"Record" PAX for the past 2 months, though no official figures are out.

Simply the Beast

Thank you for your stereotypical ignorant comment

For your information Liverpool is the 8th worst place in England for car theft behind (in order) Manchester, Bradford, London, Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle And Birmingham.

Completing the top ten is Cardiff and Bristol.

FlyBe Summer 2017?

Any sign of Flybe schedules for Summer 2017?
Ryanair at LBA giving notification today of increased flight regularity to the popular med destinations plus other east European destinations.
Hope Flybe can pull something out of the bag and soon. They are putting customers off with higher pricing and lower hand luggage size (than Ryanair LBA). I have today booked a one way flight tomorrow FAO-LBA at 75 (10kg 40cm (flybe 35cm)hand luggage + 15kg case) Flybe price on Thurs FAO-DSA 116 (2 cases - 40cm hand luggage too big). I'm a Yorkshireman and will dictate choice. Daily flights for regular used destinations 2017 will boost LBA preference. I know Ryanair cut a hard deal, but are exclusive agreements with Flybe and Thomson stifling potential growth at DSA?

I wonder how much capacity is sold immediately after the launch of next summer's programmes, especially when the launch is before the end of the previous summer season. I imagine it's in the main capacity sold to families looking for cheap deals, and for whom price is more important than timings, service and the like.

Personally, I'm hard pressed to forecast, with any certainty, what my circumstances will be 6 months from now, let alone more than a year. It appears to me more like a cash-flow building exercise, getting fares, or deposits in from customers as early as possible, to spend over the leaner winter period.

FLYBE TO TAKE ON DUBLIN ROUTE

I've just seen a new advertising for Flybe from Dsa in a bus shelter and it's got Dublin on the list. Anyone heard for a press release?

Flybe showing 6 weekly flights to DUB. Interestingly the flights times are DSA based but the current scheduled other two flights departing at the same time are also on sale which indicates at least a third part based aircraft....

New Dublin route is great from my point of view. And the fact the plane night stops in Dublin is likely to mean a hotel less in a typical Ireland visit. All good.

Having said that arrived back from Paris on Sunday night, to queue for 30 minutes outside to get through Passport Control.

Not impressive. Had it been raining or winter I'd have been mardy.

The aircraft doesn't night stop in Dublin. It has a 1hr 5min turnaround on a weekday which is unusually long but perhaps it has something to do with an aircraft change from another base or some kind of slot allocation...

I agree. The UK Border area of the international arrivals hall is not the best fit for purpose. Just imagine what it gets like when all the Wizzair flights come in close together in an evening...

The downstairs area for the rarely used gates 4/5/6 should have always been the entry point for the international arrivals hall. With the correct set up and queing system you would easily be able to accomodate two full A320/737 passenger loads in this area. The baggage reclaim belts are directly behind this area and already has staff restricted access. So with minimal work it could completely transform the arrival experience without the need for any extension etc.

Typical airport spin. He doesn't mention the flights that have been dropped to pave the way for Dusseldorf and Dublin.

Wizz look set to introduce a three weekly service to Kaunus next July/August to replace Vilnius whilst it undergoes a runway reconstruction.

What flights were dropped for Dusseldorf?

You can claim spin as much as you like, but over 145,000 pax in August is indeed the best month ever at DSA. 2017 will almost certainly be the airport's best year ever too. No need for spin. Though I agree, Dublin needn't have been brought up in the press release, as FlyBe is simply taking over the Stobart route.

Don't quite understand your point, Leeds Approach. The FlyBe flights from DSA aren't cheap at all when compared to Ryan Air, Jet 2 and Easyjet to the same destinations from LBA, MAN and EMA. Yet the figures don't lie. DSA and FlyBe must be doing something right to attract passengers even though cheaper options exist.

Dare I suggest that passengers in the region are finally discovering the "reality" that DSA is an easy airport to get to (at least by car) and its relatively small size makes the whole airport experience more comfortable than, say, LBA?
