Merger talk
With servisair putting the part timers onto nil hours and aviance downsizing(with added work) is it time for the two to merge with a view to protecting what work they have? Obviously servisair would need to make some redundencies,but that would be only short term.

Think you'll find its a done deal,7 redundancies imminent

Why is this only coming out now? Those redundancies have been on the cards for several weeks now.

Some humble pie needed there micky71 me thinks!:)

mickey71 6th Jan 2009 23:47

when i are they suppose tostart flying then,as i work in stansted there hasnt been any news of this going around as yet,unless the person who made the post works at stansted and knows something,since pia pulled out rumours have circulated time before that they were coming back but as yet,nothing!

and there has been rumours of other airlines coming,mentioned in the press before and its all blown away,so until the airline make an official announcement and the aircraft pulls on stand i think given the current climate we will wait and see,if it does come off then all well and good as it be good for the airport.

Good News For Pub.
I have heard rumours that when the new runway has been built at STN,the little thatched pub that is at mole hill green is to be left standing and will be used as the new airport social club.....I THINK THIS WILL ADD A NICE LITTLE TOUCH.. and keep all the anti airporters happy...as they wont be able to use it , because it will be airside.....cant wait to sit in the beer garden(drinking iced tea) watching my next job come in.......roll on the long hot summer days.

Grizzler.... How would you see your next flight come in on a long hot summer day when you only work nights

GRIZZLER 12th Jan 2009 13:51

as i sit in the beer garden(with my iced tea)time around 18.30 ish....plane flys over broxted to the hiss and boos of the so called locals.....i could be on my bike and clock in for 19.00 ready for the offload.....cheers make mine a double.......you can dream.

Just read in a Pakistani newspaper that the PIA's lahore to Stansted flights will start from 01/04/09. These will be twice weekly indirect flights via Dubai. Does anyone else anymore info on these?

Yeah right. The real reason's so much funnier :O

TUGNBAR 26th Jan 2009 22:09

Come on FEROMAN tell all!!!

FEROMAN 26th Jan 2009 22:26

Well I guess they closed while they were busy checking the runway to make sure there were no more nuts lying around. Or any more wheels!

Just after the runway de-icer truck driver noticed one of his wheels overtake him :eek:
