I know PK serve MAN-IAH already, but if they weren't doing that service, do you think it would be possible for Continental Airlines to do it?

Perhaps with a B763/ER? 5 x weekly? It could offer great connections for all of Southern and South America, including the Caribbean.

Continental seems like such a good long-haul airline for a regional airport like Manchester, as it only has one premium class...'BusinessFirst'.

Any thoughts?

We had through service to MAN a few years ago from IAH. It was a 4 day trip for the f/a crews.

MAN-IAH is even further down the list than FRA-IAH, MAD-IAH, Asia-IAH and so on. As much as it would be nice, I highly doubt it.

We just need more planes.

it means direct service b/t the city pairs with a stop in EWR......just like flight 50, 62, 40...........so IAH has direct service to FRA/MAD/FCO/DUB

I needed to fly IAH-MAN several times and couldn't book the leg with Pakistani, did they ever get the freedoms to ticket that route before the moved? I remember much discussion on this board but cannot find any of the old threads today.

Should have elaborated. Sorry.

Flight 20 went IAH-EWR-MAN. It went 'through' EWR. Sometimes it was same plane, sometimes a change of plane, even a change of equipment on any of the legs.

No need to rehash the debate of direct/nonstop.

Hope it explains 'through'.

They must gave got them as MAN-IAH appears in the CAA's passenger statisitics (though it has to be said normally less than 40 passengers a month appear to routing MAN-IAH-MAN on these non-stop flights)

Would be nice. As you know I am very pro MAN and would olove to see the airport become a bigger international affair, like MXP and even LGW pity our national carrier has no faith in MAN

As for the oil business I would expect to see a IAH-GLA before any IAH-MAN.

I wonder how much more likely is IAH-ABZ now that ABZ has been allowed a runway extension.

There are also several oil companies that run their private jets IAH-ABZ now
Unrelated-Houston and Aberdeen (the Grampian region) are sister cities

PK doesn't have much connecting traffic on the IAH-MAN sector so I think 10-12 a flight Houston-Manchester makes sense. CO flying it would have a bigger catchment area though I would not expect to see daily if it ever happened (and this is more future CO timeframe speculation  Wink )

I have often wondered why ABZ, GLA or MAN were not offered from IAH. Indeed , CO is probably the most likely candidate to service these markets from IAH for obvious reasons. However as all here are no doubt aware, due to a lack of long range A/C, CO's expansion to Europe from IAH (or other int'l destinations outside Latin America) has been little more than a trickle. Of course it is believed that many new int'l markets from IAH will open once the 787 is introduced.

Now, I am curious as to why BA or BD have not looked at a IAH/MAN flight. Actually, now that I think about it, I seem to recall a rumor many years back that BD was awarded an IAH slot from MAN but never chose to utilize it. Any truth to that?

Assuming CO dont do ABZ-IAH (say dont think they can justify a B767 and dont want to get into BBJ operation) but do want to do IAH-Scotland, would they serve GLA or EDI? EDI wil have the best rail links when its new station opnes. Not sure about road links though

Not anymore. IAH has been cut with the new EU rules banning the PK 742s. (at least they havent flown in since the last week of October....im assuming its cut for good since the loads were crappy from what I hear).

I could see a 76 on IAH-MAN, would be a good run in my opinion. Id fly it!

When the 787s come online I think IAH will finally shine in terms of international service--because if nothing else the 76s can be used to open up those routes--and also from what the CO guys are hinting at some more 777s may be on the horizon.
