Thanks for that STN406. I believe you have cracked it! I found a photo on Jet Photos of G-EZEZ outside a paint shop, Airbourne Colours, at East Midlands on Oct 20th. This is in Allegiant colours with a white stick-on strip showing the G-EZEZ reg.
I have just seen info that suggests this will be going to Allegiant as N314NV
Cheers

Uttlesford (UDC) officers recommended conditional approval of MAG`s application for expansion at STN to 43m pax on 22.10.

In the interest of posting balance here the application will be determined later this month by the full UDC Planning Committee.

Local objectors are now putting their faith in individual Councillors at the planning meeting for any possible overturn of the recommendation.

Further to the Allegiant A319 saga: I watched G-EZIP going out for a "test drive" from Stansted yesterday. The track showed a full tour around East Anglia, with altitudes varying from 13,000ft to 39,000ft. As this one was returning to Stansted, Alleginat N315NV (ex G-EJAR) departed Stansted for delivery to the US. It seems it went first to Bangor, Maine, presumably to get more go juice, then off to Puerto Rico. Stansted to Bangor ME; that is a long way for an A319 surely?

Most would tend to do a stopover in KEF, but with an empty ship and favourable weather, a possibility. Bangor would also be used to clear customs.

From Stansted Airport Twitter page. As of yesterday 31/10/2018.

As part of the terminal transformation programme, the overnight access to the terminal has changed and passengers departing on early morning flights are reminded not to arrive sooner than their scheduled check-in time, bit.ly/2ElXi5f. Thank you.

Yes they are. Pay for a hotel room like any civilised person would, itís not a hostel.

The description sounds much more extreme right than left wing.
But when people price that bargain flight they should price in the hotel as well.

Yes this team is still working at Stansted on contract. When you work at the airport you realise what a massive boost this team gives to the operation.
Furthermore they only wake passengers up that are lying down over seats or floor space and blocking emergency exits and equipment.
The last I heard was they would be staying at Stansted until at least the end of summer 2019.
Hotel rooms are available and booking in advance will get you a good deal. Also a new ĎPremier Inní is being built in nearby Bishops Stortford. This will have around 100 rooms and is right next the train and bus station, for easy connections to Stansted and London.

Iíd be interested to know what they would do in cases like May Bank Holiday this year, where thousands including myself arrived delayed after midnight/1am and there was no way out of the airport and even people with hotel reservations had no way of reaching them.

Just for your information, all the hotels now have a 24/7 shuttle running to them every night. This has been in place since 26th July.
The car park shuttles run 24/7 to all car parks. The Blue car park also has a shuttle to it now.
For the passengers that choose to overnight at Stansted and wait till the morning for connections into London. National Express run a 24/7 operation to multiple destinations in London and some to other destinations.
Of course some people do rely on local buses which donít run as good a service as they do during the day, which is an annoyance to some, and the airport is speaking to local bus companies to improve the services.
Failing this there is the based taxi company which can be expensive but if you go to the ĎInfomation Deskí there are a list of local companies which can offer a more competitive price.
For many people they do have options to get to London and home but some not all are lazy and refuse to use the alternative services that they wouldnít use during the day.

Thatís a great suggestion that, Iíve no idea why neither I nor hundreds like me thought of it.

Or maybe we did, and the first available was estimated for 4:30am. Same for Uber, and local firms had no one available.

Its good to know they run 24/7 now.

As for the rest of it, it didnít apply on that occasion. There were just too many people for the coaches, buses and taxis available. Iím not talking taking the odd late flight, Iím talking 40+ arrrivals after 1am which is exceptional.

In my personal circumstances I did not consider that I would be missing the last trains/coaches because I was arriving so far before them it wasnít an issue. Having to fork out for a taxi would have been an annoyance but one I could afford and cope with. I donít appreciate the insulting comments about options that arenít available as though Iím completely stupid.

Of benefit to STN & other London airports is the news that BAW drop Tallinn from April`19.

To be honest Stansted looked like a homeless shelter before the prodders arrived. Iím all for it. The place had more rough sleepers than Centre Point has at Christmas.

I am not talking about spending a whole night in a sleeping bag - I am a 57 year old man and would rather spend two hours max in the early AM snoozing rather than wasting £80 on a hotel. I do not look like a homeless person and always make damn good use of the airport catering retail facilities. So - if I ever get prodded by a Stansted Airport left-wing KGB chap I would - seriously - cross the airport off my list and toddle off to Luton or Gatwick. And - if it costs more - so be it.
Whats the obsession with calling the workers left wing? What has politics got to do with it

The poster perhaps requires to read properly the very informative info yesterday from someone on site regarding who gets disturbed & the criteria engaged.

TBH this poster either has an obsession & or an agenda...possibly both.
