Given the news that Birmingham is losing an Emirates flight is it possible their growth curve is slowing. This comes on top of employment reduction. .
I was told by someone who looked at a flight tv screen on Wed. morning at the airport that the EK outbound showed only 218 pax. Is it still the A380 until mid May? As has been said, May is probably the quietest month and I'm not suggesting such a load is generally indicative of a slow-down but nevertheless a useful reminder that even EK can have low loads at MAN, as presumably has happened at BHX. Of course, if Wednesday's flight was well populated with premium fare paying passengers in J class, even 218 is not disastrous and economy pax might have had 3 seats to themselves.

See User's post above Ian - already reported and no great surprise. Of course, if you think BHX is getting its morning flight back, you could always post this on their forum.

I should have mentioned this back in June when I published the statistics for April 2018.

Emirates broke through the 1 million figure in a moving 12 month calendar from Manchester to Dubai with 1,002,238 passengers.
