TK....well from experience elsewhere it doesn't really affect EK that much. Istanbul operates service options that EK doesn't, or that would need a substantial backtrack. For instance into the Baltic republics and various Stans.

Turkish also have low-density 739ERs coming in which have extra fuel tanks and less seats to operate longer, thinner routes. Many of which wouldn't support EK whose smallest aircraft will soon be the A359. These are going to work on African and Asian routes with just 150 total seating.

TK also have onwards connections into India, Pakistan and places like that. So it's a substantial market to be tapped and I reckon NCL could support it.

ahhhh i see and Turkish airlines is great carrier and not just onward connections but Istanbul would be popular too! I hope sometime in the near future it prevails. Another vital destination that NCL needs is Frankfurt being the 3rd most busiest airport in Europe and a load of onward connections even a little Lufthansa regional canadair would be a start! NCL is in desperate need of big european hub airports or it will just fade and be defeated by manchester to the south and edinburgh and glasgow to the north!

TK also have a good soft product as the service and interiors are excellent.

Lufthansa shorthaul is changing at the moment with Germanwings taking on a lot of their routes.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
could germanwings do it then?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
they could but part of the historic problem was the lack of slots at Frankfurt to launch new operations so it was always a case of what brings the best returns for LH which for NCL often meant it was other destinations that were launched. With the extra runway, they may revisit it.

You may find bmi regional interested in such a route but as they are non-aligned, it's not really playing into offering the wide range of services from the Star Alliance as you'd have to book 2 tickets with no guarantees regarding connecting.

The thing confuses me is there is way more connections at frankfurt than dusseldorf but the still operate to dusseldorf rather than the 3rd biggest airport in europe?

Looks like UR-GAV (B734) brought the footballers into DTV Trotsenstein. It arrived at 11:47 from Kharkiv on 8/1/13 then left at 12:54 to Donetsk.

Quite a nice pic of it coming in too.

What is up with Newcastle? every other airport seems to be on the increase especially Leeds Bradford and East Midlands with presence on monarch at both Thomson at LBA. also EDI, MAN and MAN are on the increase so why is NCL falling so much? your opinions?

Could possibly do with a change in ownership at NCL. Bring in new proactive owners who are able to go out and fight for business.

Air Transat has pulled the route, so less likely a new US route is in the offing considering a 'low cost' format 1 weekly doesn't work.

The Ukranian 738s were UR-PSF and then 30 minutes later UR-PSD.

I've just seen the International Space Station over EGNT in does that count as an "over the top"

Anyone know the reason behind the EZY A320 go around this afternoon?

I picked that up also Trotsenstein. That and there was another easyjet A319 I believe this morning about 2.5 DME out still had their landing gear down? Tracked it on FL24.com but nothing out of the ordinary!

How the hell does bringing a bit a humour to the forum give phil1 the right to post abuse? The track of the ISS the other night was the same as an eastbound OTT so I was within my rights to connect the two.

Back on track, Gain Jet SX-RFA B752 arrived last night and is still on the ground now.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Okay, enough guys. Phil1, you need to calm down and also watch your language please. So far as I'm concerned, there was no sarcasm inherent in Runway07's post #18. You just got hold of the wrong end of the stick and over-reacted.

Does no one else think Jet2 could take up the Brussels route?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Brussels isn't a particularly attractive route unless it's for rock bottom fares or linked to onwards connections via SN into their markets. Maybe SN might take a look when their new fleet of smaller planes arrives.

I couldn't see LS being interested. It isn't an Amsterdam or Paris type short break destination.

Quote Quoting alex207, from a previous post

BM are in a funny place as they don't have the sort of alliances they used to have. Not yet anyway.

Embraers are hard to make money with too unless you have contracts and good fares in place. It's their fixed costs (pilots and all the rest of it) that are proportionally higher than anything bigger. Brussels isn't really a destination I'd see working at NCL unless it was to Charleroi on Ryanair or something like that. BRU is also an expensive airport.

NCL needs to play to its strengths. The one possibility I can see working is United to Newark on the 757, maybe 4x weekly to start, or even the new AA to Philadelphia (US Airways hub) that has always picked up plenty of connecting traffic to places like Orlando or other onwards US locations.

It's the nature of the cargo that rather precludes publicity! All we can say is that at least once per year, you see Kuwait Airlines at NCL.

Yeah the nature of the cargo wasnt allowed to be said due to security problems with recent burrels. I can tell you a few things though that secruity was all over the place and so was the police. there was only about 3 people who knew that there was an a340 1 of them being me.

Sorry, whitehatter, correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure that Kuwait Airways only have the four -313 series aircraft. On a similar note, however, I'd love to seem them use the A310, A300, or the B777 just for a change from their normal, although I suppose nothing can compare on the exciting, underpowered takeoff we always see from the A340...

I've just had a browse for it and very nice it looks indeed. It's possible but in the past it's always been the flag carrier on behalf of their government. I hope they bring th -500. In any case, we will have to keep our eyes peeled on planefinder.net for anything heading our way from over there. It had better not be on a school day! In addition, the worker also told me to expect Thomson's Boeing 787 this summer but I'm quite sure that we all already know about that, and if that's to happen, Boeing need to ull their finger out with sorting those laptop batteries! big grin

The Kuwait royals are a strange lot when it comes to their aircraft.

They have a fleet of 'state of Kuwait' aircraft, A320/A300 and a B747-400.

Despite this, they still mainly use the 'Kuwait Airways' fleet and other carriers such as BA for their flights.

As the flights into Newcastle are for the items that rhyme with 'honey', technically it could be any aircraft, A300/A340/B777/B747.

They used to be A300s in the past, I can't remember when they started using the A340s but it must have been some point after 2006. Sorry I can't be more specific. So what do the Kuwaiti Royals do with their aircraft? confused

That was a definite for NCL as it is listed as one of the initial locations, replacing a 767 on the usual runs.

We occasionally get a 744 in at MAN which is operated by the airline, but has a fold-out operating theatre built into it! The plane made a few visits for a Prince who was apparently at one of the colleges or something, to pick him up or drop him off.

Looks like there'll be 3 flights out to Lisbon next week for Newcastle's match with Benfica.

2 from Thomas Cook on behalf of Thomas Cook Sport which are both full and a Thomson Airways 8076 on behalf of Sport Options

Not sure of anymore though the club have sold around 3,000 tickets so I imagine there's a lot of connections going on!

I'm just saying as a Warning although I am not admin staff and do not claim to be, that some members on here are posting some rather sensitive information, I.E. The A343 and Thomas De La Rue. information like that shouldn't be shared and is 'supposed' to be kept a secret.

Any Tom, Dick or Harry could come on here and do god knows what with the stuff some people are posting.

Thank you for sharing your concern. However, it might have been better if you hadn't included specific reference to "Thomas de la Rue" (sic). If you expect others to be discreet, then it surely makes sense to abide by those same principles yourself? A classic case of the pot calling the kettle black, me thinks!
