Manchester, United Kingdom
BMI decided to delay our shuttle flight by 30 mins and combined it with another flight. Even so there were still about 40 of us on an Airbus built for 100 more. I’ve been on fuller coach trips. There’s no way that flight could have made a profit. The lovely thing was though we checked the cases in at Manchester and then said goodbye to them until Hong Kong. We even got boarding cards for the Air NZ flight at the same time. This sort of organisation I really like.
