Stansted Airport, Essex 1,530

(Crimes reported to Police, Jan 2012 to June 2013)

For comparison:

Luton Airport, Luton, Beds 255
What is the point you're trying to make and who are you trying to inform, or impress other than yourself?

To have the urge to even post stuff like this (without even the decency to provide a web link) just shows what an embarrassment you are to the professionals and aviation enthusiasts on this forum.

It only emphasises your lack of intelligence or interest if you seriously have nothing better to contribute with.

I guarantee if you came across Luton having higher crime rates, or any stat that undervalued it under Stansted for that matter, i.e "Crimes not reported to Police, Jan 2012 to June 2013" a good example perhaps, then you would most certainly keep schtum about it wouldn't you?

I don't grudge your preference for Luton, but to have such a hatred with a passion for Stansted and to have to post stuff like this to show that, to me only shows a level of insecurity in what you support.

Please grow up a bit and stop filling this forum with meaningless crap.

While we're here, I would also like to point out the good news we've had from Thomas Cook, who by the way doesn't serve Luton.

Here is, as ever required... the source: Stansted: Thomas Cook Airlines adds additional aircraft to London Stansted

Going from 1 A320 to 2 A321's, more than doubling seat capacity at an airport (or on one occasion LGS, a "turd") in the "wrong place" is quite a commitment for a company that nearly went bust in the last year or two.
Looks like Luton isn't all that more attractive after all, not that I have a problem with Luton of course.

150,000 passengers flying with them from Stansted next year, a heck of a lot more than those who will report a crime to the police!

Well said FR. Next we will debating who is best at doing their police job!!!!'

The usual suspects are out and about!

My information, as quoted in my post, came from the Daily Mail website (not one I habitually frequent, but one which Mrs LGS favours).

I thought the comparison with Luton and Heathrow would be of interest, but it merely caused the locals some discombobulation!

And the usual suspect (notice no "s"? That's singular, meaning your on your own mate) is out and about **** stirring again and contributing no knowledge or experience to this forum.

Link?

If you can't provide a link, your information isn't quoted from anywhere, just supposedly true according to your say (which isn't much of one I may add).

No. You thought, as ever, you would come up with some lame excuse to show your dislike of STN. But I must say hats off to you, this has definitely been the most entertaining one for yet if you ask me!

OK, I will provide a link

No point in shooting the messenger! Stansted has more crime than places like Brixton and Toxteth.

Stansted has more crime than places like Brixton and Toxteth.
That's not really the point, the fact is the figure is still extremely tiny compared to the amount of people that not necessarily fly, but even go to Stansted Airport in an 18 month period.

The point is the context in which LGS originally posted. With a post entitled "hold on to your wallets" to something almost insignificant when put to scale, it's not rocket science to work out what LGS is really yet again trying to do!

LTNman 12th Aug 2013 05:41

As the post codes listed are showing 6 characters it is pin pointing buildings and individual streets. No doubt an area somewhere like Brixton has more crime than Stansted but more crime is committed in the terminal at Stansted than any individual street in say Brixton.

The locals around Luton have been complaining for years that thefts from cars parked at the airport, which has a LU2 post code has increased their car insurance premiums as they also have LU2 post codes.

Strange though why the terminal at Stansted has more crime than say Heathrow or Manchester but then there is more than one terminal at those airports so they probably have more than one postcode.

Also worth noting that Belfast Airport is number 3 for violent crime

Wow, The Daily [email protected] surpassing itself with hysterical, misleading nonsense. Shocker!

Any possible confusion about the quality of this source is confirmed by checking out another of their incisive pieces of journalism

Look a little closer
 
If a good look is taken at the breakdown of crimes at Stansted it may be seen that a lot of the reported crime outcome is offensive weapons, most of which are recovered lock & flick knives plus Mace and other self defence items whilst legal in most of the EU are not in the UK, which are found at security bag and body searches. The other high incidences are shoplifters, because airport shops are easy targets and drunk and disorderly, all to often arriving this way (it costs too much to get pi55ed at the airport)

They are not baggage handlers as such, they screen OOG

This should be of some interest to LGS6753.

pegasus airlines
 
Most nights there are3 flights to istanbul from stansted 23.35 00.40 03.20,are there that many people wishing to fly to turkey? if so any thoughts on pax numbers per plane?,would it be more cost efective to fly one large plane rather than 3 smaller ones

Pegasus only have the B737-800, so no larger alternative.

rutankrd 26th Aug 2013 14:01

One flight is a tech stop and is actually headed to Ercan Cyprus ,one goes on to Gaziantep and the final flight is a terminator.

Unusually for a flexible fares airline they also hub via Istanbul East with connections throughout Turkey and into the Trans Caucuses ideal for oil/gas rigg workers (as opposed to salesmen !)

whitelighter 26th Aug 2013 15:11

Anyone know what the Turkish Air 737-800 was doing at Stansted this morning?
