A spare 9 figure asset for a two aircraft base is not very realistic in fairness. That's probably enough to make the base unviable.

There's two hours of slack. One departs at 11:00 the other at 13:00.
Whichever aircraft is behind schedule gets shifted to the later departure. If its a scheduled maintenance issue or tech casualty, that two hours can save the service. As for spares, at the moment they need two different types of everything. EG wheels. With a single fleet type you can reduce the critical items. It's rare the same part needs replacing at the same time on two aircraft.

Another odd one. Is there really a market for 4 operators on MAN-CPH?

Well it is a wonderful, wonderful place!

But seriously, Norwegian's flights to MAN generally appear timed to optimise weekend break business for Scandinavians visiting the NW for football and shopping. Meanwhile, some of the other carriers on the route operate fewer frequencies than before.

A family member works in hospitality in Manchester, she says there are loads of Scandinavians present in the city at weekends, they come for the party vibe, cheap drinks and bargain shopping

I knew soem Danes in Esbjerg - they could fly to Stansted with Ryanair, have a night in London, shop/go to a match and get home for less than the train fare to Copenhagen

SIngapore Airlines looks like 5 x weekly from the summer schedule, 3 x transit flights to IAH 2 x terminating flights SIN/MAN/SIN. Shame it is not going daily. Thought there would be enough demand for a daily service.

Anyone know why a BA 320 went into the STS hangar today? Casualty or scheduled?

Did one enter today ? I know there’s an A319 arriving tomorrow for maintenance. This should be the first in a series to arrive over the next few weeks. I’m not sure how many are due to arrive in total just yet.

Ah, my bad, Chinese whispers and all that. Answers the question though. Scheduled in. I wonder why? BAMG too busy?

I’m told it’s due to a shortage of hangar availability. I believe there’s x4 due.

Does anyone know if Manchester still has its OWN dedicated route development team. I'm hearing somewhat disturbing news that its now run thru Stansted.

Just heard Manchester is shut due to Snow. My wife is flying back in there on Monday pm, so hence concern, although I know it will be resolved before then but the photos I have seen do not appear to show any depth of snow, is it a de icing issue ?

Cheers

Rapid icing on the pavement one would have thought rather than deep cover, thats far more treacherous and more difficult to deals with .

Airport now open again most diverts have returned , however some short hauls cancelled and Swiss going from Birmingham straight back to Zurich empty as I type this.

The Singapore flight that went down to Roissy was the inbound from Houston whilst the inbound from Singapore dashed and splashed at Heathrow

Both flew over my house in North West London a few minutes apart one at 7000 feet turning base leg and the other at about 31000 feet about to start descent towards the coast and Rouen

Given the circumstances,does MAN group offer subsidies such as free or reduced landing fees at other MAN owned airports in cases of diversion,
Surprised they dont do this and offer Stansted or EMA although i suppose the decision is down to the individual airlines
