I think it is a B737 700 not a MAX

Mr A Tis 16th Jan 2020 08:31

Doh!! I've just booked MAN YHZ in June via YYZ as there is no direct service. A bit more notice would have been useful :-( It's not on the Westjet website, so not bookable yet. I'm sure many potential customers would already have booked for June. Mind you if it ends up on a Max- it may well put many people off.

The article in the Manchester Evening News references an airline making the complaint.

GLA was certainly planned to change to 738MAX before the debacle

At 1908 arrival info on MAN web site showed BG007 as "due at 1841" when the flight had diverted and was actually on the ground at LHR. Are these feeds not permanently linked to reality? FR24 was showing correct info.

Could it be Leeds Bradford International Airport? LBIA

Apparently it was an airline.

It's got interference from British Airways written all over it.

A Manchester Airport spokesman said: "MAG notes the CAAís announcement regarding the request from an airline to carry out a market power determination assessment of Manchester Airport. Because the CAA has not previously carried out such a review for Manchester, it is under a legal obligation to agree to the airline request. We will participate in the review process and look forward to contributing to the CAAís work programme. The regulator has carried out Market Power Determination on Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports in previous years. Heathrow and Gatwick are currently subject to greater CAA regulation

Manchester Airport could face more regulation after steep rise in passenger numbers

Can't see BA having the time or inclination for this...

How much time and effort would BA have to put in??

I was working yesterday and use the info on the airport system for my job, had not even realised that the EY had diverted to Birmingham as there was no update which is down to ATC and the Handling Agents, found the info out by using FR24.

Apparently Thai Airways have cancelled their summer 2020 slots. No surprises there then. Anyone know if they have slots allocated for winter 2020? If so, could there be a delayed launch of this route. Anyone in the know?

Rutan16 22nd Jan 2020 13:48

Winter slots ainít up for grabs anytime soon.

On a differing note appears El-Al arenít doing too well again . Down to just a single weekly flight through to the spring, according to a well know ďroutes siteĒ

Cathay down to 6 daily in May

Hainan remains on 3 weekly through summer -not so bad given their financial conditions and cuts everywhere including their long standing Brussels flights down to five weekly in part of the northern summer schedules.

Indeed seems to be a general trend of consolidation across the entire Chinese aviation industry right now - the party are obviously fed up with the ever increasing and blooming debt this industry is creating for them !

No Seattle or SFO this coming summer

Still nothing to/from India cepting the Goa crab cocktail and beach service !

Flybe remains on life support through and if they collapse- well letís just not go there rights now

Gains a few

Juneyao three weekly

Virgin/Delta capacity uplifts and currently hollow promises on further routes in the near future

Biman to continue through summer

Jet2 continue to push forward at an alarming rate

Easy and Ryan a few new awayday aircraft trips

Air Baltic well we will see if they remain - historically a bit shifty in both senses of the word especially when it comes to committing long term to anywhere!

The shamrock plays the timetable game - guess the frequency today tomorrow next week !

Nice up lift from the Turks as they chase the budget Anatolian coastal market once again (as Euro area becomes increasingly pricey-it a cynical thing - only broken by mad murdering criminal acts) and THY chasing connections via their nice and new hub facility.

Westjet - nice short programme for the fishing community, seal watchers, and lobster eaters with touch of VFR traffic

Oh plus Sharm and Enfidha back on the map subject to the same caveat mentioned in the Turkish paragraph above

True the wreckage of TCX is gradually being back filled

Another negative a certain disruptive force at the end next week that will have an economical impact, yet to be truly understood by anyone even learned economists and their various differing models.

2020 is going to be a difficult year for the industry imho and a stable 1% even nil growth in terminal numbers might well be considered a positive result , a small drop may actually happen later in the year if the early bookings of holidays and even business planning trips (mine included) are anything to go by.

Seat capacity is said to be up at the moment however I expect some consolidation to happen after Easter if the current booking trends remain where they are.

Just donít see passing 30m this year or indeed next to be honest. Just my opinion happy to be proved wrong on this measure .










chaps1954 23rd Jan 2020 07:30

Wow that is a very negative view
Easy have actually added 2 aircraft, other than some long haul most of TCX has been replaced and some


spannersatcx 23rd Jan 2020 10:37


Cathay down to 6 daily in May
, surely that's an increase of 5 per day!

zfw 23rd Jan 2020 16:18

"other than some long haul most of TCX"
And there's why numbers will be down up to 9 324 seaters in the summer departing everyday, and the only slack taken up by expensive and only on certain routes VS. So around half a million seats down on last summer.

My bad !

Of course itís 6 weekly

Still imagine the utter carnage 6 daily would course among the what is 2 or 3 stevedores moving all those pallets !

Wheres the negativity just my considered opinion.

Listed quite a few positives and caveats at the end with a my desire to be proved wrong on final end of year figures
