Hope someone else steps in to get rid of this cartel sharpish.
Someone who can do a load check might be able to confirm, but part of that could be down to limited availability. Thomas Cook did operate MAN-BGI and used to carry cruise ship passengers, so it wouldn't surprise me if many of those have been rebooked onto Virgin or TUI out of MAN meaning there's limited availability. LGW also has daily options and multiple flights per day on some days.

For those prices booking at this late on, I'd seriously consider indirect options or take the drive to LGW with an overnight stop.
