Do BA passengers still get free airport parking, or has that promotion ended? A year, or so ago, I used it and it represented a great saving. Can't find any details on-line anywhere, I assume it has ended?

Eastern Airways are adding a 4th daily Leeds/Bradford - Southampton service from September 14th 2015.

Wonder if this is a response to flybe's service not been on sale for the Winter season?

Thumbs up Aurigny to LBA

Announced in Guernsey daily paper today that application to fly 3 to 5 times a week from GCI and return with ATR 42/72 to LBA has been approved. Service to start next spring. Flight timing in the middle of the day probably to utilise ac providing GCI - LCY early morning and evening rotations. Following in the footsteps of BKS and Northeast ?

RYR/ZB

Seemed to be a bit of a near thing today at 14.13/14 z. RYR missed approach followed by sharp right turn-possibly evasive action. Was the ZB late departing after take off clearance? Just interested in the details if anyone knows more.

Why, are you wondering if this will strengthen your personal case for a new airport at Church Fenton? For what it's worth I saw a missed approach due to 'evasive action' not so long ago at a much bigger airport..

Missed approaches happen all the time, no big deal and not unique to LBA!

Being based at LBA I am well aware of missed approaches Jamie and I also understand they happen at other airports from time to time. Sometimes they are a 'big deal' - that is why we have the airprox reporting system. From what I was told, although I was away from the field at the time, the RYR did not carry out a standard missed approach with noise abatement procedure and hence that is why I was asking if anyone could put some meat on the bones of the incident. Obviously this is not the place to ask (if there is a place). Thanks for your input.

Standard missed approach

Thought it worth clarifying, the standard missed approach doesn't incorporate the noise abatement procedure. The standard missed approach off both ends is straight ahead to 2000ft followed by a climbing turn back to the LBA to hold at 3000ft.

Thanks lamix that is understood. Of course the norm though is straight ahead to 4000ft to keep the passengers and the locals happy if previously requested. The RYR did appear to be below 2000ft when making a very hard right turn. My colleague tells me that the ZB was even possibly rolling underneath at the time of missed approach and took off almost immediately at about 14.13z? It does not appear as though this was a standard arrival and departure procedure of two aircraft. Would you happen to know if an airprox was filed? I ask purely as someone who is interested in the fine details of what actually happened and how serious (if serious at all) the incident was. Was the missed approach instigated by the pilot or the controller and at what point? If late, why so late and why so low? Why was the RYR not broken off from the approach earlier? Did the ZB take too much time on the departure? Not a witch hunt in the slightest I'm just very interested in what happened.

Can you confirm date and time - can't see anything on 23/7 at 14.13z on FR24?

Looking at FR24, the RYR 38XU was on approach to 32 and then turned right towards Bramhope. EXS223 LBA-TFS was taxying but didn't appear to be on the runway. The ZB followed the RYR in after its missed approach, not before

The ZB was a departing aircraft and cannot be seen on the ground. It can be seen (pops up) as it gets to Ilkley moor area on departure. It is not the arriving ZB. I have it only on passed on information that the 2 aircraft were much closer than would be normally expected during the 'go around' and that the hard right turn by the RYR could have possibly been for evasive reasons but it obviously will not be publicised unless either any of the pilots involved or the ATC have filed an airprox. Just would have liked to have seen the event and wondered if anyone actually had. History now.

This must have something to do with Church Fenton, surely..?

Was the runway extension built when you thought JAT flew 707s. Yugoslavia holidays seem such a long time ago before the war.
Yes they did operate 707s from LBA and yes it was after the runway extension. Don't remember any Tu134s on the route though we did see an Interflug example.

BA struggling..?

Up until November 1st, British Airways is running what seems to be a crazy offer on just the LBA and NEW domestics to LHR. Make one adult reservation, point-to-point, and up to three children, up to the age of 11, can fly with you absolutely free.

Can't ever remember an offer from BA so generous or desperate to fill the aircraft, depending upon how you regard the offer.

i think posting the link would breach site rules, but googling British Airways Kids Fly For Free should take you there.

I'm sure all the suited-and-booted premium business travellers will just love their journey aboard the flying creche!

Or, if we're being less cynical, a clever ploy by BA to try and attract families away from the trains. Improved trains on the West Coast have already destroyed MAN-London flights, and they may now be trying to protect their market share on the East Coast before that disappears as well.

I think you will find that most people would be connecting on those services, (it was what they were set up for, and is used as the reason a certain extra bit of runway is needed in the south).Travelling to central London from NW or NE is generally quicker by train.


Cheers

Sorry to hijack the thread, but is anybody in the know if the Britannia Airport Hotel offers a shuttle service? There is conflicting information on various booking sites (some say nothing at all, others mention a taxi, other a shuttle for 6 GBP). The hotel website itself is useless and their contact form does not work...
