They did sell tickets for those flights so if it was pre-planned having to now cancel them and rebook or refund customers is not great PR for a company trying to establish themselves at NCL.

Handlers certainly are struggling. Lots of new staff not up to speed. Try and help when can.

Yes noticed the TUI 73M on the NCL-CFU only managed as far as EMA, as per FR24 then never made it above FL170, assume all part of the flight plan, & not another "hiccup"...

It transpires that there was a complete disaster at NCL this morning insofar as fuel availability is concerned. Very surprised that only one comment re this mess,.
For clarity AT LEAST ELEVEN departures from NCL this morning diverted (EMA x7), (STN x3) , (CGN x1), there may be many more................
Is this due to industrial unrest, & is it ongoing / resolved ?
A significant number of NCL pax affected by this mess, insofar as returning flights then significant delays already eg. LS514 from HER looking like 4 hours due to delays at STN.
Bit of a nightmare I'd say.

How the hell did the airport allow this to happen & who foots the bill for this mess? It must have cost the airlines concerned a fair amount in wasted fuel and landing costs never mind delay compensation costs for retuning customers

Do we know if it was lack of fuel or lack of staff to refuel aircraft? Either way a real mess as others have said. It wasn't mentioned but one or two days last week all early morning departures were delayed, I think it was Thursday or Friday when that was by at least 45 mins to an hour in most cases, maybe connected?

Both I hear - reportedly a one-off, last week was just the usual mix of stuff

At least one airline has been tanking fuel to NCL for at least the last month. Mainly due to hippies glueing themselves to the tankers leaving the refineries, apparently.

A spokesperson for Newcastle Airport said: "Due to temporary issues with the supply of aviation fuel to a number of airlines, we experienced some limited disruption to flights from Newcastle Airport this morning.

"Each airline has a contract with a fuel supplier, who then contract fuel deliveries to haulage companies.

"We have been working with all parties to minimise the impact of this disruption and the issue is now resolved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

I blame it on the lack of supply drivers outside the airfield. No glue specialists about the north east. I do not blame the airport. I blame Boris and the Monkey hangers that caused this.
