My understanding is, that following the incident, MAN closed the runway for inspection. Hence the diversion to LPL.

Just a point of view after visiting there with PIA in the 1970s and more recently with Albanian Airlines. Depressing describes it perfectly! It's just a point of view - I realise others may differ.

Liverpool has enough scallies of their own, without importing them from Albania! (I speak as a Scouser btw). As someone who has spent time there, the thought of arriving in TIA at 0400L would fill...

SWBKCB

I will concede that it provides much-needed work for EZY staff and others at a difficult time, but their record with routes from LPL is not a good one,hence my lack of optimism.

Well, western Europe. Not too many destinations in Eastern Europe. (I used to have to fly Swissair to reach, Bucharest or Sofia, and the services to the other capitals were infrequent).

The Great Bitter Lake is extremely saline in comparison with ordinary seawater. If she's there for any length of time, which could well be the case, it won't be doing her hull any good.
