Thanks Scottie and BHX5DME. Good to see growth and I note that STN will overtake MAN in 2019.

Probably not as most of Manchester traffic is in summer so more likeley next winter but there is large growth due at Manchester this year so guess
we will just have to wait and see.

The pattern seems to have emerged that STN is the busier in winter & then MAN is the busier in summer,it will be interesting nonetheless to monitor events going forward as they say.

The last prediction by MAG I recollect was STN to achieve the 30m thruput by the end of the next financial year.

I think STN will have greater growth than MAN in 2019 and will reach 30m sooner.

I am aware the MAN S19 slots are way up but I see a lot of this getting handed back and growth of circa 5%

Which is still a great result.

Easyjet are still working on 17 aircraft from late July and I think 10/15% rise is achievable for MAN and 30 M could happen late summer early autumn

STALL warning during G+B Hydraulic failure

Guys, it's easy to make a stall warning during G+B hydraulic, especially after the gear down, the stall warning over pitch movement gets very sensitive. Any tips to make a clean approach without hearing the nuissance of stall warning?

I checked the first Monday in August and still 15 required and 17 is quite an ask with 6 months to go to the summer school holidays to add 28 frequencies a week. Is the issue available aircraft or the appropriate slots at Manchester and the "away" airport?

I find that actioning the G+N+T procedure with light icing conditions, provides an optimum result.

You might want to post this elsewhere for a more detailed response.

Pete, have you read Severn's post # 2677 above. He reckons a 16th a/c is required the w/c 12 August.
In terms of growth, it ought to be remembered that S18 was only 12 based with the increase to 14 based taking place this winter.

Nevertheless, the implication is that a 17th based frame would mean some new routes so we'll have to wait and see. My understanding is that slots have been allocated for 17 based so presumably MAN have the runway and terminal capacity and parking space.

Thank you for the pointer, with such a large schedule it is hard work to go through all of it quickly but I have found the extra Faro on Monday making 16 aircraft and the extra Palma on a Friday making 16 from the week of the 12th but it is not yet repeated on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday as far as I could tell (still 15) in the last week of August. Also what an odd time to add extra flights just a few weeks before the schools go back unless that is the very earliest they can source the aircraft.

Regarding EZY at MAN I think you will see 18 airframes this summer and 20 in 2020. New routes coming soon are IOM and JER (moved from LPL base) and INN most likely to become an all year round route up to 3 times a week.

What’s MAN’s biggest based carrier if EZY go to 20 based?
What’s Jet2 and Ryanair at?

Also by way of context, what was the biggest the based BA One Eleven or B732 ever got to?

Skip the BA mainline JET base never got more than 6 - Yes 6 residents plus a few outstationed in Glasgow, Belfast and Edinburgh.Plus the upto two Trans Atlantic birds.

When the British Regional joined they added some of the ATPs and Jetstreams another 4 or five .

Easy Ryan and Jet2 all put BA in the shade capacity wise today.

That's right, of the 18 BAC-111-510s delivered, I recall 6 based at MAN and the other 12 at Berlin, with all 18 cycling through MAN for maintenance. When the Berlin base ran down the 12 were scattered around other UK airports. A bunch of other 1-11s were added later, mainly as a result of mergers and take overs, but were based elsewhere (mainly BHX)

When the British Regional joined they added some of the ATPs and Jetstreams another 4 or five .
And who could ever forget BACON and their collection of Dash-8s and Embraers - which unfortunately turned out to be a bit of a pig as far as BA were concerned and ended in tears Then there were the BAe146s, which arrived just as the Euro carriers were all upgrading at MAN to A320s and 737NGs.

Certainly no shortage of attempts over the years by BA with a multitude of aircraft types and brandings, but none of them came close to matching the scale of today's based carriers.

When I worked in MAN Airfield Ops 2001-2005 we regularly parked 20+ BA aircraft overnight. Saturdays were the highest number, when fewer were away on European night-stops. I remember 26 being a regular number on Saturdays - we had to 'smart park' them, wingtips dovetailed, up on the West Apron. It was a motley collection of BAe146, ATP, E145 and a few B734s. There was also the sub-based 767 rotated from LHR doing the New York run, but that wasn't on the ground overnight.

Manchester security got me in a load of bother this am! Gave my son all the worse case scenarios and off he went at 0445 for his 0700 flight. 30 min drive to airport.

0528 "Through security" was the 'wordy' text.

Told him to go and watch the planes. That didn't get a reply

Not 100% sure ,but Jet2 would hit 20 a/c this Summer: 12x B738, 7x B752, A330 (Air Tanker lease)
Ryanair might be at 12 a/c ?

Would be quite surprised if IOM & JER are dropped from LPL, I reckon operating both routes from here and LPL would still work though.
