LHR MAN

I'm a regular on this one and for most of next week it looks like the 08:10 (BA1386) is missing. Anyone know why?

Also it looks like there's no more CE on that route (not that it's worth it for that journey). Can anyone provide any insight?

Thx

It's domestic, so there's never been CE...

BA regularly drop/move flights to/from MAN. It used to be 10 flights a day, and I think it's down to 8 at the moment.

There has been reductions on a few domestic routes as I posed about recently on BA1345 being dropped tthis week. With regard to CE on the MAN route, perhaps the OP is referring to the seat pitch reduction and converter seat removal up front.

Ok, thanks. Must be getting confused re CE and BUK. I'm sure that the middle table thing on the B/E seats was missing on my flight last week.

It is always missing on domestic flights! BUK gives lounge access, flexibility, and priority boarding. The onboard seating and service is the same

It's missing every week. Every seat is used on domestic flights. There is no middle seat table on MAN flights. You must be confusing flights!

I agree the middle table would not have been there last week

When did you see middle tables on this route?

I'm sure I saw it there in the run up to Xmas but might have got it wrong.

Does 1 day-return trip most weeks since November not count as regular?

The reason for the comments are that as a claimed regular it is a surprise you haven't noticed up to now that there is no Club Europe on domestic services, the middle seats are not blocked, and the tables over seats B & E are not used.

Perhaps an eye test is due?

Yes, thinking about it I've obviously got my flights mixed up and am confusing things. Once i get on the plane i generally just look down the aisle and keep moving. At least my q was answered (thanks).
