From a security perspective fundamentally disagree with the mixing of domestic and international travellers airside its simply poor and especially in view of the government policy of segregation of arrival and departures post security.

The only reason certain airport operators like it is for retail opportunities .

That's a curious statement. When all passengers pass through the same security process and require photo ID for travel, how exactly is this a security issue?

Regarding T2 as a domestic or CTA terminal, at the moment there are no arrival routes (as I understand it) for domestic or CTA passengers.

I read on another site that the inaugural EIUK MAN-JFK flight will be operated by the spare A330 tomorrow as there has been a slight paperwork delay in getting the A321LR over there. The LR will now position over Thursday to commence operations on Friday. Same source said EI are happy with the forward bookings on the JFK route.

Thanks for the information, sorry you will not be able to use it on this trip, though they are open in DXB at least.

Current position of hangars

I wondered if anyone knew the current situation with the old Air Livery and Thomas cook Hangars. Are there any plans for someone to use them again?

Thanks

Latest scuttlebut is that FEAM have the ex TC hangar, THG still have plans for the old BA shed, but what they are is anyone's guess as there are other rumours that they are in financial trouble.

Forgive me if already answered, but who are 'FEAM' ?

A quick Google search finds - FEAM Aero on Cincinnati who do line maintenance. I had also heard a rumour with regards to Fosun (Chinese company that owns Condor).

I believe that FEAM are out of the equation.

I sincerely hope FEAM are still involved although i was told by an employee who works at Amazon next door, that the Hut Group actually now fully own both hangars, Air Livery and Thomas Cook.

This would tie in with a proposal 12 months back that THG would set up their own freight operation with two chartered 747s and fly their own products in from the Far East, but presumably this fell foul of Covid, and the persuasive skills of MAG not to entertain pure cargo flights although i assume if it's an in house operation THG would set everything up themselves, assuming they were then allowed apron space ?

Was there not another project by MAG to turn Air Livery into high end covered premium car parking or did that pre date THG ?

There have also been rumours of a major engineering company creating hundreds of good quality engineering positions and apprenticeships, that has also come to nought.

Did they go elsewhere ?

Either way if indeed THG do own the hangers it is an extensive piece of infastructure which is sat empty?
Could there not be a meeting of minds given Manchester is one of the few major airports in Europe with no hanger or major engineering facility re engine swaps etc ?

Manchester Airport said the longest security queue was just over an hour and a half - and have now apologised to travellers affected 'for any inconvenience'. They said they faced a higher number of passengers than expected, and a higher-than-usual rate of staff absence on the day.

The airport last night responded to several complaints on Twitter with the same message. The tweet from Manchester Airport said: “We are aware security queues were longer than we would have hoped at times today and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We are doing all we can to minimise delays and thank customers for their understanding.”

not sure why any passenger should be surprised by this and my sympathy is limited. The place is falling apart around us yet people moaning on their way to Tanzarote.

Neither can I understand why the airport should be surprised by the passenger numbers. Don’t they look at the scheduled flights or talk to their airlines? Rank bad management.

" a higher number of passengers than expected"

That's an insult to each and every one of those passengers who have been affected

No excuses. There's nothing like shooting yourself in the foot.
