Well it's quieter but it can be bitterly cold - it's high and the wind of the mountains is a bugger......

Just back from SXF yesterday, flight fully packed. Good to see the E-Gates in Use. Could probably do with a few more of them to be fair though. A lot of folk seemed to be struggling with their passports on them

Jamesair, correct! last week of training starts back down at East Mids on Wednesday and I should get my wings on Monday all being well!

GrahamK, has the new arrivals extension opened fully yet? How many e-gates do we have?

Congratulations, are you going to be based back up in Newcastle once you have your wings or will you be flying from elsewhere?

Regarding ground handling, unless Jet2 decide to self handle under the wing (not sure what the numbers required for that to happen are, but Newcastle is now the third smallest base for Jet2, only Belfast and Edinburgh are smaller) we have a monopoly of just Swissport handling. So, prices probably could rise as Swissport have no competition, airlines either then have to self handle, absorb the cost or just pull out the airport. Which isn’t ideal.

I used the e-gates yesterday on my return from Holland. There's 6 iirc and they're very fast. Much faster processing than the ones at Schiphol. There were still 3 booths for non EU etc passengers in operation.

Anyone any ideas why MT1376 went to KVA ? I would of thought a medical diversion but FR24 had it down as NCL-KVA as it took off from Newcastle.

MT1376 NCL-LCA was routed NCL - KVA (TCX86U) KVA - LCA (MT1376) and then LCA - NCL (MT1377) operated by G-TCDD

I'm guessing it was head winds over central Europe, the ground speed did reduce in that area, although I couldn't find any other A321s flying from the UK to Cyprus that needed to stop.

I just hope Easyjet or Ryanair come up with some new routes otherwise 2019 is looking a bit light on growth in pax numbers. At least Jet 2 are expanding...more seats and two new routes.

Is it just me or are there a lot more non-based rotations from EZY on BFS and BRS?

Thomas Cook flight 1496 to Mahon (YL-LCO) should have departed 1.55pm today has been delayed to 10:00am tomorrow morning!
Nice start to the season with leased aircraft.
