What does the future hold for CWL...?

"Having thought about what the future holds for CWL, their first priority must be the return of Paris, Dublin, and Belfast, as Jerry mentioned above, Loganair have built up their services at BHD, could they be persuaded to operate a route to CWL? If Air France didn't want to operate the Paris route from CWL, perhaps Eastern could give it a try, also the Dublin route if there are no others interested. If Eastern were to base a second J41 at CWL, it would be the ideal aircraft to operate to CORK and JERSEY and perhaps build up the frequency on those routes. There is certainly a good opportunity for them to establish themselves at CWL in the future, that is of course if they are still in existence after the end of the pandemic. ".....

Travel and Airline Industry recovery from Covid-19, your views?

" I dont think people realise how serious this all is, and when the lockdown ends country by country which will take a fair time who is going to fly whilst ever this virus is about which it will be, and even when a vaccine is created the virus will be around some time plus the good old media will still be in full swing scaring us all! From what im seeing I feel believe it or not jet2 are the strongest in all this financially plus remember if this does continue where does jet2 originate from, dart group,channel express so plenty of experience in the freight sector which we most definitely require at the moment. Can anyone give anymore upto date info on jet2 financial pos?"......

The future of Virgin Atlantic, your views?

" Virgin are now doing what they should have done in the first place and are obliged to do under the governments Covid Corparate Financing Scheme. That is explore normal commercial financing options before applying to the government scheme, do that and HMG can make an informed decision. The likes of Wizz UK and Easyjet have indicated that they qualify for loans up to £300m and £600m respectively based on there credit ratings and presumably followed the correct procedure. The whole point of the government scheme is to support companies operating within the UK economy and the jobs of people within the country, under these circumstances it doesn't really matter who owns the company as so much of our economy is multi national anyway."......

Epic Failures...?

"He is preparing for the fake election, the one he postpones indefinitely just to remain the bestest president ever. Meanwhile, he obliterates Iran, invades N. Korea, sells Alaska to his mate Putin and buys Scotland to create a 51st state. Expect the unexpected with that man, entertaining and dangerous, but expect a full toothache from our own leaders, dull enough to send a person into a coma.

A runway extention for Bristol...?

"It's certainly physically possible to extend the runway at the eastern end of the airfield although any type of extension would require the A38 to be dropped into a 150-metre long tunnel, and it's likely that even the most modest option would impact in some way on Felton Common which is beyond the A38. In its current master plan, pubished in 2006, the airport set out a number of options for extending the runway, all at the eastern end of the airfield - the land beyond the western end of the runway falls away significantly and any extension there would require major civil engineering. Although the promised new master plan has not materialised despite public consultations that began two years ago the airport has already said that a runway extension is not being considered. Presumably the reasons it gave in 2006 for maintaining the status quo are still in place.".....
