Hence you're not the market they are looking to capitalize on.

Leave them to it and good luck to them If it works, it works and creates jobs its not like it will impact on LBA or DSA in the medium term.

The "think i will stick with jet2 lol" jibe was negative enough.

I propose that this thread be now labelled the 'Bradford' thread to distinguish between the two Leeds city region International airports and to avoid confusion?

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

Brilliant news that Bridgepoint plan to do a little bit more tinkering within the terminal this Winter by filling in the gaps in the floors. It gets the most out of what we have with the terminal as we shoe horn up to 5 / 5.5 million pax. It is the perfect short term fix for what is required on the current less than ideal site and is exactly what is needed. I totally support Bridgepoint and their plans for the region.

I love it how the weather at LBA on the arrivals page of their website shows rain when it is 200M in FOG (low cloud)!

I have never seen the fog symbol used when it's foggy at LBA - always the rain symbol. Funny that.

LVPs again today at 700ft amsl but not at 30ft. Extended routing, delay, extra fuel burn, restriction of movement on the airfield.

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

Not mega problems no. Just inefficiencies. Of course it helps if you are at the airport (which I am) rather than in Stockport relying on FR24.

The LVPs are now cancelled and we indeed do now have heavy rain. Earlier the BA could have landed at 08.40 but due to visibility issues was vectored until it could make the approach while at the same time a MON 320 was held [rather than taxying] due to the LVPs. Not massive issues no but inefficiencies. 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.

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!

Not sure this adds anything harry. An airport with increased efficiency is what we all want.
