Seats to some of these destinations are going to be hard to come by next summer, first to act will mop up. I guarantee we're not the only ones discussing it. There's a lot of TCX staff that would be pleased if somebody would act quickly too.

Any update on the four 2nd hand B737-800s that Jet2 where getting?
Going by Jethro's they should have been D-ASXR, OY-PSE, VT-SPF and an unknown reg.

I always originally thought about these as Christmas "shoppers specials". Perhaps times have changed?

If they could get some more A330s it would help too, given LS/TCX frequently did the same destinations within hours of each, at NCL at least, they could certainly fill those on some of the more popular routes e.g. DLM, TFS etc. giving extra capacity without having to put lots of extra flights or additional aircraft? There is also scope to cover some of the routes TCX were the sole operator for e.g. Santorini, Skiathos etc. which have always been popular.

New York is long haul. No matter how you market it. It's long haul. Those 757's go ETOPS. That is 100% long haul.

Did I ever say it wasn't? All I said was that I seem to recall the Jet2 New York flights started as a series of flights aimed at operating before Christmas to take people to the city for a shopping break. Are you saying this was not the fact? Yes Jet2 operate to a fantastic range of destinations and, as an operator, take every opportunity to develop new routes.

You are right they did , they even planned on flying trips to Boston and Toronto from GLA LBA and NCL but they were pulled. Nowadays the New York flights are simply a city break at peak time in the heart of Winter.

G-CELE scheduled on todays 17.00 LBA - AMS.
G-CELY last flew yesterday (25th) so maybe not for the knackers yard just yet.
But soon?

And D-ASXR was leased to SunExpress in July as TC-SON. Maybe temporary??

It would be an interesting landing in an A330 at Skiathos!
