There's an unfinished repair on it, it didn't look as if it was bird strike though. More likely to be from GSE damage down-route.

Still a fairly large drop over August 2018 - over 16 thousand less passengers going through the terminal. Did we have a bug reduction in flights summer 19 over summer 18? Or is it just the general downtrend due to headwinds which this region always suffers from first?

We had a bug reduction in Cramlington too. Used a can of 'Raid' - that sorted them!
Even the loss of a TCX A320 is likely to only account for 12,000 max at 28 days on 2 rotations every day. I wonder where the other losses were.

Loss of routes and reductions in frequency on some of our scheduled routes.....e.g. Amsterdam, Dublin, Southampton, Cardiff, Berlin, Warsaw etc.etc.

TUI to increase ex UK capacity by 2 millions seats according to Travel Weekly. More flights from Newcastle among others, wonder if we will see another based aircraft?

The collapse of Thomas Cook has prompted Tui to raise capacity from the UK by two million seats.In-house airline Tui Airways will also create jobs for more than 100 pilots and over 200 cabin crew, with many being recruited from the failed rival. The extra two million seats cover Turkey, Greece, Balearics, Canaries, Egypt, Mexico and Florida.

Tui will offer more 7, 10, 11 and 14-night durations and more flights from Manchester, Doncaster Sheffield, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow airports.

From the airport today.
"[color=left=#1d2129]Did you know from the 28th October the first flight from NCL to [/color]Heathrow Airport[color=left=#1d2129] departs at 7am, getting into Heathrow at 8.25am. Perfect for those 9am meetings! [/color]"

What planet are they on?
30 mins min to get out of the airport then an hour on the tube to central London.
9am meeting long since finished.

A planet that doesn't revolve around central London?

I think we will definitely see 4 based maybe a 5th then no sunwing next year?

I expect jet2 to add at least 1 aircraft also maybe even 2 they won’t want to miss out on getting the extra pax

just lets hope they don’t overkill the market now

This is a big improvement from the usual winter timetable. In recent years the first LHR flight has left NCL at about 6am in the Summer but normally 7:50 in winter. This had made flying further afield difficult as you couldn’t get a connecting flight that left LHR before 10:15, now it is 9:25.

Must be a while since you flew to London but without checked luggage it’s 2 minutes from leaving the plane to domestic arrivals and the Heathrow Express takes 15 minutes to Paddington.

It's not so much the timing as the airport's comment about how it is great for 9am meetings showing how out of touch they are with their passengers and the realities of travelling.
I defy anyone to get to a meeting in central London by 9am.
From an 8.25am arrival it would be a lot more than 2 mins to get to domestic arrivals (it will be more than that to get the doors open, even if the 8.25am is at the stand), then walk to the Heathrow Express, then wait for the train, then get to Paddington, then get to the meeting.....
The vast majority would be going on from Paddington to elsewhere in London as well.

They said along the lines of great/perfect for 9am meetings.
A seriously hope you aren't saying it implies somewhere other than central London. That would be just silly.

I say "along the lines of" because it looks as though they have realised the idiocy of their post and removed it.
But not before MANY people replied thinking the same as me.

They’d be far better off doing similar to what they’ve done with Bristol, if I remember correctly and someone will correct me if I’m wrong, and that would be to incorporate some of the higher, in demand routes with the LH schedule and bringing in the 788.

I agree we will likely get one additional aircraft, perhaps leased, and then a few W patterns.

there was talk that for next summer the 788 was between ncl and brs and BRS won it. They will need to get a few more 789’s first to free up a 788 for Ncl

This summer a B787-8 has been based at BRS for five days each week operating to Cancun (2 rotations per week), Sanford, Dubrovnik, Larnaca and Dalaman. In recent summers it was there for two/three days each week operating to Cancun, Sanford and (last year) Punta Cana.

In summer 2020 it will be based for the entire season operating to Cancun (2 rotations per week), Sanford, Larnaca, Dalaman, Burgas, Las Palmas, Palma (2 rotations per week), Heraklion and Antalya.
