Ryanair tweeted me back to say winter flights on sale 6 months in advance so unless we hear in the next couple of weeks looks like Madrid is dropped for winter

Can expect a drop in DUB pax with both FR and STK/EI cutting capacity.

Annoyingly day trips won't be possible on majority of days with both flights operating within an hour of each other int morning.

CAX will be offering an afternoon flight; again doesn't help for day returns.

Back to long days via train to EDI/MAN for my colleagues and I.

EZY's 15th anniversary press release. Pretty low key comments - no mention of future developments

I was going through the schedule before to see if I could find where they've got this capacity from but I couldn't... I'm presuming this is a capacity reshuffle as opposed to a capacity increase, but I'd happily be corrected on that.

I thought perhaps the 6am slot for BOJ could have been freed up by an ALC or PMI being operated by an aircraft based out there, but all the Wednesday flights are operated by NCL aircraft.

Nevertheless, nice to see Izmir back on the boards! Must be pushing 10 years now since it was last served, I'm sure XL did it...

Disappointing about Ryanair and Madrid, but if it wasn't working through the winter, I'd rather see the route remain on a more profitable basis, than operating at a loss year round. At the end of the day, the winter will always be a struggle!

Very positive from EZY, long may it continue

I was watching the bags being loaded onto a KLM flight on Wednesday.
There were 14 people at the bottom of the conveyor belt, 2 putting the bags on and 12 standing watching.
You've got to wonder.....

Flew through NCL yesterday to SXF. 117 pax on board so plenty of empty seats.

6.45 for a Bacon sarnie though? The beer was cheaper!

Ash - your posts often have me wondering...
You don't give much information, but your implication is that there were people just stood idly around and this is a wasteful and inefficient process - if so I'd be amazed as handlers have been cut to the bone (and if they were that overstaffed, they wouldn't be stood around outside they'd be inside drinking tea... ).

You don't just get on the apron without a v good reason, but their could be a hundred and one reasons - given the time of year, maybe newbies being inducted, or some sort of audit or inspection, something particularly "interesting" being loaded, airline visitors, etc, etc

I'd agree with the training newbies theory. Looked like there was a load of training going on around a parked up Jet2 737 yesterday

Personally, I'd much rather go to Madrid in the winter than in summer. It can get unpleasantly hot any time from May to September.

My mate starts with swissport middle of May and has around 2 weeks training room before 4 weeks shadowing so I would expect to see double the people needed at most aircraft for at least the next 6-8 weeks until everyone is trained for the summer
