BD (BMI) stops flying to TLV as of 1/10
« on: November 29, 2009, 11:21:35 AM »
 info gotten off a few forums on flyertalk

 Seems Luftahnasa has axed a few of BMIs routes including its twice daily flights to/from TLV, Luf has purchased BMI as it has Austrian and Swiss

 So big deal you say how many of us live in London, well CO was showing free tkts being available to TLV by flying CO to LHR and BD from LHR to TLV, when they had nothing on their non-stops. sure it added a few $$$ to the cost (UK departure tax >:(,) but at least it allowed for additional options

 Seems LH is having BD return 2 of their A-330 wide-bodies that were used on the TLV routing

 Anytime an option goes away Im sad, even if I never used it before. BTW from some that have flown on BMIs 330 they said it was a great Biz seat way better then COs

they had a very nice BIZ on this route, and was very popular, they will also remove their BRU-LHR connection, which Virgin atlantic used to make a connection to their lhr-jfk flights....
