I understand, from another forum, that it's gone to have its "pickle forks" seen to.

Ref the 330's of Tcook. I'd heard j2 have looked at them. Talk of £2.5m each, and spares/tooling aquired from the liquidators? But nothing concrete beyind rumours right now.

At the rught price they could fit in well with j2's operation..

Two of the TC A330s are worldwide fleet leaders on hours flown and were mid way through the Airbus life extension programme in which they were the first aircraft to be enrolled. Although they have plenty of life left yet, it would be a brave new operator getting into the A330 for the first time to take these particular aircraft on, unless you knew exactly what you were doing and had the engineering specialist expertise to do it. Thatís not to say Jet2 couldnít or donít, but it is sensible not to rush into such things.

Jet2 B737-800 (G-DRTM) flew from LBA to BOH this afternoon (EXS045D).

Presumably to get the Jet2 Holidays livery finished prior to entering service.

I've heard the ex-TCX A330s at EGCC are destined to be parted out as there hasn't been sufficient interest in them. Likewise for another aircraft that was mid-way through major checks when TCX went pop - supposedly too expensive to get the checks re-done

This is the spotter in me asking, but will the EXS A321ís rotate through MAN and BHX, or will the same 3 be at BHX all summer and the same 4 at MAN

Given there is a hangar at MAN equipped to maintain the Airbus, I suspect there may be the occasional down route tail swap.

Thanks. I hadn't heard of Channel Express, so it was an interesting read on wikipedia to see where Jet2 all started.
I guess it is also where the EXS callsign originates from?

I have some queries regarding airport and onboard elements of Jet2 service ahead of our first LS flights coming up soon. Is here a good place to ask, or is there a better forum? I am a member on flyer talk, but there doesn't seem to be an active Jet2 space there.

If they were going to announce new bases would they do it then or wait till later on in the year?

Yes Channel Express and Bournemouth are the spiritual fore-bearers of Jet2 today.
But the Dart Group moved the HQ to Leeds.
I have always been surprised they have not opened a Bournemouth base, but they are the darlings of the Midlands, the North and Scotland, with Stansted new for them last year and doing very well it seems.

They have a good reputation for flights and holidays, very family and service focused.

If you have on board product and service questions then why not post on the SLF thread on Misc forums here on PPRuNe....

I think youíll find that Stansted has been a Jet2 base since 2017.

Interesting to see how old some of the recently purchased 738s are and number of hours flown. A practice which seemed to work well with the 733s.

Seems a lot better than buying new Aircraft, I dread to think what would be happening, if we had ordered the MAX from Boeing

Based on when BHX and STN were announced, the full programme had been put on sale. After a while, BHX and STN were then announced.

Even so, i wouldn't expect to see any new base this year. It's been well documented that Jet2 want to focus on their key bases of MAN, BHX and STN, especially with all the extra slots they bought from the TCX collapse
