Not quite sure how this is going to work unless easy change many schedules to arrival in the am to tie up with the westbound departures, as it is the arrivals at the moment are but a handful from Paris , Amsterdam which both have significant westbound traffic of their own. It will work for U.S. inbo...Jump to post

‘we used the industry benchmarks to determine prices, and other U.K. airports such as Stansted and East Midlands airports already have such charges’. Stansted and East Midlands. The other 2 MAG airports?! That’s your benchmark?! Seriously!? Benchmarking yourself against yourself is not a worthwhile...Jump to post
David, I do agree with all you say, it’s just that this last few years we have been spoilt getting all we have done. As for man or indeed Manchester as a city to be classed as a mere region is way off the mark. In my job I have been to most cities and towns in mainland uk and on leaving them to retu...Jump to post

On another note re: summer runway operating hours,,,, it has been reported elsewhere that from July they wil...Jump to post

IMHO, the venture that primera embarked upon had car crash written all over it. If indeed the delays in launching all of the ...Jump to post
Just been reported that Emirates signed a deal for 36 More A380 aircraft,,,, not sure what this means for their global aspirations. New countries, more regional airports or upgrades from B 777?
I really did think that the A350 or Dreamliner would have covered those markets though.
Dubai – Manchester 01MAY18 – 13JUN18 EK021/022 777-300ER replaces A380 (Overall 2 daily A380 and 1 daily 777) As reported by Ian f.
