Rather ironic to see the latest acquisition G-DRTL positioning BOH-MAN this afternoon, freshly painted, but for what? Like many other airlines, Jet2 made careful preparations for the summer season, investing in additions to the fleet, but none of us knew how the coronavirus would hit. Profoundly sorry for this airline (and others) and the loyal staff.

Not ideal, definitely. But LS will be fine and will come out stronger on the other side.

Sorry for what ??

Yes, of course, VERY tough months ahead.....but be assured......this “airline” and its “loyal staff” will be poised to react very quickly when Europe opens up again.

Bloody Doom Merchant !

Perhaps sorry for the staff who will have to take unpaid leave for significant time...?

Of course, positivity is needed but this is a real situation and people (not just airline ops) will be affected.

Jet2 are the only airline not to mention staff cuts yet which is odd.

Calm down friend. Think of those affected and try and show a little sympathy. Yes, we hope for better things but we are fools if we don't look at the reality of the situation now.

Think they are very busy at the moment been what they are known for when it goes wrong - moving the bloody earth to get the loyal customers back to the UK . And who's to say they will? it is inventible but until its confirmed lets leave them to what they seem to be getting A-LOT of positive comments about. Which will only make people book with them for the future.

Sadly I don't think so, i'm on layoff like many of us.
Jet2 have stretched themselves this year, introducing the Airbus this year has been a massive gamble, it may not have been the correct decision, but of course hindsight is always right.
But you say they will be propped up by the Dart group, well lets hope so, but what if this goes on for several months, Europe is in lockdown, there are going to be no flight for several months. Jet 2 cannot afford to pay staff forever. They have a lot of staff, just look at any check in, at least 10 or so compared to minimal at Ryanair/ Easyjet/ Tui. yes Jet2 give great customer service, but they are going to as ruthless to their staff as the other airlines or they wont make it.
This virus wont go for a while, it just starting,
I friends there and hope they make it, but its going to be a long hard ride

Meanwhile - A321 training goes on

Been interesting watching, via FR24, the recent flights of the newly acquired ex-Condor/TC liveried A321 G-HLYF.
Doing the rounds of PIK, NCL, BFS and MAN on what must be type training. Life goes on.
Q - are these flights for uprating 737 crew to A321 or to check ride any newly hired A321 flight crew, for example ex TCX?

A- The latter.

Looks like Jet2 are flying home stranded pax who are customers of other airlines.
Expensive, but in the long run this is fantastic as it’s only going to build that already loyal customer base.

Any examples/source for this?

See the update from Steve Heapy.

“putting on extra aircraft to fly customers home, some of who may not have been offered flights home by their own airline”.

Whilst Jet2 have given remarkably good service, certainly in comparison with Ryanair, I doubt that this has been at no cost to the consumer/government.

The government said they wouldn’t be funding any kind of repatriation

Given that a large proportion of Jet2 customers are on package holidays, it is the responsibility of Jet2 to get people back to the UK.

Indeed, but the point I was making was that they are offering flights home to others who have been left stranded by their own airlines.

It is but I think the point is that they have also been repatriating non-Jet2 passengers

Yes, surely it good business to make sure every seat is sold? I’d be surprised if those non-Jet2 passengers had a free ride.
