Wikipedia Page shows that Jet2 have routes planned from Cardiff for May 2012. however, i think it has been edited as there is only mention on the CWL page, not on any other of the routes.
It would be brilliant if they came to CWL and would probably be their top choice out of CWL and BRS. The apron needs extending at BRS, there is no space. CWL could be in for something here, even if not this early !

Just heard that there is an airbus due to Jet2 very shortly. Source is top management.

Also will be A320. Not sure for how long tho.

A320 is to be a 'standby unit' so dont worry.

Someone did tell me who's it was going to be, but I cant remember.

Jet2 are to lease a Luxembourg registered Airbus A320 for 2 months (July/August) to be based at Manchester on standby for the whole of the Boeing 737-300 fleet due to the on going problems they seem to be suffering this summer season. Im presuming this will be Strategic Air, who have A320's.

An A320 is not much use as a standby aircaft for the 757 fleet.

Depends on airframe availability during the peak I guess TSR2....Then again when Hekla blows it top ( See GeoPhysicist report today from Pall Einarsson) , they'd be better of leasing some more Proctors coaches

TSR2, a much more sensible option than relying on subcharters arranged by an inhouse broker who takes a commission for the pleasure, you know who I mean. Looks like the 320 covers 80% of the LS fleet, a 757 to constantly cover 733's looks excessive

Yes renort I fully agree but it seems that the 757 fleet is more unreliable than the 733 fleet. I may be wrong on this but each time I notice a major delay from MAN, it always seems to be a 757.

The other day both the 738s went sick and a EMA 752 was used to fill the gap after it had finished its day job.

Doesn't seem like the a320 has been on standby much so far, seems to have been covering at least two sectors a day.

A 757 delay could be a multitude of reasons and could well be a result of 733 problems itself.

I see jet2 have another Boeing 757 aircraft out of service and it looks to have caused a big delay at LBA.
The LS217 Service to Arrecife was due out at 14:10 this afternoon but the passengers have just been informed after sitting in the LBA departure lounge for the last 10 hours or so that the aircraft is unserviceable and they won’t be going anywhere until at least 16:30 tomorrow afternoon at the earliest.

Meanwhile the awaiting the inbound LS218 service passengers out in Arrecife are to be put into a Hotel for the night..

Well the standby A320 does not appear to have helped that situation then.

I have been reliably informed it is down to "lack of crew". That is some of the current batch of new f/deck are sat on their backsides awaiting their i.d cards to be processed by HR before line training ???

They might all get on line by end of August apparently ???

This " lack of crew/ time window " was a point made back in January, but since this point was the only voice of reason ...said person has now found self "surplus to requirements"...hence the new vacancy on Aviation Job search re Ops.

Still at least there will be a surplus of crews/airframes come Winter and with FR moving into MAN with 4 a/c...new bases in CWL and NWI could be in the offing on 50% contracts for those seeking a move south

Hi P*** - er I mean F-dog, seems your insider info is not very reliable.
Jet2.com are just protecting their loyal customers and reducing delays - this has nothing to do with crews!

F-dog where have you got this information about new bases - At Cardiff. I thought that that was not happening.

Sorry Miss Informed, but I have to agree with what FDD says with regard to delays in getting people on line.

I have a contact that is still 'on the sidelines' awaiting completion of training that he started in February and is anticipating completing in August...

10 of the 26 new FR routes ex MAN are already served by Jet 2 and 6 by MON so MAN Airport cant be doing themselves any favours there.

I'd also like to know what the misleading pop-up box is doing on the front page of the website which claims "fares now include all taxes and charges", yet after selecting your flights and continuing with an onlnie booking a mysterious £10 check-in fee appears in your basket without you selecting anything. This IS as an additional charge!

I hope this gets resolved before Watchdog get hold of it...

I've been waiting for someone to mention this. If rumour I heard a few weeks ago is correct, you could be on to something.
