    Route Development & Rumours

    I was talking to some Canadian friends last week who have lived in Birmingham for twenty years and travelled to Goa at Christmas from MAN. They are gong to Goa again at half-term and they discovered from someone that they could fly from BHX and that is what they are doing. I don't know who my...

    Flybe/Virgin Connect

    Are people still booking with Flybe given their position at the moment? I am thinking of going to Orkney during the summer via Aberdeen, but will there be any flights and if so, who with?

    Route Development & Rumours

    I seem to remember in the '90's flights to Orlando were numerous from BHX: double figures? What caused a reduction? Reducing loads, rationalisation or both?

    Flying from Brum? Tell us where you're going

    I came back from Paris last week with Flybe and found that the the e-gates were barred to "British passports" according to staff at the gates. I was shocked.

    I'm sitting on a Flybe flight at Paris wondering when we will be allowed to take off. Should have been airborne at 14.50 local time.

Ten days before our flight to New York, Primera cancelled its flights out of...

    Blue Air

    No need to apologise, it seemed like a slight on British farmers!!

    Blue Air

    Far from it, but I see what you mean. Not a cheap six-day holiday but well worth it. Romanian tourism is on the rise and Transylvania, the richest part of Romania, is well worth a visit: stunning scenery, a number of UNESCO heritage sites, Dracula of course at Bran Castle. Bucharest airport is...

    Blue Air

    I returned from a tour of Transylvania and Bucharest yesterday flying with Blue Air. Outward and inward flights were full and I and my partner were part of a group of 27 on the flight. I did not get to know everyone in the tour group ( another 22 arriving from LHR made up the entire group)...

    Emirates

    My Australian niece was not overly impressed with BHX last week. She arrived from Dubai on a fully laden A380 to a 50 minute wait for luggage and 2 officials on UK border control. Must do better.
