Don't moan about Ryanair just look at this lot

bmi regional's service between Manchester and Toulouse is cancelled from 06 January 2007.  Flights up to and including 05 January 2007 will be operating as normal.

Our reservations team will be contacting passengers booked on this service on or after 06 January 2007 to offer a full refund.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Probably good riddance, never had a flight arrive on time with them from Manchester yet. Record delay 5 hours Christmas last year.

That would be a disaster for me also if that happened, though Bordeaux - Birmingham with train up to/from York could be possible.

Am used to the milk train from York at 2.15am  and taking 2 hours to get to Manchester Piccadilly followed by the coach to the airport when they are doing track repairs at night. It's just great waiting in the cold for the driver to open the coach door with passengers waiting outside.  He has the heater on inside! It's his job!!

No doubt York Birmingham at that time would throw up some similar situations!!!

Have just checked a booking for Jan19th Manchester - Bordeaux and return 2nd Feb so hope it will still be operative.

Keep me posted if you hear any news.

Don't want to do Stansted - Bergerac.  Missed one flight due to train breakdown on the way from Peterborough to Stansted at Cambridge. Anglia trains!!

I tried the website, looked promising tho we'd have to travel further at the UK end. It seems to offer Leeds/Bradford or Manchester to Toulouse.    However, I tried putting in dates just to see what the cost would be and couldn't get any further as it took me to a page about my booking, which of course I haven't made.  So no idea of costs/availability!

If Bergerac is a possibility, then perhaps you would find East Midlands more convenient than Stanstead.

I recently booked one-way flights from Toulouse to Manchester with Jet2

for two different dates in the summer and the cost was around £30 pp

per flight all in.  I don't think the service starts until the

middle of April and it isn't daily, though in May and June it seems to

run most days of the week.  The flights leave Toulouse quite late

in the evening.  We are almost equi-distant from Bordeaux and

Toulouse and so our family will find it very convenient to come out

from Manchester to Bordeaux by bmibaby (leaving about 6.45am) which

means they can then take the train to Mont de Marsan and be with us by

early afternoon.  Going back they will take the train from Tarbes

to Toulouse and because the Jet2 flight leaves around 10.00 pm they

have most of that day with us as well.  It makes such a difference

being able to book one-way flights!

PS The Leeds/Bradford - Toulouse flight comes into service around the same time but I think it's Saturdays only.
