According to reports from various sources, we also took an easyjet from LGW and a Ryanair from STN. Finally we accepted a Jet 2 from LBA sometime after 1am. I can only personally vouch for the TOM015 at a time I was watching FR24, but that's not to say the others didn't arrive.
Unless fuel emergencies were being declared in those cases, it would appear the airfield duty manager and the handling agents were allowed a little flexibility despite the ongoing No-Divs notam.

In the afternoon & early evening, MAN had plenty of its own go-arounds and lost a few flights that diverted away. Sometimes, that seemed to be due to wind shear problems on final approach rather than wind direction, speed and gusts being outside an aircraft's limit. Wind shear does appear to be more of an issue at MAN over the many years I've taken an interest.

"There are far worse things happening in the world now but, I'm stood in a more than 200m queue to get into arrivals at Manchester airport," he said. "Heard a member of staff on the phone say "you'll have to stop people getting off, there's nowhere for them to go."

A friend of mine gave me his summary of the article:The M.E.N. does delight in these headlines.

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co...rport-23216587

But why do they bother to quote a passenger with something that's obviously drivel like this: -

One said the queues are currently the length of the T1 departure pier - which he estimates to be around a mile long.

Someone else mentioned 200m which may or may not be nearer the mark.

While someone expected to be delayed for hours, another complained that luggage still hadn't arrived after 37 minutes to get through passport control. Not great but hardly hours.

MAN apologised but referred passengers who wished to complain to contact Border Control.

Nevertheless there was obviously a problem, hopefully only for a short period with a raft of flights arriving close together.

The poor quality of reporting with this type of M.E.N. article is just as bad as the inane comments of some of the passengers.
BACsuperVC10 is of course a well known contributor on the Liverpool thread so I'm not surprised he couldn't resist a dig at MAN.
I do hope, however, that staffing issues at MAN are being addressed and resolved, be it their own departments, Border Control or Handling Agents.

Everybody else's fault expect MAG's again? and responding with 'here's a link to Border Forces complaints proceedure'?

If these stories appear in the MEN with monotonous regularity what's being done to remove the problem at source (whichs seems to have been around for years?) or to engage with the MEN about how they report the stories?

Yes I contribute to the LPL thread, and use that airport often, and sometimes MAN , but I don't see what that has to do with anything. Bad service is bad service, simple as that.

Austerity cuts by a previous local MP for more than a decade, resulting in reduced border agents; several changes in both policy and structure by Mrs May, including the hostile environment moving officers away from the frontier to locate collect process, and imprison illegal workers.
Brexit and hardened frontiers checking ALL passports on entry, COVID economic and health impacts.
End of freedom of movement and zilch spent to prepare half a decade since the referendum.
This is the new reality of isolated Britain and learn to live with it . Britainís official frontiers currently resemble US of a decade ago !
This is a national issue and itís also experienced at Heathrow and Gatwick .
As an immediate impact through local managers at the border agency are directly responsible for the day to day hour by hour problems including rosters.
Given that the border agencies and intelligence agencies do have advanced access to manifests and schedules they should be better able to manage supply and demand through.
Very definitely a local problem however other than pressure of words what can MAG do canít exactly raise an ITT for an alternative supplier or framework contract can they.
Now different matter land side departure security I give that !
