Won't happen. Thailand is very low yielding and is adequately covered by Emirates, Qatar, Etihad, Oman and Turkish.

Will you be able to book flight only though? Doubt it.

Marella Cruises 'the new name for Thomson Cruises' and their cruise ship the Marella Discovery will be based on the island of Langkawi not from Kuala Lumpur. The port for Kuala Lumpur is Port Kelang which is about an hours drive from the capital which is inland.

Flights from TUI are being offered from Manchester to Langkawi as a fly cruise program but I don't see where Kuala Lumpur fits into this.

If that reason is accrurate it begs the question: why do TG fly to Europe at all let alone so many routes?

Dobbo Dobbo.
A rather unworldly question.
Sufficient thought & analysis will be your answer.

Ex Cargo Clown 27th Oct 2017 08:45

Can't book the TOM flights standalone. Shame really

I'm not sure you've quite picked up my point...

southside bobby 27th Oct 2017 11:11

Dobbo Dobbo..I think I did..
TG is not a commercial reality as we perceive the description.
Other factors/factions are at play when it comes to the long haul network.

Ah! Gotcha!

The new pier coming along well:

coyotes_uk 27th Oct 2017 14:58

Forgive my ignorance but, the concrete towers, are they to do with the jetbridges, or something else?

LAX_LHR 27th Oct 2017 15:00

Yes, they are air bridge connections similar to what the silver 'pods' are on T2.

The towers featured here are going to be similar to those at the end of the satellite piers of LHR T5 in that they stretch out from the pier.

coyotes_uk 27th Oct 2017 16:09

Thank you! :ok:

Drive past the site every morning on the commute, it's fun watching the pier grow!

Iberia Express
 
Looking at the 2018 summer schedule from Man to Mad I see that three times a week an Iberia Express aircraft is scheduled to arrive at Man at 1015. It doesn`t depart until 1750.

Has anybody any idea what it does in the meantime?

Lax Lon, over to you

LAX_LHR 28th Oct 2017 15:23

From what I can see:

Tue/Thu: a1715 d1805
Sun: a1015 d1050

The old days of operation in Wed/Sat still showing but will be deleted in due course.

Hope that helps.

Full impact off the direct China flights from MAN now all over the news.

For example here:

This link is interesting:

In summing up the presentations, Rhys Whalley, Executive Director, Manchester China Forum spoke ......<filler>.... Rhys explained how China would continue to be a huge opportunity for the UK and the Northern Powerhouse. Having secured transport links between Manchester and Beijing and Shanghai, Manchester China Forum seek further links with other cities in China, including Guangzhou
As noted somewhere else, slip of the tongue, mistake or other. There is a trade event in Shanghai soon, maybe supposed to be announced then?

AndrewH52 7th Nov 2017 13:25

Either you misread or the summary has been amended...now reads “Having secured transport links between Manchester and Beijing and Hong Kong, Manchester China Forum seek further links with other cities in China, including Shanghai and Guangzhou”...

MANFOD 7th Nov 2017 13:32

It's definitely been amended and wasn't misread. I also saw the initial text and assumed it was more likely to have been a slip of the tongue than an indication of an imminent announcement.

I'm not even sure whether Air China still hold the rights for MAN-PVG.

LAX_LHR 7th Nov 2017 13:34

Definately amended, the text copied was a direct copy and paste, so not an error on my part.

Dobbo_Dobbo 7th Nov 2017 17:31

It was amended. Seemed odd at the time, so no biggie.
