Plenty of Riggers live in Teeside/North Yorkshire/Tyne & Wear and use the East Coast/Cross Country Aberdeen services. So much so the 0952 Ex Aberdeen -KGX on Fridays alcohol is banned due to the antisocial behaviour problems from the riggers. Yes plenty of flights to Aberdeen and I have spoken to riggers and most buy walk on tickets because flights cancelled or its just convenient because of the nature of their work. The Aberdeen trains make East Coast a lot of money per train and running the minimum of 3 per day to/from London and the 1 a day from Leeds is the bare minimum. Their have been calls post IEP for a Middlesbrough -Aberdeen service once a day in each direction because of the Rigger traffic.
