Spot-on there lagerlout. Well done Jet2.

Ryanair actually cancelled 208 flights today and that's an awful lot of inconvenienced passengers.

209 and they operated over 200 more. Jet2 had only 2 or 3 flights to operate?

Do we see Ryanair busing passengers to another airport to fly from when Jet2 could of braught the aircraft to LBA like most airlines would do.

No, they will just cancel the flight and leave their passengers stranded and you cannot deny this happens. At least Jet2 do not desert their passengers.

99% of the time you will see a Jet2 flight delayed 4 5 or 6 hours everyday.

Nonsense, Jet2 are not the most punctual airline but that statement is absolute nonsense in itself.

Looking on the Jet2 website it appears to have diverted to Kavala and is now delayed until tomorrow. On a seperate note, Jet2 have announced a new Manchester - Pula route from March next year.

Jet2 diversion

Associated Press:

Greek authorities say a British Jet2.com airliner carrying 217 passengers has safely conducted an emergency landing at the northeastern airport of Kavala.
The plane had been flying from Bradford airport in England to Larnaca in Cyprus.
Airport officials say the pilot requested the unscheduled landing on Wednesday after his instruments indicated a malfunction.
Experts were checking the aircraft, while a new plane was expected to pick up the passengers later in the day from Kavala, some 105 miles east of Thessaloniki.

G-LSAD appears to have left EMA heading for Northern Greece earlier this evening

Looks like Jet2 are not having the best off luck.

Astraeus B757, G-STRY has been covering some flying duties out of MAN today to replace G-LSAI which was sent to cover over at LBA yesterday after G-LSAE was badly damaged there.

Today has seen G-LSAI divert into Kavala due a malfunction of instruments. So this evening EMA based G-LSAD has positioned down to Kavala with some engineers onboard as LS041A. It will then fly the passengers onto Cyprus and overnight there before heading back to LBA tomorrow afternoon operating the delayed LS476 service.

Iím taking a wild guess that G-LSAI will be flown back from Kavala to the UK as a positioning flight after been checked out by the Jet2 engineers.

Meanwhile a 2nd Astraeus, B757, G-STRY has been positioned from BHX as LS43A to NCL to cover up there tomorrow seen that a NCL based Jet2 B757 aircraft is been sent down to LBA in morning.

And just as I type this yet another Jet2 this time G-LSAL has diverted into MAN this evening operating the LS158 service from PFO to GLA for some reason. Looks like G-LSAM has just been sent up to Glasgow empty as LS42A while the passengers will be bussed up the M6.

Strange Seating Layout (3+4)

I've just made a booking to go to NCL from FAO this Thursday and the seating plan online is showing 3+4 as the cabin layout. This rules out a 737/757 so anyone know what a/c is being used and if it's a sub-charter?

Thanks in advance.

That flight is operated on one of our own 757's, not sure why it's got a 3-4 config, on my computer and all work ones it's showing 3-3. Perhaps an issue with your browser?

Yeah that sometimes happens with the Jet2 seating plan on the website, I have also checked the system and it is showing a 757-200, 3X3 config.

Jet2 have announced Pisa for next summer from East Mids with a 737-300 to be based there from Summer 2012, along with existing 2 757's.

Maybe there will be even more routes now there is uncertainty surrounding BMI Baby....?

Sounds like they've already scraped the airframe
Acording to planespotters it is still in the fleet so have they scrapped it then

Anyone got any pics of the damage?

It's due back in service next week so it's news to Jet2 if it's being scrapped.

On a side note, G-GDFA and G-GDFB are to be withdrawn next month. As a result on time performance should increase dramatically!

Big delay today for EXS257 from LBA to PMI with a knock on effect for the Rhodes Flight. It was G-LSAA that left eventually at 14.04Hrs. Anyone know what caused the delay as it stated Gate Closed at 8pm then later Indefinate Delay!
Was it LSAA that had a technical fault or another aircraft?
