Dunno, but I have it on good authority that QR will be moving to T1 within 2 years. It's a rolling program so don't hold your breath.

According to today's Sydney Morning Herald, Stansted is their preference. But Ringway is an alternative option.

Bagso 22nd Aug 2008 15:17

hardcase 22nd Aug 2008 18:54

If you read a very popular Aviation magazine, you will see the interview with the AirAsia boss who says that they want to link London up 1st.

MAG seem to be looking to buy a couple of the BAA airports.

Could we see MAG grow bigger than BAA in the years to come and could MAG become the new BAA in ripping people off?

Certainly would break the BAA strangle hold that is has over the city of London but would MAG become a bigger force on the national stage?

MAN latest moves
 
hi,

heres MAN latest moves.....

-Air blue add 5 flights a week

- PK reducing, plus change rerouting ISB-MAN-IST-ISB (15/08-22/08) plus moving some ops to leeds....

- SQ reducing to 5x weekly

- SV reducing to 1x weekly, averaging 30+ pax per flight

- SQ obviously moving to T1 with QR(within 2 years)

- TOM/FCA reducing by 15 aircraft next summer

and probably the biggest rumor yet.....


EK anticipate bring A380 sometime in September after its US tour as long the taxiways are suitable....

you heard it here first!

Ringwayman 22nd Aug 2008 22:08

Do you mean airblue going to 12 a week? PK have already started LBA ops.


SV's "30 passengers a flight" is quite interesting seeing that the CAA's provsional figures for June shows 1013 passengers to Jeddah and 790 to Riyadh i.e 1803 passengers in total which, at the published frequency of 2 a week (9 services = 18 flights) gives an average of 100 per flight.

I severerly douby TOM is dropping 15 aircraft at MAN. 5 or 6 perhaps, 15 for the entire combined operations throughout the country

SQ going 5 weekly is old hat. They claim it's down a "temporary measure due to the seasonal nature" and will aim to get it back to daily again next summer

viscount702 22nd Aug 2008 22:12

SV
 
Again SV were earlier showing a reduction to 1x week they are now showing 2x Week as before.

I would not seem that they are reducing after all

PIA ISB via IST for a short period due to returning of illegal Pakistani immigrants in Turkey back to Pakistan.

Further shift to LBA expected by PIA, but complicated by the lack of available A310's, so nothing is cast in stone at this stage.

SQ Intentions
 
I would not be so sure about SQ going back daily. I also believe that the actual translation of "seasonal requirements or lack of aircraft" from Slingish to English is "we will see how the 380 is doing out of LHR. If we need to fill on certain days, then those poor smucks that used the MAN flight won't mind loosing more rotations. They would much prefer to transfer at LHR to fly the 380 anyway, even if it is a dump (LHR) and their bags will get lost". Sorry this ex freq flyer will not - 3 days without my case last time was the end.

Sad state of affairs, but unfortunately I have been bull$hited by SQ UK and USA too many times now!

"EK anticipate bring A380 sometime in September after its US tour as long the taxiways are suitable...."

Fraid not, am working on 777 being moved across to T1 next March, and A380 2010 sometime, will also be a 2 class aircraft so approx 660 seating.

you heard it here first!
