The early hours ASL which has been sitting on the ground all day is off to STN before going to Leipzig later. Was that the plan?

AirportPlanner1 noted the timings on some of the return AGP flights which allow for the addition of AMS.

Of course you're allowed. What's wrong with referencing one of the most popular cult musical films of all time (although I've never seen it - Lol), that celebrates less orthodox or reactionary attitudes to life?

Would BFS from SEN work operated by a BFS based frame?

I think the best plan is to chink away at EZY atm - and not engage with Ryanair like last time.

Although away based airframes is not ideal I do agree chipping away with EZY and avoiding RYR is preferable. Let them play at fortress STN.
An Airbus may be too large for BFS route.
I still think trying to get into bed with BA with weekend work could work. If they demand their own staff so be it to keep things ticking over until other London Airports have scarce slots so airlines once again approach for alternatives.

Southend Airport bosses are in talks with Easyjet to bring back a base for the budget airline, it has been revealed.
In terms of the future easyJet is an active partner of ours and we’ve signed a multi-year deal which is fantastic news for our recovery, we talk to them as well as other airlines around the return of other routes”
It could be two or three years until we see ourselves back at that 2019 2.1million and over 40 destinations flying it could be slightly slower recovery that we ever anticipated."
Let’s hope it happens.

Many an airport I’m sure are ‘in talks’ with EZY to base their aircraft, not sure it will happen in the short term however!

You make a good point. Simply advising EZY you would be delighted to have their aircraft based again at SEN and being told it is not ruled out totally could be described as being in talks at an extreme push. Being in detailed talks or negotiations is something else completely and you be keeping very quiet about it I suspect.

There is a difference between that situation and having "signed a multi-year partnership agreement with easyJet". But, hey, don't let that fact cloud your judgement.

Apologies, wasn’t aware they had signed one and assumed the original was ripped up when EZY walked out!

Esken issued a statement to the Stock Exchange yesterday announcing the easyJet partnership agreement. I don't know its duration (or should I say its intended duration) but it's definitely a step forward I feel.

Size doesn’t matter
Southend Airport had one of its busiest weeks with more than 1,000 planes touching the runway last week.

Not sure it’s fair to include both MJV and RMU!

I’m not sure KRS ever operated, given lockdown commenced before it was to transfer from STN.
