Comment in the local paper that the Isle of Man route will be operated again, though only for the TT weeks.

MKY661 are you sure the base opens on Saturday?

The reason the plane was positioned in yesterday was because the base actually opens today with G-ZBAA due to operate to Munich this morning and then Tenerife this afternoon.

Got a funny feeling it may end up diverting to Manchester if the weather forecast is to believed. Expecting up to 20cm of Snow around LBA within the next 24 hours....

LBIA re PIA 777s.

Looks like the 777 is cancelled for the summer according to other sites, and the PIA timetable showing up as far as Oct as A310.

LHR-LBA diverts and cancellations

I would have been on BA1346, returning to LHR right now, had my outbound BA1341 not been cancelled yesterday - one of 2 LHR LBA rotations cancelled due snow at LEEDS. BA1346 has just flown the northbound leg slowly to allow for snow clearance at LBA, and held at POL for about 40 mins, only to discover that the estimate for re-opening was to be an hour longer than that originally given to them.
Two other similar holding aircraft diverted to MAN. The shuttle was holding within 15 miles or so of MAN. Why take all the pax back to LHR? Not the first time it has happened. Had I been returning home on it, I would have found it rather inconvenient to say the least.

I see Jet2 have a Jetairfly 737 operating the 231/232 BCN today,
is this covering short term or are we due to see more ad-hoc aircraft this summer operating for them?

Seems like Monarch (ZB) have cancelled another LBA programme - to MUC in the summer (although the website timetable has not been updated) - not doing a lot to generate confidence for future bookings.....

Well they had been rumours recently saying that Jet2 was looking at moving its Head Office away from its current Leeds/Bradford Airport site. Well it was confirmed today that Dart Group PLC have done a deal to acquire several floors of office space in Leeds City Centre at The Mint block.

Up to 200 new jobs will be created in expanding the airline and holidays business. The group will be moving its customer contact centre, finance, IT and human resource operations to the new office, and will be home up to 700 staff when fully operational later this year. In doing so, it will allow the group to devote more space to the operational side of its Airline at its Low Fare Finder House at Leeds Bradford Airport.

200 jobs in pipeline as Jet2 moves to new office - Business News - Yorkshire Post

PIA are using a B777 on todays PIA775/776 ISB-LBA service due to A310 shortages. The bad news is that it will be diverting to MAN. Even though the airports managerment were quoted last month, "LBA was ready to accept and handle the aircraft".

PIA have no intention of putting a 772 on LBA/ISB despite all their bluster about quieter aircraft being used. This is just to keep Leeds council happy when the A310s go tech and depart late. Putting the PK775/6 into MAN yesterday proves this. They will pull out when the finally retire the A310 and hope the Bradford Pakistani community will be happy to traipse across the M62 for the flights.
