That's a shame. I'm taking a trip down to LCY from Manchester on the 26th April and was hoping to see both YY and YZ.

Thanks for the info.

Another DLR strike looming, 4 days Fri-Mon 20-23 April, which again will impact LCY access. It's also London Marathon weekend, the course on Sunday effectively runs all round the DLR network and cuts off the direct road access to LCY from the City of London.

Indeed they are. But each one has a member of staff on board to close doors / dispatch train, check tickets and drive the train manually on occassions. This is required by the regulator.

Yes. But it's like Autoland, still needs someone to set it all up and do the rest of the knobs on the flight deck ...

I always think that sitting at the front of a DLR train as it turns and descends into the tunnel on its way into Bank is a bit like a slow rollercoaster ride.

Someone has to take over in the event of a "blue screen of death".

ANR-LCY was their first route. VLM used to be the No 1 operator at LCY by movements, to a whole range of places, which eventually died out, and then just Antwerp came back.

According to the LCY twitter feed, LOT Polish Airlines will launch twice daily LCY-WAW flights from 7th January 2019. A great addition.

I thought the E195 wasn't able to operate from LCY?

It will be operated by E190 aircraft. LOT has ordered some from Nordic Aviation Capital.

I think they may find another carrier has already applied for slots at BUD to fly to LCY and may beat them to it.
