Jet2 air rage yob who terrorised cabin crew on flight to Ibiza - gets hit with 2,700 bill - Mirror Online
A good idea but getting a bill and paying a bill are rather different.
Will he pay, I rather doubt it.

Yes but clearly the whole point of this initiative isn't to get a few grand out of these people, it's to get the message out through the media that Jet2 isn't an airline which will tolerate this kind of behaviour. It will leave you stranded at whichever airport they divert to and it will have you arrested and it will ban you for life and it will bill you. Got to be some kind of a deterrent - good on them!

Will he pay now probably not but when the High Court Bailiffs arrive at his door unannounced with a warrant to seize and an inflated bill nearer 5,000 he will else find himself bankrupted AND sans Tele/PC and car !

The days have gone when these debts aren't recovered by businesses !

Yes, I agree. But we are talking about Jet2 here.

and it say jet2 which fly's from Glasgow Edinburgh and Aberdeen?
didn't think jet2 did flights from Aberdeen is this a new base we don't know about.
They don't fly from Aberdeen currently but the ABZ social media pages have been hinting at the last week or so of an "exciting, big announcement" that is imminent.

Consensus on the ABZ board is that it is going to be a based LCC operating long overdue leisure flights out of ABZ. LS themselves have previously expressed an interest in operating out of ABZ.

Mirror article perhaps knows something or is it usual UK tabloid reporting standards?

I remember that FlyGlobespan tried to make a go at ABZ in the 00's but it was tough going up there back then. Maybe things are different now. I doubt Aberdeen can sustain more then a couple of B733s and some VERY carefully chosen routes.

Sun From ABZ

..... Monarch tried too - from AGP. Great loads, the only problem was that those canny Aberdonians wouldn't pay a penny more than the equivalent service from MAN, so you had 50 minutes extra flying for zero incremental revenue. Jet 2 beware!

The problems started when Globespan showed up. Contrary to toons post, loads AND yields were good for Monarch until GS showed up offering a whole other range of destinations. The problem is that the market just ain't that big from ABZ and with more choice came lower yields until the airport ended up with next to nothing.

189 on the 800, 220 on the 900 due to addition of another emergency exit.

Company announcement mentions "improved and stylish new cabin interior". I really hope someone has taken note of the lovely relaxed feeling inside the all light grey G-POWM that has been on lease from Titan. At a time when the company is focused on reducing stressful situations in the cabin, it is high time the garish, bright red and dark grey interiors were dropped from all Jet a/c and certainly not repeated in any new a/c purchased.

Interesting statement from PM that this new order is for both replacement and expansion. They operate 17 x B738 at the moment so will have 10 extra frames available if only those are replaced. However some of the 733 fleet are approaching 30 years old so it may be a "mix and match" situation - an increase in seats either way...
