Is there some indecision at LPL with regards to their expansion plan? No planning applications have been made with respect to the expansion plan and the only bit of work related to the plan has been the purchase/demolition of a couple of properties at the end of the runway. One or two local contacts have expressed the view that given EZY's move to MAN and the looming credit crunch may have had a rather negative effect on Peel Holdings plans for the expansion of LPL...

Didn't peel come to a new agreement with easy that their new operation at MAN would lead to a new lpl-easyjet contract leading to the basing of 2/3 extra aircraft at LJL by 2010? Anyway, as you know plans for runway extension have no bearing whatsoever on commercial negotiations with LOCO operators.

Peel are a deadly serious operator and usually deliver.

Not sure if this has been covered before (its a long thread!), but whats goiing on with the passport control at Liverpool? Got in Sunday 11pm, and the place was an absolute joke.
Passengers were queued either up on the apron, almost 100m either side of the entrance to the terminal, as well as those joining the queue to passport control from intermally.
Other than the security/ safety aspect of having several hundred people on the apron, which is obvious. The fact that not all the passport desks were in operation either did not help, clearly last thing in the evening there is a rush as the last of the LO-Cos.
To compound this, both airline staff and disabled wheelchair users had the indignity of having to push their way through several hundred people queued up waiting for passport control, not a great situation for either.

This has clearly been going on some time, with special covers set up and printed forms appologiesing for delays...no doubt there were 'unforeseen' circumstances.

Unfortunately it happens from time to time and is generally outside the control of the airport - they don't control whether aircraft arrive on time or not and they don't control how many staff the UK Border Agency deigns to put on at any one time.

The size of the immigration hall is something the airport is responsible for. With 15 based a/c and a known peak arrival period at lunchtime and again about 11pm the airport should provide a hall capable of dealing with more than half an a/c load. One of the UKs fastest growing airport in terms of pax numbers, loads of new retail development but a pathetically unsuitable immigration hall

Liverpool Airport is indeed enlarging the Immigration arrivals hall and it is moving to a new location to allow for more baggage belts to be installed. The work is planned to take place over the winter. UK Border Patrol Agency will also double the number of staff on duty at Liverpool.

The Security departure area is also to be expanded to allow for two more security lanes. This work will commence once WH Smith has relocated in the departure lounge.

Any chance of getting Starbucks to stay open later on a Saturday evening while you are at it?

Flights due to operate M, W, Fr and Su during the winter. Not sure why they are not showing after December. Certainly had no indication locally that the service is stopping.

No flights between Liverpool and Lisbon the winter.

bmibaby are your best option from Manchester. (Much better operator in my opinion) no running for your seats and very punctual etc.

Liverpool to Lisbon is not bookable after 14th November. Surprising considering the good laods they have been getting and there do not appear to have been many cheap seats.

Manchester, however, is not an alternative as BMI Baby are pulling the Manchester to Lisbon route from 25th October

I take it you mean the optional fast track charge? As for how low can they stoop, not as far as Leeds Bradford and Bristol who charge up to 5 per passenger for the same priviledge....

Bit of thinking 'out of the box' is needed here.

Don't pay it.

easyJet is to scrap its Liverpool-Basle route from November 2nd.

On the other hand, Balkan Holidays Air will operate a new summer charter flight to the Bulgarian coastal town of Bourgas. It will run from May 22nd to 2nd October, on Fridays.
