Well all is quite at SOU,which isn't unusual nowadays,other airports such as Southend,Bournemouth,and even Doncaster announce new routes and more to.the point increasingly pax numbers!. And Southampton? Well decreasing PAX,declining routes and no prospect of any new routes.What is going on?,simply very little!!!

Can anyone tell me how you set up an ignore list on here? I've had enough of a certain poster's mindless ramblings but can't see how to ignore them.

You may not like another poster's opinions, but you have to admit they have the right to express them.

Oh yeah I'd stand by their right to express their opinions, but I was always under the impression there was a way to ignore individual posters, and in the case of the one I'm thinking of, I've just had enough of them.

I think just need to be patient, is probably alot going on behind the scenes right now. If and when the extension gets done pax numbers will increase, remember the whole Virgin Connect thing is still ongoing so am sure when finalised will be new routes and again increasing pax numbers (which will happen prior to the extension) Even with expansion I genuinely think SOU is a very long way off from a LCC though, if at all, due to its existing limitations (operating hours) time will tell, but SOU will start to show growth from S20 onwards I'm certain.

Think we have seen the VS approach to route reductions and doubt SOU will get any additions over and above the already announced ie core UK trunk routes and slimmed down regional France. Therefore the airport cannot rely on VS for passenger growth over the coming months and years and is clearly the main reason to get the extension in place asap. With regards to a LCC, i'm sure they are already discussing with airline/s and will want someone in place for April '21 to back up their growth aspirations so a long way off I don't agree with. Airport operating hours are hardly limiting when considering the possible addition of x 8 A320 arrivals & departures daily that will make up the 1m pax increase and should slot in between a 0630 - 2230 operation without too many issues, thatís only an additional 1 flight in or out per hour to the current schedule although realise that any outside factors such as weather/delays might cause problems!

I 100% agree. I am starting to think itís a fake account set up by a BOH poster to antagonise people. Even a mentally deranged person wouldnít post the same message over and over again. The fact Ďití managed to show no remorse when the planning permission was indeed lodged says it all. In fact Ďití managed to put a negative spin on it. Freedom of speech of course exists, but there is only one narative and itís designed to derail what was otherwise a healthy thread. Perhaps if a number of us posters request that the mods ban its account we might get rid of it? You have to be a pretty sad individual to take enjoyment from trolling.

Handy if you are looking for fights out of Southampton where Aer Lingus do not fly from.

I'm a supporter of SOU due to the mostly good airport experience, and use it around 6 times a year for flights to the CI and NI.

Did a GCI and back trip yesterday, and never seen it so quiet when I passed through at 0700-0800. I was almost on my own going though security.

Hopefully livens up a bit when the ski flights start at the weekend.

Just curious as to why SOU did not take the 3 charter flights from Tenerife South / North yesterday bringing back passengers off the Ventura ship , which had gone tech in Tenerife and not now due back into Southampton port until the weekend

The aircraft in question were 2 Enter air and 1 Travel service B 738 . These aircraft operated into BOH instead

I thought SOU could handle this type of aircraft especially inbound ?

The runway is currently too short to land the standard B738 with anything like a full pax load. The Short Field Performance variant could probably do so, as RYR's operation at SEN shows, but maybe both Enter Air and Travel Service aircraft don't have that package.

Indeed, and as these folks were coming off a cruise ship, they will doubtless have a LOT of luggage
(speaking from personal experience having cruised on Ventura and other P&O ships 5 times now)

You're having a laugh surely :P
Best thing I have read all year on here....

3 x 189 seat 737-800 inbound from Tenerife to land on a very wet SHORT runway - ?
I wish lol
A 738 will never be able to op economically from/to SOU as is...

FYI even an A319/320 to/from Geneva on a little Ski flight can sometimes be weight restricted at SOU

A Jota RJ100 came in from Malaga and out direct to TFS on Monday. Not sure if that was for the stranded cruise ship or not.

Even with the proposed extension the LDA won't change,so any pax from cruises that return airborne will still land at BOURNEMOUTH.
The extension relies on take off on RW20 being extended for 320/738 fully loaded and therefore feasible for operations,LDA still limits the type of aircraft ,which will have a substantial effect on who can operate,given the extension is finally approved
