Maxjet to Vegas

It seems that Maxjet have a small problem from tomorrow's flight to Las Vegas they are running out of planes. They have one tec and flights running late to JFK. They need an aircraft in STN for 1300 local tomorrow to run the flight to Vegas. Will it be late or on time. This is Maxjet so anything is possible.
Maxjet have a new plane. Well new to them and once agian it is from the desert. So sand everywhere.

Golden City/Mapjet

Noticed a few MPJ flights of late from Vienna, my search has thrown up very little info other than an article in German from Google that states they have commenced flying from STN (as well as LGW and CGN) under the name of Golden City to Mumbai, and from December will add Goa, Gochin, Jaipur and Amritsar connecting through Vienna. The article also says that these flights have been financed by the same man that has taken over Air.

Does anyone have any info on these flights? It seems a bit odd that there has been no announcement and no promotion. They appear to operate in addition to the Air Slovakia flights, but info on those is sketchy too. You would think for flights to India there would have been a lot more said.

Have you noted that according to STN these flights are no-stop,
and take 3.30 hours! (Slow or what)

Stanstedeye, some GM flights op o/b via BHX so 3:30 is about right. However clearly non-stop is wrong, and the timetable seems inaccurate on some of the other timings.

The Grauniad: Council set to reject Stansted expansion

The dangers of climate change will be used this week as a reason to ditch a plan to double passenger numbers at London Stansted airport, the home of Ryanair. A local council is expected to turn down planning permission, partly on the grounds that the Stern review and other studies have highlighted the danger of rising carbon emissions.

The move will be a huge blow to operator BAA and its new parent company Ferrovial of Spain, which paid 10.5bn for the airports operator earlier this year. It also highlights the contradiction in government policies between encouraging aviation - a major carbon dioxide polluter - and trying to halt global warming.

Planning officers from Uttlesford district council, the local authority for Stansted, have recommended the application be dumped when the development control committee meets on Wednesday. "The importance of climate change as a global issue and the mounting research evidence to support a policy review has increased in recent months. Given all the emerging information, coupled with the timing of the Stern review in the course of the application, it is considered that it would be premature to grant planning permission," says their report.

There should at least be clarification by the government as to whether part of its response to Stern and other recent research will be to withdraw or amend its air transport white paper, they add.

Council officers also refer to last year's Tyndall Centre report showing that the rapid growth in air travel threatens to wipe out the other savings in carbon emissions; and they highlight a recent report from Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute which called on the government to confront the contradictions in its policies. The institute concluded: "Unless the rate of growth in flights is curbed the UK cannot fulfil its commitments on climate change." The council officers have recommended rejection on eight other grounds too.

The expansion of Stansted's terminal building would be expected to lift the total number of regular passenger and cargo annual flights through the Essex airport from 186,000 to 265,000.

Your security check was not done by a Labourer from LPL.

The BAA have asked them and many other companies I believe to assist loading the bags on to the xray so to free up the trained BAA Security Staff.

the BBC now confirm the report from the Guardian:
Stansted expansion plan refused BBC
Expansion plans for Stansted Airport which could boost passenger numbers have been rejected, amid objections including the effect on climate change. Uttlesford Council turned down BAA's planning application to increase passenger numbers to 35m a year.

Runway capacity - sectorisation

As some observers will have understood the growth of Stansted and Luton is pulling traffic from Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London, traffic that makes a surface journey north to then, in 85% of cases, fly back south.

Terminal, runway and ASK capacity should be developed such that it reflects overall direction of air travel and thus reduces DOC/CO2; Sectorisation.

With some incentives, FR might consider using Kent International Airport as well, I guess. Could be a noteworthy solution, don't you think?

Jersey Connection

Stansted will lose its connection with Jersey in the Channel Islands again.

The new owners of Atlantic Express made the annoucement yesterday afternoon that as of the middle of January the service will be terminated (Nice Christmas presant for all concerned)

The Jersey route has seen a number of Schedule carriers over the last thirty years on the route to name some like Jersey European, Flybe,Air Uk, KLM U.K ,Aurigny Air Services and last but least Atlantic Express.

With Air Berlin making a large presence at Stansted and operating a number of U.K. domestic services would this one attrack them with a Fokker 100 servic?.

Very disappointing news the Jersey Aurthorities are trying to encourage new routes but they dont seem to be able to keep what they have.

The CAA annouced on the 12th of December the Atlantic Expess has now there own A.O.C. then this happens.

Went through the staff entrance today at stansted I could not believe how rude the Ryanair staff were being treated by BAA. Its ridiculus this poor girl must have been only new in the company was been shouted out, then someone else was. Its awful is it anywonder Ryanair get so many complaints about the staff when they are treated like that as they are comming in to work by BAA. Is it just Stansted that the BAA staff are rude and ignorant or is it a general thing

Pabely , I have to say that I understand your comment that the Thomsonfly Luton Jersey flight will make that a no brainer, but i am not fully in agreement. Air Berlin are flying STNBHD and the flights have not effected any Easyjet flights between Belfast and STN or LTN for that matter. However, the only airline that seems to be effected is bmi BHDLHR. So i cant see there being any difference in a STNJER link. many of the passengers would go via STN to germany and cheaply too as has probably been the case on BHDSTN route.

There is a good distance between LTN and STN and the catchments in each area should be well able to support individual services. It will be the passengers that originate in Jersey that wont mind which of the two airports that they land at ?

By the way does anyone know if the passengers that fly Jersey London are mainly Jersey originating or UK originating.....Proportion??
Happy new year everyone!

Grrr

20 years ago, Jersey was a major draw for tourists, today many of the Guest Houses and Hotels have been converted into apartments and offices mainly for the financial services industry which has grown considerably in size.

As the tourist numbers have declined, the prices for available rooms on Island have remained very high, thus making Jersey a very expensive destination compared to the likes of Prague, Riga, Budapest etc for those looking for a short break.

I priced a weekend away in Jersey compared to Budapest on a number of dates last year and on average, Jersey worked out 75-100% more expensive.

Jersey is a limited market, which by its nature has a peak 4 months during high summer. A daily 737 from Luton seems excessive capacity, but we will see what the loads are like, and if the yields are good the service might continue throughout the year?
