    Not really the first nail they have already put several in by canceling Boston, reducing and canceling some JFK as well as messing around with some of the Mediterranean routes and now put on an aircraft that seems to breakdown every other day. Appears the coffin is well on its way to completion.

    Hope to be proven wrong.

    Living south of Bham I don't want to travel either to Manchester or Heathrow for a transatlantic flight if there was a similar-costed flight from BHX and no worse aircraft than provided elsewhere. Indeed I was looking forward to a Primera flight to Boston! The Aer Lingus option would be better for me but even better would be that transport to our airport was improved dramatically for us all so that the option choice would be simple!

    I've been reading some reviews of Primera and whilst the vast majority of them are scathing, there are some very positive ones about the new A321's.

    In between the let downs, cancelled flights, hours on hold to a call centre only to be cut off, no replies to emails, subbed aircraft going tech, stranded pax, ruined holidays etc.......it seems that the new aircraft are actually pretty decent and the service on board appears to be good too.

    I'm probably clutching at straws here but I hope that they can weather the storm and once the new A321's are in full swing people will actually start being impressed.

    That or I'm still feeling the effects of last nights vino :hungover:

    Very similar reviews to WOW over recent years yet they seem to march on obliviously.

    Now we've seen some Primera wheels on the ground at BHX hopefully this forum can return to its previous optimism surrounding the airline. Surely it can only get better from here.

    @GliderPilot I haven't seen any Primera wheels on the ground if anything its a complete farce how can the fire service give a water salute to an airline thats not in Primera colours or their aircraft they have made a mockery of us so far

    There was/is a 737-800 YL-PSH in full Primera livery operating the inaugural short haul services this morning @Sam1988. Unsure what your point is.

    Yes @Sam1988 I really don’t get your point?!

    There is a fully branded Primera flight on the deck at BHX! I’m also unsure as to why you feel that a) Primera have made a mockery of BHX not b) that BHX is somehow better than Primera?!

    It's going to take quite a bit before I'd even consider giving them my money but I do hope that they can turn things around. As pointed out before, people have short memories these days and if the price is right they will come back.

    An update of the winter schedule and a hint of S19 would be nice.
