I'm not sure what actually happened but I read on this forum that something didn't go down well last summer.

Perhaps you should ask what was right with privilige ... it did us no favours whatsoever

Thank you for that information [email protected] Now that I have to drag my ancient bones to Alicante in order to fly to Edinburgh I fear that I shall transfer my allegiance to the Irishman's outfit.

No, don't do that.

I'm going to have to use ALC too to get to the holiday home, it's 15 mins from Murcia. Unfortunately it's all about these days.

Hi all
Managed to get some time off due to heavy maintenance and booked on to jet2 GLA - ACE 13/3/16. Just wondering if its a 738, what the interiors are like, seat pitch, seats non recliners??? etc. Usually flown TCX past 5 years but J2 much cheaper this year

Most flights from GLA are B737-800. Seats don't recline , seat pitch is generous (not sure of the exact pitch) due to the clever seat design. The interiors of all the aircraft are very new, they have been refitted and had larger overhead lockers fitted to help with room in the cabin.

Enjoy your trip.

Jet2 crew bases

Skipness,


Should Alicante not be on that list? They do tend to have a 733 stationed there, I understood that some crew were based there also?


The backup ac has been able to position to airports around the network quickly and hence keep the operation running smoothly. I've seen examples of where the plane was deployed to Pisa and Tenerife before from there for rescue missions. Potentially has upsides in terms of minimising costs from extensive delays while keeping things on track..

Yes! There are 2 aircraft based at ALC. 1 flying and another 1 as back up. Crew based, too.

Great news about the non reclining seats and seat pitch, fed up having my knees round my chin, can't wait to get time off and let someone else do the driving

Jet2 will now be acquiring 4 second hand 737-800's instead of three this winter, although the Ex. SunExpress aircraft which was due will now be an Ex. Transaero Aircraft (Source: jethro's UK and Ireland Airline Fleet Listings).

How has the recruitment been over the winter? There were lots of suggestions about turn over and no crew left.Fact fiction or usual moaning pilots 😠

Inaugural Edinburgh Airport Flights

The first flight of the Edinburgh Airport expansion in 2016 left on Friday bound for Tenerife. Today, the second flight bound for Lanzarote departed, and is well on its way. The one 738 based there is set to have a very busy season indeed, alongside what is currently 3 733QC and 1 733WL

Early Fleet Shortages?

Various non-LS aircraft have been operating under the channex callsign recently. Does anyone know why we have;

A Germania A321 operating LS218
A Thomson 738 operating LS632

Scary if we're having fleet shortages this early in the season

Shortage of aircraft, or shortage of crew?

Alot of guys have left recently, with probably more to follow so I suspect the latter, and this is a quiet time of the year...

Can't see crewing shortage as being the reason to be honest.

Most crew have a very quiet roster at the minute. For what it's worth my guess is aircraft still being in maintenance.

Will Jet 2 increase its North Atlantic programme or is it just a 'one - off' Christmas shopping special to EWR?

cheers

Anyone know why Jet2 are pulling its winter routes from LBA, EDI, EMA, MAN & NCL to Chambery as from April?

Looks like LBA, EMA and EDI are all getting replacement flights to Grenoble next winter 2016/17 season, whilst they already serve Grenoble from MAN
