What airport they fly in to is irrelevant - as they'll be boarding a pre-booked bus and will be whisked off to the first of their many destinations - probably Edinburgh to start anyway, then on to other destinations around Scotland.

Any business travel, or Scottish tourists heading to Beijing will just be a happy extra, but certainly not the main market for this flight. As such, I don't think a single central airport would make much difference in this case.

As for the United / Delta examples - i'm not convinced. Look at Manchester, with its much larger catchment, yet it's still narrowbody central to the US. With the exception of the United flight which upgraded this year, it's all 757s. These aircraft are perfect for operating flights to the UK, freeing up widebodies for flights further in to Europe.
I cannot think of any narrow body flights to the U.S. from Manchester. You are very out of date.

it's A330 and 747 to Atlanta and New York in combinations and A330 to the remaining airports of Boston, Las Vegas and LA.

MANCHESTER has just two US carrier operated flights a day since Delta seceded Atlanta and JFK to their UK branch with a mix of A332 AND 744 aircraft .

UNITED are operating daily Newark on a refurbished 763 at the moment whilst American have canned JFK (an ongoing process from them in dehubbing New York to focus on a very few major O&D markets) and as of this month reduced capacity on their remaining Philadelphia daily having switched to a now rather old and on its last legs 763 operation though the summer. Itís supposed to switch to a 788 Dreamliner later in the year however I await with baited breath as these are in short supply and mostly at Chicago right now.

I believe recently United ended the last 757 flight to Manchester and replaced it with a 767 300/400 to operate the Newark route. Manchester is now all widebody across the Atlantic including Canada.

The 787 has been pushed back to January 2020.

Crew need to man the doors if refuelling so it's just easier to get them all off.
Pretty sure it's mandated under DfT rules that they need to reclear security before they can depart on a double drop run. It's why they really went out of fashion.Watched a 1/2 load on an Air Transat A330 sleepily troop off at Glasgow, go up a flight of stairs through gate security and then join the queue to reboard the same aircraft bound for MAN.

incorrect, 1000 comes back on 1st Dec, before that the 900 operates.

It's whatever equipment is available, mostly changes are due to AOG's, the flt is still sold as a 900.

Just looked at flights on Ryanair to Frankfurt and unfortunately it appears like they will end the route from October.

Report here from the local rag

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co...rport-16299154

Suggested elsewhere that a power surge has disabled some or all of the fuelling system

That would deoend on how the Belgian authorities want to play it....itís down to them as to whether a complete rescreened is required for transit passengers at one of their airports, not the UKís DfT.

The DfT here in the UK stipulate that everyone on an aircraft departing the UK must clear UK security. Hence the transiting SQ pax disembarking and clear security before re-boarding. If, for example, the SQ routes MAN-LHR-SIN then passengers wouldn't need to clear security in LHR because they have already been subjected to the UK security process. For those of you who connect with BA from MAN through LHR T5 you'll know that you don't clear security again because you cleared it in MAN. If you transfer to another LHR terminal you clear security again but presumably that is because you fall into the channel of other transferring pax from destinations outside the UK.

Within Europe there isn't always that stipulation and that is why in the parts of many European airports that service European flights, arriving and departing passengers mix.
