The only disgraceful thing is your attitude and lack of respect
Not only is your comment about STN customers misplaced it is also very immature.
From a business point of view it makes good business sense to place new shiny and reliable aircraft at a new base surly you can understand the reason for this.

I assume that on a day they get out the right side of bed they'll want to take that one back!

I'd much rather fly with one of them than a drunk and violent Irishman that causes the flight to be diverted. Because every single person from Belfast is like that, aren't they....

Oh for goodness sake!

The poor Scotch,always whining about how bad they have because of the big bad English people.

Perhaps you should be greatful that Jet2 base 12 aircraft in Central Scotland, supporting hundreds of jobs and providing provide the economic growth that international connectivity brings?

I always thought Scotch was poured from a bottle and drunk. Too much consumed and you are not fit to fly.

Hugely disappointing that the first B738 at BFS is G-JZHH which is not one of the brand new aircraft but is 17 years old.
So what, it's 17 years old. If it's properly maintained and the interior kept in good order so that Mr or Mrs Average can't tell how new or old it is what's the issue?

Might just be that BFS is an established base, whereas BHX/STN are new, so it would make sense to throw the shiny new planes here for the first 2/3 years, to get it established. Then once these are built up, can they look at replacing with newer A/c.

I can't see the 733's lasting too much longer, and will eventually be replaced by 738's. maybe that's your opportunity

There are a lot of 738 due over next few months and aircraft are rotated as of need
i:e maintenance and scheduling so things will change.

Strictly tongue in cheek Sir, but your username is very apt in this case.......pouring fuel onto the “Irish/British” debate in that area.
Do I hear the Fifes and Drums in the background ?

GLAinsider......what a rediculous and ill informed post.
I’m sure our wonderful clientele will appreciate the permanent introduction of the 800 into Belfast....however old the a/c.
I’m sure others too will be on the way in the future.

As a pax, the only interior visible differences of being in a “new” airframe is that you might be aware of are the bigger overhead bins and that awful red “tarts boudoir” interior mood lighting.

Easy now... that's been chosen after careful consideration by a highly trained team of 20something year old marketing "experts". I'm sure due dilligence in the form of psychological analysis was applied to the lighting colour choice and it wasn't just a matter of "The company logo colour is red, so lets make the lighting red".

Don't get me started on the sanctimonious new PA announcements. Whoever came up with those must have a very low opinion of the passengers carried by Jet2.

Yep those must be the same expertsthat came up with " Take me there" and pain points, ugh.
Why do announcements (not just Jet2 it has to be said) use the phrase "at this time" whats wrong with now?
TGIF time for a glass of something alcoholic

Having not flown with Jet2 since April, can someone elaborate on the new PA announcements?

I must say I'm not a fan of the "old" PA announcements. Always feels like you're being given into trouble and being read the riot act before departure. 99.9999% of passengers don't need a lesson in how to conduct themselves in public.

Im afraid the 00.00001% is why they do it, anybody who has experienced an air rage/alcohol in the air or stag parties will know what i mean, as for jet2 and their policies for no alcohol before 0800, good job ,but stop pushing the sale of it on the tannoy before 0800!

I flew with them last month and can`t say I noticed anything different about the PA`s, or maybe I wasn`t listening. Mind you I ticked a lot of the boxes on here of late:
1..I went from Stansted,instead of Leeds, with all those awful posh people
2..I went on a brand new 738 both ways
3..The colour inside was that tarty red boudoir job

Just to make matters worse I loved the large overhead bins and thought the sculpture design of the ceiling, rather nice


I`ll er get me coat...........

Stansted Essex, posh people ! It may be the South East but some may question your assessment, however awful may apply to some like any other county ! Jet2 has identified a market and like Yorkshire or any other area they operate from they are providing a choice and I think their branding is becoming more well known in the south now that they expanded their operation.
