Cheers for sharing this Le Tigre. This is a great pity really, but interesting point about the fuel price locally. This is odd as Ghana is an up and coming oil exporter, indeed over 70 000 barrels per day, and its fields are becoming more productive! I suppose though that it is Jetfuel they need, not crude!

Also shows they VS cannot rely on just O&D traffic. BA however have increased capacity on the route in the recent years, using 777 these days as opposed to 767, and there is more competition these days, with TAP, Iberia & Turkish also now flying there, albeit with 319/320/737.
