The last 2 times that I have arrived at NCL from BFS, we arrived at Gate 7, but were bussed to Gate 1 instead of being able to walk in through the domestic arrivals door. It would have been quicker to walk to Gate 1! Is there a reason for this happening?

Yes, the general public generally get lost between the gate and the aircraft parked immediately outside the gate. Imagine them trying to walk across an airfield in search of the domestic arrivals door.

Easyjet donít want passengers to mix between domestic and international. The outbound flight must have been departing internationally and the gate was boarding. For once, the airport isnít to blame, itís actually easyjet. Stands 1,2 & 6 are the only stands where you are able to walk off the aircraft while it is departing internationally having arrived domestic. Hope that clears that up for you.

No - it's not easyJet who don't want passengers mixing - why would they be bothered? And easyJet don't allocate stands.

This is the SOP for domestic arriving flights when the same aircraft is departing internationally or if there is another international flight departing from one of the gates on the 'domestic' side of the pier.

Itís not an EasyJet request, itís to do with mixing domestic and international passengers in the same area, as annoying and silly it seems to coach a flight round the back of another stand to a different door itís something nor the airline nor ground staff has any control of.

On another note interesting press release from Loganair about the new ABZ Route. Theyíve made it very clear theyíre going after Eastern...

Bussing inbound to another gate and outbound through the adjacent gate/door is to comply Home office and DFT dictate to ensure sterile security checks are maintained.

Yeap the UK agencies think we need screening about thirty times - frankly it’s way overboard imho.

Still we are where we are because of a small number of deluded and selfish loonies that have little empathy for others and even less for human life in general.

I agree 100% and every dropped sweet paper has the (any and all) airport in lockdown until it is thoroughly checked to see if its a bomb in disguise.

I await the first (of many) posts from people saying, ''don't you want to be safe?''

Yawn - can I be the first to say "Oh - another positive post from Ash"?

If there comes a time when there is something positive to say, don't worry, I will say it.

Bit early to call that - 319's last Tues/Wed/Thurs, but now back to 318's the last three days

Does anyone knows what aircraft will be coming for the European Rugby Finals this week? I see Ryanair have some extra flights from Dublin, and Aer Lingus looks like it’s added a flight from its website as it’s showing two flights listed. One of them looks mainline aircraft too. BA doesn’t appear to have done anything different in terms of aircraft or additional flights but they have made the last flight later on the Saturday. Anyone know of extra flights from France for the Challenge Cup final on the Friday?

You wonít find anything of great interest for sale, only additional Ryanair and Stobart for EI flights. Most of the interesting stuff is being operated as charters.

Looking like thereís going to be Aer Lingus A320/321s, Nordica (LOT) CRJ-900s, Capartair F100s, Neos 737s and Cityjet RJ85s and Air Nostrum CRJ-200 visiting at various points throughout the weekend.

We have some knowledgeable people on here. I fly from NCL about once a fortnight and waiting for the delayed LHR flight this morning, two random questions came into my head:

1) What is the plan for the old long stay car park (the one to the left when you reach the long stay car park exit gates)? At the moment it appears to be used for storing meet & greet cars but will the space revert back to a normal car park when the new meet & greet facility is completed?
2) What is the reason behind barring passengers who have taken the right hand door at the entrance to the departure gates (next to the downstairs WH Smith) from re-entering the main terminal area? I can't think it would be due to departing/arriving passengers mixing or any potential security reasons but maybe someone knows better.

The doors are in place to stop arriving domestic passengers going into the airside departure lounge. This also like you mentioned to stop or at least reduce domestic and international passengers from 'mixing' with each other. Also helps arriving passengers know where to go and not accidentally end up where they shouldn't be.
