How is BA doing on LHR-SEZ ?

Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:38 pm

How are bookings going on this fairly new route, the flight timings look good and they are offering First Class, must be popular with crew. With Virgin dropping Cancun next year wonder if they could be tempted to give it a try. The Virgin Holiday brand is popular with Honeymooners and SEZ is great for that.

Seychelles is doing well, loads are consistently good and the First cabin often has healthy loads - although there are only 8 seats to fill on the 787-9.

Not sure if Virgin would try it - BA only fly it twice per week, it's a good route for an aircraft that has some spare capacity, otherwise it might not make much sense.

I hadn't realised Virgin were dropping Cancun - that explains BA going from 3 per week last summer to 5 per week for summer '19.

While we're in the Indian Ocean region, just want to know too how the LGW-MRU route by BA is doing. For the Northern Winter season, British Airways will be operated 5 times weekly instead of 3 base weekly operations. Air Mauritius also operates 3-4 weekly flights to LHR and while TUI operates a weekly flight to MRU from LGW. Thomas Cook also operates bi-weekly charter flights from MAN and LGW. Overall, there can be up to 12 weekly flights per week between UK and Mauritius though a great number of the 150,000 British tourists still use other hubs to travel to Mauritius.
