You win some you lose some. I have to go to a funeral in Worthing next week and would almost certainly have used NQY/LGW to do it, however, NQY/LHR is not ideal by the time you have cleared a busy airport and picked up a hire car I could have almost driven there at a fraction of the cost. On the other hand I will almost certainly be using the LHR flight for our trips to YVR with BA.

Not a good look - First day of LHR Ops - last evenings goes tech at 8pm and folk bussed to LHR - 6 hours - nice (not)

I would have preferred they put me on the GWR sleeper

Anyone know how the new JER service went today and an idea how future bookings are looking?

SAS Copenhagen starts tomorrow. Something of a coup for Newquay. Will the pax be largely Danish - originating.?

Just flying from NQY and notice a Virgin A340 parked up.

What is it going here?

The VS A346 is in for storage until the winter season when it will be off for scrapping, not sure where it will go to be parted out, it could be done at NQY. My guess is that’s it’s kept ready to fly and complete internally as a hot spare should it be needed

its been used for some publicity shots while at newquay for the new virgin galactic sat launching system which is proposed to operate ex NQY on an ex VS 744

Only 13 years old and being scrapped already. Not even approaching mid life if it was military.

It was certainly very alive at my last look. Red beacons flashing and at least one engine running judging by the heat haze at the rear of the wing.

Shame it's being scrapped. Such a great plane but not quite meeting the needs of the industry at the time. Far better from a passenger perspective than the B777.

I was under the impression this aircraft was placed in mid term storage pending end of lease to Virgin, in a condition whereby it could "quickly" be returned to service should extra capacity be required and returned to the lessor after this period...

NQY-MAN Twice daily makes huge amounts of sense, for connectivity ongoing I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go x3 daily with early AM, midday, late PM operating on a Nqy based unit.

I’m very much hoping for the best but LHR-NQY doesn’t seem to show up past the end of March whereas the other LHR flybe routes seem to have schedules loaded. ??

dropped or error ?

Yep. Does look like a Nqy based unit is required for an ex newquay departure to Manchester.

still no direct heathrow loaded past March 20 I would struggle with it being dropped as it’s a pso

Leeds looks to be operated by Newquay based Dash 8 as well. Ops 2x weekly - Fri & Sun increases to 4x weekly - Mon, Fri, Sat & Sun peak summer (June to August)

Mon, Fri & Sun
BE754 = NQY 14:55 LBA 16:05 / BE755 = LBA 16:35 NQY 17:45
Sat
​​​​BE754 = NQY 10:55 LBA 12:05 / BE755 = LBA 12:35 NQY 14:35
