I would not necessarily know any more than anyone else on this Forum.

However BA, along with a number of other airlines including VS, is taking this opportunity to review bmi’s books (which IMHO have been rather expertly cooked over the past few years); ultimately I doubt BA would ever be permitted to buy the majority of bmi’s slots.

This was confirmed last week:

What is certain is that those slots will be taken by fewer shorthaul flights, whoever eventually ends up with them.
