Volotea MD95 EI-FCB arrived yesterday to bring in the La Rochelle rugby team to play Sale Sharks. The game kicks off at 1pm today so I imagine we're looking at a 4pm to 5pm departure.

I saw this aircraft earlier when I was at MAN, it parked on stand 22, don’t the football flights normally go on remote and the teams get bussed out of the airport?

My load factor records show a flight on 21st July with 172 seats, against the normal 154, so I suspect this was a B739.

There you go. Not paid any attention to what's been operating on the route but encouraging with some substitute equipment used..

Today's Icelandair (TF-FIN) should be nightstopping as strong winds forecast for the rest of the day in Iceland (we're talking gusts of up to 100mph!)

Just noticed that Virgin have been using the A340-600 in the Atlanta service today. G-VFIT is scheduled back in tomorrow morning at 0755 on VS110.

Hi everyone

With reference to the above Bangladesh arrival later I can confirm the first inbound has 258 pax on board. That must be full or more or less full. BG have obviously been successful in setting up and selling the route. I will post a weeks figures next week.

Cheers from Sergeant Bilko.

Greetings Bilko, it's a while since we heard from you!

I believe the capacity on the B789 is actually 298, but an initial load of 258 is pretty good. I'm sure we all look forward to further updates.
