Isn't that the idea, make standard security so bad you'll miss your flight if you don't pay the 5. Then once that becomes accepted it's 10, then 20 next year, etc.

BA is claiming that all of the first weekend's flights have sold out and an additional frequency to Malaga has been added for August:

Given how tight the turnarounds are for these flights, I do hope the celebratory press release doesn't prove to be premature.

Seems to confirm my theory that there will be 2x e190 at STN with the second taking up this new AGP rotation. Be interesting to see the actual rotation of aircraft and crew

They have managed to fill 98 seater planes with fares starting from 98 return inclusive of taxes.

Good PR work there.

I was told that BA are looking at a Cityflyer base from MAN flying to some bucket & spade destinations over the summer months using aircraft from LCY.

Might be just speculation but I thought I would share it.

Don't think we would see the unions allowing cityflyer to operate longhaul to be honest as cityflyer don't have aircraft with the legs to reach NYC or ORD

AA already operate MAN to ORD and JFK, so it might be a slightly misinformed rumour and rather those AA flights will simply offer connections to the BACF Euro routes.

BA Connect did operate the 767 MAN-JFK before BACon was sold to flyBe

Or was it actually BA LHR based crew who operated that service after operating up from LHR ?

The cabin crew at least were Connect the 767 was MAN based and dedicated to the route

From what I've read these routes would switch from AA due to the slow down in new aircraft coming on property (which is true and public). They could easily be operated on a LHR-JFK-MAN-JFK-LHR etc circuit so it's all adding up to be not totally unfeasible - especially as Norwegian are rumoured to be launching the route so surely BA will soon follow!!
