Would be good to see these guys in the south!

I think jet2 have ambitions other than the North of England.

Philip Meeson is ambitions, another MOL, but without a pram to throw toys from.

They are good to fly with also, I reckon 10 years down the line they will be as far as Exeter and maybe SEN.

I would imagine a LPL base would be bad news for BLK, and that would be start of BLK base being run down, yes BLK has one or two new routes for next year , but it's at expense of other routes, either by routes going completely or reduced frequency on others, plus BLK gets very little for the winter, there's no real expansion going on as every other base has had. Can see LPL taking routes that BLK would/may have got had it not got such tight opening times. On other hand can't see Ryanair or easyjet being too happy at LPL , having someone else in on their patch, can see FR retaliating at one LS's strongholds .

I can't see Jet2 moving into Liverpool at all..I may be wrong, but it will not be Liverpool nor the niche market Blackpool that will suffer.

I know quite a few passengers from Liverpool use MAN (No idea why)..If jet2 move into Liverpool, then JET2 at MAN could suffer.

There is a big gap called the Mersey between Liverpool and Blackpool.

Liverpool although a great airport have seen losses in frequency of late et al..Why would Jet2 go there, at the moment?. Makes no sense.

if Jet2 muscle in on routes like they did with Monarch (AGP} at BLK, Liverpool may find trouble with EZY and maybe FR gone.

Why did FR move into MAN as its clearly affecting there own operation at LPL and FR said they want to wipe out Jet2 and Thomas Cook from MAN.

By Jet 2 going to Liverpool they will have operations at LBA, BLK, MAN and LPL a nice little circle around north England yes there MAN base may be affected but is that not happening now with recent new routes being added from BLK and LBA?

Then it could only be to pi*s off FR at LPL and FR did to them at MAN.

Jet 2 could bring a lot of Eastren Europe routes to LPL but FR can't however EZY could and do to an extent.

I can't see FR wiping out Jet2, paying close attention to Jet2's marketing of late we see the prevalance of Jet2 holidays. They are quite diversified model, going after package holidays, niche low frequency markets and the package holiday market had quite a brochure. Go beyond that and they have substantial night freight flying program. Are there opportunities for LS at LPL as far as freight.?

Well FR threw their toys out of the pram at MAN,and FR mover deeper into MAN and the expence of a 3rd based a/c at BLK...

I would not want to see MOL and Meeson at an airport like Liverpool, They are fine with EZY and FR at the moment.

That sums LS up....They have a niche markets at BLK, which are doing fine load factor wise....Jet2 holidays at Liverpool, MOL would love that.

I fly with Jet2, and there is always a special welcome and thank you for pax that have booked with Jet2 Holidays.
I flew from Loverpool to Fuerteventura at Easter, Outbound with EZY and inbound with FR..Quite a good experience with both. Not sure I like the all male cabin crew that FR had that flight.

I do think there's room for Jet2 in Liverpool. There are quite some routes that Jet2 operate from other bases that could operate from Liverpool and that EZY and FR don't fly to. I can perfectly see a 737-800 being based at LPL operating routes like Dalaman, Paphos, Larnaca, Rome, Budapest and Prague. And I think there's enough market in the area to not affect Jet2's own flights from Manchester.

Not really,
BLK have lost jersey which was bizarre considering that Menorca and Ibiza made way for to accommodate that.

Ibiza is back and Jersey has gone, not surprised...BLK have also gained Lanzarote and Dalaman, I can't see Jet2 saturating with having Dalaman a route from BLK, Liverpool and MAN..

Also the route that has had its frequency cut at BLK is Belfast, which is only a filler route at best.
If and it's only an if, LA fly Pathos,Larnica,Rome, Budapest and Prague - That won't make a scrap of difference to BLK...

Also just one more route from Jet2 at BLK, say Corfu or Sardina for instance 2014, that would mean a3rd based a/c at BLK if my sums are right.

BLK is a goldmine to Jet2, so I doubt Liverpool would be a threat, not sure it will happen though.

According to flight radar, appears to be two Jet 757s in an emergency situation at the same time. LSAN & LSAH.(TFS-LBA). Isn't LSAN the "new " one ?
Hopefully only minor snags.
LSAN appears to have landed safely at Newcastle. Looks like AH diverted back to TFS shortly after take off.

Does anyone know the reason for their return. To get to Essen and come all the way back, it can't have been too serious. The aircraft looked OK when it passed my window on the return.

CELH is 26 years old. You would expect it to go wrong sometimes.

G-CELH returned to LBA this morning due to A crew member becoming sick so they turned back to pick up a replacement crew member rather than carry on and not be able to bring a full load of passengers back from Dubrovnik this afternoon.
