Busy Days At NCL. Assistance Needed.

Thu Jun 23, 2005 5:13 pm

Right, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me which day(s) are the busiest at Newcastle (NCL) during the upcoming month. I'll try to spend a few hours there sometime, but preferably on a day with fairly busy traffic.

Anything interesting showing up at NCL during July that anyone is aware of? 747s, An-124s, A380s etc...  Smile

747s may appear on the Excel Airways long haul flights  Wink
Already had an EUK 742 and an Air Pullmantur 742 op for XLA.
Now, the strike dates  Wink
Strike dates:
30th June for 48 Hours
11th July for 24 Hours
16th July for 24 Hours
29th July for 48 Hours

Quoting Gkirk (Reply 1):
Strike dates:
30th June for 48 Hours
11th July for 24 Hours
16th July for 24 Hours
29th July for 48 Hours

These are the days when it's likely to bump into a 747 at NCL?  Confused

Oh I see... Big grin

So which days are the busy ones then?  Smile

And don't you tell me it's saturday. I'm so tired of standing there with the cars going by. People thinking "standing here on a saturday afternoon, how sad". (And' I have to agree with them.) Big grin

Friday and Saturday seem to be the busiest days. Im trying to find out when a 747 will be at NCL this summer, so I can catch a glimpse.
Why drive when you can fly?

Rats... ok then, Saturday it is.  Smile

Will try to catch a 747 aswell if possible, though I hope to see a few of them during the MAN meet.

Whenever the Excel 767s go tech, there's a good chance that a 747 might replace it  Wink Other than that, very rare  Wink

Hmm, so no good telling then... righto. A 747 should be considered a bonus then. Just have to settle with the Easy Jets this year as well.  Smile
