Im not sure the reason for such a long turn, especially being jut an A320, but, needless to say there should be little excuse for a delay leaving MAN.

Are the Spanish resort hey-days coming back?

Just fiddling about with various sites, and noticed there are no less than 12 flights to Palma on Saturdays this summer! There are also up to 5 flights on other days of the week too.

Certainly spoiled for choice.

If you refer to the last Annual Results MAG are making a lot of money from car parking. Use of aircraft stands for valet parked vehicles will mean a lot of income for little investment, and is reversible for 2014 if necessary.

The problems will start when outbound flights are delayed for any reason and there are no remotes available, the taxiway system will quickly become gridlocked.

Personally I am not a fan of this idea as I think the risks are too great but if I was a beancounter...

Yes but winter 2013 season starts October 26th to which Oslo and Stavanger were not bookable, but now bookable past Oct 26th so therefore for sale for the winter 2013 season....

LAX-LHR. Re extensive charter list.

Think we also have to remember that MAN are loosing fair number of based units and plane size reductions from TCX,TOM to name just two.

As a spotter Im all for more foreign charters over a based uk unit though.

TOM based has not altered much to be honest. Some B757 replaced with B737 and A321 gone, abut they had to be replaced at some point.

TCX remains at 9 which was same as last year, and for the low costs, based unit count has gone up by 5. (actually gone up by 9 this summer as QS basing 2 B767, Germania basing 1 A319 and Avon Express basing 1 A320.)

Still a lot based, along with the extra charters, means one busy summer.

IT

LAX_LHR

What is the TCX & TOM 757 count this year compared to last. The link you provided the other day is excellent very but bit vague re TOM & TCX other than what you have stated that the base count has remained the same.

Also has there been much movement with Monarch between IT and schedule or is that roughly the same?

I have noticed that the Swiss is still 2 x F100 plus one Airbus in the week for most of the summer and Saturday evening in May and June is not showing, I assume that is down to ZRH charges?

Ryanair is 6 based with a large amount of non based flights.

Easyjet is 5 A320 and 3 A319 and only a few non based flights.

A correction to an earlier post as it seems my finger slipped, Travel Service (QS) is 2x B737 and not the B767 as I posted.

Flybe is something like 9 or 10 based, but I'm not 100%.
