No news on Emirates or Widroe currently. I’ve heard we may be getting a brand new handling agent soon though.
Emirates confirmed for Swissport , no news on Widrøe .

Bit of information on Primera’s operation from tomorrow.
The new A21N will be operating the AGP and ALC until next Saturday 05/05/18.
We will then see the A21N operating to EWR until the 13/05/18. The B752 will continue unitl 04/08/18.
The B752 will operate the BOS from 18/05/18 until the 30/05/18 when the A21N takes over.
The YYZ and the IAD will be operated by the A21N from start dates.
Been told this by a member of Swissport today. He said it is very likely to change but this is the schedule they have been told.
Thanks

Does anyone know if primera EWR had another tech problem today ? I see it left 2 hrs late again, I heard it pushed back about 40 mins late and then returned to the gate, however it was from a bloke who was talking to another bloke, but checking on FR24 it did leave just over 2 hrs late.

Update.
I got to work this morning and checked how PF41 was doing only to discover it has diverted to YUL Montreal, unsure of the reason but looks like another hefty delay.

I believe that crew arriving from a European destination are allowed to use VP2. I am under the understanding that crew from any other destination use must pass through UKBF and then Customs. If a crew member doesn’t have a STN airside pass then they should be passing through VP9. I believe freighter crew have different policies and can go through VP1. Though this may have changed.

Does anyone know the passenger figures for yesterday’s EWR departure I guess it must have been pretty busy given the weight issue.

Also I see CDG-EWR starts 18th May with a B763.

Primera flight PF42 EWR-STN is showing cancelled today,
PF41 arrived Newark from Stansted pretty much on time so not sure what the problem is this time.

Seems to be one too many problems for Primera at present. I do hope they get their act together soon, don't want to lose them before they've properly begun
Wonder if they've cancelled due to a very poor load?

On a separate note, does anyone know when Jet2 Summer 2019 will be released. Everything else is on sale, including the new routes. Hope nothings gone wrong there too

Cancelled due to tech issues once again. Not sure it was a full load but certainly wasn’t anywhere near empty. Lots of posts and a video on social media, pax effectively being told to sort themselves out.

I sssume with the aircraft stuck at EWR this evenings STN-EWR is also at risk. This is not doing Primera or STN any favours at all, it’s only a matter of time before this reaches the rags.

One might hope Primera would sub sub to cover this evening's outbound- I would guess in early May Titan Hi-Fly etc might have availability.

321 to EWR

It looks like they've seen sense and given up with the 757, the 321 is down to do todays EWR

I did wonder if the A321 would be put onto today’s flight from Stansted before this latest cancellation, I noticed yesterday that the B738 was showing as arriving at Stansted from Billund, so maybe it was a planned move to get the National back to the States then cancel it.

PF9875 B738 is currently inbound to Stansted from Billund, I presume it’s set to swap shorthaul operations with A321 to free it up for tonight’s Newark departure.

So have they got ETOPS approval already or is this a non-ETOPS routing?

Aircraft has received ETOPS approval nearly 2 weeks ago. Also has all permits to fly to the US. Only purpose behind using it for SH was for training sectors (more utilisation = more sectors for the crew)

Amongst the social media complaints is one claiming 15 or so STN-bound pax were denied boarding in Malaga after being late to the gate because of a long queue at check-in. Online check-in is not offered on STN routes.

On the the plus side, the flight was apparently very full. On the downside, this sounds like something totally within the airline’s control and more bad publicity that could easily be avoided.

What is the situation with compensation in this scenario, assuming the pax did genuinely arrive at check-in with good time which I have no reason to doubt?

Depends, did check in close on time? If so then passengers responsible to get themselves to the gate on time, if check in closed late due to queues then best practice is to wait, but then how long, can't hold 180 pax for one or twowho may have got lost, 15 sounds like quite a few though, all a bit of a minefield really, doubt they will get any compensation though.

Presumably they had no checked bags?
