Are there any LPL ATCo's on here? If so what are your feelings regarding the prospect of taking over Durham Radar from MME? In fact, what are LPL staff's opinions of Peel as a whole? They seem as though they've put effort into LPL and DSA, but aren't applying that same effort to MME?

Just to recap that today easyJet have announced a 25% increase in based aircraft, up to 10 from 8, at its 'long established Liverpool base' by 2010.

Tomorrow will see a press conference in Liverpool (and Manchester) by Ryanair to announce its 'largest ever expansion'.

I would imagine that tomorrow's announcement by FR is for two purposes.

(1) to take the limelight away from EZY
(2) to act as a threat towards LPL "if you don't lower charges EVEN more and increase services, then we'll decamp to MAN. You know they would!

I'm not expecting the best for LPL.

Sounds about right with the limelight stealing. The speculation of EZY going to MAN has been around for some time but increasing with the purchase of GB. RYR are masters of the art of overstatement so expect a couple of routes into MAN from outlying existing european bases, probably only 3 or 4 rotations but 'statistically' its greatest ever expansion from MAN
Rumour has it RYR are after a bigger prescence in LBA

If it was BLK then I would imagine a press conference would be there and not Manchester and Liverpool

I've read today that LPL says about 750,000 pax per year use them on easyJet services (or is it combined with other carriers?) from the "Manchester area". Perhaps they can co-exist at both but what intrigues me is the quickish expansion for easyJet at MAN. How long did it take them to add 3 aircraft at LPL...specifically from 2 aircraft to 5 aircraft? Must be a bit disconcerting to see a MAN base half as big as LPL in the course of 5 years (including GB Airways's time) even though they would have been at LPL for 13 years by 2010.

Ringwayman,

Currently MAN's GB base has two based aircraft which the airline, in terms of numbers, keeps initially at least.

Re 'specifically from 2 aircraft to 5 aircraft'. Based aircraft #3 at Liverpool arrived in September 1999 and #5 arrived in December 2000.

The local media are reporting this morning that the press conference in Liverpool is being hailed as "Ryanair will announce their plans for their biggest-ever route expansion through Liverpool".

Can someone in the PR or spin business explain how this is "their biggest-ever route expansion through Liverpool".

Local media inform us that Ryanair will base more aircraft at its 23 bases in 2008.

They hope to base one more at Liverpool giving a total of 8 based with Ryanair spokesman, Peter Sherrard, saying “Liverpool has always enjoyed faster growth than other European airports.”

Airport commercial director Vic Brodrick says they are looking to Ryanair to fly some routes with European based aircraft as well as more Liverpool based aircraft.

Radio Merseyside report that the airport is in discussions with a number of carriers to bring back a London service. Vick Broderick is in the interview and says they are substantial talks, the airport remain optimistic & he is quietly confident.

Ryanair's services to Teneriffe and Fuerteventura are operating at near capacity, just what does that say about the Flyglobespan operation last year which they said had to route via Stanstead to make it viable!

Question

"Ryanair's services to Teneriffe and Fuerteventura are operating at near capacity, just what does that say about the Flyglobespan operation last year which they said had to route via Stanstead to make it viable!"
If this is the case and TFS has such good load figures, then why is it not operating in Summer 2008?
