Paying fees

Instead put the money into helping get the airport some new routes

I don't think me walking up to the easyjet desk at NCL and handing over a fistful of twenties saying "here you go pet... Put this towards those new routes to Munich and Milan I'd like to see" is going to have much effect on what actually happens...

But yeah, providing it covers each UK airport for at least one year with comparisons I'd be interested in sharing the cost.

Instead of inane drivel about passenger statistics and new routes why not get the airport authorities to make it look like a decent airport. Firstly pick off all the litter lying windswept on the airport fence up to terminal. Looks third world. Physically move the obese, poor,gross smokers from outside the terminal into smoking areas and enforce this.

Ermm... The smoking area is outside the terminal, I've never seen any massive problems with litter before at Newcastle and what do you want us to discuss? If passenger statistics is now on the banned list what's left...? Apart, of course, from your inane drivel about Newcastle being a third world airport

Well in all the fairness the airport looks pretty modern and spacious and is having further work in departure lounge done. It's a very decent airport. You only have to spend time in LTN, LCY or even BRS to realise NCL is actually quite good (never wait 30 mins at security, at the others its pretty standard).

That fence your talking about is fairly exposed to the wind and with the prevailing westerly the wind has blown all the rubbish from the car park toward it.

If the smokers are too moronic to read the signs or just plain ignorent then there's not much the airport can do. Smoking areas are clearly marked.

And if people want to discuss or pay money to view something they're interested in then that is their choice. After all people pay 50 to watch a bit of leather being kicked around a field and many hundreds of to watch it on TV throughout the year. Now that is madness.

The MODS will be watching from above

The thread needs to return to normal. We have a very interesting year ahead of us with a lot of new routes and even the long sought after New York starting in May.

I've been through the timetable and picked up:

-One of the Verona flights still meant to be operated by Livingston?
-Has Prague been upgraded from x2 weekly to x3 weekly?
-Morning rotation to Krakow hopefully be positive
-Shame there's no real frequency increase from Jet2
-AEA... Probably typo, hopefully not
-LPA dropped by TCX
-Has BCN always been x5 weekly?
-Murcia looking sad...
-Very slow re-introduction of Turkish carriers, 2 is a good start, look forward to more

Ah shame, I thought DUB would go first. I think it's seen a gradual decline for a few years now though.

I hadn't noticed that we had lost Gerona. In the past Ryanair have usually replaced one route with another, lets see what happens.

What is it with BA???

If the forecast (doesn't even have to be actual) is for wind above 5mph they cancel flights.
If the rain is forecast to be above 0.1"/hr they cancel flights.
If snow is forecast within a 1000 mile radius they cancel flights.....

Why don't they just grow some ffs?

BA

Been like that as long as I can remember. I'm pretty sure NCL went nearly three full days without LHR flight with the bad snow a few years ago whilst other domestics were running an albeit limited service.

You have to ask why they do it at Newcastle everytime and not other airports

Maybe because pax can still get to London by using the train that leaves every 30mins...

Other airports maybe don't have this kind of help for the passengers

It's obvious why. But it's not asking too much to combine a few flights and operate at least one shuttle so those of us who pay the premium to fly BA get what we have paid for. Manchester has even faster even more frequent trains yet they do not seem to suffer as much as NCL. Not seen much disruption since its conception but I would be interested to see how LBA is treated.
