Gran Canaria to Newcastle flight diverted over passenger disruption - BBC News


"Jet2... said it took a "zero-tolerance approach" to disruptive behaviour and would "vigorously pursue" any costs incurred as a result of the diversion."

I saw a couple of B733ís operating out of MAN yesterday, I thought these were all going to be LBA based?

All seven -300s were in Leeds yesterday, May 18th, of which four were operating and the others on the ground all day. Not sure which ones you saw operating out of MAN?

my mistake I trusted fr24 having looked at the individual aircraft they did a Leeds route at the same time they were showing as doing a MAN route in the MAN departures list

It looks like the Air Tanker A330 G-VYGL has gone tech, down in Dalaman yesterday(LS921). B757 G-LSAE positioned out last night and did the return LS922 over 6 hours late.

According to flightradar24, G-VYGL remains on the ground in Dalaman.

Both B757 G-LSAE & B737 G-DRTW are operating the LS921/LS922 flights today.

G-VYGL went AOG in DLM due to a lightning and there being no A330 engineer in DLM to perform the inspection. As you mentioned, one 757 operated late last night and today's two flights brought the overspill pax from DLM.

G-VYGK will take over the A330 requirement for tomorrow May 22nd (MAN-TFS-MAN).
G-VYGL is expected back in MAN somewhere tomorrow afternoon to resume its duties on Monday.
G-VYGM is expected in MAN on the 25th to start operating alongside GL from the 26th.

Titan's G-ZAPX, currently in service for BA, will start operating for Jet2 from the 26th, based in Stansted (STN-PMI-STN-MAH-STN on its first day).

G-VYGK is still on the ground at MAN and was due to operate to ADB for TUI almost 3 hours ago. Let's hope it isn't delayed much longer or it could have a knock on effect to the replacement flights that it is due to be operating for Jet2 tomorrow.

Summer lease G-VYGM arrived today in MAN from BZZ.

Jet2 seem to be suffering from some hefty delays, had quite a few friends delayed 4+ hours. Seems to be particularly bad at BHX/MAN. Is it just down to staffing issues like easyJet/BA?

Potentially. However, significant ATC slot delays across a swathe of destinations isnít helping matters. If youíve got many crews getting back late across a range of bases, you eventually run out of people who are in hours and need to delay flights for minimum rest.
What sets Jet2 apart from the rest is that they will get people on their holiday rather than cancel flights. Cancellation is really the very last resort. Iím sure customers would prefer to arrive late than not at all.

Thanks for reply! Not heard about these ATC slot delays. Any particular airports being worst affected? Nice to see so many flights back on the boards if nothing else

I had a 4hr ATC delay in CFU on 20th May, allegedly due weather in the euro-control zone, but because it started out as a 2hr delay and then slipped to 4, I suspect it was a euro-control FUBAR helped along by the weather.
It's chaos out there and this summer is going to be total carnage.

As one does, I took a look at Flightradar at around 0130 this morning. I was aghast to see EXS flights only just emerging out of Malaga, Alicante and Turkey with ETAs back in the UK well after 0400; in fact one, an A330 was 0545 - can't recall where it was coming from. Also, I noticed an inbound to the Canaries at 0130, too. Pity crewing but more so the crews.

Question; possibly a silly one, but have any of the Jet2 fleet been known to switch from Jet2.com livery to Jet2 Holidays livery or vice versa, or do they stay in the livery they're allocated?

I'm fairly certain they stay with their original livery, whatever that may be, for the whole of their Jet2 career. So far anyway. There was a plan a few years ago for one of the Air Tanker A330s to receive the Holidays livery but then Covid came along and put paid to the idea.

CO,

I think there are a couple of 757 examples that moved from red tail to holidays. A search on AE shows that in both schemes.

I think these are the exception though and could be because Ďholidaysí was introduced after the 757s arrived and they wanted to get more aircraft in the new scheme?

I canít think of this happening on any of the 737s.
