Will AA be operating the BOS next winter, too?

I believe so, although with the withdrawal of NCL-JFK, the AA management at MAN are apparently v. worried about losing both MAN-BOS and MAN-MIA, leaving them with just MAN-ORD (and resulting in staff being let go). As far as NCL goes, rather than "high fuel prices", the gentleman I was talking to about it blames DL flooding the European market with new routes (inc. MAN-JFK) post-chapter 11.

MAN-MIA is a three-month service before MAN-BOS returns. Its success this summer means that the best-case scenario for AA is that it becomes year-round, worst-case is that they lose it altogether. I expect somewhere in the middle!

Indeed; I was told that apparently, the only reason it's coming in at all is AA's contract with the cruise lines that operate out of Florida.

In my own humble opinion, based on chatting to AA staff at MAN during work, fairly likely. It's had its quiet days but it seems more than capable of supporting itself.

It's not reliant on it; I'd say transferring passengers average about 20pax per day.

BOS is a likely year-rounder. The MIA season has been cut and the cruise companies are not delivering for the flight. It is flakey to say the least. BOS continues to operate well and could be converted to 767.

I wouldn't be surprised to see BOS go year round at the end of this year, if not definitely by the end of next year. It was one of the most demanded routes that wasn't served by passengers at MAN before AA started the route a couple of years ago. Shame that MIA can't share the success.

If MAN gets another 763, I am sure it will be one of the new dusked aircraft. The other 763s are in Eurofleet configuration and I doubt BA would use them on a longhaul route!

It will be another 763, it will come up one morning on the LHR shuttle, and do the JFK outbound, when G-BNWH arrives it will operate the shuttle back down to LHR. It has been done many times before, when BNWH needed maintenance.
We had BNWU last time when BNWH went tech in JFK.

The other 763's done high density European routes from LHR I think.

Not sure if its been mentioned, but Virgin Atlantic will be positioning a second B747 up to MAN for thursdays, fridays and saturdays from november, operating to St. Lucia on the thursday, then extra Orlando flights on the friday and saturday. There will be no Orlando flights on sunday, with the usual VS075 being replaced by a Barbados flight. So affectively, Orlando will be x8 weekly, Barbados and St. Lucia will be 1x weekly.

BA's MAN-JFK service could well revert back to BA Mainline so that it is less of a hassle to get a replacement plane when (inevitably) the flight goes tech. Citiexpress is getting thinner and thinner.

I thought it was always operated by mainline? The aircraft and cockpit crew belong to BA mainline and the cabin crew are Manchester based. If you do the following format in Amadeus: >DOBA1502 or >DOBA1503 it no longer says 'Operated by British Airways CitiExpress'. Similary on ba.com, when you book MAN-JFK it says 'Operated by British Airways'. Had it been CitiExpress, ba.com would read 'Operated by BA CitiExpress. Service may differ from BA.'

You're right - MAN-JFK has always been BA mainline.

Some of the cabin crew are from CitiExpress (who formerly worked for BA Regional) and for a time BA advised passengers that the flight was "operated by CitiExpress" for that reason.

It seems that they've had a change of heart and (correctly) decided that having CitiExpress cabin crew doesn't mean in any legal sense that the flight is operated by CitiExpress. The flight is still operated on a British Airways aircraft, using British Airways pilots, on British Airways' AOC, conforming to British Airways' SOPs and using British Airways' licenses and route authorities - the CitiExpress cabin crews on the MAN-JFK flight will operate to BA mainline SOPs and regulations, as they are operating on a flight conducted under someone elses's AOC.

I have just noted on Amadeus that Delta's planned JFK-MAN service (to start in Spring) has no business class? Are they going to operate a 767 all in Y class? What will that mean for BA's MAN-JFK in terms of competition? As far as I can make out, BA have healthy loads in C on its service so there certainly is a market for C class - CO also operate to MAN with a C cabin.

Correct. As I am given to understand the situation, Delta are switch aircraft from the domestic to the international market. Until the aircraft can be reconfigured they will be sold as an all economy service.

Having said that, the AA service MAN/BOS is sold as all Y, but if you have a full fare ticket, or are a gold card holder etc, then they seat you in what was the domestic First class cabin, with the bigger seat.

Hope that answers your question. By the way, I assume that by the start of the winter programme it will be a 2 class service.

True. The bigger seats are also sold to anyone as "Premium Economy" at the *ahem* reasonable price of £100 each. It's rare that they have no takers.

Any chance of CO bringing back a 777 like the good "old" days?

It depends upon what you call a regular occurrence?

The Hadj is yearly, therefore it is a regular occurrence. Saudia have operated flights during this period for the last couple of years and hopefully will continue for the foreseeable future. All of the flights operate as charters - in the same way as the Yemeni ones.

As i said on the other thread, i really can't see this happening, especially with DL starting daily 764 ops on the route in may, and with BA and PK on the route and CO to EWR. I would think any expansion from VS is more likely to come from the totally leisure orientated routes like the recently started BGI service and the upcoming UVF service. Wouldn't be surprised if BD pull some more of ther routes and VS pick them up.

An update on passenger figures is that 22.1 million people passed through MAN during 2005, up 5.26% from 21 million the previous year.

On a side note, a Thomas Cook Airlines 757-200 (G-FCLG) performed an emergency landing on runway 24L today after returing to MAN a few hours after taking off for Banjul. After a fire service escort to the gate, the aircraft was then towed to the Monarch hangar.

Yep, it was a bit a nightmare from work i heard from my colleagues over in T1 on the TCX team. The BJL flight returned after departure, the flight to FNC went tech at the gate, and the flight to VRA/HOG had to be de-boarded due the landing gear collapsing!

And now for some "interesting old news" - BE's BHD service started today: the inaugural service (BE181) has 62 pax on board I believe and the BE186 had 38 pax.

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to how RE is doing on the IOM sevice? Whenever I've gathered the pax figures for the RE858, it always seems very, very low - a day or two back there was precisely 1 passenger and tonight there's only 2! Euromanx cobbled together 21 for their last flight of the day

TCX seemed to handle it relatively well, they had G-JMCF ready and waiting at the gate as a replacement for the BJL plane. I guess this is one reason why they diverted back into MAN rather than go to an alternate airport. It was in the MIRSI hold for around an hour, presumably burning up fuel, before it eventually landed.

Matt,

At least it may free up some slots for an airline to use more efficiently. After being in MAN the other day, it looks like BA could easily be finished off if the like of BE and Jet2 become serious. T3 looked deserted except for the Shuttle and AA flights. Why the BOS flight is not year round I do not know, just wish it was flown by someone other than AA, and those taped up 757's.

MAN growth for Dec was poor again .2%. Obviously BA stopping a lot of routes has not helped. MAN must surely look at the situation and pull the plug on the wasted slots BA is taking up.
