A Morningstar Air Express Boeing 757-200 freighter, registration C-FMEP performing freight flight MAL-7070 from Calgary,AB to Winnipeg,MB (Canada) with 2 crew, was enroute at FL390 when the crew selected a lower speed due to light to moderate turbulence. Autothrust retarded the right hand thrust lever, the left thrust lever however did not move. The crew disconnected autothrottle, the first officer attempted to move the left hand thrust lever however without success. The crew referenced the quick reference handbook for a procedure dealing with jammed thrust levers, there was none however. The crew declared PAN PAN PAN reporting a frozen thrust lever. During the descent towards Winnipeg, while descending through FL230, the crew noticed the Total Air Temperature was at +3 degrees C and attempted to move the thrust lever, which now worked normally. Autothrust was re-engaged and performed normally. The aircraft landed safely in Winnipeg with emergency services on stand by.

The Canadian TSB reported the operator's maintenance inspected the aircraft and released the aircraft back to service under minimum equipment list requirements referencing the Auto-Throttle System.
