What's going on???

They were supposed to start flying yesterday for olympic but this flight went on an ly registered aircraft. Today's flight is currently 4 hours delayed. Considering they were only supposed to start yesterday not a good sign. Anybody know what's going on??

Flight STU 3360 (MAN-RHO) with ETA 0715 showing "next information at 1315"

Flight STU 2374 (LGW-RHO) with ETA 0940 showing "delayed at 1400"

The joys of sub-chartering?

Ah now I understand why there is a massive delay on the MAN-RHO flight. I was doing boarding for the ZB698 to MAH and I kept having passengers coming up to me at Gate 211 and in a very angry tone wanting vouchers and more information on the delay....I had no idea what they were on about, Swissport don't deal with Strategic and next thing I saw was an enormous queue at the information desk with Premiere Handling agents there.

I've just looked at the MAN website and it says 'next information at 1530'. This doesn't sound good at all.

According to the airport website, STU3360 is operating from MAN to RHO , not too sure where you got the MAN-MAH information from. Anyhow, this flight hasn't departed yet...

Sorry Dysneyland I got confused with something. I was doing boarding for ZB698 MAN-MAH at the time I saw people getting vouchers for that flight so I've just said MAH instead of RHO.

STU2374

It keeps being put back if you watch the Gatwick live departures site, was delayed to 20:30, then 20:35, then 20:40, no flight boarding, last call etc...so assume nothing else is known about the delay at the moment.....Hope they have not been left in the Terminal since this morning!!

Not a bad start then, just over 12 hours delay at Manchester and maybe about the same at Gatwick. Looks like the fitting of new seats and carpets have worked a treat!!

Any clue which aircraft is expected to operate the flight tonight?

(off topic) but PS502 to Kiev is delayed due to tyre burst that happened on landing this afternoon, just in case you wonder

Strategic Airlines

Imagine the delays when the BHX "W" patterns start in June! Another potential PR disaster for the tour operators!
