Hey guys

I am thinking of flying out of MAN to LGW, the flight would depart at 08:35, however my train would arrive at 07:29,

Assuming it would take 10 minutes to get to Terminal 3, 20 mins to pass the control - do you think I could make the flight in less than 30 minutes?

Cheers,
Aiv

Your cutting it VERY tight. What if there is a 10 minute delay to the train or there is a delay at the security point. Is there a way you can get an earlier train, or else I would suggest a later flight. If you miss, you would need to pay what ever change fee their is on your ticket.

Can you check in online MAN-LGW? Would mean you only have to clear security, but will still be tight.

Figure more like 15 minutes. The elevates walkway can be busy, slowing you down.
Plus, avoid the main elevators at the end of the elevated walkway, as they are waay too busy.
Head straight ahead into T1, turn left and head to the end of the check-in hall. Use the elevators there down to G/F. Still a few more steps from there to T3.

Alternative, but not recommended in busy morning traffic or minus daylight, could be to cut across roads from "The Station" to T3. But again, only viable if you know your way around.

Overall a very tight connection, but if it is the only option, might be worth taking the risk.
