The MAN-ISB route is an unusually attractive opportunity because PIA are banned from the UK until the issue relating to dishonestly acquired pilots' licences is resolved. Checks are also reportedly being made on maintenance staff and cabin crew qualifications. PIA would fly upto daily on MAN-ISB with 400+ seater B77W aircraft in normal times. They were one of the very few carriers which did maintain MAN operations during the March - May lockdown, and freight is a factor too. It is a high-demand route even in these difficult times and Virgin are sensible to go for it.

Just found this in my saved files. Ofcourse the timeframe won't be the same now but are the plans still unaffected?

The eventual scope is really an unknown until it's determined what money is available once the capital investment freeze is lifted, but Pier 2 had been prioritised over Pier 3 prior to the Covid-enforced shutdown.

In a similar vein, I noticed a few Ryanair routes dropped off, including Eindhoven, Kiev, Cologne and Prague.

Only ever used Cologne and Eindhoven regularly but the fares of the Eindhoven flight were quite often astronomical. I've seen that flight regularly be Ä200+ in a normal, non holiday time of year, booking more than 3 weeks in advance.
Cologne was always a bit cheaper, but still busy. No idea about Prague or Kiev.

I would think as EI are starting MAN-BOS, JFK, MCO IAG, AA will use these as hubs, probably making PHL surplus to requirements.

Maybe it is, but not for long if this is to be believed:

I'm led to understand the summer schedules are not fully loaded yet so we may not know the final picture. Ryanair applied for slots for several additional based aircraft.

Ah well that makes sense. I was surprised to see the Eindhoven route disappear.

Strange times. You canít fly direct to EWR, ORD, PHL or LAS anymore but you can fly to IAH? (Assuming of course SQ bring it back).

Astonishing that United and American don't see a way to make MAN-USA work. I mean American had MAN-ORD/JFK/PHL/CLT at the time of the US merger!

Possibly not enough USA origin passengers for their liking? Scotland, London and Ireland do get a lot of US visitors.

The Dutch government have banned passenger flights from the UK until the 1st January effective today.

There are conflicting reports as to whether transfer passengers are allowed, or whether direct flights from NL to UK are allowed. Either way, there are widespread cancellations.

Belgium has followed suit and Germany expected to introduce a similar restriction.

Eurostar is to be prohibited as well.
