Is this really a direct flight?
Sadly not, I've followed the link in the facebook post and did a dummy booking. All the flights are via Duesseldorf or Munich.

It's a bit sill of the airport to post it like they have, very misleading.
They could choose any city on the planet if you need transfers and multiple flights.

CAA stats out - drop about 4%. Big drop on LHR (25% - over 11,000) and also the TCX affect.

DXB small decrease, AMS steady, 16% up on CDG.

Take it the BA Must be due to strike action and cancellations?

Today's Air France mid morning flights to NCL AF1058 and return to CDG AF1059 are showing on FR24 as being operated by Air Austral with flight nos. UU8058 / UU8059. Same is showing for next week Tuesday 26th Nov,
Today's flights did not operate and are not showing on Newcastle Airport's Arr./Departure screens.
Any explanations as to why they are showing on FR24? (operated by Air Austral E190 - which are not part of Air Austral's fleet)
I seem to remember AF had planned to reduce schedules temporarily by cancelling this mid morning flight

Seems to be just the Tuesday flights - Not bookable via Air France booking site next week (26th) either, although back on sale for Tuesday 3rd December.

Looks like someone has removed the AF1058/9 from the schedules, but hasn't removed the Air Austral codeshare flight number. Still, would be nice to see an Air Austral at Woolsington!

With TUI quickly scheduling and announcing load of extra departures from NCL next summer to cover the loss of TCX flights, there still seems to be no sign of any extra flights from JET2. Are there still more flights to be timetabled?

Very interesting to see the September pax figure for ABZ showing at 3,730 up 168% on the Sept 18 figure. Comparing it with the Aug 19 figure of 1.419 it shows what a big untapped market there is for this route. It looks like they were correct to take the plunge. Brussels seems to be climbing back, cutting back the loss of pax to minus 22% at 1,952 and Stavanger up 36% at 1,169.

Congratulations to the sales development team at NCL for the increasing flow of new routes arriving this winter and next summer.

We found the same thing during Loganair's brief competing on the Aberdeen route down the road. They not only found a market of their own, they boosted Eastern's too.

Yes good increase im guessing the price has helped also.
I wonder which other route Loganair could have a go at they could have the right size aircraft for some european routes

If they don't make money they seem to quickly pull loss making routes. Will be interesting to see what happens on the Newquay route.....Bergen I'm sure will work as would Oslo, if it happens.

Rumour has it that Newquay is selling very well. No surprise as Bristol does c.17k pax per month with not a great schedule. Likewise, Exeter with a schedule that mirrors Bristol does okay. Newquay is another 100 miles away, so it should do well.
