It doesn`t mean much that. as I used to live next door to BA long haul crew in Stockport and they used to jump on the shuttle
a couple of days a week to Heathrow, always said the commute was easier than living in London and it was free

A few months ago when it arrived at BHX from Doha, I was waiting for a train at Bham Int and happened to be sitting near the crew who were on their way to New St. From the conversation it would appear that one might live in the midlands. With good rail links to BHX it may be that the aircraft is ‘based’ here between flights for ease of access. Perhaps it has some arrangement ? Might be wrong of course.
I had been wondering whether it was BHX based.

I believe Chelsea are to play Aston Villa in Abu Dhabi on December 11th in a friendly match. Wonder when and how they will travel ?

Encouraging news perhaps. Although it would need to be kept airworthy after a long period static since it got AOC license.
Yes, you are correct. In fact it did one right hand circuit, landing back after approx. 15 minutes or so, and returned to stand. On reflection more maintenance than training.

A few dummy bookings on the THY website show the normal seasonal upgrades. Haven’t checked all dates but the morning flight on Thursday 15th shows as an A333. Interestingly the economy shows as full with just 4 seats left in Business as at this morning. Thanks to ‘Turboprop’ also on the BHX spotters forum with further dates.
