How did you become interested in aviation?

How did you become interested in aviation? As a young lad I grew up within 2 miles of Leeds Bradford Airport. At the time my mother worked at the airport and my farther would say "come on, lets go early to pick your mum up and we'll watch the planes". So we'd head up to the airport and spend an hour watching aircraft land and depart before my mum finished her shift. During the time my mother worked at LBA the airport was going through a period of rapid expansion, extending the runway and terminal building along with realigning the public roads surrounding the airport. The airport...
Day trip to Berlin from Cardiff Airport using both Flybe and KLM.

Yesterday i used Cardiff to do a day trip to Berlin to do some plane spotting at Tegel airport. My flight from Cardiff was at 10.10 with Flybe on an E175. I got to the airport about 08.45 which was a bit later than i thought i would be arriving as i got stuck in traffic on the A4232 on the way to the airport. I'd already checked in online and i was hand luggage only so i was able to head straight to security but i did notice how busy in general the check in area was. Security was pretty quick with the new machines better than the old ones and i believe making the whole thing quicker and 2...

Which is the smallest airport you have flown from?

What is the smallest airport you have flown from? For me it was the Bristol and Gloucestershire Gliding Club at Nympsfield in the Cotswolds above the Severn Vale near Stroud in Gloucestershire. My first and so far only glider trip was in a Schleicher KA-13 which was towed into the air and the pilot, who was brave enough to let me 'have a go' for few minutes, kept us circling, riding the thermals for nearly an hour. More recently I was taken up in a Tiger Moth from what is perhaps pretentiously called Torquay Airport in Victoria, Australia. It's a grass strip but the company running it...

Manchester: The big revelation...?

"The M56 link and 1993 MSCP expansion / level 4 drop off adaptation may not happen. Pier 4 is still a possibility; if it happens it’s not part of MAN-TP but the project will allow for it to be added in the future.Renaming of taxiways etc. will be in stages beginning this December. All the west side pier one gates are identical for both type serviceable, layout and location of everything. Same for at least the seven Zulu remote stands furthest north west. These remotes are “gates without air bridges” - serviced by busses but with the same facilities as a contact gate. Speaking of busses there’s new ones on the way Much was made of the slide in my earlier post showing the travel time for the busses. They’re confident the new airside perimeter only road layout will expedite bus times.Eventually the west side pier B gates will become T2, the east side T3. What happens to the actual pier was unclear.The big revelation (or not) was something to be announced soon - the next pier built may be pier 2 and then followed by pier 3. This hint was given some weight with the slide above showing state of play for 2020, with the large “pier 2 construction” zone. Still in discussion so we will see"......

Your views on ITV's "Yorkshire's Airport"

"So before I made judgement on the programme Yorkshire Airport, I decided to allow it to run a couple of episodes as I didn't feel like one was enough to go on.First of all I must say I am embarrassed to call it my local airport, it doesnt portray the airport in a good light at all. The manager who seen fixing the customer experience scores and saying love you down the radio is hardly professional, same for the guy who moved people's seats by their name and if he liked the name or not. It shows the airport as run by a couple of amateurs. The guys on the ramp was the only part of the second episode which was bearable to watch. Swissport and the team of LBA have truly let the airport down, made it out to be a clown airport. I can see why jet2 decided not to be involved in the filming and i can hardly blame them. What's more frustrating for me is I used to work at the airport and it was nothing like this, it's like the normal everyday staff who actually keep the operation running smoothly have been replaced by wannabe celebs whom are more like the class clown".....

Review: Birmingham to Lanzarote with Jet2.com

"Have just arrived in Lanzarote courtesy of Jet2. My opinion so far? Fantastic airline, they left bang on time at 3.25 and landed 20 minutes ahead of schedule, 10/10 for punctuality. The check-in staff and cabin crew seem to really love their job and greeted us with a genuine smile when we encountered them. I kind of wish they toned it down a little with the automated announcements, but I'm just nitpicking really. The food service was done on time and the flight was pretty relaxed. The aircraft was 19 years old (G-JZHH) but it looked quite new to me with comfortable seats and generous legroom. To echo many others opinions, I definitely recommend flying on Jet2, in many areas, they give other airlines a run for their money especially regarding customer service and with the amount of legroom"......
