Anyone know or can guess when all the fill in slots will be reclaimed by their owners?

Concerns over the Teesside Heathrow Loganair route...last months figures show an average of 2.8 passengers per flight...

Do Loganair or the parent slot filler pay the landing fees?

The last 12 months have seen periods of full segregated dual runway operations and periods of single runway ops. I can't see any scope for mixing the two modes on the same day.

Thanks Dave - When the 09R/27L works were being carried out last summer and traffic levels increased didn't they operate dual until 2000hrs then revert to single ?

Heathrow's normal mode of operation (pre-pandemic) is to switch to single-runway operations after the last departure, until 06:00 local the following morning.

You are correct in that the switch to SRO can happen earlier if runway works are planned, but I didn't think that was what we were talking about here.

A few weeks ago, the CAA told Heathrow that airport charges could rise about 30 pence per pax, considerably less than what LHR had hoped for
I just bought a ticket (yesterday) out of LHR to Glasgow for June in cheapo class, and see an £8.90 airport cost recovery charge.

I'm guessing it goes to LHR, but wondering how it's allowed when the CAA granted just a 30 pence rise

And no, I don't intend to rack up a phone bill and spend hours talking to a call centre just to be given some corporate PR waffle

Issue first raised Heathrow Post #135 on 30.3.21...Slipped in unnoticed as a "UK Exceptional Regulatory Charge" but only applying to LHR!
Behind the deliberately misleading wording effectively you are paying to maintain staff car parking/check in desks & fixed facilities & functions the very wealthy owners of the airport should of course be providing & funding themselves.

The reality of this additional privilege to use LHR will only now become evident as travel begins to reopen slowly...Enjoy.

It's going to be T3 for Red from 1st June.
Heathrow Airport will open a dedicated terminal for passengers arriving from countries with a high risk of Covid.

its only T3 temporarily until T4 arrangements are made. T4 will be the main red list zone thereafter.

This doesn’t really work though. A lot of people will connect in Germany, Amsterdam, Paris etc so you’ll still end up with red list passengers mixing with others.

Not sure they will be around too long one that route when KU/BA economy fares are in the region of £400-450 rtn. Rather fly on a wide body than a single aisle for a 6 hour sector.

Can anybody on here please give an update on the border control queues? Have they returned to any semblance of normal yet? T5 in particular.

I’ve still heard reports and seen pictures of anything from 10 minutes to 4 hours. Seems to completely depend on time of day and how BF are feeling. Sometimes E gates are open other times it’s queues and waiting.

I am genuinely intrigued. How does this fast tracking system for BA and VS passengers that are fully vaccinated not make the UK Border Agency complicit with not treating all passengers, from all airlines equally which surely ought to be one of the fundamental rules for any border agency. If The fast tracking system was available to all carriers, should they wish to participate, that would be fine and dandy, but that isn't what the article implies.

If I were Air China, or say, United, I would be mightily miffed.
