757

Don't think baby have ever done Pisa? Regional did it as a charter a few years back if I recall. Should be a good route for Jet2 from EMA were there is a lack of Italian routes, although baby have Naples starting next spring and there has been some baby talk of other routes to Italy next year.

Germany could also do with some more routes one would have thought that Bremen or Hamburg would do ok year round, like wise FRA if the slots could be got hold of, a few weeks to CGN & MUC restarting

I think LH and BMI are happy with just BHX, otherwise EMA might work. But tou to compete for them vs LH out of BHX.

733 Flaps problem

Incident: Jet2 B733 at Manchester on Aug 26th 2011, flaps problem

Reported as the same aircraft as the one a few weeks before also
with a flaps problem.

Is this report accurate and that nothing was said to the passengers
prior to landing? I assume not serious enough for a potential "brace position" warning to the pax?

I know I would probably (or worse) if I was warned of a possible need to use the brace position, compared to blissful ignorance.

I used the replay facility on flightradar24 and it seems to match the report in terms of the approach was broken off at 4000ft and it headed north.

I noticed that the report in the Aviation Herald had the aircraft as G-CELC whilst Flight Radar had it as G-CELI.

Various SBS reports have G-CELI.

Beat me to it!! Both flights to be operated on the Boeing 737-800. Looking through the timetable, there are slots for another route(s) to be operated on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Could this be Nice which is not on sale for next summer or another new route?

LS Crete/Rhodes

Could one of these more exciting routes be a nice addition to the Jet2 Belfast, after LBA was discontinued?
Hopefully!!!

Oh dear.

I hear a wheelchair ramp was blow over in to the side of Jet2.comís Boeing 757, G-LSAE at Leeds this morning due to somebody forgetting to put the handbrake on the vehicle

I heard that the aircraftís skin has been badly damaged so itís been taken out of service. Donít know how long it will take to repair, But I know wouldnít like to see the Insurance claim for this.

Damage

I assume this is the reason for LS257 LBA-PMI "coached to Manchester"?

Now showing on Manchester departures due out 15.55.

Cancellations (PSA/VCE) as well at Leeds due to the Italian ATC strike.

I assume the 757 diversion the other way last night (Manchester to Leeds) of
the Tel Aviv was due to weather at Manchester?

The Following delay, might be due to the 757.

Jet2.com regrets to advise that the above flights will be delayed. Jet2.com sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused. These flights will now operate to the below revised schedule:

Jet2 really need to get their heads around spare aircraft to cover issues, it almost seems like one ac out of duty causes major major knock on issues at Jet2.

Jet2 have got spare aircraft sorted perfectly! The spare 757 today will operate the LBA-HER which should have gone on the back of the PMI. It's far easier to delay a PMI than a HER, and coach over to MAN where there is a spare 757 this afternoon as crew issues do not come into play as much for a shorter PMI. I don't know what airline you work for JSCL, but in every other airline I know, loosing an aircraft in the first week of september, (probably the biggest repatriation weeks of kids back to school all year) IS going to cause a major knock on issue.

I saw the gash in G-LSAE this morning, I'm sure OCS - One Crap Solution, won't be hanging around Leeds for long now as that is one expensive repair.

So how big is the gash on G-LSAE, righthandrule?

Will the Jet2 engineers be able to fix it or is it that bad to have to call in Boeing experts from Seattle. Or do you think its bad enough for Jet2 to call it a right-off and scrap the airframe?

Sounds like they've already scraped the airframe

Jet2 aircraft coverage

I think you need to have a look at what Jet2's competitors did today? Ryanair canceling Italian flights due to the strikes. Jet2 continue to operate flights to Italy despite the disruption because they don't want to just walk away from problems, on top of this an aircraft taken out of service for numerous days yet no flights cancelled and minimum delays going forward. No body is perfect but rather get to my holiday than not at all!

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.
