What about the 757s; from both or just Man?
Jet2s A321s are MAN for S22, there are damp lease A321s allocated to BHX and STN. The B757s are all now MAN based.

G-DRTB

Anyone know what was wrong (if anything) with DRTB? Arrived from MAN on the 13th and only today departing as EXS53YB to BRS. Why would it spend 6 days on the ground at TFS? I know they used to have a spare based there didn't they?

As you said, they have a standby aircraft there in the winter months. They had about 18 flights to TFS today, the largest UK operator to the Canaries.

TB will have been doing a stint as the standby unit and they rotate the aircraft regularly. Unless of course its actually launched to recover something. You will probably find the aircraft that came in from BRS has taken its place and will remain in TFS

There must be a big question over Airtanker A330 operations for Jet2 this summer now.
I would imagine the RAF is going to be exceptionally busy conducting fast jet AAR over NATO Baltic States and covering for potential extra Russian probing closer to home.
I wonder if the MOD will trigger the recall of these two planes??

I very much doubt it..These two are part of the `Reserve Fleet` and are Passenger/freight orientated. I don`t believe they are equipped for AAR

Could be called back for Passenger/freight duties to release others that AAR equiped from these roles

All 14 aircraft procured by Airtanker have an AAR capability fitted. Parts may be disabled or boxed off when flying civil, but I understand it is days of a job to revert to a military specification.

I thought I'd read up to 6 months for conversion.

What is the point of it taking that long to convert back when all the cable and wiring is already there

I thought G-VYGJ, GK, GL, GM were for additional revenue services for the company "Air Tanker". Considering it's only just 2 A330's I very much doubt they will be pulled back into RAF business.

This could change if the Chinese decide to invade Taiwan. Which given the fact the Chinese are dangerous thugs of the world it is likelihood.

They are the "surge fleet" of Airtanker, so used for revenue-generating ops when not needed by the military is my understanding.
They are also used (mainly VYGJ) for the South Atlantic airbridge

Engine choice for the A321neo confirmed as CFM LEAP-1A - for up to 75 aircraft (150engines) plus spares and a maintenance support package.

Im sure there was a time when the new build 738s were deployed only at specific airports or only on the longer routes potentially because they were more efficient.

Is it now the case that all the 738s, old and new, are used randomly across the 738 network?

It's quite spread now. The original new 738s delivered to them have the short field performance package. Ideally yes you would put newer, lighter aircraft with more efficient engines and better fuel burn on the long routes but equally you sometimes see a 20+ years 738 doing a PFO from the North.

Each base has a mix of new and midlife 738s now, the newer tails usually do more challenging fields like SZG and INN.

BHX and STN had exclusively new 738s during the first 2 years of operation but they too have a mix now.

EDI and GLA are normally new-build 738s only but occasionally see an older aircraft and all other bases seem to have a mixture.

Try book flight only on jet2.com, as I'll think you'll find the last MAN-KRK operates March 21st, then restarts May 27th. Nothing available in between them dates now.
