Aer Lingus requesting permission to start selling tickets and advertising the proposed transatlantic routes from 8th January. https://beta.regulations.gov/document/DOT-OST-2020-0250-0005. A321s for JFK and BOS with A330 for MCO is what is expected to be bookable, with 1 spare A330

I’d be amazed if they weren’t having a serious rethink, given events since that request was filed at the end of last week.

There has to be a case for placing the aircraft into storage on delivery... rather than press on. There’s no way the premise of a somewhat normal summer season looks likely for 2021. Opening of the UK-US market looks as far off as ever.

Seems BA will permanently close their MAN lounge:

Debate about whether will see BA move to T2 and the opening of a shared OW lounge.

I see Air Canada is no longer operating YYZ-MAN from June. Is the date just being pushed back or have they cancelled it altogether?

I'd be surprised if Canada reopens its borders to non-essential travellers in time for summer 2021 anyway.

BGI is probably a safe bet as far as Caribbean destinations go. Popular, a start/end point for cruise ships in that region (and the cruise companies offer fly-cruise packages) and was open to UK tourists who isolated for a few days. The big question will be how quick demand recovers, particularly for cruises.

Do we know if TUI and Virgin had planned to sufficiently backfill the lost BGI capacity from Thomas Cook?

Where is MAN at with the Terminal 2 development? Were they able to speed up the building works whilst traffic was lower over the past year? Also, are they still plan on building three piers or is now just going to be two? What the opening dates for these? Thanks

Sorry 8herveg but I've not visited this site for a few weeks. As far as I'm aware no decision has been made with regards to any of our points.

The only thing that I have seen is that Terminal 2 car park appears to be due to reopen on 1st July - not guaranteed, just reading the 'tickertape' at the top of the airport website that says "All T2 West bookings to go to T1 multi storey car park before June 30".

Thanks Scottiedog. You would have thought they would have used just T1 (and T3 if necessary) over the past year so that they could have sped up the building process of T2 but what do I know!

Just an update on the Aer Lingus operation.
Cabin crew training currently underway for UK hires and those Irish EI crew who are moving over.
Upon commencement of the flights it will be a 50/50 split.

Flight crew will be wholly current EI pilots on secondment.

Some benefit of of the doubt time now to be given to BA who are now auithorised to codeshare on the Aer Lingus services to the USA. Aer Lingus (UK) still not got it's AOC but steady progress is what the CAA is describing the process and with reported "strong bookings" on the routes even though it us UK sales-only with only EI doing the marketing/selling of the routes.

Weather is forecast to be sunny spells with broken cloudy and 16 degrees, so certainly not to bad for Manchester!
I believe it’s daily but not 100% certain…

I was wondering the other day and hoping some people on here might know

What happened to the Cargo traffic at MAN?

Back in the 2000s and early 2010s MAN use to see regular Cargo flights, China Airlines Cargo daily, Dragonair cargo, Cathay Pacfic Cargo, Jet8 cargo, Great Wall Airlines, Fedex and more.

What happened to these flights, why did they leave MAN? And is there any scope for them to return?

MAG moved the vast majority of cargo services to EMA and STN.

Tend to disagree although they need those narrow body LR/MAX frames on the estate first.

When Delta/Virgin (Team) and Aer Lingus/BA/AA (One World) offer daily none stop.
Star need to remain in the market place . Back routing over Frankfurt certainly doesn't cut it to NYC imho- it isn't close to optimal.

Just a quick question regarding Terminal 2, I've been looking on the Airport website but the T2 Development site now just redirects to the MAG site. I'm curious if they are planning on expanding the shopping / restaurant / departure lounge area along the terminal as the redevelopment goes on? I'm just wondering as while I was there a few weeks ago I thought it would get pretty crowded when there's more than a few flights in, on the whole I was impressed with the progress that has been made, I just hope they futureproof it for when the busy days come back.

Though I was less than impressed that the airbridge got stuck to our bird so we were delayed 2 hours, such a delay shouldn't be much more than an inconvenience however Barbados has a curfew from 9 pm and a requirement to quarantine in one's hotel room. Our flight and transfer got us in just before the curfew kicked in but missed out on food opportunities until the following morning, though that is something that Virgin as the tour operator should have some kind of emergency provisions. It was noticeable on-board however, while we were sat waiting, that folks were getting increasingly agitated looking out of the window and seeing several guys in hi-vis jackets standing around (waiting for some engineer to arrive) but to most laymen, doing sod all.

The plan was to refurbish the legacy T2 during 2020-2021 but of course, covid ensured that didn’t happen!
With uncertainty still in the air, there’s no definitive timeline for that to take place I believe.
I expect when the the 2022 summer season starts end of March/beginning of April, all of the outlets within the new extension will open, which should give the place a more open feel. I have heard mixed reviews ref the new terminal and it feeling rather “incomplete” given not everywhere is open yet and some hoardings still exist.

Out of curiosity, which gate/stand was your aircraft at when the airbridge got stuck?
Unfortunately, given the obvious staffing situation with every company right now, it’s not always going to be an easy and quick task to fix technical problems, but things can only get better!

We were on A6, originally allocated A10 but the Singapore A350 was parked there. Part of the problem delay wise was it took about 45 minutes for an engineer to come and fix the airbridge and then due to Virgin policy we had to wait for their engineer to come and check that the aircraft skin hadn't been damaged, perfectly understandable but that was another hour. To be fair the crew had looked at pushing us back at an angle but no joy.

I do like the progress that has been made at T2 though yes there are lots of hoardings giving certain areas an almost building site feel, particularly the long walk down to the A gates and it gives it an odd vibe. I thought the upper level was quite good, during our visit the Wagamama was closed but the Holt's pub and the ale house were open, the ale house was very busy (it was quite small). There seemed to be one unit upstairs which hadn't been rented out yet and I think the place might get too crowded once the traffic picks up (we were a Wednesday morning) though thinking back, I don't think there was any corridors leading in the direction of the older part of the terminal. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together in the end, it was a pleasant experience passing through both departing and arriving.

This article was posted in the United thread: https://www.ttgmedia.com/news/news/unit ... uild-30797

It says that Manchester and Glasgow will be back, but ‘not before summer 2022’. Read into that what you will.

With MAN-PHL also gone, it’s gotten a lot more inconvenient for you to get from Trenton to Manchester!

I suspect it will depend on travel restrictions being eased for arrivals into India. I recall at the moment that "regular scheduled international flights" are suspended and there are now quarantine requirements for arrivals from the UK. Until these are lifted, it's not really a good time to be launching these flights.
