Need for links to west coast

AS an ex-pat living on the US West Coast, I was disappointed not to see, in the article about Manchester.

Airport, any mention of possible introduction of non-stop services to this side of the country.

Despite Washington state being the home of Boeing, Microsoft,, Costco and many others, the area gets repeatedly ignored. How about non-stops to Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, even maybe Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas?

I had long hoped for a non-stop between Bellingham (about 70 miles from Anacortes where we live) and Blackpool. Interesting how “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same!
