    Delayed?

    Sorry im not to sure about this but a flight from Manchester into Derry/Londonderry is on the arrivals on their airport website. It says "indefinatley delayed due to slot restrictions"
    What does it mean by slot restrictions?


    Thanks,
    Dan

          Off topic but It's not worth starting a new thread for it. Weird flights showing up on CWL departures board. BA4101 to Frankfurt and RE432 to ORK both saying Go To Departures. I thought of the BA flight could have come from the BA Maintenance hanger but why would it say go to departures? And I don't even know who RE are. Anyone know?

            RE are Aer Arran.

            Still a lot of Liverpool bound flights delayed today, according to some it has been the worst fog seen in the Liverpool Airport vicinity for quite some time.

              I would imagine they would be from BRS? Like yesterday when some of the MAN bound flights came into LBA, they departed again from LBA, would imagine they bussed the pax from MAN.

              Flex - LPL has really suffered, all flights were cancelled last night!

                I'm not sure why these flights are leaving CWL, I presume that they are the aircraft that have diverted from BRS. On the BRS website it says that the RE flight is delayed and the BA "NEXT INFORMATION 1545".

                BTW RE are Aer Arran

                  Well it was really foggy. But its starting to clear. Also Ryanair 613 i think was delayed out last night too. Not sure what the weather was like but it was delayed for a good 2 hours

                            If you mean the aircraft from MAN,
                            SF34.
                            Google can answer lots of questions, ever tried it?

                              Yea it should have been a Saab 340. Most of the Loganair/BA flights out of Derry are Saab 340's with sometimes a F50

                                There was a RE flight from SNN on the arrival board on MAN's site today. Weird!

                                  BRS

                                  On Points West earlier this evening, they had a report on the fog and how it is affecting the flights at Bristol. Many more flights have been delayed or cancelled due to the visibility. They mentioned that some people were told to simply go home, and some others were taken to LHR to catch different flights there. Also, due to BRS being the only arport in the South West and South Wales with a landing system that enables pilots to land whatever the weather conditions (sorry forgoten what its called), BRS has also seen a couple of diversions from CWL. There is a brief report here on BBC Bristol -

                                  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/4458804.stm

                                  I also saw the weather forcast earlier, and it doesn't look very good for Bristol, Birmingham or the London Airports.

                                      Some fog still lingering round CWL tonight but all flights are running as normal.
