The artist's impression outside looks like it will be a magnet for 'slips, trips and falls' claims.

But unless more UK Border Staff are deployed, the queues will still be as long as ever, but in a nice new building.
to be fair I have flown out of Stansted a few times in the last few months and I have not seen any significant queues at Immigration. I know that its all about the time of arrival but its nowhere near as bad as it was a year ago.

Good move from Eurowings, timings could have been better as all flights arrive late into Munich so weekend breaks would be hard. Filling the void easyJet left when they reduced frequency in favour of Luton.

Yes STN Ramp Rat.....Jet2 describing customer reaction as "phenomenal"..Are also adding extra frequencies on 4 already announced routes taking the number of seats available ex STN for Summer 17 now to 875,000 = +8% over the original announcement...SS

I wonder who's losing out to Jet2. May explain why RYR are hurriedly moving into the holiday package business.

I think the biggest ones to take a hit at STN from this are the likes of Thomson and Thomas Cook.

At Luton there is a rumour that Thomas Cook may base a plane in 2018. Could one be leaving stansted and moving to LTN???

Which could mean that LTN could benefit from those airlines in S18.

Not that I want to start the old STN v LTN thing again but what really would Thomas Cook gain by partly moving to LTN? Part of the benefit of having 3 aircraft based is that they can offer more flexible durations and more destinations. It's not as though LTN is short of competition either (assuming Monarch stick around).

If I were Thomas Cook and had a spare plane laying around I'd make it 4 aircraft at STN and compete with Jet2 by adding some new destinations rather than put one into LTN.

From years of experience on here it's clear a lot of rumours are just individuals 'wish lists' often made up on here.

There are few regulars who actually know their stuff and you begin to know who they are over time.

Nothing to do with a wish. I'm telling you what I've been told and with Thomas Cook planning to do a Ibiza and Menorca but not having the plane availability at the moment. Not trying to throw anything into the mixer but just saying that Thomas Cook are looking at planning on basing a plane at LTN in 2018. This may be a plane from somewhere else or a new one or moving it from stansted due to the high competition. Jet2 are doing a very good job of pushing all airlines at stansted and what a gem for stansted to have. What it could of been for LTN if Jet2 had enough space to park any planes.

And the source of your 'rumour' please Boeing737-8?

I'm guessing that it's probably the first anyone has heard of it.

I think Boeing 738-8 is a perfect example of what you describe in your post 3775!

A bit odd as well that 737-8 broke this big LTN news here rather than in the LTN thread, purely a coincidence I suppose that it followed good news of a new based aircraft and five new routes.
