I can't 'like' your post for obvious reasons but I join you in your RIP sentiment.
As seems almost normal I'm again away from base and stuck with just the mobile!! I do however have an answer to your question and I'll try to copy and paste it for you later today.Does anybody know what this new restriction is that is having a large effect on departures at
Manchester caused by no take offs when traffic on finals to 27 at Liverpool, air traffic are going mad about it as
they are getting lots of complaints from departing aircraft and asking them to make reports, the controller
said it is for the forseeable future and is rediculous
I passed through MAN as a passenger three times over the holiday weekend. Inbound from Kyiv Boryspil with Ryanair Friday lunchtime: no delays whatsoever arriving through T3. Outbound Sunday morning very early for the O5:55 KLM to Amsterdam through T3: lots of early Ryanair pax going through as well but all flowed smoothly, queueing less than five minutes. Inbound on SAS from Copenhagen through T1 around 09:30 on Monday - maybe two minutes of a queue, nothing to speak of. All looked very well organised to me. Quite happy with it.Do we know how many passengers went through the airport over the bank holiday weekend? I haven't heard any MEN or daily stail stories on horrendous queues etc so like to think MAN were well prepared and staffed adequately?!
