Trophy cabinet looks well this morning:

Manchester Airport was named Airport of the Year at the 2008 British Travel Awards. Also won silver awards as Best UK Airport-Business Travel and Best UK Airport-Leisure Travel.

Really not sure which smiley to use so ....:ok: :bored: :ugh: :suspect:.

Request to mod: Could we have a 'Manchester vs Liverpool' forum and a 'North vs South' forum in Jet Blast? ;)

I can only assume the judges did not visit T3 or T1 which are respectively a disgrace and a building site.:p

move to jetblast
 
It would at least allow this forum to be used to revert back to it's original purpose - commercial discussions about airport and airline management.

Instead we get...

the same people slating BA and bmi for redeploying their aircraft to more profitable locations that advocate EZY should, err, redeploy their aircraft to a more profitable location.
the same people who push for services to be switched from LPL to MAN because of the inconvenience factor, that happily roll the good people of the Midlands, Yorkshire and Scotland into MAN's catchment regardless of the inconvenience those passengers might face in reaching MAN. Funny how a 45mins ride to LPL comes across as the equivalent of the Paris - Dhaka rally but an 1hr 30mins from the Midlands up to MAN is a breeze.
the same people slating BA's business model for feeding their hub that eulogise about any overseas carrier that follows exactly the same business model and also advocate that MAN itself should be a hub.
the same people who hate the LHR centricity in the UK that actively celebrate the MAN centricity in the North

Hasn't the thread just become a huge civic d*ck swinging exercise from people from whom Manchester Airport is a symbol of their desired superiority of Manchester itself over competing cities? Well suited to jetblast but irrelevant here.

re LPL/MAN catchments area.

According to the CAA/DTI (what was) the two have very similar sized catchment areas. Its not until the two hour journey by road/rail (pre Liverpool South Parkway) comparison is done that the two airports have different results.
