I think most of summer 2013 is on sale so any new routes should be on sale now or in the coming weeks. The main ones are Zante and a few new Croatian destinations. 3x relatively 'new' 737-300's and 4 737-800's should be coming next year, hearing rumours at work that an -800 will be put up at EDI to offer a bit of competition to Thomson/Thomas cooks pretty poor leisure offering to Canaries/Turkey/Greece etc. I've heard that the 757 fleet will shrink from now on with the leased ones leaving leaving a solid fleet of owned 757's. This fits with AL/AM going back to Allegiant this winter.

Fleet rationalisation an modernisation is the big thing at the moment, those 757's Looked great on paper 5 years ago and most are well depreciated and very cheap to operate despite the higher maintenance costs. Obviously long term, bringing in some 10 ish year old 737-300/-800's will see the company through the next 5-10 years and in my view is a good move. Those QC 737's are operating 6-8 sectors a day and I could well see them becoming cargo only/standby aircraft in the next year or two. This also fits with an extra passenger 737 at Belfast next year, perhaps a few city routes might be announced? Hint!

The seasonality of the English summer will see some very interesting charters this winter, a couple of 757's will be stationed in a few bizzare places, I'm sure some fantastic flying and great challenges for the flight decks!!

3x relatively 'new' 737-300's
Maybe from Brussels Airlines or Bmibaby.

Also maybe some of these aircraft will be used for the 'rumour' of the LPL base.

Only in the dreams of us welshies would Jet2 ever come to CWL, unless something can be done to attract them ! Nonetheless, we need a based low-cost carrier !

If the Jet2 management thought they would make money and Cardiff Aiport were offering cheap airport charges they might. I'm pretty certain Jet2 often discuss and look into the pros and cons of potential new bases, just as they do at new aircraft and routes.

Looks like the G-GDFL will make its way to BFS this winter to do the TFS/ACE

What's the chances of seeing jet2 back at NQY ?

Currenty nobody is on the LBA route vacated by air southwest.

Also, the MAN route which was twice daily with SZ and summer 737 with WW now just has BE four weekly.

Both of these could well work well for Jet2 ?

G-GDFD tech today

On the LS133 this morning, had reported pressurisation problems and returned to Glasgow. Understand G-LSAN pitched in from MAN to assist.

'Discovery Weekends'

It appears Jet2 are going to run a series of these trips to 3 destinations not currently served this winter from Leeds and other bases.

I bet Istanbul,Reykjavik must be amongst them?.

They are also giving away 100 trips on the jet2holidays website,think I might have to enter!.

Think it's a great idea,hopefully these will be the first of many 'new' destinations to be tried.

I have given my e mail address...It's a couple of days before you register. You have to re-visit the site.

Wherever the trips are, a visa is included in the trip..Which means not in the EU.

Wonder if any flight are from BLK?.

Probably MAN or LBA
