Memories of Airlines No Longer Flying
  • 1,028

I loved seeing the BKS and Northeast Tridents, both airlines being effectively based at LBA, although the Tridents never came here due to our rather short runway in those days. It is quite sad really to see all those airlines that have come and gone, and that list is only scratching the surface. There have been hundreds of airlines over the years that have disappeared, and just the list that have operated to Leeds and disappeared since, would be very long. The VC10 was a fantastic aircraft and it was such as shame it was eclipsed in popularity by the 707, although that itself was also a...

The future of Domestic UK air travel
  • 1,704
  • 38
What is the future for UK domestic air travel ? We are not a big country and yet getting around by any form of transportation can prove taxing to say the least ! Our roads are clogged ( don't even mention pot-holes ! ) . Train travel , in my opinion its worse since BR days , more expensive , more packed with shorter trains. It's ok to and from the capital in general for most big towns and cities, but cross country, that's very different, with still scant investment, outside London and SE for getting around. And what of domestic air routes, over the years these seemed to have diminished...

September traffic grows by 12.8 per cent to reach 706,814 passenger movements More than 27,000 passenger movements recorded on the month’s busiest day September closes off third quarter with more than 2.2 million passenger movements With 706,814 passenger movements recorded, September was yet another busy month in what is proving to be a record-setting summer for Malta International Airport. September was, in fact, the third consecutive month during which more than 700,000 passengers were welcomed by the airport team. September’s traffic brought peak holiday season to a close with more...
FLYBE issues profit warning

  • 57
Profit Warning Flybe's woes continue with the company issuing a full-year profit warning this morning in a trading update ahead of its results for the first six months of 2018. A full-year tax loss of £12 million is now anticipated which follows a £19.2 million loss in 2017. Flybe attributes the situation to higher fuel prices, the lower value of sterling and weaker customer demand. The airline is reviewing further capacity and cost-saving measures along with its current strategy which sees it concentrating on its most popular routes. This has seen passenger seat revenue increase by...

So I returned on Thursday (15th) from once again a lovely week away in Gran Canaria using BHX for the second time, and once again it was a very enjoyable visit We departed Cardiff at around 03:30 and arrived at BHX shortly after 05:30, We paid the £2 to drop off outside the terminal and it was a very quick and efficient process, We approached the TUI bag drop area, which was very quiet , A friendly greeting arrived and we were asked if we had used the self service bag drop before, indeed we had so we proceeded to scan the boarding pass and place the bags on the scale to weigh and print...

True, TCX has seen better days but their LBA offering was already on its arse so there's no excuse to have lost what little was left. At least Bill Savage secured a base from the then Airtours, and Britannia/Thomson. Now all lost. Meeson must be laughing. I really don't understand how Jet2 - a relative newcomer - seem to be able to get it right and the elder statesmen can only cut and run. Backhanders, maybe ?
oldendays wrote on a300boy's profile.
Is it just me, or has LBA achieved nothing since David Outlaws and his gang have been in charge ? Terminal improvements aside, which are a legacy of the previous management, the airport just keeps on losing business. If I was AMP, I would be putting the genial Geordie on notice just now.
Is anybody feeling christmassy yet ? Im not ;-( Maybe some mulled wine will help with proceedings ??
10th anniversary of mum's death and my near miss. Gone but never forgotten,
