globepsan/zoom?

I see Zoom are advertising flights to New York in December
( todays Daily Post)

"FLYING DIRECT FROM LIVERPOOL WITH ZOOM"

I have not seen any announcements or "chat" relating to this.

Assume this is something to do with Globespan stopping
Are Zoom replacing them?

Anybody anymore info on this service/schedule etc?

Question FlyBe--LPL-SOU

I see this route stops early in September. Pity. I was trying to book a couple of flights. Has the route closed down permanently?

Unfortunately, yes. Flybe want to concentrate everything on MAN, not what they said when starting LPL flights. (Think it was a ploy to get better conditions at MAN)!!

Listen up please.

The tread slipped off the bottom because some posts were deleted. Some of them were absolute rubbish and others were stupid. So this is why threads disappear.

Keep to the topic. Think before you post and don't treat the forum or it's threads as a chat line.

Liverpool voted "UK Airport of the year".

I have in the past three years flown several times from LPL. And it was always a pleasant, easy, and quick experience. I liked the downstairs landside area after its renovation: it was light, spacious, and appealing. But since then traffic has increased quite considerably. How is it now coping?

Pretty horrible place really. Seems unable to cope with more than one arrival at a time. Very much a 'bucket and spade' airport in truth.

Immigration is horrible. I recently queued for over 40 minutes to get through passport control on a flight from SXF - and as a result missed my connection to IOM.

It sounds like MAN is at times then. Arrived from FCO last night and the queue for immigration was back out of the holding area and down the corridor. Thank heavens for IRIS...

All airports suffer from queues at immigration and it is the airport which always gets the blame. Immigration is operated by HM Customs & Excise who are a law on to themselves. The airports have no control over the operation at all.

Having said, that I went through immigration at Liverpool within 5 minutes the other night. I totally disagree with Spandau's comments. I travel through Liverpool three or four time a month and I have always found it to be a pleasant airport to fly through. Liverpool is no more "bucket and spade" than Manchester for instance.

At particular times of the day, particularly 2230-0000, immigration at STN can be long and annoying, whereas at other times it can be very quick. Indeed, I last time I arrived into STN it was about 2030 (I flew from DUS with AB). There was one person in front of me for immigration. I was through in under 1 minute. So, it simply depends.

Travelled through LPL on 3 round trips in the past 6 weeks. Find the place pretty awful and slower (yes, believe it or not) than MAN.

Took 45 mins, 30 mins and 40 mins to get through security coming through. They also have the cheek to charge passengers for the clear plastic bags that are required by law to carry liquids through. Can't beat a bit of profiteering.

The only positive was baggage was pretty quick on each return to LPL, although the queues were bad 2 times out of 3 through immigration. The fact that the airport won airport of the year tells you just how poor the majority of UK airports are now. They are places to be tolerated rather than being a nice start to the journey.

along with most things these days the fun has been stripped out of travelling, used to enjoy the airport visit when traveling through, on hols seen it as the start of yer hols, now its just one more long line of hassle, beggars belief to me at times why people go away, so much stress, main reason why i like blackpool airport, sip0le friendly and easy, how it should be , of course blk doesnt have the amount of flights lpl or man does but even so a newish airport terminal like lpl should be such a dive....it truly is a dirty place ...

I really cannot understand how it takes 40 minutes to get through security at Liverpool Airport. I travel 4 or 6 times a month through Liverpool and even in the longest queue I have been in (which went past Burger King) it took 18 minutes to get through security, and I don't find Liverpool Airport to be particularly dirty either!

Very easy to understand how it can take a while at Liverpool airport. Most times I have been held up there, they are staffing one x-ray machine and queue, whilst keeping the 2nd open for priority passengers who pay 3 or whatever it is to fast-track.

Nothing more than a case of under-staffing (either intentional or illness, holidays etc) really. Some cynical types would say that they are intentionally doing it to make the paid for option more attractive...

With easyJet and Ryanair monitoring the queues I do not think that there is a problem in the time taken because both companys are not slow in coming forward to complain.

My advice though is NOT to pay the fee.

Can't agree more with DWLPL, the queues seem longer but that is because of a smaller general queueing area with the installation of the fast track facility.

LPL - dirty & grubby? Yes but with a good reason or so someone thinks. 2008 City of Culture but they did not get the right definition of 'culture!
