The airport and the flights that did come and go did very well given that the wind gusts this morning were 76mph and the strongest gust in the uk was recorded near Alnwick at 99mph.

Grateful for the extra flight but who wants to return from a ski trip with a 7am departure from Geneva? With a two hour check-in and average 2 hour transfer that means leaving resort at 3am.

A check on the Loganair timetable for the peak summer period shows quite a cutback from NCL this summer:-

ABERDEEN .... 10 WEEKLY
BERGEN ....... 2 WEEKLY
EXETER ......... 5 WEEKLY
NEWQUAY ........2 WEEKLY
SOUTHAMPTON .. 15 WEEKLY
STAVANGER......3 WEEKLY

Part of a general cutback UK wide

What is the feedback on the new lounge?
It seems smaller than the old one which got very crowded and no nibbles/biscuits etc to eat that I could see.
However, the toilets are massively improved.

the LM offering for summer 24 before the cuts was.

ABERDEEN.........10 WKLY (NO CHANGE)
BERGEN..............2 WKLY (NO CHANGE)
EXETER.............. 5 WKLY (NO CHANGE)
NEWQUAY.......... 2 WKLY (NO CHANGE)
SOUTHAMPTON..18 WKLY ( 3 LESS)
STAVANGER....... 6 WKLY (3 LESS)

The connection with OSLO (via ABZ) has gone with the cancellation of the ABZ - OSLO route

**error on my earlier post...BERGEN should have read 2 wkly.

Ryanair look to be basing a 3rd aircraft from May until early October depending on aircraft availability. If it happens it will reduce the amount of out of base operations into NCL. FR are currently recruiting more crew for the base this season.

I'm reading about more changes to FEDEX routes which seems to cut MME out of the plans.....does this mean the NCL flights will remain?

Some changes to the LH FRA service. Daily service resumes from the end of march, but using a leased CityJet CRJ-1000 instead of the usual mix of CRJ-900/E190.

I currently have the misfortune to be at NCL.
The security is choas as well over 50% of bags get sent for a hand check and laptops, phones, pads etc taken away for check-in, even with the laughably called fast-track.
And the new lounge is completely full and can't get in.
Is there a worse airport in the world?
