LH is clearly trying to bring bmi back from the brink but it's still losing money hand over fist according to WPS (though he doesn't use those words).
Any rash, speculative, expensive expansions...

Busiest for leisure travel - quietest for business travel.
Looking at the midhaul routes that bmi fly to, I'd guess it might be the quietest time of year as they cant get much leisure volume to the...

I take your point about the return element but I'm sure if BD65 regularly had 24 full fares there's no way they'd be cancelling it.
BD65 always seems to me to be an off-peak cheap fare special, with...

Then we're agreed as I said that a 60 or 70 minute connection i.e. undercutting the 75 minute MCT, would result in the airline taking no responsibility for lost baggage - even on the same ticket....

The 45 minute MCT is a red herring - no airline uses it as it's clearly unworkable (BA did many years ago as I recall). The standard (workable) seems to be 75 mins from my experience so a 60 or 70...

45 minutes is the official time but no airline I've connected with in T1 uses it as it's way too short. I know bmi use a standard 75 mins across the board if that helps?

Maybe they're not so stupid after all - the clocks go back in Egypt overnight Thursday 20Aug - hence 1610 becomes 1510.

Rather than negative speculation l'd like to start by guessing what real benefits the new technology (to bmi) might bring!

Apparently all the A321 will eventually have the BA cradle seats replaced and business class reduced to 28 seats for more legroom with improved IFE (AVOD). Still a shortfall in seat numbers so must...

Bad news - according to my bmi pal it's in EMA being turned back to an ordinary 320 again:(
Apparently the business class seats will appear again on an ex-BMED 321 - replacing the BA cradle seats.

I'd assume the full refund and book it yourself now - before the rush!

Did it just operate for the 2004 summer season? I have no recollection of it operating any other year.[/QUOTE]

The route is not in the winter 2004 pocket timetable so it looks like summer 04 only.
