There really needs to an up the ante for these slot sitters who just arenít using them - not necessarily a LTN problem, but they need to start forcing the likes of BAW, AFR, KLM and DLH.

And who holds all the power at Luton, the airport or the likes of Wizz and Easyjet?

Not at the airport they don’t. It is run as a secret organisation that suppresses information and only releases it when it has to or releases controlled information via its publicity department to give a positive spin. A bit like the Kremlin.

Blue Air now seem to have been consigned to history. Their fleet is dispersed following regulatory issues in Romania.
None of their Luton routes was uncontested, so Wizz will pick up the demand, but what of the slots?

Have they officially entered receivership, their slots will have value so would be put up for auction rather than just given back so ACL can just reallocate?

Two MNG Airbus freighters overnight, that's a first? Or just a historical flightplan.
Didn't they used to run a complementary service to EMA, has that stopped now?

I do wonder how Ryebridge win every single contract for groundwork. Whether it be runway resurfacing, new taxiways, to the new forecourt at LAP, they get every job and it has been that way for years. Some suspect that they are just awarded the contracts without tendering.

There's probably been some sort of previous tendering arrangement when you effectively bid to become the 'preferred supplier' for a period of time for specific categories of work - this means you don't have to separately tender for each piece of work.

Back to airline matters, I notice a couple of football charters are operating out of Luton which would normally be operated out of Stansted. A Thomson flight to Marseille on Tuesday (Spurs supporters) and a West Ham flight to Bucharest on Thursday. Is the Stansted runway closed already, I thought it will be closed for just two nights in November

I think it's called a framework agreement. It's common on the railway also

Ryebridge will have a good amount of plant & machinery already onsite which will reduce costs all around. If it went to another supplier then all that would needed to be taken offside and another suppliers equipment brought in. Not very green!
There is also the continuities of working with the same team members.

Airlines and staff that get taken over don't seem to do too well in the UK. Full circle, as I remember easyjet taking over the BA low cost carrier Go

BA have never been a fan of Luton. Fine for a diversion but that is it.

Could I gently and respectfully suggest moving discussion of a possible takeover of Easyjet by IAG to the Easyjet thread instead of the Luton thread ?
EasyJet-6

And there was I thinking that Easyjet is a Luton based airline and is Luton’s second biggest carrier. Yes I agree, nothing to do with this threat.
