Spot till u drop

Given your fairly transparent motives for posting on PPRuNe, and your vacuous and rather offensive comments about people and places that aren't your local town, are we to assume your views would totally change if Jet2 was to open a base at BHX?

Anyone know why the company PA31 has visited SEN three times recently? Interested in the vacant former ATC Lasham hangar perhaps....?

Yes spot some of our equipment was very tired and down at heel however last year most of the 757 fleet were very expensively overhauled and TBH when they came out of the hangar they were like new aircraft so i think your a bit out of touch...

I used Jet2 to travel between Murcia San Javier and Edinburgh perhaps three times a year, maybe more. The aircraft was always full on these flight so I am wondering why this route has been abandoned entirely, does anyone know the reason why?

One word - YIELD

The aircraft can make more money on another route. Whilst Murcia flights are always full, the passengers don't book much luggage and pitch up with their own lunch. There are also almost no Jet2Holidays passengers onboard, that is where the real money lies.

If yield is the driving force behind the scheduling of your flights, why then does the MAN NCE service, (a premium route looking at the prices jet2 charge) disappear during the winter? The Orange opposition continues from LPL year round. The MAN NCE MAN flights are usually full and the moans from the pax near the end of season flights are quite loud, even taking into account the demographic of the pax load!

I'll speculate that it'll be that same word again - YIELD.

Whilst many may moan at the lack of a winter MAN-NCE service there must be a lack of overall need. As you say, easyJet operate from LPL, perhaps that capacity is all that is needed from the NW in the winter. If there were to be a service from MAN too that might well split the load factors making neither operation worthy and soon there'd be none.

Like you said yourself spottilludrop, you've flown with Jet2 once, and not again. When was this if I might ask? As Brigantee has very correctly stated, the 757, albeit the remainder of the fleet has had a complete refurbishment, and even the old-timers are still looking well for their age. You say 'the aircraft interior was falling to pieces with gaffer tape holding it together', thus making me assume you haven't seen the new interior, meaning the last time you flew with them was like 2008!? The whole fleet now is fitted with the slimline seats, which I might add makes them look fairly smart and modern, quite the flipside to what you describe.

The Low Cost Sector is ever changing. Alot has changed in the last 8 years

Well said , how any could complain at the state of the cabins is beyond me
Pains me to say but monarch did a excelent job with the 757 fleet last winter and they were to my eyes anyway like brand new aircraft

Just read today monarch may be looking to buy into another airline perhaps a merger would be a good idea
Its a matter of time. Jet2 and Monarch have an identical product and complimentary (mostly) networks. Like BMI/Virgin, there are obvious deals in the UK airline business. The latter was thwarted by the "big personalities" of Branson/Bishop, but would have gone through if logical, rational investors were in charge. Mantagazza has gone, so we just have to wait for Meason to retire and then the obvious deal will go through.

B737 fleets in both businesses, both businesses are now Low Cost airlines with a holiday company attached, one strong in the north, one strong in the south.

A matter of time and the retirement of a very big ego.

As far as I know Blackpool was never a crew base, all flights were operated by Manchester crews.

BLK was a base, crewed locally.

Alicante is also a crewed base, you've missed that one.

Titan Airways are to once again operate on behalf of LS for S16. Using a 212 seat A321 (G-POWN), which is to be added to the Titan Fleet in April.

Does anyone know where the aircraft will be based?
