GCELO will retire around the 22nd November.

EDI is confirmed all B738 base by mid December and NCL will be also all B738 by end of April. This will only leave EMA, BFS and LBA with the 300ís for summer 2019.

As always in aviation nothing is 100% confirmed until it actually happens however this is the plan at the minute.
Thanks for the info, out of interest what happens in the retirement process? Also, where is QLA? Kemble?

QLA is Lasham. However, Jet2's retirees usually end up at Kemble, Gloucestershire. All rotable (reusable) parts are removed from the aircraft and returned to Jet2's spares inventory. This includes engines, landing gear, seats, galley and instruments. What is left, i.e. the airframe is essentially scrap metal and is rendered as such, to live again as baked beans tins and similar.

Can you give examples? I thought it was more likely Kemble or St. Athan.

Jet2's latest new B737-800 G-JZBP, currently on it's delivery flight to the UK, I assume that it is heading for LBA.

Heard a great rumour they are going to introduce the 321LR and are currently offering £50k golden hellos to type rated experienced crews .

Anyone in the know ?

Apparently no-one, whats your source?
Just seems strange given the fleet is all Boeing (minus leased A321/A330's)

I'd have thought that they'd be more interested in getting a deal for end of the line A321s. Similar to what they did with Boeing.

Did Primera not have a big order for A321's which Airbus will be looking for an alternative customer for, presumably at some discount?

Not many A321neos. Boeing MAX yes but i doubt either manufacturer would need to discount them to sell them.

Can I ask which airports currently have Jet2 757s based there please? LBA and MAN I believe, but NCL and EDI as well?
Thanks.

Glasgow is ALL 738, they did have 757s the first few years of the Glasgow base, I think the 757s are based at LBA and MAN only, the 757s will only visit GLA, NCL etc to operate the EWR flights
