With 2 class you get held up behind the upper deck economy Pax causing considerable delays to the whole process right the way through to immigration and baggage collection, so from my perspective its not an improvement.

I am however a realist and understand EK cannot keep 3 class aircraft flying on the route just to speed up my exit from MAN !
Maybe a bit of light at the end of the tunnel it has been rumoured that premium economy will be upstairs thus fewer seats and even now these seats are extra cost and often go spare although I am talking BHX not man but well worth the extra. I am not sure if premium is confirmed for 2 class. The day I flew there were more in business than economy upstairs it was fantastic but that was from BHX.

Interesting Manchester getting an upgrade on the very the morning service BHX couldn't sustain a 360 or 428 seat 777.
