    Route Development

    Well I suppose we should be thankful it has been retained. Lakes and Mountains routes in the summer are fickle and even at MAN they have seen reductions. SZG as an example has seen Tui using Flybe instead of their own equipment.

    What services you are using?

    Off to Altea for a few days so shall be sampling the delights of Jet2 again on Monday’s ALC. Hoping for a nice new aircraft, but they’re all probably down at STN and BHX ;-)

    Route Development

    Has any one heard owt regarding the rumoured new carrier/routes? All seems very quiet. I’m still hoping something may come of it all to raise spirits and passenger numbers.

    New Arrivals Terminal For LBA

    Is the build time just 6 months? Start Spring and complete in Autumn will be impressive if achieved. I hope that’s not correct quick123 as it would be very short sighted and would cost more in the long run.

    TUi Airlines UK

    “ So for God's sake let's leave this damn TUI thing alone now please” that comment does suggest that you want the debate to cease Finger66, but I appreciate your comments above that Tui’s departure is others potential gain. Perhaps when we get some rationale from the airport committee we will...

    The loss of Tui has made people think why it may have happened, it highlights the many limitations of the reality of LBA. Equally 4 million a year is a great achievement that should very much be acknowledged. However, to suggest the topic should be dropped because it is negative, or not what...

    TUi Airlines UK

    AMP will no doubt be thinking of shareholders as well as passengers, and shareholders normally come first with those considerations. Investment cost vs return on investment will always out weigh the physical benefit of the investment. So, if it’s cost effective and they’ll make some dollar on...

    I never really appreciated how short the landing distance was- 1524m! no wonder it sometimes feels like smacking an aircraft carrier ;-). Seriously though they need to sort the displaced threshold if nowt else.

    “The ever growing STN base will take over our 2nd place whilst MAN remains the biggest base for now”. Seasider, I was referencing that Part of the quote for the MAG airport I am aware BHX is not owned by them.

    They are also both MAG airports so maybe incentivised to expand. Still growing at LBA but a little disappointing that we have the lowest growth of all airports. Hopefully this will be corrected once the new development is completed.

    Ryanair

    I can honestly say the worst landing I have ever had was a heavy landing in dense fog at LBA, and you could smell the landing and we’re not talking the brakes!

    Route Development

    Lol Seasider I didn’t realise I was doing GCSE maths on here. The point is there would be less seats spare on an A319 rather than A320. Personally I’m comfortable with your vigilance and pedantic approach to posts, as long as it’s done consistent and irrespective of poster. I suspect you may be...

    Something to consider is 70 percent capacity of the monarch a320 is about the same as an easy a319 which would be much better suited to short business/leisure mix.

    Route Development

    Things can change and Easyjet are big at Luton and a key airline at Newcastle both part owned by AMP who own LBA, so group management may look to get the orange brigade here at Leeds Bradford and they would be a fantastic addition if it happened :-)

    Seasider Porto Santo is a full length runway 3000 metres - the refuel could be to do with aviation fuel price in Faro being more competitive?
