I've been on the Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt quite a few times this year and it's always been busy.

Looks like it's a Embraer E90 in the schedule starting tomorrow, so slightly more capacity (and a more comfortable experience in my opinion) than the CRJ900 that has been working the route so far.
I have just done LH to LEJ via FRA return and yes the extra seats on the E190 must be good as the CRJ900 was full on way out and very nearly full coming back! But I must say personal preference is for the CRJ900! It really could do with going double daily, Especially when BA first choice for cutbacks is domestic!

Emirates frequency increases to 5.x weekly from today, still think the old times were better than the evening times currently used

And a visit today from a comparatively rare 777-200LR A6-EWF. Anyone know when the last visit of this type on the DXB service was?

18 March. Quite a few low density a/c operating at the moment. Same every year. Hajj/Ramadan related?

Wonder if Lufthansa will take advantage of the huge Amsterdam onward market (and chaos) and increase flights from Newcastle ?

FRA also seems to be having itís fair share of trouble and LH has had to make cancellations so they are probably not in much of a position to capitalise on it.

Iím well aware of the airport travel chaos around the UK and beyond, but up until recently, Newcastle has been spared the worst and itís largely been business as usual.

These last few days, something has changed though with 30 minute to 3 hour delays more frequent than on time departures. Even Jet2 arenít immune.

Has something changed these last few days or has their luck just run out?

Just busy first thing, I believe and then those delays ripple on through the day.

The ATC strike in Spain is probably not helping the situation either.

Was it worth even considering going against Easyjet.

Different airports, different markets, plenty to go round. They did compete for years anyway. I wouldn't by any stretch say that EZY had the market (or any tbh) 'wrapped up' either

While I don't expect the new Flybe to be around by 2025 and I'm sure it's a basket case. Newcastle - Belfast isn't a daft market to get into and there is enough to go round.

An extra a/c arrived last week - the usual Scottish vs English school holidays switch

One of which presumably came from Edinburgh which has lost two, down to 4.

have Jet2 ever done this before?

while itís a good move for both Jet2 and Newcastle I know lots of people who have previously been prepared to drive to EDI from
NCL to save a significant amount of £Ďs on foreign holidays due to the non-alignment of school holidays. They just be trying to shut this market down!

Do extra aircraft go into EDi/GLA in June early July?

Some Air France changes for September, flights increasing to 17 x weekly, with a 3rd flight operating early evenings on Mon, Wed and Thurs.
Night-stopper and mid morning flights operated by AF mainline, these extra flights operated by Hop!

Given the chaos in AMS, not surprised to see this.
