Love it or hate it, the UK is currently planning on leaving the European Union
The UK has left the European Union. Growing apart doesn't change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I'm glad for that.

Brexit
  • 11,994
  • 375
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.

Flybe LBA-DUS

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...
Concorde & the future of supersonic passenger travel
  • 520
  • 15
I think a lot of people, including many not normally interested in aviation, would like to see a Concorde fly again. I'm not concerned which Concorde took to the air but I suspect the more time goes by the less likely it is, and there didn't seem too much chance once the decision had been taken to ground the French and British fleets permanently. It was generally believed that the most likely candidate would be G-BOAF, the last Concorde to be built in Britain and the last Concorde ever to fly - so far!! AF returned to her place of birth at Filton but then spent seven years in the open...

Returning to BHX from Malta with Avion Express on behalf Thomas Cook

"We have just returned from Malta after flights on Avion Express leased in A320 for Thomas Cook, the aircraft and flight were fine and branded as Cooks with the cabin Crew all Thomas Cook staff not sure about the flight crew though as outbound the pilot had a heavy East European accent and inbound spoke in a cut glass English.Arriving at BHX check in was fine and there were P&O staff at the desk to assist those passengers like us who were on a cruise I estimate more than 50% of the passenger were crusers (more of that later). Security was fine and we "......

Leeds Bradford Pakistan International Airlines Boeing 777 ops....?

"Talk of PIA bringing 777s into LBA was first mooted way back when the airline was operating into LBA with the A310s. The local PIA base manager at the time sited space in the terminal as being the main reason for the delay in bringing the aircraft into Leeds. The arrivals meet and greet was their main bone of contention as was the possibility having to park the aircraft on a remote stand. Two issues which were more of an obstacle than actually getting the aircraft on the ground.".....

Ryanair "locks-in grandfather slots" at Manchester

"Airlines routinely take the opportunity to lock-in and 'grandfather' attractively-timed slots at congested airports as the opportunity arises to secure them. I suspect that is the dynamic at work here. Ryanair had twelve units based at MAN for S2019 season. Why surrender those slots? MAG's operations at both STN and MAN are subject to this consideration, but EMA is not. And there are rumours that the EMA base will be reduced in size. I would suggest that we are seeing Ryanair securing its foothold at the more congested airports to protect future profitability. I don't think there is an element of corporate favouritism going on, though it is certainly a positive thing that MAG and Ryanair do maintain a good working relationship.The real driver of Ryanair's network cutbacks is the continuing issue arising from non-delivery of the Boeing 737-MAX8 order. Carriers plan deployment of new fleet additions months - even years - in advance. As each date passes when another unit should"......

Ryanair hits the breaks on expansion from Leeds Bradford

"We do have some idea from last years AGM where Ryanair is heading. MOL advised far to many seats on too many routes in Europe, even though carriers closing such as Monarch, around 6 airlines must fold to reduce capicity, seat numbers far greater then the number of passengers there to fill. Ryanair needed to reduce seat numbers by at least 5 million per year, meaning a reduction of 10% and would result in a similar number of base closures. Earning per seat were not been covered by revenue, every seat sold at a loss, only additional revenue, seat allocation etc saving the day.The last year had seen wages grow as the unions imposed there power on the company and fuel prices rose, MOL hoped Thomas Cook and Flybe would close to help the situation, both have not happened and his failure to buy Air berlin has been a financial nightmare in Germany, losing £150M alone in the last 12 months."......

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"......

Why the SID delays at Manchester Airport?

"So here the answer from a man that knows: There has always been an issue with certain SID’s from 23L/R conflicting with Liverpool 27 arrivals and this historically has been resolved on a tactical basis. However, as in any safety culture, ideas change and develop and “sorting it out once they are airborne” is now no longer considered a suitable mitigation.So basically the radar video map now has two new chunks of airspace marked out, one to north and one to the south of the Liverpool 27 centreline, during which time any Liverpool 27 arrivals are in that airspace, Manchester can only depart traffic on LISTO SID’s. Bit of overkill? I couldn’t possibly comment.".....

Review: Travelling to Lisbon with Easyjet from Bristol

"Left my house around 10:00 in the morning in Cardiff for the flight at 13:45 to Lisbon , arrived in about an hour and 10 mins which I thought was pretty decent going , this time instead of choosing the long stay parking , we opted for the the multi story car park and I have to say it is superb , very easy to navigate you to the car park and a very easy system once there , we booked in advance , however you can drive up to the gate and pay on your return if"......
