Delays

Incident: jet2.com B733 at Manchester on Aug 9th 2011, flaps problem

Not the one you are on about TSR2 but I thought I would throw this one in
as well but is dated today, inbound from Nice not Malaga.

AV Herald is getting well populated with Jet2 at the moment!!!

The Malaga at a guess is a 738 per the play-back on the outbound flight LS809 flightradar24 (from this morning) and I assume it got as far as Malaga as it was showing to about 5000ft.

Pete

The 738 LS810 left Malaga about 21.45 (UK Time) after about a 12 hour stay.

Maybe it`s a language problem, but waiting 2 weeks for a witty retort like the last post....
BTW not very funny and nothing to do with Jet2 either.

I can't say whether Monarch Aircraft Engineering are world renowned or not but they are, in my humble opinion, amongst the very best.

Does it matter how long it takes to reply do You think that if all the Monarch engineers went to Jet2 there on time departures would improve, I would think Jet2 engineers are just as experienced and good at there job as monarch engineers?

Ciampino,
The point is that know one is arguing with you, you seem to be able to do it all by yourself.

Can I just ask when does the other 733 leave the fleet. And will the 2 aircraft leased from Allegiant go this year?

Well Allegiant have now got the go-ahead to operate to the Hawaiian Islands so I would expect they will want them back sooner rather than later unless of course their plans have changed.

The following was posted on 26 June 2011 in this thread, or something similar, but for some reason better known to themselves, it was deleted by the MODS:
G-CGET & G-GDFA will be leaving with 3 737-800's and 2 757's coming, as their replacement and for further expansion from various bases.


From the Allegiant Air website the news is as follows on 6 July 2011:
LAS VEGAS Ė Allegiant has obtained approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to begin operating the Boeing 757-200 aircraft type.


Allegiantís operating fleet now consists of 51 MD-80 aircraft and one Boeing 757-200 aircraft. The company owns three additional 757-200 aircraft, which are being leased to two European carriers until mid-2012. These aircraft are expected to be introduced into Allegiantís fleet during the first quarter of 2012.


According to Jethro's:
G-CGET 27455/2709 B733-33A was registered to AWAS on 28 July 2011 and therefore no longer with JET2.
G-GDFE 24131/1541 B733-3Q8-QC (Quick Change) was acquired by JET2 and delivered to LBA on 23 July 2011.


G-GDFA, the white painted B733 with a red tail is still in the fleet according to Jethro's.


There has been no news concerning the two B752s belonging to Allegiant Air, which will appear to need replacing sometime before the summer 2012 and a further two B752s would appear to be needed, if the original post on 26 June is correct, making a total of 4 new B752s. Further another 3 B738s would be needed for summer 2012 with the larger programmes at all bases.

It will be very interesting to see where they get the B752s from, as they are proving to be very popular and not readily available in the market at the moment.

G-GDFA is departing this October. As already mentioned, G-CGET has already left. G-GDFE has recently arrived and will act as a standby aircraft for the royal mail network during the night and passenger services during the day - stationed at NCL from the 2nd Sept.

Glasgow base goes from 1x733 & 1x752 to 2x738 & 1x752. East Midlands will become a mixed 733 & 752 base from 2012. A further 3 738's are due, bringing the total to 5 - MAN x3, GLA x2.

I believe the 2 leased Allegiant 757's will continue to operate next summer, however this is not confirmed. As it stands, the new additions for next summer will be the 3x 738's only. I would expect further new bases to be 738 only and further fleet rationalisation, one base at a time. Over the next 12 months, I'm sure MAN will be a 738/757 base only with 733's leaving the fleet in favour of 738's albeit a handful each year.

I hear from my buddies at my former airline (jet2) that the two allegiant 757s will be replaced by 767s, apparently planned for 2012 introduction.

Have we not been here before a couple of years ago with rumours of Jet2 getting B767? It does however seem like a good idea, having tested the US market a bit with winter shoppign trips to NYC in the B757

righthandrule:
Thanks for the update on the fleet and new future additions.


It was two years next October that JET2 were advertisiing for B767 Type Rated pilots and although there were leasing contracts for B763s drawn up, they were never signed.


Now the rumours are about again and the odd sign on the ground that a couple of B763s may be joining the fleet. Curiously MartinAir are returning 3 B763ERs (just under 20 years old) on 30 October 2011, as they are converting to freight only as from 1 November 2011. The maintenance history on these B763s should be reliable and if the engine types are acceptable, here is a good opportunity for JET2 and just in time.


The New York trips were also run last year but don't think they are market testers.


IF........ the B763s are ever leased by JET2, they will probably be used initially to cover high density routes.
