is the Air Tanker lease by the hour?
In which case Jet2 will only pay for what they use

My guess would be no. My reasoning is that during this period, (AFAIK) no other operator can use it, it's exclusive to Jet2
Then it depends on the lease terms and conditions, which could be anyone's guess outside of Jet2/ Air Tanker senior management

G-CELY Woes

In view of G-CELY's double autopilot failure on climb out at LBA on the 17th, I wonder if Jet2 will now have this near 33 year old aircraft at the top of its WFU list to avoid repeat embarrassment of the G-CELI debacle?
G-CELY did a few test (and training?) runs at NQY post-repair but has not yet returned to service.

Given the rate of B733 phaseouts, i would guess its more a case of when, rather than if. They'll want to get as much use out of it when it does come back into service, so my eyes would be the start of the winter season.
I'd also expect a couple more B733's to go as well. Likely candidates are
G-CELE - nearly 31y
G-GDFE - 31y
G-GDFB - 27y

The rest are only 20-22y, so they'd likely stick around a bit longer

It did some circuit training at NQY, nothing more, nothing less.
It had a scheduled hangar visit yesterday. It's due to operate later today.

From what I've seen it's CELE/Y first in OCT, then FE at the start of next year. I haven't heard anything about FB however obviously as mentioned, it is the next for the chop I'd presume.

On the topic of operational service, G-LSAB (B752) had been in ALC for 6 days, positioned into LBA last night under EXS052B.
Anyone know whats going on here? The B733's in the peak season could be managed but wouldn't want to be short of a B752, with all the extra seats it holds.
I know Jet2 carry 2 B752 standbys so short term hasn't /shouldn't be an issue, but hope they get whatever it is sorted out

2h-20 delay.
Flight slot problem or snagged prior to loading Pax in spite of 2 engineering flights 18/6 and 20/6?

does it matter? if you were on the flight you'd have been told. If you weren't, then whats the big deal. Delays happen for all sorts of reasons.
If every 2 hour delay in the world was subject to scrutiny on a website it would need a pretty big server.

Nope - just interested.
A NEW aircraft for Jet2 after 7 months in store and paint job, and it falls at the first hurdle is all I was thinking.
BTW - I am a long time Jet2 flyer usually ex-BHX and EMA and it IS my favourite airline.

None of the above.

Bang on the money.

Or got hit with a nasty slot due to the weather on its route/capacity and staffing of ATC providers. A 2 hour delay due to a slot at this time of year is very common.

Anyone know what happened to the Leeds Naples this morning? It appears to have diverted to Amsterdam.

And LS1503 STN-DLM Escorted back to STN by the RAF (!!) due to 'seriously disruptive passenger' (sez the BBC) - Was said Pax put up against the wall and shot? How did she get to board in the first place? Flight can't have been long out of STN at turnround so must have been in a 'state' at boarding. No?

if you look at the video you can clearly see that there is more than alcohol involved in this incident.

How do you know it “fell at the first hurdle”? It could have been any number of reasons for a couple of hours delay - baggage delivery issues, then a missing passenger and a bag offload, which leads to a missed slot, then the new slot is another hour later, 2 hours gone, just like that. Never ASSUME.

Yesterdays Manchester to Lanzarote flight diverted to FUE after go around. The return flight diverted to Alicante after passing Lisbon at 34,000 feet. Any theories or maybe crew hours.
