That was in October 2007, I watched the first flight to leave SYD.

These are the next to go......not massive news but obvious.

And yet so many folk continue to ask about Jet2 operating long haul to the USA or other long haul destinations. So many airlines that did, don't exist any more.

Go figure!

People have been saying that about Norwegian for a long time yet they seem to still be here! I have a feeling they will still be around for a while yet!
Unlikely. They keep cutting back and keep mortgaging more and more assets to service the debt. They are also committed to quite a few ordered aircraft coming in the next few years. A downturn and/or rising fuel prices will accelerate the process.

I hope the airline survives, although I have doubts, as my son and his Norwegian partner are expecting their first child in May, the Norwegian Airlines, Manchester to Bergen direct route gets a lot of use already.
Grandparents use the LBA via AMS to Bergen, any thoughts of using MAN were destroyed last year when I got fined £25 for too long in the new drop off car park, we had a pram and wheel chair to get out and needed a curb drop, even showing our blue badges and sending a copy in our letter of complaint, the fine stood.
We used to do LBA-LHR-Bergen but the route dropped in 2017, cant see it coming back as its prices far higher then Norwegian brought to the party, although if the cheap offer goes, who knows.

hi all
just been looking at the easy jet holidays site nothing from LBA.
sm
Just priced up a 5 night stay in Madrid at our favourite hotel, on easyjet site, hotel price quoted, cost slightly more then double the rack rate quoted over the phone by the hotel, as I was on the web site, got another 20% off as a regular, plus breakfast. Told the girl what easyjet wanted and she just laughed.
Just received hotel email confirming booking at the agreed price, flexi price as well, can cancel up to 24 hours before with no charge
Always book direct with the hotel, have never in last 3 years found an internet price cheaper, even if just a room upgrade or free breakfast.

So the mighty Whites are drawn away at some bunch of Premiership no-hopers in the FA Cup. I wonder if we might get quite a few charter flights down to Stansted as a result?
