On the 10:50 LHR flight to MAN tomorrow - so, what can you tell me about BMI ? How's the service ? I've already done the rounds on the other low cost airlines, and the 40 quid fare to Manchester was too good to pass up ... my friends and I are off for a weekend clubbing/drinking/eyeing up laydeez ;-]
I'll post a trip report if anyone wants specifics - cabin photo's ? maybe try and get a cockpit photo ? Let me know and I'll try to accomodate your request :-]

I flew LHR-MAN with BMI on Monday afternoon (12:50 departure) and it's a very short run. Our flight time was only 30 minutes. The only service was a quick drink/pretzels. The a/c was a 737-500 and it was clean, tidy etc, and the crew friendly.

RichardW - if you check out Barcode's profile you will find that she's a she looking for other laydeez !! so I think she will be fine at Mardi Gras this weekend !!
As for BMI's service , I have flown MAN > LHR route numerous times over the last few years and the service is usually good even in economy - depending on the time of flight - you sometimes get a pretty decent breakfast !!

It's a good job that Mardi Gras is going ahead now....it was cancelled three days ago due to the police and council restricting the alcohol-tolerance outside drinking zone to Canal Street only. There's been a compromise which has led the organisers to rethink their cancellation decision.

Yeah, you should try 14 hrs in Y with Qantas as I've done twice in the last 2 years. It's not something I want to do again in a hurry-hence why I insisted on BA flights in both directions on my next trip to Asia! I'll QF another go sometime next year in the hope that the cabin upgrades on the 744's might also extend to the cabin srvice aswell as the furnishings!
you can't buy time but you can sell your soul and the closest thing to heaven is to rock'n'roll
