And unless they're using T3, which is highly unlikely, it's almost guaranteed, now they spread over T1 and T2
Even worse, both operate an A332 (granted LS's is leased)

Panic ensues (grabs the popcorn)

Two new long haul two lovely colour schemes and 1 more to go, be it Thai or Hainan both great schemes so much better than these eurowhite bland schemes
Manchester arrivals in the early morning are getting like a mini Heathrow with long haul after long haul and long may it continue.

Long haul airline 3 is going to be a few weeks away yet, the airport will space out the next announcements to help the exposure of the first two routes announced.

What a week! You wait ages for a bus and then two come along.....

Great work by the PR people to really push the news.

Amazing comments about Jet2/Jet Airways. Wow! I personally got confused with Thomas Cook and Thomson so they renamed the latter TUI UK just for me

STAR ALLIANCE

Star Alliance are now building up a good network from MAN. Would it make sense, or even be feasible, for Star Alliance to operate from one terminal & to have their own decent Star Alliance shared lounge.?
Aegean, Adria, Air Canada (Rouge), Austrian, Brussels Airlines, Ethiopian, Lufthansa, SAS, Singapore, Swiss, TAP, Turkish, United ....and maybe even Thai.

ONE WORLD
Their presence is a little thinner with American, BA, Cathay, Qatar,Finnair & Iberia, would they not be better together also?

SKYTEAM
There is only Air France & KLM ( & Delta if they came back-Virgin are not in any alliance)

Long haul non aligned airlines: Emirates, Etihad, Hanain, Oman, PIA, Saudia & Jet Airways.

Is the TP an opportunity to bring these alliances together?
Certainly need to up their lounge offerings throughout the TP if they plan to sustain premium pax on these long haul services.

Saudia are SkyTeam. I'd imagine that all current (& future) Star, OneWorld and SkyTeam carriers will all be in the new terminal eventually. What they then decide to have shared desks/lounges is another question.

STAR ALLIANCE - didn't they try this with the 'minihub' during the 1990s? Admittedly *A was much smaller back then.

Yep TUI are flying daily dreamliners out of Manchester and LGW and Thomas cook are not far behind now. Its replaced Sharm and is as cheap as going to the Costas. We are trying Puerto Vallarta this year, one TUI 787 from LGW and Man means its not overcrowded with Brits

Taken yesterday on my monthly walk-about of the MAN-TP project.


General view, as always, across from the top of T1 multi-storey car park with Pier 1 in the background.


Now to the top level of T2 car park with the new car park growing larger with each day. To the left is part of the T2 extension.


T2 extension is getting wider.


And it now has floors and other structures within it.


There is still room for the extension to gain depth as it does not yet match the old building.


The size the extension is starting to become apparent in this shot.


There is still possibly a little space for the extension to expand to its right as there is apparently a road to run between it and the new car park. In the background can be seen the link connector from Pier 1.


A walk down beyond the car park extension allows this view with the Terminal extension directly in front. To the right is the link connector between Pier 1 and the terminal.


Not a lot has changed since I photographed this view last month. There is however an idea of size when look at the workers on the nearest Node.


Similar to an earlier view, but with a better idea of the length of the link connector.


Looking across from the Staff West car park towards the end of Pier 1, with new taxiway Lima concrete in the foreground.

This was my final photo - before a 'jobsworth' told me that photography was not allowed due to security. This will be taken up in the hope that I will gain official approval for future visits.

Naresh Goyal of Jet Airways has said MAN-BOM will go daily on 26th March, and that due to bilateral restrictions on DEL-LHR, they will also launch MAN-DEL in the near future. He also said MAN-ATQ could also be considered in the future too.

Just back from my first experience with Thomas Cook long-haul and I have to say it's really good value for money. This was a business / leisure trip to the West Coast MAN-LAX-MAN, outbound in Y class and back in PE. Both flights appeared to be full, certainly there were no spare seats in PE coming home overnight. It's also clear that this route is not just being used by UK-originating holidaymakers. There were plenty of Americans on board, and people making connections at MAN. Ground staff were calling out pax connecting on to Malpensa. What surprises me is that this route is so seasonal given the above. It has only just resumed for summer 18 and yet was sold out. I can't believe that the demand can just switch on at the start of May and off again in October. Surely it could run year-round and at a higher frequency in summer.

It's a shame that MT seem to have dropped JFK back to 6 weekly next summer in favour of a second CUN on Tuesday. JFK has been really strong and has a higher frequency this coming winter than last, so doesn't seem to make sense to reduce even slightly next summer, unless there are obligations to the in-house holiday arm.

roverman. Good to read your positive comments about MT to the west coast of the US.

In terms of summer 2019 and frequency to JFK, are you sure the TCX schedules have been finalised and loaded yet?
The reason I ask is that on their long haul timetable BOS & SEA don't appear. In fact, there are only 38 weekly L/H flights which would mean 6 based A332s not fully occupied. I was under the impression it would be at least 7 a/c.

I am only going off what is currently showing on the website and what has been reported here about the increase in frequency to CUN. It may not be complete but to show 6 weekly JFK seems strange frequency unless it's the complications of aircraft rotation still to be confirmed.

Cathay Pacific will upgrade to the A350-1000 from 1st December, confirmed and bookable. Seems these guys are doing very well at Manchester.
