BBC Look North tonight

Some interesting footage was used on this evening's programme to accompany the good news regarding minimal delays at LBA compared to most other UK airports.

The footage shows a KLM B737-800 PH-BCB arriving on Runway 32. According to the BH records, this happened on 16 December 2011 when KLM1073 became a Manchester diversion.

Oh well, it saves sending a camera crew up the road to capture up to date images!

Oops. The sun has affected my posting!! This aircraft did make a first visit over 6 years ago, but it made another visit more recently, on 23 February 2017, operating KLM895 Amsterdam to Manchester. Apologies for the error.

That must have been taken the same day as the Transdev promotional apron shot for the new 62 bus to Keighley. That had 2 Sunwings on the ground as well.

Malaga schedule time of departure 1115 now has slot of 1620 local
Arrecife schedule time of departure 1200 now has slot of 1510 local

Plus their teatime flight to Alicante has been cancelled

We were caught up in this at FUE yesterday..as we were last September waiting for a flight to Stansted..Lazy sods.But after that debacle we abandoned plans to visit France this year. Back to yesterday the inbound was 90 mins late but Jet2 did a great job in turning the aircraft round and with the help of a good tail wind we were just under an hour late back into Leeds..

twev - is there any news out there about possible further strikes as I seem to get caught up in French ATC action every blooming year. I'm off to Greece next Tuesday.
You shouldn’t be affected flying East. Your routing shouldn’t take you anywhere near the airspace in question, which is the Marseille area control.

I realise that the Greece routing doesn't go anywhere near the French airspace. However, as our outbound flight is late afternoon any problems caused by the French earlier would/could impact on earlier UK flights, which would have a knock on effect as would other flights seeking to file an alternative route to the French airspace they were originally routed through.

Pleased to hear though that nothing seems to be planned so fingers etc crossed.

So where is this terminal extension going to be? Where the short stay car parks are now? I wonder how far down the apron it will go down? Massive improvements for the airport when this happens.

Interesting interview that. The guy sounds like he means business and very determined to make a success of it. Hope he can back up his words and deliver.
