Last time Blue Islands served MAN (about a decade ago?) they got the blues pretty quick. It's grim up north! But that was when FlyBe were around to eat their prawn sandwiches. Now the field may be...

Is-ba-mad? As well as Virgin, PIA are still flying MAN-ISB by proxy at least once weekly using a Hi Fly A330. PIA for all their troubles will still surely capture a good deal of the home market. For...

Sounds like they plan to fly within Europe rather than between the USA and Europe.

Almost right, 96er, the hangar was originally opened as Qualitair in 1989 but not long after the name changed as you say, to FFV Aerotech. I think it was a merger or re-branding thing.

I don't have access to the what connections are being made generally, only the numbers of transfer pax on particular flights. The Jet - Virgin thing is common knowledge due to the sheer volumes and...

BA Shuttle reduced

British Airways are reducing the MAN-LHR service for Summer 2019 from 8 to 6 per weekday, and just 4 or 5 at weekends. This must be the lowest frequency since the 1970s. BA will now have fewer daily...
