Can anyone help list British Airways (& Cityflyers) weekend charter & seasonal flights from LHR & the regional airports? Thanks in advance.

No idea what's to come but have a look at BA source which lists all charter flights for mainline and cityflyer.

B A9134C/35C. Preveza. 320 / 321. Day 7
BA9136C/37C. Izmir. 320. Day 6
BA9216C/17C. Cagliari. 320/321. Day 6

BA9238C/39C. Bastia. 320. Day 6
BA9248C/49C. Figari. 319/320. Day 7


This year's BA CityFlyer Summer Charter Flights so far appear to be:

BA4473C/74C. Edinburgh / Mahon. 170/190. Day 6
BA4477C/78C. Edinburgh / Barcelona. 190. Day 5
BA4479C/80C. Edinburgh / Palma. 170. Day 6
BA4501C/02C. Edinburgh / Palma. 190. Day 6
BA4507C/08C. Glasgow / Genoa. 190. Day 7
BA4513C/14C. Humberside / Alicante. 170. Day 5
BA4515C/16C. Glasgow / Malaga. 190, Day 5
BA4517C/18C. Glasgow / Mahon. 190. Day 5
BA4521C/22C. Glasgow / Palma. 190. Day 6
BA4525C/26C. Glasgow / Malaga. 190. Day 6
BA4527C/26C. Glasgow / Alicante. 190. Day 6
BA4531C/32C. Glasgow / Palma. 190. Day 7
BA4533C/34C. Glasgow / Palma. 190. Day 6
BA4535C/36C. Glasgow / Salzburg. 190. Day 6
BA4547C/48C. Edinburgh / Palma. 190. Day 5
BA7031C/32C. Glasgow / Lourdes. 190. Day 6. (One off pilgrimage flight? Out 21, back 28 May)
BA7033C/34C. Bournemouth / Venice. 190. Day 6. (Positioned from GLA)
BA7035C/36C. Bournemouth / Palma. 190. Day 6. (Positioned from GLA)
BA9783C/84C. Isle of Man - Mahon - Isle of Man. 190/170. Day 6. (Positioned from EDI)
BA9791C/92C. Aberdeen - Malaga - Aberdeen. 190. Day 6
BA9795C/96C. Aberdeen - Palma - Aberdeen. 190. Day 7

Here it is worth remembering that the CityFlyer's E 190 seat pitch is 34 inches in order to keep the total seat numbers below 100. I somehow doubt that there are many other European summer charter flights operating with such generous leg space.

Quoting Richard28 (Reply 3):

Yes, several in fact. But these are BA scheduled flights that can be booked by anyone, not charters. They utilise spare weekend capacity in the CityFlyer fleet which exists because LCY closes from lunchtime Saturday to lunchtime Sunday. In the same way a CityFlyer aircraft that weekends in Dublin operates seasonal "bucket and spade" flights for Aer Lingus, but again these are scheduled flights and anyone can book them..

So far the only charter flights operated by BA CityFlyer from STN have been Winter Ski Charters. An example was BA7031C Stansted / Salzburg.

However from 28 May BA CityFlyer has positioned a single E-Jet at Stansted to operate the following sequence of scheduled flights:

BA2291. d. STN 06:45 Day 6. a, IBZ 10:15
BA2290. d. IBZ 11:00 Day 6. a. STN 12:30
BA2293. d. STN 13:15 Day 6. a. AGP 17:15
BA2292. d. AGP 18:00 Day 6. a. STN 19:50
BA2295. d. STN 20:45 Day 6. a. PMI 00:15 (+1)
BA2284. d. PMI 01:00 Day 7. a. STN 02:30
BA2297. d. STN 05:40 Day7. a. FAO 08:30
BA2296. d' FAO 09:05 Day 7. a. STN 12:00

From 19 June BA CityFlyer (following the delivery of an additional E 190) is planning to launch a three-times-daily TXL-LCY-TXL (BA8490/91, ba8492/93 and BA8494/95) service. Associated with this service will be a scheduled TXL-STN-TXL (BA2298/99) service operating late on Day 5 and departing at lunchtime on Day 7. This is effectively a positioning flight for the services detailed above. It also has the economic advantage of not leaving a flight and cabin crew in Berlin over the weekend.

I find Man - Menorca funny.

The two islands are quite similar in size/population

Man: 572 km2 84,497
Menorca: 695.7 km2 94,383

I reckon Manx people do not like big busy islands.

Omitted that the aircraft operating this rotation is positioned from EDI.

As a Manxman I can say that we do like "big, busy islands".... Virtually all the flights from Ronaldsway are to much bigger and busier islands! One limited series E170 charter a week is hardly representative of Manx travel habits.

BTW......it's the Isle of Man in day to day speech; Mann is used occasionally in a historic context, but never 'man'.

BACF will also operate this summer

BA4519C/BA4520C - EDI-SZG-EDI Day 6, starting later this month

They will also operate a weekly charter throughout the summer for the tour operator Alpetour which will operate EDI-MXP-EDI, unsure of flight numbers though
