Unsure which 738 was unable to operate the route from GLA today, but the quick standby crews mean that the flight is due into MJV 5 mins early!
Looks to have been the Titan A320 that couldn't operate the MJV due to a lengthy previous delay but I stand to be corrected.

generally your posts bore the living pants off most of the readers here
I do apologise, that I bore you, but I intend to be a regular contributor, unlike some. Quite Frankly, if you find them boring, then please do just skip ahead - you are not obliged to read them.

Thanks. Good to see that they were able to avoid delays sending a 752 up there

I seem to recall the moderator of the AA and R section commenting some time ago that posts which contained reference to aircraft registrations had no place on here.


Some people will no doubt welcome your posts, but may I endorse S1E's comments above, and suggest that you open a new thread within Spectators Balcony for them.

Can you seriously not just grow up and see that there are lots of people who are finding your posts trivial and put them in the spotters forum where they belong?

That's fine, no-one is saying anything different. Just post your spotters comments in the appropriate place. This forum relates to Airline Business.

Glad it's not just me. I rarely bother any more with this thread. The sickeningly pro Jet2 posts and constant shooting down of anyone who dare question Jet2 (or God forbid actually criticise Jet2) put me off a long time ago.

Thumbs up Jet2_738

As you seem to be an 'irritating user', could you please move your postings to the Spotters Corner, thank you.

Let's please leave this thread to news on Jet2 business, be it positive or negative from those in the know and those who wish to know.

EDI-NAP which was only announced over the last couple of weeks is now no longer on sale. Additional FAO rotation added on the Friday in place of NAP. Anyone know if the route been dropped already or just temporarily removed from sale?

Paris Air Show starts tomorrow doesn't it? Wonder if Jet2 announce these new jets they've supposedly bought/buying/leasing this coming week?

Still can't see Jet2 going from Boeing to Airbus.

The announcement was originally imminent in Februray, then it was Paris, then it was Farnborough, now we're told September. We were told Airbus was a done deal, now we hear Boeing...

Zzzzzzzzz

One particular gnome is reporting an order of 62 A320/21, plus options. Another reporting Jet2 directors spotted talking to Airtanker at Brize Norton, another spotted Boeing executives, another spotted P&W executives.

Zzzzzzzzz

Anyone else heard any good ones? All above are "genuine rumours".

I heard from a reliable source that management were spotted in Ulyanovsk with a view to placing an order for 60 TU204 with 15 options:
40 Tu204 300 to replace the 737 300's and 737 800's
+5 Tu204 300 combi to replace the 737 300 combi
15 Tu 204SM to replace the 757's

It should be firmed at MAKS 2015 in Moscow and production will be ramped up to 5/7 per year to cover Jet2's deliveries and their existing backlog. A spokesperson said "We hope that delivery will begin by Q2 2017 when we will receive our first 3 next generation Tupolev aircraft, around 5 aircraft per year should be delivered thereafter" he went on to say "our final delivery should take place in Q3 2029, coinciding with the retirement of our final 737 800 which will have reached the end of it's viable service life around that time"

Here's hoping, lets see what happens

Like it - but I bet your humour will be lost on a few! Must admit I thought that irony was a genre of humour lost on the younger generation. Thanks for disproving me.

Ha ha! Well done. This is probably gospel on some other forums by now.

Last I heard was the A330's are still planned for next summer..? No idea about any fleet replacement, heard rumours but would buying new really be feasible given the seasonal nature of operations?

All Airbus fleet would be nice, but would render the spanking new training facility obsolete.. 😉

I reckon more 738's(possibly some 737's too?) to replace the 733's and perhaps eventually the 752's, with the talked of A330's to soak up some of the higher density routes currently operated by the 752's, and of course the special departures to New York.. The only missing piece in the puzzle would then be the QC replacement..?
