Where are you getting your data from - since the start of August, FR24 has KL959 late 8 times into NCL and KL960 late 4 times into AMS.

If it's leaving ncl 15 late it could be a slot at Amsterdam meaning less holding time if it's getting into Amsterdam more or less on time

Me? We're off to FUE next May and already concerned about what kind of a mess the no deal/some deal/any deal Brexit will create for holidaymakers --.e. us.

NCL-LHR

Good to see some extra frequency back on the route. although its still inconsistent. No 9 am departure today and no 9am and 11.30am departure tommorrow. In fact the first flight up from LHR (Thurs) arrives NCL 14.35. so no arrivals before then followed, by 4 arrivals pm.
Then it seems to settle down a bit but some of the timings are questionable ie some so close together. Although I realise they are slot sitters.

Unfortunatley the coming winter reductions from 6 per weekday to 3 or 4 still apply. Perhaps this may change nearer the time.

The fares recently on many flights have been extortionate. Due to the reduction in seats.

If you booked throgh the holiday arm, you'll have nothing to worry about. In the (un)likely scenario you can't go because of flying rights, everything gets refunded.
If it's just a seat you bought, that'll get refunded but the hotel/ transfers may not be so generous

I think travellers have everything to worry about.......European airports have two queues for passports....EU and Others....take a look at the length of the "others" line (which will be ours after March 19) next time you fly .....and be worried. Leaving Athens recently, we went straight through but the "others" could easily have missed their flights by the delay and length of the line.

I don't know why they can't do that with the Irish border, one lane for GB and Irish passports and another for Others.

Although flying to FUE in May and therefore having to endure at FUE airport whatever disasters the Brexit throws our way as a Third World Country, we have booked NO AIR TRAVEL HOLIDAYS for beyond that - just in case.
I have no desire to stand in a Queue for Aliens for more than an hour whilst Custome / Border decide to allow us through. We stopped flying to Orlando Int 3 yrs ago because of that after a 90minute wait to get through Homeland Security, and it looks like Eu (Canaries in particular) will have to go the same way.
So Butlins looks promising. Lol.

i can’t see it happening to that extent for the Canaries, personally. Tourism is a huge income for people living in the Canaries, with a large number of tourists being British, and I think this would cause a massive headache for the Canarian government if this was to become the case. That isn’t me saying we would be able to go through the EU queue but I think wait times would definitely be addressed.

There are too many “what ifs” for my liking.

And you think any of that bothers Barnier and the Great EU?
My view is that you are probably correct. Fuerteventura for example generates over 2 million tourist visits a year, probably 25% of whom are from UK.
If WE take our bat and ball in and go elsewhere non EU like upcoming Turkey or back like lemmings to Egypt or Tunisia say, the C.I. economy would suffer quite badly. Personally i dont fancy Hurghada, winter or summer so here's hoping a bit of sense prevails.

Conversely, the same problem will exist for EU citizens travelling to the UK , which will not be very popular and could be very harmful to this country. In all the discussions I have read about Brexit, no one seems to be addressing or seems to have given much thought to this potentially major problem. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I'm sure there's plenty in JetBlast willing to discuss the topic - can we get back on track?

You do realise the Canaries are Spanish but not in the EU rather like our off shore Channel isles !

Wiki: "The Canaries are among the outermost regions (OMR) of the European Union proper"
and
"The
Canary Islands are a Spanisharchipelago off the African coast which form one of the 17 Autonomous Communities of Spain–the country's principal first-level administrative division. They are outside the EU VAT Area. The Canary Islands are the most populated and economically strongest territory of all the outermost regions in the European Union."
