"Which is why they are replacing them"

But they've run them a lot longer than the 15 years you mentioned

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.
Winter weather causes carnage with elderly aircraft. There are no new regional aircraft in the 30/70 seat class. Bar ATRs and they are not the greatest of machines.

This week at NCL:

FZFG at NCL Tue
Handlers de-icing rig broke Wed
Aircraft tech Wed nt with cold weather issues

Couldnít get usual replacement aircraft in from ABZ due mass disruption, snow and ice causing havoc with crew and maintenance schedule. Also one 145 late back from C check just on its way home now and an ATR late back from C Check home earlier today, both over a week late.

Just about getting back on track now. Not a good week to be flying.

Paris. Are Air France cutting their Newcastle frequencies? From first April, the night –.stop aircraft appears to have been removed and replaced with a single A319 flight in the late morning. A far cry from the 3-times daily service operated last summer.

No....there is an overall increase of 2 flights a week...early season it rises to 15 weekly then drops back to 14 per week. flights per day vary between 1 2 and 3 daily. Gradually recovering to the 3 daily level.

Just looked at the week starting 1 April it varies from 1 to 3 - strangely (to me anyway) it's Monday and Friday with just one flight. (Mix of mainline and Hop!)

No nightstoppers on Sun/Mon and Fri/Sat IIRC. With a 3rd flight on Tues/Thurs?

No worries....it's all a bit of entertainment on a feezing cold day.
Look at my last post....when I typed the pax numbers they were all in a straight line....look how they've come out.....I am sober as well.

Very odd, really. Pretty much across the board, Monday and Friday are the days of the week with highest demand. Perhaps there's a liaison with KLM that we aren't seeing or the schedule isn't fully complete yet. We have to presume they know their market though. There are, however 2 CDG-NCL flights on Mondays and Fridays. AF mainline night stoppers.

As for LH double daily FRA, lets hope soon. I would like to see Aegean and Lufthansa support eachother and build *A loyalty in the North East. Turkish would be a nice addition to that as well.

BA decreasing frequency to LHR to 4 daily next summer.
Wonder if Loganair would have made this move if T3 hadn't just upped frequency to ABZ...

Bet that Loganair timetable bears no resemblance in 6 months. Talk about shifting deckchairs.
