@Airlineroute Wizz Air UK to commence operation on 28OCT18, operating to/from London Luton under IATA code W9 (Selected routes continue to operate under W6).

@mike_carrivick Not my pet airline but never let anyone forget what @ryanair have achieved. That includes A huge range of dynamism and business efficiency to the industry, masses of new routes for millions of travellers, and created buoyant local economies. Worst airline? NO!.

@McWhirterAlex Good piece by @BrunoTrevidic One point not noted is that Norwegian has had to retime its LGW-JFK-LGW A380 flights so as not to clash with other A380 operators at JFK T1. For example, its A380 now departs LGW at 2110 (several hours later than before).
