Haven't insiders at Jet2 on this forum said numerous times that Jet2 have no interest in operating in that market?

I think its more likely that the announcement of Gold Medal/Travel2 doing their own charters would fit the Orlando market better.

MLB v SFB/MCO

Most UK and German charter airlines started to switched to SFB from MCO around 20 years ago -
UK airlines were offered greatly reduced landing fees at Sanford, and therefore many carriers relocated their operations.

Virgin and BA stayed put at MCO
I gather was it Thomas Cook who went back to MCO in recent years.

TUI's latest move is to tie-in with their large cruise ship operation, with the MLB airport nearer Port Canaveral

If Jet2 ventures to Florida my guess is they will fly to SFB or MCO

You're correct. Thomas Cook operated into Orlando.

Plenty of others to choose from though. Jet2 owned reg's currently start with A, B, F, H, L and T
W is also out, as they lease these from Titan
That leaves upto 19 different options
Probably a reg like JZDA or something

Jet 2 will not require these aircraft until the 2020 summer season, with a limited number prior to that for crew training.
I would not put any mind to where these aircraft might be heading.
They will need to go into storage, ideal climate not being in England or Ireland.
Prior to delivery all 7 aircraft will require a heavy maintenance check to clear them for 24 months (what was a "C" check), as is the norm and a paint job.
This can be anywhere in the world and is a lot cheaper outside of the UK.

As for Jet2 possible long haul, thereís some big gaps in the market that would fit the Jet2 demographic very well. Orlando/Sanford, Puerto Plata, Varadero, Holguin and Cayo Coco spring to mind.

Cabin crew on our recent Jet2 flight out of BHX confidently told me that flights to Orlando would be starting in 2020.
I appreciate that this is far from an official announcement, but it would appear that the rumours may be true.

IF this is true, I donít see that crew would know it before even the duty managers, let alone further up the chain. It may be true, but definitely wouldnít take crews word for it.

Scottie Dog in all fairness confidently and confidentially are two different words with two different meanings.

Mmm... its not gone that well for other's who tried long haul charter leisure...
(Monarch, Excel, Excalibur etc)
Why do they just not stick to what they seem to do very well... good product short haul.
The logistics and costs with long haul are in different league.

Jet2 have no interest in starting long haul. They know their market and what works for them and have enough going on next year with the a321 project.

in other news GDRTR is on its way from CTU via Astana and then MAN arriving in the morning.
