As reported on Loganair thread, not unexpectedly, Derry flights showing ending up at LHR T2 from 28th May but booking engine doesn't reflect this yet.

Any links to this? Only early March DfT agreed to carry on funding the route to Stansted from Derry until 2023.

Another step forward...now to apply for an AOC with the lease agreement signed.

Good solid workhorse in the A333...seating will be 400+

Hope they don't go Tech as no local A330 operators and expertise. Air India & Jet tried them but gave them up.

Just with the Avolon connection and them having plenty of ex Rednose dreamliners sitting around I would have thought they would be a better solution than some old 330CEOs.

Even now, the leasing costs for a new start are significant between those two types, am I missing something?

Some of the regulars are that predictable.

POP have now added Kolkata and Goa to their destination list on their website. I was also wondering how long it would take for them to board a 400+ seat a330 if they use STN’s single jet bridges.

Do turn around times really matter for long-haul? I would think cargo unload/offload and refuelling would be rate limiting, rather than passenger loading. Plenty of airports worldwide board and disembark A330s via a single airbridge, DUB being one and almost all US airports that I can think of.

Norwegian(did)/Tui seat 340+ on their B789’s I believe. What’s an extra 60 odd passengers? An extra 5 minutes boarding?

Whats the seating config on the Emirates 777? Must be close to a similar figure?

I'm intrigued by FlyPop's promise to have a fixed pricing structure. IMO it seems an unnecessary promise and limits how you can manage your yield.

The 777s that EK use at STN seat 354 passengers.
i agree with your comment on pricing structure, they should be focusing on being flexible in their pricing structure to enable them to maximise yields.

Does "fixed pricing structure" mean that all pax on a single flight will pay the same price ?
I couldn't see anything on the website saying this, and wasn't sure what is being referred to. Would somebody be able to point me to where "fixed pricing structure" is mentioned on FlyPop's blurb ?

My understanding of it (but maybe I misunderstood) was that it referred to POP setting a maximum fare limit on all of their flights, therefore during busy times of year they could miss out on higher yields.
