EasyJet flight makes emergency landing at Newcastle Airport due to 'fumes in the cabin' - Chronicle Live

An easyJet flight had to make an emergency landing in Newcastle after reports of fumes in the cabin.
The flight to Hamburg took off from Edinburgh Airport at 12.40pm today but had to be re-directed to Newcastle International Airport .
The plane landed safely at around 1.25pm and emergency services and fire crews were waiting on the runway.
Airlive.net tweeted: “EasyJet #U26931 to Hamburg diverted due to fumes in the cabin. Spare aircraft on its way to Newcastle.”....................

I believe the other emergency was a helicopter with engine failure.

Summer 2017 update

Some big gaps in the current Easyjet schedule for the peak months next summer (based on three based aircraft):

Monday - full aircraft spare all day (2 or 3 return trips)
Tuesday - two return trips (AM & early PM)
Wednesday - one return trip (AM only)
Thursday - no gaps
Friday - no gaps
Saturday - one return trip (late PM only)
Sunday - no gaps

The Flybe schedule is also out, with Exeter and Newquay as per this summer though Southampton increases to four daily Monday-Friday, three on a Saturday and two on Sunday respectively. Everything else sees limited changes vs. this year (Almeria is a new destination with Jet2 & Thomas Cook, additional fortnightly Orlando-Sanford with Thomson), with the exception of the previously reported increases by Ryanair.

Easyjet Summer 2017

Re the earlier post by Kev 1.

Could the spare capacity/ gaps be for new routes yet to be announced ? or are the aircraft going to be used elsewhere during the summer ? Seems really odd reducing the frequency in the peak season. Apparently it is the same situation at some other airports.

Anyone have any ideas??

It is a bit late to announce new routes.

It could be to provide a more robust flying program. Last summer had lots of challenges (some external) and creating gaps COULD be to introduce resilience and bigger firebreaks.

Never suprised at how late airlines leave to announce new routes, 1 week for one at Manchester this week and to Iraq as well

Except for maybe Customer Services, you can't really compare Iraqi Airways and easyJet.

Having been victim of one of easyJets "challenges" earlier this year, I hope this to introduce resilience and bigger firebreaks (although most of the gaps seem to be on the quiet days?). It might need a change of approach though, as they didn't use such gaps to recover the programme in my case.

There are no quiet days in the easyJet summer. It's pretty full on each day of the week with many aircraft spending just a few hours on the ground overnight.

There were no such breaks in the schedule in summer 16 season.

I think that easyJet maybe playing a safe game by waiting to see what jet2 and Ryanair are doing. I think the gaps will go nearer the time expect extra flights being added when they know what they can sell and what price.

Ryanair coming daily on the Palma will hurt easyJet.
Big question will be how easyJet react???? Add extra or keep the same amount of seats or adjust downwards and add when they need to.

So as anybody got an update on post 8412?

easyJet

BRS too has some gaps in July and August. Last month the local newspaper there published an article about easyJet and BRS in which the airline's UK commercial manager is quoted as saying that new BRS routes will be announced in the New Year.

On that basis it is reasonable to speculate that those other 'easyJet airports' that currently also have gaps, including NCL, will see them plugged in some way before the season begins.

Bfs was supposed to op from 'their end' from Sept this year I believe but not happened yet of course. Brs as we know has however, on all but the Sat am rotation in summer with most/all reverting back to ncl based a/c through winter. Would be an awful lot of time each day freed up with often 3x ncl a/c doing the bfs run per day.
