It's a repatriation flight organised by the Albanian Government

Group reserves I am guessing include physical assets, like an airport, or is it held as cash?

Council Audit Statements are a little strange to the untrained eye. Ok the usable reserves can be called upon but once they are gone, they are gone! ie Sell your house to get cash but it can only be done once, might not be considered wise long term. The councils (along with many other councils) aim is to get additional funding from central government to tied them over without significant drawndown on reserves. Short term this could involve a reduction of services or increases in local tax, but that would not be good at the ballot boxes!

OK. Council reserves cannot be used for day to day operations except in a small shortfall in some operational costs e.g. uninsured loss of a flooded building or extra costs for CYP or ACS. It cannot be generally budgeted for except for a small amount such as a couple of million. The reserves can also be money held by the council for other parties, so while they show on balance sheets, they are not council money. Also, money borrowed to use on a project will be shown there so while it looks good it is also spoken for much as if you borrow money to pay for an extension, your bank balance goes up. A lot of rules apply to how councils can spend their money which is why they have a section 151 officer who has a legal duty to ensure that these rules are followed.

So it's not all just sat in an account waiting to be spent.

I knew it was this month but had forgotten the day. Would have thought they could have done it during the day.

June 15th EasyJet to resume a flight programme.

Can anyone confirm that EasyJet will be operating from LTN on the 15th of June?

IOM Gov said no today, unless hospital transfers or key approved workers.These are no way filling Loganairs currently running to Liverpool & Manchester from IOM and 14 day self isolation must take place in residence not currently occupied on arrival. Maybe rules may change by that date but pay your money and risk cancelled flight is more likely.

Nothing from Luton as EasyJet’s preference is and always has been Gatwick. If cutbacks are made in the future to Easyjet’s London services there is already a hint who the winner will be.

Early days, never on the cards that all bases would start at once. Some of the Gatwick routes are very thin per week. Probally do it all with just 2 planes.

Signs are that the likes of Signature are expecting a big rebound as people who can afford it, look to distance themselves from other pax!

Confirmed by a worker that Gulfsteam will retain just a man in a van at Luton when they move to Farnborough. There was a rumour that they would retain some sort of mini base at Luton.

The issue for Signature is that its passengers are governed by the same restrictions as everyone else. There was a story circulating at Signature that while the American crew of a biz jet could fly Luton to the good old USA the British owner of the jet could not.

Could have sworn that at 0300 today there was a post by LTNman foretelling of bad news concerning LLA to be revealed this morning.

Did I miss it? Was I dreaming? Do tell.
