Numbers seem somewhat okay (AUG is a peak month may I add), however yields are muck, hence the reason why there's a loss of a SWF rotation.

Granted their method of operation was never going to be a goldmine.

Look, these machines are fitted with pretty awesome defensive systems. They're better protected than any civilian aircraft, perhaps with the exception of some Israeli airframes. They're designed to fly into places where they're not welcome. Some spotters talking excitedly about them doesn't pose a risk.
Indeed, its hardly secret hush hush if they are sitting out on the airfield wer every1 can see them

Assuming Only 1 rotation per day, on 2 a/c = 14 rotations (-11 listed) that leaves 3 slots for others. Could they bring some Ski flights in? or a new route perhaps?

During the winter Jet2 use their a/c quite lightly. At EDI the number used each day ranges from 0 on a Wednesday to 4 yesterday.

But surely with the new planes entering the fleet, they'll need to get some decent use out of them? no point spending mills on new planes to have them sat on the ground.

Back when they only had old 733's, they could afford to leave them, as the costs would have already been paid for, which made sense. Now they need to pay the new 738's off, and the only way you'll do that is extra flying.

Certainly the 738's are used most days, since they operate the flights to the canaries and Madeira. I'm sure other posters know which are new and which s/h.

Jet2 Winter 2018/19

Looks like Salzburg is continuing for W18/19 on the B733

So looks like for W18/19 there will be two B738s and one B733 based.

Verona still not bookable.

Maybe see a new ski route or something as all the B733 does is Salzburgon a Saturday!
