It`s interesting that nearly all the long haul flights into MAN seem to be upgrading this winter and next spring

Now announced....

"“The introduction of the Boeing 767-400 aircraft is the most significant increase in capacity on our nonstop Manchester – New York/Newark service in over a decade and underscores our commitment to Manchester and the North-West of England. "

Nice passing reference about what previous expansion was like... if only we could go back to the olden days of the route going 757, DC10, 777 then 2 757s....

United will keep the B767 on the Newark route year round. It will be the -300 winter, -400 summer.

Considering a certain poster on here was adamant UA would pull MAN next, quite a good move I’d say.

and there is one person on airliners.net citing the dollar/pound exchange rate as the reason for US carriers "abandoning" MAN as selling in pounds and converting to dollars as too costly as it's predominantly UK travellers using the routes. The evidence of UA really bumping up capacity from Summer seems to contradict that bit of conjecture

I can't see the point of flying transatlantic from LPL unless the destination is not served from MAN.
