I tried to bid for that flight, but not surprisingly our chief pilots were rostered on it

Aww lol would have taken a pic of you passing bye, Intrigued why the flight keeps using an Edelweiss Flight code but is a Swiss A321. Maybe you can help?

Yeah, most if not all charter flights are carrying edelweiss flightnumbers as that's the charter division of LX, even though a lot of the flights are actually operated by us and not Edelweiss. I don't know why exactly, but it surely must have something to do with cost structures.

^Just landed about 5 mins ago.. crappy sky as always but nice to see a different airline.

Edelweiss A330 would have been sweeeet! I remember when they started up im sure LTN was one of their first destinations with the MD80s.. thats when I was tiny small.

Excuse my ignorance. Is Luton the closest airport to the Wembley? Or why do they fly there? Because of the lack of slots at LHR?

Yes, Wembley is north/west of London and LTN is closest. Traffic wise is LHR a horror.. Guess they choose LTN for quick check-in & boarding.

Indeed Luton is ideally placed with a huge large catchment area, Unfortunately the lack of investment means we will never fullfill the potential we have. In the UK airports are evil!
