Anyone know if BA's winter schedule is now fully confirmed? The GDS is showing some flights being operated by A320 and A321s instead of just the usual A319s.

I do know the reduced schedule has helped BA increase its average load factor to over 80%., before hand the avarage was below 70%.

LBA has revealed plans for a multi-million-pound, three-storey extension to its terminal building.
It will house a transformed international arrivals process, including immigration, baggage reclaim, customs on ground floor & a larger departure lounge with more shops on the first and second floors.,
Once the new building is completed works will then commence on re-modelling the existing terminal building to provide a new security central search area, enhanced check-in facilities, and a simplification of the customer journey.
The final phase of works will include the construction of a new pier, replacing the current passenger walkway with a two-storey structure, housing arrivals and ground level, and additional new boarding gates on the first floor. The work is expected all to be completed by summer 2020.

Looks a little like the "New" Manchester i.e. no architectural master piece, a communal bus shelter not unlike Liverpool. Sorry, but I have been involved with airport projects globally, and have to say the ability of airport operators in the UK to pick the most boring designs is becoming a bit of a joke. I know that one of the worlds big manufacture's is Airbus, but do you have to, in the UK take this literally in building Bus Stations with a shopping mall attached. I realise that much of UK regionals do not have the budget of HK / Singapore but can we get away from the Ral 7016 cladding colour (known as recession Grey in our company) and common to all UK public buildings since 2008. Put some more glass in to show the punters, many who are not regular flyers the beauty of aviation. You can be adventuress without breaking budgets. Years ago I was involved in a minor way in a Public swimming pool project in Colne in Lancashire which won the Sunday Times project of the year for the Hodder Sanderson practice, and they beat some big names in doing that so it can be done on a budget, you just need some vision. I believe Steve Hodder still has a thriving practice, in Manchester so you can even use a local practice !

I work in that sodding tent - airside baggage - and I wouldn't mind betting third world airports are not as bad. It frequently stinks, on account of having been built over several open drains. There are only two heaters, at one end of the tent, usually with only one working at once. It's as draughty as buggery with at least one of the roller shutters faulty at any one time. And there is no hot and cold running water, which is apparently because the tent is a temporary building. This "temporary" building has been there for fourteen years and has been extended once. Talk about stretching the definition of 'temporary'. I don't suppose for a minute matters will improve. Their directorships have bigger fish to fry just now, like regaining the patronage of TUI and TCX, both of whom have abandoned LBA recently.

I'm pretty sure the incumbents will be able to snap these up, Why deal with 2 extra airlines, increased paperwork and space resources, when you get the others to pick up the slack?

Because any airport will want as many airlines as possible operating from it too provide lot's of choice and competition for it's customers .

If only they could flatten the whole place and start again, this must be the third add on to the terminal from a different design. The original 60s terminal must be the centre core of the place. Is there any flat level ground, up near the golf course?

There is but it's occupied by the hangars. We could always dig out what's left of Plane Tree Hill !

Is it possible on reasonable assumptions about plane sizes, seasonality of demand for holidays etc, to get 7m pa through LBA without doing something to the number of stands and the taxiways? Is investment planned airside?

Very unlikely. the place has only recently hit 4m and is close to bursting, growth definitely needed on all sides (terminal, a/c size and stands/parking) if you want to get the other 3m. (and also to fix the 'tent')
