I've only flown Jet2 once, a couple of months ago to Pisa/Florence which aren't exactly famous for their beaches so it can be done.
it just reinforces NCL's reputation for being a bucket and spade airport but if that's what the localpopulation want.
But the market is only so big and they will end up competing with themselves.

I guess that if ncl could provide lots of business class passengers you'd have no problem attracting different airles??

I see KL960 was very late today.
Anyone know what the minimum time is to get a case off 1 flight and onto another (at AMS in this case).

Thanks, but is that not just for people or does it apply to baggage as well?

I was told minimal changes to services at Gatwick - expect the same as this year with a couple of changes (Rhodes and Aarlborg going).Can't see it happening in the short term.

I’m presuming those ground roles for Jet 2 are above wing vacancies, still no sign of them taking ground handling in house?

I would be surprised if Faro and Malaga and the Canaries didnít come back next year, unless itís been a total blood bath this year to those destinations. Itís interesting that Gdańsk and Wroclaw are on sale though. Iím not sure about Madrid, itís already been dropped for winter this year so that may not come back. Which is a shame, as Madrid is a lovely city, but it is a route that the North East public are more limited in numbers in who wishes to visit, which unfortunately has been the case with other city break locations. It would be nice if Budapest came back and a route to Venice in the summer.

Absolutely not, however, Jet2 will be getting those red steps at NCL soon as well as red baggage carts. Red bloody everything.

I assume he means "own-branded" apron equipment, hence the red tide. ;-)
Q - why not blue and white steps and baggage kit as well? Some kind of prejudice? Lol!

So they will be having their own branded equipment but using Swissport staff to operate the equipment and still do all below wing activities? If so, that seems a little strange to me. Jet2 are at a size now where other bases went in house below the wing.

As Swissport have a monopoly on ground handling at the airport it makes it more difficult for the airlines, what are the choices now if they donít like what Swissport is providing. Self handle, try and get another company into the airport, leave or just put up with Swissport service or take them to court if breaking any SLAs?

I'm sure Jet2 would be at least considering taking ground ops in house, they already do it at EMA which has 7 based a/c like NCL, maybe this is the prelude to it?

What goes on with KL959/960?

It is late almost every single day and as often as not loses another 15mins with the NCL turnaround.
