Does that mean Helvetic will be moved off the route? Their 100-seat Fokker 100s seem the perfect size aircraft for the BHX operation (the CS100 will have 121 seats and the CS300 145 seats—7 more than an A319).
Swiss seem very flexible when it comes to aircraft size (they used an A319 this morning), so the fact we hardly ever see anything other than F100s outside half term holidays indicates that the numbers aren't brilliant.
This is a welcome move given their stagnation in the past, but can we get decent LF's on the larger aircraft?
According to airlineroute.com Swiss will stop using the Avro RJ100 on 28th October 2017.
They will be using this aircraft type 6xweekly from BHX(I assume the evening LX424/5)until 27/10/2017.
Another aircraft type to start disappearing from our airports over the next few years.
