Except it is now true having used both airports in the last month between 6 and 7am. L***n has raised its game although still not great. Expect to see those bad boys overtake Stansted when the next Which passenger survey comes out leaving Stansted in bottom place. Don't get me wrong, STN has great potential but it now seems to be using the Ryanair rule book. Stansted seems to me to be the airport of last resort although that title might well end up at Southend in the next year or two as that place is going down hill fast.

Southend will be improved and sorted out in time.

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

From The Independent today's date: average delays UK airports.

This is the Press Association from CAA data.

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.
