Number of bookings is probably the main factor - they tend to not get huge number of bookings on these flights until the couple of weeks before the flight - so fewer would be affected. Also many alternatives from London area, including flights, coach and the train.

Monarch effects on newcastle ( short/long term)

With monarch gone how will this effect newcastle?

I know they weren't based at newcastle but pax from the north east will have travelled
To Leeds Manchester for cheaper fares.

Will the other carriers now fill the gaps at man,BHX etc or will fares increase to make better profit margins will may stop north east pax travelling south?

Will airlines now focus on putting planes and routes into Manchester to increase options rather than start any planned routes which were from newcastle ( Ryanair)

Will Ryanair and easyJet now look at putting extra flights into Manchester so ncl has to wait longer ?

The last big failure I can remember was excel which effected ncl and we are only now getting back to the pax numbers and it's taken 10 years!!

TCX have said they will base 1 aircraft at LBA now replacing 1 of the 2 aircraft monarch had which is why I'm asking the questions on how this may effect ncl over the next few seasons

Could go that way, or it could be that MAN has been oversupplied and the existing airlines will consolidate and not look to replace MON capacity to try and increase yields. This may help NCL as prices at MAN (and LBA) creep up.

Not much of an effect IMO Jet2 EZY TCX may base an extra aircraft here or there but that will be about it. With TCX basing a aircraft down in LBA it may even benefit NCL if they choose to base for example the Avion A320 there and we end up with x3 A321. Excel was a big player here at the time and obviously really effected us as other bases like BHX will feel now Monarchs collapse.

Interesting to see that BA is reducing frequencies next Summer at BHD, EDI and GLA. Newcastle seem to be the same for the moment though.

To be honest about loss of Monarch I think most of MAN routes will be gaining extra Easy and Jet2 with probably 5 or 6 aircraft added and Jet2 look to be adding another A330 but I would guess flights more expensive than this year

For GLA just a single early sun AM rotation per week, no great loss I wouldnt imagine.

Does AF/KLM have an info desk at the airport?
I've just had an email my flight has been changed and shows me the original and new flights and they look identical?

I have had previous emails from British Airways in the past and I have just turned up at the airport as usual after checking in online before departing home so I would assume this is similar to yourself, just check the KLM website using your reference to check your active flight details.

Ok, ta.
I did that but can't see the difference to the cancelled and active flight apart from losing my seat booking.
It's the 2nd leg from CDG that has been "changed".
I sent a pm to AF's Facebook page but they haven't bothered replying.
Wish I'd used KLM again.....

Never too sure if I will get through to Paris, ouch.

I sent a pm to KLM on FB and they have replied already asking for more details.
They are so much better than AF at communicating.

Mind, it would still be nice to know if they have an info desk at NCL. They used to but not so sure now.

Can't remember seeing one on a recent visit... Could you not just call the airport switchboard and ask the question?

Good idea! (said seriously, not sarcastically).
