Can't see the airport wanting DY for New York.

The main reason airport didn't work with Ryanair before now was it didn't want routes to secondary airports miles away from city centres
Ha, and you think NCL is in a position to turn down operators!?

Are you sure? Do we not need the QC's for the Royal Mail

I understand that Jet2 have not renewed the Royal Mail contract.

Surely those QCs must be on their way out and probably dictated any future RM commitment?

Three of them have left this Winter, not sure how many more of them will.

No Jet2 didn't even bid this year for the QC contract, they did however bid and secure the contract for the freighter only out of BFS.

There's a thread on here regarding the new Royal Mail contract which has entirely gone to west Atlantic I think off the top of my head. Jet2 and Titan didn't tender for the contract.

Newcastle is showing in the drop-down menu on the Cobalt website although no flights bookable as yet.

They must have removed NCL when they saw your post :-( it only shows STN BHX and MAN now but it might have been premature but not impossible that it could be re-instated.

Is Newcastle one of the airports that is being affected by SAS decision to cut access to third party lounges for its premium customers? As in one blog I've seen Newcastle mentioned for fast track to be suspended from February but then the next list which is for airports which are continuing access it mentions Newcastle so I'm slightly confused. I've seen its been stopped at Aberdeen so I presume they will stop access to Newcastle too.

6 flights again, looks like the NYE trips were a flop... Unless they might add them in later, I doubt it though. Glad to see the October half term ones are sticking around, makes me wonder why the Easter flights didn't work

Edit: 7 flights from LBA and 9 from MAN, both have NYE flights and MAN even have one over Christmas, 22-26/12. EMA down to 2, 3 from GLA. I don't think it's a surprise there's still no flights from EDI, I'm also not surprised to see that there will be 1 flight from BFS this year (I thought there might be more). 2 flights from BHX I also expected to see, but I am surprised that there won't be at least a couple from Stansted

Why is there no surprise that there are none from EDI? I dont think there has ever been.

Because Edinburgh is well/over served transatlantic, as is Glasgow, so it makes sense the low number of flights from Glasgow and none from Edinburgh. If people want to go to New York they'll go United, or Delta or American... Or Norwegian... Even without NAX, It's pretty much a saturated market, but why should that stop EDI throwing airlines and seats at their routes?

For Jet2 though, it strikes me that it probably wouldn't be worth it the way they operate it, with the long EWR layover etc.

Think he was using NYE to refer to New York Easter flights (as original context) reference to Christmas etc... was added later in discussion,
