Look, this 767 aint gonna happen

Guys, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating - or something like that! The SA 767 will either turn up or it won't. Further speculation at this stage is unlikely to serve any meaningful purpose and it's probably best to just wait and see what happens. One way or another, by this time next week, we should have a pretty good idea of how reliable planesilly's source of information is (or not, as the case may be).

Hello, Just some info.
I have word from a Very reliable source within the airport, she told me on Tuesday evening that in the next 2 weeks we would be getting 1 or 2 Emirates Freighters from Dubai transferring Animals of some sort, I believe they may be going to Flamingo land in Yorkshire. She didn't specify what time or day but what is known is that a definite aircraft is Said to be A6-EFF.

Re South African 767.

The following is from http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4&page=4

Boeing 767-216 23624 144 ZS-DJI Aeronexus Corp ferried 05dec12 JNB-MSE, to be EU based ex J2-KBE

There is also another 767 registered in South Africa which is ZS-IJB (c/n 23180) and belongs to Interair.

My apologies to the guy about the 767. There is one arriving tommorow
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Hello again gents, we now have a date for the 777 Skycargo, The 21st of this month will be the arrival of the first triple the arrival is between 11am and 3pm, The second date is not yet known and A6-EFF is confirmed. I am going to call her Mary as she may loose her job for telling me this, Mary is dealing with Emirates to transfer supposed Siberian Tigers to Flamingo land.
Mary won't say too much information as it's been flagged as sensitive and the aircraft may or may not come in under the radar.
thanks David.

You weren't the only one who had his doubts. I was also pretty sure that it wouldn't materialise. Full marks to planesilly and his taxi driver friend for proving us wrong!

Oh, and I'm sure that MartinJW12 would also have come forward with an apology...were it not the for the fact that he's now been banned from P-M!

The following article may be of some interest:

...although I'm not entirely sure what this particular topic has to do with NCL.

BA will most definitely be operating some SH ops with the A380 as LH and AF did. I would presume hey would be flying to somewhere like MAD due tot he fact that BA and IAG are owned by the same company and it gives the crew a good 2 hrs to get used to service. Domestic flights would be impossible to give crew the training they need on serving a full aircraft.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Shame really, NCL at an hour would have been a decent training run as it would give crews the practice at operating the aircraft quickly and efficiently. Can't see UK operations being BA's idea of a start though. My bet is FRA, MUC and possibly MAD. Paris CDG maybe for the same reasons I give above.

MAN isn't likely as there isn't a T3 compatible gate and Emirates use the T1 stand 3x a day.

Yeah, FRA and CDG have a chance, dunno about MUC though. They may even put it on longer ops such as ATH. I think I'm going to try and get a trip on one of the shorthauls, just depends how it connects with the NCL flights on a day trip

Thats what i ment a connecting flight not a a380 from NCL TO LHR.. Will have to keep an eye open...i take it the skycargo didnt come then..

Milan is now another A380 capable airport so there could be a possibility there. If you can match it up with NCL-LHR it'd be a great day trip. Or even an overnighter.

Just a quick bit of Info, A6-EGO is enroute to NCL, Nice to have such a milestone aircraft arriving here.

Newcastle could really do with some more city routes in Europe like Berlin,Budapest,Milan,Istanbul,Frankfurt etc. Instead of just new Spanish resorts! I hope when easyjet launch their winter schedule 2013/2014 they will announce some new city routes!
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
I cant see anything major happening at NCL this year. Any new routes I think will come from the likes of Jet2/EasyJet/Flybe etc.

I would like to see Thomson bring in a 787, even just for a crew training flight like Virgin did with the A330 a few years back. That will be as good as it gets I think.

I hope it dose but easyjet need to stop starting routes that other carriers operate and need to experiment!

BAW563 Diversion from Milan

Quote Quoting G-7RGQ, from a previous post

BAW563 Diversion from Milan


It's a diversion from LHR (but ex-Milan) G-EUYI A320

Looking at the forecast down South I wonder if there is anything else heading this way?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Thinking about the logistics of the above post I would love to know what the procedures are behind a short-haul flight being diverted 300 miles beyond its destination? I could understand a flight coming across the Atlantic or from say Scandinavia dropping down into an en-route airport. Looking at FLR24 now things do seem to be moving in/out LHR despite the current London conditions hence the wondering about the LIN-LHR flight being in NCL?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Generally the airline will arrange forward surface transport using coaches. Crews tend to travel separately. If they can arrange a later slot into the destination then they will splash and dash onwards, but if they need to terminate then a coach firm will take the punters to Heathrow and the airline will arrange for the plane to be positioned back when possible.

It all depends on what is happening at Heathrow. All sorts of things can be arranged depending on what the situation is. The crew can also be overnighted and fly the plane back if that is part of the arrangements, but for a domestic airline they might just arrange for the crew to get home and then send up a positioning crew on a shuttle.

The airlines have specialists to deal with that sort of thing, and handling agents for the passengers will get them to their destination one way or another. It isn't cheap either as arranging a couple of coaches at practically zero notice is generally at a high price to the airline.

Thanks for that insight whitehatter, it does make sense what you say. As the LHR-NCL flight was not running this evening I guess there is now an aircraft on the ground for NCL-LHR on a Monday morning?

Appears that it left for LHR this morning ( 10.25 ) empty, using it's Registration as part call sign Speedbird5UYI ( G-EUYI ) and not Shuttle13?

again it's a case of it depends. You need to have crews available to work a flight, including cabin crews. That aircraft can have all sorts of arrangements made for it, including (for instance) having it made ready to immediately re-enter service at LHR or even positioning it out to Europe to somewhere it's needed. A crew would go up early on via ground or shuttle to move it if the previous night's crew had been transported home.

Airlines use a lot of taxis on contract in conditions like this. The big headache is not so much aircraft as crews, and having people in the right place to get the service running again.

Sperwer money well burnt lol. I watched on flightradar24. KL first after a fair time circiling.

Any reason to KL's random equipment change from -700 to -800 on flight 971?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
KL have been getting walloped this past week by snoclo all over the place, flow restrictions at major airports and Amsterdam itself suffering snowfall. It does mean a lot of equipment gets swapped around as planes are out of place, and there might have been extra people on the flight from delays and cancellations.

I would bet it was full as well.

What you need to think about is why an airline would launch a "thin" route in the winter season when there is less demand, and any news like this would be broken by airlineroute.com in much the same way they revealed the Egyptair to MAN route.

For those who havent been, had a look at the spot along the public footpath at the 07 end and what a cracking place it is. Very quiet and a great overview of the airport. Only downside is its a bit of a hike from the car.

Traffic wise, we had an RAF 146 on circuits yesterday and Transavia 737 operating the KLM route today



Few pics here
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Lovely pictures Trotsenstein, I agree that the 07 footpath is a great vantage point and only just found it during Summer 2012 thanks to a bit of advice on here.

I've been up there a few times but never when 07 has been in action, only take-offs from 25.

we also had a Bulgaria air operating the Balkan holidays flight form Sofia which when back to Sofia via Edinburgh

I was up there early on a Sunday a few weeks back hoping 07 would be in use for arrivals. Got some video of departures on 25 from that point but no pics yet. Waiting till the snow clears.

Just continue in this thread until it gets to the 100 post mark, then a new thread will be proceed. The NCL forum on the whole is quiet, so one thread seems to be sufficient at this time. Any specific questions you'd like to ask, ask away, it's an open thread.

I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't high up the list, TK could offer service on something as compact as an A319 for openers. You couldn't put Istanbul anywhere better on the map for a hub, with onwards connections ranging from Africa to Israel and China. Good for Asians going to India and Pakistan too.

TK also supports the holiday trade to a degree. I can see Newcastle being as attractive as Belfast and places like that to Turkish, so let's wait and see. it would fit with their strategy.
