Does it actually equate to extra seats flown or rather extra package holiday seats sold? So more seats have been designated to the package holiday side of the operation rather than flight only. Not meaning to start that argument up again though 😴

I doubt there will be any significant expeansion at MAN this Summer. Due to the second pier construction beginning, there will be fewer stands available than last year. No more aircraft means larger aircraft required for seat expansion. But they already have 3xA330, all 8x757s and A321s; i.e. all the large aircraft that Jet2 operate. Never say never, but I think it unlikely.

Yes, sorry, autofill. Slovakia, Lativa, Moldova, Lithuania.

More 737-800s

I see they are getting a load more 800s. Will this finally mean they will get rid of the 300s and 757s? Bit odd to have these tired old sub fleets when 800s must be easy to get hold off nowadays.

I think it's six more 738's. And it's the tired old "paid for" sub fleets....

replacing the 757 with 738s would cause a big problem at moment as they are used for most of Canary Islands flights ex MAN due to not enough A321neo deliveries this summer.

Don't see how 6 x 738's can replace the capacity of 7 x 733s and 8 x 757s.

Could at least get rid of 733s. Canít think of another airline in Europe still using those. Paid off or not itís not really acceptable flying those still in 2023. The 757 is a great plane but they must be operating the oldest ones still in commercial service outside freighters. Again not really acceptable is it.

What a load of twaddle. The interiors of the aircraft have been upgraded and kept in good condition and if theyíre operating reliably, there is no reason to wish them away to the scrap yard.

Several BA 777-200s and the TUI 767s are older than many of the Jet2 737-300s but you donít hear the same nonsense about pensioning off a raft of BA 777s.

Acceptable to who?

The public donít notice and donít care unless theyíre so unreliable and disruptive which theyíre not. Inside, which the public do notice, is pristine.

To aviation nerds? I suspect most like variety.

To Jet2? Clearly they are as they keep using them.

To the industry? Well Jet2 repeatedly keep winning awards as Ďthe bestí, including winning the top Which award yesterday.

So, can you let us know which interested parties this is unacceptable to as I am struggling to think of any.

I too am struggling to understand why a properly maintained older airframe needs to be retired if it continues to provide reliable service to customers, and just as importantly contributes positively to the company bottom line.

The obvious downside is the fuel efficiency of order generation technology but clearly Jet2 management know better than posters on an Internet forum!

Again the whole fleet is based at one station so maintenance is easier and have proved a very good aircraft from smaller/higher/cross wind runways i:e Leeds

BA's oldest B777 is now 26 years old and their oldest A319 is now 23 years, which is high for that ilk. Both BA and LS have good in house Engineering, it's all about the TLC and consistency of care. Even Ryanair have 19 year old B73Hs and easyJet have 18 year old A319s.
