I would assume either 737-800 or a Dreamliner. The 75ís and 76ís are old and can sit around until they need them. The Maxís are not yet able to enter service. So the new build 737ís and the dreamliners they had factory fresh will do most of the flying this year. I would imagine the 757 and 767 will be sat around for as long as possible!

you will easily be able to tell from the seating plan which of the 737 or 787 will operate.

TUI 757 and 767ís will start to fly more at the start of august - I know for definite the 767 operating at the weekends to RHO

I'm flying out of T1 for first time during pandemic next week.

I'm the old world I used to take an empty water bottle and fill it at the water fountain just beyond security.

Anyone know if that water fountain is still available or has it been removed for hygiene reasons?

BHX - 5 pw from 01.09.20
NCL, GLA, STN & LGW all re-start 01.10.20

My chariot of choice returns ! Glad to hear of the return to twice daily as well. That Red Eye early morning flight was and remains my least favourite option. Also EK are increasing Skywards miles to encourage further flying, which should please another member of my house hold, who will immediately start looking for holidays as I have quite a few EK flights coming up before Christmas. Downside will be the mask wearing for hours and hours, I wonder if the bar will be open ?
Cheers

Update today from Routes Online gives yet another change. MAN and Edinburgh are both now a daily 777 for September; Birmingham is 5x weekly 777 from 2nd September and Glasgow is 4x weekly 777. Stansted, Newcastle and Gatwick arenít mentioned so assume they wonít restart until at least October. Heathrow is 2x 380 and 1x 777 daily.

Caveat - Iíve not cross checked this with the Emirates website.

with a suggestion the NCL and EDI flight been merged (into a single EDI daily flight). Wonder why they didn't just do a double-drop.

SWBKCB 24th Jul 2020 18:37

Where are you getting the EDI/NCL suggestion? Nothing in the Routes Online article as of 2330GMT 23JUL20

You canít.
Anyone flying DXB-NCL-EDI would need to re-clear security to be allowed to fly NCL-EDI.

The original post quotes merge EDI & NCL into a single EDI flight (no NCL)
I assume on the basis pax could drive to EDI ?

SWBKCB 24th Jul 2020 20:09

Just curious as to source of the comment as there is nothing in the article being commented on.

Equally BHX pax could drive to MAN or LHR, EDI pax to GLA, STN & LGW to LHR??

As mentioned a double drop flight would require everyone to de-board, clear security, aircraft cleaned and searched etc. More hassle than it's worth almost anywhere in the UK when you can just throw the pax onto a coach instead!

Looks like 3 flts a week for CX in September, students at a guess?

The answer is yes, the water fountain just after security in T1 is still there and usable for the general public.

But I believe that most airports have shut off drinking fountains, if not the refill fountains too.

officially yes and in normal circumstances however permission can be sought from the CAA to keep the transfer passengers onboard so long as it is the same crew operating the flight and nobody joins it at the middle point. Special dispensation can be given for the passengers to be kept onboard and screened at their last point of entry - in this case NCL.

Screened on arrival?? The issue is that a DXB-EDI-NCL drop would see EDI departing pax mixing with inbound pax out of DXB still on biard for NCL who had been cleared to (allegedly) lower standards. The workaround is a costly DXB-NCL-EDI-NCL-DXB.....

I appreciate that most contributors are discussing theoretical possiblities, but before we create an urban myth, Is there any evidence that any double drops are being considered?

Double drops? EDI? NCL? Thought I was on the Manchester thread ?:confused:

I think two seperate things have gotten confused here. Firstly the touted DXB-EDI-NCL-DXB does go against CAA policy as outbound passengers (EDI)would mix with inbound passengers (NCL).

However in the Jet2 scenario it's all just inbound passengers with some being dropped at EMA and the rest EDI. No mixing required so no problem

Now that's cleared up let's get back to Manchester related news.....
