Jet2 won't change type any time soon. They have got a fleet of mainly owned aircraft, which in their older age will not be so easy to shift. With type change comes expense. 737-9's are more likely as they have been going a few years now and are on the second hand market already. I would also certainly not rule out the 737MAX's, but of course, these are brand new, and if ordered, would be of a fewer quantity (maybe 5 or 6). One thing for sure, they won't be changing type to Airbus, even if they do have one on lease for the summer.

I heard they're taking on ex-BA 747-400's as they are retired and are going into high density bucket and spade to Spain, etc as well as long haul Jet2 Holidays...

Higher chance taking on A340-200's than B744's. At least the 340-200s use the CFM engine, which Jet2 already have spares for.

The new aircraft order is coming. Airbus was the front runner, with the order a pretty much done deal back in Feb. Boeing got wind of the fact they were about to loose a large order to Airbus and came in with an improved offer, which is now being considered. Apparently, PM insisting that the all the Airbus conversions could be done on the cheap in Bradford was met with raucous laughter in Toulouse.

A certain someone reckons fleet order circa 70 airframes. Allegedly.

A330 wet lease cancellation may be ominous.

LCC's tend not to have a a mixed fleet, and this is part of their success. Realistically, it would be a Boeing order.

The thing about Airbus having a done deal, (allegedly, I know) is that Jet2 would use this in order to drive a better deal with Boeing. I do think they will go long haul, in the very near future, but instead, that will be with something like a 8-10yr old 767-300WL. Otherwise, I think if there is any big order, the likelihood is lots of new 737NG's, and maybe a good few 737MAX's.

If rumour stands correct, hopefully we'll all know sooner, rather than later.

Angry

I'm afraid Brigantree is correct, and all you Airliner World readers and spotters who know nothing about this delightful organisation, the fleet will remain old, tired and knackered until such time as some major investment is added! Jet2 has no money...the best thing for its future, remove the CEO and the nasty culture it's created...

Summer 2015 is going to be expensive! This company is a "ticking clock"...

Rumours?!?.....

but I can say he knows bugger all about Jet2.
...And you own the company do you?

I really hope Jet2_738 didn't use super glue to stick his jet2 Boeing posters to his wall....
Sorry, but what is that supposed to mean? Do you really think the company is going to go all Airbus? (Poor Business knowledge if you do.) This is a rumour network, Jumbo2 (read the title, of course, unless you don't know what exactly a rumour is...). The 'Big Announcement' is going to cause speculation on here, speculation that will continue until those at the top blurt it out, at what may be the Paris Air Show.

Jet2 and Jet2holidays are both very profitable, and if that means at the moment they have to use older frames, then so be it. It might be that their business model means they don't touch the south, unlike FR and EZY, who have seen that flying from London is going to earn them . I would rather see a 28yr old Jet2 733 come into NCL, than a brand sparkly new EZY Airbus A320 any day. That said, as LS are becoming increasingly profitable, rumour has it (have you found out what a rumour is yet, Jumbo2?) that they are looking into buying some new frames.

Jumbo...

Sorry I do partially agree LSP, the yellow stickers are common in all their aircrafts
You clearly know nothing about at least one of the fleets.

Half Year Results

Underlying Group operating profit increased 10% to 89.4m (2013: 81.2m) and underlying profit before tax by 14%, to 88.7m (2013: 78.1m).
After accounting for an exceptional provision of 17.0m, in relation
to possible passenger compensation claims, which may be payable in certain circumstances, for historical flight delays under EU Regulation 261, Group profit before tax, fell by 8% to 71.7m.

Jet 2 accounted for all but 2.1m of the profit.

Will do me!!
