STN Ramp Rat 20th Dec 2016 14:43


Jet 2 to base an additional aircraft from Summer '17 bringing the total to 7.
presumably that means that early sales are going well then

Good move from Eurowings, timings could have been better as all flights arrive late into Munich so weekend breaks would be hard. Filling the void easyJet left when they reduced frequency in favour of Luton.

Yes STN Ramp Rat.....Jet2 describing customer reaction as "phenomenal"..Are also adding extra frequencies on 4 already announced routes taking the number of seats available ex STN for Summer 17 now to 875,000 = +8% over the original announcement...SS

I wonder who's losing out to Jet2. May explain why RYR are hurriedly moving into the holiday package business.

pamann 20th Dec 2016 15:53

I think the biggest ones to take a hit at STN from this are the likes of Thomson and Thomas Cook.

Boeing737-8 20th Dec 2016 16:02

At Luton there is a rumour that Thomas Cook may base a plane in 2018. Could one be leaving stansted and moving to LTN???

LTNman 20th Dec 2016 16:04

Which could mean that LTN could benefit from those airlines in S18.

AirportPlanner1 20th Dec 2016 17:17

Not that I want to start the old STN v LTN thing again but what really would Thomas Cook gain by partly moving to LTN? Part of the benefit of having 3 aircraft based is that they can offer more flexible durations and more destinations. It's not as though LTN is short of competition either (assuming Monarch stick around).

If I were Thomas Cook and had a spare plane laying around I'd make it 4 aircraft at STN and compete with Jet2 by adding some new destinations rather than put one into LTN.

From years of experience on here it's clear a lot of rumours are just individuals 'wish lists' often made up on here.

There are few regulars who actually know their stuff and you begin to know who they are over time.

Boeing737-8 20th Dec 2016 21:29

Nothing to do with a wish. I'm telling you what I've been told and with Thomas Cook planning to do a Ibiza and Menorca but not having the plane availability at the moment. Not trying to throw anything into the mixer but just saying that Thomas Cook are looking at planning on basing a plane at LTN in 2018. This may be a plane from somewhere else or a new one or moving it from stansted due to the high competition. Jet2 are doing a very good job of pushing all airlines at stansted and what a gem for stansted to have. What it could of been for LTN if Jet2 had enough space to park any planes.

And the source of your 'rumour' please Boeing737-8?

I'm guessing that it's probably the first anyone has heard of it.

pamann

I think Boeing 738-8 is a perfect example of what you describe in your post 3775!

AirportPlanner1 21st Dec 2016 06:34

A bit odd as well that 737-8 broke this big LTN news here rather than in the LTN thread, purely a coincidence I suppose that it followed good news of a new based aircraft and five new routes.

compton3bravo 21st Dec 2016 06:44

Oh come on please, both airports are doing rather well at the moment and let us hope they continue to do so and in a way complement each other. So for heaven's sake can we stop this yours is better than mine stupidity PLEASE.

Boeing737-8 21st Dec 2016 14:07

Does my very good friend who is very high up at the head office in Peterborough good enough for you. This won't be announced for a while tho.

southside bobby 21st Dec 2016 14:31

Still on the positive side,MAG stating 1.2M pax for STN during the total festive period...23rd busiest for outbound with 43K...busiest day overall in/outbound combined is Dec 30 for a total of 80K...3000 for Christmas Day itself...Appears to me at least based on the previous year`s roundy therefore not scientific predictions to be an increase over the whole period of 200K......SS

davidjohnson6 21st Dec 2016 17:31

Is it possible that with Arkia / Travel Service entering the London - Tel Aviv market, that the route is perhaps ever so slightly over served ? On Thursday and Sundays there are already 10 flights per day in each direction, and with Arkia there will then be 5 different airlines competing against each other.

canberra97 22nd Dec 2016 12:58

Your be very surprised how big a market London to Tel Aviv is and I'm sure another entrant will do well.
