I flew on the WW3508 from BFS to MAN last night, due to arrive at 19:45. We took of at 18:30 and while cruising at FL220, Captain updated us on the progress, height , distance to run (105miles) and weather which was slightly snowing.We then started our descent, As we reached the liverpool area we went around in circles for a little while and maintained a holding altitude. After approx 10mins the captain advised us that MAN was closed due to snow and that we would circle Liverpool(assumed it was Mersi) until it reopened. A short while later he advise us he would divert to LPL due to lack of fuel until the field reopened. We landed at LPL and was parked by the maintenance area, we refuelled and waited for MAN to reopen which it did. We took off at approx 20:20 after being on the ground 30mins.
No other inbounds diverted to LPL.
It seems strange we didnt have enough fuel to hold longer then we did as im sure other inbounds such as the GLA plane and flights after long/medium journeys would also be short on fuel with only enough to hold.
Anyone know why it would be just us.
I must admit the flight from LPL to MAN was fun for such a short flight
