Every ones opinion counts weather it be Beafers N707ZS Robert Ryan`s Convair 440s or any one else who posts on this thread you don`t have to like it
it would would be a pretty boring thread if we all had the same opinion there is no needed for all the trolling on here
we all want the Airport to improve any way it can be achieved

Well here is some. Apparently, we will see an A340 over the big weekend. Plus corporates!

Railway Station
Was there plans about a year ago to remove the foot bridge and the east bound platform

Bridge was declared dangerous just before the air show and it was mentioned somewhere that one platform was to go.

At the airport for an early out. A couple of largely irrelevant observations....

Aircraft are parking side on and its not windy. Anyone know why?

My beloved toothpaste was confiscated at security. The same brand and size that I have travelled with around the world for years. Different rules in Teesside this morning. A coincidence that immediately after security, there is a new stand selling toiletries?

First time through in a couple of months - looks good. Looking forward to an increase in traffic soon!

Side on parking has been in operation for a few months now, no idea why.

Does side parking mean push-back isn't needed?

The Embraer tow-bar has been u/s for months, I guess KLM don't deem it worth fixing

Interesting. Certainly no push backs needed this morning but the Eastern was also side parked so this canít be entirely down to the Embraer bar.

Here is a question. With an A340 load of people due to come in/out in a couple of weeks, will those passengers go through the terminal like everyone else and have to pay the facility fee or are special charters like that exempt?

Stobart Jet Centre will probably handle the flight with vehicles escorted to and from the aircraft. Facility fee is probably nothing compared to what they will pay to bring in a VIP A340. The predicted 9H-BIG has a much reduced capacity.

More terrible industrial news for Teesside today with British Steel.

lets hope the mayor has some money left in the coffers after spending x millions on the airport to help the area?

Sorry..is that the mayors vote or Brexit?

Fact is...the new incumbents had a large pot of money gifted! by the government.

i have always said...the infrastructure,industry,transport links..rail and road..were of more value than 150 happy people every week flying off to Bulgaria.

A golden nest egg of government money would have been better spent on the whole region rather than a political dream?

The government money is being spent on the whole region - that was one of the complaints by the local councils, there wasn't a seperate vote on the airport, it was included in the whole budget (£700m?) for the TVCA, so it was all or nothing

There's a bigger picture, a functional airport will have a positive ripple effect throughout the rest of the TVCA
