2 x LS880?

Curious is all - as at 13.10 UK time there are 2 LS880's airborne.
One is G-LSAG 757 the ALC - MAN as normal. The other is G-LSAB 757 ex-FNC, having arrived there earlier, also as LS880 from MAN as well.
Is that normal or has FR24 got duff info from somewhere? Is the ex-FNC a rescue flight for an aircraft gone tech? Just curious.

it will be an error on flight radar - the ALC is the LS880 the FNC should be LS766

Various articles floating around today about the major recruitment drive from Jet2. 3000 jobs to be created across the network. From what I've seen so far:
Manchester - 500 jobs
East Midlands - 200 jobs
Glasgow & Edinburgh - 300 jobs
Leeds - 350 jobs
Belfast - 50 jobs
Newcastle - 200 jobs
Birmingham - 200 jobs
Stansted - 250 jobs
Total - 2050
All of the above quoted in articles as "nearly xx jobs" or "over xx jobs"
One article quotes "over 2000 jobs for the UK" and "More than 1000 positions for Europe"

That's quite some recruitment drive, and expansion!

Are all these additional posts, or are some replacements due to normal turnover?

There are plans to reopen the original Terminal 1 with a connection from the current terminal.

Terminal 2 is used by general aviation and will also soon be partially converted into an overseas HQ for Jet2.

Not sure about loadsamoney being shelled out but I'm under the impression that it's just office space for Jet2's new Spanish HQ at Alicante Airport rather than a dedicated terminal operation.

I'd heard around 240 as well. With all the extra 738's they've been getting (the MG's and mid-life's) they're averaging around 8 per year. As well as natural loss (retirement etc...) there will be growth needed as well.
Had a cabin crew friend confirm what we all suspect; the majority are summer fixed term roles, though not all are cabin crew. There's ground staff and handling crew as well, so a broad spectrum.

There are 3 more new aircraft to be delivered GJZBP/R/S and then there are 9 x second hand midlife B738ís that go from GDRTG to GDRTO with the first one being GDRTN due into QLA in the next number of weeks.

Some me of these will replace the B733ís that will be retired this winter.

Would this not be G-JZBP/R/S? I thought Q was unused in the UK?

Are the sources for the mid-life 738s already known and shareable?
Are all the G-CELx frames being retired WFU or are any being sold on?
Doesnt that mean Jersey is then off the list once the 300s are gone - and possibly other short / restricted fields?

Rumours of a certain middle eastern 737 operator.

I was told that if they can find the airframes, the total will be 110 by next summer.

In promotional releases this week Jet2 state they will be operating 96 a/c by Summer 19.

Potential capacity gaps to fill will be STN with on any recent day from Titan B763/B752/B734 & 2 x A321 all ops for Jet2.

There will still be some younger 733's left in the fleet which have been fitted with winglets

You could cross reference the plane type with other carriers and you'd probably find a few operators they've been bought from. For examples:
G-GDFF = 737-8[5P] = Air Europa
G-GDFW = 737-8[K5] = Hapag Lloyd (TUI)
G-DRTC = 737-8[08] = Air China
Likely to be several others as well

As for the 733's, everyone thinks they're all really old, but there are still a few that are only 20-22 years old, but all these are in the G-GDF# series, so yes the G-CEL# series will be discontinued, maybe this year, maybe next year (only E/H/O/V/X/Y remain)
this means JER (and probably AMS) both from LBA will continue to be served by the 733

So would these additional units be acquired to cover already announced growth or would they be used to add additional growth/capacity on existing routes?
