The No Div notam has been renewed / extended from today until 18th April.

Hearing that virgin 747s are currently not permitted to use the new pier due to air bridge issues. Heard that the airbridges design means theyíre very close to putting a hole in the wing root, hopefully itíll be a quick fix they can do

Tha A350 doesn’t fit either! Something to do with a slope! You couldn’t make this up!

Actually, you could. It's called Brandenburg! Hopefully, this isn't a sequel and will just be teething issues.

Can we be a bit more specific about this and the B747 issue? Which gates are they supposed to fit and don't?

in terms of actually fitting on the stand the 747 fits, but the air bridges are designed differently which means a part of it is very close to causing significant aircraft damage

Many, many years ago, my university professor used to encourage us all to buy his very big book on how to design an airport.

It had all sorts of interesting things in it - it's not rocket science... :(

Sounds more like an issue with the airbridge manufacturer. Who manufactures airbridge equipment that isnít compatible with the Boeing 747?? Granted, numbers are reducing but itís still a widely used aircraft around the world.

Probably no 74`s at Sofia though as after declaring an interest in running Sofia Airport last year MAG confirms it has presented a bid in partnership with Chinese investment group BCEG with whom it also partners in development of Airport City Manchester.

Someone at Loughborough by any chance?

Could be!! ;)

Iím told the 350 was trialled on 110, the airbridge wouldnít get to the L2 door without hitting the engine and was 2 feet short of the L1 door. Was supposed to be trialled on 106 today but has been postponed until next week. L2 door is the preferred door so not everyone traipses through the business class section.

Bit of a downward spiral down the plug hole, shame as they finished off with amazing loads in the high 90s%

Artist's impression clearly shows a gap between the airbridge and the 747 on 106 and that's what they have delivered. :ok:

Whilst I admit it really isn't great, wont it in the long run not actually be a major problem, I say this because:
(I am in no way excusing the shoddiness of the situation, just looking at it from a different perspective)


1. Surely learning from pier 1, this wont be allowed to happen on pier 2/3.
2 There's surely going to be enough stands capable of handling the 747's from the existing T2 even whilst the second pier is getting built.
3. When pier 2/3 are built, isn't the likelihood that most VS will park in those two closer to the new lounges leaving pier 1 to Loco's/charters.
4. How many A350's, 747's etc, will be on the ground max at any one time? Wont there be enough stands in pier 2/3 to cope with these if the pier 1 issue can't be sorted? I know that's not the point but it should be manageable right?
