Quoting 8herveg (Thread starter): It would strengthen the OneWorld alliance from Manchester, allowing for good connections to the far east, instead of flying via London
One World has seemingly very little interest in any other UK airport other than Heathrow - especially for longhaul service. True, AA do serve Chicago and Boston from MAN, but that's about it in terms of longhauls (and the BA JFK service). One World's strategy appears to be funnel everyone through the Heathrow hub.
