1st A350-1000 due at MAN Saturday, for those interested, by all accounts it will only fit on 1 stand at the moment, so that could be interesting!

Manchester Statistics - October 2018

Destinations that are either new (no passengers since my records started in January 2005), or have not been served for a number of years - if the latter then the month and year of the last service is shown.

No new destinations were served in October 2018

Million passenger routes (Rolling annual figures)
Amsterdam - 1,024,292 passengers
Dubai - 1,015,907 passengers

Two domestic statistics are currently missing from the CAA report for October.
Belfast City, and Inverness are yet to provide figures

Total passengers for these routes in 2017 were 24,847 - although the CAA site currently shows 66 passengers to Belfast City in October 2018.

Moving monthly and annual figures - based on CAA statistics/MAG statistics

Monthly passengers - 2,547,855 +5.96%
Annual Total - 19,123,190 +0.73%%
Moving Annual Total - 28,033,344 +1.06%

I can't see how piers B and C from T1 can remain, from the pictures shown Pier D on T2 will extend out to the satellite of Pier C on T1. From looking at Google Earth the centreline of T2 would extend directly to the main building of T3, therefore once T1 is demolished there is considerable space to extend the main building of T3 and that 2 additional piers can be extended from T3 parallel with those of T2. Dreams, I know but logically could it work?

I think that was the prefered option but was deamed too expensive and disruptive.

Laudamotion

Saw a post on another forum a couple of weeks ago saying that VIE-MAN would be added for summer 2019 operating Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday, however I can't find anything on the website.

anyone know more?

With three good airlines already on the route, would we need a 4th with what 10k pax per month? Highly doubt it

Air France re-absorbing Joon back into mainline.

So MAN will retain AF.

Magnifique! I remember the last ever AF Caravelle operating AF962/963 in March 1981 as the type was retired from the fleet. Ear-piercing RR Avons and that classic paint scheme which was never updated like the B727s which replaced it. AF are one of MAN's longest continuously-running flag carriers. Vive la France mais 'Non' a Joon! Pardon my French.

Good to see United finally upsizing its Newark service for next summer, with a 767-300ER from 30 March, and 767-400ER from 22 May.

15-20 years ago flying business class ex MAN could be a relatively lonely experience.....
Twice in the last month, I've not been able to get seats up front on the flights I wanted due to them all being sold.....
I'll leave it there.

Interesting observation. On one hand business are purported to be reducing business-class travel, yet business class cabins seem full. There are very limited seats for points redemption (BA release just 2 per long-haul flight). Is it the premium leisure traveller? Iím thinking of the 50/60+ with paid off mortgages, defined benifit pensions and kids through uni?

Will be interesting to know which flights?

I'm sure the massive development of the city centre has increased the number of business types in and out of the area - did you know....there are over 60 cranes up in the city centre Crane spotting

I'll just say that one was going east and one was going west. I was surprised at the Westbound tbh but then I reflected for a while and realized that actually there are pretty limited options going that way in the winter months for full service flying. If the airport is to be taken seriously as a true gateway going forward, that will have to change. It's alright saying 'we have non-stop flights to Los Angeles' but if they only go for a few weeks in the summer, they're not much better than holiday charter flights

Unscientific observations but I would say yes there are a few wealthy leisure flyers up front but there always has been. You'll find that front cabins on the full service airlines are still predominently business orientated if you end up chatting in the bars on those airlines that have social areas. It does seem that Manchester (the place) is booming though so no doubt that is a contributory factor..

The number of cranes is always a good indicator of a booming city https://www.intelligenthq.com/social...onomic-growth/

100% agree - last month, managed to get £385 return on NZ and the trains behaved, but would happily pay the extra to avoid the stress.
