A330 hours are currently for EOMA 71122 FH & 12091 FC and SMAN 71716 FH & 12463 FC.
Same owner but no idea of the next operator, the owners might not have a new operator for them at the moment.

Jet2 pleeeaaassseeeeee for the A330's

But what routes do the A321's operate from LBA if it's "mostly" A320's? I'd assume shorter routes if runway length is an issue

The LBA operation is A320. Summer has 2 based and this goes to 1 in the winter.

The Monarch aircraft move around quite a lot so there are no fixed home bases for any of the aircraft. In fact the only place I would say is more consistent for aircraft is LBA where the two A320s rarely change (in terms of registration) and a couple of the A321 sharklets always seem to be based at MAN.

For the rest they are always being swapped around

That's a lot of a/c based at BHX, I didn't realise they had that many there. Is that an increase on last year?

It's not an increase- it might be a decrease as the list above has 8 aircraft- there have been 9 in the past.

I have noticed at LTN at least that the reduction from 5 to 4 aircraft has not really amounted to a total loss of one aircraft as more productivity appears to be being achieved from the 4 that are based.

On a Saturday for example the morning ALC (last year) has been dropped from a.m. to p.m. and DLM has been dropped back from p.m. to an evening departure so the only casualty appears to be evening often summer peak only CFU.

Turnround times are also down to 45 minutes at times which was rare in the past - and yet punctuality seems better.

Sparkie320.

As of yesterday;

GOZBI/BL are in the MAEL hangar at BHX and G-OZBF was outside the hangar.

G-SMAN A330 has just gone in the hangar as well and A332 G-EOMA remains on the remote stands at BHX .

Anyone know what sort of cycles we are talking with the 330s? They're some of the earliest off the production line IIRC.

@junglejim

Thanks, hadn't seen that

@Mr Spotty

Thanks, all that was needed was a simple post like Jim's directing me to the info. Not all of us check back through 19 days worth of posts.

Nevertheless, thanks for the cycle info.

My post would have been the same as @junglejim if you had to go back pages, but it was on the same page.

I would imagine that someone knows where it is.

Andrew Swafield on the Today programme this morning saying they had cut the winter loss from 100 million to 60 million last winter- what can we take from this? Good news?

I think a 40% reduction in losses over the winter has to be seen as something positive!

Depends what the underlying sales and yield trend was. We know that they have saved a packet by being completely unhedged as part of the buyout deal.

I believe the (lack of) hedging gain was around 10m so overall good news and a step in the right direction.

I would still be cautious going forward, the summer program is much lower than previous and the fixed cost overheads of running the airline are shared amongst fewer airframes, by the end of this year most competitors will have unwound their hedge positions, so a one off and well deserved.

From what i hear from current employee's still some rather generous benefits and allowances around at ZB, the next 12 months will give an idea whether the business has a future.
