Have Thomas Cook dropped a few routes from NCL for summer 20? TFS seems to be dropped from 28th April. Quite surprised if so.

Do you have a link to the source of this information?
Sorry - nothing public. I've seen a copy of the schedule though - and can't believe someone had enough time on their hands to make that up.

February reduction in numbers would also be down to the cancellation of Brussels and Stavanger from the 18th. Nothing more heard about the possible Munich route from Eurowings?

TCX for this summer pulled what was planned on a320 as was already on sale

next summer should be better as they can change the days of routes operating etc so should be interesting what they do

From the KLM website due "Unfavourable winds at Amsterdam" - first inbound MME flight cancelled as well. In railway language, the wrong type of wind along the runway!

Are the summer 2020 routes finalised by Thomas Cook? If the reductions in routes from Newcastle by Thomas Cook do happen, does this mean the base will be going down to two aircraft or one aircraft?

Maybe Jet2 will fill more of the void with extra rotations if they can.

But it does seem we are on the verge of another downturn, Newcastle and the North East usually feels the pinch first and that looks like it’s starting to show with the recent route cancellations/reductions from Ryanair, Easyjet, BA and now potentially Thomas Cook.

Update: I tweeted Thomas Cook which I know social media teams aren’t always accurate but they replied saying they have reviewed routes from Newcastle and they have withdrawn routes for summer 2020.

This is old news about TCX they have dropped the leased Avion/Smartlynx A320 that was here for almost 10 years, REU EFL BOJ MAH KGS RHO BJV LPA all vanished this summer , Next summer IBZ HER seem to go as an extra FUE is added , DLM is daily and the weekday NBE is operated by TCX instead of Nouvelair like this year. The base remains x2 A321 next summer no different to this year and as someone already said the fact Jet2 have passed Thomas Cook in terms of size its not really a suprise.

Slightly bizarre that G-EZRZ had two diversions yesterday on two separate routes. Crew issues?
