Still sulking

On the bus from LBA to the.centre. Which is rammed and stopping everywhere.

I kind of thought the airport would be busy enough to get an express service

If there was enough demand from business customers, then surely it would have stayed daily rather than reduced to just three times per week.

My informal survey always saw a decent load count mid-week.

I suspect it's more about reducing to one based jet meaning they are picking the 'premium' loads and maintaining the network.

Probably picking the premium spending passengers for DSA to keep the shops and bar afloat. DSA wont make much from a businessman arriving 30 mins before his flight, and lets not forget DSA have a hand in BE being there.

My past few flights in there it's actually been fairly busy. Disappointingly so from my point of view.

And DSA is not going to get rich on the shops profit share. But you are right, my purchase is normally limited to a bottle of water..., and maybe a 2 bacon sarnie from Subway if there is no queue.

Is this the drivel you roll out when you are bored on a Sunday and look for a rise from someone?

Like people state on other threads go away or contribute constructively.

How did those great set of VIP charters from Church Fenton go this summer?

Your absolutely correct he is a TROLL.

Personally I never use that term as the majority of the time it can often be used in the incorrect manner but in the case of LEEDS APPROACH he is actually what you have written a complete and utter TROLL.

BBC Local News reporting a new route to be announced by the end of the month.

This is in addition to the previously announced TUI routes to Kefalonia, Antalya and Hurghada.

Any idea who is launching the route (and where to)? I assume it will be one of the incumbents, but hope it's someone new.

As a betting man I would say Reus or Rome with Flybe to replace Berlin.

Peel are being liberal again with "new route" announcements as a few have these have been served in the past and in the case of Antalya by TUI previously.

Potentially they could be announcing the Naples route but it would be good to see an additional route.

Personally I would love Wizz to pick up Prague, I understand it was a good route back in the day with Thomsonfly and Easyjet. The planes were always very busy when I used the service. Pain having to trek to MAN, EMA and LBA.

By virtue of it being one route ( unless that's wrong) unless Ryanair come in with one route ( most unlikely despite near constant training for weeks ) it's a bet between Flybe and Wizzair.
Ideally Flybe as they have aircraft sat idle.
An ideal route - somewhere not served ( Rome was a good suggestion ) for example but one with high frequency if poss x7 weekly .
That might restore the couple of lost routes .
Or Loganair to ABZ . Not much of a route but again with good frequency and their statement intending to target all North English airports .?.
Just wait and see.

"the whole North East of England is held in an civil aviation economic time warp!"

I presume you think Yorkshire is in the NE? NCL is doing OK and that's in the REAL NE - not the N Midlands.................. but selfish thinking is unfortunately a real issue with Yorks airports

Ahhh, so its not just about Yorkshire now but the whole of the Noeth East? Have you compared population density of the Greater Manchester/Merseyside area with Yorkshire and the North East? So were not just closing LBA now, were closing 5 airports to benefit Leeds..

You know how unlikely this scenario is. It has been pointed out hundreds of tones now. So yes, you are a troll. Until you change the record.

I was in the airport chatting to a chap from Bradford. It had taken him less time to get to Doncaster Sheffield than Leeds Bradford.

He was impressed and had decided to ditch LBA when he could.

It's a shame that they can't turn around the Leeds local trains at a Doncaster Sheffield station - a spur off the quiet Lincoln line... Would make it very accessible.

From Google..... In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion,often for the troll's amusement.
