Hi, I hope somebody can help me here. We have booked the 12-25 train this coming sunday ( 20th)
The 2 earlier trains involve buses to lancaster because of engineering works. these works are supposed to be done by 12-00.
If the works arent done in time, and our train is delayed, we could miss our flight. Should i be worried ?

How much lee-way have you built into the time you reach the airport and check-in time?
My advice will be, if in doubt catch an earlier train (or bus). Hopefully worry sorted.

open return tickets

Just to check, are they Anytime tickets? Open return is the old name for those. Just making sure we know that you definitely have the sort of tickets we're thinking of!

I'd also travel early. Would you rather be a bit bored at the airport for a few hours or miss your flight? If you have Anytime tickets you can get off at Piccadilly in Manchester and then catch another train to the airport later on if you want.

Go a few hours before hand - always better to be safe rather than sorry.

TPE have a good scheme from Manchester Airport and Liverpool John Lennon whereby you can travel on a TPE service with an Airport Advance if your inbound flight is delayed (upto 3 hours after the advertised departure time on the ticket).

I would be going as early as possible on a Sunday. I work at Lancaster and it isn't unusual for the engineering works to over run.
