Got to go with David_itl's suggestion. How could you be in MAN and resist a flight on a bmi 332!! And, now that they have an earlier departure time, you can have a fairly leisurely jaunt through ORD and return via IAD (or VV, depending on your preferences). Work it out right and you'll get to fly on types you may not have flown before. And don't forget the bmi airmiles. STAR Alliance airlines are much more generous and besides which, US Airways points mightn't be too valuable in the medium term . . .

Personaly when I fly I try to get all the connections I can find, just so I can travel on all different types of airlines..... perhapes you might try jetblue to NY and Virgin to Man or London and there all kinds of airlines with different equipment you can fly on from Lon to Man, just look around at flight routes, times and aircraft. U might be suprised at what you might find.........good luck

If you arrive from a flight from Europe and are transferring to a US domestic city you have to claim your luggage, clear customs and recheck it to your final destination. So, flying from MAN-IAD-SFO could be more time consuming than you might think.....although trying BD's 332 is a goal of mine....you may want to consider flying with a UA codeshare from MAN-LHR and connect to a UA flight to SFO (I think they have one)...or do what the other guy suggests and do MAN-FRA-SFO. The more miles the better.
