Leeds approach must you troll every thread?

You support Leeds east airport, we get it. How about taking a tranquilliser and sitting in a dark corner for a bit?

I propose the status quo until there is anything tangible beyond the realms of utter fantasy and not before the first passengers depart on their 1,000 all luxury return fares to the Med.

Wasn't there another crackpot flights of fantasy idea from somewhere in Yorkshire only last year also?

I'm sorry, this is a bit of a jump isn't it, Selby district council haven't even received an application for planning yet 😂😂😂, let alone begun offering commercial International flights. Which is probably one of the prerequisites for an "International" airport?

Wonder if the Yorkshire public will buy into it as it`s not Yorkshire Airlines, hope they provide fish, chips and mushy peas

I'm so glad we don't have an equivalent version of LEEDS APPROACH on the Southampton forum!

Mega problems by look of it thanks to FR24 don`t wind us up Leeds Approach, biggest delay on arrivals was 4 mins and probably no weather delays for departures

Unless LBA have adopted a policy to coach punters in from an active runway the STA/ETA/ATA is the arrival time at the aircraft's designated parking stand/gate and not when it may land on a runway!

How much of that could have actually got into Church Fenton because of runway length
There are bigger delays at Manchester just because of the sheer volume of traffic and believe it or
not we get low vis and wind as well.

To your second point - But sheer volume of traffic creates lots of wealth whereas fog at 700ft creates no wealth.
In a dog eat dog civil aviation world where airlines and airports compete to the death inefficiencies are bad bad bad and cost money and that is why I highlight them.
So the inefficiencies caused by congestion should be decreasing wealth? All airport locations are compromises - get over it (unless it supports you agenda )

Leeds gets low cloud we get fog, it`s just the position of the airfield, as soon as low viz comes in a 2 runway airport loses a very large percentage of the movements, when flow control comes in places like LGW very busy single runway and LHR and MAN and to an extent BHX and LTN
can suffer.
I thought Church Fenton used to be bad for fog with being in the Vale of York

We have compromised in the North East and Yorkshire for too long and now we have the opportunity to make less of a compromise by having an airport in a better location where flights to New York will be viable (in the long term). My agenda, as you put it, is simple and has never been hidden - let's have an airport for the North East and Yorkshire in the right place so that millions of us do not have to travel to Scotland or the North West or the East Midlands to take basic flights.
You don't have to travel. Simply go to LBA. Or were you a regular user of Concorde? I think you will notice there are very few airports outside of the south east that offer long haul destinations, save a few Emirates routes. Your potential forecasts are based on the idea there is an appetite for 90% of Yorkshire jetting off to the US every year. Which they won't.

Well it can't be denied that you have an Agenda but seriously we can all dream but I'm afraid yours are met with constant negativity and for the right reasons as well.

It's nearly the end of 2016 are you going to debate this Agenda for ever and ever as it's becoming so boring as others on here will agree with.

So in your opinion CORK has gone due to airport location so why does every other route still operate, so it's not down to loads or anything like that but poor airport location!

Now I would have given you the benefit of the doubt seeing that your no more than an aviation enthusiast and a bit to much of one if you ask me but to blame the loss of CORK on airport location really sums you up and it may be the case that you need to see a doctor as soon as possible because after reading all your tedious posts on here I seriously think all is not well!

How on god's earth is any long hauler going to lift off from Church Fenton's 5,600ft; destination NYC?

The North East has several airports already, NCL, MME, HUY, DSA, LBA ... Why the need to concrete over even more of an otherwise beautiful county famous for it's Dales and National Park?

There are plenty of UK airports stuck miles from motorways and/or main rail, CWL, BRS, EXT, NQY, BOH, SEN, NWI, HUY, MME, NCL, BLK, LPL to name but some, his only valid argument is that LBA is elevated at some 700ft in full awareness that that is something that LBA cannot improve upon.

On this island where I live they are spending bucket loads of money on a sports arena that nobody wants whilst we don't even have a medical facility with an x-ray machine ... How about forgetting your rubber necking activities and campaign for better health facilities in Yorkshire ... i.e. Do something worthwhile and what the people want!
