Happily given Jet2 our money to fly NCL-AGP-NCL in July/August, out on a "new" 738, coming back on a 733. I'll let you all know how it is, I'm confident they'll be absolutely fine as usual

The ALC aircraft would not be there if it weren't for EU261.
It doesn’t make sense to base two B733s at ALC to cover for aircraft with mechanical problems. The B733 can only carry 149 passengers and JET2 have the B738 with 189 passengers and the B752 with 235 passengers. It should be remembered that the B752s were re-allocated to LBA and MAN, so that they could be used to cover for delays etc., due to possible claims under EU261.

In the case of the Faro incident, G-LSAC is a B752 with a carrying capacity of 235 passengers and G-CELS that went to the rescue can only accommodate 149 passengers. Obviously in this particular case JET2 hit lucky and the flight back from Faro most probably only had 149 passengers or less. In any event the ALC based B733s are normally quite busy flying passengers to and from the JET2 UK bases.

For AENA, the Spanish airports’ authority, the fact that a UK airline has chosen ALC as a base must carry a certain amount of prestige and perhaps that in turn gives JET2 certain privileges. There is no evidence that this is the case but this arrangement is much more likely than using ALC as a base to send a B733 to rescue a full plane load from a B752 or a B738.

Sean Dillon: Congratulations! Though it does sound too good to be true. In any case please keep us updated on the BA Direct Entry Pilot forum under Terms and Endearment, doubtless your experiences at BA will be more appreciated there.

How do the bases look for Jet2 for summer 2015? Someone posted them all a while back I think but I can't find them.

I know Newcastle is 3 733, 3 738 but I'm oblivious as to the rest...

NCL seems to be 4x733 and 2x738 at the moment, could change later in the season of course.

As far as I know:

ALC: 2x 733
BFS: 3x 733 1x 73F
EMA: 3x 733 3x 738
EDI: 4x 733
GLA: 5x 738 1x 320
LBA: 7x 733 (2 spare) 2x 738 5x 752 (1 spare)
MAN: 6x 733 (1 spare) 3x 738 7x 752 (1 spare + 1 leased from Privilege)
NCL: 3x 733 3x 738


Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
You have allocated 58 aircraft above including 1 x Titan A320 and 1 x Privilege B752. The JET2 fleet stands at a total of 58 airframes at the moment and 60 if you include the Titan and Privilege aircraft. G-JZHD, the new B738 is still to be allocated a base perhaps, which would account for one, so there would appear to be one aircraft that has not been allocated to a base from your list. Perhaps GLA is 6 x B738 + 1 x A320 but maybe you know better.

NCL's new routes to Malta, Antalya etc. And a few frequency/aircraft upgrades are coming at the end of May which I think sees a 733 swapped for a 738 if I'm not mistaken

Edit: Thank you very much for your help!

EK77WNCL - be interesting to see if the 738 is used for the Pisa route or stick with the 733's.

I mentioned in the NCL thread I'd like to see some growth on the city routes (Krakow, Prague, Pisa, Rome etc.) and using the 738's would be a great start, alas they all appear to be 733's this year still

Interesting to see EXS cooperating with other tour operators (than Jet2holidays). Certainly helps to support routes which would otherwise, quite probably, be uneconomical.

So did the passengers get stranded in Rome that were stuck out there? Did they put an extra flight on for them to get home?

The airport is currently operating a reduced service, and passengers have been offered free transfers onto the next available flight. Load factors as far as I am aware were not full, and the only LS Flights affected according to the status page were todays and tommorows MAN Flights. Any pax out there should hopefully be loaded onto Saturday's return flight. It is a possibility that LS could put a 752 on the route on Saturday to allow extra passengers to get on, instead of the usual 733.

Wasn't just the Manchester service that was cancelled. Jet2 had to cancel all 5x UK services that were due into Rome Fiumicino today and 1 tomorrow

Todays cancelled flights
LS135 = GLA-FCO / LS136 = FCO-GLA (Next available flight Sunday 10th)
LS331 = LBA-FCO / LS332 = FCO-LBA (Next available flight Sunday 10th)
LS359 = BFS-FCO / LS360 = FCO-BFS (Next available flight Sunday 10th)
LS537 = NCL-FCO / LS538 = FCO-NCL (Next available flight Sunday 10th)
LS791 = MAN-FCO / LS792 = FCO-MAN (Next available flight Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th)
Tomorrow's cancellations
LS791 = MAN-FCO / LS792 = FCO-MAN (Next available flight Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th)

BBC says British Airways have had to cancel 8x flights, whilst 1 flight was diverted to Naples. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-32622652

More bad news for Jet2.com this week as more pilots handed in their notice.
In other news, More bad news for <insert airline name here> this week as more pilots handed in their notice.

People leave for a variety of reasons and from a variety of airlines. I'm sure they (the airline and the pilots) will cope.

Jet2 4

Whilst I can't prove it, granted, my gut feeling is that the only compatible UK airline that has had more resignations in the last 12 months is Monarch, and that's because people thought they were going bust. Jet2 have a healthy balance sheet, yet still people jump ship en masse. Actions really do speak louder than words
