Maybe they spent their cleaning budget installing (and removing) turnstiles?

Turnstiles are being removed at this moment. On another front the runway resufacing has been completed but the Airport have requested that the asphalt production plant, which was due to tranfer to Dubai, remain in place for the next three months to resurface the whole of the parallel taxiway which is in a poor state.

Liverpools first logo jet?

I see that Globespan are putting the finishing touches to their B757 by adding a caricature of John Lennon and the name of the airport on its tail

Correction to my previous post, the turnstiles are being removed, but replaced with another type. It seems that they want to bring the security fee in as a discretionary "fast track" charge on 1st May, however there is still opposition from the airlines I believe.
On the improvements front, work is to start on a multi-storey car park with 5 star hotel on the top soon. Planning permission has been obtained and it will be sited on the existing short stay car park. A covered walkway will be installed from the car park/hotel over the access roads and enter the terminal on the statue level. Also covered walkways are being installed airside for passengers up to stand 7, which will stop a lot of passengers getting soggy!!

aeulad - It's quite possible, as TOM are currently making quite a big deal about MAN.

Aeulad.
Thomson are pulling the based aircraft for S08 and are doing only 4 destinations (with W rotations) as against 11 this year. All flights being concentrated on MAN.
TCA have pulled both S07 and S08 programmes.

Wizz Air have stated today that they will start a 3x weekly Liverpool - Bucharest service, to begin in October.

What a great development...Wizzair seem to have firmly established themselves at LPL, even with FR and EZ for competition- this winter season they will fly 19 flights per week from the city.

Surely, looking at the route structures of W6 and FR, there must be some possibility of future cooperation, say a buyout of W6 by FR?

I was told that the reason is that Liverpool only hold enough fuel for there scheduled servicies.

Unlike MAN which has a direct pipleine, it has to be trucked in so there is none to spare for charters, and they cannot afford to buy so late in the day !
They will only accept aircraft with fuel onboard for a flight to Athens.
Latest info for Athens that includes:

Omni Air Intl B757
Neos 737-800
Travel Service 737-800
Euro Air MD83
TUI Corsair B744 X 4

No.

Rumour has it it will be, for those willing to pay the 2, a fast track channel through security at some point in the future.

So does that mean that security employees in the "normal" security lane will be on a go slow?

Surely both lanes will be subjected to the same thorough checks, searches etc so why the difference?

Fly Pink
It is reported that a new airline will come into being later this year to cater only for female PAX. It will provide free manicures and pink champagne with gormet meals served in flight. A 737-300 will be chartered and have a pink colour scheme serving Paris and other destinations such as Milan and New York (in a 737?) from LPL.
Another air-brained scheme or could it work?
Will also cater for the Gay community

Pink planes

Why is it people think that, cause they've painted a plane pink, it will appeal to the gay community? Its the last thing id want to get on, Unlless its gonna look like a flying male organ , Just annoys me, 'oh ,lets paint it pink,the women and gays will love it!!!'

Sorry bitch over!!!

Speaking as a gay man, I think a pink plane marketed in the right way will appeal to the gay community, which is no bad idea, as gays have a higher average disposable income than straight people.

The gay community are very responsive to self-styled identity semiotics, which is essentially what a pink plane is catering to. This is hardly homophobic sterotype setting, but rather the result of a minority group's indentity formation. So chill out mate, a pink plane would be a big turn off for me, but many gays would simply love the idea.

As far as the gay issue goes I dont think the colour would appeal any more to gay people just because it's pink. For me, it's like saying gay people would rather fly on Wizz to Katowice than easyJet or Ryanair to Krakow just because it's pink. Most people aren't really that bothered about the colour as long as they have a seat.
