I see Jet2 have delayed by 24 hours all their flights to Skiathos today due to “adverse weather”.
Adverse weather forces Jet2 to delay Skiathos flights by 24 hours

Seems a bit of an overreaction given other airlines seem to be operating normally, and the TAF for today looks pretty benign. Anyone got any more information?

Forecast has rain and the runway is extremely limited when wet. Rather than gamble and have aircraft/passengers/crews out of position/hours due to a diversion, they've elected to delay by 24 hours.

Test flights for G-SUNJ (D-AZXM) yesterday 10/05, delivery shouldn't be too far away now.

odd to see a Jet2 A321 doing NCL -PIK, at start of summer season (assuming its for training). Especially in the middle of a thunderstorm !

Er no, it's about 20 hours late, so unlikely

That was 2nd test flight, 3rd was today. Subject to any snags could be any day now.

G-SUNJ (d-azxm) has now had 4 test flights in Hamburg.
Previous frames only had 2 (including the customer acceptance flight) prior to delivery.

anybody know a reason for this?

I would guess the flight tests have shown up some snags which will need to be rectified before delivery is accepted.

If you mean G-SUNG I have heard it was delayed going in hangar due to the que of 738s in front that were taking long to get service ready
Anyway the old paint hangar is to be taken on by Jet2 for airbus products when they are major overhaul from 2026

Nothing like getting all your ducks in place when you are taking on a major new Product yet your older current Product is likely to need a little more attention due to it been sitting around all winter. Should Jet2 Engineering not have built extra facilities into the plan?

G-JZDD getting stuck in PMI & HER with the same issue within 36 hours seems a bit of an interesting one!
