I might have to make a special effort to go, in times gone by I would have taken a tent but nowwith a real job I may be able to afford a solid roof. Not too many drinkies though as I'll be driving there. What time does MAN generally get going on a sat mornings?

Removing myself from the 'Maybe' list as there's no way I can make it now. Sadly I'll have moved south (the shame) by the time it comes round.

Just moved pawsleykat to the maybe list as he's now working as Cabin Crew for U2 and does not yet know his roster for July... hopefully he won't be too upset that I took the liberty of doing it  

I'm still planning to definitely be there, depending on cash - it's going to be a tight year for me!

Quoting HT (Reply 1):
MAN - DUB on EI
DUB - BLK on RE (flying for EI)
BLK - IOM on NM
IOM - MAN on BE
departing 1055h, returning 1930h

EI cancelled the 1055h departure from MAN to DUB and rebooked me on the late-evening flight still on the same day.
That way my first leg on the EI-reservation (MAN-DUB) departs hours later than my second leg arrives at BLK ...   
I will need to talk to EI about this.

Alternative would be a 0800h departure out of MAN on Sunday morning (I hardly fancy this) or to restrict the EI-reservation to DUB-BLK only combined with a new reservation on FR MAN-DUB mid-morning (I do not fancy this one either).

Third alternative is to get rid of the EI-reservation completely and take the train from MAN to Blackpool, then on to BLK.

Quoting SAA738 (Reply 10):

roughly 80 GBP / 90 EUR with pre-payment and w/o breakfast.
More flexible rates are available for 2 nights at 95 GBP each or 105 GBP for a single night.

Bewleys Hotel is more economical at 64 EUR w/o breakfast.

That would be Boeing74741R who is funnily enough another Alex. I may have been spotted by him at Ardwick once....

Quoting HT (Reply 9):
and take the train from MAN to Blackpool, then on to BLK

I fully recommend the First Keolis Transpennine Express service from Manchester Airport to Blackpool North which would be operated by a Class 185 Siemens Desiro unit that was built in your homeland of Germany in the town of Krefeld just outside of Dusseldorf. With three Cummins QSK19 engines delivering a total of 2250bhp through Voith Hydraulic T312BRE tranmissions that power two axels per carriage, you can be sure to arrive at your destination on time in either one of the 154 Standard Class or 15 First Class seats.

Below we see LHRjc enjoying First Class onboard 185108 last year.

If the weather is good on that Sunday and I get up on time, I likely will take that very train and have a stroll in Blackpool prior to heading to BLK.
Backup plan is to use Transpennine Express to Preston and change for Northern Rail to SQU (Squires Gate) in order to head directly to the airport.

I still need to get into contact with EI (will do that in Monday from office) and hear what they have in mind regarding my (spoilt) reservation.

I take it, that's the quote for the outbound trip, while the return might take longer depending on how many lamp posts one has to hug ?

Or sheep in Gkirk's case!

Looking forward to seeing you again HT, hopefully though it won't be going dark at 1pm like last time!

If it should be dark by 1 pm we surely would have had way too much beer ... 
See you in MAN !

Quoting HT (Reply 9):
EI cancelled the 1055h departure from MAN to DUB and rebooked me on the late-evening flight still on the same day.
That way my first leg on the EI-reservation (MAN-DUB) departs hours later than my second leg arrives at BLK ...
I will need to talk to EI about this.

Alternative would be a 0800h departure out of MAN on Sunday morning (I hardly fancy this) or to restrict the EI-reservation to DUB-BLK only combined with a new reservation on FR MAN-DUB mid-morning (I do not fancy this one either).

Third alternative is to get rid of the EI-reservation completely and take the train from MAN to Blackpool, then on to BLK.

So, 6 weeks after that change (and the secretive eMail), EI finally sent me an clearly stated eMail asking to contact them by phone.
They were offering me to accept the 0800h deprture from MAN, rebook me to any other date or to give me a full refund; the latter I accepted.
All in all, a speedy process on the phone. Good service. Only strengthens my respect for EI   

I now will go by train to BLK as discussed in earlier replies (see around replies 16/17). Taking the train actually had become my first plan meanwhile anyhow and I was prepared to no-show for the EI-flight and write-off the monies paid, but with that refund things are even better. But, No, that does not mean "free beer for everyone at the airport pub"

No changes here, I'm still in. Will be staying at Bewleys. JLAmber will arrive with the same flight as me (SQ328 from MUC), and a few more guys from netAirspace will be around as well.

I'm really looking forward to the meet! Here's to hoping for some decent weather - and for Germany defeating England in the WC quarter finals...

Full refund from EI has been showing after only 9 days in my CC account.
Good job !

I'll be leaving at around 14:30ish on the Sunday, taking a train to get the flight from LBA.

Are we planning a meal this year on the Saturday?

Just a heads up - I will be driving up from the London-Heathrow area. Up on the saturday morning, down on the sunday afternoon.

If anyone wants a lift to/from - shout - a small contribution for fuel is all I ask

Thanks
