I'm flying to MAN in a few weeks and meeting my parents who arrive 20 minutes earlier on AA. Can anyone suggest a meeting place? I've never been to this airport. Do US and AA arrive in the same terminal. Do they go to the same baggage claim? Should we meet there or on the other side of customs? Any suggestions greatly appreciated--thanks!

AA arrive at Terminal 3 while US Airways arrive at Terminal 2. These terminals are not next to each other - Terminal 1 lies in between. They could not be further apart if they tried :D There is a map on the Manchester Airport web site (http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk/web.nsf/Content/AirportDetailedViewMaps).
If your parents are arriving first, they could walk round to T3 and meet you at outside Arrivals there - it is the smallest terminal of the three so there is less chance of missing each other! Or you could split the difference and meet in T1 on the level two concourse, which is most convenient for trains and buses into the city.
In any case, enjoy your visit to Manchester.
