The Ultimate CWL Thread

Wed Nov 19, 2003 8:45 pm

For the benefit of everyone, I am starting this thread for all followers of CWL to post their thoughts and any rumours.
So far we have had Continental 3 x Daily 777 to EWR and UA Daily 744 to ORD.
AA will start 2 x Daily JFK with 767 and Air New Zealand will start a daily 744 flight to AA), New Zealand">AKL to cater for the vast sheep market between the two countries

Any more?  Laugh out loud

Hey,

I heard Air BP is to base about 20 vehicles at CWL.

I also heard that the British Parliament will vote a new law today stating that all flights landing at LHR have to continue on to CWL.

LMAO! Superb. And I now live in North Wales. 0 Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Don't forget that thrice-weekly SIA 744 service, plus AC's daily 333 YYZ flight. And this is ignoring the fact that AA wishes to commence a DFW service!

To bring up another often discussed topic into this....

Why not YUL instead of YYZ?

Hell - why not YYZ, YUL, YVR, Calgary, Halifax, Edmonton... Yellowknife? All daily using the 333, with the exception of Yellowknife which will be twice-daily.

I heard that the T5 plan at LHR is so unpopular and so expensive that the Government has decided instead to extend the Heathrow Express and Picadilly tube lines to CWL, so that CWL will become LHR T5. That way LHR can get new runways (after all, who cares if they concrete over vast areas of Cardiff right ? It can only be an improvement), T5 gets built for GBP0.00, BAA makes millions (always a good thing) and the Government gets runway expansion in the South East (Glamorgan will be nominated as an honorary Home County).

It means that the airside terminal transfer will take 4 hours, which will have a small impact on passengers connecting between T1-4 and T5, but since transfer time T1,2,3 - T4 is about 3 hours now anyway, its only marginally worse.

Airlines that will fly to CWL will also get more slots at LHR, so JAL is adding CWL to it's fleet network. Operated by a 737-400 via ICN, URC, ALA, SVO and HEL.

Re the JNB flights - SA will introduce double daily 343 flights CWL-UTN-JNB (Upington stop for Sheep Fanciers Inclusive Tours) - but because the range and performance of the 343 are so lamentable (they only bought them because Airbus bribed them) causing the aircraft to have trouble climbing over Mt Snowdon with a full load, the flights will be refueled in flight by SAAF 707 tankers based at Ilha do Sal.

Guys, the gates will be crowded at CWL, because Luxair plans to open up a second hub at CWL. This is in response to huge demand from the South Wales region for its Tupolev TU-144 supersonic flights to Kansas City (USA), Maputo (Mozambique), Lukla (Nepal) and St. Barth (French West Indies). The St. Barth service will stop over in Milton Keynes.

Furthermore, to recognise its traditional links to Wales' sheep farmer community, Luxair will equip all its A380 - that ply the CWL-Penzance feeder route - with grazing areas on the lower deck of its aircraft. This will allow Welsh sheep farmers to bring their own sheep and keep them productive throughout their journeys. Forms to apply for EU subsidies will be available from the cabin crew.

As real estate is getting scarce around CWL, Luxair is planning to house its new super-terminal in two newly constructed gigantic towers (about 2.5 times higher than the Petronas Towers in KUL), where planes will be stacked one on top of each other. A high performance elevator systems lifts planes to their parking levels, passengers access their gates by courtesy helicopters. This will allow Luxair to envisage sustained growth in concert with its alliance partners Air Zaire, Bouraq of Indonesia, TWA, and Kamchatka airlines, which together form "Moon Team", the world's biggest airline alliance, which is headquartered at CWL.

In a separate move, Lufthansa has announced that they will construct the world's largest IMAX cinema at CWL, as a response to frequent complaints that its planes do not offer PTVs in economy. Access to the IMAX theatre - which will be built adjacent to Terminal 183 North/Block A/Concourse Romeo/Level 78 and will seat about the entire population of London - will be strictly limited to Economy class passengers.


EXCELLENT thread!!!

(  Laugh out loud Mozart - nice one !)

Rumour has it that the best spotting area for the new Moon Team superhub will be on top of Terminal 183 North/Block A/Concourse Romeo/Level 78. As it is 7500 feet above sea level, you will have an excellent view of the 18 sets of parallel interconnecting runways, the 35,000 acre hard stand and the bigger-than-Greater-London BA maintenance work shops. The WAA (Welsh Airport Authority / Pobolycymllanelli Awrpwrt Cymru) will provide pay-as-you-go binoculars, notebook rental and an on-site anorak/bobble hat repair shop.

Due to the huge undercapacity on the CWL-USA routes, Air India will be diverting all India-LHR-JFK and India-LHR-ORD flights to serve CWL instead of LHR.

The routes to South Africa expected to be launched by Aer Lingus have been announced, though in a surprise move the routes will be operated from CWL! There will be a daily CWL-JNB flight and a thrice weekly DUB-CWL-CPT flight. These new services will be operated with a new fleet of A340-500s in a 200 seat all business class configuration. At last Aer Lingus have realised where they can make some real money!

CWL will open 4 new runways by next week. They will be 58000x550ft, the longest in the world (even longer than Area 51), so that B747s and AN-225s fully packed with sheep can lift off even if it exceeds the MTOW by a very large amount. I am not sure if the wings will snap off though. There is a serious aircraft shortage for transporting sheep.

The runways will be 8L/26R, 8R/26L, 9L/27R, 9R/27L... parallel to eachother.

Latest news is that one of the numerous 747s forgot to close its one of its doors and the sheep are now all over the runway. All the traffic is being diverted to Bristol, many local Welshmen have committed suicide after hearing this shocking news.

Seems that there is a major delay for the sheep transfer flights.. this is getting worse !! many many sheeps are stranded, and BRS seems closed too because of the excess amount of stranded sheep.

Unfortunately, slots are not being made available at the appropriate times due to overcapacity as a result of all the new operations. Hence, AI will have to stick to LHR for now.  Big grin

Three 'Hot off the Press' news items....

Air Wales has also acquired all the ex BA Concordes, will recover them from their current resting places, and will be starting ops to key Welsh airport locations like St Athan, Haverfordwest, Welshpool, Aberporth and Pembrey with several times daily services from CWL.

There is also good news on the cargo front as FedEx is moving it's Memphis hub to CWL and will serve all it's USA destinations via CWL using Cessna208's.... FedEx will also increase its UK ops with nightly Dc-10 ops from Cardiff to Exeter, Newquay, Bournemouth, Manston, Cambridge, Humberside, Aberdeen and Stornoway. these will act as a feeder service to the Transatlantic C208s.

Also Air China have announced that CWL will be their new base for all maintenance for all aircraft in their fleet and they will be building 6 hangars all twice the size of the existing BAMC facility

On the space front, the ESA will be moving the Kourou launch facility to CWL (considered ideal because of its proximity to the Greenwich Meridian and its high level of background radiation caused by the excessive use of microwave ovens). The move is intended to facilitate the introduction of Russian Soyuz launches at the facility, since by moving the site to Europe, millionaire space tourists will not have suffer the indignity/inconvenience of flying Air France to Cayenne.

The entire Kourou site, including the surrounding 20000 hectares of virgin rainforest, will be moved on giant barges across the Atlantic and transplanted in the Severn Estuary.

Because the runway at CWL is too short to handle the AN225 Mriya, in order to get the Soyuz rockets from Baikonur (where they are assembled) to CWL, the Russian Space Agency have introduced a "Re-usable Space Vehicle Concept" which will fire the rocket up into orbit and "hard-land" it in the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff. It is expected that South Wales' large population of unemployed ex-steel workers will be given new jobs collecting the pieces and welding them together at a giant new Launch Vehicle Recovery Facility to be built next to Air China's 744/777 maintenace complex.

It's true - in exchange for Air Wales buying A380's for their lower-deck pasture CWL-PZE service, EADS has granted CWL-based engineering company Dai The Aerospace a risk-sharing partnership to produce the vital right-hand lower fuselage knurled flange-brackets for the A330/A340 and A380 lines, in a deal worth GBP4.75 over then next 27 years. The M4 section between CWL and Avonmouth will be widened to accomodate the giant parallel 48-wheeler dollies used to transport the flange-brackets to the Severn, where specially commissioned Ro-Ro ferries will transport them to Bordeaux and on to the final assembly in Toulouse.

You guys are so bad!  Wink/being sarcastic

CWL was the fastest growing airport in the UK last year in terms of passenger numbers, and the fact that KL flights to Schipol are over 70% transfer passengers surely shows that there is some market outside the normal business and holiday routes.

CWL was badly let down by BA, some of whose routes are now being taken up by Air Wales.

It's true that CWL has been rather over-exposed on these boards recently, but at the end of the day, we are all part of a community that loves all or most aspects of aviation, so don't give Chris too much of a hard time for talking up his local airport.

CWL rocks!

lmao  Laugh out loud.

I think it applies to mr. Ryder10uk too, not just you Chris. However, I do think you were going too far, after all, you know that the CWL-USA flights are actually for BRS, and CWL opened competition for that route after hearing about that...  Big grin.

In other news,

CWL will open a second new terminal, appropriately named the 'cowshed'. No, its not for transporting cows, yes its for... You guessed it, sheep! Seems that the many CX passengers flying back to Hong Kong were complaining about the sheer volume of sheep passing through the existing terminal, and so Cardiff Airport Authority have opened up an old hangar to be used as a terminal. The sheep said they didn't mind as long as there was some shelter and straw to chew on.

Also, CWL are now operating a new ground radar to keep control of the vast sea of sheep that flow through the gates and apron area of the airport, most sheep are now being offered 'cargo tickets' if there is sufficient space for them in the cargo hold.

United Airlines caused contraversy earlier this week after putting a ban on sheep going to the toilet in their seats, threatening to put them in the overhead bins or also in the cargo hold. The main offenders declined to comment remarking 'baaaaaaaa!!!', government translators believe this may mean they will be flying BA to all destinations that United Serve from CWL to the US.
