Which has been cancelled, I suspect due to the crosswind gusting in the high thirties! Would not have done much for their fear of flying at LBA in those conditions.

Haha exactly the point I was going to make!! I saw a couple of landings there today that would have scared most people - fear or no fear.

There was indeed some pretty spectacular activity up there this afternoon. Very stiff crosswind.

We were passing as a Flybe Dash plonked onto the runway at about 4pm-ish. Of the 4 landings we saw, that was the bumpiest.

Superb skills on display all round, like.

Can you guys help.

We are due to fly out of Leeds/Bradford on 6th March with Thompsonfly to Barbados to join P&Os Oceana.

The departure time is 0950 hrs, and I have worked it out that with Barbados 4 hours behind GMT, the flight time is 11 hours! (I'm guessing it will be a 767.)

Does this sound right?

Appreciate any info.

The average flight time from the UK to Barbados is usually scheduled around 9 hours. As has already been said perhaps they have scheduled in extra time incase a diversion to refuel is needed because of the runway length at LBA ...

The last TOM flight to Barbados last Friday went via Manchester,as they ususally seem to do.But you get to come back direct though,unless of course you get diverted!

That is correct....
It seems that that the flight goes via Manchester for an hour and a half before continuing on to Bridgetown with a flight time scheduled for 9 hours (4 hours time difference).

Dose anyone know how many aircraft will be night stopping at Leeds/Bradford this coming summer 09 season?

What with the all the Jet2 aircraft needed and possibility of an extra bmi regional, Embrear will they be enough or are they going to be short of stands.

35 minutes from LBA to MAN? I could drive there in 60 minutes on a good day!! I didn't think 767s could float at 100kts?!

That is block time.

Brakes off to brakes on. (This time includes the pushback, engine start, taxi out, flight time, then any holding on way into MAN, taxi in to stand at MAN).

You are getting confused by the difference between block time and airborne time. Airline schedules are block time i.e. time from start of push back or taxy to time on chocks at destination. The ground time - that between push and take-off and landing to chocks on is known as ground time and varies, often by known ground times at the relevant airfields and time of day (rush hour or not). Hence a LBA-LHR flight has a scheduled time of ca. 1 hour, say 10 minutes ground time at LBA and 15 mins at LHR but a flight time of 35 minutes.

In the case of LBA-MAN the ground time would be in the region of 20 mins and flight time 15 mins (can you do that in your car?).

If LBA-BGI were possible the ground time would still be about 20 mins giving a flight time of 8.40.



beaten to it by 7 mins!

Hi

Just been playing around with Thomas Cook website and I have just noticed that they have added a 2nd based unit on Sundays & Mondays for the summer

They have added a new route to Monastir in Tunisia on a Sundays all summer and the dropped Reus route is back and is showing to be operated on a Monday again from August to September only

Sunday May to October
Departs Leeds/Bradford 08:35 - Arrives Monastir 12:55
Departs Monastir 13:55 - Arrives Leeds/Bradford 16:15
Monday August Only
Departs Leeds/Bradford 10:50 - Arrives Reus 14:10
Departs Reus 15:10 - Arrives Leeds/Bradford 16:30

Just to revive the Leeds section,does anyone know how the runway 'repair' works are progressing,presume the surface will be less teeth rattling as a result.I remember hearing one US bizjet pilot commenting to ATC after landing that 'that was like landing in Russia!'(I've not landed there,are their runways THAT bad?
Also who knows how PIA are doing on the passenger numbers? I hear they are to add another flight in the near future.
Does anyone have a link to the CAA passenger stats page for UK airports?

TCX Based aircraft

LBIA, The flight times for the MIR are almost the same as the AGP flight. If you look at TC webpage the AGP flights are now flying with Jet2 instead of TCX.

Cheers for clearing that one up for us SASFox.

As you mentioned the Malaga service is to be operated by the scheduled Jet2.com Sunday morning service while the based TCX, Airbus 320 goes down to Monastir instead now as you quite rightly mentioned.

The Monday Reus service only runs for about 6 weeks during the summer school holidays in August and September. By all accounts its a load share with a Glasgow based TCX, Boeing 757-200, operating GLA-LBA-REU-LBA-GLA.
