The airport was first closed briefly for a runway inspection after G-JEDP landed at 18:42; A20N G-TTNB landed 19:01.

The second closure was from 19:40 to 20:30 but I don't know the cause.

The airlines get their cut of that, too, by charging an 'administration fee' for each itinerary; £19 on Easyjet for example. So you pay more for splitting the flights.

That's back to front. Much air travel is discretionary, so beyond a base load the level of demand is established by the pricing.

It's not obscure economics, it's the entire basis of Ryanair's...

It was DH8D G-PRPE, shutdown port engine. Not G-ECOR nor a Vueling A320 as shown in the newspaper photo!

Odd considering that the A330-900 has basically the same floor area as the 787-9 which they already have in their fleet. Why diversify with a small fleet?

Perhaps they're cheaper.

Very nice, but quite a missed opportunity. We're at the point where adding an A300, A310 and A340 from commercial operators would have been possible to build the entire history of Airbus in the air....

Marvellous irony:
