BA back to Newquay

Looks like the new 6th rotation to Jersey has been pulled in light of the bmi announcement, so Newquay is back to plug the gap:

Once daily form LGW with the 737 fleet.

Cant see it sticking around very long to be honest.

That's GREAT news. Thanks for the heads up. ^ ^

Try and book it, and it changes NQY to "null", and it allows you to buy a ticket to "null" for 18 + tax.

Don't start.

Am I the only one that thinks this isn't such a bad idea?

Plenty of people fly to NQY these days. And I bet people will pay more than they would for a cheapie LGW-AMS flight, which is the same distance.

Just think how much nicer the BA staff will be compared to the FR ones

It won't offer a flight on Sat 24/3. So much for a daily service.

How about a flexible Y ticket for 340. No, seriously it's 340.

See if it gets ticketed - could be a magic open ticket to anywhere in the world. - like a blank cheque

Duh! just got back from Newquay (for Padstow)...on FR ...wish this had come a bit sooner - anything would have been better. Now for a return of BA flights to TLN where I'm stuck with blooming FR - not even worth the 0.01p

Nice that a BA 737 will be flying to NQY. What a difference from the Dash8 of years ago.

Will they have time for a drinks service I wonder?

Given that a First Open Return on FGW is 327, I'd say that's fairly competitive.

Having had the Hastings "best curry house in Britain" Do last year (much enjoyed by all who attended), NQY Do anyone ?

I'm assuming that Smirnoff and Swanhunter will join and embarrass themselves by leading us around all of their old teen hang outs!
