Mainly stuff we've heard before - one bit new to me:

Mr Jewsbury said: “When we first went into Newcastle there were a few raised eyebrows in the industy but since 2007 we have grown the operation, from the Airbus A330 to the Boeing 777 and carried over 242,000 passengers, 24,000 in business class. The seat factor is getting to 80% so we’re really pleased with that.
Emirates passenger numbers from Newcastle take off by 25% in five years

Equates to just over 78% average load in business class. Not too bad

Last summer season will be 2019 is what I meant. Sorry I should have been more clear. Cabin crew have already been told and offered other bases. All will become clear when Thomas Cook Summer 2020 goes on sale. No TCX aircraft at NCL.

400,000 seat loss that would be ? Very suprised Newcastle would go as its one of Thomas Cooks original bases way back from Flying Colours / Airtours / My Travel & JMC days.

If that turns out to be true, all the NaySayers who shouted Never Never Never are going to look pretty dumb.
Would Jet2 want or even need TCXs aircraft? I would doubt it.
​​​​​​Interesting times ahead?

I believe this is what is happening but be careful of what is posted here as crews do read this and base isn't closing fully

Summer 2019
TCX will deploy 2x A321 (fact)
the smartlynx aircraft is to be based by Jet2 (rumoured)
understand that TCX holidays will buy some seats on the aircraft

Winter 2019/20
No Based aircraft (rumoured)
flying done by extra flights using Jet2 or TCX Aircraft from other bases or position flighya

Summer 2020
2x A321

the crew have been told the base isn't to close but then who really knows

Give your head a shake, man - which posts are you referring to? All I can see is comments about TCX already selling flights in 2020 so asking for confirmation/sources.

During the winter there is a fair amount of duplication between routes, and a/c spend time sitting doing nothing, so if TCX can make better use elsewhere it makes sense to buy seats on other operators.

Thomas Cook are also here Winter 19/20 thats also a fact and runs as far as 30th April. Nothing on sale afterwards as its not on sale yet. It would not suprise me to see the winter based aircraft go because alot of Thomas Cooks A321s are heading to Canada now with 8 going this winter , 3 already over in Montreal.

TUI have stated in the pre-launch pack that more flights will be added between now and next April when full S20 program goes on sale. That could mean any airport though and not necessarily NCL.
