I have to agree. IMHO after Luton (takes the award every time), LBA is the grimmest most depressing major airport in the UK.

i prefer LBA to man any time,in my opinion and i use LBA a lot from touch down through security and baggage re claim 30mins then 40mins to home and i dont find the terminal depressing at all.

from touch down through security and baggage re claim 30mins
Surely this depends on the time of day.

high TSR2
my flights back into LBA are usually between 3pm and 6pm all with jet2 who are self handling and are spot on with the cases.

I would suspect who you're flying with has an impact too.

The last time we arrived into LBA late in the evening with Jet2 last summer, we were dumped on a remote stand and waited on-board for well over an hour whilst Swissports' only serviceable bus that day offloaded another two flights.

Conversely we've arrived on BA, disembarked via an airbridge, cleared security and been on the bus to the Train Station in under 20 minutes.

hopefully it's a hangar...
Whenever I see someone misspell hangar on an aviation forum, it makes me wonder just how much they know about the business. Hangers are for coats, hangars are for aircraft, as my old instructor used to say.

Snowman, Given your from Leeds i suppose its fair to say your somewhat more hardened than many to the effects on the soul of places like LBA.....

My closest is the "delight" of NCL. However, prices and all, it was just last week I returned through LBA with Jet2. The Wednesday morning flight down to ALC and back the following week. Other than a Go Around with the weather on return (to which I must say the crew handled perfectly), as soon as the plane was on the blocks the stairs were there, straight in and up the escalator, and through the border in no more than 5mins. Reclaim certainly less than 10. It really must depend on the handlers - in my case I must say the same, self-handling was spot on.

Leeds' facilities really aren't that bad - compact yes, but grim not at all. The terminal was clean, plenty of windows on the way through and down to the gates. Must have been some time since you were last through :ok:

I have to agree with Jet2 738 - I use EDI or GLA mostly but LBA from time to time and always find it quite agreeable, clean and the facilities okay, certainly not the grimmest airport I have used, that must be some European airport. UK airports on the whole are fine, including LBA.

Phew! Jet2_738 said it was perfect!

Summer 2017 on sale anything new

RVF750 13th Apr 2016 11:29

Quite a few of the 737-800s will be Brand new and much nicer to fly in, that's for sure.

Brigantee 13th Apr 2016 14:08

TBH Anythings got to better to fly in than some of the old sheds currently in service .

GJZHF
 
I see that GJZHF is in service today flying on LS251/LS252 from Leeds to Faro, it's first commercial flight for Jet2. Anyone know which livery this aircraft carries?

Any updates on when the other 3 new B737-800's will be in service?

LEEDS APPROACH 14th Apr 2016 11:08

HF - holidays livery. Did I mention A330?

garry8g 14th Apr 2016 12:53

Leeds Approach - A330??

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays Go BIG in Belfast

As expected, Jet2 and Jet2holidays have announced their 'Biggest ever flights and holidays programme' for Summer 2017.

Belfast routes are set to increase by a 10% growth year on year, with a new destination, Girona. The new flights will operate twice weekly - a total of 82 weekly flights between the two cities. Increases are also on LPA and REU, with a total 280,000 seats available.

The announcement comes alongside the extensions of the flying programme for 2017, meaning routes to FAO, PMI and IBZ with be flown earlier than previous years. (Maybe something to do with filling up the new a/c and sending them out to earn their keep)

At this time, only BFS S17 has been released for both Jet2 and Jet2holidays, with the rest of the UK to follow shortly :ok:
