    Virgin Atlantic

    So on some sites, questions have been levied about the limited connections on BE and how effective they would be feeding a merged VS/MT. It's only isolating out the routes that you can see there are 3 or more daily to ABZ, EDI, IOM, BHD, SOU, EXT, AMS, DUS, and CDG. This "limited" feed...

    Ryanair

    25 years of Ryanair at MAN analysed. Remarkable that they are the biggest airline here but with only 16% market share! Only a quarter of their routes are operated daily. https://www.anna.aero/2019/05/11/ryanair-celebrates-25-years-at-manchester/

    Virgin Atlantic

    Remember why the group wants to sell the airline. Its not because the airline is a basket case. It's helping prop up the whole group whilst being a minority division of the company. Get decent money for it to ease any cash flow problems. Whilst VS may have a bigger operation at LHR, they...

    Isnt it useful that Thomas Cook o operate to DL hubs. We wanted greater VS frequency to BOS and LAX. This allows it. Potential for JFK services to be staggered to provide better convenience for business travellers. Reintroduction of SFO services. Fly into the DL hub at Seattle. Make good...

    Random Stuff!

    Therein lies the quandary for BHX.. does it want volume or variety?

    Route Development

    Before we start alluding to all routes out of MAN can get a decent load, remember that Loganair gave up GLA-MAN. And these days we also need to remember that where there are LCC .charterflights available, you will see loss-leader prices being touted. I doubt Jet2 would let anymore than 10 or...
