Yes reported here and on numerous other sites by our good friend LHR-LAX and his other pseudonyms!

However worthy of update thanks

Still it remains at random times on differing days and a rather poor choice for longer haul connections beyond Barajas compared to neighbouring Portugal Lisbon and TAP a market now with multiple dailies and three other competitors !

Okay for onwards to Canaries and Balearics however really why does IAG even bother in that marker I ask myself ?

This is my final planned MANTP Update before the Christmas/New Year break. As always I am indebted to the MANTP Team for supplying the weekly update, without their help the information I post would have been far leaner - if only I hear some say!!



















Finally can I wish everybody a very happy Christmas. May it bring not only happiness but also peace and tranquility to this troubled world.

Thanks scottiedog for taking the time to post this, much appreciated and intriguing to see how the master plan is being put into action. People wonít ever be happy on here unless itís to slag off MAN or to get personal with other users. Hope you have a good Xmas and same to everyone else

Please stop spamming the forum with unhelpful messages. The posts are appreciated by many, have been going on since well before you joined PPRuNe and are a good historical record of what is happening.

Carry on the good work Scottie - good to see what is going in from the comfort of my armchair instead of being involved in the thick of it.

Well said Suzeman. I think it was that guy who referred to MAN as just a local airport.

Yes, Scottie, those updates are appreciated by many.

'The ayes have it' as Mr Speaker would say.

Thank you for your replies and I'm delighted to say that, unless otherwise told to by a moderator, I will continue to post the updates - albeit with duplicates from the previous week excluded.

As I said previously the next update will not be until the New Year.

Not so ho ho ho

I do wonder why this airport continues to shoot itself in the foot.
left T1 on Sunday 22nd December, security area A closed to all non priority pax.
T1 area B security- only two lanes open- sigh
a most unpleasant experience for people leaving the UK- just leaves a bad impression of a disorganised ďon the cheapĒ couldnít care less airport(25 minutes to get through)
itís a grim area in security B even if you could sail through.

I went through T3 3 times this month each time getting through security took less than 10 minutes.

How can Malta be in there with the worst? In my experience it is spotlessly clean, has very efficient and friendly security and a good range of shops and food outlets. There are delays at passport control sometimes when several UK flights land at the same time but that is because this silly country is not part of the Schengen agreement. There can be no doubt at all about MAN being one of the worst anywhere. Arrivals onto pier B is like being transported back in time to a 1960's general hospital.

I do rather hope the newly built section and eventual modernisation (albeit architecturally drab) of the whole T2 proves better than the imagery conveys.

Perhaps had MAG not been in pursuit of other costly airfields, funding for a more futuristic mega terminal (ala LHR T5) could have potentially placed MAN into a different league
