It should swap back out in the next couple of days back to a “new” aircraft.

With BHX migrating now fully to old aircraft but Stansted in general all new (except Titan of course) is there a specific reason for this. I understand the reasoning behind earlier explanations and that the new aircraft with SFP might be better served at NCL, LBA and the Scottish bases where a lot of the destinations are further (e.g. The Canaries) but I was wondering why the remaining new aircraft were not split between say 25/75 or 50/50 between BHX & STN?

It goes without saying Jet2 has a huge competitor at Stansted and basically they don't have anywhere near as much competition at BHX (no slight on TUI who have a fabulous schedule this summer from BHX) and I wonder if that was some other reasoning such as internal accounting if most of the BHX aircraft were now owned or is it to ensure the new aircraft are at STN to give it the best opportunity for on time departures (less likely to go tech) thus ensuring they compete on all levels or be better than the competition? I realise it won't be for the passengers benefit as all Jet2 aircraft as we are frequently told are immaculate inside and they wouldn't have a clue if they were flying a 1 year old aircraft or 18 year old one.

Your thoughts definitely sound pretty plausible regarding the basing of the aircraft. I’d have to disagree slightly on the bold part - I personally feel there is a very noticeable difference between the ‘old’ interior and the new Sky Interior.

STN being the furthest south and alot of routes being shorter there than any other base im suprised they have an all new 738 base still. Thought it was just to kick start the brand off in BHX and STN originally.

You mean more discerning than us hicks in the BHX and EMA sticks?
As they say, you can always tell when you get to Birmingham - the M6 is still cobbled.

The cabins on the refurbished machines is also of a very high standard and most people would never know the difference even on the B733s

7th May - Still no S20 on sale from EMA/GLA and EDI. Anyone in the know, know what's going on? It's a little bit concerning that they have not released these 3 bases onto sale yet.

I remember last year STN was last and went on sale around 3rd May.

I wouldn't be too worried about the delay in S20 flights. The majority of customers will not be booking that far in advance so a couple of months delay will not be the end of the world.

Very funny...Only trying to reassure folks that you can't read into a base not being launched by a couple weeks delay in getting Summer 2020 out there. I am all for having 18 months on sale for your core network.

One of the things that bugs me about Jet2 (and there's not much apart from 'that song') is that I can book in advance an in-flight meal which is OK-ish at time of booking BUT airborne Pax can buy,on spur of the moment, a completely different set of meals that look better, probably taste better and are far better presented.
Why are they not available at time of booking?

It’s not meals... it’s just houmous and pitta chips and popcorn.
