The very high level of CE bookings on the Ibiza route make it a strange choice to use this plane type.
LCY-IBZ route and the CE service is extremely popular often operating with load factor of 95%+ throughout the summer. However it is a route that traditionally will have only 10%-15% of all available seats sold for the summer period at this point in the year. Notifying of a change of operator now makes sense as the flights being operated by Stobart will not be lucky if they have 1-2 CE pax already booked. The actual number of CE seats for sale was updated in the system by BA at the start of the week. So there will be no last minute downgrades due to the change of operator.

Seat maps on mmb are currently being updated and will show in the next day or two.
