The bean counters can save pennies short term farming maintenance out the cheapest bider but long term it bites you on the arse and the price has to paid to put things right

Meanwhile, her sister G-LSAB operating service LS271 to ALC has had a medical divert to TLS, though is back on her way to ALC, due to land at 13:00CEST.
No, the divert into TLS was to dump off a disruptive passenger actually Jet2 Promise Zero Tolerance After Incident On Leeds Bradford Flight | Local | News - Pulse 1

Given the reported dreadfull condition AA was found to be to be in during its maintenance im surprised the delays were not even longer getting it back into ship shape order
Evidence??? Given the total foul up by Monarch Engineering it's no real surprise it was laid up for longer than anticipated

From Jet2's Website: Jet2.com Takes Zero Tolerance Stance | Jet2.com

Just today, Friday 29th May, Jet2.com has given a lifetime ban to a male, Grant Marshall on a flight to Alicante from Leeds Bradford Airport. The individual was on one of a party of 14 who was asked on numerous times to stop consuming illicit alcohol, using intimidating language and threatening behaviour.
“Due to his unacceptable behaviour onboard, the pilot diverted the flight to Toulouse where the disruptive passenger was handed over to the police authorities and the remaining travelers continued onto Alicante. As well as Grant Marshall delaying holidaymakers, he could now be facing prosecution for his behaviour and could be found liable for the costs of the divert, which will run into thousands of pounds.”
Following this incident, Jet2.com has already received a number of calls from passengers on-board the flight thanking and congratulating the airline on taking this stance.


As Johnny [email protected] Pants correctly said, the divert (G-LSAB) was due to a passenger behavioural issue. Jet2's official statement, and the above can be found here.

The repair was done by Monarch, so hardly farmed out to the cheapest bidder, it did not take them that long, until they (Monarch) had to rectify their own mistake. Your relative is not as well informed as he thinks.

An excellent reputation indeed, but they made an absolute howler whilst completing the required jobs in this one.

I have no knowledge of any corrosion, he might well be correct, but the delay was not attributable to that, it was down to the clanger made by the maintenance team.

Monarch

Monarch did indeed do a magnificent repair of the aircraft. But it was at this point they made a massive mistake. It was this that caused the delay.
I'm sorry Spot, but you are just not aware of all the facts.

Anyone any ideas as to why G-LSAD en route from LBA to FAO turned back into MAN before continuing its journey? G-LSAI operated LS875 from MAN to FAO, so I assume reason was not to pick up pax.

Acccording to my source there was never any chance of the aircraft meeting its original deadline due to the state it was discovered to be in and clearly unlike past maintenance providers monarch were not prepared to cut corners ....

Is this because they're getting ready to announce the growth from Leeds East next year then? Do tell....

Really ..So the aircraft was not in a very poor state and monarch who have been maintaining the 757 since the early 1980,s and are the company who Jet 2 had to turn to when the CAA almost grounded the jet2 757 fleet due to poor maintenance just cocked up ....mmmm

Spot

It's starting to get embarrassing now spot.
You do not know the facts.

Monarch made a really good professional job of the repair and then made a right royal boo boo. It was only at this point did Boeing get involved.
I suggest your source goes away and checks his facts.

We all know that the aeroplane is relatively old, and that by the time it gets to the stage where it has to go for heavy maintenance that it will be ready for some TLC, I suggest that when most aeroplanes go for their heavy maintenance, regardless of age that they are ready for it.

So, Spot, some of what you say regarding AA might well be close to being correct, but as with all these types of things, by the time the Chinese whisper gets as far as you it's turned from a routine bit of corrosion to an airframe under risk! All repairable, as was evidently completed, but believe me, and Check Mags On and Bluepilot, somebody at Monarch made a huge error that almost rendered the aeroplane irreparable, and only after Boring had been involved, and extra weeks in the hangar is it now back out earning a living. I feel sure that Monarch will be having to make some rather large compo payments for the error. Now I'm not having a dig at Monarch maintenance, they have a fabulous reputation, and usually do a great job, they fouled up big time on this one though, but we all make mistakes don't we?

JFP We will have agree to disagree then , As said my source works for jet 2 so cannot see any reason he would over egg the pudding so to speak ,However main thing is the plane is hopefuly good for plenty more flying and will hopefuly provide jet 2 with reliable safe service over the coming months
Im actually flying with jet 2 to corfu later this month so who knows i may have the pleasure of flying on her.

G-GDFH Tech

It appears that G-GDFH, Boeing 737-300WL has gone tech down in DBV, after operating service LS569 from NCL. G-LSAC is currently en route as EXS045A from MAN to pick up the passengers. G-GDFH was scheduled to operate services LS533/4 to PMI this afternoon, however, as to avoid delays on this service also, G-CELG has positioned to NCL as EXS048A to take the service.

Edit (19:00): G-GDFH is now back in the air as EXS047A.
