BD2662

I was looking at the Manchester Airport iPhone app, and under departures 'search by flight number' was flight BD2662 MAN-DOH departing from T2 7 April 09:35

I took a screenshot, but can't post it at the moment.

Does this flight actually exist? If so I assume it's a charter flight, perhaps booked under bmi that they're still contractually obliged to operatre. If not, does someone else now operate under the BD code?

Does it show up for anyone else (if there's an Android app, does it show up there?).

It shows on the main MAN departures website too, as a codeshare for the regular QR042 to Doha.

As Oxon Flyer points out it also shows up on Manchester Airport's flight information website but presumably from the same data source. QR46 MAN-DOH appears to be a codeshare with US but not QR42 according to flightstats and ExpertFlyer. It looks like Manchester Airport's data may not be accurate.
