Monday 26th July 2010 is Newcastle (NCL) Airports 75th Birthday. To help celebrate, operators are being asked to lay on 'unusual' aircraft on this day.

Already confirmed are:

BAW1326/7 (LHR-LHR) ETA1110 ETD1230 B747-400

UAE35/6 (DXB-DXB) ETA1205 ETD1335 B777-300ER

KLM957/8 (AMS-AMS) ETA1035 ETD1305 B737-800 (Probable retro-schemed PH-BXA)

I'm thinking of getting BA1326 from LHR, first time I'll have been on a 747.

For those interested, a single ticket on 1327 (NCL-LHR) is £31 all inc.

A trip involving 1326 and 1327 is NOT possible - BA does not allow you to book it.....
(I suppose you could try to get round that with 2 singles......)

Aye, but you'll not get off, through security, then back through security in time to catch the return, especially with a few charters and the EK 77W passengers going through at the same time.

NCL-LHR seems to be £31 on the lump, but LHR-NCL is £52?

Would have thought a round trip LHR/NCL/LHR do-able using OLCI ??

ooops... sorry... "OLCI" = 'on line check in" - am thinking that if you already have both boarding passes you may be able to work it as a round trip...

we do love our shorthand on Planet-Travel

Correct, BA.com still shows £31 for NCL to LHR as of 2 mins ago (prior to posting this)

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Seriously? £30,50 for a flight on a B747 from NCL to LHR? Are you sure the flight isn't operated by EasyJet or Ryanair, and you'll have to get a bus from MAN or something...?

Hope to make it to NCL for the 26th, though I'm already planning on going there on the 25th for the Airshow. Pity the viewing deck at the terminal isn't there anymore. Would have been filled to capacity that weekend.

For the event, but there is supposed to be something permanent being set up, in a similar manner to the MAN RVA

Sounds good. Would be nice if it was fairly easilly accessable, so you wouldn't have to walk around half the airport to get there, like MAN...

On shorthaul flights the booking system will only book same day return flights if there is more than 120 mins between the arrival time of the inbound flight and the departure time of the outbound flights.

Minimum DOM to DOM connections times are not valid if the connection is back to originating airport. DOM to DOM would only apply if you were for instance travelling LHR to ABZ via NCL.

Just booked myself on that flight at only £30.50

Quoting gkirk (Reply 4):
NCL-LHR seems to be £31 on the lump, but LHR-NCL is £52?

Below is a breakdown of the each one way fare based on info from BA.com at 11:20 on 4th July 2010.

BA1326 LHR/NCL on 26th July

£15.00 + £46.70 (Taxes, Fees and Charges) = £61.70

Breakdown of Taxes, Fees and Charges

£11.00 - Air Passenger Duty
£ 2.50 - Security Surcharge
£13.40 - LHR Passenger Service Charge (PSC)
£ 7.80 - NCL Passenger Service Charge (PSC)
£12.00 - Fuel Surcharge

BA1327 NCL/LHR on 26th July

£5.00 + £25.50 (Taxes, Fees and Charges) = £30.50

Breakdown of Taxes, Fees and Charges

£11.00 - Air Passenger Duty
£ 2.50 - Security Surcharge
£12.00 - Fuel Surcharge.

PSC was introduced in 1999 after most airlines decided to separate from the fare the per-passenger element that they pay to UK airports for the use of the airport's passenger facilities. The airport operator is responsible for setting the amount charged as well as whether the charge is levied on departing or arriving passengers.

LHR currently charges a PSC for pax departing LHR and NCL charges there PSC on pax arriving at the airport.

So on a ticket with the routing LHR-NCL a total PSC of £21.20 (LHR=£13.40, NCL = £7.80) is charged by both LHR and NCL. Which means a NCL/LHR ticket is noticeably cheaper as no PSC is charged.

Well I suppose they have to sell cheap tickets to fill up the plane when it has some 3 times more seats than usual...
