Have I been dreaming? I thought that I had read on here before Christmas about this and reductions at other UK Airports.

Hi Seaside

Nothing previously reported on this particular thread and ACL have only just mentioned in their latest update.

I'm not saying may not have been reported elsewhere.

I recall reading Glasgow would get the A380 during this period and that Birmingham would be unaffected.

When @Scottie Dog posted about the morning Manchester flight being cancelled I had a feeling I'd seen it before as well. If not on here I can't think where though :unsure:

Yes it has been reported before and I think it was about October last year, BHX loses about 2 flights a week
and LGW, LHR and MAN loose a daily rotation

When you get to my age, you begin to think you have forgotten everything you've been told. Glad to see that I am "poco mentis" or whatever the right word is. :)

Emirates’ flights to London Heathrow will be reduced to two flights a day, while Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham will be served with one flight a day from 25 March to 30 June, 2020.

These destinations will all be served by Boeing 777s. The airline will also temporarily suspend its fights to Newcastle, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Edinburgh over the same period.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We continue to monitor the situation closely, and look forward to resuming normal operations when feasible.

Not surprising under the circumstances.

EK website now says that flights to UK will continue. All I can say is that the situation is very confusing and to watch the news.

Looks like their government stepped in and imposed the restriction, irrespective of what other governments are asking.

I would think that will be an estimate as its almost impossible to predict where the world will be by the 1st June.
