Hello! ALC-STN also appears in the document of the timetable for S17 but in the 2 frequencies appears an asterisk. Do you know what that means? Thanks

A greeting!

Does anyone know if this is a complete list of the offering for next summer or will there be more to add in due course with other carriers for example. In particular I am thinking of Brs and cwl. It appears that Brs has lost a few flights so far

This is what we were told this week. I'm assuming LTN will be W flights. TCTO are trying to get seats on the likes of NCL-AGP and ALC to restart operations. They can't get the beds in resorts so are having to restart operations to these resorts slowly, this is why they can't put a TCX a/c onto the route. I would imagine more routes will be announced during the summer

There is no mention of MAN-SFO in the long haul section although there were indications/expectations some weeks ago that this route would commence in 2017.

Has there been any confirmation, official or otherwise, that SFO will operate?

Historically Thomas Cook always seems to avoid operating aircraft into Luton. I don't know why that is but I can't ever remember a year when they have.

Indicates that it will operate part season, rather than May to October. Based on this year's Stansted programme, it would seem that an extra aircraft is based for the English school six week holiday period (possibly GLA based rest of season).

Anyhow it's good to see a charter service to ALC from Stansted. It's been some years since BY and BWL used to operate the route.

I noticed several flights in the S17 timetable were marked with an asterisk, what does that mean?

Well you could have added the word asterisk before the word indicates than none of us would have been confused��

But how on earth did he/she/them get on the aircraft in the first place. Someone not doing their job.

Gate staff are paid a pittance. Airlines have screwed down airport charges so much that airports turn their terminals into shopping centres and theme pubs.

It always staggers me that the economics of an industry which is always telling us that "safety is our first priority" is so economically linked to alcohol consumption - pathetic.

The Gate staff are trying to board 100-200 passengers as quickly as possible as mandated by the airlines. Unless someone is completely legless or shouting, they probably wouldn't notice if someone is boarding drunk.

You sure about that??..last time out of Liverpool, the gate staff let exactly one of those through. He was stopped by the despatcher at the bottom of the stairs and denied boarding.I agree a difficult job, but why should the paying public have to run the risks of these buffoons.

Because the paying public don't want to pay to have the job done properly.
