Jet2 captures the North Bristol market at Birmingham. Possible a base at BRS could be good, but would see Birmingham affected.

BOH would be ideal - It competes with LGW and LHR where Jet2 have absolutely no plans and where most of the leakage occurs. It compliments STN and offers SOU catchment a close enough alternative

GPOWD operates every week from STN for LS. This is always planned.

It sure does from Worcester / Gloucster area anyway.
Its quicker to get to EMA from there than BRS - lousy road infrastructure.
So normally I go BHX - FUE or EMA - FUE if their flight timings are OK. Love the 11am departure ex-EMA.

An empty BOH could well be a South/South West answer, just curious how well Jet2 utilise a base aircraft - know very little about them tbf - I see see the FR based plane in summer well used off v early and ping ponging back late 11pm - so is also part of the appeal of BOH complementing Stansted not just the parking space but also that the schedule (ATC given) is pretty much empty?

Jet2 generally operate 2 rotations per day, occasionally 3 rotations if the day involves short(ish) flights.

You might be right about BRS's attitude towards a significant new presence such as Jet2. The previous BRS CEO said publicly that the airport's preferred choice is to grow using existing airline partners in the main. This still seems to be the strategy as the airport continues its major public consultation on its new master plan and the way forward over the next 30 years.

The airport has grown from 6.3 mppa in 2014 to a likely 8.6 mppa in 2018 using its existing airline partners, the main ones you identify. The airport's projections are 10 mppa by 2021 and 12 mppa by 2025*. Whether this can be achieved by concentrating mainly on current BRS airlines remains to be seen.

* currently the airport is restricted to 10 mppa by its planning consents but an application will be made to the local authority to have this limit raised.

Rescue flight (lol) G-LSAE (757) flew MAN - BOD late Friday afternoon, then BOD - LBA getting everyone home before 10pm.
G-POWH left Bordeaux bright and early on Sunday morning 12/8 for STN not above 10k. Obviously now at the Menders.
Great recovery by Jet2.
POWH currently on Air Test over Norfolk and North Sea at 36k. (@21.00)

At BRS TUI have grown from 2 757's to 2x 757's, 2 737's and 1 787 (part week). TCX have grown to 3x A321
At CWL TUI currently have 2x 737's which will increase to 3x 737's Summer 2019. TCX have 1x A320
At EXT TUI have 1x 737

I have no doubt that some from the Southwest/South Wales use BHX and probably MAN and LGW if the price is right, but if Jet2 really wanted to take on the competition in the region a BRS or CWL base would be necessary. I can't imagine they are attracting that many people from the Southwest which would affect the BHX base too much. BOH isn't really ideally placed to serve the whole of the Southwest & South Wales.
BRS is currently suffering from infrastructure issues (Stands/Gate availability) which could limit how many aircraft a new Airline could base but is growing at a rapid pace (6m pax in 2014 to nearly 8.5m currently, 15 based aircraft for EZY with talks of continued growth from them (Which TUI and Thomas Cook use for an increasing number of packages on). CWL will have a smaller share of the market but has the space to accommodate and is crying out for a new Airline that can offer both package holiday destinations and city breaks.

caaardiff - fully agree. I think Jet2 could do with a SW base (CWL for sure or BRS if they can get a deal) and a BOH base the latter which would compliment their STN operation well as LGW is full, LHR is not a short-term option and LTN is too close to STN. BOH/SOU have a larger population than BRS when combined and could be a good base from which to draw upon central SE UK. If the fare is good enough people drive from at least 2.5hrs distance or more.

I think BOD/SOU due to space is the favoured option. I will plug away at the AGM to see if they will update. Very doubtful for next summer but 2020 I think they will get a new base.
Very surprised to see passenger numbers at Bristol so much higher than LBA where JET 2 is the dominant carrier by far.
Clearly must have more stands etc ( never used it) as LBA looks pretty much up to capacity overnight and for the first wave out.
G-POWH had an uneventful flight yesterday so hopefully the issue is fixed.
For my education what are the most likely causes of loss of cabin pressure?

Why doubtful next summer? Aircraft and crew shortages?

Would they not be selling them now in advance?

For the record B757 `POWH has arrived back at STN as AWC757P this evening from LBA.

A few infilling airframes for the Jet2 STN base this busy w/end too (planned or otherwise).

Any ideas how long an EU261 claim takes with Jet2? Suffered a near 4 hour delay earlier this month - peppered with some fantasy estimates from the handling agent
I'm only getting automated responses from customer services and I'm loathe to involve the various flight crew I know.........

Service was LS874 from FAO to MAN 8th Aug. Original 'frame went tech and G-LSAC was positioned in from LBA to MAN leading to the long wait - didn't get to bed before 5am.
