Standard guidelines state that for European flights you should aim to check-in two hours prior to departure. Whereas for domestic flights the Manchester airport suggests one hour. I think something in between is a good tentative plan, especially if you have luggage to check-in. Regarding the transfer time from the train station to the British Airways gate, ...

I can't comment on how long check-in/security would take, but depending on luggage, it's at least ten minutes from the station platform to the departures lounge in the terminal, and quite possibly 20 minutes. Manchester Airport has a single, central rail station connected by long passageways with moving walkways to the terminals, so it's roughly comparable ...

The tram takes a long way around - it takes a bit of a tour through Manchester suburbs, and it's maximum speed is 50 mph (80km/h). If there was a direct service, then the extra convenience of not needing to change would probably make it a superior option. But there isn't a direct service - you need to change at Trafford Bar or Cornbrook. I would suggest ...

Judging by Google maps (and street view) it looks feasible during the day, though there appear to be no sidewalks in the section between the terminal building and Paradise road. You would not be the first, if you see this view. That said, it does not look like a very pleasant walk and might not be wise after dark. The 108 bus will bypass the part without ...

The metro link to the airport is newly opened (Monday 3rd November 2014) See official Metro Link site for details and map. So you will need to take a tram from the Airport to Trafford Bar and change for a tram for one stop to Old Trafford. Route Map.

@pnuts comment answers this question, I guess: The Metrolink details are reliable. The service has only been running for two weeks and presumably other sites have yet to catch up with developments.

I support your original idea: Flying to Strasbourg SXB, taking a local train from the airport downtown (costs like €4, can be bought at the station, and takes like 20 minutes), visiting the Strasbourg city centre since it's really beautiful, and then taking a TER train from Strasbourg to Nancy (the ticket costs at most €25, less if you book in advance, it ...

Fly to CDG and Take the TGV Of all the already mentioned solutions, I think the sanest are either the TGV from CDG to Gare Lorraine TGV, followed by another train to Nancy. Or CDG to Gare de l'Est via RER/metro, followed by a TGV to Nancy Gare Thiers (the central station). Since I currently live here I can only say "been there, done that". Sounds awfully ...

Nancy is a medium-sized town, 1½ hour away from Paris by train. That's too small to sustain flights between Paris and Nancy. The Metz/Nancy airport has infrequent connections to a few other French towns which lack convenient train connections, and to a few international cities that people fly to from Nancy. But Nancy's main airport is Paris. There are two ...

Nancy and Metz and two relatively large cities, close to each other along a North-South axis. They are not big enough to support two distinct airports, two high-speed train lines (which necessarily run East-West since they come from Paris…), etc. Consequently, many infrastructure projects are built half-way between the cities, which is not really satisfying ...

There are flights from the USA to Lyon and then from Lyon to Metz/Nancy, but I am not sure which airlines have interline agreements with Airlinair (who apparently are the only carrier to serve Metz from Lyon). You might need to book separate tickets, though you could check both KLM and Air France websites. You could fly to Amsterdam, Paris or Luxemburg and ...

The nearest airport to Nancy that handles commercial traffic is the Metz–Nancy–Lorraine Airport, which is somewhat far from the town of Nancy. According to Wikipedia: Ground transportation A shuttle bus to Nancy and Metz meets every departing and arriving flight. The journey takes about 30 minutes and costs 8 euros. Since this is a smaller ...

After hunting around on the BKK english language website, I've found the answer. There's a handy bi-lingual PDF of the bus times and connections from the airport available on their site, if you dig down enough In summary: From 3:30am until 11pm, there's a 200E bus every 7-8 minutes, which will connect you with Metro line 3 Between 11pm and just after ...

During the strike there is restricted timetable - so you maybe have to wait longer, but you can get to Mainz by train. Take S8 or RB/RE to Mainz Main Station (Mainz Hauptbahnhof). According to Deutsche Bahn S8 will run every hour. Another option would be to get a ride. Check blablacar.de or mitfahrgelegenheit.de - there are few rides from Frankfurt Airport ...

No. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen, holding only an Indian passport. You cannot collect baggage without a visa, as the baggage claim is after immigration. You also cannot get a boarding pass without checking in on your Turkish airlines flight at India. To do this, you would have to leave the transit area in Dubai and then enter again at Terminal ...

I think that it's not possible to rent a car at the airport and drop it in Dobrich because only SIXT and AVIS offer car rentals at the airport but none of them has office in Dobrich. IMHO your only chance is a taxi or private transfer. There is a Bulgarian company that offers transfers from Constanta Airport to some Bulgarian Black Sea resorts - I assume ...

Instead of renting a car (which will be very expensive) you can take a bus. Take a look here for the bus schedules: http://www.autogari.ro/Transport/Constanta-VarnaBG?lang=en If the page doesn't show in English, then select English from the dropdown at the top of the page. Enjoy! Varna is awesome.

Renting a car from one country and dropping it off in another is generally allowed by major companies such as Europcar, Sixt, etc. From Europcar's FAQ page: "If you want to return the vehicle to different station from the station where you start your rental, [...] Domestic one ways are generally possible inside the same country between all stations, ...

I was living in Shanghai until a few weeks ago. Taxi really is your best option at ¥170-¥220. If you really wanted to save the cash, then there are dedicated airport shuttle buses that run until about 23:00. In would take the one from Jing'an Temple as a good location, but there are others as well. That would cost ¥22 and take 50 minutes.

TL;DR: Take a taxi; or take a train, arrive early and use the money you saved on a nice meal/nasty bottle of baijiu at the airport. First of all, a sanity check: a normal metered taxi from central Shanghai to PVG should be on the order of ¥150, or roughly €20. If that's "too expensive", you're really not going to like the prices in Paris! (The ...
