Guess you didn't checked why a the number of Zante rotations had been dropped, they are shifting capacity around.

Summer 2017 Leeds-Zante was 4x weekly using Boeing 737-300. When summer 2018 went on sale Leeds-Zante was down as 3x weekly using a mix of 2x Boeing 737-300 & 1x weekly Boeing 737-800. Now its down to 2x weekly but both flights will be operated by Boeing 757-200.

I've haven't time to look up the exact capacity of these a/c, but I take it that in S17 they offered around 600 seats pw, that initially for S18 they offered nearly 500, and now around 450?

Yeap inOban,

B733 = 148
B738 = 189
B752 = 235

Leeds - Zante route
Peak summer 2017 - 4x weekly B733 = 592 seats
Initial Summer 2018 release - 2x weekly B733 & 1x weekly 738 = 485 seats
Summer 2018 on sale now - 2x weekly B752 = 470 seats

Appreciated. Nothing like having proper numbers to discuss.

Not sure on the LBA B757 operator - doesnít look like Titan as they arenít configure to this.

Looks like BHX will be getting a Smart Lynx A321 y220 seats for summer.

STN is getting 2 A321ís with Y212 config. GPOWN confirmed and another A321 from Titan (sources but to be delivered to them yet)

GVYGL and GVYGM A332ís will be MAN based.

Awaiting confirmation of EC-IDT returning next year to PMI.

Are the two A330-200's confirmed for Manchester now?
I had heard that they were still trying to source the second one.

Also, are Titan not due to aquire 2 A330's from the Ex-Air Berlin fleet?

From the Newcastle thread

Beatts: Jet2 Rumour is that there are at least 2 new routes still to be announced for next summer 2018 from each base. Could be good.
Anyone know if this is true or want to speculate what these could be?

Apparantly they have filed slots for timescales that would fit Gibraltar. Speculation elsewhere is strong on this route. The filed intention is to use 757/737 which fit as does the intended flight length. Pure speculation though and could be many more alternative destinations. But good wherever, more options

GIB would be interesting. I've mentioned before that i couldn't see much opportunity for their holiday arm on the rock. Still, they've surprised us many times before.

Similar distance would be Seville? To complete their portfolio across the south of Spain and possibly more likely for package holidays

But GIB might fit in as a shorter city break style holiday. Packages for say 3 nights?

Very true, i just wasn't aware of there being too many hotels, unless they spill over into Spain.

Gib is very constrained on hotels, although a new Holiday Inn Express is due to open shortly on Devil`s Tower Road (walking distance from the Terminal). Although Gib would be a good fit if Jet2 decided to open up holidays in the beach area between there and Portugal. That said Seville would also fit that purpose with the addition of a very attractive short break destination and virtually no competition.

STN-GIB could be a fair bet with the demise of MON in the North London Market.

So GIB looks like a good contender.

Based on the distance from LON-GIB at approx 1,750km, Similar distance/ unserved destinations potentially on the radar include
Seville / Jerez - Spain
Naples / Bari / Sardinia - Italy
Podgorica - Montenegro

Depending which way you twist it, could be a potential case for any of these.
Or we could be jumping the gun completely, with it being extra capacity on similar routes...

In terms of possible routes.

GIB could be a contender. Fill in the Monarch gap at MAN/BHX as well as new routes to possibly GLA/STN.

NAP is already served from 6 bases.

Jerez. Thomson used to offer MAN flights, possibly still offer LGW flights, not 100% sure but not sure what the big market appeal could be?

Seville? Most bases seem to be filling in a holiday market role. Seville possibly could t provide the mass volume?

Bari/Sardinia. The southern part of mainland Italy has remained quite sparse on the British tourist scene, with only a handful of routes to the regions from the likes of Bari and Brindisi, they too only recently added.

Podgorica or Tivat could be good beds, Montenegro really on the up and up.

One not mentioned.. Bourgas? Bulgaria seems to be on the up again, with more flights added to Varna and Bourgas from the regions, surely only a matter of time before Jet2 enter the market.

I would suggest that of the passengers who fly to/from GiB do no not stop there at all, with passengers crossing the border into/from Spain.Regarding three day breaks in GIB, fair enough, but three hours is often too long for myself and my partner! Cannot see Newcastle being a goer it would have to be Luton or Stansted if anything.

Bulgaria?..Hmm interesting Lax and does make more sense. Jet2 unlike Monarch do have a business game plan and that centres around their IT business. Gib just doesn`t really fit that, but Bulgaria does.Or who knows,maybe both
