Not to sound like a broken record but looks like SX-ABQ has been moved for repairs.

For repairs, or just moved out of the way?

I've heard 2 x Avion Express A.320 and 2 x TUI 738 also, but that was before any mention of an additional 737 deal. Might be superceded, but it might also be that TUI need both the additional 737's and the third party flying.

Chartered out again, should be gone by Sunday... Fingers crossed anyway!
I'm not really sure why it's been moved to Golf, however ACG (aircraft capital group) have acquired it as well as a few other end of life A321's for the summer.

I think they will still need a fair bit of ACMI unless it ends up being much more than 9x738 (as has been suggested by one poster). Another poster has confirmed Smartlynx will be used at LGW, however these will replace the already planned Norwegian-operated flights (presumably because they will also be struggling with MAX issues). They haven’t been known to use any ACMI at NCL for as long as I can remember but who knows for this summer.

It could well be on a W pattern which Sunwing did last year.

Looks like it’s not going to climb above FL230 for the duration of its journey.

Future routes??

With passenger numbers declining once again which new routes do you think likely for ncl and when could we see these begin? We still have gaps left after the demise of tcx waiting to be filled...

The Airport's Masterplan 2035 (page 20-21 Figure 6) link below, suggests routes being looked at by the Airport for future growth:

https://www.newcastleairport.com/2035-masterplan/

Examples include:
Canada: Toronto
U.S.A: Atlanta (Major US hub for Delta Air Lines) * Map was prepared when the Airport had a direct connection to Newark NYC with United
Asia: Delhi
China: Beijing, Shanghai
Norway: Oslo
Turkey: Istanbul
Europe: Athens, Budapest, Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Zurich, Toulouse. Munich (now served)

Realistically:

United to EWR might work if Lufthansa are able to go more than daily with MUC and potentially FRA to build up a Star Alliance customer base.

Oslo probably stands a chance with Loganair but no more

Air Transat or Westjet might attempt some kind of Canadian destination at a push if the market is right.

Turkish to Istanbul, would probably work but do the airport want to risk Emirates getting peeved off, especially if the Far East market continues to feel the fall out from Coronavirus as the region makes up the majority of EKs onward connections...

Did hear on the grapevine Wizz had expressed an interest which is probably more likely than most of the above

God loves an optomist!

EK don't seem to shy away from a fight - and DXB has stood up well to ME expansion in Scotland and at MAN.
