Air Blue looking to get more planes, more flights to MAN (DXB and other points in Europe)

http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/...OWJONESDJONLINE000392_FORTUNE5.htm

Abbasi said the airline has good prospects for growth in Europe and the Middle East, adding that more flights are being planned to Dubai and Manchester.

Must be doing something right. How long before PIA gets taken over??

Why was it so bad?

1) 757, the AA units are rather tired, check out all the tape in the bathroom!!!
2) Narrow body. Full and cramped.
3) AA. Service was very average, unfortunately typical for a lot of transatlantic out of MAN.

I tend to use US (333 is about the best across the pond connecting where I need to go), DL and BMI. Used to use CO but again those 757's!!!

Anyway enjoy Boston, hopefully the Red Sox will have performed flawlessly and we have the US (World) Series at Fenway.

If you want a 330 to BOS, just go MAN-DUB-BOS with EI!

I am not sure if the coffee shop is in Colwyn Bay or further round, maybe called Morfa?? If you take the coast street from Colwyn Bay towards Llandudno, it curves heading in a northerly direction up towards a golf course. On the left there are shops and this coffee shop/Ice cream parlor. Further up there is a kids play park on the left where the road curves to the left. Maybe I got the name wrong for the area.

If you live near the Zoo you may know the Pen'y Bryn bar.

Here's the potted highlights from the CAA's provisional July stats.

Pride of place has to be Emirates with an astonishing 45000+ passengers flown to/from DXB, up over 25% on July 2006. This equates to 366 passengers per flight or a whopping 84% load (based on 77WHDs operating both services!).
EY has 12000 passenger (up 12%) or 192 per flght and QR 17500 passenger (up 21%) for an average of 283 per flight.

Other good performances include LX to BSL - by my reckoning it averaged 85 pax per flight. SV has 1500 passengers (83 per service, and yes, they do have 5th freedom rights between MAN and GVA as adverts have been placed in local papers offering that route); LO carried over 3000 passengers to WAW (on 54 flights, this is 59 per flight which means their services must be at least 70% full so could be the reason why C0 may take it over if most passengers are leisure related).

BUD had another healthy increase (8000+ passengers), as did HEL (this almost doubled. Did they really operate double the flights this year compared to last?) and CDG gained 5000 scheduled passengers whilst AMS lost 3500.

Pakistan saw ISB have 2500 extra passengers but a combined loss of 1600 passengers from KHI and LHE.

Question marks have to be raised against RTM (just above 1000 passengers) and MXP (if it operated 10 weekly) though there are a whole load of services with "iffy" performances!

Interesting set of figures there. It's certainly good to see the volume of passengers connecting in the Middle East as opposed to the more tradional hubs.

The Pakistan figures always seem to fluctuate in an almost random manner between ISL, KHI and LHE, with ISL obviously always being the biggest market. There doesn't seem to be any reason for this, other than the way the figures are reported.

It's odd that RTM has been attempted over the years by a variety of airlines, yet still never seems to survive for long..... unless the majority of passengers are corporate and high-yielding, which is very possible.

Result is a bit of a shorter journey time and hopefully less delays.

Looked at the QR website and found they have 3 configurations for thier A332s in high-density and a single A333 high density (all breakdowns = J pax / Y pax):

A332 = (1) 260 = 24/236 (2) 272 = 24/248 (3) 281 = 22/259. A333 = 305 = 30/305.

Does anyone know which aircraft is configured for what!?

EY's config should be 262 = 22/240 and if they go to 773, it will be 378 = 28/350.

There's a sneaky rumour doing the rounds that BA might pt a couplr of 757s on couple of tester longhaul routes out of MAN next summer. Boston and Toronto have been mentioned.

I would be extremely surprised were this to be true, but then BA's costs at MAN are minimal now that they have slashed all their staff and no dout they will have been seeing how well BOS and YYZ do from MAN with the likes of AA and AC/TS/TCX etc.etc.

We will see....

MAN needs a carrier which is going to be around more than 10 minutes, and which will support the Airport. The only good thing about this, is that it may make AC get their act together and make Toronto year round.

Shaheen Air International looking to start services next year, from Pakistan. Or so they say.

(http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2007819story_19-8-2007_pg5_7)

(had to put the link in brackets because it screwed up the message)

According to the SAI official, the airline would be starting its services next year to UK (Manchester), while it would start its flight services to USA in the next phase.

I presume they won't be doing the service with a B732 which is what their fleet comprises at the moment.

Since last year they've thought about Robin Hood, Luton and LBA as other UK destinations so they may be talking a good talk, but not doing a whole lot.

As I said earlier, it's a highly seasonal, low yielding route. AC can barely compete with the likes of Zoom et al in the summer when traffic is highest, never mind the winter.
There is a reason why AC only ops to MAN for about 3 months a year now...

How can you say AC can't compete. In its 10 weeks of operation this year 3-4 weeks have been over sold completly. The rest have 70% plus loads and its only in the last week when no one can fly back from YYZ with AC do the loads drop very low. AC could def support even just 5 weekly service as it has a better product and better interline connections with its star alliance partners e.g. SAS, BD and LH.

Bit of news from inside the terminal buildings... Travelex has lost the contract to supply money within the airport buildings. As a result all of their outlets have closed along with the cash machines that they owned. They are being replaced by Thomas Cook Currency Exchange shortly. In the mean time, there is only one currency exchange and one cash machine in T2, both of which are airside!

On the airline side, have heard that Mahan are looking are re-starting their flights on the 10th of September.

Simple. Full flights do not necessarily mean PROFIT. And oversold, low yielding flights mean even less profit, especially in terms of compensation due for affected pax.

As Gkirk says, correctly, these are low yielding passengers. Despite your obvious knowledge to the contrary, I'm gonna trust AC have got their sums right....

Really? If Travelex have lost the contract, I would doubt it very much if Thomas Cook replaced them. This is because in 2001 Travelex bought Thomas Cooks' Global & Financial Services division. Consequently all of Thomas Cook's airport and seaport operations are now operated by Travelex, and all of Thomas Cook branches with Foreign Exchange counters are supplied by Travelex.

The Travelex in T2 arrivals (airside) was replaced by Thomas Cook a while back, and if i'm not mistaken they've already been rebranded to Thomas Cook in T1, so there you have it Thomas Cook are replacing them  Wink

Well when I went in to work this morning the one landside in T2 departures has re-opened displaying Thomas Cook Currency Exchange and the one in T2 arrivals has re-opened, but is run by International Currency Exchange (ICE). Looks like the cash machines have been replaced too and should be back in use shortly.

Just saw on bmi's website that the ORD flight went out late today, it appears that this mornings arrival of the ORD-MAN flight was cancelled. Just wondering if anyone knew what happened to cause it? Im guessing some sort of mx issue? Also was the late departure today operated by a spare 330 that wasnt being used in scheduled rotation? Also is the frame that was supposed to operate the ORD-MAN leg still in ORD?

Thanks

I am sure that it has been mentioned previously that Fedex are to commence a CDG-MAN-MEM service with MD-11s from 27th August.

Just to say that with Monday 27th being a Bank Holiday, the first flight will in fact not operate until Tuesday 28th.

If it IS a maintenace issue, it would just be one of many! That said, the only day they (BD) have a spare aircraft is on a Wednesday. That is when there is no LAS or Carribean seervice.

Just saw on bmi's website that the ORD flight went out late today

Mightn't it be something to do with this thread?

I am sure that it has been mentioned previously that Fedex are to commence a CDG-MAN-MEM service with MD-11s from 27th August.

Just to say that with Monday 27th being a Bank Holiday, the first flight will in fact not operate until Tuesday 28th.

Also feeder flights from NCL and GLA using ATRs

Quoting Ryanair737 (Reply 236):
For the last two nights Monarch have been running MON999T to Palma from MAN departing at 0100 in the morning, possibly a training flight judging by the T code anyone know why it is running?

Its been put in there as a test in our (Swissport) Ops system, the aircraft was down as a 737, it usually pops up now and then, when they restart the system just so they know its all up and working again, and it shows up on AMOSS screens too. This time it had comments next to it saying: "Leave in System LDS test"

For some reason, the GSM LPL-JFK via NOC service was rerouted to depart from MAN today.

Anyone know why?

BD going to 7 weekdaily to ABZ from September 3rd. Funny how they can operate this at that frequency when BAConnect were allegedly losing money hand over fist on a 3 weekdaily DHC8 service. Perhaps some airline operating Saab2000s might want to compete with BD?

I can't think of any airline operating Saab 2000s who would enter such a saturated market against BD
