I believe VS is Late March to early September. I am sure someone will correct if I am not right!

You need to know the Management at the Airport

They are hilarious. Add several ,eclectic, variations of the provincial accent and multiply that in a closed room. You actually wince as they get down to business. The International bit always amuses me ; the majority of the international business, is mail. So there's a downer right away. The technology in Aldergove, if it was audited properly, would shut down the airport in a heartbeat. It's not much of a contract and will probably bite the dust leaving City to reap the benefits.

Spambhoy, you post as though you have direct experience with Aldergrove management. I have met a few of the individuals at various functions, some of them may not come across as the sharpest of characters but you can't deny that as a team, they are currently on a roll. How long it lasts may be up for debate but if its long enough to do Harbour irreparable damage then surely thats their mission accomplished.

I'm not sure how you audit technology and how this audit would lead the an airport being closed, that sounds a bit dramatic! I would suggest any technology is obsolete shortly after it is installed. As far as Harbour reaping benefits, perhaps you should drop their marketing director a quick line, think they need all the suggestions they can get at the minute!

Is Ryanair stopping London-Gatwick flights for Winter 2017/18? Appears to be off sale!

Edit: Looks like people have had their flights cancelled from November!

My flight has been cancelled. It's short notice for them to do this, not fair.

Just because it's popular doesn't mean it's making money.

Just checked, nothing bookable after October 28th and a few pics on twitter showing messages from Ryanair apologising for having to cancel already booked Belfast - Gatwick flights in November.

So, you think it's appropriate to cancel flights a few weeks in advance of the flights?

I have zero idea why you think it appropriate to ask me. Less so what difference my answer would make.

Just checked my booking for 25/11 - 01/12. Cancelled too

Just rebooked with EZY, now just as cheap as the FR flights. Happier now since I'm doing a DIY connection at LGW on to a BA flight.

Unfortunately haven't yet been able to process the refund on Ryanair's website - says flight is not cancelled or dealyed > 3 hours?

What is going on with FR?

This will have a massive impact on passenger numbers if it's dropped, 5 daily thats over 56,000 seats per month lost and not even a few extra EZY flights could cover it.

Have they passed the minimum EU requirement to use the slots on the route??
