Looks like LS1465 (STN to Antalya) got to the south east coast, did a few circuits, and then unusually diverted to Manchester (rather than the originating STN). It was met by full emergency services on arrival. Aircraft appears to G-DRTL.

Maybe MAN has maintenance that STN hasn't although STN was of course a lot closer for Emergency. Any more info?

Availabilty of a replacement a/c probably behind going to MAN?

Passengers will be transferred onto a standby aircraft, the Jet2 spokesperson added. A statement issued by the airline said: "A Flight LS1465 from London Stansted to Antalya followed procedure and diverted to Manchester Airport this morning, due to a minor fault indication.

"The aircraft landed safely, and customers will be transferred onto a standby aircraft so that we can get them on their way to Antalya as soon as possible. We apologise to everyone onboard for any inconvenience caused."

Will the neo’s be in a mixture of the grey/red and the holidays liveries or will they be all holidays like the A321’s? I think I’m right in saying we’ve yet to see an airbus a/c in the grey/red.

The third of the 2nd hand B737-800's due to Jet2 this year, landed in Manchester this morning at 10:25.

G-JZBX (ex Sunwing C-FLSW) left GYR yesterday afternoon.

It was a problem with flaps.

Anyone know what Jet2 are due to operate on MAN-FUE in June? I’m really hoping to catch a 757 but I know the probability is getting less and less.

we fly 4th June and come back 14th if that helps

Planned for a 752 on the 4th and 738 on the 14th, for now.

thanks, I know from MAN particularly it could be any of a 738, 757, A321 or even A21N this summer, and It’s pretty fluid as to what flies to where and when

Is there a public way to find things like this out or is it inside info? I know Google Flights is fairly reliable but if the flights are for ‘holidays’ only, they won’t appear.

You can tell from the seat plan when booking your seats. You don’t have to actually book a seat, just go and amend your booking. 42 rows = 752; 33 rows = 738; 37/38 = A321; A330 = obvious with two aisles..

Use Seat Gurus website if you want to see the layouts. That’s what I do anyway, I’m sure there’s a few ways to tell.

LS910 FUE-MAN

Currently sat on the tarmac still on G-LSAE in Fuerteventura, inbound flight LS909 left 1-hr late and made up half of that. Then a passenger asks the cabin crew as they sit down if they’re ok to fly because they don’t feel well, but feel alright….

​​​​​​….currently waiting for 221 bags to be on and off loaded, 40-mins in so far 🤦🏻‍♂️ the crew had to do an ID check on all the cabin baggage for half the plane too..”who’s is this bag etc.”

I suppose it’s better than having to divert on route though! 😂

According to Jethro's today, a further three 2nd hand B737-800's are due to Jet2 this year.

All three are currently at Shannon, are ex Flyr, and are all around the 9.5-10 year old.

G-JZDA - ex LN-FGA
G-JZDB - ex LN-FGC
G-JZDC - ex LN-FGB

Quite a few 2nd hand additions to the fleet this year.

They are really ramping up the fleet. Wonder if this is all growth or whether we will see some retirements soon?

It's all very interesting. It would appear (so far) that Jet2 might be looking at a dual 737/A2*N fleet in the longer term.

Obviously there will be the retirements of the 733's and 752's as well as older 738's one would assume. There are 24 738's over 20 years of age and another 12 in their late teens. On a very base level, without looking at individual cycles, hours, ownership, airframe defects, major checks etc. etc. etc. that's 51 aircraft that would look to be in the firing line by the end of the decade. I reckon we'll see a number of these 738's hit their 30's in service with Jet2.

Will we see Jet2 buying up second hand A320 and A321ceo's down the line? Are we going to see the fleet increase to 150-200 as we approach 2030? I'd say that would be almost inevitable if a reasonable amount of Gatwick slots are sourced.

I do believe the future looks bright for the plucky little northerners.
