Biman Has Updated Its Website

Fri Aug 29, 2003 2:53 am

Biman has updated its website.

http://www.bimanair.com

Still no online reservations (and I guess won't be for a while) and some sections need updating. However, I think it is a step in the right direction.

I love Biman's frequent flier scheme!

I went on their website ages ago, probably about 2 or 3 years ago - it's improved a lot since then!

Nice design and the website is already much better than Air India's one.

I like:

Well done Biman ...

Btw: I think it is also interesting to read that BG might start flights into Sydney, Jakarta, Manila and Toronto.

I've never seen such a detailed safety card as that DC-10-30 one Smile

Gabe,

Biman has been saying they want to serve Jakarta and Manila for many years, but I seriously doubt whether they can pull enough traffic for those routes. As for Sydney and Toronto, the recent flux of Bangladeshis moving to Australia and Canada probably could justify service there. I think Biman should think about expanding the New York service to Detroit, as many Bangladeshi now live there.

While they've upgraded their website, I hope they've also done the same to their maintenance. Many years ago now I was aboard a flight of Biman's from Tokyo to Dacca connecting with a flight to London. In Singapore, they had technical difficulties that lasted for many hours and not once let the passengers know what delays to expect, what the difficulties were etc. I lost confidence in the airline, was extremely annoyed and bored and in the end missed my connecting flight so overnighted in Dacca (that part was fun 'though) - which I paid for!

If an airline tries to settle technical difficulties on ground that's still better than they would let fly the plane like it is.

All airlines can have technical difficulties and so it happened to me on Malaysia Airlines (12 hrs delay) and Swissair (25 hrs delay).

I don't think that Biman has a big safety issue but I agree that a fleet update would be welcome.

If flying to MNL and CGK I'm pretty sure that they would try to attract the traffic between JKT and MNL to the Middle East as well and not only Bangladeshi pax.

Homely travel experience? Hmm... it's not vomit-inducing and madly improved. Homely experiece? Does that mean the aircraft never leave the country?

Lol, I'm pleased to see this update, it's vastly better than before.

It is a homely experience. Just look at the flight attendants. They need an English speaking person to proof their copy before putting it on the internet.
