Flight times for Thursday are:
BFS-VNO - 22:50-03:50
VNO-BFS - 21:00-22:15

Wednesday times:
BFS-VNO - 07:55-12:55
VNO-BFS - 06:10-07:25

Sunday times:
BFS-VNO - 21:50-02:50
VNO-BFS - 20:00-21:15

Wednesday flight may still be removed I guess hopefully not! Wonder will it be A320 or A321 operating as I see they have been using the A321 this winter.

Must be lots of snow or ice.

LGW flying in circles at the moment and indefinite delays on several flights.

From their twitter feed

MoreUpdate 18:15 Our snow teams are continuing to clear snow from the runways and aprons and we are aiming to reopen shortly. Delays and disruption to flights can be expected because of this so please check with your airline for latest flight updates.

Those canny Middle Eastern airlines. Upping sticks from the third busiest airport in these islands, thirteenth busiest in Europe, for the shed up the road which easyJet describes as “full”. Clever and cunning fellas. I bet Dublin airport’s in a real panic over it all

Like BFS, LDY isn’t in the actual city it serves. If Flybe were in Derry, then they missed the airport by seven miles. I think if you remind yourself of my incredulity at the time you will see that I agreed with you re: likeihood of BE starting at LDY. Should Emirates start up at an airport ninety miles from an airport they already serve, in a part of the world which has no coherent government, an uncertain socioeconomic and geopolitical future, from an airport that can’t support a New York route, then I will happily meet you at your beloved Aldergrove and buy you a pint (even paying the 5.50 they charge).

Now. The 1970s called. They miss you.

A380, what an ugly brut of a flying machine. Looks like something a child would make out of lego.
