If they want to sink it at the end of the runway then maybe yes

Age is irrelevent, it's the idea that counts.

May be wishful thinking, getting an A330 in, but i could see the 752's working for a time. I can't see any 733's lasting more than a few years.

The 738 Short field might be worth exploring. I'm sure there's a couple more destinations on their radar that could utilise it on. The return of CMF maybe?

Other than somebody pointing out a GIB size gap in a LS schedule, is there anything to substantive to support the idea of Jet2 flying to Gibraltar?

Rog, I'm so sorry that went over your head, I'll be sure to have more consideration next time.

The 733's should be a safe bet for about the next 3-5 years, and the 757's possibly the next 5-10

I'd be disappointed if LS didn't at least consider the 738-SFP as an option out of GIB for the future. The aircraft won't be brimmed with fuel and if needs be they could block 20/30 seats on the return. It would still carry more than a 733.

The new BA GIB to Gatwick flights are to be operated by Titan from end of May to end of September on an A320

BA will be operating the flights on some days and Titan on their behalf on some others.

Weather

Very unusual and constantly unseasonable weather here. Yet another day of 60Kt gusting westerlies.

Tunnel is progressing but fills with water every time there is (another) storm. Like..... today!

Will the Titan flights have BA cabin crew or their own? Jet2 often lease Titan aircraft in the Summer but always with their own cabin crew. Customers like that.

British Airways neither have enough aircraft to cover for their increased flying ex LGW let alone spare or enough cabin crew to cover them hence why they are using aircraft from the likes of Titan who will be using their own crews to cover the British Airways flights.

I've travelled with Titan on a B757 operating on behalf BA and in their equivalent of Club Class and I was very surprised by how good the cabin crew were, I couldn't tell the difference and the crew were excellent with the full BA club menu on offer, I was sat in seat 1A and I was first to board and I was even invited to the cockpit before departure after politely asking which I thought was a nice gesture but the pilot obviously knew I was an aviation enthusiast as we discussed the B757.

Strong rumours on the Luton thread that EasyJet will announce a new route to Luton tomorrow.

It's about time that BHX was re-instated since the demise of Monarch, who might take it on?

The problem was that the loads were reasonable but the yield was not hence the reluctance to restart the service. Also a lot of people down here in Spain still prefer to fly from Malaga knowing how fickle the Gib weather can be. Twice weekly for the Luton service.

Thanks rog747, I guess with that handle we won't be seeing you in Gib anytime soon!

First up, the approach radar is back up and running after being taken out of commission due to damage from the winter storms.
Second, The tunnel is almost complete which means that all vehicles will be underground. Eventually there might be a bus for foot passengers but for now we can still walk across - such good sport.

Would that explain why Planes have been flying over the Straight of Gibraltar rather than over Malaga on takeoff Recently?

EasyJet flights for summer went on sale today. LGW will be double daily except Saturdays and BRS will stay at 3pw. MAN unfortunately also remains 3pw so it looks like EasyJet are not willing to increase the frequency as much as Monarch did.

LTN is unbookable after 22nd June, maybe a route increase planned?
