I suppose it depends on how $h*itty and how close to the airport the motel they choose for us will be.

Given the trend, I suspect the answer to both these questions will be: VERY.

I'm sure the shopping in the Trafford Centre will make up for it

Can't argue with that.

F me. Trafford centre. At least they will find out that Primark stocks clothes as good as any boutique around L'Opera or Milan.

Rumour has it that it's to be crewed out of Manchester for the pilots.

I wouldn't be surprised to see all the MAN FOs converted to the 777 leaving the freighter Captains to crew left and right seats on all freighters to Europe. That extra belly freight capacity on the 777 won't exactly help with the overmanning on the freighter either.

and all those freighter F/O's jumping seniority for a pax tripler base, time to get the popcorn out!

having said that, the pattern hasn't even started yet and we already at it!

it'd be just like Cathay to convert everyone onto the 777 and then onto the 350 in a few years time! Reality? if you're flying rubber dog shit out of hong kong now……you probably will be forever!

Not so much Middle Eastern as South Asian. Great place for a curry.
