not so

It's a 'hot bed' system.
A good percentage of the machines you mention will be in the air during the night.

I wonder what we will see at LBA of the new BMIr ? will the BRU route stay ?

Also, isnt it about time that an operator restarted the longstanding NQY-LBA route, ex SZ ?

Like who? Doesn't look like a FlyBE or Eastern route, so that just about leaves Loganair or Manx2. Again, looks like an unlikely fit.

mcsowden regarding next summers Thomson routes, The Thomson Holidays website shows the following message "Flying with To Be Advised" for all available routes from Leeds next summer.

It looks like it has still been undecided who will operate the new flights. I know the original plan was to part based aircraft and use a Monarch, B757-200. But now that they have announced a fully based aircraft flight program they may decide to base some of there own metal instead using a B737-800 or B757-200.

Or could it be that like Thomson's flights from Dublin & Belfast that Leeds flights could end up been operated by Canadian Airline Sunwing, using B737-800's?

Hi airnoc,

During April, May & June 2396 people flew on the NOC-LBA route.
897 flew on it in June with approx 34 pax per flight. The aircraft operating the route carries 78 pax altogether. So the load factor would be just under 50%.

It's not bad. I got those figures from the CAA & CSO websites. My calculations could be wrong. It's just a rough estimate that I got from looking at the figures on the CSO & CAA websites as mentioned above.

Hope this helps.

Leeds - Knock

I wouldn't be too hopeful as the 9 & 10 September sees major changes to the flybe schedules with a several routes ending some of which were year-round.

Ending

BHX-HAM
MAN-BRU
SOU-FRA

Starting

GLA & EDI to EMA at three daily.

This is without considering the seasonal French flights.

So that means Flybe are dropping HAM, FRA and BRU from its entire network now!

Was told yesterday that Jet2 have asked Multiflight about building a new larger maintance hangar over on the southside at LBA next to the existing double barrel hangar so to accommodate aircraft sized up to Boeing 757/767.

Anyone else heard about this or know if there is any truth to it?
