Spotilludrop has previous on this forum chaps (don't bother denying it)
Can't quite bring my brain to remember all his previous monikers, one was Topspotter if you want to look back at his previous sh*te, but he was either banned or changed I.D under his own volition a few years ago.
Somebody with a better memory might remember more.........
In his previous incarnation, he was a vicious Jet2 slagger and a Spotty M love in merchant.
Was previously always questioning Jet 2's safety record and aircraft age policy.
You guys inconvenient truth's about Monarch's cocked up (on this occasion) engineering efforts will have really gotten his goat hence the repeated attempts to argue with people who clearly know much better than him.
Don't feed the troll.................

Yeah, G-LSAC was ferried back to MAN as EXS046A last night.
The aircraft theat went tech in DBV, G-GDFH, is now based at LBA, while we've got G-CELS it its place.

I have noticed that alongside G-POWM leased from ZAP at GLA, we have also had G-POWK at MAN since yesterday, operating under the Channex callsign.

G-POWK was ferried up from STN as EXS041A to MAN yesterday, where it operated LS801/2 from MAN to VCE. It was due to return last night to STN as EXS043A, but somehow didn't and has operated the LS931/2 from MAN-MLA today. Any ideas as to why she is still at MAN?

Jet2 Manchester Airport Hangar

As far as I am aware, there are currently no hangars up for sale at MAN. In fact, the only hangar for sale in the entire MAG Group is at Hangar 29 at EMA: Property Search - MAG Property: Office, Warehouse & Logistics Property in the UK

The hangar at EMA is 114,000 sq ft, and can accommodate up to 5 737-800's in at a time for maintenance. The hangar can also accommodate 757s for maintenance. It is specifically designed for MRO ops, and of course is located at one of Jet2's bases. It also claims that the hangar has previously, and can fit a 767 in, by positioning the tail outside. Other than MAN, I believe this is the biggest hangar on Jet2's base network.

I am not saying that Jet2 are going to buy this hangar, but think if they were to purchase one, this one would be the most viable

Flight number? Was it LS940? As far as I am aware, if you are referring to LS940, on 31/05/15, it departed 24 mins late, and arrived 10 mins late at 14:40BST into MAN. Slight delay, likely caused by pax slow boarding, baggage handlers slow putting bags on, refuelling taking longer than expected etc. Minutes here and there do add up

----------

G-GDFW operating service LS561 from NCL-DLM has diverted to PRG this evening, no change in squawk. It is now back en route to DLM so an offload at PRG. Does anyone know why?

Thumbs down

Any ideas as to why she is still at MAN?
Well, basically, it's due to a VERY out-dated, freight mentality business model and an out-dated CEO with marginal people management skills adding up to be one of the worst airlines to be employed by in the UK in both terms and culture, creating massive staff turnover and with an ageing, unreliable fleet and minimum crew numbers somewhat exposes the program! The word is certainly out on Jet2 and attracting quality experience with type-ratings is a thing of the past, hence the training department is also creaking at the seams!

Huge expense in crew logistics, more roster disruption to already appalling rosters, and we all know how expensive Titan Airways are.

When the arrogance of those running this company subsides and they stop believing they are re-inventing the wheel and think they are something special, it may just have a future...it's confirming it's just a poor 'number 4' in the UK...

Summer 2015 is going to be bad for them...and this is before the big Norwegian and Ryanair push in 2016/17...

Everyone I know that left my company are now looking to leave...

I think it varies a fair bit some aircraft have recently been completely overhauled and are like new inside , A fair others however are looking a bit tired, Anyway the new fleet will address these issues

As FAIK its true, Bottom line is they cannot carry on much longer with the old fleet, It must be very costly to operate a fleet so old with all the increased associated costs fuel , Engineering , delays and so on

New fleet

Well i assume by new they/you mean an order for new build equipment ? just what are the lead times on new build 737/A320's ? When ZB placed their order nearly a year ago the delivery date was 2018+

I think most of the 737 production is sold out until the Max comes on line in 2017

If they are leasing from a lessor then they will need to fly their socks of year around, not something the current business model allows for and not something that can be done from most of their Northern bases except perhaps Manchester

A mixed fleet will only add to their rostering issues

Maybe your right however how much longer can they carry on with the fleet as it is ? Maybe the current business model needs to change

I think the problem is how can you change the business model from the airports that they operate from, put simply there are no routes that will support year round high frequency city pairs from the likes of LBA/NCL/EMA

They can't support daily AGP in winter from LBA

Winter routes

FLB.

However a thrice weekly NCE would work all year round. The daily EZY from LPL does it with many pax from the MAN catchment area.
