LOT, Tarom , Alitalia, South African, Qantas come to mind. Would have to guess LOT are the most likely candidate out of that bunch...but perhaps there are others?
Alitalia have apparently applied for slots to Milan Linate on a daily basis for the winter.

Correct about Alitalia.

Level on MAN-SZG and Spicejet on MAN-BOM were the only other things of note (and two new easyJet routes, both twice weekly).

I’ve just noticed Frankfurt to Manchester route is ceasing! Every flight I’ve taken from Frankfurt has been full. Marvellous.

I presume you are referring to Ryanair then I agree with your comment. You must also remember that the route is well served by Lufthansa and there is no way that I can see them closing the route.

Do you have any more info at that Level route? Aircraft type (I assume A320/321) timings etc.

LH will increase MUC-MAN to 4 daily this winter, FRA-MAN remain the same.
In general, beside London area, Germany-England is not very well covered by LCC. Berlin might be the best option to go to and onwards with train southwards.

I think you might find that any subscription is rather expensive - ACL reports are aimed at the aviation industry.

No, Frankfurt is still being served from Manchester, no need to mess about going via Berlin or taking the Eurostar.

MAN T2 a complete joke.

I have used T2 three times in the last month. Roads coned off for no apparant reason, the drop of area on theground floor with many check in desks on the first floor. The up escalator, was out of service AGAIN (has it ever worked recently). Several travelators were out of service to the gates down by the dustbins
Walking between T2 and T1 4t of travelators weare also U/S.
What a complete V expensive shambles MAG has produced.

T1-T2 4 travelators is a good day.

Meanwhile today :-

Manchester Airport delays Ė Sam Allardyce among hundreds of passengers stuck after being unable to check-in due to IT failure. Delays running into hours.

With the fiasco today (again) is it not time that the airport was privatised?

Why, do these events not happen at 'privatised' airports? Most have at LHR at some time or another...

The difference with Manchester is that these things occur far more frequently than at other airports. Every time I have passed through in recent years at least one or two travelators and a similar number of escalators have been out of action. There has been regular discussion about this on the Manchester thread since I joined PPRUNE in 2005...... nothing seems to have changed and no effort seems to have been made to improve this situation.

Possibly, but the up escalator @T2 has been U/S for a four weeks. Incompetence personified.
