Do Singapore Airlines offer a service direct to MAN?

I think they do, but a friend flew to Singapore today and went via LHR, I was suprised she didnt choose the MAN flight, is it more expemnsive as a rule?

There might be lower fares on SQ via LHR in Y, but not in C or F.

Theyre in Y, they might have booked it all as one theyre going MAN to Brisbane and then on to Auckland, im currently tracking their flight through SIN and LHR airport info, any better ways of doing it?

It surprised me they didnt book through an alliance, they gone BA-SQ-QF. If I were them I would have booked either oneworld from MAN, or Star from LBA

there are not really any "alliance" tickets at present. I think its bizarre to be honest how in this ever increasing world of airline aliances, airlines do not share fares. The only such of these to Australia is the BA/QF alliance, but it is generally quite expensive, and the service is not as good as SQ. However being a travel agent, I must admit it is unusual for an SQ ticket plus a QF ticket on the trans-tasman flights to NZ to work out cheaper than an all BA/QF journey. Maybe your relatives did not realise this, or they were uncertain of their plans when they booked the international flights.

At work when I do Australia bookings (which is 65% of the time, being an Aussie travel specialist), I generally use QF for international and domestics, or use other airlines in conjunction with Virgin Blue.

I hope this is of use!

The Manchester flights in economy do go very full permanently, its difficult to ever find availability in the cheap fare classes. Im not sure about business, but from what I have heard the yields are very low in this cabin, hence why the route has been cut back, and also why MH dropped there non-stop Manchester service.
