'New Jet routes' will almost certainly be the return of Bodrum and Antalya. Where else could it be they've got the UK holiday market by the balls.

Bodrum has already been announced. As has SKY.

What's the random ASL charter from BOD for today? Rugby related perhaps?

Couple of people mentioning about the possibility of GIB but this could just be for the more southern bases.

BA 903 FRA to LHR is diverting into Newcastle this evening G-BNWA Boeing 767-336ER
Just Landed at NCL at 17.55

Didn't think there was such a problem at LHR, although two BA shuttles from NCL to LhR were cancelled this afternoon - Seems a bit much to divert 767 en route from Frankfurt to LHR to pick up "stranded" domestic shuttle passengers - Any other reason?

Heathrow is a nightmare apparently due to a broken de-icer i have a friend thats been sat on the LHR-KEF A320 since half 12 and it still hasnt gone. Arriving aircraft are sat on taxiways so i imagine there is shortage of spaces as a NCL-LHR shuttle turned round halfway and came back. Also been a KEF-LHR divert into NCL

Looks like a BA ATH-LHR A320 is next in the queue.

Not sure.
Would be an opportunity for NCL to show off airport and facilities to other airlines

unlikely to be many senior managers onboard on a dirty December Sunday night

We may get some American flights diverts in the morning if Heathrow still remains bad, fog is forecast down at Heathrow during the night.

It also appears that BA are dropping Newcastle down to 5 flights a day except Monday and Thursday when it's still 6 a day and Saturday which is 4 a day to fund their expansion in the short haul leisure flights. I think the current reduction in numbers is due to the addition of Club on domestics which blocks of a middle seat, but I hope that numbers don't ontinue to fall and BA cut more from NCL like they have done with BHD and LBA.

Timings aside, wouldn't it be worth for BA to cut a few of these services (say to 4pd and 2/3 on weekends) and put a larger aircraft in to compensate. They retain the volume while also freeing up LHR slots which maybe more beneficial. I think that would have been more appropriate than trimming the programme at LBA which was doing pretty well.

Movements

Is there a movements site for Newcastle equivalent to the DTV movements site? Would be quite interesting to read with all the diverts last night.
