Nice, I heard Swissport staff are being offered triple time to work extra hours.

Having watched the rush to the bottom with handling agents over many years is it any wonder staff morale across all levels is so low. It seems to me that the HA companies have only themselves to blame as it was they who petitioned to get rid of the RHSL monopoly and allow competition, another case of being careful what you wish for.
I think that MAG at MAN have tried very hard to be all things to all airlines, agents concessions et al, this philosophy also hasnít worked too well.
A lot more focus and clever management is required by senior people.

Which operations/airlines are moving back to T1?
I find this hard to believe...T2 is only full overnight ready for the first morning wave of flights from based airlines TUI and Jet2.
KLM, Brussels Airlines and Air France also have aircraft based in T2 overnight.

I'm sure airlines will want to avoid yet another terminal move so soon after settling into T2! And I'm sure MAG/MAN will be of the same thinking too!

I believe once the 2nd pier (B) is complete (around 2024/25) more airlines will move over to T2. With the exception of Easyjet, I expect most of the remaining airlines currently in T1 will move out: Turkish, SAS, Finnair, Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian, Air Transat, Aer Lingus (domestic/CTA flights).
Emirates will have to wait for the 3rd Pier (C) to be built.
Biman and Hanian are also in T1...but no doubt they will also move over at some point, given the fact Biman only operate 2 weekly flights and Hanian is of course not operating to MAN right now due to the travel restrictions from China.

Is there a firm date for T3 to re-open?

Apparently Jet2 moving some of their operation back to T1 due to having 25 based aircraft this summer.

Management are supposedly meeting early next month to make a final decision...but no definite date on possible re-opening as of yet.

In my view it makes sense to re-open T3 given the increase in based Ryanair aircraft and movements/passengers this coming summer season.

I haven't heard about this...but it would be a backwards step. After all MAG/MAN and Jet2 have known for some months now how many based aircraft would be operating during the summer season.
There are 13 new remote stands as part of the T2 TP (first phase). Between all the TUI and Jet2 based aircraft, there should be enough space for all their aircraft between: Legacy T2 stands, Pier A stands, new remote stands and existing western apron stands. I count around 40 stands across these areas.

Remote stands are not the issue, its the number of contact stands that at the moment are insufficient. Judging by the amount of towing going on anyway.

Yes I can see how contact stands would be an issue in T2...however, Pier B at T2 (gates B1-B14) are already in use for the new remote stands. This has been constructed as a bussing lounge/Pier and is the first phase of Pier B.
Jet2 have staggered departures in the morning from 6-11am...so after the first wave of departures (post 8AM) there is then sufficient contact stands to tow aircraft for the mid morning/lunchtime departures.

Over in T1 both piers are full overnight with Easyjet, Ryanair and the two Lufthansa...I fail to see how moving some ops over to T1 would change anything.

How many more aircraft are Ryanair basing? I went through T1 last Friday and it was heaving! Great to see it getting busy again but Iím not sure it will cope in the summer! T3 needs to be reopened and soon!

Based on current slots booked:
Ryanair 19, Easyjet 20, TUI 19 and Jet2 25.

A decision on re-opening of T3 will happen beginning of March. I expect it to re-open but passengers will most likely feed from T1, so check in & security and immigration & baggage reclaim will all be T1 based...unless MAG have a sudden surge of recruitment and manage to acquire enough staff to adequately have all of these facilities in all three terminals...

I've not seen any update yet to the initial Slot report for MAN in which mention was made of 19 Ryanair based a/c for S22. However, some of the slots offered (about 10% as I recall) were more than 30 minutes, and most of those more than an hour, outside requested times which may not have been acceptable, terminal capacity presumably being the restraint. From memory, a small percentage of slots for Ryanair and Ryanir UK were not allocated at all. It's possible after the return deadline for slots, better timings may have become available. However, a figure I have heard mentioned more recently is 15 based which would be 3 more a/c rather than the 7 in the report.

It was reported a while back that easyjet were basing an extra 2 aircraft at MAN for the summer. If it was 17 previously (can anyone confirm?), that would take it to 19 if those plans still stand.

easyjet confirmed 20 for next summer:
The Manchester base will be larger than ever with 20 aircraft based there connecting the North-West to key cities and holidays destinations across Europe.
