    Manchester airport says the charges are "to reduce congestion" at the terminals but in all honesty, people don't have a real option to avoid the terminals if they're using them. In the BBC article it mentions the free parking is a mile away, not really a realistic option is it? The airport should just come clean and say they need the money to pay for the airports expansion. If the airlines wont pay for'll have to! #kissandpay

    A quote from PIA official Twitter account today

    “We are pleased to announce that the new livery for Pakistan Intl Airlines has been chosen! Bigger & better than ever before, something incredible is coming your way! A rigorous selection process, including focus group discussions, was followed to select the new livery design #PIA

    Look forward to seeing this design and of course hope it visits BHX real soon!

    BlueManc - at the bottom right corner of each post is a #number. Look for #249 posted on 4th March and you will see a screenshot of the airfield layout - this is what I have referred to as a diagram.

    Ok just been doing a bit of looking around, like you do on a Thursday night.

    Back in November 2017, Chamber International whom are backed by all UK Chambers of Commerce's did a simple poll vote on its twitter account asking its 5,386 followers "If @LBIAirport introduced a direct flight to #Pakistan would you use it?"
    Well the results are in. Of the 5,386 follows only 8 people took part in the vote, of them 8 votes 38% said Yes and 62% said No

    Goodness knows what the headlines will be tomorrow. The airport has said it is now closed until tomorrow. Good on them, seems like a sensible decision to me. #BeastFromTheEast #Snowmageddon

    Edinburgh Airport tweeted this earlier today:

    Travel conditions in Scotland this morning mean that the airport & airlines do not have the critical mass of staff needed to run operations securely. The airport is therefore closed until this position is reviewed at 1000 today. We ask that passengers do not come to the airport unless their airline has confirmed that their flight is scheduled. The safety of our passengers and our staff are our priority, and we ask people to make safe decisions regarding their travel. #BeastFromTheEast

    As we have a great deal of banter on the forum regarding Leeds United I figured it was time to start a thread for them.

    If Leeds United isn't your team, by all means, feel free to start a thread for your team here in our dedicated Sports Forum.

    I'm not convinced we should go with that. We've been force fed this opinion by our city elders for far too long but Yorkshire is currently losing in the region of 3/4 of it's entire air needs to Manchester. #justsaying

    We can only hope travel agents are pushing the new service and if they are it's not something which you would necessarily be aware of. Do none of the airlines use the ITV regional weather forecast to advertise at all? In this neck of the woods I think Tui and Flybe have used it to advertise new routes. Perhaps this is the kind of general advertising the Qatar service needs. #Qatar #CWL

    Superbreaks have been advertising it's new Seville flights from Leeds Bradford Airport in spectacular style with a flamenco flash mob on Briggate, the main shopping street in Leeds city centre.

    This is a great way of advertising and we've seen Jet2 and Ryanair do this in the past. Personally I think LBA should look at doing similar things to advertise itself. It only takes a few people filming it and placing it on Social Media for it to be distributed to several thousand potential customers. #Superbreaks #LBA

    (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
    good or bad luck, viewed as resulting from one's actions.
    Since January we've had a number of occasions when users have become a little carried away with their choice of words within the forums. On at least three occasions this has resulted in extensive mediation between members which has resulted in forum disciplinary action and even banning of users.

    Nothing has changed, we are the same Forums4airports that we were before Christmas. A polite and friendly forum for anybody to use whatever your interest in aviation, professionally or unprofessionally.

    I am adamant and determined Forums4airports will regain it's previously unrivalled friendliness at whatever the cost and if this means certain members will have to go then so be it.

    Wherever you are from, in whichever forum you visit within our forums, you must remain polite at all times. You are of course entitled to your opinion and I insist that posts that are made in a constructive way remain on the forum.

    If somebody posts something you object to, you may reply with a differing opinion, that's what forums are about, but you may not insult other members of the forum. If you don't like something and you can't think of something constructive to say in return then ignore it.

    I know the vast majority of users of the forum are very polite. This is usually the first thing that people comment on in conversations with me, but we do have a very small number of members who think they can hurl abuse at other members. This will not be tolerated.

    Lets not beat around the bush here. Passengers have waited a decade for the above terminal extension which was planned to greatly improve the passenger experience and it never happened. Passengers are tired of waiting and tired of listening to promises made by airport CEO's. There is a new team in place, you're right, things can't happen over night but we need to see things moving as fast as they can. Personally I would like to see thing visibly improving within two years. That's a good lead time for any infrastructure planning. I've said this before, but other airports are expanding, LBA has fallen behind as has Leeds itself which has very little building or construction taking place in comparison with neighbouring cities. #LBA #expansion #development #frustration

    Very disappointing news but lets be positive about this. We knew the airline was going to be short of aircraft from the onset.

    The airline is new to BHX and largely unknown in the UK. If the booking take-up was on the low side, it wasn't down to the airlines will to make it succeed as we know the route was publicised well throughout the city but still, Primera doesn't have the public awareness that airlines such as British Airways or American have.

    Moving on from this, like so many UK regional airports BHX will need to expand it's marketing further afield to make routes like this succeed.

    My gut feeling says this isn’t good as I have always suspected something like this would happen. But it’s still early days and perhaps it is just a glitch. Remember all the doom and gloom when the EK A380 disappeared for a while? #keepthefaith

    Fear of flying tackled by British Airways course at Manchester Airport

    WHILE most of us would agree that flying is not the highlight of any holiday, for some it can put a stop to relaxing getaways altogether.

    Read story:

    I had to chuckle when I read that. In my days working at LBA I remember a similar fear of flying course where the flight was due to operate and the wind was blowing a gale. The passengers spent a couple of hours in the departure lounge watching incoming aircraft wobbling on their approach into Leeds with some aircraft going around. I've never seen so many people leave one of these courses without actually getting on an aircraft. #fearofflying

    When we have numpties who live in Leeds who are willing to travel across the Pennines to fly from Manchester to London it's no wonder Leeds flights are being scaled back. Road and rail access to Leeds Bradford Airport will need to be greatly improved before people start to use it more for business flights. I know the journey times to Manchester by road or rail are not exactly great from this side of the Pennines but at the same time if you're stuck in traffic bumper to bumper through Kirkstall, it's not giving people the confidence to use LBA for business travel. #sayitasitis #justsaying

    Laugh Out Loud moment definitely. What a bunch of clowns they truly are at the #YEP Yorkshire Evening Post. 100% full of inaccurate rubbish. They can't even be arsed to check the LBA website for accurate information and flight details.
