The flotilla of airlines now operating flights on behalf of British Airways is growing. BA is struggling with aircraft as it tries to utilise the Monarch slots it recently bought at Gatwick Airport (and which must be used or forfeited) as well as having other aircraft in maintenance for ‘densification’.
As far as we can tell, this is current list of airlines now flying on behalf of British Airways:
Germania (no Club Europe, free drinks and snacks in Euro Traveller)
Titan (with Club Europe, free drinks and snacks in Euro Traveller)
BA CityFlyer (an Embraer 190 usually working out of London City with 2×2 seating, with Club Europe, free drinks and snacks in Euro Traveller)
Aer Lingus (no Club Europe, free drinks and snacks in Euro Traveller)
The randomness adds a bit of extra excitement every time you book, although the impact services should already be showing at ba.com.
