G-LSAE

I'm pretty sure that LSAE is now retired at LBA and Jet2 will be using it for spares.

From the performance of some of their other airframes this summer they could do to retire a few more of their geriatric fleet too!

Slipped up there. G-LSAE is being repaired after being clobbered by an OCS vehicle while it was on the stand.

I should have said that G-GDFA has been retired and is going to be used for spares. Sorry for the confusion.

Just received an email to say (some) of the LBA-PFO flights (including mine) in November will be via EMA. Any ideas why?

Commonest causes are either poor forward bookings, or shortage of aircraft and or staff

EMA

I have just checked the EMA schedule for this winter and nearly fell off my chair.

From the second week in November just two flights a week - yes from two based aircraft to two flights a week and then it is just a weekly TFS until Christmas after PFO stops. It is the same in the New Year, one TFS flight a week from the second week in January until March.

I assume the ski flights just didn't work?

Quite incredible, I know most of the aircraft are owned and why fly an aircraft in winter to lose money but a base with one flight a week???

Good evening,

Rumour has it that Jet2.com have expressed a possible interest in starting routes at Aberdeen now that the 124m runway extension is complete and open for business.

After the collapse of flyglobespan a few years back - I always thought that Jet2.com would make a good replacement considering most Aberdonians have to either put up with the odd Thomas Cook/Thomson charter flight to Palma/Dalaman or take a drive south and fly from Edinburgh/Glasgow.

Does anyone have any further/firm info?

I thought too that Je2 would be interested. However, there may be weight restrictions to operate certain routes.

If Thomas Cook can operate a rather full Boeing 757-200 to Dalaman, approx. 1700nm from ABZ, surely Jet2 would have no serious weight constraints to worry about! I hope it is only a matter of time before they start - even BA and BMI are starting to operate the odd charter to Palma, cashing in on extra revenue - the demand is certainly there for more summer routes and the runway extension is an invitation to airlines such as Jet2 to Aberdeen. Fingers crossed!

CabinCrewe,

When Flyglobespan operated from ABZ with 1 based A/C the demand was quite high, at least to the routes and the frequencies they operated, IIRC to ALC, AGP, FAO, PMI and TFS, around 2/3 weekly each. They had a 737-700 based there, but even used the 737-800 during some of the summer peaks so the demand was definetly there.

Jet2 could very well replace that gap left from GSM for sure.

Jet2 have done a fantastic job in opening up the base and route structure that they have in the last few years, i do worry that they are speading themselves quite thin, i think GLA was a good move for them.

Further to LPFR's reply, have a look at this:
Aberdeen has fastest rise in disposable incomes - FT.com

I too would like to see the return of ALC flights, used Globespan several times and they were always well patronised.

For sure there is some demand in ABZ for Med's, but not sure how much, its a long way in a 737 and a lot of fuel, filling a 757 will be a bigger challenge! so perhaps a couple a week over the very short peak summer months.

Jet2 are very busy on good quality TV add across the north midlands, but with so few flights out of EMA it seems a waste, we are a few months away from the peak booking period for next summer and the market trend is for people to leave it much later, mainly because of the economic uncertainty.

Dose anyone know if jet2 are operating any Hajj charter flights to Jeddah this year again using the Boeing 757 fleet?

As for the previous couple off years they have operated flights from there bases at LBA, MAN and EMA.

Here's a question - Will the pilgrims be able to bring holy water back from their homage? I hope so.
