It's funny that LAX-LHR couldn't wait to announce BHX and BRS had lost their flights on another forum yet remained ominously quiet about MAN's losses!

could it be that he's actually away travelling and therefore offline? Please don't always think the worst if people, there can be occasions when you can't make a response for a day of two.

As they say "take shelter and prepare for inbound attack".

chinapattern:

1- Why do you feel the need to belittle me at every oppertunity you can. Your obsession is just creepy, sad, pathetic and just down right weird. Move on, you look a fool.

2- it may have escaped your attention that I havenít actually posted on here for a while, even with good news to report. But, letís not let reality get in the way of your chance to be a keyboard warrior eh? I will continue to avoid posting on here in the main, but felt it was appropriate to come on and call you out for the sad little individual you are.

3- I did actually report the Cityflyer MAN news via other channels. But again, letís not have the truth inconvenience your sad little tirade.

4- Funny how you donít lambast your little flag boy for BHX for doing what you accuse me of, isnít it? By that, I mean funny how Ian F/BHX5DME, and the fact he only seems interested in this thread when there is bad news to report. But no, of course you wouldnít call out your little poster boy, would you?

5- instead of pestering me and obsessing, why not worry about your own little airport. Yes, MAN has lost a few flights from BA. Least we still have them. Howís BA working out for BHX? Howís your TATL? Any luck getting an Easyjet base yet? Ryanair expansion? Icelandair? FlyOne? Air India reductions? Too soon?

hopefully this post stays on long enough for you to read it, I have no doubt at all that it will eventualły get removed. Iím not even that fussed if I get banned off here. The fact thatís the level of discussion has sunk to Ďhow can I mock LAX_LHR todayí or fictional moans about the airport with some ridiculous sentiment, seems I wonít be missing much!

over and out.

Never fails to amaze me the level of petty point scoring. For the record LAX is a advocate of regional aviation in general. You will find posts of his in other threads of new services. Some are just overly touchy when news isnt so positive, but its not LAX's fault that certain airports have unfortunatley more bad news than good. LAX is an asset to this site.

Whilst my experiences of MAN that I have reported on here have been quite negative in the last 18 months, LAX_LHR always tries to put a positive spin on matters, I have to agree with him that the quality of some of the recent posts on this thread leave a great deal to be desired, and in some cases are solely personal attacks.

In my opinion, it's time for a change on this thread, and I would urge all those posting here to think carefully if their post is really (1) constructive (2) informative and (3) adds anything to what others have posted. If it does not meet one of these criteria, I would suggest that this is not the place to express their views.

Come on guys, make tis an interesting and dynamic thread, and not one that risks the mods repeating their earlier actions of closing the MAN thread down.

My airport is better than yours is a really petty and sorry state of affairs. This isnít anything against LAX I should add.

Sorry that LAX has decided not to post, he was always there with useful information and updates, not sure where else he posts hopefully he will have a change of heart and continue on here.

Even though I rarely post, Iíve been reading this thread daily for god knows how many years, being based at Manchester.

I always look forward to the posts off the regulars, mainly LAX_LHR with updates on new routes for the airport, which we all like to see.

Shame the minority have to spoil it with silly comments. Weíre all adults here

For my two penn'orth, LAX-LHR lacks balance in his posts. He has inside knowledge which allows him to post details of new or additional services, but fails to balance that with details of reducing or ceasing services. I know he feels that is not his function, but he then comes across as a happy clappy cheerleader and not an informed contributor.

and another one who selectively misreads posts so they can get their little dig in. Funny that I’ve just looked back at a few of my posts and they indeed report bad news. AA to ORD going and VLM collapsing thus not starting MAN are 2 recent ones for a start, not my fault that MAN seems to be enjoying more good news than bad news route wise, or is the green eyed monster clouding things a little perhaps?. And as I’ve said, I report both good and bad news as regularly as required on other channels.

Another reason my posts could seem to lack ‘balance’ Is that others, usually from other airports that have been named previously, are very very quick off the draw when it comes to bad news, thus I miss the chance to report it so. If those same people shared the same enthusiasm and speed to post the good news, well, we could all live as one happy sappy family couldnt we? Your rock awaits your return......

(as you can tell by the tone of my posts, I just don’t care anymore, why should I have to sit here and take this sh*te nonsense purely because I post good news.....)

Just in case anyone doesnít know, the new A555 link road Man Airport >Hazel Grove opened last Monday. Great if you live near the Hazel Grove area but for those of us in N Derbyshire/S Yorks itís not much of a help because the 6 miles+ from the A555/A6 junction to the northern end of the Chapel bypass down the A6 is still a real pain. Itís c 6.2 miles but took me 22 mins last Wed evening

End of Scottish Half-term flights using English based aircraft to run extra's and then usually to return to the English base to operate the outbound extra English half-term flights.

LY-NVX was also used from Glasgow and then returned to BHX to operate an extra English half-term to Tenerife although Birmingham and Solihull schools break up next Friday but Coventry and some others are this week. October half-term in the Midlands has been spread over 3 weeks this year instead of 1 or 2 and this will help passenger figures no-end but I am not sure if it is the same for the North West
