Those LS ones are news to me, the way I understand it its the a/c currently based (2x B757-200 + 1x B737) plus an extra 737

I.e. 2x 757, 2x 737

But once again I may be mistaken given that I tend to find out information that then changes about 3 times but I dont seem to find out about the changes

Bmi Regional are due to announce further expansions from the spring and East Midlands is thought to be included in that so they may be another one of theirs to come.

Ryanair do not have their summer 2013 schedule ready yet, only a few flights are released so it's not yet possible to tell how many they will have. They had 7 for a few years but that fell the just 6 for this summer although there were more flights operated by aircraft not based at East Midlands so the number of flights remained about the same. The winter 2012/2013 season seems to be slightly better than their winter 2011/2012 one so if a 7th aircraft were to return for summer 2013, especially with BmiBaby now gone, it wouldn't be too surprising.

Hasn't been confirmed what FR will have for next summer, I've heard Thomson will be down to all 738 as well.

Winter 2012 TOM is x2 737-800
Summer 2013 TOM confirmed as 787 operating Tuesday CUN and Wednesday SFB every week. No 767 in 2013 unless 787 tech.
X3 737-800. No 757 as these are being phased out by Thomson base by base

Jet2 will base 1 x 757, 1 x 737-800 and 2 x 737-300's as previously mentioned rather than 2 x 757's and 2 x 737-300's. This is due to several 757's leaving the fleet and and increasing additions to the 737-800 fleet.

FR to announce further expansion at EMA shortly. The bmibaby capacity void may finally be filled.

To celebrate 1m passenger growth in 2013 and the launch of its Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands 2013 summer schedules, Ryanair is launching a seat sale with 100,000 seats across its European network at prices starting from just £15.99 for travel on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thur in November and December, which are available for booking until midnight Thur (1 Nov).

Ryanair’s 9 new summer routes from Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands will be available for booking on www.ryanair.com tomorrow.

In Manchester today, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:

“Ryanair today celebrates 1m passenger growth at three North West airports, with 9 new routes, which will sustain 1,000 new jobs at Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands airports.

Our 34 Manchester routes (including 5 new to Corfu, Krakow, Lanzarote , Paphos and Trapani), 39 Liverpool routes (including 2 new to Lublin and Zadar) and 38 East Midlands routes (including 2 new to Marseille and Menorca) will deliver almost 7m passengers and sustain over 7,000 jobs at Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands airports in 2013.”

CDG

So here we are four days into the new BE/AF flights to CDG and the airport still doesn't show the AF flight codes on its arrivals/departures boards; it must be the only airport where this code share arrangement between the two airlines is in place that fails to do this!
It begs the question are those responsible not aware of the fact, or perhaps they just fail to realise that the information just might be of use to someone....?

Unfortunately instances like this just re-inforce the impression of the airport appearing not to be quite "on the ball" when it comes to communication...!

totally agree!

The AF codeshare and the easy onward connections on the global AF network must surely be a good news story for EMA and they should maximise on it.

Balair:

Whilst it's slightly daft of the airport management, most people book flights on the www and will pretty easily find the AF connections by using the likes of Opodo (other on line agencies are available!) or the AF website itself.

Ryanair

Just what EMA needs like a hole in the head - more Ryanair, which means less revenue to use to develop the airport, improve facilities etc that would benefit proper scheduled carriers such as FlyBe and their major partners. Hopefully the airport didn't go out of their way to offer incentives to get the extra Ryanair routes and aircraft to the airport - if they did, I'm afraid it will turn out to be a big mistake.

The Ryanair extra flights is better than nothing the airport having more pax will bring more revenue maybe not as much as the likes of Thomson etc but it's a start to filling the void left from bmibaby, as much as I'd prefer seeing Tom Tcx mon be expanding from the airport it still isn't bad news for the airport
