Time for a new thread as the other was over 200 posts long.

Therefore, here's an extremely short résumé of MAN news 34

New UK-Bangladesh Air Services Agreement reached

And that's it. Told you it was extremely short!

Nice find. I was about to suggest that there's no real possibility of 31 services a week being taken up and especially not to Sylhet, because I can't forsee any airline able to operate them.

But, it says on wikipedia (!) that Biman already operate from Sylhet to LHR, which I didn't know. I notice also that the Air Sylhet website is still going and that Royal Bengal Airline is operating domestically. Could well be interesting times ahead for UK - Bangladesh...

So BG end of March still looking to happen. 28th March is what I've been told this time.

Woops. Time to get the link correctly done. It would be amazing to see 31 services happening but I fuly anticipate that most if not all services would be done by Bangladeshi airlines.

Is there any chance of AI making a return to MAN in the near future? I sure would love to see either their or IT's livery gracing the asphalt at MAN!

BT671/672 to RIX three times weekly on a 733. Flights will arrive at MAN 0010 and leave at 0055.

B675/676 to VNO twice weekly on a 735. Flights will arrive at MAN at 0010 and leave at 0050.

I really hope those times I gave turn out to be wrong as, wow, they suck ass.

It's just a rumour i heard. Probably to be taken with a pinch of salt. EZY tend to shy away from domestics these days but a profitable (atleast i believe it is) route like MAN-SOU combined with an otherwise lengthy car/train journey could just swing it. Or would LGW be more lucrative?

The Aer Lingus A330 that came to MAN on 17JAN should this morning have left at 0830 as EI2111 to SNN.

Also on the Aer Lingus front we have an upgrade on tonight's EI206/207 to an A321. Wow.
