Would anyone know the planned start date for the works for the northern runway project?

The current consultation ends on December 1st. Northern Runway and our Future Plans | Gatwick Airport LGW

So not anytime soon is the answer, I suppose. If at all.

Reading the consultation document - because I really ought to contribute as a user and neighbour of the airport - the Secretary of State's decision is scheduled for 2024, with 2029 as a possible in-service date.

Looking at the online flight schedule, Emirates brings back EK09/10 from 27th January with daily B77W.

Can anyone confirm if the 'night before' check in is open for BA ops?
Thanks.

Scoot Airlines LGW

Has the inaugural LGW-BKK been delayed? IIR, I think this was scheduled for the 16th, but no flight appears to be running on that day?

Could BA use the Emirates A380 Gates for their A380, or are there technical incompatability issues?

All gates are common usage at LGW, there's no reason BA can't use the A380 gate unless, perhaps Emirates part funded the upgrade and get first refusal?

Dumb question. ("Why are we not surprised?")

Given the rules on runway over runs and undershoots, is the idea to use 26R/08L more a good idea? My first visit to LGW was the day in 1993 when Continental B747 nearly hit the South Terminal, we heard the go-around from the viewing deck, and my one landing on 26R it caught me by surprise that we flew over the old Pier 1. Isn't that sort of layout frowned upon in 2021 aviation safety? The new Pier 1 actually stares down what will be an active runway.

Thoughts?

What’s to be frowned upon? Aside from the fact that the runway is used somewhat regularly at nights anyway, all obstructions are taken into account in performance calculations, which are themselves based on worst case scenarios + fat.

I’d imagine it would only be used for 26R departures and 08L arrivals anyway. Westerlies is fairly straight forward, Easterlies could be a bit more difficult logistically, hence capacity won’t be increased to the level of a normal two runway airport.

Why would BA want a gate for their A380… what route did you have in mind? Unless all the LAS MCO LHR shift condensed back at LGW.

BA short haul aircraft will be 18 based aircraft by May 2022 according to their press release. Interestingly a similar number of A321 aircraft remain in storage, although they may be too large for some routes.
BA long haul next Summer at Gatwick could be 11 or 12 frames next Summer too. So once again a decent presence at Gatwick. South Terminal hopefully be up and running. I believe discussions about this are proceeding. Be good
to use the BA lounges again!

British Airways

This is brilliant news for LGW RE. BA EuroFlyer and a welcome return of based short haul to the airport after over 2 years away. Looks like a nice range of routes there too with MXP (presumably replacing BGY), MAD, ATH coming in as new additions for LGW, hopefully they will work well in tandem with the LHR services. I also note that JFK is scheduled to be reinstated from 28th May next year and is now bookable on BA, so no doubt this will serve up as interesting competition for JetBlue on the route. With this news, no doubt South Terminal is being readied for a reopening? Congratulations to both BA and LGW and I hope that this will mark the return of more airlines and routes to Gatwick.
