The MAN flight although quite full had few business travellers on board. One has reservations about any long-haul route ex-MAN they operate as they would prefer them to go via LHR. Not that I'm suggesting they may have tempted business pax away from the non-stop MAN route.

The LGW service could also never get enough J and F class pax and so was cancelled. At one stage BA did have 3 daily flights from LHR to LAX but now with just 2 they fill them completely and most passengers are paying full high fares and so the route is profitable. Add a third that may not sell completely and you start eating into that profit, if pax demand exceeds then i am sure that they can increase flights pretty quickly.

To add a little bit. I was looking through our timetable and noticed that starting next year (sometime in the summer) we will start serving LAX three times a day. I don't remember all the details but I know that it was 3 days a week. I want to say Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. It will leave LHR around 10:00 and arrive in LAX around 13:05. Then departing LAX at 15:20 and arriving back in LHR at 09:40 +1, using a B-747-400.
I'm on vacation right now but when I get back in the office at the end of this week, I'll get more details on that flight for you (flight number, start date, end date, if it's going to be seasonal).
