Self service bag drop at MAN a mess

Arrived at MAN yesterday for what I knew would be a very busy flight with lots of large families not known for easy communication. The self service weigh and tag terminals were crowded and several were not working. When I got to a terminal it failed half way through.. Queues were getting longer and the staff were running around trying to do manually what was meant to be automatic.

Frankly, if they returned to traditional bag drops, there would have been the same number of staff, but shorter queues and fewer annoyed passengers. Automated systems cannot cope with families with buggies, car seats, overweight luggage and that is one family of nine including a baby.

Back to the future easyJet.

Hi again folks,

We have a deadline from the turkish Authorities for paper work for our wedding next may for the legal process to continue the deadline is wedneday night for them to receive the completed paper work by e-mail.


as they need to know the exact date of arrival into turkey all we need to know is are easyjet opperating weds and sat from 9th may 2018 so we can complete the papers or have to cancel as we have payed the minimum fee required by turkish law which bust be payed 12 months before min.


due to the time it takes to arange the licences and blood tests and they need to check we are in the required duration etc

any information will be only used for this reason

no flight times or numbers will be exchanged pm me if you have any info
again we are sorry for this but we are panicing

Alasdair1, As you're told every year, again and again, no one knows the easyJet schedule apart from the commercial department at easyJet until the flights are released. Your continued question on the same thing year in year out is boring to say the least.

If it was that important why not fly with an airline that has daily flights to Turkey?

What an unpleasant place PPRuNe is sometimes. All the best on getting things sorted for your wedding, Alasdair.

Alasdair1 Not sure where you are located, but Turkish Airlines fly frequent daily and more flights to Istanbul from London, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh all year round, maybe it would be safer to book with them from your nearest of the airports they fly from. Just a thought.

I would never book a "time critical" flight using a loco. If they cancel for whatever reason you are left to rebook maybe days later or your money back. At least with a legacy carrier like TK, BA, LH, KL they will get you there one way or another.

Does anyone know what kind of "crew welfare" issue would result in a MAN-GIB flight diverting to Malaga?

EZY1963 this morning was severely delayed due to tech, replacement plane from Gatwick ferried up to Manchester and fresh crew onboard.

The diversion was announced hours before the plane left Manchester.

It might be that GIB is a 2 captain airport, and there may not have been 2 captains to to operate the flight. Not 100% sure but that would be my guess at the situation.

I think easyJet requires some additional training for operating into GIB. My guess is that the stand-by crew didn't have the correct paperwork for GIB.

That would be 'pax welfare' then.
