BA Just cancelled its Tehran flights, Id expect these are the slot sitters for them, they were originally planned as positional flights but it seems its been decided theyll now be revenue.

Would anyone know why Jet2 flights operating to the Canaries when taking off toward the coast often take a northern turn rather than southern? Seen it a few times and always wondered why?

Sods law, the next flight was LPA and that headed south!

The flight planning computer at Jet2 Operations Control Centre determines the most cost effective route, the system shall take into account factors such as route charges and upper winds, often with no human input. The route towards TLA before turning towards Dublin and the Oceanic route has the lowest route charges.

Not necessarily. Quite often we would have to use 07 which is against the general flow of traffic into, and out of NCL, if 25 is performance limiting. To follow the 07 SID would take you into conflict with arriving traffic. Hence the left turn off 07 to keep separation and to get you above the inbounds.

We could potentially be seeing RYR MAX's around that time too as that's when they get some delivered.

Not all of it - there are a handful of "W" patterns. Same for Jet2.

The 737s will be based from Manchester the whole of winter 2018/19 season so my guess is a W as well.

Anyone know what the 747 is doing at Newcastle this morning? No detail on FR24 other than B744. - Possibly De la Rue or Middle East charter?
