I mean that the vast majoity of Europe-UK flights are operated by scheduled full-service airlines which rely on (generally speaking) the premium cabins / fares to actually make money.. tourists in the back paying next to nothing don't make them much profit.
Are there enough tourists from MAN to regularly fill the plane to the hilt, and at good enough yield?

Laker Airways was one of the biggest and most successful airways or the 20th century. Freddy Laker's airline introduced the idea of low cost flights across the Atlantic and around the world and paved the way for companies like Easyjet, Ryanair and any other low cost airlines.
Laker drove down the prices for flights amongst the current main carriers too as they simply couldn't compete with Laker Airways' incredibly popular deals.
Laker was driven to bankruptcy at the end of the 1970s due to an avalanche of bad luck and wrong doings by competitors and supposed supporters alike.
