Flight News Monthly

Flight News Monthly finds deals on AerLingus and finds Ryanair and Bmi down and out.  What else do we have in store for you?  How about the world’s biggest mistletoe, a bar in a control tower and the first ever bio-fuel passenger flight?

Deals on Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus is offering loads of flights on sale from Gatwick to Europe including Eindhoven, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Faro, Warsaw, Malaga and Tenerife from as low as £29.99 if you are travelling from 6 January to 24 March.  Visit www.aerlingus.com.

Bmi closes routes
Bmi is cutting some fat and canning its routes to Tel Aviv, Brussels, Kiev, Aleppo and Amsterdam.  All of these changes will take effect before March 2010.

Latest news at Manchester Airport
Manchester is gaining a new night-time hot spot that is poised to rival the most dominate after-hours establishments in town.  What does this have to do with Flight News Monthly you ask?  The new and uber trendy bar will occupy a defunct control tower at Manchester Airport giving amazing panoramic views of the surrounding Cheshire countryside.

World’s largest mistletoe
Have you been to Terminal 5 at Heathrow yet?  If you are headed there be sure to have some Chapstick and mints close at hand as Heathrow unveils the world’s largest sprig of mistletoe!  Happy Kiss-Mas everyone!

First bio-fuel flight
KLM hit the headlines this week when they flew the first ever bio-fuel and jet fuel passenger flight.  The KLM Boeing 747 circled over the Netherlands carrying a load of jet fuel mixed with sustainable bio-fuel.  Onboard were 40 passengers, mostly politicians, airline and city officials.

Ryanair is Worst Family Brand
Ryanair was slammed with a dose of bad press when it was named Britain’s “Worst Family Brand”.  Granted, the small pole included only 1,500 people and joining Ryanair at the bottom of the family-friendly barrel are Bmi and bmibaby.

    Ryanair’s policy to charge children more than adults to put off families from using them. That way there are only adults boarding, so boarding is quicker, and they make more money. that’s all.

    With Ryanair you only get what you pay for, so I am not surprised to hear that they are at the bottom of most every service-based barrel, however I will say they are punctual and affordable. Again, you get what you pay for.
