LHR-SNN still bookable from July 20 onwards on EI booking site. If they plan to suspend the route until September, when will they remove availability from the booking engine? I have August flights (booked with BA) that as of now still show as operating (per BA).Jump to post

Plenty of empty rows down the back for people to stretch out. PE had 12 passengers in a 40 seat cabin w...Jump to post
Checked seat map on my AA flights DFW/LHR/DFW next month and see it's changed from 772 to 77W. Guess that's another 772 now available for shorter segments. Checked loads and the 772 was not even close to full on any of the T/A flights.Jump to post
Flew DUB/LDY/DUB several times back in 1989/90 on EI Commuter Saab340 and can remember some flights where I was the only passenger. More relaxed times back then resulted in this av. geek being invited to the jumpseat for landing at LDY on one of those lone passenger flights. Happy times.Jump to post

BA193/192 (LHR/DFW/LHR) last operated Jul.19 and does not resume until Jul.27.
BAsource.com shows this as a cancelled service for the last few days.
I was curious why there is a whole week without (what I thought was) a daily service. Is July demand that soft or is it an equipment shortage?
