Skipness One Foxtrot

I can't imagine any airport being confident in Eastern running a trunk route. You'd just about get the ink dry on the advertising and they'd pull out.

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.

You hire crews on zero-hour contracts, it's not rocket surgery.

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.

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.
