British Midland's low cost brand BMI Baby flies from MAN to GLA. Give em a whirl.
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

But you may still be able to get a 'Tiny' fare, as Baby have some seats to sell on the route.

BA connect is probably the best way; book early enough and you might get one of the £25 fares.

Im pretty sure AirSouthwest are reliable ..
Ive booked a few flights on the NQYLGWNQY run and thats probably the only routing you could catch a delay...

If your plane is late inbound to NQY from LGW then it could cause a knock on delay, but having said that NQY isnt that big and Air SW arent such a huge airline so unless you find a tech issue you should be ok...

If you travel with them let me know how you like them... most of my clients treat the airline as just another commuter hop but Id be interested to see what seasoned plane enthusiasts make of them...  Smile

How about returning MAN-DUB/BFS/BHD-GLA and looking for low FR/BE/WW/EZY fares? Probably pushing it if you want a day trip though.

Air Southwest are totally reliable, but if any flights are buggered up by fog in Plymouth, then the whole system can go awry.

Yeap, that or technical problems, or crew unavalability. So long as you are flying during the summer months then you should not be affected too badly by problems with the weather, but allow lots of time for your connection. They have a very tight scheduled, so if something goes wrong things get delayed, pasengers transfer between flights at BRS which means that the other aircraft is delayed waiting for the late one to arrive. Aside from that they are a very good airline, polite and have comfy seats.
