Losing an airline is bad news for any airport and definately not something to gloat over ,so as has been said on the other thread where you posted exactly the same message ,GROW UP.

Correct about the BFS to BHD and EZY/RYR debate. All it would take is a few routes to go across, passenger numbers to drop and Aer Lingus to hold expansion for a few more years and BFS may want to see RYR bring in a few routes, probably from other bases to start with ie AGP, FAO, ALC, VLC to test the waters.

A321 damaged at LGW

Heard elsewhere from a mate who works at LGW that an A321 was peeled open recently by a baggage truck, and the result is a potential airframe insurance write off. Is he wrong? Anyone have a pic of the offending prang?

Just curious, as a former wielder of airport ground equipment.....

G-TTID did indeed get a gash of approx 10ft one day before it was due to be off leased and positioned to Shannon.

and the result is a potential airframe insurance write off. Is he wrong?
Someone is getting a bit carried away. The repairs are complete and the aircraft is waiting to position to Shannon.

Anyone have a pic of the offending prang?
I've seen photos but don't happen to have any. Sorry.

According to Jethro's, it says:

G-TTID "Parked dmgd Gatwick (ground incident), now declared W/O"

So one of you has the wrong end of the stick!

Wow someone must have hit it with a fair wack to do that, if it has been declared
a write off they must of done some more damage (structural maybe) than just ripping the skin as that can be replaced

MAN-MXP has always being served by another airline. Currently Flybe, and it took over the route from BA regional. There are also charter flights on the route.

was caused by one of the electric buggies (slightly modified.. hence why it reached such a height).. as far as i can recall impact happened about 1m to the left of the hold 5 door, went right through the door itself and continued for about another 1-2ft to the right.... im guessing the no drive diamond was broke in this case .. last i heard they were going to replace a panel instead of patching up..

Edit - just looked at the pics again, damage stops at the far end of the door to hold5

It left LGW at 13:55 today for Shannon to be off leased. (as was always the plan)

I suppose there is the chance that it went unpressurised and it is a Write Off however the engineer told me it was all fixed so I assume that means Jethros is incorrect.

I believe they changed the bulk door, not sure if they patched or replaced the other panels.

With BA pulling out of Belgrade from 30th Nov. I think there is a real chance to see EZY (new flights to LJU and ZAG will be launched soon) at Belgrade next summer.
JAT (daily to LHR) and Wizz (3 weekly to LTN) are tho only ones on the London-Belgrade route.

Summer 2011

When are Easyjet likely to release their summer 2011 flights?

How are EZY progressing with improving their "on-time" performance from Gatwick? isn't the deadline for improvement 16th October?

My most recent experience was flying from Montpellier on the 11th Sept when the incoming flight was 45 minutes late and this would have been a first departure a/c from Gatwick. I do wonder what happened to the poor unfortunates who were due to fly to Luton at the same time..1000. They were on the a/c for an on-time departure but as we were making our very late taxi towards the runway the pax were sighted disembarking the aircraft and returning to the terminal looking very angry.

There seems to be very few cancellations which is a good thing. The French ATC strike didn't due them any favors.

Just looking at LGW website most flight are arriving around 20mins after they are due but a some are arriving in before time also. There is not many flights running over 60mins late. It's a huge improvement from a few weeks ago.

Can I ask a really basic question to someone such as The Flying Cokeman with "insider" knowledge of easyJet?

I can easily understand how delays build up in the schedule as the day progresses and turnaround times cannot be met, resulting in late arrivals and knock-on late departures.

However, I don't understand why first departures are often late departing? Is it because the flight and cabin crew aren't at the airport ready to go? Surely that is not the reason. So is it an ATC restriction? Or is it simply that there are still not enough full crew compliments to operate the schedule at the start of the day?

Thanks for any enlightenment!
