Liverpool security

Not trying to be alarmist or anything, but I flew from Liverpool to Aldergrove the other day and went through security with horror of horrors......a small bottle of lemonade still in my bag. I had bought it in the airport Boots and intended to drink it before going through departure but forgot.
Sure enough the the red 'search' light illuminated on the other side and I knew straight away that the lemonade had 'fessed up.
The fella on the monitor looked around for someone to rummage amongst my drawers. Seeing that they were all on the far side dealing with people on the adjacent machine, he got up, went straight to the side pocket of my bag and removed the bottle of lemonade. Even though I was now sans lemoade and slighly demur after the stern look of admonishment from the security chap, I felt, that even if it was (in my opinion) a ridiculous rule, at least the guys there were doing their jobs.
The rub is that when I got to my hotel the other side, I found the two hefty metal forks in the front pocket, there from a trip to the beach a fortnight ago.

Idiots !!!

yes most agree that the liquids rule is getting very tiresome but these guys and girls have a set of rules to work to and most do it well. However the term "Idiots" is a bit strong,your confession that you had travelled with no knowledge of the contents of YOUR bag suggests to me that you have your own short comings.

More importantly, was it white or brown lemonade?

Angel Easy Jet to Jersey

Is Easyjet looking at operating to Jersey.

It might work and take away the Flybe Manchester or the BMI Baby.

There is talk going on that there might be some happenings in this direction?

BE operate 14 flights a week from MAN to JER, with three flights on a Saturday. This means upto 3 DH4s will be flying between the two airports this weekend, plus the daily WW 733/5 flight.

EZY would have to offer more than a daily flight to chuck BE and WW off the route!

Ezy Jer

Sounds like a good idea - not sure what BE would think though, have a real hold on the CI routes from the Jersey European days.

Easy would be good on JER - EMA/STN/BFS/EDI/GLA/NCL/LPL

Do Flybe have a hold on Jersey

Every day from what we see and hear there are problems.

The have two aircraft based in Jersey and thet is never enough due crewing tech problems do I need to carry on yesterday the Dash8 0710 to Sou went to Sou and returned to Jersey after lunch as the aircraft was required to do a Sou Glasgow Sou before returning so are the looking after the Island or just creating a bad feeling if a certain person was still around he would be very dissapointed with what has happened.

So work that one out.

The Flybe takeover over BA connect is still creating big problems not only crew wise but aircraft as well if you look at all the carriers the are leasing in to cover it is not all to do with the late arrival of the next EMB195.

The Globespan service Ex Liverpool has just been discussed on Radio Murkeyside, bit of a shambles ongoing sporadic long delays and pax unaware of the stopover at Knock.

I think they will need a rethink if this is sustainable longterm.

I think too, ironically, that some people are put off paying so little for such a long flight with a generally unknown airline. Sadly, I think the whole thing is doomed to failure with the NYC flights in all honesty - the unreliability issues notwithstanding.

I noted too last week that it's not possible to book Liverpool - Knock on the flight, perhaps that'd be an avenue worth exploring to recoup a little of the money being lost on the route.

Liverpool closed until midnight due to security alert.

Most RYR & EZY i/b flights diverting to EMA

EZY7145 (Palma) though has seen the light and is inbound MAN as I type.

Fast track imminent

It looks like all the alterations have been completed for the introduction of "fast track security" for those who want to pay. Because of the opposition of the Airlines the previous scheme to charge all pax has been abandoned. It will be interesting to see if this will succeed.
(What happens if the majority of pax take the fast track, will the normal pax queue be quicker?)

Just don't pay the charge and go through by the normal method and then you won't be disappointed.

sad

its sad to see all the delays on the gsm flights but the aircraft is wrong you need at least a 767 on this route. it will be a sad day if gsm pull the route after vlm pulled the london link. liverpool airport needs these links to major cities in order to grow bigger gsm sort it out before its to late.

Just heard LPL is shut again due to another security alert of a "suspicious" Car.

Apparently it had tax insurance and the radio was still in it !
