British Airways appears to be pulling back from its Summer regional flights.  In recent years, the airline has been using its Embraer 190 fleet from London City Airport – which has nothing to do at the weekend when London City is closed – to run flights from the regions to ‘Summer sun’ destinations.

In theory, the 2019 programme should be the biggest ever as a number of new Embraer aircraft are about to be delivered.  However, reservations for the following services have been closed:
