Albert Hall -Consolidator offer on seats probably normally open in the codeshares and onward connections at either end .

They have no intention to sell at the price indeed at all however their codeshare arrangement will insist on capacity limits and availability.

Some of the codeshare rules can be quite esoteric at times !

You could look at some of the Flybe/Air France fares once offered via Roissy and onto Central Europe - £600 -£800 fares were not uncommon on the Flybe pages yet half that on Air France.

Mister Geezer T2 hopefully wonít be far behind...flights increasing all the time during July and august. Iím predicting T2 will have to open during this time especially if TUI & Jet2 start flying from 15th July as planned...

Err no its open 1st July.

Any news on when T2X will come into use?

Not sure yet...I have mid August-September in my head for some reason...maybe wishful thinking...

[QUOTE=commit aviation;10804061]Once again the topic of freight rears it's head!

MAN actually had a visit from a B747F this morning - TF-AMP divert from DSA due to low visibility. Somewhat surprisingly it was accepted and refuelled before returning to DSA.

If the UK were to implement an "air bridge" with the USA at this stage it would be rank stupidity, and show that politics was the priority, not public health. In this situation it's frankly surprising that any US routes from the UK regions are slated to operate.

Uhm, not to be rude, but the UK made as big a mess of it as the US, they have as much reason to fear you as you have to fear them in this regard!

You are not being rude but I know which country I would prefer and it aint US as US is going to have mass deaths again and we don`t have Trump who is a loose cannon

Fair point. I suppose in the UK one wouldn't need to remortgage in order to pay one's hospital bills in the even treatment was required either, seeing as travel insurance won't cover COVID related expenses now.

Read the other day someone got a bill of 1.2M $ for Covis treatment

I'm hopeful that when UA say permanent they're referring to winter 20/21 and will re-evaluate for summer 2021, would be astonishing if they see no market at all in the UK outside of London.

Hearing reports GLA will be cancelled permanently too. EDI is apparently under review.

Have to say I would be amazed if they were only flying to Heathrow in England but to 2 airports in Scotland 35 miles apart.
Are Delta and American planned to fly to either or both Scottish airports in S21?
MAN needs VS to survive more than ever.

Yes unfortunately.

Given the bloody thing is packed to the rafters with Royal Mail and more than few punters every day.
After 25yrs it would be a sad loss for ECGG. Things are very fluid at the mo, hereís hoping itís not the last of the Golden globe flights.

Delta is still planning to fly JFK-EDI/GLA both 1x daily on 757, and also BOS-EDI 1x daily B757. American plan PHL-EDI 1x daily B787-8.

But United would still be a sore loss with 4x daily 757s to Scotland. I hope they come back to MAN too, they were apparently doing well here.

ORD and IAD are only cancelled this summer, thereís nothing to say they wonít return next year.

l was speaking to our sales agent from United (l work for a UK based tour operator who use United from both LHR and MAN) and he said that the word from HQ in the states
is that United is going to pull out of all provinces and just concentrate on LHR flights. Hope he is wrong.
