I've been told that's not an option.... if even only fraction of the MAN based crew decided to use their staff standby travel they couldn't be assured of a seat on the shuttle so it isn't practical...

Would the 'Big announcement' not be related to this?

Nope, or it would be more than the MAN unions going to Donington for a chit'chat.

I'd hazard a guess that the big announcement was cancelled on foot of it. I'd say that part of the secret agreement was that nothing silly can be done in the interim with LH having first say. Someone else can do the restructuring now.

So should I be worried about my MAN-LAS redemption for April? Anyone want to hazard a guess as to whether that route is likely to still be operative in April? If the long haul operation is moved to LHR, is there likely to be a LHR-LAS route or is it more likely to be LHR-some US hub-LAS? Thanks.

We don't know and guessing is a waste of time.
You like me and many others in the same boat will just have to sit & wait and see what happens.
