I arrived for my flight home at TFS at 2:25, checked in quickly before moving through to departures. From there, a great view of the ramp could be seen. I seen a CC 742 also going to MAN, Lots of Air 2000 752s, Excel 738s and 762, JMC 753, 752 and 320 A.c. MyTravel with a 763 flight to Glasgow amongst other things. Highlight of the day though was a Dormodedova
Departure was later than expected but the DC-10 once again took to the skies with ease
I watched "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" on the TV and after that finished, I listened to the radio.
Food was absolutly gorgeous again, for a change, 2 flights in a row with good food
Flight attendants were brilliant once more, and my seat was pretty comfy too
Route was depart from TFS runway 8, before turning north, heading over Portugal, Santiago, Bay of Biscay and Southern England before decending into Manchester. Cruise was at 36,000ft.
Descent into MAN was nice as it was night time, and we got a tour of MAN as we headed past the airport to the north before turning right and coming round the city before landing on runway 24R at Manchester.
It was pretty quiet at MAN, in terms of pax numbers as it was 21:20pm when we landed, 15 minutes later than scheduled, so we made up a lot of time en-route.
However, it took over an hour to get our bags back, which was a major disappointment for me, as I thought they could and should have done it quicker. Some parts of T1 also looked like a building site >>
Anyway, hope you've enjoyed this trip report and any questions, just ask me
