Re: Manchester (UK) Thread - 2019

Phone won't play ball and link the relevant BBC articles but loganair are cancelling the routes to Norwich and Derry. Derry blamed on a lack of demand but the Norwich route includes closure of the Norwich base blamed on lack of demand on the Norwich - Manchester route. I reckon both routes will be ...

Re: Manchester (UK) Thread - 2019

Got to remember, this allowed DL to in effect ‘close’ the station and hand it over to VS.

I guess from a brand perspective, I always feel that VS is better suited for the MAN market as I'd imagine most of the traffic is outbound and VS is better known for Br...

Re: Manchester (UK) Thread - 2019

Am I being a bit unkind here? The updates about construction progress, and all the data it takes to just view the actual thread.... are they really necessary? Yes I know I don’t HAVE to read the thread. **just asking** Kind regards HUYfan It’s a MAN based thread. So yes, if you don’t want to read i...

Re: Manchester (UK) Thread - 2019
