Anyone know what the exact numbers of based aircraft will be from Sunday 1st. I guess it'll be what we have now with the addition of some TUIs.

On the TUI thread someone has put together the entire program which showed 1 Max and 3x 738 at NCL plus W flights. The above comments re Freebird made me think that this may have been refined or is it even more flights? Seems too good to be true after the recent few years.

From the 1st May we’ll have 4 based a/c. Not sure on how many MAX/NG’s. Looking further ahead looking up to 12 flights per day. Including the W’s and the Dreamliners which will be up to 6 times per week in peak summer.

In the peak summer period, I calculate that Jet 2 need 9 based aircraft to operate their NCL programme.

9 has been confirmed in their schedule for peak. (August) with the additional
aircraft coming from EDI or GLA when they are “off peak”

Airport Rating

In todays Daily Telegraph......Newcastle is rated joint 3rd best UK airport with Heathrow. They rated the UK's 16 busiest airports in 16 categories...joint bottom airports were Bristol and Leeds/Bradford. Top was London City.
NB Airport Management, before bringing out the Champagne....... Ncl is one of the few airports failing to offer water refill stations......but well done everyone.

LHR

BA have certainly got the knife out when it comes to NCL-LHR this Summer. From the initial schedule of up to 7 per day, we are down to a maximum of five and very often just three (or even on one date I looked at, two) per day. Looks like they have given up on point to point traffic this summer end giving all the capacity over to connecting flows. Hope this doesn’t permanently damage the route.

They are struggling with operational issues namely people resourcing, airport capacity constraints and unstable IT systems. So they are going to be curbing capacity by cancelling around 60 flights a day. Inverness has also seen a large chop of flights not just us.

no need to worry about this they will be back. Staffing major issue and ncl has good rail links to London.

they will be back to 7 by next summer

That'll be the RYR Dublin that landed 2 minutes early, the BA that landed 8 minutes late and the RYR Alicante which was 6 minutes late? Looks like a 15 min break in ATC cover. Not the end of the world, really.

Ok no problem then😀. Suppose holding fuel doesn’t matter much these days or the professional reputation of a major UK airport..

Nice try but you need to give yer head a shake - it was a NOTAM'd 15 minute break, not a major staffing problem.

More holding tonight..including..Shock horror Emirates.

So SWBKCB…just what is going on? Notams issued but a bit of paper doesn’t hide , what really, for a supposedly major NE airport is going on?

Bad planning by management or bad planning by management…?
