Emirates

I see the last 21 flights including today, NCL-DXB have been on 2 class a/c. Only 3 of the last 31 flights have been on 3 class aircraft. Is that good?
Certainly more seats available. Perhaps its because of Easter?

We all said that about GLA. You live and learn, but NCL is sold as a 2 class, the odd aircraft substitution means 3 class B777s occasionally appear.

Danish Air Transport DX6123 is showing as a planned Arrival for Tomorrow Sunday 10th April - Arriving from Madrid Barajas at 11.25 am - Airbus A320

Is this a "one-off" charter?

Just flew NCL-AGP-NCL with Ryanair, out Thursday, came back today, both flights packed, probably 95%+ LF

Fares were very reasonable and most passengers had just gone Thursday-Sunday like us, including a stag do and hen do of about 20 each who were on both our flights... The stag didn't seem mind the early start and were just as jolly, I think the hen do (much like myself) underestimated the effects of drinking until the early hours and spent most of the flight back concentrating on trying not to die

Quite impressed with Ryanair really, very friendly and quite comfortable, hope to use them again at some point from NCL, maybe somewhere more exotic that we can't get to yet. For anyone who hasn't been to Malaga though, beautiful city and I would highly recommend it, very pleasant 18-24 degrees as well

NCL is scheduled as 2-class. The odd 3-class will probably be due to lack of available 2-class aircraft, or even, in some cases, days where the flight is quieter and less seats are required.

Haha! Nice one, I didn't think he'd go so early, quite sad really, he'll be missed and I hope they find a suitable successor! It appears that he'll still have a role at the airport though so hopefully not too much change at once. I'd love to meet the bloke but never been lucky enough to bump into him around NCL

I'm going to be the new CEO. And I'm going to tell EasyJet that unless they get 11 abreast A380 High Density models and run at least four daily returns every single day to Bristol then I'm not going to let them fly here no more. Period.

Ha ha I love all this lets see how many pages of crap we can post ha ha.

But truthfully I'm surprised at the timing.
He was just saying he would love to see Las vagas charter flights and the United going year round and double daily Emirates along with a few more...

So what's changed??
Has NCL not growing quickly enough and he been pushed a little?
Not happy that Ryanair are the key for growth??

Good luck to him and his new role within the group he will be missed just let's hope that the new person isn't all Ryanair and low cost only as that could cause problems in the years ahead !!!!

Hmmmm, a lot of investment in infrastructure of late, with inside of departure lounge making up a significant contribution.
Unsure if this this will produce forecast revenues to cover this additional investment. Some bespoke cafe's etc should imho do very well, however walk through duty free may struggle.......................
I wonder what pax levels were forecast, always thought that sub 5M was seen as a problem & that was prior to all new investment.
Got to say that as it currently stands it certainly adds to the pax experience, & in design goes a lot further in directing pax into revenue producing area's which are now always in your face.

I have always understood that 5m pax per annum is the figure where airlines start to take notice of your airport.

Sorry to see Dave go, he has done a good job. It will be interesting to see who will apply to take over. I hope they take care when drawing up the new contract (remembering a previous very expensive incident). I hope the mix is maintained although a bit more Ryanair would probably take the airport past 5M.

What is the airport's terminal capacity by the way? How many passengers could we handle? I'd have thought maybe around the 7 million mark would start to become too much

I hope the new person in charge is cautious with Ryanair and keeping the balance of thirds that the airport kind of prides itself on, high density routes that could do with a bit of reasonably priced competition, along with new markets where they can have the monopoly and create demand for themselves are fine. So we're talking ALC, TFS and to an extent AGP and ACE. PMI would be fine, as would FAO probably and maybe IBZ. On the cities front Riga, Budapest, Warsaw, Hamburg might do nicely, I'd like to see Valencia personally and leisure maybe Chania? Wildcard Athens... To be honest there are other airlines I'd rather see on Venice, Milan, Madrid, Lisbon and Berlin but if we got desperate I suppose Ryanair wouldn't really struggle to do it. But it starts getting dicey if they went for places like Rome, Malta, Krakow, Prague, Pisa and Belfast (As rumoured) because that's when they start to piss off Jet2 and Easyjet big time, they fall out with the airport, the airport "falls in" with Ryanair and we might end up with 5, 6, 7 mppa but then we end up in a similar position to airports like Liverpoop... And I for one don't want to be there. Again, all we can do is see really... I do agree it would be interesting to see why he's left now though

Those A380's would look lovely in easyjet's livery though... But I doubt bristol could handle them

Airport can handle 10m per year
Just need airlines to do what Ryanair are doing and come in at off peak times

Still no news on easyjet winter 2016/7

Winter timetable now on airport website
