FAO already cancelled!
If the schedule is more than 90 mins behind, it means crew are out of hours so for the 3rd time this month, FAO has had to be cancelled because of crew being out of hours!

Very poor in my opinion, and probally the reason why FAO is getting moved to the 06:00 slot from a July onwards so the crew can do FAO alone; then the next do ALC-PMI which is a smaller block time compared to ALC-FAO due to it being slightly smaller flying time!
Is ALC and PMI achievable with one set of crew? I always thought it was too long a day to do both

I believe that one crew has been doing ALC; then the other set of crew are doing PMI-FAO!

Obviously that allows minimal wiggle room if the aircraft is delayed, 1.5 hours I think and after that they are out of hours

If crew do FAO alone, then ALC-PMI, you are saving maybe an hour in flying time giving that extra hour more wiggle room
If any delays occur which seems to be a regular occurrence!

That’s my observation on why FAO is being moved to the 6am slot!

Block times for PMI and ALC in July are 12.50-18.05 for PMI then 18.40-00.10 for Alicante. That's a 12 hour shift roughly for 1 crew.

CFU-CWL has just diverted to BRS (GWUKI) due to an apparent incident at CWL?

I don’t have anymore details…

Apparently the runway is closed due to a light aircraft accident. Hopefully everyone is OK.

Seems the runway is open as normal now.

GWUKI due to return from BRS in due course.
Spoke too soon. Not sure what’s happened but the aircraft is still at BRS - and subsequently the LCA has been cancelled…

No doubt the ground handling issues at BRS haven’t helped as a diverted aircraft wouldn’t be any priority for them.

SP-RZK is a B737 8-200 MAX

In a turn of events, tonights TOM6659 LPA-CWL has diverted to BRS.
