They could probably get a tractor with forks from the strawberry farm!

TCX S18?

Looks like Leeds also lost the planned based A320 for next summer. Now showing inbound only aircraft and like Luton, just Turkey and Palma on sale. Bit strange as only sale for a few weeks.

TCX gave what amounts to a profits warning on Dec 1st. Clearly they are not only closing more of their shops, they are cutting back the holidays on offer to meet likely demand. The combination of Jet2 and a flatlining economy....

Or maybe they just can't get the leased aircraft for those bases at a price that isn't extorniate. Both like CWL were going to be A320 bases and TCX damp leases them usually through Avion Express or Smartwings and neither may have the aircraft available or may want to charge too much to make the bases profitable.

Thomas Cook have acquired 4x Monarch A321 and take 6 Condor A321 in the new year which looks like they will be operating all their flights on their own A/C without the need of leasing anything for LBA and LTN maybe that was a factor in the decison.

They have CWL down for for an A320. Though a Thomas Cook A321 or an A320 would be great it'll probably be an Avion Express again so there should be 1 leased aircraft i believe.

Thomas Cook have acquired 2 A320 from Belgium and Germany so all flights could well be in house next summer.

They still have NCL down as 2X A321 1x A320 aswell but i doubt those seat maps are fully up to date right now when they will literally have enough A321 to cover all their short/med haul routes next summer on their own.

LAX-LHR - I believe the A320's are based in PMI from next summer.

Flybe look to replacing one of two based Eastern Jetstream 41s with a Saab 2000 next summer.

It's looks to be operating the morning and evening LBA-SOU-LBA rotation along with the mid-moring northbound and afternoon southbound LBA-ABZ-LBA rotation.

I really hope it improves the reliability of the service, as the has been a lot of cancellations recently.

So a local paper have at last learned that BA are reducing the LHR service. I very much doubt anyone actually contacted that newspaper. The journalism matches the airport - both are third rate. The problem with local enthusiasts is their complete inability to A, smell airport operator fake/fair weather news and B, to realise why the airport is a catastrophic failure.

As for BA they join a long, long list of airlines and former airport operators who eventually learn that if your airport is in the wrong location you will not be able to fill the planes! (especially if your near neighbours have put their airports in the correct location). For Yorkshire and the whole North East of England to benefit the airport that serves the most populous part of Yorkshire must be slightly geographically moved. You Yeadon spotters need to stop moaning about BA, Loganair, Vueling, EasyJet etc etc you are swimming against a tide of overwhelming evidence. 1 well located and connected fully functioning airport for Yorkshire [and 9 million people in the North East] will turn the reported losses into profits.

Leeds Approach, you must mean Newcastle as the North East Airport surely? There is a role for Durham Tees Valley too. Leeds/Doncaster etc are not what I would call North East

Leeds Approach it's took you so long to catch up, where have you been for past 5 weeks?.

Ah well at least now you can go back to sleep and dream about Church Fenton International again.
