If a new permanent based 4th aircraft at GLA wonder what routes it would add during Winter 13 ?
PRG, is an obvious omission, plus perhaps some extra ski destinations
Budapest, Salzburg, Paris , Dusseldorf, Krakow and a return of Nice might be nice suggestions !

Good News for Glasgow.

(and without going into GLA v EDI debate, as happy to see all Scottish airports doing well)

Could this be one of Edinburgh's B733 gong to Glasgow with a newly aquired B738 heading to Edinburgh for new routes to Canaries/Greece to be announced from Edinburgh?

Or does Edinburgh still require all the B733s there to operate current routes?

No, EDI needs the 4 733QC's for the Royal Mail flights, so if they get an 738 in the near future it would be an additional frame.

It looks as if LS are planning to add at least 5 more 737-800's to the fleet for S13??.

Based on the current schedule for mid July 2013 and the seat plans available on LS's website it looks as if the following aircraft will be deployed at each based for S13

BFS - 2 x 733's
BLK - 2 x 733's
EDI - 4 x 733's
EMA - 2 x 733's, 1 x 738 & 1 x 757
GLA - 1 x 733, 2 x 738's & 1 x 757
LBA - 8 x 733's, 1 x 738 & 4 x 757's
MAN - 3 x 733's, 5 x 738's & 3 x 757's
NCL - 4 733's & 2 x 757's

Does anyone know if EDI is likely to get any new routes for S13?.

I love 757's but jet2's look like they need scrapping, they're not a patch on monarch's or thomson's.

I don't usually bite on posts like that but on what do you base this assumption? I've been on a few Jet2 757s and they have all been great inside, maybe not the newest examples but most customers won't know or care about that.

What's that based on??!! The paintwork??!!

Jet2's 757 fleet age is varied with some models built in the mid to late 90's. All Jet2 aircraft have recently had new interiors fitted over the last few years. I wasn't overly keen at first but passengers often comment that they find them more comfortable and roomy than some of jet2's competitors.

Have a look at the age of Monarch's remaining 757's. Perhaps you're basing your assumption on engineering? Jet2 757's are not quite at the 'need scrapping' stage as you put it. It's sad to say that the performance of the 757 hasn't nearly been matched by any new 737 or A320 variant.

It's true that the summer season plus the age of the avionics of the aircraft can take its toll but I've seen just as many Thomas Cook or Thomson 757's with some tech issues this summer.

I'm not having a pop at you, I just find your comments a little odd?!

jet2 engineers are forever working on them and they do get a lot more 757 tech delays than monarch do with theirs. Jet2 will probably phase them out in the next couple of years i would think.

Scandic do you think it might be due to Jet2.com operating a much larger B757 fleet than Monarch ? give you a clue, google each airlines fleet

I know exactly what j2 have but i just think that everyone else's 757's are in much better condition than theirs.

I agree with walterthesofty, there's not many airlines that can beat monarch engineering set up.
