That's a lot of crap to be dealing with, fozza Sad

On a more petty note, this Max x66 is 15 minutes late and someone on it smells of puke. Glad I've already had some lunch

ThT I can't argue with. They look odd, have windows that are tricky to open, cantilever seats (hated by long legged big'un), rock when idling and throw you around everwhere when moving but they're flippin' brilliant!!

And a fab driver shouting out details of the aircraft that people are out photographing Big Grin

I suspect that if he wasn't working, he'd have been taking pics of his own.

I've been waiting half an hour for this X25, and still no show.

Thanks Go North East.

Disgrace.

You do not know why the service has not turned up.  The amount of times we do not operate due to it not being our fault is pretty high (roadworks, waiting for emergency services, accidents).

Bearing in mind Newcastle was at a standstill earlier, I think we have done a pretty good job today trying to maintain a service.

I should imagine that many services going in and out of Newcastle are still pretty messed up.

I have just been informed by the driver of the 28 that the X25 has broke down. Sorry Go North East but you's could have sent a replacement instead of keeping me standing here for an hour until the next one turns up!!!!!

Never been so frustrated in my life.

And then when I ask the 28 driver if he knows whether a replacement will be send he said "Well I diven't na I'm sitting here aren't I"

You could have just said "I'm not sure, sorry"

Sending out a replacement takes time. It isn't a case of shoving a bus onto a catapult and letting it fly to where it is that it will be replacing.

Well if Arriva operated it, it might actually run to time. Because right now, it generally doesn't.

A but like the 82. Strangely when ran by Arriva it runs bang on time, but when ran by Go North East, it turns up whenever it wants!!!!

Not sure if this comes as any surprise to you but no operator is immune to vehicle breakdown

Yet posting in the 'What's Annoying You' thread is going to help the situation?

Yes because it is somewhere I can release my anger. Because if I post it anywhere else I will just get told to f*ck off

Weirdly, aside from the exceptions of the Q3 and 74 I have a different opinion, GNE being punctual and ARRIVA being late Angel

I have never seen the 82 ran by Arriva late this week.

I seen the 82 ran late by Go North East 6 times today.

Except Arrivas 82 runs at night when there is less traffic and passengers, whereas GNE runs it during the day where there's more chance of disruption.
