Seems that Belle Air won't be flying to Stansted any more

Source - Belle Air

Where did you hear that?

Keyvon 25th Nov 2013 13:27

BelleAir Albania went bust last night.

sxflyer 25th Nov 2013 13:36

I did hear though that Belavia might be moving north from LGW next year. I gather they use E-jets nowadays, so perhaps with the high charges there is something in this

whitelighter 25th Nov 2013 14:13

That'll do it

Always believe a route is running after first landing.

The entries on wikipedia were added by someone who was not logged in to wikipedia and gave only an IP address. The IP address is registered to an Internet provider based in the UK. Until today, the IP address in question had never made any other edits to wikipedia, so cannot assess them based on their past actions.

Either it's a wiki-vandal, or it's someone who wants to leak without being identified.

Interesting

sxflyer 26th Nov 2013 20:57

Apart from the timing (end of the peak summer season) they are all quite plausible routes, but I guess that also cannot discount a fake entry by a dreamer ie picking a bunch of routes that aren't currently served

pamann 26th Nov 2013 21:02

Maybe an announcement is imminent . It would tie in nicely with the promised increase from EasyJet. I guess now we just have to sit back and wait.

If true it's strange that ALC is in the list, as the route has only recently been moved to SEN. Would load factors support flights from both SEN and STN?

sxflyer 27th Nov 2013 15:43

I think it's a slight misconception that ALC 'moved' to SEN, as SEN operated before STN ceased. I think it was more to do with EZY removing based units, and the casualties included routes where there was direct competition with FR.

Nowadays aside from the blossoming relationship with MAG EZY seem more up for the fight with FR. So if this is true, the inclusion of ALC doesn't surprise me, more the end of summer start.

NCL is an interesting inclusion to the list given that NCL-LGW is also being launched

NickBarnes 27th Nov 2013 16:49

All removed of the page now

FRatSTN 27th Nov 2013 17:04

Certain aspects of all this make it seem as if it could be true.

Needless to say the deal with MAG certainly helps to make this more likely to be true.

The choice of routes seem realistic on the whole (although I'd doubt Newcastle).

Funnily enough, the start dates seem convincing. EZY do not get any new aircraft until 2015 I believe. So after the peak July/August period, some bases may lose an aircraft or two allowing EZY to allocate them to Stansted from September.

Also, no EZY services are currently on sale after 14th September 2014 at all, so if true this could maybe be announced when flights after Sept 14 are released for sale.

Having said all this, my guess would be that somebody is just fooling around on Wikipedia and that none of this is true, although I'd love to be proven wrong. Almost seems too good to be true!

j636 27th Nov 2013 17:54

I smell a lot of bullsh*t with EZY growth at STN, those routes won't happen.

For a start they have left Helsinki and why would they open routes to places like Rome/Milan with FR already operate 3 or 4 daily flights.

It's Gatwick and Luton for the main business market and the likes of Southend for holiday flights.

Since when has wikipedia carried any reliability? It's an open website which any moron can edit with fanciful ideas! :ugh:

Not really fair......................oh wait its accurate.

pamann 27th Nov 2013 20:19

In all honesty, who can say? Until it's in (official) black and white, we will just have to wait and see what the MAG/Easy promise brings. Who ever put it on there, it was a (generally) good choice of destinations and looked pretty plausible. Wiki is controlled by the public, so it's also worth bearing in mind that as easy as it is to apply changes to Wiki by adding content, one can also delete content just as easy too. For instance I could go on there now and cancel BA's LHR-JFK route as of XX/XX/13 and cause a whole load of conversation. Though I think less, if any would be inclined to believe it.

It's just a waiting game... How long a wait we will just have to wait and see.

NickBarnes 27th Nov 2013 20:47

Yes some fit well, but ones like Helsinki which easyjet pulled out off completely seems very unlikely they will go back again, so I feel that it's no true, but as said lets wait and see what happens
