I flew back from Frankfurt T2 to STN with RYR in July and all boarding was via an airbridge!.......A pretty civilized experience compared to the normal scrum!

No longer true at Malaga.

They have built extensions recently to gates on Pier B and C directly prior to the airbridge which are steps/lifts down to the ground so they can board via the forward and rear steps. Pier D (Schengen only) also has the option built in as standard.

I can only presume it's because of RYR is the largest carrier at AGP.

I haven't seen any other carrier besides RYR use this however; EZY, LS, etc, still use the airbridge on the same gates.

Can confirm this at certain gates yes, though from what I've seen it's only Ryanair who use them along with Air Nostrum for obvious reasons. EasyJet and the rest seem to continue to use the airbridges.

Are there any plans to add an extra aircraft or two to the GLA base following the collapse of Thomas Cook?

Reportedly due at MAN from Kazakhstan on Nov 5th - no idea whether itís originating there, or thatís just a transit stop en route from somewhere further east.

GLA is due to get 1 additional aircraft next year anyway and there is a possibility of an additional one taking GLA up to 9.

Pickle Forks

Any issues with the Jet2.com NGs?
Qantas grounded two NGs now due to the wing pickle fork crack issues.

G-DRTM is ex Air Europa aircraft EC-KCG built in 2007 currently stored in Woensdrecht. (Winglets)
G-DRTR is ex Air China aircraft B-5175 built in 2006 currently stored in Chengdu. (No Winglets)

From your quote it seems they were on a "Jet2 the airline " flight; perhaps that?

I think its a bit harsh.............but assume Jet 2 counter claimed v the airport authorities?

Whilst they are on a jet 2 holiday ,we must pay for ground handling at these places. The failure to protect our passengers looks bad on JET2 But the issue was clearly the airports.

Is that anyone's view?

It's clearly an airport issue - it's irrelevant which a/c the pax got off (which was how I read ATNotts original point).

TFS bus crash lawsuit

Originally Posted by SWBKCB View Post

Mark Gibson, partner at law firm Digby Brown, confirmed the legal action for all 33 tourists was successfully ended this week.

He said: “This was a very complex case due to the number of people affected as well as the need to liaise with foreign authorities.

“However, I can confirm all 33 cases are now concluded.
“Our clients should have been enjoying their holiday and instead they were left with injuries.

A Jet2 spokesman said: “Although we were not responsible for the accident, which took place between two vehicles driven by airport staff, we do of course acknowledge the distress that it must have caused. We now consider this matter closed.”

I guess the lawyers would have class auctioned the TFS airport authority, the airlines' handling agent (and who drove the buses) and likely Jet2 also as the pax were in their care...
May have been a joint liability settlement.

anyway case closed now

I actually interpreted it as the issue being on the transfer between resort and airport, which is why I considered it totally irrelevant to Jet2 (the airline). That of course was an incorrect assumption.
