6 or 7 733's will leave the fleet during the winter season is the plan for now.

Will that not depend on how many new B738's arrive by the end of the winter season, especially with Birmingham supposed to be having an all new fleet of 4 x B738's operating?

Basing aircraft at Palma is about getting slots on the Spanish island. To increase capacity the 330 will be going every day. Palma can not handle any more in bounds in the morning once the first wave from Northern Europe starts to arrive. No slots are available.

Agreed, the problem is a combination of a lack of slots at both Palma and Manchester. By basing an aircraft in PMI you avoid the peak times at both ends.

So NCL is remaining at 7 A/C again... Third time we've been getting 8 and it hasn't materialised

EK77. Count yourself lucky. Down the road at HQ we have up to 10 aircraft active plus 1 or 2 on standby and up to 2 in the hangar. More often than not there are insufficient stands for all these, plus Ryanair, Monarch etc (and yet they keep on sending them...)

i was under the thought that one of NCLs 733s would be a 738 next year but maybe not.

The hanger at Manchester has officially been anounced. Mention was made of the purchase of the new 737's and FURTHER USED aircraft.

What chance of getting an Airbus 330 type rating on my licence?

Aren't NCL due for some of the -300s to become -800s? It's a cheaper way of increasing capacity and I can't imagine the -800s are vastly more expensive to fly than the -300s but with the benefit of an extra 30ish punters in the back could be great for the economics of the base. Initially growing the numbers further without the need to go through the expensive of having an 8th plane.

I think there's less chance of LS shutting the base and operating from cheaper foreign bases which the other LCC at NCL is planning on doing.

Anyone know where Jet2 are going to fly their new aircraft? There could be some interesting new destinations with the lack of (understandable!) enthusiasm for Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey etc. Iceland, Cape Verde, Canada...?

I can see Cape Verde. Does anyone know if the 737 will make it there, and if it is possible to do a there and back? I'm not sure if it's doable in a day.

Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, have you been watching the news lately? Iceland is dominated by ever expanding Icelandair and WOW air. Cape Verde and Canada are too far to be operated properly with the current fleet.


The first ones are to open the new Birmingham base as well as replacing older aircraft.

There;s a couple of untapped city breaks I think they could make a go of.

Sicily and Sardinia could be expanded, as could the Greek Islands. They may even venture to La Palma? Or maybe the Azores might work from MAN?

They haven't touched Bulgaria yet, Iceland must be on it's way, and I hope they have Morocco in the back of their heads

I'd love to see Cape Verde to be honest... Fingers crossed...

And of course there are a lot of frequency upgauges that could be done, and they can't go wrong with Spanish cities, there's a multitude they could take a pop at... Maybe even Gibraltar!

I think I'm right in saying that 737 rudders are attached already painted, so looks like jet2.com rather than jet2 holidays.

First one to be delivered in September will be in Jet2 silver and red livery. The following four to be delivered in October and November will be in Jet2holidays livery.
