I saw Ethiopian is opertaing ex MAN along with a South African Airways A340-600 ?

Looks like Vueling are basing 3 a/c at LPL for those days, operating all day long shuttles between LPL and MAD. IBE have many flights to as you mention, including several heavies.

I believe the Ethiopian is the Man schedule flight which will do a standard turnround to Madrid and return in time for evening departure and yes South African is coming to Manchester

I understand the Liverpool departing Ethiopian 787 is a Paris aircraft, which I think was the same for the Kiev flights.

I'm amazed IB have so much spare capacity with what it planned for Liverpool & London, but they have been planning for this for at least 2 years now!

On a different note, I have noticed Wizzair have used the A321 quite often of late.

The same in BRS with the A321 used more than the A320. Has Wizzair pax numbers grown or have they some A320 out of service.

What are you expecting? A lot of airlines that used to take part in this stuff have gone to the wall. Itís also Half Term so TUI, Jet2, TC etc are fully engaged. Not to mention the Max issues compounding shortages of spare capacity.

Also in the old days itíd be charters or nothing. Now you have options. You can just jump on Ryanair to Gdansk or Naples or wherever they go then take another easyjet or Ryanair or Wizz to Madrid or somewhere else in Spain.

The best ever was incoming traffic with the final at OT in 2003 - what a day that was. Lets hope Liverpool or Manchester can host the final again soon...and good luck Liverpool tonight

Sorry I wouldn't agree, there was a great mix of aircraft and airlines . The Corse Air 744 , plus Virgin and Iberia A332 , Ethiopian 788 and 777 from Austral. Pretty exciting stuff I'd say.

The Austral is the highlight nothing else really that exciting other than the Iberia A330 and maybe the Corseair B747 even though over years
have been to most british airports that can handle B747

Maybe Navpi was hoping for Sterling Caravelles and Spantax Coronado's!! Very impressive operation me thinks.
