With 20 / 20 hindsight (a talent in abundance on these threads) they'd have hit the ground running from STN and BHX in June, but they didn't.
im hoping they have dropped National, yesterdayís flights out and in were operated with the A321 and todayís outbound is also down to be the A321 guess time will tell.

The first flight of the A321 to New York was originally scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday 5th May) but due to the National 757 issues, it has now been operating the route for a few days (operation brought forward). EWR is for now an A321 ONLY route out of STN. I think this is a good call in order to save reputation. Trouble is, it has affected no. of training sectors available.

National are still part of the programme and will be doing the BOS initially and then maybe the odd EWR after that too. Again, their involvement is purely due to Airbus delivery delays and cannot be avoided.

I understand the delivery issue however if I was primera I would be thinking very hard about launching Boston with the National B752 I would be looking very hard for a totally different airline to operate the route until the delivery delays are resolved.
Another thing primera need to sort out quickly is there social media team, I’m not sure if the airline is used to the UK and US way social media is used by the traveling public it seems to me like they have one person dealing with it whilst doing another job they need to realise it just as important that a sales agent position.

Is there any truth in the rumour that swissport are splitting their operation at STN ?Ryanair operation to stand alone.Also ties in with the suggestion that Ryanair have approached both Menzies and Stobart.

This has been circulating around the terminal recently. But no one has any answers if it is or not.

TUI are offering a one off 14 night flight/cruise itinerary to Barbados on the 17th February 2019 using one of their Dreamliners.

I know they have done these one off flights in the past, but I'm pretty certain it didn't operate this year.

An interesting range of loads, thanks for the info.
Any chance you could also include the aircraft as well? im pretty sure 198 couldn't fit onto an LS B738 (only to realise its a leased a/c)

New Flight:
LaudaMotion/Ryanair will be launching Vienna to Stansted starting 28th October running twice a day.

OE314 VIE 06:30-07:40 STN x6
OE314 VIE 07:25-08:35 STN 6
OE 326 VIE 18:00-19:10 STN D

OE315 STN 08:25-11:35 VIE 6
OE315 STN 09:20-12:10 VIE x6
OE327 STN 19:55-23:05 VIE D

Very good news for Stansted and Vienna. I hope that Eurowings donít get coldfeet and stop their Vienna route, be good to see competition on more routes.
But then they never stopped Cologne when Ryanair began operations.

Aircraft collision this morning - the Primera B738 to Malaga clipped a Ryanair waiting at the 04 holding point.

Primera still not having the best of starts. At least it wasn't the A21N I suppose

From my understanding of it, it all changed after Ryanair did not buy Alitalia.
but who knows, but as stated the date has passed old news or none news.

great news about Laudamotion and Vienna-Stansted

The VIE route was of course previously operated under Niki, ceasing a few years ago. It would be great if DUS could be brought back, itís been a big hole in STNís network the last couple of years.

TCX flew STN-NWI for fuel before heading to REU.

BA is now on its way to SEN for fuel to IBZ.

Lots of inbound FR scattered around LGW, LTN, BHX, EMA. Cobalt went to LGW. The problem is there are no stands available.

Airport never officially closed. Just on very reduced amount of departures and arrivals allowed to due to stand availability. Operation likely to be affected for a day or to as the destinations cancelled have little to no availability for the next two days due to it being half term.

Stansted has had bad luck during Bank holiday weekends. I shall avoid weekends and low cost operaters.
