Re: Novotel & Travelodge at BHX. The Novotel is in the Terminal area and has no views over the apron or runway. The Travelodge is on the Cargo Terminal side next to the new Control Tower, 50% of the rooms have views over the airport. I have stayed in the Travelodge, if you check in reasonably early or contact the hotel beforehand, explain that you are an aviation enthusiast, they will accommodate you in an airport view room if they can.

Hope this helps.

Hi! I am taking the same flight back.  
However, I will arrive at BHX Monday morning, then taking the 12:00 flight with the DC-10, making this a day of aviation-frenzy...

I am on the 0900 BG2 on the Monday. I also arrive (probably by rail) on the Sunday and will be flying back to EDI on FlyBe on the Monday at 1450 so will probably miss you at the airport later.

Re: Novotel & Travelodge at BHX.

I found this.

Travelodge Birmingham Airport Hotel is located overlooking the Cargo/Exec Terminal on Terminal Road just off theA45. Short taxi ride from the airport and NEC. WIFI in rooms at a charge.Breakfast and evening meals, bar available at hotel other than that short drive or taxi ride to Solihull for more variety. Long stay parking at £7.50per 24hrs.

I hope someone will catch pictures of the landing of the very last scenic flight.

Quoting MadameConcorde (Reply 108):

It will be dependant on the runway in use at the time. Runway 33 approach is nearer the hotel, best bet is the NCP car park in the Cargo Terminal area which I referred to in post # 90 which is a short walk from the Travelodge. The light is best from this side of the airport in the afternoon.

Thank you.

Many of us will be taking part in this adventure inside and out so we will all be able to share our pictures and comments. We will also have those from the FT crowd.

The more, the merrier!

Hello All,

Would anyone be interested in a possible Estonian Air EMB-170 flight from BFS - BHX on the 23rd FEB Leaving Belfast at 2000 Local???? Ticket prices would start around GBP 49.00 per person.

I would have been had I not already made my travel arrangements. Seems like a good opportunity to fly on a different airline.

Will this aircraft be making a night stop at BHX on the 23rd do you know? Would be nice to get a photo of that scheme.

Yes quite possibly, if I can get to BFS on flights which tie up.

I see two easyJet flights BHX-BFS for 55ish on sunday. The 18-19.05 is a bit too tight to mention.
Maybe nice, maybe a bit of hassle, might be nicer to try them on a longer and hardly more expensive flight to eastern Europe instead.

I was all up for the DAC-BHX flight, but am having to restrain myself due to other flying priorities this year - particularly filling the blanks in my log such as the HS748, YAK-40, YAK-42, etc. I've flown the BG DC-10 a few times though so have not missed out on it.

Are the remaining seats on the DAC-BHX flight going to be on public sale as well?

Non-member Martin W asked me to post that he will be on the BG4 at 1200 on Saturday, so he can be added to the list.

Quoting Dc1015 (Reply 128):
Well this potentially takes the shine off the celebrations of the weekend.

It shouldn't make much difference. For sure this DC-10 won't see any other revenu flight, either passengers or cargo, after this weekend. It might end up in the dessert or flown to another museum or only the cockpit might remain somewhere as a movie prop. But anyway it wouldn't be the last DC-10 flight, with FedEx and the USAF continuing to operate theirs for years to come.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Do I understand that Biman would rather sell the aircraft to a breakers yard at metal cost rather than donating her to the Seattle Museum of Flight??

This would be a real shame!

Whilst it will not make any difference to the events of the weekend, it is regrettable that the possibility of preserving a complete DC 10 now appears in doubt. The fact that the aircraft in question is the penultimate airframe produced is also quite significant.

The information in the article appears to suggest that it is more a case of, "No room at the inn," than a lack of interest on Biman's part. They still appear to be keen to see it preserved, but the Museum of Flight seem not to have enough room for the aircraft.

From a purely personal point of view, I find it sad that the opportunity to preserve the aircraft now appears likely to have to end at a breakers yard. Hopefully a favourable solution will be found before the CofA expires in May.

If it does go to the breakers yard, is it more likely to be in UK, (such as Kemble) or a yard in the USA.

If it is in the UK, there are more likely to be pictures as Kemble is more accessible.

Quoting cedarjet (Reply 49):
BG HQ are very responsive to emails. If you are unhappy with your booking, contact the airline and they will fix the issue.
Quoting SwissCanuck (Reply 50):
They haven't been with me. I contacted the "sales" and "Ticketing and Reservations" emails listed on their web site. If you'd like to suggest an address that gets a quicker response I'd be grateful.

Is anyone else having trouble getting a credit card accepted? After a successful booking on Jan 14, using Dutch somethingorother-bank, now Biman are unable to process my credit card using K-Bank for a subsequent booking. My friend and I have tried 4 or more valid cards to no avail. No answer to 3 e-mails to practically everyone at Biman. So does anyone know how to get through to them? Is there a third-party website that does bookings a-la-Travelocity? Never has an airline tried so hard to NOT take my money.

Quoting dba4u (Reply 92):
Fiiiinally I found a credit card K-Bank would accept...

What type of card did they finally take?
I didn't get a 'Harumph' outta that guy!

Mine was a German Visa card with "Verified by Visa" enabled. Perhaps that's the sort of thing you need to activate in case you don't already use it.

Dito. Exactly the way it worked for me, too.

I think it comes down to whether MasterCard 'Secure Code' or 'Verified by Visa' is enabled on the card you're using, as my MasterCard was rejected because my card issuer didn't take part in 'Secure Code,' yet my Visa Debit card which is enrolled in 'Verified by Visa' worked fine.

Late to the thread, but I've been booked for a few weeks... BG2 on 23rd Feb!

Apparently each passenger will be given a certificate signed by the Captain, there will be commemorative caps and T-shirts on sale at the airport, plus other memorabilia. There will also apparently be 'enough safety cards' in case anyone is concerned about that!
