Looking forward to the new 737-800's coming this winter, should do good for their expansion at MAN but i have heard only one of the new 3 will be based at MAN. Dont know wheather they will have normal Jet2 titles or Jet2Holidays titles.

Trying to get my head around the situation with the 737-800s.

How many do they have in service at the moment and where are they based? My understing is two are heading north to Glasgow with the other(s) heading to Manchester.

Glasgow has somewhat of a limited winter flying programme this winter and was therefore wondering if they had already based an aircraft there?

The NG's will be a great addition to the fleet.

Cheers..

MKY is correct, 2 in service at the moment, both at MAN. MAN will have 3 based units next year with GLA having 1 or 2. Depending how many join, plans for 2/3 at the moment.

Jet2

Booked a holiday for next June, destination Malaga from Leeds Bradford and seat plan shows a lot of 3-2 with a seat on its own behind each 2 . What does all that mean or am I losing the plot. Not sure it is B737 or 757

I hope that's not true that the CAA have grounded the aircraft..

I guess it makes more sense for Jet2 to have there Manchester based 757 aircraft repaired/fixed by Monarch engineering instead parking it up at Leeds.

There is no room at Multiflight for another 757 sized aircraft at the moment. This is due to G-LSAE still be repaired by Boeing, After her little incident last month with the Wheelchair lifter.

Well that is funny jonathan78, because they were fixing it originally, but l bow to you greater knowledge that Jet2 engineers have taken over.
The original defect found by the CAA was sorted by the MAEL AOG team, they also found some damage while rigging the L2 door.
MAEL's structures engineers then approached Boeing, as repair was not covered by a standard SRM repair.
So maybe the Jet2 engineers are carrying out the Boeing repair.

Beg to differ, according to a member of our aviation group who works for jet 2 the damage was so bad jet 2 did not have the capability to repair it where as monach have boeing approval for this type of work

Appears so, something to with monarch having special boeing approval for complex repairs where as jet 2 dont, and because the CAA found the damage and grounded to plane i suppose jet 2 have got to get it done correctly

MAEL are the specialist in this type of work and makes sense for them to do it, I guess Jet2 acquired the aircraft in this state, but it should have been picked up because some one will have to pay to put it right, is it an owned airframe, the other concern is they will be now on the CAA radar

G-LSAA is the aircraft that's in the Monarch hanger at Manchester while G-LSAE is at Multiflight at Leeds reciving treatment from Boeing.

Also it looks as though G-LSAK which is on lease to RAK Airways until May next year has gone tech somewhere. As Manchester based G-LSAC positioned out last night and has been covering its work today.
