Back around 1997/98 there was a flight on a Friday night/Saturday morning at 0130 ish to Athens, with a majority of pax going to Aegina and other islands with tour operators such as Goldensun and Kosmar. I believe the flight was always very busy and popular. The A3 flight times are great for onwards connections to a whole heap of flights and ferries. It also means you would get to your final destination in the morning and not paying for a whole day of accommodation, getting there late evening, which seems to be the case with a majority of Greek flights from NCL.

Interesting - The Tyneside Greek Community FaceBook page has 1000 members - I can't see that making much of a difference to economics

"unlike our friends at FLYBE who gave would-be travellers 1 weeks notice of the commencement of service."

and probably they cancelled it 24 hours before departure

Ah, these youngsters - if it's not on social media, it doesn't exist!

Athens has some good prices but only runs for a short summer season. Could do with earlier start and run over to October.

Boring and repetitive again, I know, but hearing that the BE flights today will again be cancelled although not confirmed.

Seriously, what is the point? They’ve lost all credibility now and might as well pull the route.

These routes grow. AIR the Aegean Edinburgh service used to be twice-weekly summer only, it's now AYR and will be thrice weekly next summer.

Couple of interesting movements.
First visit of a 767-400 late last night with the Bahrain Royal Flight A9C-HMH operating in from STN and out to Bahrain.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Saudi 787-9 HZ-ARD currently inbound to pick up the Newcastle team​​​​​​​

Any thoughts on why CORK is the only route with Ryanair that is not showing days of operation beyond March 23
