My closest is the "delight" of NCL. However, prices and all, it was just last week I returned through LBA with Jet2. The Wednesday morning flight down to ALC and back the following week. Other than a Go Around with the weather on return (to which I must say the crew handled perfectly), as soon as the plane was on the blocks the stairs were there, straight in and up the escalator, and through the border in no more than 5mins. Reclaim certainly less than 10. It really must depend on the handlers - in my case I must say the same, self-handling was spot on.

Leeds' facilities really aren't that bad - compact yes, but grim not at all. The terminal was clean, plenty of windows on the way through and down to the gates. Must have been some time since you were last through

I have to agree with Jet2 738 - I use EDI or GLA mostly but LBA from time to time and always find it quite agreeable, clean and the facilities okay, certainly not the grimmest airport I have used, that must be some European airport. UK airports on the whole are fine, including LBA.

Quite a few of the 737-800s will be Brand new and much nicer to fly in, that's for sure.

GJZHF

I see that GJZHF is in service today flying on LS251/LS252 from Leeds to Faro, it's first commercial flight for Jet2. Anyone know which livery this aircraft carries?

Any updates on when the other 3 new B737-800's will be in service?

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays Go BIG in Belfast

As expected, Jet2 and Jet2holidays have announced their 'Biggest ever flights and holidays programme' for Summer 2017.

Belfast routes are set to increase by a 10% growth year on year, with a new destination, Girona. The new flights will operate twice weekly - a total of 82 weekly flights between the two cities. Increases are also on LPA and REU, with a total 280,000 seats available.

The announcement comes alongside the extensions of the flying programme for 2017, meaning routes to FAO, PMI and IBZ with be flown earlier than previous years. (Maybe something to do with filling up the new a/c and sending them out to earn their keep)

At this time, only BFS S17 has been released for both Jet2 and Jet2holidays, with the rest of the UK to follow shortly

G-IFIT spotted at CWL this morning. Any significance ? Also seem to use St Athan for maintenance a lot more these days.

Probably the same as when G-IFIT was spotted at Southend a couple of months ago

A Stansted base what to go head to head with Ryanair, I don't think so as we all know who will win!

And you know as well as everyone else that the rumour of an A330 was quashed a few months ago when Jet2 made an announcement which mentioned that they will not be receiving one, as plans to charter an AirAsia 330 was scrapped.

So no AirTanker A330 for Jet2 either, are you sure? They wouldn't suffer the regulatory problems AirAsia did.

When is the remainder of Jet2's Summer 2017 schedule to be released. I remain quite intrigued with these CWL rumours amongst others regarding the airline moving further south ...

To be honest, I personally have no idea.

It was something that was rumoured elsewhere, where an article to Jet2 crew recruitment for 3 new airports including BHX was posted. I can't find the link now, and I know that PPRuNe doesn't like external links anyway ...

I find it hard to believe that they would commence recruitment prior to any announcement. And a new base would be quite a big announcement.

That's my issue exactly, hence the reason i'd like to know where it came from in the first place. Putting two and two together it may actually make some sort of sense ...
