Unless they lease (or buy) a few more A330s....there are a few lying around at the moment. And available personnel to crew them.

Jet2 fly to EWR, not JFK, but we get the idea

Clearly need the right aircraft.
That said the cost of setting operations up would not add to the bottom line.
Agreed, long haul is expensive to set up and to maintain a good level of service. The ideal situation is to increase the short haul business with extra aircraft from the TCX fleet, say something between 10 and 20 Airbus 321s with ex-TCX pilots and engineers. Also it is screaming out they should take the opportunity of expansion of bases at LGW and BRS. STN has been a great success and further expansion there has been, almost certainly, due to a lack of aircraft. With the extra aircraft from TCX, JET2 would also make a success of LGW. No bets but will hold my breath for an announcement next week.

I think Jet2 would do well from EXT and BRS
As for LGW they might be wise to stick to their core values for now and not sleep with that beast.

Long Haul - ? Well they have their toes in the water with EWR -
The Caribbean cruise ship flights now have to be covered - who is or will be doing them?

Inc that 19yo TCX A330 at MAN, allegedly about to be broken up unless someone pays the cost of its uncompleted maintenance.?

It has been reported that Titan are getting an A330-200 for summer 2020 (arriving April 2020).

I wonder if we may see that flying for Jet2 next summer?

If I remember correctly Air Tanker can't operate flights to Cuba. TCX were unable to use these air frames on their flights to Cuba. Something to do with the military connection I believe and radar equipment.

Looks like another 2 further flights were also done.

Yeah a friend of mine up there told me the first was a check flight and the last 2 were “shakedowns” at the CAAs request

Interesting this frame was originally ordered by Delta but not taken up. Seems to have been mostly with Jet Airways for past 15 years.

And probably not that well well looked after, judging by the time it took to get it straight, and the number of new exterior panels prior to paint.
The last flight looks like just a ground 'hot soak'. No FR24 actual flight recorded.

FR24 flights recorded for all three flights on the 12th, all heading north from MAN and back again, in excess of 1 hour each. As indicated above, one was a check flight, followed by two “shakedowns”.

100% FALSE.
Jet2 have stated there is no intention of starting long haul, due to the complexity and cost of doing so

If I remember correctly Air Tanker can't operate flights to Cuba. TCX were unable to use these air frames on their flights to Cuba. Something to do with the military connection I believe and radar equipment.
This is the exact same reason why they can't fly into Cyprus on the A330

It doesn’t necessarily mean that the aircraft hasn’t been looked after properly. If not all the paperwork comes with the aircraft then some repairs will have to be redone. Looking at the patchwork on the fuselage of this aircraft then it looks like every skin repair has been redone.

I know of a few cases in the UK were the paperwork regarding skin repairs was incorrect/missing and the leasing company required every skin repair to be redone. Redoing the work is the only way they can assure that is done in accordance with the Structural Repair Manual.
