Exciting news! I wonder if they're to support expansion / replace examples of other types. Can't wait to find out where they will be based.

Check your PMs!

Like I said, they may have placed an order, but I'd prefer to see firm proof from Jet2 or Airbus before believing the source completely

I hope the source is more reliable than PPJN. Someone showed me this over there and I had to chuckle.

I believe it joins at the end of the month, as my company is looking after it at MAN.

Many thanks to all for the detailed information.

Looking forward to the big announcement. Someone said, some time back, that the moment could be the Paris Air Show in mid June.
If it is to be an Airbus order then my bet is the aircraft will be based at MAN and LBA.

A321 - 757 Not even close!

^^ Totally Agree! The only true replacement for the 757 will only ever be another 757.

The 757 is almost unique..The acid test of comparability would be say Gibraltar. A fully laden 757 can and for many years did land and take off there. The A321 can`t do either unless empty...Not anywhere near the same flexibility

The A321neoLR (Long Range) appears to be able to carry a similar number of passengers and fly a similar maximum range as the B757-200 but with about 25% less fuel consumption. Nevertheless it's doubtful that the useful and versatile lifespan of the A321neoLR will be comparable to the B752.

Well the 321 can do 95% of missions with 25% less fuel burn. Can't imagine there's much demand for a 757 load to GIB anyway.

The A321 Neo LR will be a fantastic 757 replacement that's for sure. Doesn't it also have a wider cabin (a big plus in my eyes).

You obviously don`t know but Monarch operated, for many years, the 757 on their routes to GIB..They only changed when the A320 came into service and the 757`s went onto charter..Used them year round in fact and often full loads

Thumbs up

Wait. Is this the same Gibraltar that Jet2 don't even fly to???

Your GIB example is completely pointless. LS have 757s, they don't fly them to GIB on a regular scheduled basis.

A321 Vs B757

Yep. But with a 15 ton max take off difference the unfortunate pax won't also be able to take their cases with them...

Agree on the fuel burn though.

Back to J2...
