I'm getting ready to purchase my train tickets for a trip to England in May 2020. I will be flying into Manchester from the USA and will then take a train to Leeds. My flight is scheduled to land at 9:10 AM. The TransPennine Express website says that at least one hour is required from terminal to train. Is this realistic? How much time would you allow between plane arrival and train departing? I will have to include time for picking up checked luggage.
There are direct trains departing at 10:10, 10:40, 11:10, 11:40, etc. There are currently airport advance tickets available for the 10:10 and 11:10 trains. The 10:40 train only has anytime tickets available. It would be nice to save some money, but I also don't really want to spend a lot of time waiting for a train.
