Post on a Jet2 FB page about passengers being informed that World2Fly will be operating their flight from MAN so looks like that will be the 3rd A330.

Only initially itíll be the World2Fly A333, to be replaced by Wamos A330-200 from June onwards as the third frame, along with the 2x AirTanker.

Happy 20th Birthday to jet2 and all personnel involved from the start. 80 to 12000 staff is an achievement to be proud of.

not sure it is - otherwise why would they be having their cabin crew trained to operate on the world2fly.

there was a rumour of Wamos returning as a 4th a330 but I donít believe that is happening this year.

And on this anniversary, it looks like Jet2Holidays have knocked TUI(UK) off its top spot as the UKís largest tour operator !

Nor sure they are having their own crew training on it, but are having a couple of "extra" Jet2 cabin crew onboard for customer service purposes.

The aircraft will be crewed by World2fly cabin crew as it's only operating May-June when it gets replaced by a Wamos frame for the rest of the season..

I stand corrected and will inform the Jet2 cabin crew member who told me that she really needs to pay more attention to internal memos.....

It's going to be interesting when they send an A330 into LBA after the terminal extension is built in 2 years time..summer 2025.

Any suggestion that dropping 330s into LBA is on the cards?

I reckon widebodies will be seen at STN or BHX before we see them at LBA.

If youíre thinking of what I think youíre thinking of, it was actually British Airtours G-BBAI on 27/5/1985!

Ah, so someone can post comments with no validation, no source and no justification to back them up, but when they are challenged these points are suddenly required. Much like the ďCape Verde for Summer 23Ē claims.

1. I work there.
2. My job means I know
3. I deal with it every day

If that is not sufficient then tough.

Said poster later explains internal memo from Crew. Meanwhile Mr.Blunt over cannot back it up unless challenged.

You work where Manchester airport for Jet2? Your aware that things do change behind the scenes at pace and whilst you've been told one thing by the end of the week it could quite well be another.

I don't think Cape Verde claims were daft and actually have legs given the A321NEO's are coming and they have upwards of 140 aircraft on order coupled with nearly 40 new 737-800NG's. Yes for Summer 23 they are stupid, they wouldn't sell. But to put on Sale for the coming winter - it could quite well work. Newark may be back next Winter too ... who knows. Stranger things have happened.

You never know what the company are up to unless you're the MD or a director or sit within the planning team.

The problem with Cape Verde is that it's just a bit too far away. Operating an A321 there would require a night stop. That massively increases costs. As some have already mentioned, TUI operate the Cape Verde with a night stop for crew on the 737 MAX. The Dreamliner is a little faster and can do it there and back in a day but crew duty is still tight.

If we look at Maderia yesterday for example, eight Jet2 flights were scheduled. All of them diverted due to the weather there. At least half of those were forced to night stop as the crews were running out of duty. Madieria is approximately 2-2.5 hours closer to home than Cape Verde.

A divert reduces hours the allowed hours on duty due to adding a further flight into their duty. Therefore available hours to play with decreases. Some may have not wanted to depart till a more favourable weather window at FNC which would have put them completely out of the duty hours.

We all know Jet2 are astute and therefore Cape Verde, should they want to look at it, would be assessed suitably. The only other option is to have the crew fly as passengers one way and swap with the crew that took the aircraft out. Long ol' day for both but if it legally works then it works. Reduces cost.
