Didnt take long for Jet2 to start messing with their new toy. G-JZHJ has had chrome leading edges fitted around the engine intakes instead of the dullish grey ones fitted in the factory.

Its also wearing friendly low fares titles on the fuselage and named Jet2Ibiza

They are not chrome and not new, other than the ones delivered with the a/c.
Airlines sometimes polish the engine intakes and the leading edges of the wings.

G-LSAG

I see G-LSAG is once again broken having diverted back to Manchester today whilst operating LS891 to ACE, the second time in a week (the same happened on Sunday and it hadn't flown since) and the fourth time in a month (before Sunday it hadn't flown for a week after it's previous return).

I know these Chinese 21Bs are rough anyway but is it time to call it a day with AG? it must be costing them a fortune!

It is over 28 years old now, in fairness most 757's that age are now Freight!

Not true.

AG had flown several times after its hic-cups a couple of weeks ago, and I believe that it had flown post its return to base earlier this week prior to today's return.

The issues this week are totally unrelated to the ones a couple of weeks ago.

There are plenty of aeroplanes knocking around of a similar age, these aeroplanes are treated with plenty of TLC and have a good few years left yet. Nobody blinks an aye at BA's B747's flying around that are of a similar vintage.

You're quite right Johnny, however in this online age the local media have picked up on all this, including the fact that this is 4 times in a month for 'AG. It wouldn't be a huge surprise if they get pax refusing to travel on it at some point when it returns to service, complete with sad-eyed photos in the Manchester Evening News about their ruined holiday. It may be that Jet2 decide the reputation cost of keeping it on outweighs the cost of retiring it from the fleet.

Aircraft and any other machine for that matter are only as good as the care they receive , Perhaps sorting the issues might be more sensible


Jet2 dont want a repeat of the door debacle a few years back thats for sure

According to Plane Finder it operated LBA/TFS/LBA yesterday, the inbound looks like it went a little late. Perhaps steps or baggage belt struck the aeroplane and an inspection might have been required. It flew back though, so I can only assume it wasn't significant.

Very good news. This will send out a powerful message to the drunks and idiots who think they are the only people that matter on a flight.
Well done Jet2 and I hope this becomes standard practice for other airlines.
