I wouldn’t count your chickens on that just yet.

And the same for Hainan, but hopefully such routes will become firmly established and be part of Manchester's network, even if an airline falls on troubled times.

This is the third time I think that this route has been announced...

I hope it happens, as it will put pressure on easyJet to reduce prices at time of high demand. At the moment the difference between winter and summer fares can be three fold.

Scottie Dog,

Why can't we copy or re-post the pictures?

I, and all the other rate-payers in Greater Manchester are shareholders in the airport.

Oh,

And East Midlands, and Stansted.

I did read on another forum that the inbound on Monday was 112 and outbound 249.

That seems pretty close enough to full on the way back to Mumbai. Pretty poor showing on the outbound, though.

1st flight is very rarely full but to have those loads on the return flight is excellent

I suspect the return was full of freeloaders and comp tickets as is usually the case.

From the Press Release:

Naresh Goyal, Chairman of Jet Airways, said:
“We are happy to be the first airline to offer a non-stop, premium service between Mumbai and Manchester. The UK is a very important destination for Jet Airways and with the addition of Manchester we hope to make a further contribution to boosting tourism and trade between the two countries.”
Jet announced its Manchester-Mumbai route in May as a four-times-a-week service. Demand has been so strong, the airline increased its frequency to five-times-a-week before it had even launched, with the first flights leaving Manchester fully occupied.

Scottie, sorry the box was full. I've been off the MegaHertz for a while.

I see your pictures also appear on 'SkyscraperCities', but without the sharing caveat? If you work for MAG, surely you pictures are authorised by MAPLC? If not, are you taking 'snaps' without official authorisation?......Naughty.

Request respected.

Oh, and also from SSC, I take it that 'Wing Tips' is LAX-LHR'?

Scottie Dog does include the caveat on Skyscapercity for all the PlaneTalk posts - the typical wording over there is " This week's update courtesy of PlaneTalk Issue **. Please do not copy or reproduce on any other forum or thread "

However posts which show pictures from "our friend" are not marked with the same request.

I suspect that although permission has been given to post the details from PlaneTalk, they are intended more for airport staff, and not general release to the public,so it was requested that the caveat was added.

I think LAX used to post as World Rep on the Skyscraper City Manchester forum, but it's been some years since he's posted.

October stats:
Can't see it mentioned on here but Passengers were up 6% in October'18 vs. the same month last year.
This was the first month in which Monarch were not in the comparative figures.
Movements increased 2% but freight was down 3%.

Too much good news for some....

Jet2 are pushing a whole load of flights to T2, presumably using up Monarchs empty gate slots.

To support our expanded operation, from 1st February 2019 all Jet2.com flights for Alicante, Almeria, Antalya, Barcelona, Bodrum, Izmir, Krakow, Malta, Menorca, Naples, Nice, Pisa, Pula and Verona will arrive and depart using Terminal 2 (T2).

This is in addition to all Jet2.com flights for Lanzarote, Malaga, Majorca and Tenerife which have flown to and from T2 since April 2018.

All other Jet2.com flights will continue to operate at Terminal 1 (T1).
