Travel day, Flybe / Thomas Cook

First time we have done outward indirect (return direct) with Flybe / Thos Cook via Manchester .

So smooth and easy ,
Checked in online separately at 24 hrs before both individual flights.
Flybe flight was 35 min Glasgow / Manchester .
When we arrived at terminal 3 itís was so easy (unlike Gatwick connection)
Literally as we got off the tarmac through set of doors the Thomas cook little desk the guy confirmed out luggage was in the system to go through to Orlando , through a door sign for flight transfer shortcut is to terminal 1, came out another door and sign for lounges (we pre boooked)

No going through security again unlike Gatwick.
From getting off the plane to walking into lounge was under 10 mins.

The aspire lounge at Manchester was also far nicer than No 1 at Gatwick. More spacious , cleaner and more relaxing with comfier seats / booths, quiet areas .
It was around 75% empty too,
Spent 2hrs 45 mins in there too.
Our flight was delayed an hour but made up most of the time .

Immigration was best ever , completely empty walked straight through , not even asked a question apart from how long where we there for and that was it.

Baggage reclaim was a bit of a pain , about 40 min due to fact another Thos Cook arrived just before us and was using the same carousel.

Anyway settled in now at our fav Hilton Grand vacations , Tuscany village , weather looks settled for next 7 days low rain chance and low humidity.
