Anyone got a list of the LHR diversions yesterday

LAX_LHR 13th Jul 2013 09:19

There was at least a Kuwait Airways B747-400 and Jet Airways B777-300.

Not sure of the full list.

FRatSTN 13th Jul 2013 10:23

There were a few BA A319/20's as well.

carbootking 13th Jul 2013 10:39

it was absolute chaos with the diversions , people were wanting to get back to heathrow and were told to make there own way there , and then send the bill to the airlines later , taxis and hotels had a good day

nigel osborne 13th Jul 2013 13:32

Thanks folks. Only had 2 at BHX but one was the IB A330

Stansted is a scaleable and flexible solution to the UKs aviation capacity needs able to offer additional capacity and then grow incrementally to two, three or four runways in the future.
Fewer residents are exposed to noise at Stansted than at other major airports in the South East; 258,500 at Heathrow compared to 1,250 at Stansted.
The space for additional runways, terminals, roads and rail connections is more readily available at Stansted than at alternatives.
Stansted is likely to represent the most cost-effective solution for the country. It is estimated an on-airport cost of developing a four-runway hub at Stansted would around 10bn much less than the cost of an Estuary Airport or expansion at Heathrow.

The only problem Sat1 is nobody wants to fly long haul from Stansted - many airlines over the years have tried and either failed or given up. You can pontificate as much as you like but the fare paying public will fly from WHERE they want to go to and its Heathrow, Heathrow, Heathrow and a bit of leisure traffic from Gatwick.

Sat1......have you swallowed a dictionary for breakfast :-) its true STN has tried long haul before, but it's biggest issue is connecting flights. Who wants to pay 5k for a fully flat bed from JFK.......only to have to jump onto an FR or EZY into Europe when they arrive in the UK. BA are trying he A380 into STN next week to make sure it fits. No mention of the 787 though, at least the new multi million pound fire engines would get a run out

Only because STN may be needed in the event of diversions.

Because of its size, the B787 is not an issue.

STN Ramp Rat 20th Jul 2013 14:10

so when is the A380 due then? I am surprised it has not been well publicised given that it will be a first visit of the type

commit aviation 20th Jul 2013 14:18

Plans tend to change - there have been a couple of suggested dates so far but currently its coming from BHX on the 29th & leaving the following morning to SNN

Lets just hope for BA sake that swissport don't use the same jet bridge driver that met the qantas Olympic team or it could end up with a hole in it bigger than the Ethiopian Dreamliner :-)

easyJet Contract Renewal
 
As most of you are aware the easyJet contract at STN is up for renewal with Menzies. It is believed that Swissport will be bidding for the tender of this contract but they will not be lower their handling fees to in order in outbid Menzies. With the success of the Swissport/easyJet operation at BHX it is believed EZY will be looking to bring this to STN...
