Funny that you would start a thread like this as I am currently trying to find a good price on a Dublin to London flight
If your flying date is in August or want to fly to LHR, go EI and forget about BA and BD, they're wayyyy to expensive.
If you're flying to anything else than LHR, then FR's going to have the best price.
If your flying date is anywhere after September 27thg, MyTravel Lite are launching a new service from LHR (or was it LGW ?) at rock bottom prices.
P.S : plug for Mr Peter Unmuth who was disappointed not to see one in my last post :

BD will be slightly cheaper, but BA has the best service. Don't take the train, both airlines are bookable between 50-60£.
If you want to have some fun, I recommend the following: take EI or BD to DUB (avoid booking under a BA flightnr, since BA is in several cases more expensive on this route, while the flight is operated by EI anyway). Once in DUB, you can take an EI flight to SNN, and the flights between DUB and SNN are operated with the Airbus A330.
I have done this a few weeks ago, and being on an A330 for the 30min hop is really a nice experience.
The flight I took stopped in SNN and continued to BWI. So when I boarded in DUB, also my seat was equipped with a napkin/headsets etc etc.
A very memorable experience! Not that cheap for such a short flight (about 100$).

LHR - MAN is a 30 minute flight - at most it takes an hour depending on London traffic. The service differences on such a short flight are minimal between bmi and BA, but if you want to pay 10 pounds or more extra for a sandwich then go with BA. Bmi are cheaper and you get the usual complimentary bar and a small bag of nibbles.
As already said, DO NOT TAKE THE TRAIN! After having travelled to London from Manchester by both modes of transport - with fare's so low for flying down I would always take the plane over the train given the choice.
