The connection to a Leeds postcode was not intentional, but no doubt a handy marketing ploy for a business putting down new routes in the north..

Smart company!
Afraid remember the Bournemouth days from when went to school there

G-DRT has been the sequence for the second hand B738s (since G-JZHH) but we have reached G-DRTZ now so it will be interesting to see what comes next 😉
Thanks. I had wondered about the GDFs. NOTICED GDFC parked up at TFS yesterday as the 'spare'. I believe she had covered a Faro relief flight and saw her returning on Friday night.

I noticed a TUI bird next to her with engine covers. Assumed this was their "spare" but then, on taxi saw it was a MAX.

Number of flights have left TFS tonight and have headed to FAO AGP and ALC im guessing this is to free up TFS without enough hours to reach their final destination ?

The next A321 has rolled out of the paint hangar at Ostrava looking a bit white.

Where is this information coming from? It's very late in the day for another A330 from Hi Fly considering, more then likely, all the numbers for Crew and Training crew on the different aircraft has already been established and is underway.

A330 from Hi Fly next year maybe. This year no. And Jet2 are not a late mover.

Several pages back on this forum it was mentioned, as it was originally the intention to have 2 A321's from Hi Fly (Can't remember the date or post number).

This definitely won’t happen now. The program has been signed off now and if anything Jet2 will now be very cautious with the Coronavirus situation. This may require for flights / holidays to be adjusted. Particularly if the situation doesn’t improve in northern Italy
