They are a new airline, based in Malta (don't let the name fool you!), and are leasing MD-90's for flights between the UK and Malta. I actually saw that BritishJet MD-90 on finals for MAN yesterday lunchtime whilst in Stockport, first time I've seen it in the flesh also.

Search the forum for the airline, there's been a few lengthy posts about them.

They've changed their website now, but a couple of weeks ago, where you had a choice of language (English/Maltese) the flag to click on for English was the one in use from about 1600 to 1800 that didn't include the cross of St Patrick. I thought that was pretty poor for an airline called "British" anything.

Ah okie Mark  Smile

Talking of Stockport do we have any fellow Stopfordonians (i.e. people from Stockport) on here?

It was a surprise to see a new carrier at MAN yesterday.

Only 8 days till I fly out on MYT Big grin

Nah everyone likes to get a free 'plug' in!

We handle FHE (BritishJet) at MAN, those MD90 holds are tiny, always hit your head on them. Its never gone on time ever, its always around 10-15 minutes late on the pushback slot.

How many times do you go to MAN Woady?

Hey

I live in Urmston - while you guys get the approaches - over here we get the climbs!!! Always good to see SQ, MH, PK and EK as the peel away to the East after leaving 24L. Always rush to my bedroom window - can hear those PK 742's from miles away!
