BMI Cancels Most Multi Coded Flight/Route Flybe Steps In And Saves The Day

Before the age of Alliances there was one flight that carried more codeshares than any other on the planet, I recall seeing once that the flight carried more than 21 potential code share designations. This was the morning BD LHR-LBA flight. BD had originally 2 slot pairs for this route (at $40 million) a pop – this was worth a heck of a lot more than the small number of pax who took the flight.

No more. BD – soon to be part of the burgeoning LH empire – has relinquished the route and turn the slots to something more profitable. In its place (at almost no charge for the slots!) Flybe will step in and run 3 daily nonstops from LBA-LGW on Q400 planes.

My things do change….
