My account above was on Jet2. And being the end of half term week we had paid a fortune. And this was Saturday/Sunday night. Sunday/Monday just seems to have been a repeat.

I think the Handling Agent gets a rough deal sometimes. If ATC can't cope with number of flights they can restrict the flow... If the plane goes tech or there are crewing issues the airline can cancel or delay as appropriate... The Handling Agent just has to deal with the flights as and when they turn up, regardless of the staffing levels at that time. The Airline and the Airport are quick to shift the blame onto the Handling Agent in this case, but both need to look at their own houses as well. Most passengers don't differentiate anyway between the Airlines and Handling Agent, it will be the Airline that they 'won't fly with again' and Stansted that they "won't fly from again' after these issues.

Its the poor baggage enquiries dest staff I feel sorry for, I have seen police called to protect staff at the desk in the baggage reclaim hall, there was one instance I recall when an angry passenger spat and picked up a computer monitor from the counter a flung it off the desk.

the poor staff on that dest have no information and no control over the delays, they are only there to file reports for missing and damaged baggage, but are sitting ducks.

Sort of a shift across from SEN, as I believe they have dropped the route for next winter.

First flight is approximately 85% full with first class sold out apparently, assuming with press and airline officials.

Yeah - that's what we were advised... but it seems unclear as to what caused the need for them to be required?

MAG/STN reporting a very pleasing +9.2% increase in pax for May...

Over 2.5m pax during May...

Rolling 12 months now for 26.5m which makes a +7.5% increase...

a hole was found abeam L1 holding point.

The previous contents of the hole had been liberally spread across the runway.

temporary repair made, runway swept and ops restricted to RWY22 until a full repair could be done later that night

Tomorrow ( 22 June ), primera has arrivals from YYZ, BOS,and EWR.
the worrying thing is the inbound from BOS is the not so good old National 757, and it’s down to operate tomorrow’s departure to EWR.

Is there a problem with one of the new 321s ? And is this a long term switch.
also anyone in the know as to the inbound and outbound loads ?

Iím aware of the delivery situation, Iím trying to find out what has or is happening to one of the two 321s PAA, PAC, which have both been operating from Stansted, why is the National 757 back at Stansted? Has one of the321s gone to CDG ?

FR24 is your friend, and says that PAA operated YYZ-STN last night and PAC was on BOS-CDG.
