A slight update on the new routes
"A 3X-weekly service between Manchester (MAN) and Mumbai (BOM) will begin on Dec. 19, operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The airline then plans to connect MAN with Delhi (DEL) nonstop from Jan. 5, flying 2X-weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. Both...
What were you doing 43 years ago today (16th Oct 1977)? Me.... 1st visit to MAN and it gave completely the wrong impression on how busy MAN was back then as it was a good old fashioned diversion day with Air India 747 VT-EDU parked on stand 14 and virtually everywhere a plane could park...
Seeing that it was this year's winner of the "most surprising new route" and that the conrtinuation into winter was only recently put on sale, it's not a big deal. If they can average 100 passengers a flight in these times then what would happen when things are better?
So Keir Stamer in wanting a National Lockdown goes against the advice of the local Labour MPs and the Labour Mayor of Greater Manchester who don't want the strict restrictions put in place in Greater Manchester. Ably demostrating how clueless they would also be in power given the "Mixed...
It's only Tier 3 that's got the guidance for no travel in or out of that area.
An illustration of why the Government is on a hiding to nothing. On the news that Greater Manchester is NOT going to be included in Tier 3, the Manchester Evening News published an article and here is an nice little...
so the Liverpool region will be have the most strict restrictions with the "Puritan" phase in place for around 4 weeks with no travel out of the area. Looks like Newcastle and Manchester regions are going to be maintaining what is in place
Did my 1st real trip of of the year on 28th September so it was time to experiment with the new camera. Only putting this single shot up at the moment... Chatsworth House
hopefully over the coming weeks I can box off a few more trips (assuming Manchester doesn't get a no travel anywhere...
Here's something vintage... airlineroute has put up the July to September 1961 schedule for BEA's MAN-Heathrow route
Of note.... 50 mins scheduled time in a Viscount compared to the 1 hour now. And the last flights of the day.
From MAN to Heathrow.... leave at 2225 to arrive 2315
Been reading "First and Foremost" and it seems strange to report that the 1st time 500,000 passengers was recorded in a month was July 1980.
This means that in the space of 2 or 3 months, we've gone from recreating history from 50 years ago with Lufthansa's resumption of Frankfurt services to...
The Taiwanese bilateral restricts airlines to London or Manchester. So where Birmingham comes in is anybody's guess.
Air Seychelles is a niche carrier with precious little chance of going outside of London (and yes, I am old enough to remember them operating out of Manchester 1996 to early...
