    No not at all, they don't operate a fracture railway system in Norway like the UK, hence it works !

Memories of Airlines No Longer Flying
  • 1,379

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...

I compiled a timetable...
The future of Domestic UK air travel
  • 2,078
  • 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...

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...

Primarily a Friday and Saturday night thread for people to discuss their favourite tipples. Their latest Gin or Whisky collection or maybe the local ale.
Global Warming or Global Cooling?

What are your thoughts on climate change? For the last two decades at lest we have been spoon fed a global warming agenda, "the Earth is burning up", our "use of fossil fuels is causing Co2 to spiral out of control". More recently the IPCC lead by the United Nations released a report saying we have to take immediate action to save the planet from catastrophe. During the 90's I went along with this narrative. As a person who has always been interested in weather and the climate I have always followed the subject with much interest and like most people I went along with the idea that man...
Brexit
  • 7,159

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.

What the hell is Prince Phillip doing at the age of 98 driving a range rover. ;-(
oldendays wrote on a300boy's profile.
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 ??
