BA4506??



Spotted this during my usual night time FlightRadar spotting.

British airways flight BA4506 from Chambery to Edinburgh?
Never heard of that route or flight number. Any idea what that flight is? Wouldn’t mind a cheeky redemptions direct to France!

It's a winter route using the cityflyer fleet when lcy is shut at the weekends. There's also a summer route to Florence I believe.

Because it's cityflyer there's no byob either

Actually it's a charter flight for Crystal Ski Holidays/TUI, and the service is buy on board (but not M&S).

Some of these weekend ski charter flights operare in "stealth" mode. They don't show up in flight radar. Example is the Edinburgh to Verona ski charter.
Not suggesting anything underhand about that, it just makes it harder to track the progress of friends using those flights!
