It's probably no coincidence that the commercial heads at BMI were also the commercial heads at Flybe and Monarch and we all know how those have faired of late. That's got to be one of the factors as well as Brexit uncertainty, ageing fleet requiring heavy maintenance, loss of contracted flying. My ...Jump to post

Pricing errors resulting in people being able to book a return ticket for less than 2-300 Euro return on much of their long haul network may have been a contributing factor.

I am wondering if you know of any alternatives to Sabre AirVision Fares Manager, fare management software.
What would you say are the best systems out there?
If there is a more appropriate forum to post this, please let me know.
Any idea how much longer the 74D will be in service? Or how many are in service? What routes do they currently operate? Does anyone have a breakdown for ANA routes?

I think there should be 2 constituent parts to the cost of a ticket, internal costs and external costs, with a clear line drawn between the two, i.e. external are 3rd party such as airport charges, government charges, and internal being all the costs the airline incurs to transport passenger from A ...Jump to post
It is no secret that the new owners of bmi regional would like to rebrand the airline into something more Scottish. I wonder what the new name will be or the livery etc, does anyone have any good suggestions? I would like to see something fresh, clean and professional. Maybe not too geographical in ...Jump to post
if you book far enough in advance, you can get a better deal, much better than the 400 you quoted. There are also sale fares available, but of course you must be flexible and keep an eye out for them. With the regional service of bmi, you do get a comprehensive product, so once you factor in the ext...Jump to post
Are many UK airlines doing nightstops on the continent? What airports see the most? I understand it allows for extra early rotations inbound to UK but are crew costs the primary factor which is considered? slots perhaps?Jump to post
Those who did apply for Olympics tickets will find out in June officially, but I am keeping a sneaky eye on my bank account to see if any money has gone out.

from a passenger perspective journey dration can be a factor, so the shortest journey may be preferable, even though the possibility of missing a connection may not be fully considered. I have missed connection where inbound flights are delayed, or where baggage has not reached the final destination...Jump to post
The airport will promote the MCT as a marketing tool, if the airline is off schedule it is their own fault, but if they are on time and baggage etc does not make it, then the airport will be held responsible provided the baggage or buses or whatever other service the airport has control over, fails.Jump to post

I too have noticed the distinct lack of all in ~ £1 fares sans check in fee, they seem to be pursuing a different strategy of late. The switch from electron to pre paid visa and check in charge appear to be the turning point in their business plan.Jump to post
Im not going to read the above 194 posts, but what i will say is that after being an avid F1 fan for several years, this start to the season was so very boring!
