Something has to be funny before it qualifies as a joke.

Good luck to all those involved in Skylive tomorrow, I think you'll need it looking at the weather forecast!

Air Show

Any reviews of the airshow?

Some interesting comments around no shows and poor reporting on the Gazette today.

They tried..last year and this..it's a difficult business..aviation and air shows.
Probably too much competition and other world events?

DTV seems to have a downer on aviation enterprises?

Well done though and good luck for next year!

Despite having a great deal thrown at them, the event was a second success

Quiet thread again and as I've been told before..if nothing is happening nothing will be listed?? Sad really..how about a chat guys??...

So how was the Airshow?...not much input on this forum? Lot of hard work put in by the guys on the ground??

Perhaps no news is good news given folk only bother to talk about the bad news and have a tendency to overlook anything good.

As for the air show, as Robert says it was a success but by a smaller margin...more to learn from and more complaints but luckily not enough to outweigh the compliments.

Sunderland Council are said to have pulled the funding for Sunderland Airshow next year so I would imagine that will go massively in Skylive's favour as they'll be the only game in town

Another flight from DTV and another bad experience. Flew to AMS a couple of months ago. On a very cold morning.

I do understand the need for security. No problem at all. However, I am asthmatic and very cold air can set my asthma off. First of all, I put my medications (inhalers) in one bag and other liquids in another. I was advised to do this at LHR. Got criticised for this by security. I was starting to feel ill by the time my bags were x-rayed and said to the security that I would need the inhaler, quickly. I was told very sharply to wait until they had finished. By that time I was struggling to breathe. Someone suggested that I needed a drink of water! I needed the inhaler. Quickly. By the time they had inspected it I was quite ill, coughing to the point of vomiting. After getting the inhaler it took me about 30 minutes to return to normal, far more than usual. No objection to inspecting the inhaler, but they failed completely to understand or appreciate my situation.

Hopefully the security staff despite being contracted by a third party are included in the customer service training mentioned in the terminal redevelopment press release, because I think everyone on here will agree, they would by far benefit the most!

Mercury - you have described the scum who force "security" down people's necks at DTV very well. They haven't changed their attitude for years. They are part of the reason DTV is a far round the U bend as it is. With a little extra effort they could achieve 100% security.

Airshow

Talking to a few locals..probably the worst air show ever?
I can't comment as unable to go.

The organising committee did their very best however it's a difficult world in the air show business these days??

My fear is that it reflects on DTV?? It's par for the course ,for there I heard...which is not what we want to hear?

So what now..probably a financial problem ahead..is worth another go??
The rumours are Sunderland might not be on next year as massive problems with finances...or maybe time to call it a day? Who knows..but best of luck with any decisions.
Maybe time for new ideas for progress... attract some business,fuel stops,ferry flights,a low Cost Carrier,maintenance,painting...any ideas welcome...

Highwide...see my previous post!! Happily, the locals maintain their 100% record of being wrong. The air show was a critical success, granted only just...there were more complaints and there is more to learn from, but there were still more positive comments than bad ones on various social media.

Hopefully this is what might be attracted to the new hangars once the money is released from the housing project.

Not a snowballs chance in hell, I don't even recognise it as a legitimate rumour it's so unlikely...what is a lot more likely (but not guaranteed I fear) is Eastern/Flybe operating a Paris route as shown on the dtv movements website.

Paris

Paris has a reasonable chance of working IF it has an AF codeshare. If not, and it's purely p2p, then I think it would go the same way as the short lived Brussels flight (also with Eastern).

Paris into 2E would be great for business connections (on AF) as well as city visitors.

Let's hope!

I seriously think before any sort of flights going ahead..'including more GA' DTV/peel need to sort out this farce of the ATC shut downs.. its been going on now for far too long... I was picking people up from the evening Lourdes Alba star flight Friday night, when the empty outbound flight missed its slot by minutes, so pilot/crew had to wait an hour while the ATC had their shut down.. and while on the subject of this flight, the inbound flight wasn't even on the flight arrivals board.. but they had the Monarch 737 on a training flight earlier, which did a no show...

I do think if this route does come off though, Eastern is not the answer, as we have found out on previous attempts.. but at least its a step in the rite direction... Hope i'm roved wrong??

But AF/KLM then end up competing with themselves on AMS?

Great news

Paris..wow..that's a departure (pun) from the usual letter A departures!!

Will it work..time will tell....
However with a probable once a day. Middle of day? Flight,does this really see a change of tact by PEEL? If so. As staffed up for this flight..how about reaching out to a tour operator and get a holiday type operation at the same time??
