Swissport ticket desk may be able to help. But most cases they are limited to what they can do and redirect everyone to the airline’s website.

ash666, could it be an aircraft type change?

What flight are you on?

I'm on AF166 and it looks the same layout from re-booking my seat, still a 777-300ER.

KLM on Facebook were great but had no idea why I got the alert.

AF never bothered replying.

The NCL flights are now a mix of E170/190 for the winter rather than all E1o0. Maybe something to do with that?

Thanks for your input and help.
It was the long haul bit that changed.

I had to re-book the seat on that plane but I had another look yesterday and my booked seat on the CDG-NCL had gone.
I also sent another message to AF via Facebook and again no reply. They may think it's not important to reply to queries but it means I won't ever fly with them again.

I will attempt to send an image....

I still think it's a shame there's not a metro train that will get there for the 4.30am check-ins/bag drops for the busy 6am(ish) flights.

The clue was in the recent exotic helicopter movements

The Prince and his family paying a visit to their Northumberland estate. Hopefully they have a nice time in this miserable weather!

There was a 77W, 77E and BBJ

It's a different family to the usual visitors... Maybe they got jealous of the Dubai lot coming over here all the time and wanted a piece of the Northumberland action!

Maybe they came on chance, just in case there was a football team in the area they could buy.

This was Abu Dhabi Amiri flight and not the regular Dubai air wing. Increased speculation of middle east investment in Newcastle United FC so watch this space.

Leeds Bradford Airport sold to Australian investment fund - Yorkshire Post

Interesting News from our neighbour. Wonder how this will effect route competition etc.

Same Australian fund [AMP Capital] which took over share in Newcastle Airport and where former CEO Dave Laws (now CEO at Leeds Bradford Airport) also took up a role as a part-time Senior Adviser in its international airports business.
Just who is retiring Newcastle Airport boss David Laws? - Chronicle Live

Second from last paragraph from above article:
Now, after 37 highly successful years, Mr Laws is taking a part-time role at AMP Capital as a part-time Senior Adviser in its international airports business.
Note some comments following article are not favourable of Mr Laws!

Not sure if Dave Laws is also still advising AMP Capital.

EI down to 1 daily from next week, sadly losing the early morning feeder for transatlantic. Shame, was really pulling the numbers in recent weeks despite FR price war.

Stobarts moving an extra ATR to SEN with NCL drawing the short straw.
