With the amount of labour required to build the Olympic Games venues, this is hardly surprising?

OR

Massive COUP for the BAA and watch this space for more?

If I was within Luton Borough Council, I would be rather worried!

Well, they did pop over for an extended holiday around 1940 ;)

I'm hoping someone will know what this is all about? In the Sat 2 Domestics there are lots of signs up everywhere saying that if you are a regular flyer to UK destinations from STN you will notice that from Feb the gates are all changing and that you will/may no longer be boarding from the same/similar gates as you are currently. I don't really know how you could change the domestic gates?

From 1st Feb any domestic departure can be from any gate
i.e you could catch a flight to GLA from gate 2 in sat 1, 37 in sat 2 or gate 45 in sat 3 (or indeed a "traditonal" domestic gate)
Domestic inbounds will still arrive through the domestic gates in Sat 2, or be bussed inbound.

Well that will be fun for the passengers! LOL. Lots more pax ending up in the wrong sat.

Dare I ask why the sudden change to the location of domestics?

I would guess that the domestics sit empty at times when an International flight needs a gate - meaning buses to and from if they have no choice other than use that gate - change the method and you might get higher gate utilisation across the airport.

Not a sudden change, but something that has been asked for for a long long time. Just been waiting for the approval from the relevant authoritys.
Why should domestic departing passengers have to use certain gates when all the passengers mix in the departure lounge anyway?
Why should inbound international outbound domestic flights be limited to using the handful of dual gates, which at times can get very congested causing delays and inconvenience to passengers?
Its all basic common sense and makes for far better use of all available stands and gates.
The only people who may get confused to begin with are the regular flyer's who traditionally have always go from certain gates, hence the reason for the large signs advising them to check their gate numbers. Which all passengers should do every time they fly anyway.

I posted on here yesterday asking does anyone who works from Stansted know what work Titan Airways generally do.. ie, is most of their work sub charters for other airlines or do they focus on VIP work?

Not really sure why it would be removed!!! as its an AIRLINE based at Stansted AIRPORT and i'm asking what ROUTES they do.

Thanks x

Titan

They undertake charter, and some cargo operations. No VIP as far as I know.

They do some "quasi-VIP" work. Not with exec interiors, but if you want a charter to the Formula One in Monaco for 100 guests, or that sort of thing, Titan is a good first call. At the other end of the scale they do pilgrimage charters with disabled pax to Lourdes. The key is ad-hoc work rather than regular weekly series work for tour companies.

Much of their charter capacity goes in subcharters to other carriers when an aircraft goes tech or similar situations. They can sub-charter their 146s to London City operators as they have approprately qualified crews for the steep approach.

Indeed they can, they fly EDI-LCY-EDI on weekdays for Scot Airways in the 146 - going down on a morning and back in the evening (then onto the mail flight to Filton swapping with the other 146 on the FZO-EDI)

AGS
 
Does anyone know what has happened to the handling agent AGS at stansted.All the equipment parked up with no activity.Also is it true that servisair are in trouble?

xxx5572 7th Feb 2007 00:36

Nothing has happened to AGS at all as far as i know, as they are a relatively small handling agent they are able to park all their equipment in one place unlike those of swissport and servisair that cant do that with the ammount of equipment.
This is unless you know something we dont, Why are you led to believe Sevisair are in trouble, seem to have enough contracts to be healthy at least. :uhoh:

grapevine sez 'airberlin not happy'

tommyc2005 7th Feb 2007 09:29

To add fuel to Sat1's fire, the Captain was furious on my last AB flight to the point that he announced to everyone his disatisfaction with the ground handling and apologised for the disruption it was causing - no one to op the bridge on arrival, then no stairs appeared either so the pax were very late disembarking, the capt said they had twice requested boarding to start but no one came, then as we sat on board waiting for bags that hadn't been loaded the power became disconnected and we sat in the dark for about 10 mins, the temp drops very quickly! Eventually got away 90+ mins late. I observed staff in the terminal arguing over which a/c was which too ('This is the Tegel' 'No, thats the Tegel, this is the Hanover' ' No, this is Nuremberg, Hanover is on 22(?)' ), which really didn't give a good impression.

TUGNBAR 7th Feb 2007 09:55

I have heard whispers that there is something going on with AGS and AVIANCE. But no hard proof so I can only speculate

Sat1 you obviously know more than you are letting on. So come on submit your knowledge:=

Servisair in trouble
 
Servisair accounts are due at the end of next month and the company is suffering from a cash flow problem at the moment. All over time on full time staff has been banned until further notice. There is still over time going for part time staff. The company is hiring more staff at Stansted and at other UK airports. So this cash problem is not expected to last. I have been informed that this happens some times during the winter months.
