The sixth EasyJet aircraft arrives next week. Any idea how the new routes to Isle of Man, Venice, Naples & Valencia are selling?

Tu-204 arrived about 02:30 this morning for a load of drilling tubes. Due out either late tonight or lunchtime tomorrow, can't get a definitive answer.

Anyone know if there is any rumours about easyJets winter 2018/19 schedules as there is a few gaps most days.

Looks like BFS is missing out on a new route to Toronto-Hamilton Airport with Norwegian.

To be fair, BFS wouldn't be allowed, the application was on Irish AOC for ROI flights. They would have to use the UK AOC to look for BFS and given how strict Canada are I'm not sure they would have been grated such a licence.

I returned a few days ago from Malaga on a Jet2 -300. Probably about 25 years old, looked like new inside, a credit to them that them have kept them in really good shape. Spotlessly clean as well.

I returned yesterday from Stansted on an Easyjet flight operated by Titan, a 737-400. Again in really good condition and very clean. Goes to show some airlines can have a tidy cabin if there is the will there to achieve it.

Just checked the departures board for tomorrow after lunch. For Belfast quite impressive. The VS Orlando flight departs during this period, which means for a few weeks Saturday morning before 0900 BFS will be almost at full capacity for parking stands.

That's not correct. The EU and Canada have a freedoms agreement dating back to 2009. Any Community-registered carrier can operate to any point of Canada. Since Norwegian's Irish AOC qualifies, there is no basis for Canada to object.

I have seen the virgin flight land at noon about 3 weeks ago, I donít think it will be there at 9am.

Does it not come in from Gatwick?

Think Copenhagen was talked about by easyJet a year or two ago from BFS so hopefully it will be one of the new routes. Maybe another ski route to the likes of Grenoble?
