Grrr

Did MAG also purchase all the land and housing that the BAA has been buying up over the last 20 years or so to facilitate runway 2? I am sure I read the BAA flogged it of in a separate deal?

An ex colleague held out selling his cottage somewhere close (near where the KAL jumbo dived into a lake) until he retired. Got a handsome cheque to go into his retirement kitty, BAA then rented it out pending demolision.

If Pegasus do move to Luton at least it would end the Luton fans argument that El Al would never move back to STN because the Jewish population is nearer Luton, as STN is the best airport for the Turkish contingent.

I'm not convinced personally, but you never know

Pegasus could benefit from a transfer to Luton. Aside from a bigger catchment area and better surface access, their current flight schedule would not conflict with Luton's busy periods, where capacity is limited.
No doubt LTN would offer an introductory deal to a new airline too.
It seems that the EZY flight to SAW is not bookable after March 2014, so there could be a ready-made market for them too, if EZY are in fact dropping the route.

Pegasus Airlines

Is it true Pegasus Airlines are pulling out of Stansted??
They are definitely staying as they have slots confirmed for next years summer schedule. What I have heard through the grape vine is that they will be handled by Swissport instead of Menzies.

But then I came across this...

Flights from STN - ADB & SAW are still bootable on the Pegasus Airlines website. I've just tried to make a booking for April 2014.

Could be an issue on STN website as the flights on Pegasus site, you know, the actual airline in question, are still bookable after March.

Yes a move could be possible but lets not count your chickens yet.

All flights from STN seem book able after March. I've just looked on the Pegasus Airlines website.

Pegasus flights are still bookable from Stansted on their own website and the Stansted website as well. No results on the Luton website and nothing mentioning Luton on the Pegasus website.

Somebody has put Pegasus on the Luton Wikipedia page but with no links or references to support it. The fact that whoever it is has put Ankara as a destination as well makes it seem even more questionable. Unless of course this relates to somebody who has seen this on here and decided to change it on Wikipedia anyway.

I'm not saying it won't happen. It wouldn't be the first airline to leave Stansted and move elsewhere but could I ask Boeing737-8 where you have heard about this??

Ok, timetable on Stansted website shows flights up until 13 April 2014, but flight bookings can be made through the whole of summer 2014 on both Stansted and Pegasus websites.

And did you really just say that the place where you have first heard about this is the "Luton thread"

Means nothing, I'll ask again. Where did you hear about Pegasus moving from Stansted to Luton???

Pegasus

Remember when MAG took over London's third airport and there were rumours of Wizz getting a poaching from London's fourth? Nothing happened.

Pegasus moving to Luton? Clutching at straws if you ask me.

Oh hang on... Wikipedia is FACT!

Looks like hostilities in the ongoing Luton v Stansted war are about to break out again - flak jackets on everyone...
