BMI A330 TV Advert

Fri Mar 09, 2001 6:07 pm

Hi all

Watching UK Channel 4 last night I saw the BMI advert for the first time.

Part of the advert showed the A330 in flight so it must have taken off from somewhere.

Anyone seen it yet?

Hi!

I saw it last night. Livery looks better on the A330 than on the smaller planes. I like the slogan "Civil Aviation."

Does anyone know the expected delivery dates of the A330 to BMI?

cheers, Phil.

I see them on Sky as well. I have seen two different one so far. The livery does look better on the A330, though I'm sure its a computer image.

Hi all!

Since there is no A330 in the new BMI livery yet, it must be a computer image.

Best regards

It's so unfair!
I keep on only seeing the end shot (where the 'civil aviation' slogan pops up), and that's all i've seen.

I'd better start watching more tv...

I hadn't thought that they might do a promotional tour to raise awareness of the US flights, but it would be great for us in the south who won't see their A330s in London.
I want to know where pilot training will be to/from?

Many of the UK airlines use Prestwick for crew training. I would expect to see the bmi 330s there at some point.

Virgin A340s are regular visitors at the moment it seems

N175dz:
The dates have slipped from original plans. Expect two by end April, the third in May. The second of the three is to be op by Scandinavian.

Worldtraveller:
Correct, its a computer image.

BDRules/Englandair:
The aircraft will be late out of Toulouse, so there will be no time for a tour before they enter service. The route proving flights are ex-MAN.

Englandair/Scotty:
Crew training is largely already done courtesy of Airtours this last winter.

404 A330-243 G-WWBB

Anyway the first aircraft is in Star Alliance colours for use by SAS.
