Is there a lack of A/C ? strange TFS will dep LPL via STN,
always thought it was a heavy route out of STN, and with it being
high season in TFS this comes as a shock.

LAS and BGI kind of surprised me as routes in the first place! Its a pity they didnt even get to start; bookings must have been really low

According to FlyGlobespan this arrangment is only from 1/11 till 21/12, then reverting to a direct flight.

Durham Base
Now that GSM have selected MME as a base with new short haul loco flights starting, there is a faint whisper on the aviation grapevine that longhaul from Durham is also on the cards? Could it be true? Surely longhaul would be better suited to NCL, or maybe not?

767 swapover

Perhaps something to do with the TLH, not sure but then again PT has been in the fleet for enough time to check out any little snaggy bits and because Maintrol is in EDI and most spares etc are sitting there then maybe thats why the new one is coming to Scotland first.
Looking forward to this addition and awaiting news on possibility of 2 X 757 arriving at EDI for the Toronto route too.

GSM Handling Agent - MME

Any idea yet who is handling GSM at MME? Aviance or Servisair?

The DUB-SNN-YHM will be operated by the GLA based a/c on a Fri.

The info on Jethros is not correct. The GLA - YHM is operated by the MAN a/c on a Fri ie: MAN - GLA - YHM and the GLA based a/c ferries to DUB empty and operates DUB - SNN - YHM.

Not sure where this Excel Ireland thing has come from.

Don't know the real truth in that GLAGAZ but then that's why it's on PPRuNe lol.
would it maybe a daily thing??
if it was then 2 would be justified for rotation.
dunno, FGS rumours re: new a/c change everyday anyway.

How is Manchester to Cape Town selling at the moment? Presumably the profit is going to come from the business cabin, so is this selling well?

Think the MAN-CPT is selling quite well. First 2 Sat flights in ECO going to CPT are sold out. First available flight in PREm-ECO is Sat 18th Nov (their 5 flight), and BUS is selling quite well - their first 2 flights are sold out.

GSM have released further S07 SH flights:

GLA-ATH weekly
GLA-PRG 2 weekly (demand for PRG must be dropping off now)

EDI-FCO 2 weekly (an increase in last year)

MME-TFS weekly

Looking at the flight times another evening flight will operate over S07. The TFS returns to base at 17.20, perhaps with ATH going out again for S07 if they made a profit on the route for S06.

They may also increase the base to 2 A/C if they have the resources. At the moment the plans are for 14 B737s for S07:

1 ABZ based
1 STN based
1/2 MME based
1 LPL based
6 GLA based
3/4 EDI based (possibly 5 EDI based inc. Jet2 A/C)

B767s:

3 B767 GLA based, 1 B757 GLA based
1 B767 MAN based, 1 B757 MAN based
1 B757 STN based
