containerisation was worth it on their network.

The general split of A32x models and routes is surely intentional to allow scheduling flexibility across the network.

The same flight number will change from A319 to A320 to A321 on a daily basis. Not surprising that ba.com can't catch up.
But ba.com will shoe A319 on all flights more than 4 months ahead.

It appears that all the ex-BMI A319 and A320 will stay on T1 and operate their own routes, like a separate little operation.

What's BA's plan for the coming years concerning terminal use, as BA's ops are only likely to grow? One thing that's nice about T5 is that it is a dedicated terminal. Kind of a shame that it can't handle all ops though.
If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much.

By 2015, BA will have exclusive use of Terminals 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. All other airlines except American, Iberia and Qantas will move to a new terminal, called Gatwick. Or Stansted.

Erm. Seriously, I suspect that this is the subject of some fairly serious discussions at the top level in BAA and BA. Presumably one of the difficulties at the moment is that the future state of the fully integrated business with the right fleet/route network/frequency (more long haul replacing BMI short haul aircraft etc) is not yet final so exactly what gate capacity they need where may not be settled.

Wow! Can't wait to see that!! Would make immigration queues at the South Terminal very unpleasant indeed, I should imagine....

Theoretically though, would LGW have the available infrastructure and capacity for this to be possible? Would such an arrangement actually benefit anyone (apart from the accountants and shareholders of GIP)? I am no expert, but I should imagine the value of LHR comes from having BA there as a hub carrier, along with the feed from other airlines; that is, a situation which would not exist at either LGW or LHR if this scenario was played out.

Just as a quick question - could BA put a 763 on the likes of MAN/ABZ on a one off basis?

Quoting CaptainDoony (Reply 42):
Just as a quick question - could BA put a 763 on the likes of MAN/ABZ on a one off basis?

IIRC BA 767's did used to fly LHR-MAN in the mid 90's. Not sure if they were simply positioning aircraft between long haul flights ex MAN (we had at least MAN-JFK running back then) or if they were used due to loads. BD didn't operate LHR-MAN back then. I guess it would be possible in the future if loads required.

ABZ again would be possible, but BD used to use the E145 quite a lot on this route, jumping to a 767 would be a huge leap in capacity.

ABZ has seen BA 763s in the past on the LHR run. Not often but it has happened. I flew one once, back in 1998 - first morning flight out to LHR, it had overnighted. At LHR, I got back on the same BA 763 with some of the same crew and flew to FRA.

BA did use 767s in the mid 1990s between LHR and MAN on a mid morning round trip. I flew a few times on them and they were almost always full. The crew also did a full meal and bar service too - hard work on a 35 minute flight! They were short haul configured 767s so I think it was purely based on demand rather than for rotating the MAN based 767.
Next flights: LCY-IOM (BA) IOM-LGW (U2); LHR-KUL-LHR (BA); KUL-LGK-KUL (AK)

Quoting AIR MALTA (Reply 6):
Quite some exicting news from BA with the addition of Leeds and Zagreb... And there might be more to come.

I expect the flights to RTM to be announced shortly. Slots (and flight schedule) have been allocated at Rotterdam - The Hague Airport previous week.
3 x Daily A319

Quoting steve6666 (Reply 37):
Presumably one of the difficulties at the moment is that the future state of the fully integrated business with the right fleet/route network/frequency (more long haul replacing BMI short haul aircraft etc) is not yet final so exactly what gate capacity they need where may not be settled.

I would have a thought a terminal 5D would be in order either way?
