The word anal you used in a comment on 23rd July 2011 mickyman - that's all.

It looks like the best in class label for Emirates at MAN is fading a bit. Emirates has still free seats. EK17/18 has been in the low 300 at times as well as filled to the rim in September. Lucky for Emirates, seats "in front" are filled and only the Ys "in the back" are missing. In other words MAN is missing Y passengers - dare I say the word reccession? The average distance flown for flights at MAN have gone down, and traffic wise (number of passengers x flown distance) MAN has practically been at a stand still this summer. The three big gainers at MAN in August were Spain (+82,649 passenger), Italy (+37,248 passengers) and Germany (+23,055). The three big loosers the same month were Cyprus (-26,509 passengers), Greece (-15,966 passengers) and United States of America (-15,837 passengers). In a different forum I quote the title of a novel written by Peter Robinson, and looks like I need to do this here too - and the novel was named: "The Summer That Never Was".

Good loads on A380 today just shy 400 inbound and just under 500 out
Don`t forget everybodies favourite tax APD which is destroying long distant holidays.

147 free seats in and 32 free seats out to be exact.

There hasn't been a huge change for the APD since last year. For a flight to US it was last year 60 and this year 65 in Y.

Is it me or has the on time performance gone out the window recently? DXB seems to be bursting at the seams!

I've look at the departure times from DXB the last month and to me only five flights pops up with an up to one hour delay - 2x EK (13 Oct and 30 Sep), 1x EK19 (28 Sep) and 2x EK21 (20 Sep and 16 Sep). Times used came from data.flight24.com.

LN-KGL maybe not but the airlines like TCX and MON are pulling virtually
out of long haul leaving Thomson who have also less long haul aircraft
which has taken 2 years to filter down

With the provisional September report released, here are an updated graph I did show you in #111:



The below average growth for Emirates at MAN continued in September with 2.9 percentage points lower growth than the average for scheduled international flights.

The top five gaining countries in September were:
1 Italy = +32,804 passengers
2 Germany = +20,764 passengers
3 France = + 11,327 passengers
4 United Arab Emirates = +8,635 passengers
5 Norway = +7,938 passengers

The top country in August, Spain, is down at the 12th place in September.

If we look at the loosers, three of them are the Eastern Mediterranean countries Turkey, Greece and Cyprus. These three together with Sitzerland and Sweden form the five loosers in September.

If yield info was available then I am sure your negative bent towards
Emirates at Manchester would be put into context.

Do you have comparisons with all Emirates stations in the UK that you could share ?
Perhaps a graph showing the numbers on all flights in the UK
from the various airports for the last 17or12 month period? followed by the available seats per station?

I would be obliged if you could - thanks

It must be taken into account that EK have moved to a three class configuration on all MAN services which may reduce the overall seat capacity and in response to growing demand for F and C seats in this market. This was a major driver in the decision to deploy the A380 two years ago.

Reguler flyer on EK for a long number of years and have to say the planes I have travelled on have always been full in Business over this last few months indeed the questuion asked by one fellow passenger at the bar was what recession ?, as First and Business were all full. I have even had to put in stops in DXB hotels as could not get on flight making decent connections due to flight being full !. I do know that the early morning flight is not so busy as a rule - yet. Also bare in mind cargo that can be shifted on a lightly loaded a/c helps cover costs. Do not think EK will lose much sleep over keyboard strategists on this site talking about Man load factors in my experiance.

EXS809 circling

EXS809 MAN-AGP departed before, got onto UN862 then did a 180 and is currently circling at FL110 over LBA, no emergency squawk too.

The EXS809 MAN-AGP operated by Boeing 737-300, G-CELJ this afternoon has landed safely on LBA's runway 14. The pilot is quoted on another site as complaining of engine vibrations to ATC.
Hence the reason i guess to divert to LBA is for engineering purposes?

Sure they have done it before. Have had to send routes to Flightradar24 which originally were MAN-IVL or IVL-MAN.
