Security staff levels will likely increase at SEN because it's better for the airport financially if pax spend time (and money) in the shops than waiting to go through an arch. Also not great for airport if flights are regularly delayed to find baggage of pax who is waiting in security queue - poor quality flight operational statistics makes it harder to attract new airlines

Yes, also reported by the BBC:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-48424232

Airport blames ATC and the weather. Last summer's weather was the best in many years and all other airports were subject to similar ATC capacity delays. Absolutely nothing to do with repeatedly closing the runway due to it's state of disrepair and nothing to to do with long delays due to the airports continued refusal to manage their wheelchair service to passengers then ?

It's rather a selective list. It's supposed to be an analysis of '24 leading airports' yet Bristol (9th busiest) and London City (13th busiest) are not included whereas Durham Tees Valley (33rd busiest) is included, with busier airports than MME (such as Prestwick, Norwich, Inverness and Newquay) also missing.

If I remember rightly, there were many thunderstorms floating round Europe last year, which caused a lot of delays. As for the runway being repeatedly closed... not sure how you mustered that one up and Omniserve manage the PRMs, not MAG.

Was the A380 for fans or for the players?

Chelsea team flew from LGW on a New Zealand registered 767.

interesting fact: the Maleth Aero A340 to Baku today had more customers onboard than the HiFly A380 on the same route !

Thunderstorms are a standard part of summer effecting departures from all airports, not just STN. I mustered the little gem about the runway closure due to holes from the fact that I had to divert twice last summer and again just a few days ago. The runway is falling apart. Omniserve (fail to) manage the PRM service as a monopoly at the behest of MAG. MAG are responsible for the management of their airport and their service providers.

Baku certainly producing interesting heavies with the Wamos/PLM B744 possibly providing the largest theoretical single uplift with a published seat config of 529.

Regarding the HFY A380 capacity it has probably not been reconfigured since ops with SIA & therefore not high density.

Coincidently both the HFM/PLM a/c were SIA originally.

Normal ops see nine Jet2 departures up to 9am today with all 3 Titan A321`s in use from STN at the w/end.
