I recall BA CityFlyer did wet lease a few Embraer 190s from Stobart a few years ago but i'm pretty certain this was just a temporary arrangement

Hi,

I think they provided some aircraft and crew for BA cityflyer in 2018/19

https://www.businesstraveller.com/bu...t-london-city/

but cannot find more detials on the specific routes.

This also removes EDI-DUB connections ( unless going via LHR on BA).

Regards

Not quite...BA have launched their OWN flights on those routes.

Yeah I just realised that. But arguably it is for Aer Lingus, BACF wouldnt be running temporary flights off their own back.

Yes these are BA44xx flights now bookable on ba.com with cash and with avios.

Looks like I am off to Belfast tomorrow evening!

I'm assuming the same is also true for the GLA-DUB connections?

Hi all

So when Norwegian started doing TATL flights, there was a significant dip in the cost of BA / AA flights to NYC.

Jet Blue just started LHR - JFK (although i think during a pandemic this is pretty nuts).. do you think this will have the same effect? I did just do a dummy booking and was surprised at how affordable their "Mint" service is (i looked at some dates in mid jan and flights were 1100).

Do you all think that once service resumes, we will be seeing competitive pricing from BA to return?

Whilst business travel remains light, I am sure we'll get competitive pricing from BA in Club for quite some time. Don't imagine Jet Blue will impact on this too much - well perhaps on that one route - but prices should stay keen for some time to get bums on seats

JetBlue will fly, at best, a couple dailies with a narrowbody aircraft. It's not that comparable with DY dumping a lot of capacity into LGW. I guess BA and AA will ensure they put the best they can offer, seat-wise, on the routes and let their larger bulk do the rest. Having said that, I hope JetBlue succeeds and remains on the market, it's good to have variety and competition.

Having flown JetBlue a few time within the US I've been impressed with them. I suspect unlike Norwegian they plan to compete on quality rather than price, not to say their prices are not keen.

Jota aviation have ceased operations over the Easter weekend. They were a charter airline and did used to occasionally operate for BACF at LCY in the past (as in this example Jota Aviation) so couldn't let it pass without a mention.

A shame. The RJ was always an interesting and now rare type to fly on.
