Oh aye... CANX and delays

I have been looking at today's news re. Qatar. An important KLM flight, Cancelled, also, the London city flight, Cancelled? What can business people expect, as they look at the arrivals board today, and see this debarkle?
My colleagues Edinburgh flight has a 3 hour and 20 minute delay. Can someone have the common decency to explain this poor show?

It's called weather. High winds in Amsterdam.

What jerry said..

It is not just Cardiff, where I am sitting elsewhere in the U.K. one look at the departures board at 8PM shows several departing flights still to go and with one hour plus delays...all caused by the high winds across the U.K. and sections of the continent last night and earlier today.

KLM CANX, again. Shocking. 😳

Once again, today's 09.30am arrival is cancelled ? Over the channel, Bristols is due to land at 08.43am? So no Michael Fish observations about weather. Where is Cardiffs plane? Or are there not enough pax......

Bristol had 2 cancelled KLM flights yesterday. In total KLM cancelled over 150 yesterday. Maybe instead of the arrogant postings on here you should contact KLM if it means that much to you.

Yes, truly SHOCKING that a flight should be cancelled, have you contacted your local MP regarding this outrage yet?

W-T-T. I can tell you it's much better being on the ground wishing you were in the air than being in the air wishing you were on the ground. In those wind conditions the control column and throttles are moved like they are on drugs just to keep the aircraft on the ILS and the landing ....well

I disagree Cardif two, perhaps you should go on a F.O.D. Mission, before His Excellency arrives....

Apart from operating the morning BHD flight nope. It looks like they'll be parked during any gaps which is really only during parts in late November and late January when the Faro flight gets dropped in certain weeks. Unless there are charters I don't know about.
There will be extra flights for the Six nations as well for the Scotland Ireland and French games.

Yeah im sure they are bound to pick up some Rugby charters for the Six Nations.

I suppose next summer may show some extra flights as its previously been mentioned that charter flights may be done too !! I know Thomson/TUI are mooted to be reoffering VRN next year on BE aircraft.

Thomson will be selling Lakes packages for June 2018 using Flybe's flights to Verona. Hopefully if Flybe look at other destinations in the future then Thomson will use them as that's the only way i can see anything new or returned routes from TOM with the exception of say Egypt.
Thomas Cook are offering Thailand packages on Qatar's flights from May onwards as well.

Thats some more good news for CWL for Summer 2018 then, be even better if Thomas Cook base the A321 instead of the leased A320

Also looks like DLM is going twice weekly too for Summer 2018

T3 Routes

I see that BE are now marketing VLY, NCL and ABZ from Cardiff. Fares available through BE website following on from the franchise agreement. All flights still operated by T3. No connections from VLY via CWL yet but wonder if they will start at some point?

There are some 1 stop options on sale from VLY via CWL on Skyscanner but they do have some long waits and I'd imagine the pax would have to recheck their luggage.

Just noticed that VLY flights are only bookable until 23MAR18. Have T3 lost the contract to operate this service?

All other T3 operated routes (apart from ABZ-LSI) are currently available to book until JUN18.
