@ cunard excellent reply for MAN but i didn't see you mention Tarom, as a kid (up to 15/16 years old )back in the late 70's ?early 80's i saw Tarom aircraft at MAN ,TU 154? sorry i know you put in a lot of work finding the airlines that served my old home city ,just another one to add,
PS i used to love when fog hit london ,braniiff &,Pam Am 747 sp were my favs i remember one day different aircraft parked all over the place there was so many and not enough gates
Thanks for your comments regarding my post but just to let you know......it took me approximately thirty minutes to write that post.....I didn't research it, it wasn't hardwork......all I did was to remember the airline's by country basis and typed them alphabetically.
Thankfully I have a very good memory and Geography has always been my strongest subject. I don't forget anything except for people's names including close associates which can be very embarrassing at times. I can't even remember family names especially aunties, uncles, niece's and nephews which can be quite awkward at family gatherings.
Regarding Tarom..... it's already been mentioned upthread that I had missed that particular airline.
My comprehensive list was only for airline's that previously offered scheduled services from MAN.
Tarom flew to MAN on a charter basis only with a variety of aircraft including the Boeing 707, IL-62, ROMBAC 1-11, TU-154, flights operated to Constanta in Romania.
The same applies to Balkan Bulgarian who used to fly charter flights between Manchester and Burgas and Varna in Bulgaria with a mix of TU-134 and TU-154.
As these two airline's only offered charter flights from MAN rather than scheduled flights that's the reason they were not included in my list.
If you look on FLICKR there are literally hundreds of excellent photos of aircraft at MAN on diversions during the 1960/70/80/90's including the Braniff and Pan Am B747SP's that you have quoted.
For anyone unfamiliar with FLICKR I thoroughly recommend the site as the selection of photos are excellent and are very rare, in some respects they far outway those found here on a.net.
