I just got back a few hours ago. We were on a 737-300 both ways which was nice as thats a new varient to add to the list
. The flights bothways were excellent as was the cheese sandwhiches.
We didn't have any problems at AMS
either with baggage ours were first off, and again likewise back at MAN
Checking in at Manchester was easy too, I don't like E-Tickets (had problems in the past) but all I needed was my passport and that was it.
Check in coming back today was a bit insane since they have started working on a small section of departures 2 which makes the queueing system awful (especially midway through the line when two more randomly started lines try to join). The automated checkin computers are really cool too.
I am really amazed at Schipol, well Amsterdam in general I really didn't want to leave (especially since I only had 1 hours sleep). Still I'll be going back in October/November for about a month
