Thanks for telling me. That's another bar-room anecdote I can't use any more
Back on topic then. Sorry all for the deviation.

Does anyone know if AA have canned their Miami service this winter? I used it last year and it was great, with a full load up front, but I can find no evidence of it on the AA website.

One possibility is that the range of dates it operates on is reduced and therefore its not showing up as an option on the dates I'm searching (throughout March and April), but I'm not too sure?

I understand the AA to Miami has been shelved as mostly used by tour companies for linking up with cruise ships departing Miami & Ft Lauderdale. Not a good yield so aircraft employed elsewhere.

That is a shame, like I said earlier, the front of the aircraft was jam packed when I used it, although quite a few were connecting onwards westbound and to the Carribean also.

Have heard that flyBE are looking to announce some more routes from MAN for the summer. Anyone know if this is true?

Would like to see some French regional routes personally!

On 11 Oct 2005 Flybe announced the EXT and BHD routes. In the press release they stated that they intended to make MAN 'a low cost base' and would be announcing 6 new routes over the next two years. Since then the have only started one new route (NWI). Therefore (assuming the bit about the six new routes wasnt a load of Flybe hot air) the remaining 5 new routes should be starting next summer season.

Whilst I too think French routes would be useful, I think Flybe will be more likely to concentrate on Scottish routes as they have recently from BHX. I think they will try to push Eastern off the INV route, and try to muscle in on the Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen routes, as it seems competition from bmi and bacon dosen't bother them.

They said the same when they annouced their Liverpool base (in fact they say similar every time they 'open' a base) and look what happened there.

If you are going to drop someone off at T1 or even to collect someone you know has already landed, and is on the kerbside waiting, then beware - MAN has introduced a new requirement that you must park in the short stay cay park at aminimum charge of 1.80 - or - 3.20 if you stay more than half an hour.

This will be extended to T2 and T3 in the near future.

Another customer service brought to you by MAN in the name of "Security" but which will also co-incidentallyyield a nice little revenue stream

This parking charge is not really a problem for the savvy, do as I do, get your relative to go up to the departure level drop of area, where there is no charge or walk down the tunnel to the station drop off area.

The cost isnt really an issue, its just the principle. I take great pleasure in avoiding even 1.80.

Complaining to MAPLC will fall on deaf ears, they do after all have to pay the upper management their Xmas bonuses. !
