Monarch went bust - Get over it! The CAA did what they had to do at considerable expense too.

[QUOTE=crewmeal;9935829]Why are the press making such an issue on what is presumably a positioning flight outbound at this time of the year. There are loads of flights that go out empty to pick up returning passengers at the end of the season.


Because it's a fun story? Jeez. Lighten up dude

Are we likely to see more second hand B737-800's joining the fleet this winter? To cover some extra fleet expansion in the light of the Monarch demise.

Or is it more likely that they will try and source further A330 leases for the summer?
I believe that there will be second one from AirTanker (G-VYGM) next summer, along with the return of G-VYGL.
Also, as Titan are reported to be acquiring 2 ex AirBerlin A330's, are we likely to see one or possibly both of these leased over summer 18? This would certainly increase capacity at Manchester & possibly Stansted?

I see Primera's B737-800 (OY-PSA) has returned home this afternoon following it's summer lease with Jet2.

And it looks like Titan's A321-211 (G-POWN) is due back to Stansted this evening, after it's return flight from Malta to Manchester.

It's possible. Jet2 do have a further 14 738NG's coming over the winter, of which at least 1 (G-JZBA) already been delivered and 2nd due soon. No doubt these will already have been allocated, but given the extraordinary circumstance of ZB's demise, a couple extra wouldn't harm, or they may even keep some 733's for another year.

With the Summer season over are we likely to see the 8MG aircraft spread between bases to that pretty much all 738 departures are on new aircraft over the winter?

Depends on the loads.
I would expect the 300's still be used

GL is also positioning from MAN to PIK for end of lease before coming back to operate two EWR flights from MAN and 2 from NCL - (STN now on a B757)

GJZBB has already been delivered and will go into service this Thursday.

The 300's will still be used from all bases except GLA MAN STN and BHX.

Expect a few more 800's (2nd hand) to be delivered as with previous years. (Even for this summer 2 second hand aircraft were bought GDRTA and B )

Expect to see the A321 possibly back next summer along with possibly an extra one or two A330's.
If rumours are true GL from air tanker.

I read on another forum that G-VYGM which is currently with Thomas Cook, is expected to join G-VYGL at Jet2 next summer.

And there are also the rumoured 2 ex AirBerlin A330's due to Titan, which are a possibility for Jet2, as they have a good working relationship with Titan.

At the rate of expansion Jet2 are currently going through, a total of 4x A330's wouldn't be completely off the table. would they all be based at MAN though? or will they spread them to other bigger bases.
On that note, could LBA take an A332?

I wouldn’t be surprised if one is based at STN in addition to Titan 757 I know for a face that jet2 are more than surprised with demand at STN helped by the Ryanair issues and the demise of Monarch at LTN and plan to double its based aircraft by summer 2019

It's been noted in the BFS thread that some dates upto Apr 2019 are now on sale. Worth watching in the next few days for any surprises?
