Yes, I read it as a temporary stoppage of the assembly line. After all if your building 40+ per month and only have finite parking space then something had to happen.

TUI own a couple of them, rest are leased. Obviously the lessor will I am sure be pleased to extend the leases for TUI or to another airlines at the right price (which is probably a better price for a passenger airline than being converted to freighters)

Second-hand B737-800s
Five more were expected prior to summer 2019 but have not arrived. Are they not required? It has been suggested that G-DRTI may be in service soon, but why has there been a delay?

Supply and demand? I expect the price and availability of second hand 738's has changed a bit since those plans were made.

Yes, but I understand that the number of standby aeroplanes has been reduced, and possibly some leases extended.

Operated the LS819 MAN-RHO, then went AOG.
G-JZHH was used yesterday under LS8200 to operate the inbound sector. Delay would have been around 18hrs

G-LSAC still in RHO at the moment

Whatís the maintenance programme like for LS over the summer months? I know most airlines do base changes but it seems more common for LS than other airlines i.e aircrafts moving from NCL to LBA or swapping down in ACE/TFS so they go back to a different base.

Seems a bit pointless doesnít it? Iím guessing they possibly swapped an older BFS based aircraft into NCL for some kind of maintenance before swapping it straight back.

Thats what i was thinking with NCL being a bigger base that it must be to get some mainenance on a BFS aircraft.

G-DRTI

I was just wondering if there is an update on the status of this aircraft.

Most databases agree that it appears to still be in Manchester and has never entered service.

Are Jet2 keeping this aircraft as it still shows registered to them on the CAA website G-INFO.

No doubt all has not gone to plan as it was taken in June but nothing of note has been published recently about its status (outside of Jet2).

Jet2 seemed to have coped without it although BHX sees quite a few of the G-DRT range and there has been more than one or two 757's appearing to cover tech aircraft.

OP
Iím guessing that this is the aircraft that has been tucked up in the back corner of the EXS hangar @ MAN for quite some time. I saw it last week and it was still wearing a basic and very tatty JAI scheme. Hope this helps.

Cheers for the info just wondered if there had been a change of mind but I assume there is a major issue as 2 months on the ground in peak time is not what would have been anticipated.

They could have done with it today as the BHX schedule has been disrupted and I think a first for Jet2 at BHX with an overnight delay on an outbound. This afternoons Antalya is now due out 09.45 in the morning, plus this afternoons Malaga is running 3 hours late after the aircraft needed an air-test over the North Sea and as for YL-LCV! It went to Rome (with a friend) around 4 hours late alongside B733 G-GDFK which positioned in from Leeds. Rumour has it a slide was blown on the A321 and thus reduced capacity - both aircraft have returned successfully. Quite a day

Hi Pete
I can`t remember where I read it but I am sure I saw that it was due to be in hangar for 13 weeks so obviously something
major was due to be done and I guess when that is finished it will be painted
