They've already got the ex-Monarch hangar which can accommodate 3 aircraft. Why need a second one?
At the rate they're growing, they may need it in the not too distant future.

Also it could potentially keep the competition from expanding too. They may want to base lots of frames there, and a maintenance hanger would work well for them...not if Jet2 snap it up first

BHX

With yesterdays announcement of even more expansion at BHX this summer is this linked to Busters post above on the 26th?

The 9th aircraft starts with West Midlands school holidays which sometimes can indicate a short-term lease to cover the peak period but in this instance is this aircraft actually based at BHX (or elsewhere) all summer as an operational spare but pressed into regular service on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday?

I have checked the seat-map for one of the new flights and it is standard 189.

Ex-Transaero B737-800 positioned Teruel-QLA this afternoon, presumably destined for Jet2.

Does anyone on here know the current fleet exit plan for the 733 - what and when?? Assume it won't be this side of the summer now?

Can anyone tell me if Boeing 737 800s will operate Leeds - Berlin at all soon. Also I have noticed that the flights in both directions always seem to fly at 29,000 feet flight level. Is that a regular occurrence? If so why?

LBA-SXF is down as a 733 all year. The 733 has a lower cruise altitude than a 738 and due to the short distance 29,000 is the optimum altitude for that aircraft on that route so thats why you will see FL290 more often than not.

The question was why it was the same level in both directions! If it is, I’ve flown it a few times and cannot remember if it is the case, I suspect it is just an exception to the semicircular rule which occurs here and there.

Why wouldnt it fly at FL290 in both directions ? There isnt much need to go higher into more crowded airspace for such a short flight.

He's not pointing out that it is relatively low, he is pointing out that this is a exception to the Semi-Circular Rule.

Imagine two aeroplanes flying in opposite directions at the same level along the same airway. Thatís why, generally, they wouldnít.

Nah, I’m not having that. I don’t know the reason that it was at FL290, but that most definitely would not be the most optimum level to cruise at in a B733 for a flight of that distance. We regularly used to operate theANS to LBA at FL360.

Not wishing to drag this out, but from the data I can see from the last few weeks, LS471 LBA-SXF is flown at FL290, but the return LS472 SXF-LBA is flown at either FL300 or FL320. I can find no record of the flight being flown at FL290 in both directions.

G-CELE/O/Y G-GDFG/L/M have all operated LBA-SXF at FL290 the last many weeks

Return leg is usually at FL300

But whatever it is FL290 seems to be the preferred altitude for that sector at least.

Good question. Wonder if they are still pondering what their costs abroad might be Post-Brexit? I also wonder if J2 will look at expanding non-EU destinations like Turkey in case of price hikes within EU for landing fees, fuel, hotel costs, ancilliares like Transfers etc? As a "retired" accounting professional, such thoughts are mind boggling.
Me? Fingers crossed that FUE remains the value for money destination in The Canaries.
