African Star are considering starting 3 x weekly Manchester - Munich - Johannesburg from April using 747 equipment. As on another topic BD will expand ops out of MAN, EI Commuter will pull out of LBA,NCL and BRS to be replaced by BRAL and BRY. It may be that Brymons next ERJ145 is put on NCL-CPH.
Anything else?

Hi GKirk.

I cant think of any new news, but I was wondering if you know how things are with Braathens at NCL. What aircrafts are they currently using?

Cheers

I don't know whats going on, because it seems that the Oslo flight still operates some days. Tommorrow will see at 10:40am BU561 arriving from Oslo and then at 11:20 BU571 arriving from Oslo/Stavanger. Then later at night BU573 arrives at 5:50pm from Oslo/Stavanger. The flights are supposed to be operated with F50s although high loads have meant that 735s have been appearing on some flights. Lear45 will know more. I think the F50s have been operating jam-packed.
