Nosey, picky

Freight over-stated

Nosey, picky

Infratil’s silver-tongued spinners at Maxim PR told the world that Manston currently handled “33,000 tonnes of freight” when they trumpeted Infrapenny’s MasterPlan (8th Oct 2008).
Oops.
Looks like an over-active optimism gland, or a misty-eyed remembrance of times past, or possibly even a typo. The last time Manston handled that much freight in a 12 month period was October 2003-September 2004. The closest they’ve got recently was May 2007-April 2008 with 32,061 tonnes. According to the CAA’s figures.

And for the sake of completeness, monthly:

“KIA is currently operating at a fraction of its potential and is not a sustainable business at current traffic levels.” Matt Clarke, Chief Executive Infratil, 5th February 2009

  1. Everything said by the owners is always over-stated, their just trying to lure investers how many lost out to Plane station, even Infratil were told a load of rubbish by Plane station, just goe's to show how easy it is to fool people, Plane station said they'd carried 365,000 passengers in the year EU Jet were there ha ha ha, a few people I know who travelled with them loved it the aircraft were almost empty, the 365,000 was probably a cash flow report five aircraft with 100 seats means 500 could fly out & 500 could fly back each day hence 365,000 passengers a year simple in it
