Ryanair: Bristol-Dublin-Bristol
  • 1,105
  • 11
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...
Wildlife at airports
  • 1,002

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...

City of Leeds Nostalgia - Thread
  • 1,109

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. This is known as Granary Wharfe and it was taken at Leeds City Station back in about 2007 just after the worldwide recession kicked in. GranWharfe1 by Aviador posted Nov 9, 2017 at 11:26 AM This is Broadcasting Place in the heart of the Leeds student district. The building was finished with iron clad Broadcasting Place - Leeds by Aviador posted Nov 9, 2017 at 11:26 AM Leeds' tallest...

What is your favourite aircraft type and why? Is it aesthetics/sound/size/comfort etc.? Please choose up to three aircraft type in the poll and then explain why? If the one you want isn't in the poll, just say in the comments section. Hopefully we can get some good discussion. I will be doing mine later on.
Which is the smallest airport you have flown from?
  • 263
  • 15
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...

Easyjet rumours from Bristol...?

"I will be very surprised if something is not announced in the next couple of weeks or so. Seems a bit daft to buy slots if you're not going to use them. I don't know how much BRS slots would have cost as they are only scarce in the 2300-0700 period in summer, or if easyJet would be expected to give them up if they don't use them. The report in the local paper a week or so ago contained strong hints from easyJet that something was in the offing. The linked report mentions easyJet's belief that more people want holidays outside the 'traditional' seven or 14-day periods. TUI said much the same thing with its announced summer 2020 programme from a number of airports where some sun routes have been given additional flights on other days of the week to provide a more flexible product for customers.".....

Easyjet profits down

Easyjet profits down...

"Todays full years results from Easyjet show profits down 26% year on year, accept in line with city forecasts but not good and camouflaged by the Holiday company news. No mention of German losses, but blame Brexit. If I remember Monarch placed an order for new airlines, in July 2018, Condor looking to buy new wide body aircraft. Buying new aircraft not a sign of financial strength. This is an extract from a briefing note I have received today on Easyjet 2019 figures, not sure I am allowed to publish in full "we don't think the group is out of the woods yet". The report question nearly every future prediction the company made in their report and lets say the report is cautious on the hopes for the new travel business.".....

Cardiff Qatar Doha stats breakdown...

"In what was a relatively easy exercise thanks to Jerry's monthly breakdowns in the CAA stats thread, I thought I'd have a quick add up and see what the rolling total for the past year has been on the Doha route. Just out of curiosity.
Nov 2018 - 5221
Dec 2018 - 6449
Jan 2019 - 6641
Feb 2019 - 5435
March 2019 - 6106
April 2019 - 7884
May 2019 - 4997
June 2019 - 6077
July 2019 - 10558
August 2019 - 11714
September 2019 - 9030
October 2019 - 7387
That would give a rolling year total on the route to the end of October of 87,472. Hopefully by the two year anniversary of the route we will be looking at a total comfortably into the 90's. It's strange how poorly May has performed for both years it has been in operation.".....

Bristol Airport expansion delayed

"North Somerset Council's planning committee won't now hold a hearing into the airport's current expansion plan application until next year, but no date has yet been set. The application was submiited last December. Given the make-up of the elected membership of the council it seems highly likely that they will reject the application which could then lead to an airport appeal to the planning Inspectorate. It that course of action was taken it might be 18 months from now at the earliest before a planning inspector made a final decision. Not a good prospect for the airport if someone like Jet 2 was looking to base a number of aircraft there from 2021 as almost certainly that would take the annual passenger numbers close to or through the 10 mppa current planning limit."......

Some LBA and regional statistical comparisons

"Hello - thanks for the welcome the other day. As I promised, here are some data insights into the performance of LBA and UK airports more generally that might be of interest. The main challenge being posed by some observers seemed to fit into "has LBA underperformed since it was privatised?". LBA was taken into private ownership in April 2007. Passenger numbers in the calendar year 2006 therefore seems a reasonable starting point for the comparison. In 2006 LBA handled 2,787,217 passengers. It's latest annual rolling total is 4,048,678 (to July 19). Growth of 45.3%. UK airports in total have grown by 26.3% over the same period, so LBA has done significantly better than the UK as a whole. Another comparison could be against similar sized airports in 2006. There were 12 airports in the 2M - 6M passengers per annum category in 2006. In the table below they are ranked by their size in 2006."......
