Makes sense as there's no ATL flight on the 22nd.

Rather disappointed last night when using the new multi-storey car park by T1 arrivals. Every single downspout was leaking; either around side of the pipe (so it was not sealed properly on the top) or from the joints. Very poor workmanship. I was worrried the structure was built to a same standard such that my car might fall through the floor....

Isnít that just a temporary solution that is actually used as a more permanent solution at countless UK railway stations, particularly in the south east?

Get in touch with MAN via social media...may not make a difference, but unless people report problems, they definitely wonít be fixed.
Not that I expect this to be fixed quickly or at all, but I always believe in reporting such issues...

October stats have now been made available by the airport. Allowing for the loss of Thomas Cook I believe that a reduction of less than 2% over the same month last year is a pretty good return.

Interesting. The largest percentage drops were actually in domestic movements and passengers - related to Flybe per chance?

Does that 6% swing in charter traffic mean those who were booked on Thomas Cook but were repatriated on the CAA aircraft were counted as charter passengers? In which case the real drop would be far higher, as at the moment the passengers are just re-categorised?

Does the fact that any Thomas Cook passengers would have been flying back by one type of flight or another not invalidate your reasoning - whether it be charter or scheduled service? With the failure having been in September I would think that the vast majority of passengers who had already commenced their travel would, by the end of October, be home - assuming that those travelling for a month or more will have had to maketheir arrangements to return. At the end of the day it is, to me at least, the over all number of passengers that count.

November will be the first month when we will see whether those passengers who had been booked with Thomas Cook have managed to rebook their arrangements.

With regards to the domestic figures then yes, I believe that Flybe decision to cut flights, albeit towards the end of October, will have had a serious effect on the performance. Maybe we should revisit those numbers when the CAA get around to producing the October statistics (they have still not published September's data).

I don't believe it invalidates anything.

The point was only a 2% reduction which was classified as good. My contention was that actually the full fall can't be ascertained until next month as there has only been a reshuffling between two categories. As you say, next month will only be the real tell.

I'm really not attacking anything or anyone - I'm saying that it's too soon to say the impact of Thomas Cook.

I did hear a rumour of this a few months ago.
