And who says EZY is making money with such routes? Both pax numbers and yields are rubbish in the winter season, if there was really some money in it Jet2 would have already operated them. But they don't until so far, and that's probably for a good reason.

Maybe they could go for a small new leased fleet for the routes they currently run in year round.They could then keep the owned NGs which are parked in winter and retire the older 752/ 733s and older NGs. That wouldn't require too much of a tweak to the business model......just a thought.

Privilege

Just had the misfortune to fly on this cattle truck. The seats are so close together that i could not sit straight throught the entire 4 hour flight, and the seat rests extended ro somewhere from mid back to my neck therefore could not lean back neither. I am only 6 foot tall, this thing is designed to carry people of the stature of about 5ft 6 its a disgrace. There were a lot of complaints from pax ref this on the flight, when trying to disembark the gap is so narrow that it is impossible to stand up straight. Apart from the misery of my return flight which is bound to be on this crate,this will be the last time i and my family will be travelling on Jet2, Easyjet feels like first class compared to this.

Odd that as a few mates had been on that plane recently (rugby players so quite big lads) & when asked how the flight was all replied 'spot on'.

I also know some spurs fans who flew into Newcastle on it and they had no complaints.

Swings n roundabouts, isn't it.

I think it's quite common for people to over dramatise their experiences in the heat of the moment when they come straight to the forum to complain. I bet you'll be back on Jet2 again next year! (bearing in mind you didn't actually fly jet2)

As much as I do admit that the interior of the Privilege Style is a far cry from that of Jet2, its's not really as bad as what you over dramatise. You say; "this will be the last time i and my family will be travelling on Jet2". The reality is that you didn't fly on a Jet2 aircraft. You were just one of the unlucky ones who ended up on the 'cattle truck'. You really can't judge Jet2 on a plane which yourself you know is leased. If you have before flown with Jet2, you'd know that the slimline seats are designed to increase legroom, more than sufficient for someone 6ft+. You were sat in a 1980's style charter seat - Most of the EZY's that don't have the new seats installed, still have charter style, thick-cushioned seats, which admittedly aren't as comfortable as the new leather recaro ones Jet2 have. Let's hope you actually get on a Jet2 aircraft on your return, and I guarantee your opinion will change then.

As ive been working at Man for over 28 years 8 of them as a despatcher, i don,t think i will, when i started out the 757 only held 224 pax not 240 and had 5 toilets and not 3, and was comfortable ive flown on them at least 30 times but this thng is ridiculous there would be no chance of a speedy evac if something did go wrong. And the people around me on the flight thought so too. Very poor Jet2, originally we were booked on the A330 that never transpired, it seems like they want the same amount of people in this thing.

Think you're getting confused with one of the Titan a/c rather than Privilege

The reality is that you didn't fly on a Jet2 aircraft.
Splitting hairs a bit here - bet he was flying on a Jet2 ticket and paid his money to Jet2, if this was a short notice emergency substitution you might have a point but it isn't, so shouldn't be a case of being unlucky - Jet2 should offer a consistent product.

i agree that none of these airlines should be leasing something that doesnt come close or on par to what they offer on their own aircraft ! The prices are the same across the board and no one gets a cheaper holiday for flying on a leased aircraft , End of the day the majority of passengers havent got a clue about leasing aircraft so their experience will if bad will play a part in their next holiday

Yeah you're right. The Privilege Style only has 216 seats. All of the Jet2 757-200's are now fitted with 235 new slimline seats

Zfw- if you have as you say spent 28 years or 8 years (not sure which), in the industry then you should know better than spouting the utter bollox that you just have. No chance of an evac????? Really? 240 pax on a 757????

Selfishly bittersweet moment that Newcastle isn't the only airport they serve Krakow from. Looking really good for Jet2 at the minute! Onwards and upwards

Also zfw... reading your comment " this thng is ridiculous there would be no chance of a speedy evac if something did go wrong."
I just thought I'd bring your attention to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britann...ys_Flight_226A

236 passengers... Suggesting a full aircraft + 1 baby on someone's knee, job well done I'd say

Evac...

The B757-200 variant is certified for maximum PAX capacity of 239. As part of that certification, they need to be able to evacuate the entire aircraft in 90 seconds, with 50% (i.e. 4) of the doors/slides inop. I don't think there would be a problem.

...unless all the PAX insist on opening the lockers and taking their baggage with them which seems the norm these days.

Jet2 Further Expand Summer 2016 Routes

A Double Delight from Jet2.com and Jet2holidays | Jet2.com. Yesterday we saw another announcement, where Jet2 revealed a brand new city route, an extra city service from another base, and a new holiday route too. Below is a base breakdown to make it easier to understand.

The New Summer Route additions are as follows: Blue = 737-800 | Red = 737-300

From Manchester, MAN:

LS941 Girona GRO, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)
LS947 Naples NAP, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Tue, Fri)
LS949 Krakow KRK, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Thu, Sun)

From Edinburgh, EDI:

LS723 Naples NAP, B737-300, (1x Weekly - Fri)

From Newcastle, NCL:

LS525 Girona GRO, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)

From Glasgow, GLA:

LS191 Girona GRO, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)

Always good to see even further expansion, but I have noticed that LBA has had no big changes for 2016. Maybe we'll see LBA expansion come later, as it normally tends to anyway.
