EZY At Manchester

Mon May 29, 2006 1:26 am

Just got a text message from a friend of mine who works at Manchester.
He says there is a Easjet at the airport.
Any one know who it is, and the reasons for her being there.

I have been hearing rumours of Ezy starting MAN ops, and i hope it aint true.
Theres enough low cost service at Manchester as it is.
Where does the time go???

One aircraft at MAN out of the blue hardly indicates they're actually serving MAN.

Probably just an LPL diversion - perhaps an issue requiring a longer runway (flapless landing), or an urgent medical diversion. If they were announcing anything I don't think they would do it on a Sunday, in a bank holiday weekend.

Just been looking at various airport websites,could possibly be LTN-BFS flight.
These flight seem to be doubling up with next flight,and running very late into BFS.Just a thought tho.

Well I heard it on ATC. It was flying a NOKIN SID so it certainly wasn't a LPL diversion; it wasn't on the Manchester Airport website either. Very peculiar!  scratchchin

What's a NOKIN SID?
Is there anymore info on this at all?
I've searched everywhere and can't find a thing!

Got this on a MAN Yahoo group:

Quote:
EZY8008

MAN-BRS

Stand 31

1855LT

B752.

Did anyone Catch the Reg - this was clearly a subcharter of somekind.

Ahh that's why they did a NOKIN. It was operated by Thomas Cook; I know this because one of the flightcrew accidentally said "Topjet 8008" to the controller rather than "Easy 8008".

Apparantly it was G-JMCD (according to same group).

Now, since when did easyJet do charters? Especially ones involving a sub-charter?

Hmm, more info - seems JMCD was operating for a BRS based a/c, hence it returned to MAN as a positioning flight tonight.

EZY aren't yet moving into MAN  Smile

Isn't this a subcharter FOR easyJet?

EZY8008 arrives @ BRS earlier this evening, and EZY8009 returns to MAN at 3:40am...
I don't like signatures...

The flight number is EZY8008 as you said, this a positioning flight number so aircraft would of been empty

We use sub-charters quite often in the past we have used G-ZAPU Titan 757, G-ZAPM Titan 737, G-SJMC MyTravel 767 and yesterday we used EC-JOI Air Plus Comet MD-88 and today we used G-CDPT Globespan 767.

today myself and my 2 lepers on my crew were fortunate (with the help of Aviance) to do the turnaround on the Globespan 767

Suppose it was fairly 'armless...
(sorry)

I didn't think U2 did sub-charters, just seems to go against the LCC 'way'. But then, maybe I'm just too used to the FR way of doing things!

Its G-JMCD 757-25F of Thomas Cook
Came in as Topjet 892 Lima at 17.32. Positioned out as Easy 8008 at 19:01.

As Diesel1 said due back at MAN this morning at 03.40 as Easy 8009

We were on a JMC 757 G-JMCG AMS-LTN for an easyJet flight a few years ago when our easyJet aircraft went tech and they merged two flights together.

Certainly a nice change from the 737s, although at 2am after an 8 hour delay it wasn't particularly appreciated.
