Big drop in movements there but nice increase strange to see such a difference

lets see where the ups are etc
I'm guessing the EK will have a seen a big increase again maybe

are you sure the movements aren't meant to be the other way around

I see there is a Danish Air Transport MD82 on its way in from Esbjerg. Any idea why, and when was the last 'Mad Dog' to visit NCL? Apologies for the 'spotter' type question

The movements are correct the only increase for June 18 is in the "others" category which is 1239 up from 1153...every other sector is down.

another increase in pax against a drop in movements
this seems to be a trend, DTVA is in a similar situation. What is the factor in the drop of movements? Flying club/light aircraft movements?

"INTERNATIONAL" was the biggest faller...i.e. the loss of one frequency to Amsterdam at five days a week loses 42 frequencies a month (June) add in Dublin, and Copenhagen and it quickly adds up...In "DOMESTIC" one daily frequency to Southampton was lost. that's 60 movements in the month.

It wasnít cancelled - itís an indefinite delay and passengers have been accommodated over night with the flight due rescheduled for tomorrow morning at 09AM.

G-TUIA went tech in Edinburgh, before flying down, after returning from Cancun early this morning. Iím not sure if itíll be up and running to operate the CUN tomorrow or if thereís two new aircrafts coming into operate the rescheduled CUN rotation as well as Orlando.

So is this due to a shortage of seats or something else ?
BA cut the flights to Newcastle to free up aircraft to offer an expanded schedule from Gatwick due to the acquisition of the Monarch slots and not having enough aircraft to operate those flights so Heathrow based aircraft along with Titan and Eastern operating the schedule from there. The smaller schedule has meant demand has increased for the remaining flights pushing the flights up into higher price brackets, which is good for yield to BA. However less flights and erratic schedule unfortunately just start a cycle of people not booking because they donít have flights they want to then a reduction in passenger numbers which then reduces the flights even more.

The schedule is showing stable at 5 flights a day during the winter and at present itís showing 6 flights for Summer 19 but they wonít have finalised summer 19 yet so it be interesting to see what happens.

Can somebody remind me of these halcyon days when BA LHR flights were cheap? Might have been some low fares available off peak, but the early and late flights are usually full fare

And much less choice using Air Miles these days unless you want to get to central London at 10.30pm.

FR3492

Anyone know the reason for the delay on this morning's FR3491 and return FR3492 from Arrecife?

(First post after years of lurking, prepared to be trolled!) Cheers

Interesting, had it on good authority that Flybe and Eastern were separating again soon, can't remember the date mind you.
As for the Eurowings, anyone know why it's changing back to the airbus? Loads we're always around the 60-80 mark before it went to the dash anyway.

I really wish the Eurowings timings were a bit better, I have been to DUS on business 5 times this year from NCL & MME, all on BA or KLM. The Eurowings flight times mean that the morning is pretty much a write off, a 14:00 arrival at DUS means there is not much time in the day left by the tine I get to my destination and the flight home requires a sometimes unnecessary overnight stay. However prices can be really good to DUS (especially if you are connecting on) but this is less of an issue for business travellers.

Maybe there is some good cargo business on this route?

Well it seems that the "stable" Winter reduced to 5 flights per day from 6 per day schedule has also become erratic as per this summers schedule.
From what I have seen most days its down further to 4 or even 3. Not all days operate the same timings.

If its true I can only assume demand has dramatically reduced. Or if it has not it will now.

What is happening to the busiest route out of NCL.
