At risk of continued thread drift I've boarded and disembarked a number of Ryanair flights at Tenerife using airbridges

AENA, the Spanish airport authority insists on jetbridges. Ryanair arenít happy about it, but yet continue to fly to AENA airports where there is money to be made. The turns are scheduled at 45 minutes at AENA airports IIRC.

I flew back from Frankfurt T2 to STN with RYR in July and all boarding was via an airbridge!.......A pretty civilized experience compared to the normal scrum!

No longer true at Malaga.

They have built extensions recently to gates on Pier B and C directly prior to the airbridge which are steps/lifts down to the ground so they can board via the forward and rear steps. Pier D (Schengen only) also has the option built in as standard.

I can only presume it's because of RYR is the largest carrier at AGP.

I haven't seen any other carrier besides RYR use this however; EZY, LS, etc, still use the airbridge on the same gates.

Can confirm this at certain gates yes, though from what I've seen it's only Ryanair who use them along with Air Nostrum for obvious reasons. EasyJet and the rest seem to continue to use the airbridges.

Are there any plans to add an extra aircraft or two to the GLA base following the collapse of Thomas Cook?

Reportedly due at MAN from Kazakhstan on Nov 5th - no idea whether itís originating there, or thatís just a transit stop en route from somewhere further east.

GLA is due to get 1 additional aircraft next year anyway and there is a possibility of an additional one taking GLA up to 9.

Pickle Forks
 
Any issues with the Jet2.com NGs?
Qantas grounded two NGs now due to the wing pickle fork crack issues.

I
From your quote it seems they were on a "Jet2 the airline " flight; perhaps that?

castleford tiger 2nd Nov 2019 07:24

I think its a bit harsh.............but assume Jet 2 counter claimed v the airport authorities?

Whilst they are on a jet 2 holiday ,we must pay for ground handling at these places. The failure to protect our passengers looks bad on JET2 But the issue was clearly the airports.

Is that anyone's view?

SWBKCB 2nd Nov 2019 07:28

It's clearly an airport issue - it's irrelevant which a/c the pax got off (which was how I read ATNotts original point).
