I see Etihad are flogging 22 A330s (Most not flown this year) So,there's a chance for Virgin to buy up and base a few at MAN- wouldn't hold my breath though. If they are/were serious about a MAN network with Flybe etc- now's the chance.

Not just a strait forward as that but would be nice

The 330s are going to a leasing company

Whether it says suspended for 7 weeks remain to be seen, as today the Chinese Authorities asked Chinese Carriers to maintain INTL ops. If this includes PEK-MAN, we may see it back sooner than 7 weeks

Juneyao have pushed back the start of Helsinki/Shanghai until the end of April...personally I think thatís optimistic.

Dublin aerospace are interested in acquiring the facility i hear and have held job interviews.

I see Jet2 are moving some flights (Antalya & Palma) from T2 back to T1 from 29 March. I thought the idea was to move everything to T2 eventually ?
Without TCX T1 is a lot less crowded, but would have thought better to get some of the T3 operators (KLM/AF for instance) out of that (T3) mess and into T1.

The logic as I understood it was that Flybe serve their new masters at AF/KL/VS/DL and whomever else (and I noted today in DUS and AMS that Flybe had prominent Virgin Atlantic logos for the code shares on the Manchester departures. With Flybe in T3 with AF/KL makes sense to take all or none or perhaps try and put them all in one place.

Literally not enough room at T2 for all 29 of the Jet2 summer MAN fleet. Not yet anyway. I guess we'll see what happens when the remote area behind Pier 1 is complete, but as it stands 70% of Jet2's flights are T1 in S20.

That confirms what I had heard although not that it had got to the interview stage. Very good news if it's true for both the airport and, more importantly, the engineers.

Yes im sure such a great facility wonít be empty for long....There was rumour of Virgin also being interested .

Cathay are chopping over half their entire network until the end of March. Mainly multiple schedule reductions- but the following routes suspended completely until March 28 : London (Gatwick), Rome, Washington, Newark, Male, Davao, Clark, Jeju, and Taichung. So Manchester appears to be keeping its full schedule. (Source SCMP)

Cathay looks to be revised to x4 per week throughout March while Hainan is suspended completely until the end of March.

9 additional flights cancelled, 2 already planned cancellations. They appear to be ad-hoc, most likely based on bookings.

In today's Airlineroute update, it is confirmed that Juneyao will keep PVG/HEL at 3 weekly until mid-April and planned extensions of this service to MAN, DUB, & KEF are also postponed until mid-April.

Yep, now showing in the GDS. 20 flights total operating during March.

First half of March in general fewer flights but all on 351, second half flights are more frequent but on 359.

April still close to full schedule (359 weekdays and 351 weekends) but that will no doubt change as the situation develops.

Cathay seem to be doing a great job at managing capacity.

And theyíve really shifted focus to transit pax - some awesome fares for long haul pax starting and ending outside of East Asia,

FFHKG 11th Feb 2020 09:29

Am I correct in thinking that MAN handled 4 EK 380's yesterday, the three daily scheduled plus the one delayed by the weather on Sunday? Feel sorry for anyone on the Sunday delayed flight that did not get re-scheduled on the Sunday evening and Monday mornings flights..... assume they were accommodated in hotels overnight. What happened to the inbound passengers from Sunday who were diverted to FRA?
