The current LHR offering has a daily CAN-LHR on the B789 with an additional :
CZ 651 18:15 CAN SYX LHR T4 Thu Sun
CZ 653 18:25 CGO LHR T4 Tue Sat
CZ 673 18:30 WUH LHR T4 Mon Wed Fri

So given a daily PKX-LHR A380 is being offered for summer 2020, is the remainder of the non CAN flights as per above moving over to LGW as well?

South Terminal works

Passed through the south terminal recently and noticed that large sections of ceiling are exposed above check in zones J and K (Norwegian), with ceiling tiling removed. Does anyone know what is happening here in terms of works and whether this has now been completed? (As I thought the majority of current transformation works were being directed towards the North terminal). In it’s current state, it makes the area look very dark and unwelcoming to passengers passing through, so hopefully it’ll be fixed soon.

quite a big aircraft to fill as a new route to Bulgaria in summer. Isn't SOF more a winter/ski base?

A nice addition and great to see W6 going from strength to strength at LGW. Will also be in direct competition with U2 on the route. U2 service this route twice daily, so presumably W6 shouldn't have too much of a problem filling the A321. I wonder if we'll see W6 open up further new routes or even a second base at LGW, given capacity restrictions at LTN?

Only if they could ever get prized early morning and late evening slots.

Why would W6 be interested only in early morning / late evening slots ? Many of the pax flying between London and Eastern Europe are looking for a cheap fare and are relatively time insensitive. If there is a large number of people south of the Thames wanting to go to cities also flown by Ryanair from Stansted, then why would Wizz not consider a Gatwick route ?

We seem to be forgetting that LGW is heavily slot constrained and is only going to get new business from Wizz on the basis they can secure optimally timed slots on a significaant scale - by all means this is increasingly plausiable with other airlines increasingly restructuring and, sadly, going out of business in todays market conditions, but until then any significant development from Wizz is unlikely. They will be for sure though looking to diversify beyond LTN.

If they have a 'base' they need slots at prime times of the day. If they don't have a base they can continue to use the airport at the times they can squeeze in.

Turkish appear to be transferring Ankara to Stn as well. What is happening with TK at Lgw, they seem to be falling out of love with it.

Does anyone know when the suspension is coming into effect? Reason for asking is I am supposed to be flying to HKG on Tuesday, and still have no idea what's happening...

Any idea what's happening in Gatwick? A few GAs and diversions - looks as though the runway is unavailable?

You may have already seen but it's going to LHR and will be operated by a 777-300ER (more premium config).
