AA to go into sat 2
Not sure how true this but have been told that AA are going to get gate 37 (C44) in sat 2 for their daily flight. Plus they are going to put a lounge in at that end of sat 2.

It's amazing just how busy and delay-prone STN can be. On Tuesday I flew AB STN-TXL. We were number 9 for push-back, and there was a line of 9 aircraft awaiting departure from 5, with aircraft at 3 different intersections. Our departure time was 0730, but we didn't roll until 0838.

I have used STN innumerable times over the years, and that was probably my worst outbound experience.

In comparison, my arrival that evening (with AB DUS-STN) was startlingly efficient and easy - and I was through security in under 30 seconds.

Ok the daily flight by AA JFK-STN has not even started yet, but AA have added a second daily flight from 07APR2008.:D

Mattcam first up the whole plan was to introduce a second flight in the spring from day one when the Stansted flight was announced, so it is not as you claim being introduced due to a clammering of peeps desperate for tickets.

And with the greatest of respect, please try and use a spell checker before you post as it does you no credit when people miss the point you are making due to your appaling English skills.

SOE correct me if I'm wrong but I think correct spelling is appalling:)

Why the price rise at STN
Can anyone shed any light in the price hike at STN. Why has BAA decided to rise the prices of using this rather rubbish airport at a time when they want to get more people through the doors and more airlines.
AB pulling all domestics.
Sky Europe going to Luton dont want to pay the landing fees.
GSM closing everything down once again due to costs out of STN.
BAA will prob say we have got AA coming. Big deal one airline after seeing three cut services or leave. Plus if FR start pulling more routes?
What is BAA thinking???

dumdumbrain 12th Sep 2007 10:20

Maybe quality over quanatity till the new terminal is open, im more than happy for Ryanair to pull routes and a/c from STN and, with any luck bring more to EMA

BAA Charges
The reason for the hike in prices is very simple.
For more years than I care to remember, BAA was allowed to cross subsidise it's airports with the result that charges at Stansted were held artificially low as revenue from Heathrow and Gatwick was used to offset any losses. Luton Airport certainly tried to get this arrangement stopped on many occasions even resorting to complaining to Brussels.
BAA's ability to cross subsidise is no longer allowed by the CAA - in other words each of BAA's airports has to stand on its own feet. Thus in the case of Stansted were income has been less than costs, the only option has been to increase charges.
In addition, I would guess that in some cases, the special deals available to all airlines when setting up routes to new destinations are coming to an end - I think they typically expire after two or three years.

Ab - Stn-muc
Air Berlin will open a new route from London Stansted to Munich on 5 November 2007. The airline will fly twice daily from Monday to Friday and once on Saturday and Sunday

OLNEY 1 BRAVO are you insinuating that the BAA and its monopoly, used its dominance to influence the 'market'? Surely not!

Let us see the future and Ferrovial's interest in Stansted once the public enquiries for Stansted T2 and Heathrow T5 develop!

OLNEY 1 BRAVO 16th Sep 2007 19:21

You might say that, I couldn't possibly comment!

sat1 16th Sep 2007 19:38

Let us see the future and Ferrovial's interest in Stansted once the public enquiries
Heathrow T5 and Stansted T2 WILL go through,there is too much money involved for them not to.
