unbelievable...

I shook my head in disbelief at the ' games room, they do know it's an Airport not some dingy low rent motorway service area?.
As for KLM leaving I had also heard this.
IMHO when the Fokkers are gone KLM may decide not to send it's larger aircraft , unless they still have any small prop aircraft in service?.
And godforbid they go i cant see Eastern bothering anymore they'd be just as well to relocate to Carlisle if it actually opens next year.

When did you hear of KLM leaving Onyx? And by larger I assume you're referring to the EMB-170? Also, why would Eastern be better off moving to Carlisle?

Eastern to Carlisle or maybe KLM. Come on guys...Carlisle will never survive as an airport,never has,never will...

KLM to leave DTV? It's a possibility but doubtful..worryingly the figures month on month are not good...it will almost certainly need an upturn in passengers to keep KLM happy..no sign over last 6 months. KLM have a lot on their plate with Air France as a partner!!!!

Eastern..who knows,,other threads put them down as a basket case!

Finally..don't think a games room will encourage extra passengers.....oh please. Let's fly from DTV. They have a Pokemon machine...or then again....

Try new accurate road sign posts,cancel departure tax and actually have a product that works?

The games room is probably to keep the 'un-paid staff'...sorry 'friends of MME' happy between flights.......!!

EGPO - just to save us repeating ourselves, have a look at my response to you at post #1883

Perhaps the games room is part of the community facilities promised for the new housing?

Is it definitely a games room? If this has been taken from FODTVAs Facebook feed then it appears they were only speculating? Seems to be a lot of FODTVA bashing on here again, which I've never understood, if they were being treated as servants I would imagine their members would just unsubscribe en mass, you can't really hold a gun to the heads of an organisation like that, if they're investing their time and effort they must be getting something out of it? And the notion that they're unpaid staff is just ridiculous, if that was the case half the jobs currently listed on the airport website would just be given to FODTVA!!

Well here we are again, all about FoDTVA, I know fine well that a few of their members are on here and often say they aren't members, clearly shows embarrassment to the scheme. I was thinking when passing through the terminal yesterday that all these unpaid hours of work that the "friends" are doing could be better directed towards a charity, not a working business that is there to make a profit and just exploiting these deluded people.


I notice Eastern have got AIS in to use a J32 on the ABZ flights, a blast from the past there and definitely not a good swap in my opinion although it will make the load factors look more pleasing.


Anyways, I wonder who's playing butler to the airport paid staff, must be a friend permanently in the terminal now I guess, shame they don't help me off the KLM flight as I've almost forgot how to use an airport.

My point proven. I understand the group is run by amongst others a number of successful business directors and managers, perhaps that strengthens your argument rather than weakens it but at the very least it rules out deluded. If liking their Facebook page counts as membership then yeah I guess I am, but I haven't shelled out a membership fee, the airport pay me to do 40 odd hours a week, I could not justify paying money back in to do more!!

So with the J32 on Aberdeen, it goes back up to 4 daily apart from a Friday.

Also KLM are reinstating the Sunday tea time flight from the end of October, but the mid morning flight stops, so still only 2 flights on Sunday's

Mr Ryan, you don't seem to get the point do you, I assume that you must go under a fake name on here as none of the staff at the airport seem to know your name, I was asking as I feel as though it would be nice to put a face to the name, not to worry anyways, I flew out again yesterday morning on the 1530, good load as per but people still seem to be very unpleasant about the airport, one gentleman even stated that he is moving his future flight to NCL as he isn't pleased with the service.

The J32's are just filling in I believe as Eastern have a lot on their plate in future, route cutting will come next I believe or maybe W patterns so I wouldn't be surprised to see developments with the MME route... however watch this space. I'm looking forward to using the E175's once we eventually get them!

Did he say what his complaint is?

Well if stopping pax from the 1530 from stalking you at work isn't a good reason for using a fake name, I don't know what would be!

Obviously I use my real name though.

Read into this what you will, but lots of chatter around the airport suggesting tomorrow is going to be a very good day...

Looks like Loganair 3 daily to Aberdeen and 1 daily to Norwich.

Loganair striking back at the Eastern/Flybe partnership?
