It is fantastic to actually see these new routes on sale.

There does appear to be a gap in the schedule between 12:45-16:50 every day except Sunday, so an off-peak route to somewhere like...

Problem is though STN is end of the line, SEN is not. If fares to SEN were hiked, people would just buy tickets to Southend's main station.

Its a fair comment Phileas, I stand by it being a plausible route but yeah whether it would last is another matter.

Phileas Fogg - a better question would be to ask how many residents/businessmen of City of London and surrounding area would make use of a link to NQY from LCY for a leisure break. Afterall, Ibiza...

Pax numbers on BHD-STN are poor, but there has been quite an upward trend so far in average pax figures per flight so maybe they will persevere until the launch of the Euro routes. Advertising and...

There certainly seems a strong sense of doom and gloom around here and its justified to an extent, but we have to look at the wider picture - the economy isn't in a great way and if you look back...

New routes from STN/FR resume to NQY?

Was making a booking just now and noticed Newquay was an option on the menu though no flights seem available to book. This is on the new version of the site. I know sometimes old routes appear on...

lfc84, IOM is highly unlikely, CDG virtually no chance.

Just seen on LGW thread the AB flight to Hanover is to be scrapped from end of July, leaving Nuremberg as a sole route. I wonder if this means rather than AB upping sticks from STN altogether, NUE...

Loud Prop over Ipswich, 8am 5/6/11

Random question, but an extremely loud prop aircraft woke me up this morning at exactly 8am over Ipswich marina. Was not the sound of a regular passenger aircraft, plus there was nothing suitable...

BHD-STN

I make it 5994/67 flights = average of 44.7. Not sure if there were any flights that didn't operate over the Bank Holidays?

The quicker STN is sold the better. Look at how LGW has flourished, partly by taking STN's airlines. It makes good sense geographically for both Air Asia and Norwegian to be at STN over LGW. The...
