Whoever handles them will have to make sure they have a few spare set of steps as im sure i can now count the servicable jetbridges on one hand and maybe even with a few to spare. If i was AA i would have a serious look at the state of STN and iron out any problems before operating from there but maybe this type of demmand may mean BAA pull thier finger out

Great news for Stansted. Finally, low cost fares to New York! When will you be able to buy seats on the STN - JFK route as you are not able to at the moment? Will also be nice seeing some AA 767 metal at STN.

On reflection Isle of Dogs to London City has more traffic signals than to Stansted - yes, really. If only because there isn't a single traffic signal between Isle of Dogs and Stansted.

From Prestons Road roundabout :

5 mins to Beckton
20 mins to M25
35 mins to Stansted approach road.

been doing it for many years.

With regards to ground handlers Servisair management where aware of the AA plans before the reports where released as there was talk last week of handling AA but to be honest at the time I thought nothing of it, but now hmm.

"35 mins to Stansted approach road"

Just out of interest, assuming you're driving your own car how long does it take you to get from the "approach road" to the check-in queue?

That's the relevant comparison surely?

Not long at Stansted, a few minutes. Go into the first short-stay car park, park near the footpath, and just walk up.

Now the long-term car park is something else. I don't know another airport where this is so far away (it must be 4 miles) or the connecting bus so pathetically organised. If using that I would double the time allowed.

And the "mid-stay" is the worst of all worlds; nearly short-stay prices and such a slow bus connection, and it's still a mile or more away. And because it doesn't get a lot of use the buses are now so infrequent.

When will these AA STN -JFK flights be on sale? There is no date on their website when they will be bookable. I am trying to put together a trip to the US in November and would like to know how much fares will be. BA and AA have some really good prices from LHR - JFK so would like to know when who to book with so I do not miss out on the seat sale. As STN is only 15 mins from my house a local departure would be much more attractive.

They were meant to go up on the AA website this weekend. They were released into the GDSs, however AA accidentaly entered the flights as Economy + First, rather than Economy + Business

There were quite a few other issues with the schedule update over the weekend too (various domestic flights being missed off aa.com entirely!) so this has had to take a backseat while they fix that mess.

Expect it online, with a bit of luck, some time tomorrow.

You are now able to book Aamerican Airlines new route from STN - JFK. With AA's latest offer you can get a return fare from STN - JFK - STN for only 206 inc all taxes and charges. I might have to start planning another NYC trip!

AA will have there own check-in staff

Had a little look around the net and AA are advertising for there own check-in staff at STN. So looks like there may only be a battle for the ramp contract.

Its seems that there will be no battle,its all cut and dried-Menzies will be handling them along with easyjet. One of their top managers seen being escorted around the undercroft areas.

As I understand it there was a 'slight' problem with the outbound TK on monday 16th. Anybody care to elaborate? Something to do with boxes rather than baggage.WAIT!!!!!! I hear them coming...........excuses, excuses, excuses....blah blah blah

I wonder what would happen if the TK outbound cargo was to be taken to the undercroft and put up the baggage reclaim belt

No, no surely that couldnt happen thats too stuped, it would delay the aircraft for over 2 and a half hours

Well done Swissport

No wonder Easyjet are going Blue at Stansted
