J.N.P

The 757 bus operates from Otley via LBA to Leeds Bus Station and then operates back via the train station. It effectively does a loop in Leeds City centre. You will need to add 5 minutes onto the arrival time shown for the bus station.

Hope you enjoy Leeds and wherever you are going. Your flight will almost certainly be on D-CSAL.

JulietNovemberPapa,
You flight arrives at 1725 right, so give 20 minutes for everything (disembark, passport control, hold luggage if you have).

That means you wont exit until around 1745, and if you have a chance you will be able to catch the 1749. This gets you there for 1838 which is plenty of time to wonder around the train station for your 1910 rail journey (wherever that maybe).

If you miss the 1749 journey, donít panic. There is another at 1818 which will get you into the BUS STATION at1856. Now probably there will change over of Drivers (night driver getting on). Then departs from 1900 and is given 6 minutes to get around to the rail station which I wouldnít think it would take that long. This then gives you 4 minutes to get to your train etc.

If push comes to shove and you donít want to take the 1818 journey then the best idea for you is to use the B&W taxis which will get you to the entrance of the station in about 20 minute, something our Buses cant do.

Bmi Lhr

Just had the latest Star Alliance timetable thing through and LHR seems to back to the A319 through the week, but they do seem to have been re-timed, with the first departure at 0810 for a 0925 arrival at Heathrow. Saturday is Embraers on both rotations and Sunday is three Buses and a jungle jet.

Hi

Looks like Flybe are the latest airline in talks with the airport management with regards of setting up a new base at the airport.

This mornings Yorkshire Post had the following artical. It gose on to mention that the airline could add up to 16 New routes from LBA over the next 3 years with routes to Stuttgart, Hanover and Brussels, and increased capacity on existing routes to Belfast City and Southampton.

Flybe's pledge to airport

AIRLINE Flybe has revealed plans to significantly bolster its presence at Leeds Bradford Airport.

The regional airline, which yesterday reported record full-year profits up £20m to £35.4m, is the second airline to announce large expansion plans at Leeds Bradford.

Irish budget carrier Ryanair last month said it hopes to expand to up to 20 routes from the airport depending on talks with its management.

Flybe chief commercial officer Mike Rutter said it plans to expand the number of routes flown to 15 or 16 from the current four.

Within three years Flybe hopes to fly about a million passengers annually from Leeds, up significantly from last year's figure of 300,000. He said new destinations could include Stuttgart, Hanover and Brussels, with increased capacity on existing routes.

"We have had very detailed and productive discussions with Leeds airport and the new team there,"

"We are close to reaching a potential agreement. We are looking to see how trading goes this autumn and how the economic conditions pan out. We will be directed as to how the economy performs in the next few months. It won't be an if Ė it will be a when."

Mr Rutter said the decision to expand was based on the performance of routes to Southampton and Belfast from Leeds.

"Leeds is very much a bellwether," he said. "They have been exceptionally strong for us."

However, he said there are no expansion plans for Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield airport, where it flies to Belfast and Jersey.

Last month Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary revealed he was in talks with Leeds Bradford management about establishing the airport as a base for its aircraft.

But Mr Rutter insisted Ryanair's plans will have no impact. "It would not affect us at all," he said. "They are in totally different parts of the market place."

Good news if the planned expansion of Flybe and Ryanair from LBA comes to fruition.Would be nice to have some new destinations to try out from my local airport.

With the apparent demise of Futura,I believe they had flights from LBA to PMI and IBZ,anybody any idea what airline will replace these flights?.

There won't be any replacements, As the season has nearly ended anyway.

The pax will be transfered onto other flights or ex - MAN.

Jet2 flight to Zagreb

I noticed on the LBIA departures page,the above flight.

I presume it is a one-off charter of somekind.

Anybody any clue as to what this flight was for?.

Thanks.

Jet2 flights to Newark

I see the price for seat only has been reduced to £299 rtn,at least for the first flight on 6th Nov.

This is a lot more reasonable than earlier seat only prices.Do you think they have done this to fill the flights up?.

In response to the bus comment about the IOM flight, it all depends on the aircraft type. If it is a Metroliner it will go on Stand 2, as Aviance have a pushback bar for it. If it is a Let-410 then it needs to go on a remote stand (11+) as the aircraft needs to be turned on stand before coming to a stop.

As Aviance, or Servisair for that matter have a pushback bar for it.

The loads, as far as I can tell do vary, dependant on time of day etc.

BRU - Ususally 10-12 on an ERJ-135

GLA/EDI - Largest load I have seen is 20 on the outbound, although I have seen only 4 on the inbound.

LHR is difficult to judge, as it is usually an A319, on stand 7 (Airbridge) but usually around 50. When an ERJ operates the service it is usually full.

I hope this helps in some small way.

Given PIA have been operating for a while does anyone know how they are doing loads wise? Also is the A310 Cat3 capable at LBA given the time of year we are moving into. Finally have they been able to go direct on every flight so far?
I have to say I'm surprised they haven't gone up from twice weekly given Shaheen were quick to do so, or maybe they are protecting their MAN operation!

Does anybody know how many A/C BMI Regional base at LBA. I thought it would of been 3 ERJ145 and 1 ERJ135 but could be wrong. Also, is there both Cabin and Pilot base at EGNM or is it Cabin Crew.

And with the recent Down grade with the ERJ145 operating the LHR on the winter season, could this possibly mean that an extra 145 get based at LBA and LBA operate all LBA-LHR-LBA rotations?

Over run at DTM

I've just seen the photos of the A321 on Airliners of the over run at DTM this morning. Looks exactly like the A320 LTE at LBA a few years back which overran after coming in from FUE. One of the posting there says it isn't the first time that a pax plane as over ran at DTM...again just like LBA. Are these 2 airports twinned???
BTW does anyone know what German town Leeds is twinned with???
