    Its not a Tesco its really just a tin shed. Its great for catching flights from I can arrive 10 minutes before take off for Aberdeen flights. Never had a problem catching the flight.

    As for the statement flights are running normally. With 6 flights a day (3 to Aberdeen, 3 to Amsterdam) that wouldn't be difficult.

    Cause Waitrose is too upmarket for the area!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Sounds like a Tesco value chicken hit the side of the Falcon trolley...

    While we don't have a Waitrose (Booths are rumoured to be coming which is frankly a nicer option) Darlington is probably the largest town in the country without a proper Tesco's. There is a Tesco local in the town centre but that is that.

    To be honest its all the nicer for the lack of one.

    Because the primary duty of an airport is to sell stuff? Getting people on and off planes seems unimportant these days.

    Given that Durham Tees has 2 bars (one each side of check-in) 2 WH Smiths (ditto - with strange opening hours that only make sense when you see the timetable) and the worlds worst Duty Free selling stuff is not a priority. Its small size and incredibly late check-in times means its absolutely brilliant provided you want to go to Aberdeen or via Amsterdam.
