The doommongers appear 😀. Probably correct though, as I suspect T3 will relocate to MME

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.
I think SAJN needs scrapped. A colleague has flew with Loganair 3 times in the last week and has had 2 cancellations and a delay. Itís gone tech for the fourth time in a week, unbelievable really.

Wonder if Loganair would have made this move if T3 hadn't just upped frequency to ABZ...
from what I can see itís 4 daily Sat and Sun. And 5 or 6 daily on weekdays.

Tech issues, again, I believe. Theyíve done well for the last few weeks though.

Any ideas why G-JZHK diverted to Manchester tonight? No weather issues or anything!

Regarding G-JZHK diversion- it suffered an instrument failure which precluded it flying in icing conditions. It's raining in Newcastle (airframe icing conditions) and gin clear in Manchester. I was on it.

New system, so they still come out monthly, but figures are two months behind the month. So October came out end of December. November will come out end of January.

Taking advantage of a lull in proceedings to ask a possibly strange question that occurred to me the other day...
Going through my aircraft photos, I noticed that every airport of any size (I'm excluding places like Stronsay and Alderney here) has a block paving surface on the ramp. The only exceptions I can find are Reykjavik (the domestic airport, not Keflavik), Vagar in the Faroe Islands, El Hierro in the Canary Islands - none of which handle large jets of the size of some that frequent NCL - and possibly Luxembourg, although it was raining when I was there so it's hard to say for certain.
Basically, why does Newcastle have a tarmac ramp?

Idle hypothesis here: Something to do with the possibility of subsidence or shifting ground? The Canaries and Iceland are volcanic (not sure about the Faroes?). Tyneside and Luxembourg are both riddled with mine workings, iron in Luxembourg and coal on Tyneside.
I'm probably wrong here, but any ideas / inside info?
