Blackpool threads had lots of views and posts. SEN is the same. It's because with small airports everything matters. If Easy took a jet away from SEN, it would be...

If so the council are playing it down. Anything was better than BB.

This begs the question why did the council not make an offer when BB were desperate to sell the airport (they say) was making a...

Well rather than divert - What about SPOT FINES and they don't get their luggage until they pay up.

Diverting is more annoying than listening to the louts IMO, I know flying home after a holiday,...

I have flow these airlines many times and have yet to see one incident. Jet 2 I like but they seem to have been in the news more than the others, four published rowdy behaviour.

This is 2016, I don't know if any commercial jets will fly from BKP ever again. I expect even BB don't know that.
