Great news about Stavanger. I felt Newcastle Airport lost a bit of its unique identity when it lost its last route to Norway.
(the spotter in me wishes it was something more interesting than a BMI Embraer flying the route but still... )

I'm still holding out for SAS to capitalise on their CPH route and UA from Newcastle and start Oslo... There must be star alliance frequent fliers out there somewhere for us (although I think the lack of Frankfurt link is a huge drawback)

Do Bmir codeshare with SAS or not? Every little helps. Very happy to hear the news, it's just a shame Norway/Scandinavia isn't what it once was from our region, although I don't know what changed.

Do United not fly from Oslo? I know there was a United 757 when I was there in September 2013. Think it was going to Newark but not sure...

Yeah they do, seasonal flight to Newark if wikipedia is to be believed. I was thinking that SAS/UA/SN could build some star alliance presence at NCL, then possibly lure in LH, which should hopefully create a small cycle of growth, it would be quite limited as to which airlines could feasibly operate from NCL. I can't really see SIA, SAA or ANA rushing to operate, but I think Turkish is more a case of when not if and TAP/Swiss could consider us based on whatever the next few years holds for us in terms of sustainable growth.

In some ways I feel Swiss to ZRH has more chance than LH to FRA

Looks like Avion Express causing problems again ! 3 & 1/2 hour delay on Reus this morning looks like a replacement from MAN due in at 8:20

See return flight from Reus to NCL has diverted and Landed in Manchester at 16.10.! Wonder what reasons they give passengers - Convenient way of getting G-TCDD back to Manchester - not very convenient long miserable bus journey for passengers! after long delay in Reus to start with.

Seems sensible, why have two groups if grumpy delayed passengers when you can just have one?

No pax booked on the inbound Reus as it was the first op, so the aircraft just positioned straight back to MAN.

After hearing some excrutiating pronunciation of Eastern European destinations by gate staff at Luton Airport recently, I'm sure our colleagues at Newcastle will do much better come the start of the Ryanair flights to Poland in November. Nothing too hard about Gdansk and Warsaw, but "Wrocław" is in my view best put across as "Vratswav".

I thought it was pronounced "Vroar-Slav"! I must admit there are some confusing place names out east!

TCX Reus.

Seems odd that an inbound aircraft with no passengers is on the NCL arrivals screen. Normally an empty plane is not shown?

TCX Reus - arrivals scenes are not that reliable in these sorts of cases, they just show what they're given - which is normally the schedule for the season.

Another example is that the replacement a/c positioning from MAN was showing this morning

For future reference... this is how you'd pronounce all those Polish places you never know how to say, or spell...

Wroclaw - "Vrotswof"
Krakow - "Cracov"
Katowice - "Katoveetsa"
Szczecin - "Stetchin"
Rzeszow - "Jheshov"
Lodz - "Woodge" ... funny one I know!

The rest are pretty much as you'd think.

Anyway, back to Newcastle...

"Reliabilty" was the key word as proved yesterday!! Being delayed during the school holidays with 2 under 5's isn't my idea of fun especially after paying a fortune for the privilege! Therefore a little bit of research re airline and aircraft doesn't go a miss, but each to their own😀

Yep, Thomas Cook and the infamous 757 spring to mind.
