Is this speculation or known information?

Based A/C

Does anyone know what aircraft will be based at East Midlands for S16? few months back they said they would be basing larger aircraft at MAN, LBA & EMA. Not sure if that meant replacing the 737-300's with more -800's.

Any Spotters/Jet2_738 want to take a shot as to who/type the wet/damp leases will be this summer?
... Privilege will NOT be turning up

Does anyone know if the purchase of 30 new 737-800s is part of a plan to eventually go to a simplified 1 aircraft type fleet? If so when are the 737 - 300s and 757s likely to leave the fleet? I assume that as Jet2 are still picking up used 737-800s that they intend to run a mixed fleet of new and second hand for some time.
757 and 300 fleet due to retire post 2020. Both are being refitted with expensive equipment, so unlikely to be disappearing soon. Presumably most 757s will stay. Significant money has been spent fitting winglets to some 300s and not others, which tells its own tale.

As to consolidation towards a streamline 800 fleet; those "in the know", you know, those "knowledgable" management pilots who assured us Airbus was a done deal, are now telling us that the 30 new NGs may include 900ERs. And even more laughable, a Max or two!

Nothing is 100% confirmed but this is what is being speculated and I'm confident it will happen.

I believe more information will be available in the New Year once plans have been finalised.

Watch this Space.

It's safe to say Privlidge won't be returning however.

I think the 75's (well, some at least) are planned to hang on until 2023.

Instead of G-POWM maybe. Don't UX aircraft have business class seating though? So won't be 189Y interchangeable. Mind you G-POWM was 180Y.

From what I understand the plans are as follows;

Titan 757-200 LBA Based
An A320/A321 MAN Based - Unsure of Operator
Air Europa 737-800 GLA Based

This is what ive heard but plans have been known to change

Yet another Jet2 PR disaster

BBC RIP OFF BRITAIN
Gloria Hunniford reports that of the eleven airlines they asked about defibrillators being carried on board Jet2 were the only airline that DIDN'T BOTHER to reply.
As in the stations we scrimp and save every penny, in our glorious head office people are being paid to sit on their arses and ignore phone calls from Britain's most important broadcaster.
Nice one Jet2.

More shocking is that Gloria Hunniford is Britain's most important broadcaster.

That is because non of their aircraft carry them, on top of that I do believe only the NG's have a doctors kit on board.

Oh my God! Imagine what it was like several years ago when none of their aircraft carried the doctor's kit!

Question - what would be the point of carrying a doctor's kit on aircraft with no HF?

An A320/A321 MAN Based - Unsure of Operator
The A321 is now showing up in the schedules, we've got flights booked in September to Arrecife that were originally 757 now showing as a 36 row/212 seat A321 (specifically a 321-212 in the source suggesting it's a CFM powered aircraft).

Let's see, maybe to let a medical professional presenting appropriate credentials to access potentially lifesaving medications in flight? Probably whilst the aircraft is diverting to a suitable airfield for additional medical assistance.

Several years ago all airplanes were made of wood as well.
This doesn't mean we shouldn't go along and embrace the modern technology and safety measures.

But to answer your question the doctor's kit has nothing to do with HF. The kit can be used by medical professionals. Operators normally have an insurance to cover the liability of the medical professional while trying to save a pax their life. (I've left Jet2 and can't check if they have this insurance, but presume they have)

HF (fitted on some of the Jet2 classics and NG's) can be used for contacting MedLink (or MedAire in Jet2 their case) via Stockholm radio. They can only give advice what treatment should be given, support the medical professional/cabin crew and advise if a diversion is necessary, if it is they arrange the medical readiness at the diversion airport.

Carrying a defibrillator on board and having the crew trained in its use should be pretty much standard. Luckily most UK airlines do have one onboard.
