Disappointing that the airport isn't keeping its website updated

airport timetables hasn't been updated since January now

spoke to airport end of April they said they were working on it

Summer 2019 been on sale now for 8+ weeks with some new routes but little advertising

shame to not be using this powerful tool which the public and travel agents use

All BA are doing is getting rid of the Flights that get Cancelled and Flights that are quite clearly not as busy as the others,

Aren't these just the usual winter/summer schedule changes we see every year from BA/KLM?

ash666 I do wonder, though, what sort of person travels in business class on the AMS flight if they are not going on anywhere.

Economy 99, business 829.

Are there really that many stupidly rich people that would pay an extra 700 just to get on and off first with a snack on the flight for a 1 hour trip? Even a slightly bigger luggage allowance doesn't get close to justifying that.

Are they stupidly rich or just stupid? Or have egos the size of Everest?

Or some other genuine reason?
Been away for a while, but some serious garbage been posted in the interim ! case in point what on earth is this inaccurate rant all about ? There is unlikely to be any correlation between affluence & stupidity, indeed quite the reverse. I would have thought given all your travels you would have worked it out, as an example, it is possible to in advance to purchase a business class return NCL-AMS-NYC for c.1,500, then maybe it's those up front who are the ones that are smiling

I have got no idea what your point is, unless you completely failed to understand my original post.

Anyway, Nighthawk117 gave a perfectly satisfactory answer.

Now that the Carlisle opening has been put back to the 3rd September maybe Aer Lingus needs to reconsider its reduction in the Dublin service from Newcastle

If the Metro/Nexus won't run trains to get pax to the airport for 4.30am check-ins could the airport not rent a couple of trains and drivers and the lines/network for a couple of hours?

After all, the major train companies effectively hire the tracks which are run by another company.

Apologies for the spotterish question, but anyone know why the Thomas Cook from Dalaman diverted to Manchester in the small hours today? There was lowish visibility at NCL but nothing too serious, and other aircraft seemed to be making it in...

It diverted to refuel I believe. I could be wrong however.

Given the way the world is going providing a 24/7 service probably will happen in the next 10 years - look at the London Underground for example

Problem is it'll probably be a max of 2 per hour.

Most people will figure cari can get them from anywhere in N Tyneside to the Airport in about 30 minutes at 04:00 and roll over and pay the taxi rather than have to get up earlier to get a train

My problem is having the confidence that the taxi will turn up.
I'm sick of being told by the office every 10 minutes that the taxi is on it's way and is very close only for them to say after 30 or 40 minutes that they can't get a driver to take the job.

I agree, but that won't be down to airport demand.

Just figure how many people need to be at the airport for 04.30 and then how many would actually want to use the Metro.

The answer to this is very simple, change taxi company, many now have apps via text that download the drivers position in real time. If you are really paranoid then order one an hour earlier!
