Ooops - a tyop.
KLM1057, RYR86YB and TUI245 currently circling over head so it looks like they could be opening soon.

Surely the reason for this departure from the tarmac is obvious?

The new generation of pilots is very good at following a magenta line ... but not a yellow one

KL1057 was the first aircraft to land, just after 00:00 on Saturday morning.

It'll be a tough recovery over the weekend particularly for Easyjet, who must have aircraft and crew all over the place, and a huge number of displaced passengers.

KLM1057 landed just before midnight with RYR86YB close behind and RYR88GE a few miles out.

Several EasyJet's are repositioning as I write from BHX so delays tomorrow might not be as bad as you think

the airfield being owned by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan does not suggest there is a competent management in place to organise things for an event like this.
They could at least invest in some Canadianly polite signage, such as: "Please keep off the grass, eh".

Any ERJ145s in this position should be removed by a bulldozer. Awful things to fly in...

There seems to be a flotilla of EZY aircraft moving in at the moment from EXT / STN / BHX, plus EDI arrived in late. I think I've counted 11 in, and it looks like they need 13 off tomorrow morning. It looks like there might be three frames at BOH (OE-IJG, G-EZBU, G-EZUK).

Still a lot of displaced pax from Friday to deal with today though.

I've said it time and time again BRS should have been at Filton not the farm where it is now.

While we are on the subject of accuracy, the code CFW does not exist
Not in IATA code but it's actually Cardiff Train Station so fairly close!

With you on that, a ridiculous state of affairs developing an airport on a foggy hill thats hard to get to by road, when a longer runway was up for grabs next to the M4/M5 interchange.

But much more convenient for the builders of shops and houses and Business Parks -

Filton also would have had noise issues

Bristol Airport @BristolAirport Following the earlier incident, the aircraft has now been moved and the airport is now open and fully operational. We are working with the airlines to resume the flight schedule as soon as possible but ongoing knock-on delays to flights may be experienced over the weekend.

Shows steady stream of departures with few cancellations

Agreed. I've been told that the reason that Filton wasn't selected was because there was a corner of a hangar that would have infringed the ILS and the owners refused to knock it down - something to do with the Brabazon having been built in it. Just one of any number of scandals that should have been sorted out by a forward-looking government, which was lacking at the time. Now it's too late, so we have to work with what we've got. Similar to the vacillation over expansion at London Airport.

I agree, it also has a rail line running through, but you need to blame the residents of Chipping Sodbury who waged a vigorous campaign years ago, to prevent Filton obtaining planning permission for change of use to a civil airport. They knew the airport was there when they bought their houses etc. etc.

Yeah but it wasn't going to be a major domestic airport - it was a company facility....

It’s about time the CAA began enforcing the “rerouting and care” provisions of Regulation 261. Passengers need a lot more than an offer of a refund when this type of **** happens. It’s a cost of doing business, if you don’t like it just go and invest in bitcoin, or something equally safe.

Shambles, nothing but a shambles.
