Air Blue to start flights from Birmingham!

Air Blue, the Pakistani airline, are beginning flights from the 28th September to Lahore and Islamabad from Birmingham, using Airbus A340-300's:

Flights will operate twice a week. With this annoucement, BHX will have the following airlines offering connections to the middle east/sub continent:
  • Emirates
  • Air India
  • PIA
  • Air Blue
  • Turkmenistan 
  • Turkish Airlines
Turkish and Emirates do offer other onward connections (eg the far east and Australia) but I imagine the main focus of all of these is India and Pakistan traffic: is there too much capacity now? On a Saturday night, BHX will now have on the ground simultaneously 2 777's, a 787 and an A340! I hope arrivals can cope...
