Air France changes

W18/19 will se CityJet operating 2 of the 3 daily flights to CDG using the RJ85 again. They will be operating the nightstopper and the late morning rotations with Hop operating the afternoon flight with E170/190 a/c

CityJet - Hopefully that will stop the need to leave a lot of bags in Paris on the 11am, full of connecting pax's, Paris!! Plus the Hop crew's have some of the worst customer service I have seen!

A bit of chatter on the Teesside thread about car-parts flights at the moment. Was that an Antonov I saw from a distance, taking off at approx 1 - 1.30pm? I know there was a Hungarian Saab 340 in a week or so ago.

No - Irish Air Corp CASA 235 or maybe the Eurowings DHC-8

On a quiet afternoon why should it take an hour from landing to get out of the front door! Couldn't believe the fiasco today with ques at the new passport machines and the famous wait for the baggage.

The IAC CASA-235 sounds like the one. I was passing Belsay when I saw it in the distance heading west.
Thanks for the info. My aircraft recog skills need brushing up

S19 schedule has just been updated. Think the only difference is that all flights will be operated by Hop. A Cityjet AR8 operated one rotation daily this summer

For many years now NCL has been trying to attract more and more flights and passengers without the infrastructure to cope with them.

And, as I mentioned before, you should take a look at the machine they use to get the baggage on and off the planes. It's unbelievably slow.
Which wouldn't be so bad if the people/person on the plane loading it manage to get on more than 1 bag per minute. The handlers at the bottom spend a long time just standing there waiting for the next bag to get to them.

Which means NCL should get a touch of realism for their schedules. KLM arrives at 12.45pm and departs again at 13.15pm??? Don't make me larf.
In theory, the incoming flight could easily land at 12.30pm but I'm not so sure it manages that regularly so it almost redefines optimism to think NCL could turn a plane round in 30mins.

BM will replace the ER3 aircraft based at NCL with a ER4 from 28OCT. The change in aircraft will result in a 30% increase in capacity according to the article. BM currently plan to operate in 2019.

Seeing as thatís the minimum allowed ground time for a KLM Embraer aircraft, then yes itís more than acheiveable and done so on a regular basis, EZY and Ryanair have even quicker turnarounds with aircraft almost twice the size that youíll be surprised to know NCL also manages to turn aircraft around in.

I suspect driven by the fact that BMI are transferring an ER3 (XJ) to Loganair but good news never the less.

All figures have been "wiped" - Wonder why the airport may not want these published? https://www.newcastleairport.com/abo...er-statistics/

Also Consultative Committee Meeting Minutes have not been published since last year (4th drop down menu in link) : :https://www.newcastleairport.com/abo...ive-committee/

Probably somebody has been looking at the "clicks" and decided it's not cost effective to update.

I was watching that flight frequently before I last went on holiday and didn't see a 30 minute turnaround on one single occasion.
I looked on the day I posted this and the incoming flight was 10 mins late so KLM would have been trying to get it turned round asap.
It took 50 minutes.

Where as todayís was turned around in 28 minutes, Yesterday was 38 minutes, Iím not sure where youíre getting your information, Iím presuming flight radar or the airport website, Both of these show landing and take off times and not block times which are used to calculate turnaround time. They also donít show the doors closed times so youíd be unable to tell if the aircraft was sat on stand closed up awaiting a slot time which going into busy airports like Amsterdam are frequent.

Donít get me wrong Iím far from being an apologist for NCL, thereís a lot that needs to be improved on however you need to make sure you have the accurate data and background information before you start criticising.

I was getting my info from Flightradar along with arrival times at AMS so I do take your point.

Traffic on the Brussels service has been rising steadily over recent months, recovering from the terrorist related incident which led to a sharp initial fall in passengers and a frequency reduction. Remember that this route used to support 3 flights daily. Stavanger is steady and, of course, uses the same based aircraft.

Jet 2-------- Looks like Jet 2 are ending the summer schedules/ starting the winter with 5 x 738(plus1) and 2 x733(minus1) based.
One of the current 738 being a new one!!.


Also notice the 733 is being used on some TFS rotations instead of the usual 738.
