Can i ask why you'd come to that conclusion? Those bases have been neglected by the big two IT operators and Jet2 have done well in making money out of them ... so what they'll do is now turn there back on those bases where they have a prominent market share. I've never heard something as funny.

They've only just this year expanded EDI after so many years, knowing STN and BHX are coming online, and your suggesting they'll shut them. HA!

I have to agree those 4 bases are likely to become huge, BHX/STN are likely to become similar to LBA/MAN in number of based units etc. I just don't understand how or why you've ever come to your conclusion of others becoming smaller or closing.

I fail to see why we are presuming growth will be based around BHX from here onward? Have I missed something about BHX suddenly becoming the centre of world aviation? I must have missed that email.

Regarding MAN in that grouping, how have the big 2 IT operators neglected there?

Thomson now runs routes like MRU/HKT and about 16 based aircraft, and Thomas Cook, well, I shouldn't need to document that again, we know what Thomas Cook have done for MAN.

If that's what neglect looks like, I would love to see what nurturing looks like!

Isnt it obvious what they are going to fly? Look at all the other bases. Spain, Canaries and Greece.

That we can work out, and will be the extent of it if it's a base in the style of Birmingham (which is probably most likely given the competitive situation).

But it's the bit we can't work out that's the most interesting; will they be tempted to try and chuck in a few Pragues or Venices? I can't wait to find out :-)

If that really is the case you really need to get a hobby. Something. Anything.

To be slightly more touchy feely jet2 will stick to whatever they know. Nothing innovative. Nothing surprising. Canaries Spain and Greece. That'll do

Don't worry - I know I'm sad :-) I'm a beancounter. We're known for it. I always just reassure myself by thinking it could be worse, I could be the sort of person that goes around being unpleasant to people I've never met on the internet. If that happened I would get out more :-)

No, because I am not going to be Stansted based.
