Looks nice. I'm flying with Thomson's in about 2 weeks - so chances are I might get it

757 supposedly allocated to my flight with Thomson.
Was on one a few years ago to Dalaman with Thomas Cook and hated the aircraft.

It has been talked about elsewhere in the forum - but it has just been announced that United are flying direct from Newcastle - New York come next year.

Details of how Newcastle - New York actually happened.

It appears Lord Adonis had a role to play.

Just a quick question. Where's a good place to stand at Newcastle Airport if you're waving people onto a plane, now that the big outside viewing balcony has gone? (Just goes to show how long it's been since I was last at the airport)
You could try the freight area along the side. There is the pub, helicopter take off area and flying clubs all along there too.

Sorry, just saw your post now, Andreos. It doesn't matter now, but thank you Smile I probbably should have checked the forum before leaving
I always went to the emergency exit gates and put the camera through the bit where the locks are to take pictures of the planes... Seen loads of people do it...

I'm a bit surprised that FlyBe didn't want to try LCY, especially with their expansion there. Obviously the BA shuttles are great for connecting traffic (what I use them for), but I am sure a lot of people use them for O&D flights. You would think there would possibly be the demand for an early morning/late evening Dash 8 run to LCY... I suppose slot restrictions and noise constraints at LCY are tight. 
Don't know if anyone has tried the shot from the landing runway (from the coast) on the main road just before the runway, if that makes sense? I think the Arriva 44 stops near there and I was wanting to give it a go...

The NexusBus 353 stops there too, although it only seems a 15-25 minute walk from Kingston Park Metro.

There's a photo in my photostream taken from the emergency exit gates if that's the place you're on about.
