Good news for BHX this as well as runway extension could be good times ahead.

Large enough to handle 2 77W's or 10 NB aircraft apparently.

An article from ITV claims it will be used to service AA & EK aircraft in addition to ZB's. Don't know how true that is. Especially AA using BHX for maintenance seems a bit incredulous.

I can see two possibilities. Firstly, they will rotate aircraft through LHR or, secondly, the rumors of another US carrier returning to BHX are true and it's AA. Of all the carriers I can see making a second BHX flight work, AA would be the one right now.

Will this be the only 787 maintenance facility in the UK then? At least until BA/VS get theirs, I expect they'll want facilities at LHR/CWL.

Aren't Thomson at Luton doing engineering for their B787s?

Monarch Engineering has the contract for Thomsons (&LOT) 787's. I don't think facilities at LTN are sufficient.
