A few A321neo options to replace 757 and A320neo for core fleet, however A220 could be a good outside bet!

I struggle to see where they fit in, maybe the routes into Jersey?

Jersey route is doing really well with all the new destinations this summer with Jet 2 , the B738 performance on the route is fine even turned off taxiway F after landing on runway 08 the other day

Sound like the Jersey papers in the Electra.

Jet2 arrivals at Leeds

Does anyone know why there are regular arrivals at Leeds from Manchester and Newcastle? Are the aircraft picking up pax at Newcastle and Leeds or just positioning? There's several on Saturday on the Leeds arrival board

Lots of combined flights as loads are poor.

Makes sense to combine to achieve a decent load

I'm surprised that they are looking for so many new planes given that there must be plenty nearly new/not very old models available at the moment and previously owned is true Jet2.
​​Buf not surprised at the move to Airbus given that the A321 is the ideal replacement for the 757s and the A319 could replace the 733s.

I doubt many low cost operators would take any sort of brand new A319 model nowadays…

Jersey

Anyone know if these short Jersey flights are seasonal? Just for this covid period? Or are jet2 considering them the bread and butter routes..

Do Jet2 have any engineering hangars at LBA?
Can't be good for the stored B737-300s to be out in the open for so long in such a soaking wet environment!

Absolutely, comes across as easy/free PR/ positive spin over the financial situation. Every airline is still haemorrhaging cash right now.

I don’t think you are factually correct in making sweeping statements like that. There are some UK airlines holding their own. I can’t say whether Jet2 is one of them, however.

Surely now would be a good time to re equip and type rate pilots

They got 34 brand new 737-800NG's back in 2015 at no doubt a decent price, since they were approaching the end of their production cycle, while the order book for most others consisted of the 737MAX. While ordering new aircraft now may seem ambitious, many are cancelling/deferring orders that were part of their expansion strategy and putting downward pressure on pricing. Jet2 however are in need of a fleet renewal, and that's crucial longer-term if they are to emerge from the pandemic as a successful, competetive carrier. I wouldn't be so quick to rule out a potential order from them- Airbus or Boeing.
