Mahan Air will recommence services three times a week in to Manchester from 18th November
That's news to me! Not heard anything in the office about their return.

Does this mean MAN is growing into a serious growing Rail Terminal and less so an International Airport Big grin
|Quoting GayrugbyMAN (Reply 102):|
They even use a Manchester United logo on their website! Cheeky, bet they don't have permission!
Was announced at a meeting with the airport recently apparently. They have seemingly sorted out their issues it would appear.
On another note, looks like the FI servics have changed their timings?
|Quoting Col (Reply 111):|
Interesting that she believes they have a good offering of on board service. I find their long haul product pretty poor!!!
Glad to see somebody seeing the opportunity.
|Quoting Express1 (Reply 114):|
I hurd a rumour last year that SIA will be putting a B777 service to LHR this year to replace one of the B744 flights. So to clear up this rumour,is this true or is SIA keeping the B777 flights to MAN.
|Quoting GayrugbyMAN (Reply 109):
LS look set to reduce their based aircraft by 3 for next summer, with an inevitable reduction in services. Unlikely we will see AMS, PRG, BGY, BCN, SXF or TLS back next summer.
Seems they are to concentrate on LBA and BFS.
So with GB and LS airraft going, that's 5 extra spaces at MAN next summer for EZY!
|Quoting GayrugbyMAN (Reply 122):|
LN will be operating an AB6 from Benghazi to Manchester on Christmas Day, presumably a Hajj charter.
Also heard today that the TCX/MYT merger looks set to reduce the combined based aircraft mext summer by 3, so along with LS and XLA that's even more space at MAN this coming year! Oh dear!
Heard rumours today from a reliable source that WW are looking to expand to possibly a firther 5 new routes in 2008...would be good if it happens.
|Quoting BlueShamu330s (Reply 125):
Mrs Shamu had the pleasure of showing someone around the 4th and 9th floor today from ey up in LS. He was very tight lipped, but from what was hinted, Jet2 are far from retrenching away from MAN, but readjusting to what they see are "more suitable" markets and opportunities ex-MAN. He did say the probability of Easy landing at MAN were a worry for all lo-cos currently operating there. The biggest thing he gave away though, was that the 73s were not the right aircraft at MAN for the missions they're planning to operate.
|Quoting Zkojh (Reply 128):|
how reliable is your sorce I wonder? as close as 'tinytown' WW's base. 5 routes with what a/c?? the 3 that are arriving next year are being split between BHX and EMA,
|Quoting Oly720man (Reply 133):|
Could Bandar/Brunei become a transit stop/stopover destination to Australia, etc, to offer something rather different to the big city experience of SIN and KUL and maybe HKG? But, having said that, it's not as if they really need the money generated by tourists.
|Quoting BlueShamu330s (Reply 131):|
Someone on PPRUNE has just posted more speculation to my previous.......
"Jet2 will start trailling a premium seats only config 757 on flights to NYC an YYZ early nxt year and hope to have regular flights this time nxt year ."
Ey up, Jet2 across t'pond...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VLYpKGVBUg&eurl=

BE confirm new MAN INV service for next summer.
|Quoting Jetset7E7 (Reply 138):|
Thats bad news for Eastern Airways, they don't like competition on routes, hence the NWI route stopping once FlyBe started it, and the STN route stopping once Air Berlin started it. STN route now running again after Air Berlin discontinued their service.
|Quoting Gareth757 (Reply 141):|
Can anyone explain why there are 7 AEA flights into MAN throughout the day on Friday 21st December starting at 03:25am and last one leaving at 00:10?
there is also three the following day! can anyone tell me why?
|Quoting Candid76 (Reply 140):|
It's not a matter of not liking competition. Some routes don't have the quantity of traffic in order to sustain two very different business models - full fare business travel and the low fare model. Some routes do, which is why you will find that there is direct competition between the two carriers on other routes (and not just with BE, look at Aberdeen to Norwich and Aberdeen to Stavanger).
|Quoting Jetset7E7 (Reply 144):|
So you think they will keep MAN-INV?

Quoting Ncfc99 (Reply 145):
How do I find out which runways are beimg used? I want to take some pictures of aircraft landing on the 5's, but I never know when to go.
a) Lick finger
b) Stick in air
c) Judge whether wind coming from North or East
d) Position ones ass accordingly!
