I hope the impact on NCL isn't too great.
About 11k per month on SOU and 4k on EXT in December, so approx 2.5% in winter (numbers had already started to plummet in January).

I don't believe T3 have operated NCL-SOU before...

Seems a bit pointless to have two operators on the Southampton route, if anything, Eastern should've perhaps focussed reinstating services at other UK airports or reinstate the NCL-EXT route

T3 flew NCL-SOU for seven years from 2003-10, mostly as an extension of ABZ-NCL

Apologies.

I'm assuming Flybe then took over this route which prompted T3 to withdraw?

There could be room for both. I assume LM will use an ER3, and T3 a J41? Both combined still offer less seats than a Q400

[QUOTE][I'm assuming Flybe then took over this route which prompted T3 to withdraw?/QUOTE]

Actually, for much of T3's previous stint on NCL-SOU, they competed with Flybe, who began their services over the route in autumn 2004 - so the route then sustained two operators for 5+ years.

I think the market will be able to cope with both.

the problem will be Eastern prices and there reliable service compared to loganairs

I can still book Brussels. Looks to be a few changes to the schedule on several dates but appears normal after August, twice daily

Edit: Never mind, all showing as sold out.
Can't see anyone else going on to this route now then.

Great approach

Total aside - from a left hand side passengers point of view the approach to NCL from the south in clear weather is a Joy. IMO The most scenic final 10 minutes of any descent into a UK airport.
That 90 degree turn to finals around St Marys Lighthouse is magic.
I wonder how many Pilots fly that descent manually?

Hi Flying Hi, Thanks for your kind words about our neck of the woods. It is pretty scenic, and the view down the River Tyne before you get to St Mary's is pretty iconic too. Have you ever flown into Sumburgh btw? Now that's pretty spectacular. Soz for thread drift.
