G-LSAG again?
Flew LS917 MAN-TFS yesterday (11/11) but didn't return.
The resident G-DRTF did its first ex TFS revenue flight and brought LS918 back to MAN just a couple of hours late.
G-LSAG gone AOG again or just ringing the changes with the 737??

Ex MON G-ZBAM and G-ZBAO in hybrid MON/TCX livery. I wonder if they'll now get a total makeover?
Plenty of time - Jethro's says 'acquired. Due Summer 20' along with 5 other A321s

They were due into the paint shop for TCX this winter so imagine they will be in full Jet2 livery by start or service.

It's still AOG in TFS at the moment.
To go AOG once is bad enough, but to go AOG twice in the space of a week, at the SAME destination
Surely the writings on the wall for this one.

Mmmh - shades of G-CELI perhaps except this time the 'rags' haven't found out to make a meal of it.

Correct, AG is the first to be retired and will be gone from the fleet within days, as planned for a while, so not related to the 2 unconnected recent AOG incidents.

Good to see them take on charters as well.

At BHX today 11 fairly busy based aircraft operating 15 flights plus they have added a 12th to take Wasps to Bordeaux for their Challenge Cup game.

coming back to MAN tonight hopefully and then it isnít planned to have any passenger flights until it completes its end of life/de-Jet2 Ified and will then position out on Tuesday morning for the scrap yard. Nothing to do with itís recent tech issues - this has always been planned.

en route.
"Better to travel hopefully than to arrive" - R.L.Stevenson, meaning the journey is more enjoyable than the destination.
Never more true than in LSAG's case.

JZHR & JZHM are at AYT with what I believe is a travel agents outing from Newcastle and Stansted
