Checked the aircraft on FR24 - arrived TFS 18.54.
It was a medical divert FYI. Crew went out of hours subsequently.

Appreciate it’s pretty early but has anyone got an idea of the % load for LS to EWR this year? Currently offering £205 return (including baggage) for the upcoming flights and I have heard from a friend who works on the ground at NCL that they’re not looking to be fantastic.

Hopefully we can continue pulling in whatever routes we can get it, regardless of frequency, next year.

They are offering them prices from elsewhere including LBA & MAN. We are fortunate to have 9 departing flights to New York this winter with EMA BFS and GLA only having the one or 2. Looking at the seat maps they are about 40 seats per flight short in November and most are single seats dotted about the cabin.

probably just the usual hope that NCL will feature in the prsss release saying 4th 737, new short haul destinations and Punta Cana added etc etc which isnt just good for the airport but suggests the region is doing well.

But more often than not usually no mention of NCl or very limited change inferring the opposite for the local economy.

splits the readership on here and usually leads to a lot of negatively from what starts as a hopeful post 🤗

Right, so the comment meant hopes for expansion for NCL? Don't think anybody would argue with that, but it could have been inferred that the poster considered TUI's position at NCL was in doubt.

Whats intresting to me is why TUI wants to go first and so far infront of the rest ?

has TUI decided it's time to get ahead of the likes of Jet2holidays now

with Jet2 expecting to announce routes from BRS,Cardiff for summer 2020 is TUI now going to start attacking back ?

also TCX has for 2019 reduced holidays on offer from all over the U.K.
Again does TUI see this as get in first with the early bookers to win % growth

Is there evidence for this or is it just another PPRuNe urban myth?

That was on a Wiki site which anyone can edit and put up their favourite pipe dreams - like Jet2 buying Condor's 757s. That and other fairytales.
Cant see it myself - but never say never.

2019 will be Thomas Cook's last year at Newcastle. They are pulling all ops from there after next Summer.

I always thought that Newcastle had always been one of its more successful bases...for own aircraft operations. It's the third party season charter cancellations that are causing the cutbacks next year.

I understand that German operator Bin Air....a regular visitor to NCL have suspended operations
