Shurely every MAN and his dog?

2/6 working on my way to B gates this morning. Which was just great seeing as I messed up my timing and passed security as if for gate close time instead of boarding open time.

I gave credit where credit is due in a post to Another Thread

And as a postscript, Saturday saw me sailing up the escalator to T3 check in. The walkways within T1 may well be working too: I'm being generous because experience and habit mean I don't bother with them.

Fingers have clearly been pulled out: may they long remain that way,

You mean the walkway going towards 2x and 3x gates? I don’t think it has worked in years.

Oh Allah... what a dump of an airport. Once per year is enough for me... here’s to December 2020!

Anyone up North I can really recommend using GLA on LH over MAN especially with the Lomond Lounge, which is a really nice facility.

Every cloud has a silver lining if you look hard enough, today the ‘Aspire’ lounge was clean & almost empty, similarly my flight from MAN- MUC
