Newquay coup as Scandinavian Airlines announce flights

Well, I bet few people saw that coming. That's certainly a coup for the airport. According to another website the CPH-NQY route begins on 28 June. There are no details of frequency or duration of the service. In the past SAS has operated short season summer routes from Stockholm to Bristol from the end of June to mid-August. I wonder if SAS sees this primarily as a route for Danish tourists to visit Cornwall along the lines of the Eurowings routes from Dusseldorf, Berlin and Stuttgart.

Leave meant many different things to different people at the time of the 2016 referendum and for many Leave voters it meant something entirely different to the governments own interpretation of Leave which is what Teresa Mays deal is. The Conservative government itself is split for exactly the same reason as they interpret the vote in a different way. That was the biggest problem with the In or Out option as the vote didn't mention things like the Good Friday agreement. The Leavers quickly start dropping off when out means x, y or z. Remain means just one thing.

Went out Tues (18th) afternoon came back yesterday. Entered the central security are at 1pm and there wasn't even a queue. I find it most frustrating that you can't see onto the apron unless you pay £20+ (hopefully it will be better with the extension). There were 42 pax on board mainly seated at the back, push on time arrive DUS 20 mins early. Seated in 14A, about 2/3rds along the engine, seeing down OK but not across. Only one announcement from the flight deck, slightly garbled and the 2 stewards worked quietly and efficiently. I only spoke on disembarkation. Parked on a remote stand...

07/08/18 Birmingham Airport check in and security. We arrived at the airport earlier than usual (I'll explain why later) and were very pleased to see check in for our flight already available and after being greeted by a very cheery young man we joined the back of a lengthy queue. Any fears of a long wait soon vanished as things were moving very steadily and in no time at all we reached the front and were greeted with a big smile from a very pleasant young lady. After completing the check in procedure I was asked a question that I have never been asked in the past, "have you used...

BRS-DUB My wife and I recently used Ryanair for the first time. We’ve flown with the rival easyJet on numerous occasions but my wife was always dubious about Ryanair because of its past poor customer relations reputation. We needed to get to Dublin for an escorted rail and coach tour of the northern part of the Republic and Northern Ireland. In the past we’ve used Air Lingus Regional between Bristol and Dublin but this time we decided to give Ryanair a try. We purchased their Priority Plus package which at just under £137 in total for us both was not much more than half the Air Lingus...

As I'm interested in wildlife as well as aviation, I'm often looking out of aircraft windows when taxing to see what creatures might be about. Recently when I was watching aircraft at LPL doing the Kiev flights, I was aware how many birds were around me in the grass around the taxiway and shrubland surrounding. I saw Kestrels Blackcaps, Swallows and Whitethroat , but most exciting was quite a number Grey Partridge, a once common farmland bird which is now on the countries "red list" being in severe decline. They seem to have a little safe haven around Liverpool Airport, which was great to...

I was trolling through some old Photobucket pictures and found these which gave me an idea for a new thread. The nostalgia threads in the airport forums work well so I thought maybe it's worth a go here too.

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...
