With what equipment? The A340s have returned to lessor. Going to use the A32x via Istanbul?

Would be great if AirBlue did come back!

Dibbs on a certain Bulgarian 332 one would expect .

Especially since BH are pretty much keeping Air Blue in business right now.

BE and CX have signed a codeshare deal that's effective10th December. Another long-haul airline using the BE hub to feed their services....imagine the irony should BA decide that they wanted a piece of the MAN action and decided that getting a codeshare agreement in place with BE would be "useful" given that could/should have made better use of what was built for them.


There's been a meeting/forum on 2nd Dec discussing aviation policy where the city council leader has denounced the LHR/LGW plans instead of regional expansion whereas it's a case of both are needed with the following proviso: what ought to have been said is that there's no use in crying about of lack of slots for launching routes to the unserved destinations that are apparently needed for the UK when there what appears to be an hourly shuttle to JFK from LHR when the regions have to make do with a daily service.... can't the poor diddums in southeast England wait a couple of hours in case they miss their flight or why not force these airlines to use larger equipment to carry the same number of passengers but at a lesser frequency to enable these wanted new routes to be established.

I think BE is starting to find its new position in the UK market. Rather than just an alternative to the train, it is now becoming a major feeder airline.

They are also a feeder airline for EI too as of last month.

Semi interesting analysis of BA domestic transfer traffic at LHR. Despite the large portfolio of routes available here, the analysis says that 60% of BA's passengers are transferring! Seems like a lot of scope to broaden the network further, assuming that we're not talking a handful of passenger going to every available destination at LHR.

This is probably a similar level to flights to FRA, AMS and MUC to name just three, and as long as those services exist, there will be transferring traffic through LHR too.

Whereas there will be passengers going to every destination, BA will attract plenty going to JNB, HKG (think we know this already!), BOM, DEL, HND/NRT, and a significant number going to North America, given the cost and unavailability of reasonably priced ex-MAN seats.

It's why it's remarkable There should be no real need for passengers to use LHR/FRA/AMS etc to go to any of our current long-haul destinations. If they are doing so because it 's cheaper, then it must hold up that the MAN yield has to be higher than people expect if the current routes are sustainable.

That Adam Jupp being "Adam is MEN Media's head of business". Hopefully there'll be a follow-up feature to the story already on the Evening News website. States expecting 110,000 passengers to use the service which is in the region of 264 passengers per flight. Capacity is 340 per flight so roughly 77.7% loads but we've got to hope the business + premium economy sectors sell well.

JFK is all about frequency, BA fly X amount of flight per day, say on a hour between them and AA as they know they can fill them from the front back. If BA or any other airline thought they could do them same from MAN they would. A 3rd and even 4th Runway at LHR is what the economy and the country needs. Airlines need profitable routes to cover the losses associated with developing a new route from scratch.

This is a classic misunderstanding of markets. If I as a regular Delta traveller want to fly to JFK I'm not planning on going on the DL65 and changing at ATL! It's all about loyalty and alliance membership coupled with a good hard product. With AA using 26 year old B763s on MAN-ORD/JFK, I might prefer a B77W with a better hard product out of LHR if I am going to JFK later in the day or LAX/RDU/MIA/ORD rather than the early MAN single daily rotation. David is describing an ideal but with MAN as a spoke into hubs that need feed, of course BA/KL/LH will always take pax away from the long haul MAN offering. That's business.

Chinese route announcement soon


"Cornish said the first ever non-stop direct link between Manchester and Beijing is to be announced within two to three months, with the likelihood of non-stop flights to Shanghai waiting in the wings...
about the proposed five-times a week flight to the Chinese capital, saying talks are at an advanced stage. Although he declined to name the operator of the new service he said formal confirmation will be made "within two to three months" with the new service operational in 2015.

He said a direct flight to Shanghai from Manchester is likely to follow the Beijing link."

Right. Who will be the Shanghai-MAN operator given that no-one but everyone knows it Hainan for Beijing. Seems to be like leaping before we can walk!?

So they can hardly say its the fault of the local market for not supporting a route if they are putting tatty product here. They wouldn't do that for LHR so what gives them the right to do it for MAN?

Great news. Beijing likely to be Hainan Airlines and Shanghai most likely to be with China Eastern I reckon - I mean, who else could do it? VS?

BKK, DEL and BOM are likely to happen at some stage in the future. I do not understand why India isn't served directly from MAN given the huge sub-continent population in the North of England.

DTW and NRT are less likely. DTW doesn't fit into the MAN network as DL have US connections covered through ATL. NRT-MAN directly doesn't have much of a market and what market there is, is covered by QR, EK, EY, SQ, CX, BA, VS etc.

By all accounts, yields to BKK are crap from Europe. It's a leisure destination primarily. It's the same story for India, although I believe MAN - DEL/BOM is more possible in future. Yields to India are trashed by such fierce competition between the MEB3, and probably TK.

The Indian population is far bigger in the East and West Midlands than in the North West and Yorkshire.

TK upgrade a lot of flights currently to A332 due to overselling, indeed over the xmas period on some days both flights are due to be ops by A332.

The 3rd flight was on the cards due to extremely good loads.

Article here stating that MAN wants to add to the west coast of the USA, most likely to LAX. Which airline would most likely operate it? AA DL UA or VS? I can't imagine it would be a priority for AA or UA but I reckon DL/VS could operate it on VS metal? Perhaps 4 x weekly to LAX and 3 x weekly to SFO? On a B787? Thoughts?

I would imagine it would be either DL or UA to LAX or SFO respectively.

I think a UA 788 would be ideal for the route. It is a huge hole in the MAN route network and one that I think would thrive!

All these extra/new flights is great news, however, in the summer months this year and last, both inside and outside the terminals were busy enough, so with more flights and passengers next year, expansion surely has to be close to being announced and started?!

AA are being a little conservative at the moment and they haven't tried out many new routes to Europe recently. Their focus has been on Asia. Of course this is not a full reason why they wouldn't but if AA operated LAX-MAN it would surprise me.

DL because of the new Virgin partnership.

UA because they are keep to operate new thinner routes on their 788's.

I believe an announcement is on the cards soon regarding Airport expansion, as apparently the plans have now been finalised. An expansion and remodelling will take years so the next few summers will be just as chaotic. They are building a new 4 lane security channel at ground level check in near Jet2, this should atleast take some strain off T1 security.

I always thought a better plan would have been to start the major works when passenger numbers had dropped with the consolidation in the charter market and the recession taking its toll. That would have limited disruption and we could have had a world class facility up and running by now. Whereas we have an ageing site with a poorly organised mish mash T1 at its core that is unfit for purpose most of the time and more importantly its at bursting point. Its great news we are getting more flights, but i struggle to see how MAN can successfully cope with them at the moment.

I know one could argue why would a business invest heavily and spend money in a bad recession, but i think an airport and organisation such as MAN/MAG could see the airport is a long time viable success that worth money spent on it even if the country was in the middle of a recession crisis/

The trouble is, the shareholders are councils, and the councils have had budgets slashed from all angles in recent years so im sure this plays into it too.

Thanks. I do think DL/VS metal would be better suited to this route anyway, but I don't think AA are being THAT conservative at the moment. After all, they have just announced JFK-BHX and JFK-EDI. East coast operations to Europe on a B757 is a different story I admit.

UA - not quite sure what your sentence above was meant to be saying, but surely MAN-LAX IS a thinner route and therefore ideal for a 788?

Quoting Danfearn77 (Reply 92):
The trouble is, the shareholders are councils, and the councils have had budgets slashed from all angles in recent years so im sure this plays into it too.

This is exactly one of the reasons why it would never happen. You basically wrote a lot of sense but contradicted yourself with even more sense.

In an ideal world, yes an airport would be refurbished during a period of low demand but the budgets would never be approved because that's business.

There was no guarantee that the economy was going to pick up in the way that it did. Air Traffic is booming once again but in the depth of a recession its is nothing but a far-fetched dream.

I'd put money on Thomas Cook

I'd take them more seriously as a Transatlantic scheduled carrier if they included a genuine business cabin of say 8 or 12 lie flat seats in addition to their premium economy..........

Good news. I was wondering if they'd give MAN a go.

I'm surprised too. If it can work from BHX, I'm sure it can work from MAN. Although I think the Indian population is larger in the BHX catchment area than it is from MAN? Correct me if I'm wrong...

May be Thai can introduce a 1 stop option to BKK via DEL or BOM. This might work, similar to the SQ 1 stop option.
