Any Chance Of RJ Flying Amman - Manchester?

Mon Dec 04, 2006 7:31 pm

I was wondering if Royal Jordanian would consider starting an Amman - Manchester service.

I know they operate a charter in the Hajj season, but do you think a year round, or at least a seasonal service would be viable?

Perhaps a daily A320 or A310?

It would strengthen the OneWorld alliance from Manchester, allowing for good connections to the far east, instead of flying via London or Dubai etc.

I've never been aware of a particular market from MAN to Amman. Of course, there is one, but Amman isn't a big enough destination to support services from many European cities (save the bigger hubs).

Demand is very low MAN-AMM. the DAM-MAN is because of old links with the textile industry (so i heard) i may be wrong
Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

One World has seemingly very little interest in any other UK airport other than Heathrow - especially for longhaul service. True, AA do serve Chicago and Boston from MAN, but that's about it in terms of longhauls (and the BA JFK service). One World's strategy appears to be funnel everyone through the Heathrow hub.
7late7, A3latey, Sukhoi Superlate... what's going on?
