Restrictions

Some specific Size 7 aircraft types, namely A346 and B773, cannot be accommodated under any circumstances.
Other Size 6 and size 7 aircraft (A345, B747 variants) can be accommodated by prior arrangement or in emergency situations. Such accommodation will result in temporary reduction in capacity for 3 Size 3a/3b (B738w, A321) aircraft.

Maintenance Flights

Movements of aircraft visiting for maintenance may be accepted over and above the parking limitations shown above but only if early removal into a hangar is guaranteed.

FBO handled Flights

FBO facilities have their own aprons which are self-managed and therefore outside of the above restrictions. Aircraft operators planning to operate through FBO facilities must ensure that the FBO is able to provide them with aircraft parking. Parking of FBO handled aircraft outside of FBO controlled and operated aprons will be strictly by prior arrangement only and may be refused.

Thanks for the statistics link.
Highlights a few interesting points.
1) the decline of Monarch at LTN
The stats even include Munich which has now gone for the summer.
Existing routes have not been increased as far as I am aware.
They proudly display a banner on the HQ claiming more routes with daily flights, unfortunately none are now from Luton.
Seems like a move further north to BHX is having a detrimental effect on Luton

2) Wizz have Cravlova , Arad and Sibiu on the list.
There was a rumour of Sibiu starting in July but not confirmed.
None of these destinations are bookable on the Wizz website.
Dubrovnik is also on the list after not operating last year but again not bookable at present.
Maybe Wizz have found more lucrative routes for the summer and the first three routes may appear later in the summer schedule.

All in all doesn't look like any overall increase for this summer at LTN

Walking past the apron this morning, I saw the tail of what I thought was a Cathay Pacific aircraft sitting outside H61, alongside the Sunwing aircraft. As I say, I only saw the tail of the aircraft; any idea which aircraft this was and what it was doing there?

Probably Hamburg Airlines A.320 which has been around last couple of days. Similar tail scheme to Cathay.

I'm a number cruncher

I noticed that no figure was shown for Ryanair service to Kaunas though they are taking bookings for this from Luton. In addition I noticed that this summer season has produced at least a further 270 thousand extra seats which is very good.

I am old-school and therefore dissaponted with Monarch who have reduced their offerings from Luton. In particular on some current services they offer 2 or 3 flights per week whilst at Gatwick they offer the same service 2 or 3 times per day! Without any prompt from me a friend stated that he was unable to fly from Luton on a service that Monarch once served. He is now going to have to fly next weekend from Gatwick!

Went through LTN last week (for lovely trip via BTS to Slovakian countryside - FR flight packed both ways). Security is still abysmally slow - even during off-peak.

From the Greenline website.

For your return journey, you will go to stop 12 and the shuttle bus will connect you again with the coach to London.

Our staff will be on site to ensure a swift and easy transfer.

Actually I did not see anyone from Greenline at the airport today directing passengers. Maybe they have been banned from the CTA? All the Greenline signage has been removed and National Express are now using the old Greenline bus stops. Four National Express employees in yellow jackets were mopping up any potential Greenline passengers although there was a queue by the coach stop in the drop off zone for the shuttle bus to the new Greenline start point.

Can't see that the Greenline service can compete that way really. If they served a different London destination (say, Liverpool Street like all the STN buses, as the Victoria route is a pain if you live in East London) would they be allowed direct access to the CTA as they wouldn;t be replicating the NatEx route?

Didn't Easyjet do some testing whilst everyone was grounded in 2010? Are they involved again?

Might be the case that Luton picks up the crumbs again.

Mmmm ... In the interests of 'harmony' I would have thought that the two sets of fans would be routed through different airports.

6,000 fans on Ryanair isn't 90,000 or whatever their combined allocations are. (From personal experiences of Wembley, both teams will get less than a third of the total capacity!)

I'd also gather there isn't the parking space available at Luton either - it is the summer season now.

Each team is getting 24,000 tickets. Those south stands look rather empty most of the time.

Very regular user of Luton airport and always preferred using the airport to Stansted.

This new National Express service seems totally over priced, one way it's 15 to Luton Airport while from the same stations Victoria and Golders Green to Stansted it ranges fom 6.50 - 8.50 (advanced tickets) one way for a journey which from Golders Green station is 10 miles longer! Surely this isn't a competitive model, also worth bearing in mind the Stansted service is more regular too.

The way it's working out it will be cheaper to travel by train on first capital connect rather than use the National Express service, Luton losing out on this.

Scandal

takingoff, I just checked the National Express website;

I can travel on May 15th from London Victoria to the following destinations and here is a breakdown:

London Gatwick DEP 07.30 duration 1 hour and 25 mins cost 6.50
London Stansted DEP 07.15 duration 1 hour 45 mins cost 6.50
London Luton DEP 07.00 duration 1 hour 20 mins cost 15.00

This has to be a scandal!

Is the current leaseholder of the airport taking the mick out of passengers using Luton?

You may as well get the train. Using an Oystercard to Mill Hill Broadway and then a single to the airport (including shuttle bus) is 14.90 off peak and two quid more in the peak. Damn sight faster too.
