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.
Well FWIW, back in April '16 when Emirates had just started their A380 BHX-DBX flights, the shiny new aluminium overcast went tech at BHX. The resultant delay was 7.1/2 hours whilst another A380 was ferried in (from LHR I think).
I used www.resolver.co.uk to put in my Claim and got paid out the full flight cost compensation of the entire BHX-DBX-SYD as Emrates were responsible for us missing our onward connections in DBX by many hours and so a considerable delay there before we could fly on to SYD.
Its free to use and we were paid out in 8 weeks. Dont know if that's good or bad - just sayin'.

If I was one of the right crew you knew I would have politely decline your request for help.
"Politely decline" - love the euphemism. Lol! But then again, on all my Jet2 trips so far I've never come across any crew, cabin or flight, who have been less than lovely.

Jet2 can really dig their heels in sometime, particularly if it's a contentious claim. In your case tho this appears to be a straightforward claim due to a tec issue. If you use their website it may be quicker as not all airlines respond to Resolver. You can push Jet2 along with a Notice Before Action if they don't come back to you in a reasonable time span and follow that with MCOL if required.

I have an outstanding claim with them myself.

That's why I used the word "loathe"

Thanks Trav a la have already mentioned the relevant court cases they lost and my eagerness to pursue this.

Will let you know how I get on - but I won't be calling PM

Delays

A difficult day with delays at Leeds, Manchester and to a lesser extent Newcastle with the Birmingham 9th aircraft positioning to Leeds this evening to try and help recover the schedule on LBA - ALC which got away 4hr15min late. I assume the Titan 757 has something to do with this, as it landed 15.15 at LBA and has not moved since?

However the Calvary is on its way with "HD" out of Lasham maintenance this afternoon and I assume after an air-test it landed back in Manchester this evening (3 weeks out of service) and their newest addition to the fleet is literally just airborne from Seattle BFI on delivery.

The Newcastle - Dalaman aircraft which diverted to Manchester Thursday did operate Manchester - Dalaman and then Dalaman - Newcastle tonight so another one not out of service for too long.

Hopefully all this will help get the schedules back on track.

The titan 757 has caused a fair few problems this year. This was the one that caused several passengers to train home just about 2 weeks ago.
We also lost a 737 due into Leeds but landed Manc after needing a longer runway due to a failure on flaps.
Titan should really be providing another plane till its sorted out.
Its been grounded 3 times now in a month due to tech issues.

That was G-GDFP, ex - Heraklion and according to The Sun etc etc was full of terrified Pax convinced they were about to die in a fiery inferno. And not even in Yorkshire either. ;-)
Now according to same junk journal it has been "withdrawn from service until the issue is resolved".
Well, no sh*t Sherlock!!

So is BOH 2019 or 2020? So many people 'in the know' seem to have originally been throwing about S19 and now it's changed to S20

BOH is just wild speculation, they have enough on their plates with the 9 bases they currently have.
I'd be surprised with S20 TBH. Barring any glaring opportunities they have the jump on, i'd peg S21/S22 for ANY new base, not just BOH

As far as I'm aware, this is the only public statement on the subject -

Speaking to TTG at the tour operator’s 2018 conference launch last week, head of trade sales Alan Cross said.... ....after Jet2 expanded to Stansted and Birmingham last year, it was focused, for now, on ensuring that these bases achieve their full potential rather than pursuing new ones. “It was a huge thing to get in there and establish ourselves,” said Cross. “It’s our second year at these bases. A lot of our time and focus has gone on them achieving their full potential. We're busy enough with them right now rather than thinking about any further expansion or bases in the UK at this time.”

Jet2 are already using Titan G-POWD on some STN flights. If I were a betting betting man, and if it were true, thats where my money would go but isnt 3Q a bit late for peak traffic.

Might be to cover some maintenance. They do have more of their planes out during winder for maintenance/ checks. But that again, It's extra capacity, so unless they've got some amazing loads, it would be surprising if there were any truth

The owners of The Mint Office in Leeds City Centre which houses Jet2 offices has listed the building on open market, they are looking to sell for around 45 million.
Wonder if Jet2/Dart Group might take the opportunity to snap it up themselves?

The Mint offices in Leeds hit the market for 45m | TheBusinessDesk.com
