LEEDS APPROACH

'You are all loyal spotters and I appreciate that'

I have not been a spotter for over 30 years and back then facts didn't get in the way but as you get older and wiser you realise that facts mean a lot so I suggest you start to appreciate them rather than going round and round in circles regarding Church Fenton as its your pipe dream after all but you CONTINOUSLY try and push your personal agenda which to be honest has become VERY boring so could you please stop it or write to your local MP instead of posting utter dribble on here, as I said before you come across as VERY immature.

This puts it all into perspective really.

It's nothing to do with lack of airports. It has everything to do with a feeling of entitlement. A sense of injustice that Manchester (and the North West) has something that Leeds (and the North East) doesn't.

No I haven't mentioned any facts but I can assure that everyone else has but yet again you CONTINOUSLY push for Church Fenton and ANDY S sums it up quite perfectly 'it has everything to do with entitement a sense of injustice that Manchester (and the North West) has something that Leeds (and the North East) doesn't' which in my view is an immature train of thought so enjoy your 'fish and chips' whilst I settle down to a nice Roast!

Same old agenda, same old story... How many times Leeds Approach must you do this??

The Stobart Air Leeds - Cork route didn't work this summer as the flights operated on the wrong days TUE, THU, SAT with bad timings its that simple. They needed a MON, FRI & SUN schedule. I've been in contact with Aer Lingus recently and they haven't confirmed if the route has been axed altogether or just for the winter season with a return next summer..

Seen as its nice and clear up at LBA at the moment, I would advise you to go back to your spotting spot, listen to you airband radio and keep watching the Flightradar24 app whilst eating them nice fish and chips from down road at Murgatroyds.

Thank you!

LBIA

Nicely put but I bet he will still be eating his Fish and Chips with his mouth full and still wanting to continue with his dire dribble on here, I will say it again he is a VERY immature individual who just won't give up and is probably a bit of a loner who's only way of communicating with others is on here!

As another poster on this site would say - play the ball, and not the man.

The location of the airport is critical! The airport cannot be stuck miles from motorway and main rail on top of a 700ft hill top! Cork/Copenhagen is the empiric proof that population is not being used and is being divided up (despite linking up with football teams and having giant posters!)
Unbelievable. So you actually in your rather unusual mind believe that 7.7 million a year in Yorkshire want to go to America..................

MAN's USA figures are not spectacular at times, and that's fed by various regions. NCL could not hold down a service, neither would LBA, or an alternative in similar area.

Just like MAN cant fill services only LHR can, sometimes you have to accept what you are.

The north can only sustain limited long haul, and that's catered for by MAN no matter how frustrating that maybe for Yorkshire, or Merseyside etc. That will never change now, that boat sailed long ago.

Do not fib to yourself - millions of Yorkshire and North East passengers are jumping straight on a train to get to MAN which is directly leading to many many marginal routes not being viable

That those routes may not be viable from MAN without encompassing great swathes of the country seems to have escaped your solitary brain cell. You would rather have an airline have 2 unprofitable routes run from the north which would result in those routes ceasing to exist in 6 to 12 months rather than have 1 profitable route from a central locaton.

Also for many in Yorkshire it is just as easy to get to Manchester as it is to Leeds/Bradford or Leeds East, he does not speak for everyone who lives in Yorkshire.

LPL etc every year because of the relative ease of getting to those airports that are not built on hill tops in housing estates
LPL isn't built in a housing estate? ... Just how well do you know Speke?

LEEDS APPROACH
Moving an airport just a short distance can more than triple the passenger throughput.
Since you have made such an extraordinary claim, perhaps you could back it up with some empirical evidence?

As it stands, that must rank as one of the most ludicrous things I have ever read. Try turning up with that one at an Investment Board or a bank's credit committee.

Also, what’s this talk of “moving” the airport? What does that mean exactly? Because I don’t think LBIA is exactly portable. Unless, of course, the plan is to shut LBIA down in favour of development at Church Fenton. But does anyone really think Bridgepoint are going to agree to that?

No, but there might be the odd one that thinks they will
