soon we will be as bad as LTN !!!
 
News from Dunmow and Stansted and across Uttlesford including Stansted Airport. | New "kiss and fly" charges for Stansted Airport passengers

another stupid money grabbing idea copied from our neighbours disguised as an enviromental initiative.

If this must go ahead, I really hope the new area set aside for this is well planned, and doesn't end up with huge queues of cars stopping about 5 or 10 mins walk away from the terminal instead

everyone will pay the 2 except the locals like me who will wait by the car park barrier for their lift's :)

Luton makes 80 out of those drivers when they get a little penalty charge through the post togther with a free photo of their car.

I read that this charge is unenforceable and you should refuse to pay ..... it seems a risky strategy to me

Spot on Rat........the airport has to prove who was driving the car not who owns it.......

Sale
 
Now that the supreme court have confirmed Stansted must be sold (even though BAA are considering a further appeal), when does the sale have to be completed by? Has the clock been ticking during all the appeals and eating into the 2 year period to be sold? :confused:

Now that the supreme court have confirmed Stansted must be sold
when did they confirm this, I cant find it on the internet anywhere

davidjohnson6 7th Aug 2012 13:15

In late July, the Court of Appeal turned BAA down. BAA responded by saying they would seek a Supreme Court hearing.

Have the Supreme Court already heard the case ? Can't see anything at The Supreme Court
The court is in any case in recess until the start of October, so naff all is likely to happen until then

stuinn 7th Aug 2012 19:15

Agree, it was not the supreme court but court of appeal. However is the clock still ticking on the sale or does it start once all proceedings have been exhausted.

Latest departure to Gatwick is Wow Air. Last flight 3rd September.

adfly 9th Aug 2012 15:11

Its bookable until the 17th Sept from STN?

Aero Mad 9th Aug 2012 15:14

Odd considering that Iceland Express (and also Icelandair as of winter 2012) are already serving LGW - REK.

pamann 10th Aug 2012 04:23

And if we take into account what has happened at Gatwick of late... It won't be long before we say "Wow who?"

pabely 10th Aug 2012 13:56

Did I not question WOW lasting back in June???

pamann 10th Aug 2012 15:28

Regardless if they last or not. Gatwick is not the 'Emerald City' airlines that leave Stansted are lead to believe.

adfly 10th Aug 2012 18:43

Not for everyone I agree, but Iceland Express and Norwegian seem very happy there, and the latter have expanded significantly. Even Air Berlin seem to be doing alright on Nuremburg. Also some airlines have dropped out of both airports simply because of the recession and huge increases in the price of fuel along with the wonderful APD (Air Asia X in particular):E

Qantas 744
 
Has anyone got firm date and time for the arrival of the Qantas 747 into Stansted I am hearing so many random dates...

Would love to see this Arrive at STN.

I believe it MIGHT BE ferrying in from JFK and daystopping so flightaware might have your answers on Sunday night

daz211 11th Aug 2012 10:55

Thanks for the reply ...

Heard the routing is BRN-LAX-JFK then ferry JFK-STN as QF6008 ...
But nothing on flightaware as yet.
