Seamless and fast transition through NCL yesterday morning (Rush hour) bag drop and through security in about 20 mins or less.

Outbound is usually quick and easy, it's inbound where you have problems, long queues for security (not airports fault I know) and then even longer to wait for bags to come out, spoils the whole Newcastle experience every time.

Re LiamNCL

I always have a good experience flying in and out of NCL.
Just over a week ago my outbound experience was as per LiamNCL speedy check in and Fast Security. In addition everyone I encountered was pleasant and very helpful. ( It was also peak time)

On my return a couple of days ago the experience was also very good. there was short lines at the Border control which was well organised and fast moving. The baggage arrived very quickly indeed.

Having been around a bit I would without doubt say although a small airport NCL is one of the better ones in terms of a pleasant and friendly customer experience.

No I do not work for them.

DH9 you don't go through security on way in??? Border Control yes and but the passport machines reduce the waiting times drastically! Bags are a dynamic of the handling agent but are some of the best you'll experience! From someone who travels a lot NCL is spot on!!

I'm with DH9, ok going out but pretty poor coming back especially the baggage wait.
The only people I can think of who say they are among the best are the handlers themselves.

The baggage handling is alright when the plane has to be turned around. Tends to be slow later in the evening. When the automatic passport gates were introduced it made things slower as many struggled with the machines and they reduced the staff checking the passports in the old way. Hopefully things have settled down now.

The biggest let down on the way out has to be the filthy tables in the bar areas and the constantly out of service escalator from the arrivals pier on the way in. Both easy fixes but been like that for years.

Did a TUI leased Sunwing 737 have an issue today?

Came over Consett on an east-west flightpath (as opposed to the usual North South headings) at what appeared to be a very low level?

Caught me off guard as from the ground it looked like an EZY 737!

I believe it was directed into a wider/ holding turn as other aircraft were also on approach from the west to Runway, therefore keeping safe airspace from others descending on normal pattern over Waskerley and Reservoir areas

Looking at Flight Radar 24 it went around (missed approach) at about 900' on it's first approach to 07 (I don't know why) - you saw it coming around for the second approach, which it landed from.

Not knowing what else was in the circuit for landing at the time but it 'looks' like on the first approach, they overshot the turn point for 07 then couldn't get stabilized on Finals so went around.

From the Chron:Flight TOM643 departed Cancun at 5.20pm on Tuesday and was flying over Jacksonville when it is believed smoke was visible on board the aircraft.One passenger wrote on social media that they were met at the airport in Orlando by "around 30 firefighters" who began investigating the plane.But due to immigration restrictions at Orlando Sanford, passengers were forced to remain on the stationary aircraft for around five hours until it was deemed safe to fly again.TUI has said it hopes passengers will be on their way again on Wednesday evening, but a departure time is still to be confirmed."Once the technical issue was resolved, the captain made the decision to return to Cancun where customers were provided with all inclusive hotel accommodation. The flight is due to depart today.

The Stats for June 2019 are now available on the airport website.

A pretty disappointing set of figures, with movements down from 3941 to 3353 and pax figures falling from 594,241 to 561,594. The airport will be lucky to maintain the 5m plus figure this year.

Reason for the fall??

TCX minus 1 aircraft operating around 15 flights per week?

Probably a factor - but youíve got a few inbounds helping especially with TUI. Youíve also got the prices which in the leisure market are only increasing. Youíve also got the fact itís been a pretty decent last 6/8 weeks weather wise and this can have an affect.

Has there been any reductions on our domestics i.e BA LHR?

That would be all I could suggest - donít think the school holidays were any different last year compared to this year.
