More likely that the crew were unable and unfit to continue the duty after dealing with such a situation - it can happen. Depending on what had happened, the aircraft may also have been unfit ie requiring deep clean etc. Either or both would have resulted in a rescue aircraft needing to be sent and the original aircraft returning to base. Doesn’t happen often but it is particularly distressing for those involved when it does.

I should imagine it is.
Whatever happened, DRTD went out on the Venice run at c08.00 this morning.
Thanks for the info.

​​​​​Thank you for finding out.
How terribly sad. May his soul rest in peace. God Bless.
How traumatic for the passengers and the cabin crew who had to deal with this sad situation with their usual professionalism and compassion.
I guess flying the crew home was the caring thing to do and also the onward pax would not have had to reboard the aircraft but start 'afresh' as it were.
I assume that Jet2 has procecures in place to counsel both crew and those passengers directly affected.

According to press reports (be careful) the passenger involved had taken something they should not have been taking. Whatever it still is very sad and a waste of a life.

Anyone able to throw some light on what happened to todays LS405 LBA-PFO.

It caught my attention as it broke off it's approach to MAN above me at about six miles out.

After departing LBA it performed a 180 over the north sea, then a go around at MAN before landing there. Tec problem requiring a MAN based spare aircraft perhaps?

Looks like G-JZHG broke ;-) Declared an Emergency and diverted to MAN. Manchester Evening News says it could be "hydraulics failure or trouble with an engine" Well that just about covers it.

Relacement as EXS405D with G-DRTF left MAN at 12.46 and due into PFO at 19.02 local (17.02 UK time).
Like you say, gone tech and spare aircraft available at MAN so it made sense to divert there.

UPDATE http://avherald.com/h?article=4bd97efe&opt=0
Hydraulics failure.

Yes. I didnt want to point out that this aircraft was the one involved in this weeks well-publisised hydraulics failure diversion to MAN.
Maybe the same problem?

medical diversion - not all diversions are for technical reasons

T`was almost certainly the case...

Hence my post yesterday AM.

STN has been used several times since EXS set up self handling accepting unfortunate medical emergencies with their a/c enroute the North.

A technical problem with an a/c & diversion would utilize probably LBA/MAN with more EXS engineering & also hopefully replacement available more quickly.

There is no "spare" at STN.

Apparently his partner was challenged by staff after spending a lot of time in the toilet and, on leaving she had white powder around her nose.Further white powder was seen to the side of the sink.
The man then panicked and downed the rest of the "white powder" with a can of red bull and the overdose was the reason for his demise.
Two of the crew carried out CPR on him in the aisle. to no avail. The woman was arrested at TLS.
No wonder the whole of the crew were traumatised.

Bit of a random one, but has anyone heard of LS taking over Thomas Cook? Heard from a source that they were considering it

Thomas Cook has said it's looking for investors into the airline so maybe Jet2 could be an option there. Jet2 could then takeover the airline part and Thomas Cook holidays could use their fights then.

Looking forward then with that 2020 "teaser"...

Agreed...lots of doubters concerning Jet2 to STN & into the LCC "lions den".

Their & STN`s growth has been nothing short of remarkable since.

Jet2 have been market makers here & MAG it is obvious were confident of the outcome too.

It appears interesting that for STN`s catchment now the Jet2 CEO refers to it as the South & Southeast...a very large market.

As with Emirates to STN,MAG too have the data/knowledge & acumen to drive their investment on.

The STN CEO has a pretty formidable record previously for growing MAN & customer airlines too hence the reasoning a while back for switching him here.
