Don't have the exact breakdown, but they have mentioned they'll have 102 aircraft operating in August

Sounds about right when they recently welcomed their 100th into the fleet back in January

Wonder if the A330 will be in full colours as it is on a long lease.

That would involve painting a whole a/c though instead of a tail and some logo stickers. Obviously a cost saving measure

LS918 Squawk 7700?

LS918 TFN - MAN G-LSAN tonight squawked a general emergency tonight.
Did a couple of holding patterns to the east of Macclesfield before landing.
Anyone know what the issue was?

As mentioned recently here , Jet2 are breaking the mould at BHX finally seeing some older 738s based whilst the better performing 8MG models move elsewhere, JZBB positioned into NCL this afternoon , JZBD & JZHM have swapped for GDFZ & JZHD.

Nor EMA either.
Pointless booking anyway - nothing to do with the B word - the currently available discounting does not go beyond April '20, there in NO Insurance listed for S20 holidays yet and also hopefully the nice Crew on our next holiday flights in May will be dishing out One Time extra discount vouchers to use for S20
Every little helps.

Surely Stansted is to be their second largest base come 2020? If thereís to be an increase in A330 numbers in the future, Stansted must stand the highest chance of being the next big bus base?

If everything else seems to be on sale, either they're finalising their plans (extra aircraft maybe?) or the issue is with the airport themselves.
That might explain GLA and EDI, but EMA is part of the MAN/EMA/STN group, so that doesn't make sense

Summer 2020

Birmingham-Nice also announced as a new route for S20 a few weeks ago.

It looks like Jet2 expansion is focusing primarily on MAN, STN and BHX although I'm sure there will be some announcements from other airports as well.

Certainly at BHX there is still more demand for higher frequencies on routes like AGP, TFS, ALC, LPA etc, monthly pax figures are still down on these routes 18 months after the demise of Monarch and there are also some Jet2 suited seasonal city routes that could work from BHX, the primary example being Lisbon (always well loaded when operated by Monarch), plus Athens, Valencia, Seville....however I think these would only be launched in conjunction with other bases and such routes are already covered by other airlines at MAN and STN. Here's hoping!

Leeds

Does anyone know officially how many aircraft are based at Leeds, by type, either currently or the summer season?

Is Leeds still the home of a lot of the maintenance work?

I remain fascinated by the quiet utilisation of those 733s. I think 11 are still the fleet but a couple havenít flown for a while and I think (please correct me) 6 out of the remaining 9 run out of Leeds with, if youíre lucky, one flight a day.

Thanks LBIA - interesting and appreciated.

Any thoughts on the utilisation of those 733s? Feels like at present at least, far fewer aircraft are actually needed than are based. It certainly feels like a low utilisation.

Are those 733s performing well at the moment? Still got 3 x 86-88 build aircraft flying with the remainder mainly 98-99 end of line builds.
