Winter 2014 Schedule changes

Don't know what's coming yet but just noticed on Speedbird Club that they are advertising quote *BIG* schedule changes for Winter 2014 to start being loaded from Thursday:

The asterisks and capital letters suggest something significant but maybe I am reading too much into it

The BA 43/42 LHR-CPT rotation the F fare is over 5K each way compared to the 59/58 flights, so maybe they are going to downgrade the flight from a 747 to a 3-class 772

Advice for BA 125 customers affected by cancellations or schedule changes: standard customer guidelines apply
But no details on what will happen to BA125. Presumably it's turning into a direct LHR-DOH service. Is BAH being dropped or combined with a different destination?

It's in reference to passengers booked on BA ticket stock, not the flight number. All BA ticket numbers (16 digits IIRC) start with 125. AA is 001 (e.g.). Here's a list, though I cannot vouch for its accuracy, nor did I compile or publish it: http://www.kovrik.com/sib/travel/airline-codes.txt

Chennai (MAD) increasing to daily service, deploying the Boeing 787 (from 26 October)

This refers to people booked on a BA ticket, not on a particular flight (i.e. a ticket number beginning 125)

Addition of more Caribbean/Florida frequencies can possibly mean a little more award availability...

Yet CPT is going out rammed in every class and they have increased the S14 schedule to 10x/week so I doubt they will do this as a 777-200 is a huge decrease in capacity.....

Interesting some of the biggest reductions are MAN and EDI. I presume a bigger presence at LCY (for EDI) as well as the impact of little red is pushing these decisions. Also the reconfig of the shorthaul fleet will actually allow them to maintain capacity but reduce frequency on high frequency routes like EDI.

Winter 2014 Schedule changes

The 58/59 rotation has F flights for £2K each way, but the 42/43 the flights cost £5.2K each way. Certainly F bookings seem to be discouraged from the 42/43 flights. Just seems strange

I think a few jumbos with old first are going to be sold as club, hence why only F fares are available. I was told from a staff member it to do with putting old first on dedicated routes to minimise customer dissatisfaction. I was looking at PHX In first though the ex-Italy sales and it was coming in over 5K as well with no one book into first, I'm guessing their will be a few announcements soon.

But of course. Don't know why I jumped to assume it was BA125 rather than ticket stock.
