The previous thread was getting a bit too big for dial-up users to download, so have decided to start a new thread, same topic. As before, it's all about Manchester and what's going on there.

CO swapped the 762 and 752 around on the schedules on some days in the past 2 Weeks, e.g. CO20/21 is normally a 762, but recently the 762 has been doing CO100/101 with the 752 doing CO20/21.
Seems to be back to normal this week. CO20/21 762, CO100/101 752

No connections offered as they are rival airlines. Howerer, you may be able to connect onto some AB flights from STN.

Don't hold your breath on Air Berlin. They haven't exactly shown great commitment to their existing MAN routes, they don't hold the slots they need at either end and in any case to feed their STN network they would need to leave MAN at the crack of dawn.

Remember bmi's slot applications for BRU, CDG etc. a couple of years ago? It didn't turn out to be anything like that in reality.

MAN-STN is popular and is served by frequent, convenient flights for the business community. Without proper interline agreements, anyone who flies on a potential LCC service on the route in order to connect is taking a gamble, because when it all goes pear shaped (for whatever reason) and you get to STN late, you might as well tear up your flight confirmation and throw it in the bin. You would be better off just flying from MAN or LPL to your end destination. As far as STN as an end destination is concerned, it's very handy if you're going to the City or the East End but the business market to/from MAN tends to come from Cambridge rather than London. If there was a pile of gold for a LCC on the route, it would have been done by now (at least FR or EZY would have done STN-LPL). You also have the train to contend with, a big problem for London, but not for Cambridge.

Of course, but easier saud than done. The options available to the MAN/LPL catchment are a fraction of those available to the STN catchment. Unfortunately.

At the lst minute yes, but book a few weeks in advance and both are more than reasonable. IMO.

Just an update on passenger figures. In the 12 months up to the end of August 2005 the airport handled just short of 22.5 million passengers.

Yes, airside is the same although security has moved slightly. When T2 Phase 2 work begins the whole internal arrangement of the main building will change, security is moving up to the mezzanine level, and once passing through this you will then have to go back down a level into airside, its a ludicrous idea which goes against all the principles of good airport design.

I'm beginning to regret that T2 was ever built in the first place. I now have a vision of a re-modelled T1, something along the lines of Schiphol. This would have taken a major amount of work and disruption. It might even have been more expensive.

I hope it's not 2 x 752s for next summer. That'd mean a lot less freight capacity.

I was surprised when I first read this, but it makes sense. Eastern Airways is very expensive, and there is proven demand between Manchester and Stansted. This route started as Suckling Airways to Ipswich, then Cambridge, and finally was replaced by BA and then Eastern to STN (I think). This part of England is booming (Cambs, Essex and Suffolk), it's inaccessible by rail from the NW, and inconvenient to get to from LHR, LGW or even LCY. I hope it's successful.

You make this sound definate, but there is nothing at all mentioned on the AB website. Is this a little bit of accurate inside information you have delivered us?  scratchchin  Would be an interesting (and cheap) new route if it comes to fruition.

Well, there's a proven demand with 30-seat aircraft types, but operating B737's would be a whole different ball game. However, lower fares would likely stimulate the market and I'm quite sure a large number of people would use such a service to connect at STN to other AB/FR/U2 flights, despite the risks, such is the vast number of affordable destinations on offer at STN which are not available from northern England.

Since when has it been inaccessible by rail from the North West?
Liverpool Lime Street to London Stansted Airport runs on most days

If that Air Berlin route does happen, I'd give it a try, Eastern are a bit expensive, I know you get champagne, but on a 737 it won't be as long, noisy, or bumpy.

To completely unfounded rumours again  Wink

I've seen some interesting paper recently showing a possible Terminal 4 development being tossed about, with the lowcosts like LS,WW and FR etc in mind. Basically a cowshed arrangement built near to 24R/06L with the old rail spur which was built for the runway work being extended into a new terminal. It would give the lowcosts an ideal location for fast runway access once runway 2 is properly doubled with a full length taxiway.
