I did like how the SDTV commentator talked about 30 movements an hour and was so surprised at a non UK registered Airbus being used.

I have never seen step free boarding before without the use of a pier. This saves SEN requiring an ambilift.

Southend Airport has issued an update on its discussions with airlines after holidaymakers were left "exceptionally disappointed" at the lack of new easyJet routes.
Maybe the moral of the story is that Southend should not raise expectations and then can't deliver.

More like an accurate description of what is happening at SEN with conclusions that coincide with the views found on the thread.

Some Diamond DA42s that's going to pay the bills!

No, it is KLM flight training academy using DA42s. Original post very much tongue in cheek.

Widely used in India by Indigo. They speed up turnround times at airports with unreliable amiblifts and can be used by passengers with a wide range of ability.

Is the departure board really that size, as it could show 2 weeks of departures or to April if displayed now. Lots of extras employed as passengers for those background shots.

These are normally Stansted flights but with the runway being resurfaced they have to find another temporary home.

So SEN will have to:

1/ Recruit staff on a 3 month contract.
2/ The staff are already there who are normally sleeping all night.
3/ The staff will transfer from Stansted.

SEN will have given residents zero consideration so if those residents want to kick off then that is their right, not that it will make the slightest difference. Maybe they should have access to the CEO’s home phone number for instant complaints so he knows what it is like to get disturbed sleep.
