Couple of Ryanair changes for s23, Menorca no longer on sale but Alicante increased to 9 x weekly with double flights on Mondays and Thursdays. Would expect further changes

Quite surprised at the reduction to FAO but perhaps 4 weekly was just a little too much and pushing the price point down a little too far. I'm still surprised not to see more to Malaga. Personally would rather sh*t in my hands and clap than suffer Benidorm but Alicante keeps paying the bills for all 3 of our major operators so... Whatever gets the punters through the door I suppose.

Very odd that Wednesday gets 3 flights to DUB. Sounds a bit random and slot sitter-y to me, rather than commercially driven. Monday, Friday or Sunday I would have understood. Still, a flight is a flight.

Menorca seemed to do rather poorly for FR this summer so it isn't a surprise it's been pulled although slightly disappointing. I'd have thought they'd just reduce to x2 weekly and push the prices a little to see if that drove better yields. They know what they're doing.

As for Cork, I do hope to see it come back along with Shannon for S23. It would be nice to have and maintain 5 irish destinations available from NCL.

Now then... Madrid? Budapest? Berlin? Venice? Brussels? Hamburg?

Sorry meant one of the 738 seems to be upgrading to a MAX. two SNN flights are by SNN a/c and crew and the other seems to be a MAX and NCL crew so it seems NCL will have at least 1 MAX based next year.

Encouraging...

Either Paddies love the toon recently or Geordies love paying 7 euros a pint!

Either way, nice to see. My shamrock flight in October, NCL-DUB was rammed.

Might just be me but the Ryanair based aircraft aren't utilised very much over the winter season. Seems 1 aircraft Mon-Wed then 2 Thurs-Sun. Surprised Ryanair would do that

A lot of focus, including from me, has been on Flybe but credit where itís due they seem to have turned a corner the last couple of weeks.

It seems that Loganair have taken their place, however, and theyíve had some nightmare tech issues this week including today resulting in delays and flight cancellations. I thought personally they usually had a relief/spare aircraft but looks like they must be having similar issues as this isnít just limited to NCL. Hopefully resolved soon.

Isn't this normal? RYR have parked a/c up in the past over winter. Only 3 Jet2 departures yesterday

Believe it was down to crew illness.

I had a look at 2 random flights from NCL and both planes were 15 years old so tech issues to be expected and they need to have contingency plans for this.

Which is why they are replacing them.
How old was the United 757 that spent more time on the ground than in the air?

Exactly. Notwithstanding the fact that many parts and engines will have been chaged then are 15 year old aeroplanes really 15 years old...maybe just the makers plate!
