Quite topical given the recent posts about EU compensation.

The outbound was heading for Lanzarote, climbed to around FL100 and stopped there. They turned around and held overhead BFS for around 45mins before diverting to LBA at FL150. Landed after another hold around 2hrs 30 mins after leaving BFS. It appears to have been fixed and currently enroute to ACE. Presumably a pressurisation problem that was fixed at LBA?

Meantime the standby aircraft was launched from ALC to pick up an on time departure of the return leg from ACE to BFS.

Not likely to be a pressurisation fault if it flew at FL150 to LBA.

Well it's one way to keep the passengers quiet

Due back into Belfast empty around 22:30 tonight, Jet2 maintenance staff meeting it.

G-JZHG was registered on 6th May, in service this morning on Leeds - Faro LS251.

That only leaves G-JZHH to make an appearance, which I imagine will be quite soon.

G-JZHH might not be in service foe a while yet if rumours are true she was in the hangar at Norwich which suffered fire damage last month.

Was that the plane that was towed out? Or the one that remained in the hanger?

Quick update for you on G-JZHH;

The aircraft, still under previous reg EI-RUF, today flew as EXS51B from Norwich down to Bournemouth, dismissing rumours of her being damaged in the fire. The aircraft taxied to the Airbourne Colours Hangar, to be repainted and re-reged before entering service

Thanks for the update Jet2 738.

That must have been the plane reported as towed out of the hanger. Hopefully it should be in service for the end of May beginning of June !

Looks like Jet2 are acquiring a wide bodied aircraft for Manchester Ops next summer 2017.

As Manchester-Palma flights on service LS831/832 both Saturday and Sunday are showing an aircarft with a 2-4-2 seating config.

Looking at the page source it's a 327 seat A330-200 this time - maybe purely a coincidence but the only operator I can find with 327 seats on the A332 is Hi Fly.

Could it be Air Tanker? I've heard they are looking to place a 2nd A330 with an airline partner?

And that post said 'for A330 read 767'. Hardly ties in with what he is saying.

The page source for the Manchester Palma flights LS831/LS832 has a count of 387 seats(not 327), which would mean that it is an A330-322 aircraft.

And if it's Hi-Fly, that would suggest that it is aircraft CS-TRI, as that is the only aircraft in their fleet currently showing a 387 seat layout.

Interesting times for Manchester next year.
