It’s VOR calibration which requires the pattern seen. Happens quite a lot over night around the U.K., just have to look at FR24 at the right time to see it.

Re: All Fifth Freedom Traffic on the North Atlantic -- Ever!

PIA served ORD/IAH/JFK via MAN. ORD also ran via BHX for a short while too.

I’m sure Aer Lingus also ran a TATL route from MAN but can’t remember the routing.

Biman also ran DAC-MAN-JFK.

Ethiopian also have DUB-LAX.

The demonstrator is coming to MAN on 24th Sept for 2 nights, but I’m not sure who it’s coming for. BA Cityflyer are the only airline HQ’ed in the Manchester area that could realistically look at the aircraft, but as said I’ve had no intel as to who it’s in for so that’s just speculation.

MT will only have 1 A330 based at LGW which is already fully utilised for S19.

I don’t see MT expanding much TATL at LGW, seems to be the MAN focus for that one. Just doesn’t fit in with what DE/MT have been developing.
