And a couple of the diverts - EK37 and LS1202 did go-arounds. Wind shear I believe, at least for the Jet2. I've lost count of the CFE that came here; is it 4 or 5?

I have 5 CFE. FRA/TXL/ORY/IBZ and now AGP.

Hats off to the teams today, over 20 diverts handled, good going.

There is another divert, this time MT BJL-BHX.

Strangely quiet on here considering we’ve had 20+ diverts, usually can’t move on this thread for people critiquing the airport when diverts are refused........

I just confused that I have the count at 20 and you're pushing 25?

Anyway, have we got a good cop, bad cop situ in ops? Sometimes the doors are firmly shut and now and again we'll take everything.

Next candidate is a Jet2 TFS-BHX that is following the MAN route.

Diverts noted today, and bear in mind I’ve probably missed some

2x Jet2
1x Ryanair
2x Easyjet
5x Cityflyer
6x Flybe
1x Lufthansa
1x RAF
1x Germania
2x Thomas Cook
1x Emirates

That seems 22 and I’m convinced I’m missing one or two also.

Seems to be our BEE numbers. I've got 8AK(BHD), 1EY(DUS), 1GT(DUS) and 54CD(LYS).

That Jet2 from TFS is hanging around west of EMA

There were another 2 flybe but I can’t remember the numbers, they blend into the scenery and are pretty non descriptive so didn’t note them down.

Also it’s the TUI diverting in not the Jet2.

Well at least 1 person appears on social media appears to be disappointed with what's come in! It appears we now have the wrong kind of diversion.

Good grief! When was the last time we took 20 diversions in a day?
Some folk are never satisfied.

I hope all the flights were handled reasonably and well done to MAN and staff for a positive response.

Another TUI B757 operating SID-BHX and a Ryanair B737 operating AGP-BHX.

It’s not like you haven’t been documenting the majority of them over on the *eherm* other forum is it now. Pot kettle black me thinks.

I have to say considering the negativity when the ‘no div notam’ is issued, MAN has done exceptionally well the last couple of days and regardless of spotters wanting ‘good diversions’ it has been handled in a professional and efficient manner.

No diversions NOTAM in place 2231 last night until 1200. Presumably when the night shift ops guy walked in and said "WHAT THE ?????"

Indeed well done to all, the NO DIV notam was a good idea, if the airport is full, it’s full. Nowt you can do about it.

Also worth noting a HiFly A345 positioned in last night to work a TUI flight, that was another stand taken. Then you consider MAN has a number of stands U/S due to the construction, and a taxiway OOA for rebuilding works, I see no reason to grumble about the past few days, they did a bloody good job!

Senior moment again. Wasn't it only 3 months ago we took a similar number one morning early December?
