Yep thats fine for Amsterdam, but the link fares for onward Klm flights would not then be available. My 9 month basing in Bahrain in 2004-2005 using Klm via Amsterdam travelling 11 times in total produced 2 unplanned nights in Amsterdam, due the Leeds connection not being good enough and as a result missed onwards flights. We need the new E190s hopefully with Cat 3 asap on our services. Just seen one at Amsterdam tonight very smart !

Anyone heard any more about the rumoured LBA-LCY?
I am given to believe that a carrier has already reserved LCY slots for the route to commence this summer...

Do KL have any UK bases? If not, why would KL have a base at LBA?

In a word - no. That's a night stop with the crew usually in hotels. A base is a bit more than that...

It was Air Anglia when I started with them in 1975 and then Air UK later
Oooh happy happy times !!!!! So they have had a base at Leeds since the 1970s even if the name changed a tad.

Just a thought, but as WOW are now operating NQY-LCY maybe there is scope for WOW to operate LBA-LCY at some point once they have established their route? I am sure they could operate a reasonable W pattern and remain suitable for business passengers wishing to travel from the SW

I dont see how a w pattern would work. By the time the aircraft had done NQY-PLH-LCY-LBA it would be mid morning and the aircraft would only just be operating its first LBA departure. Similarly the last LCY departure would have to be early so the aircraft could return to LCY in time for the evening PLH/NQY flight

Not saying WOW would never do LBA-LCY, but it would probably need a nightstopping aircraft at either LCY or LBA

I didn't say it had to be on the same aircraft that operates the NQY-LCY. But you are probably right anyway, do any of the ac still night stop at BRS? If so do they operate first thing to LBA?

Rail alternative?

Harrogate - you said '' But then I hear National Express have already been stripped of the franchise and it looks likely that Virgin will get it. Think what you like about Virgin companies, but Virgin Trains have got to be better than the current shower of ****. I've been on Virgin Trains a few times and it's always been fine - far better than National Express.''

Is this really true? - havent seen it reported in the papers and I did a quick Google search and couldnt find anything about this!

Did LBA get 3 million pax last year?

I took my final flight to LHR yesterday, BD417 19 pax total. Very sad.
