The WMI flight then positioned back to NCL empty with crews to carry out the NCL-WMI leg. The learjet also positioned back with relief crew for the 2 Ryanair LPL based aircraft,

I guess that'll just be because Ryanair have a 'station' at EDI or GLA or wherever it went, making things easier for them handling-wise.
I agree though, that the decline of Teesside Airport is very sad indeed. A Ryanair station long before Newcastle was.

Was DTV called Newcastle-South by any chance

Diverted to Prestwick, the aircraft then flew back to NCL.

Presumably easier to go to PIK, knowing it will be quieter than EDI/GLA at the time of day.

Newcastle had also taken in at least two Ryanair Diversions destined for Liverpool and one Jet 2 scheduled to Leeds Bradford due to fog at those airports earlier.
Wonder if DTV was equipped (Fire/Emergency/Border staff etc...) to take 737s and logistics for onward transition of passengers at the times all this played out?

Was the Ryanair flight to Gdansk due to fly throughout the winter? as it seems to be not bookable now.

They seem to be pulling BFS-LGW for the winter let's hope they aren't pulling anything from ncl

I think GDN/FAO cancellations over the winter may be due to the crewing shortage/roster cock up, Ryanair is cutting 34 routes and 18,000 flights between October and March

It is indeed down to the recent issues, routes return early spring

While there will be a degree of pragmatism around which routes have been cut, it won't be the high performers

I find it interesting that some of their "important" routes, such as BFS-LGW, EDI/GLA-STN and WMI-WRO/GDN are among the routes cancelled

FR had already announced that they were dropping WMI-GDN and WMI-WRO due to a disagreement with the warsaw airport authority

Thats mainly due to WAW (Chopin) airport authority - not crewing issues.

Newcastle route flies into/from WMI (Modlin)

For the domestic routes, because there is an another airline to accommodate pax it might have made the decision easier.

Or the fact that they had heavy competition may have made the routes among the most marginal.
