2 Easyjet flights cancelled today Friday the 11th.
U2 3362 outbound to Venice and the inbound from Venice U2 3361 both cancelled.
U2 6190 outbound toPisa and the inbound from Pisa U2 6189 both cancelled.
It wonders if bad weather all round Europe has some thing to do with these flights cancelled. I saw on the news yesterday they had heavy snow and tempertures in Greece down to minus 23.

Third party strikes like ATC means no EU compensation rights.

Airline wont refund your ticket, saves fuel costs on the flights and is a winner. Passenger loses everything including hotel bookings and has to fight with their insurers for compensation.

Modern day travel can be stressful.

A Flybe DH8D diverted into BRS last night just before midnight operating a DUS-SOU schedule. The late running of the flight would have meant SOU would have closed before its arrival. It's due to position back to SOU at 1625 this afternoon.

I presume this will use a tiny bit of BRS's own night time quota, albeit the winter is usually under-used from stats on the airport's website, hence the airport's application to spread its quota across the year rather than have specific limits for summer (over-used at times) and winter (under-used), albeit part of one season's quota can be moved to the next season but I think from memory that it's only 10%.

Substantial snow is forecast for the West Country this afternoon and evening. Mind you, snow was forecast for Tuesday of this week too but didn't turn up - thank goodness. Looking at the weather radar site, it does seem that a lot of precipitation is on its way at the moment.

Forecasters suggest that initally it will be rain/sleet before turning into snow. BRS might find itself with some problems later today if the forecast is correct.

There was supposed to be heavier snow by now quite widely in the SW and South but it's mainly light snow or sleet at most airports. They have been giving a tempo of -SN for LHR for the last 2 hours. Still waiting. Mind you, they were giving a tempo for MAN of 300m in FZFG for over 3 hours this morning and fortunately it didn't materialise.
The amber warning form the Met Office this morning forecast heavy snow this afternoon and evening. At best, they have their timing wrong which isn't unusual.

Started in south-east Brisotl around 2015 - several hours later than forecast. Still 15 commercial flights due in this evening. Remains to be seen whether they will all make it into BRS.

BM DUS off to CWL by the looks of it. Current weather forecast has snow at CWL and BRS, and light snow at LHR. EXT appears to be operational at the moment too.
A few flights due in shortly. EZY GVA is closest but seems to be staying at 22,000 ft passing Swindon

If all nine outstanding easyJet flights can't get in there might be some head scratching tomorrow morning. BM too might have three out of place. Ironically, the TUI from Hurghada that diverted to Munich on the outbound because of a technical issue is not now scheduled to arrive back until 0330, four and a half hours late. He might be lucky and get in if the snow stops and can be cleared.

Visibility has dropped at BRS too. 300m. Aircraft holding south of Torquay and in the Valleys. They must think they might be able to reopen if decisions aren't being made to divert straight away.
