Bet Jet2 will be glad to see the back of that one.

Also, fairly ironic on what looks like your first post and you report on a different aircraft type to your name :P

Nice crisp day for it.
On 23/11 Jet2 would have operated GLSAG for 13 years after acquiring from China Southern.
I always think the 757s look more 'graceful' on Approach than the 737s. Not that it matters.

Flew on LSAG last week down to TFS and I have to say what a tidy, tidy aircraft it looked. The cabin was utterly immaculate. It sounded great and felt great.

Granted I don't know the state of this old bird under the hood, but there was not one hint that it was anywhere near ready for the heap. Very sad. The 738s just don't come close from a PAX point of view.

They’re great aircraft but they’ve had their day, well at least Jet2’s certainly have (albeit well-maintained but very old). The Sky Interior in the new 738s offers a much better passenger experience and many do notice and comment on this. Then there’s obviously the efficiency and reliability issues compared to the younger planes.

If that was LS917 on 11/11 you were indeed fortunate to be on its last revenue earning flight.
I think at 32yrs old even with Jet2s TLC it was time to be retired as planned.

Has the move gone ahead as planned? I can't see any reference to it on FR24.

As sad as it is, the days of the Boeing 757 as a passenger aircraft are numbered. TUI are withdrawing their ones that are a lot younger that Jet2's.

I've noticed that 2 of Jet2's 757s haven't seen service for a while. G-LSAJ and G-LSAC. Are these both withdrawn? I know AC had a few technical issues over the summer season.

I don’t think they’ve been withdrawn quite yet, perhaps major checks? They’ve both been out of service since the end of September with AC at MAN and AJ at QLA by the looks of things.

Such an aesthetically elegant aircraft.

Boeing 757-200, G-LSAD is next to go in April 2020. This will be followed by Boeing 737-3QC, G-CELY in May 2020
Both Boeing 757-200, G-LSAH & Boeing 737-300, G-GDFB are set to go in June 2020.

Anymore news on the 321s?

Are these long term acquisitions, fully part of the family? Crewed by Jet2 cockpit staff?

If so, is this the start of a build up of used (and maybe new) 321s in the fleet?

Is the list of the initial 7 known yet?

The 7 x A321’s will be under the Jet2.com AOC which means their are either owned or leased. They will be fully crewed by Jet2 pilots, cabin crew and engineers.

The initial 7 are ex TCX aircraft - the are definitely not the ex monarch cook ones as they are different engines and there is only 4 of them. This would not be economical sense to operate two different engines on 7 aircraft.

Thanks.

So, anything that suggests that A321s will be secured as much as 738s on the second hand market?

Seems like a good move! Looking forward to seeing the 321 in LS colours!
