Not in this instance, many crews had MAN-IOM on roster for a commencement of that service. But in the end the flights were pulled/never announced. It was all a bit strange, but certainly the intent from EZY was there.

I never trusted the MAN-IOM Flybe service and I along with others longed for an easyJet service so it would be good to see them!

Unless Virgin get desperate enough to sell themselves for the minimal sum of Ä1, then I wouldnt pay much attention to Greybull.

Apparently Hainan are starting a once weekly freight flight into Manchester this Friday.
( odd as Manchester is complacent with a capital C when it comes to handling freight).

Maybe the Manchester cargo manager at er' Stansted hasn't realised and is self isolating.

Nice to see Manchester bound frieght finally being handled at Manchester and not 200 miles away.

Could it just be operated by their normal pax aircraft A330/B787 loaded with cargo only and therefore won't cause management at MAN to be startled at the thought of having to unload a dedicated cargo aircraft ?

I was wondering if it was just using the flight numbers, permisions etc of the scheduled service - might make life easier.

Management will be startled if they have to bulk unload the cargo off the main deck of a widebody - not a trivial exercise

Hainan Airliners don't operate cargo config aircraft so most likely will be A330/B787 passenger aircraft using cargo hold only

Taking anything up to 8 hours to handball off of passenger decks elsewhere !

HNA Specialist group freighter business is Suprana with a handful of 747 freightliners for the long haul and none of which have the hinged nose doors.

However this is almost certainly a “passenger” Airbus one would have thought- They have been flying a few into Heathrow however my ears on the ground tell me we might just be about to see a few of these move out in the rather soon as HAL are expected to reduce the availability of the rather special parking rates offered for the extended parking times required .

May be wrong but I'm unsure Manchester can handle 747 freighters.

@HainanAirlines make a return to @manairport on Friday 15th May with a 1 weekly cargo only flight. HU7903 arrives from PEK at 1035, departs as HU7904 to HGH at 1235 and will use a B787-9.

Most "Manchester bound" freight (that is with "MAN" on the air waybill) will arrive in Manchester by truck, be that from London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris, Luxembourg or wherever else. Same for most airports in UK, EMA, for example is a major all cargo airport, but much traditional air freight, that is, not parcels shipped with integrators, will "land" at EMA (air waybill destination) by truck.

They were there last time I checked.

It's a 787-9 anyway doing the freight run.

Won't they need hi-loader's to load/unload the nightly 757F? (unsure about the ATR, assume that's bulk!)
