No doubt the thought (as per usual) of those who reside by a certain M1 motorway, close to an airport with half the through-put of London's third airport and are still bitter and twisted that their airport never did and never will make the grade.

Luton might well have done, but as it was not part of the BAA empire, it was never developed via cash from passengers and airline's flying from Heathrow and Gatwick.

Considering Luton was funded by reinvesting profit and a degree of investment from the Town Hall prior to the concession, a figure of 10 million plus passengers currently is not too bad. The Town Hall also makes around 43p for every arriving and departing passenger.

Why do Ryanair only base four airframes in Bedfordshire? Quite simply Luton will not pay Ryanair for the privilege of basing more aircraft.

If runway 2 is not granted approval, Stansted will be doomed as it will have to stand on its own two feet for once and not have the luxury of passengers flying from Heathrow paying for it!

The BAA must really hope the folk of Essex don't put up too big a fight otherwise Stansted's value on the open market will be small. No wonder the BAA are going to flog it off now (or trying to).

The BAA are hugely leveraged, so I guess the days of cheap deals to fly from there are over.

I could start a list of airlines that have bailed out totally or partially which would inc Wizz, Norwegian......., but my fingers would wear out from typing!

GOOD OLD STANSTED..any port in a storm
 
they all want stansted when the weather is bad.......cross winds at heathrow....lets go to stansted...fog at london city....lets go to stansted...snow on the hill at luton....lets go to stansted.....early morning mist at gatwick....lets go to stansted.......... its very rare that we are closed for any of these,compared with other stations.....especially cross winds.

Think you have just justified that quote Buster:ok:

I think in all honesty what some posters have been trying to claim is that Stansted lacks balanced movements as the vast bulk of the traffic at the Terminal side is loco. Air Asia X is more of the same.

Will they make STN money as an ex BAA Airport is the real question that the business faces?

BAWC move to Manston?
 
If you look at the Manston 3 thread you will see it is full of the possible move of BAWC from Stansted to Manston. But no mention here. Has nobody here heard about it?

daz211 8th Mar 2009 19:10

From what I have seen of the Manston thread its nothing more
than a wild dream thread, there always seems to be some NEW
Airline or service about to start but nothing ever comes of any
of it :oh:.

There seems to be more to this than just a rumour. MSE have been trying to get an extension to their operating hours, that apparently fits the times of BA's current STN operation. Which seems to suggest BA have an interest in moving the operation to MSE. If the interest becomes reality is another matter

AirAsiaX
 
Today at the cargo terminal there are people hard at work
putting AirAsiaX transfers onto Aircraft steps and from
what I could see onto a tug !

It's generally done for the first days operation only. Virgin put their logo all over the Aviance gear when they launched Glasgow services.
