Which was ??
evelop need it themselves due to late A350 arrival
or
jet2 can't fill the aircraft anymore
I don't doubt Jet2 could have sold all the 350+ seats it had, the fact they brought in a 2nd Air tankers testament to that.
My money would be either on Evelop for the A350 delay or...dare i say it...uncertainty from the 'B' word

Neither probably. The deal probably fell through like the Air Asia A330-300 one did for Summer 2015. Jet2 took stock; continued to grow; and within 2 years had 1 wide-bodied operating for them both during the Summer for Short Haul and EWR for winter operation. Within 4 years of the original plan they want 3 - i doubt that they cannot fill them. Could probably fill one A330 going twice daily to PMI during June, July, August and some September.

I reckon the uncertainty isn't helping. Like the Air Asia A330 for 2015 - probably pull; take stock; grow & revisit within a few years. Within 2 years we'll know the fall out from Brexit at least.

Have G-GDFH B737-300 & G-GDFT B737-300 both been withdrawn from service or are they getting a 'C' Checks?

Also anyone know where the other 2nd hand B737-800s are coming from? Four are ex Primera. But there is meant to be 5 or 6 more 2nd hand due for S19.

G-GDFH has been WFU, citing significant issues, G-GDFT is just in for checks.

Was in for maintenance, found corrosion on the wing. Must have been serious enough to warrant retirement.
Shame since it probably had a good few years left in it by Jet2's standards

Indeed and after this year it will leave only GDFG and GDFT in the .com livery in the -300 fleet.

Also G-GDFE, unless that is due to be retired as well? I thought only the rest of the G-CEL*'s were going?

G-GDFH is at Lasham and destined to be scrapped once all the usable components have been removed.

G-JZBK positioned to NCL today in what looks to have replaced 1 of 2 final remaining 733's at the base, Tomorrows NCL-GNB is the last flight im aware of on the 737-300 from Newcastle.

Knew I would forget GDFE! I've heard very little on it but I would assume it will follow shortly behind CELE/Y

G-GDFE operated the Newcastle to Grenoble and return flight today, then went onwards to operate NCL to Sofia and return so maybe this may/ not be last 733's out of Newcastle
