    What is the best website to check airlines current schedules during the pandemic? I need to find out what airlines are still flying from the US to Manchester, England if any or when they will be back on the schedule. Thank you.

    If you're looking for non-stop options, looks like you're somewhat limited.

    Virgin Atlantic is in rough shape
    https://corporate.virginatlantic.com/gb/en/media/press-releases/returnn-to-flying.html

    And American won't resume until summer 2021

    If you're willing to connect in Europe, you have plenty of options.

    I'd try the airport website for Manchester. Also, google flights should only show bookable itineraries, which would obviously translate to an airline actually flying...

    The only direct flights I am seeing right now, as RickyW said, appear to be Virgin Atlantic (at least, its showing bookable on Google Flights via MCO for sample flights in October). But try and book that on Virgin Atlantic's website and it will route you through Europe, as will quite a few others. Looking at Manchester Airport's arrivals page, Amsterdam seems to be a popular connection point.
