Maxjet and Eos went under due to AA making everyone think
they were really going to make a go of STN...
We all now know AA only came to STN to push out MAXJET and EOS.

Virgin is the only Airline to offer direct flights from the UK as far as I
know there is no competition on this route...

bid pedantic I know, but BD still have about 3 or 4 more weeks operating MAN-LAS so there's competition of a sort. More logical for VS to also operate MAN-LAS to keep it all "in-house".

So with the BAA in financial meltdown, yet another airline is moving from Essex into Bedfordshire! My mole indicates that more could follow!

EL AL moves into Luton-26 March, 2009

Ah so it was all someone elses fault? Damn that free market. Nothing to do with a flawed business plan, old aircraft, relibilty, sporadic route launches, unusual market placement and serious under funding?

Goodo. Let's blame everything on the other guy who gave them a run for their money. Daz if Stansted is a London airport then American were defending their London routes, better served from Heathrow. If you can't play with the big boys that's what happens.

Just my opinion, but when seeing all those ads at Canary Wharf DLR station for AA to NYC, it looked seriously credible.

Sure, BA want AA to be flying only at LHR, but when the economy picks up, if Continental (or maybe Delta) want to get imaginative, a couple of flights a day to/from STN could do well

:rolleyes: Obviously not in so much financial meltdown that they feel the need to charge for dropping off passengers, plastic bags at security, non-refundable baggage trolleys or to get to the "airport station".

Stansted everytime! :ok::ok::ok:
Luton if I have to :yuk:

EL-AL To Luton
 
you are welcome. I for one will be glad to see the back of them. Pax with attitude, Crews with attitude and large chips on shoulders. Security Agents with attitude bigger chips and a total distrust of anyone not speaking Hebrew.

So with EL AL going to Luton, what is left for Servisair now, their workload is dwindling !

6 x times a week would have been an extra amount in the financial pot...

Air Transport International
 
Air Transport International 207 due to land at 06.14 tomorrow from Toledo.
Any info on this company?
Could the flight be for the G20 this week?

daz211 30th Mar 2009 18:25

Lock down
 
There is alot of security underway around Stansted, loads of
police tape around fields, wooded areas and large concrete
bollards in the roads around the old side.

Word at STN is AirForce One is due around 2200-2300 tomorrow
so that will upset Ryanair if true, slap bang in Ryanairs busy arrival
time...

Richard Taylor 30th Mar 2009 18:49

daz,

Nah, isn't that for O'Leary? ;)

Seljuk22 30th Mar 2009 19:19

Last winter FR and U2 reduced their fleets/capacity at STN.
How many a/c will they have in the summer and is the capacity of these 2 main players the same like last year?

If the their web-site is correct it will at least be very rare to see a DC8 at STN again.
