There is so much comment on these Manchester threads about how MAG are only interested in the bottom line. If their strategy regarding freight in recent years is costing them a significant volume of...

LFC22

The eventual scope is really an unknown until it's determined what money is available once the capital investment freeze is lifted, but Pier 2 had been prioritised over Pier 3 prior to the...

easyflyer83

Whilst some of the stopping ones are upwards of an hour, there are a number of trains per hour that are a little over 40 minutes. The walk to St Pancras and getting on a train there,...

OzzyOzBorn

There is obviously this rumour about Ryanair and Easyjet being offered exclusive use of T1/T3, however true it may be, but I just don't see that MAG see the existing T1 building as...

Even allowing for what has happened to the industry this year - I can't see MAG spending the money to extend T1, when the plan was for it to be mothballed pretty soon after the entirety of the T2...

They'll need to do trials with staff first, which I'd imagine has been/is going to be an issue, given a) the current Covid restrictions, and b) the number of staff who have been furloughed and made...

They'd have to find someone willing to buy them at anything like a value that would actually make it worthwhile to sell them. I wouldn't have thought that to be an easy task in the current climate.

Spot on. The return leg of the LHR-YVR A380 trip I mentioned upthread was on a 777, and the difference was like night and day. There's been a couple of snarky comments about fans of the A380 paying a...

As a mere SLF (and not a particularly well-heeled one at that!), the A380 is easily my favourite commercial aeroplane I've flown on. One flight that stands out was LHR-YVR a few years ago, sat...

Prioritising their relationship with Arrow Cars has long been more important to MAN than providing a good service to passengers.

Even with the temporary lights on Styal Road at the moment, it's not been anywhere near as bad as it was at a few points over the summer. I can't think of an occasion in the last six weeks where I'd...
