Bad hairday (delays) today for Jet2?

Is it me or is just about everything from Jet2 today not just a bit late but VERY LATE on t/o.

Must be a reason - Anyone?

Any news on G-LSAH ? From what I can see it went to Lasham 2 months ago and hasn't flown since. Given it's 30 years old, is it in for some TLC or is it going for spares?

GPOWT running late for Titan so GPOWV will be used from tomorrow for the next few weeks - 10 seats less.

GZAPX also doing a few flights this week and next from STN.

GPOWH will posn to LBA tonight to start its summer up there again.

GVYGL is now in MAN and ready for operation tomorrow.

GDRTD positioned to MAN last night and should enter service tomorrow also.

GLSAH is in for C check in Lasham
GLSAE should be finished itís C Check today in MAN and re-enter service this weekend
GLSAN has a few weeks to go yet.

Another new B738 to arrive the start of August which will allow the B738 C checks to begin again.

GDRTC should be ready to enter service in the next week or so - currently in for painting.

GDRTE and GDRTF estimated entry into service is the 1st July.

Didn't think crew shortages were a problem for LS, I've haven't heard much about them going short. Any further comment you can make to back that up Bam Thwok?

Jet2 are one of the few companies that are actually fully crewed.

They are one of the only companies that crew to 100% and donít rely on pilots to work on their days off for x amount of money unlike nearly every other airline in the UK.

They even go go as far as having up to 5 aircraft on standby at any one time that can be launched within an hour that have crews waiting at airports for them.

I woukdnt say say they are under crewed -

My flights to Berlin in December have had their flight times changed to a morning departure from LBA - suits me better, thank you Jet2! Can anyone tell me whether they are still scheduled for 300 series operation or are they now down to be a 800 series? (LS 471 and 472). Thank you

If it's true, they've been very quiet about it. Any details/ evidence of this?
Could just be a couple of charters rather than a full on base

I have not been asked to work a day off for over two years.

I understand that around 140 new pilots have joined the company for the summer season and some training is still on going.

I guess we will find out if Jet2 have enough pilots over the next 16 weeks.
Given the number of changes I and some of my colleagues have been having over the last few weeks, plus many out of base crews operating at our base, I'd say there's a fire fighting approach to crewing at the moment.
