Maybe Servisair is cheaper????? price is key to LCC not service levels or loyality......!!....

Well after so much heard about the forum here Iam. News I have heard is that the Maxjet Contract is up for tender, and as Servisair made a huge mistake the other day with Maxjet having two filghts out one to JFK and one to LAS somehow they managed to send the wrong bags on the wrong planes, then I think somehow Servisair could be saying bye bye to Maxjet.

Wizz originally used Servisair at Luton but rapidly moved to Aviance due to allegedly continual poor service.

I have just noticed that there is an inboud flight today from Islamabad via Karachi, flight number PK 773. I thought that PIA pulled out of STN due to recent security issues. Are these flights back on now? I cannot see a departure though?

RE PK
 
It came in with pax on it but has gone out empty. PIA want to re start the route again and today was a test flight to see if they can run flights back to STN and if Servisair can cope. PK could be moving to Swissport but not sure on that. If they do restart flights it will be with an A310. I dont think it was a PIA aircraft today. I was told the aircraft was owned by a Turkish Airline.

And with all that you describe about them would you think that Swissport would actually handle them. :\ :\

What a load of rubbish, another stuped rumour regarding an airline changing ground handlers! PIA are happy with S/Air and from what was said today it looks like they will be coming twice a week during the summer as per last year.

"New" Maxjet 767s
 
Skyliner (http://skyliner-aviation.de/skyliner...98914c0e38611a) is reporting that Maxjet have acquired two Air Mauritius 767's. Any idea of delivery dates?

C'mon people this is VERY old news,a bit like the two a/c in question!!!!!

now stansted will soon be aproching the 24 million a year target, do you think stansted will ever take the crown as being the uk second biggest airport over gatwick if so how long do you think it will be till that would be the case

xxx5572 23rd Apr 2007 14:09

Im sure the answer depends on the approval of the second runway and completion without too many delays as many other airports are planning for a second runways, eg Birmingham. However it has the potential to become the UK's no.2.

Only time will tell

Musket90 23rd Apr 2007 18:57

It first needs to get planning approval to grow beyond 25 million to 35 million annual pax on it's existing runway.

STN Growth
 
Before they even get that BAA need to spend some money out in Sat 1 and Sat 2. There are air con units leaking in Sat 2, faulty doors in Sat 1. Stair wells with ripped carpet, damp up the walls and faulty flight information screens that have reported but still have not been fixed after waiting 4 weeks. Donít build new till what you have is up to speed and is in good working order. I am all for the new runway and terminal but at the present time look after what you have.

Iceland Express
 
Iceland Express could be running a 757 to STN over the summer months. Nice to see a new service today. GSM to Toronto J C Munro via Exeter. Wizz move first fligh forward a week.

DONTTELLTHEPAX 2nd May 2007 17:25

How did the new GSM flight go, I seen it was showing DELAYED :confused:

jack_essex 2nd May 2007 20:16

If you have a look on the Hamilton Airport website it is showing STN via Exeter around 3 hours late. Not such a great start but hopefully a one off? :-) Does anyone know how the loads on the new GSM route are doing? If you go to book for the next few days it is showing a lot of the economy and business fares as being sold out.

jack_essex 3rd May 2007 17:56

It's great to see another US destination at STN. That is a great price. The cheapest ECONOMY fare I found with BA in August was £787!

DONTTELLTHEPAX 3rd May 2007 19:13

Is Maxjet just adding this one new route ? is there more to be announced,
I thought I heard that there would be two new destinations,
I might be wrong.
