G-GDFx = Great Deal Friendlier
G-CELx = Channel Express

I donít know what G-JZBx relates to apart from the obvious (perhaps) JZ element.

G-JZBx

Only guessing here, but J for Jet2, Z because it looks like a 2 (Jet2) and B for Boeing

G-JZB..

Will be interesting to see what comes next in a few years time.
They've started a Villas product, so maybe the next series could be G-JZV#?
Also helps with aircraft ID, since they have A#, B#, F#, H# and T# lines

The G-DRTx series are all the leased units, so likely will be sooner rather than later before they need a new series depending on their used aircraft acquisition needs. I'd personally like to see G-EXSx as a nod to their heritage!

There are other leased units within the fleet, not in that series:- G-GDFC, G-GDFF, G-GDFJ, G-GDFS, G-GDFV, G-GDFW, G-GDFX, G-GDFZ. And also G-JZHA & G-JZHB.

I'm also sure that a couple of the G-DRTx series are owned.

G-DRTT (Ex Primera) aircraft currently out for a test flight from LBA - I think.

Any idea when G-GDFT will be in the air again?

Thanks! Any word on when the other 2nd hand B737-800 are due? Going by Jethros there is ten more due prior Summer 2019.

I know that Jet2 is phasing out its very old -300s but instead of going for a full-only 738-fleet, shouldn't it lease some newish 737-700 to stay in the 150pax-category? Type-rating shouldn't be a problem, the planes are not that old (compared to the 733s and 752s) and they'd cover a lot of thinner/winter routes where the 738s may be a bit big..Plus the 737-700 has great range and can fly to/from the Canaries/Cyprus with no problem..Just a thought..

In Europe the B737-700 hasn`t really sold that well and the UK market seems to not like them at all, B738 does`t seem to have any problems in general on Cyprus or Canary Islands

Yes i know the 738 flies without any problems to Canaries,Cyprus..I was referring more to the pax capacity issue, where a 737-700 can replace the 733s on thinner routes or winter routes. And the 737-700 might not have had the success of Airbus but it's still flown by TUI,Tarom,KLM,Blue Air, Germania until recently,SAS

For the little difference it is to operate a 700 vs an 800 it isn't worth restricting yourself, might as well operate a 800 with the extra 40 seats in the hope of selling some of them rather than being constrained.

See no case for Jet2 to operate 2 varients of the 737. The 737-800 has 189 seats which is only about 5 more than the A320 these days. With airlines in direct competition with Jet2 like easyjet phasing out the A319, Ryanair and TUI operating the 738 and larger MAX models Jet2 would just be handicapping theirself with a smaller model that has considerably less seats.

If they really wanted an aircaft for thin routes, it would make more sense to go for one that was purpose built for the segment, like the A220-300, rather than a shink which would only have marginally lower running costs than the main model .

G-DRTT is currently on it's return leg, of it's first revenue flight for Jet2, on it's way back to Leeds from Alicante.

G-DRTH is flying a test flight from Leeds today, currently over the west coast of Ireland.

The workshop will be ready soon to receive some more of the 2nd hand B737-800, for their Jet2 preparation.
