The future performance issue that should be worrying shareholders in any business selling expensive products to the UK public at present is the mushrooming cost of living crisis, sooner or later the customer's credit cards will be maxed out and foreign holidays and weekend breaks could become unaffordable for many.
I can assure you that institutional investors are not "city gamblers". There are reams of research on the largest quoted companies, and a great deal of detailed analysis is behind the decisions made by professional investors.
Something often missed by outsiders is the influence the man at the top can exercise. It is he (or she) who will determine the culture of the organisation, its priorities, and ultimately its success or failure. A competent deputy is not always a good leader, and often a new appointee will want to make his mark - usually by changing something. Traders are right to be nervous about the departure after a long period of a successful principal.
I have the greatest respect for Jet2, and hope it continues to prosper under its new leadership

I think you'll find that Steve Heapy has been leading the company from an operational perspective for some time. Philip did exert some influence on the company in terms of its guiding values, however I feel that the company as a whole has bought into these and engender them from day to day. It will be interesting to see what Philips replacement will look like. Hopefully they'll come in, observe and then make changes, rather than storming in with massive change from the outset. It would be foolish (in my opinion) to drastically alter what is a successful operation. The Executive leadership need to be looking to the medium/long term future and how that looks, rather than messing around with the present and short-term.

And SUNC appears to be actively flying following its recent delivery, but not in its full paint scheme.

I think the same happened when some of the new build 738s were delivered in the busy season.

Looks good in all white plus blue tail..
Just minus tail Sunrise and Jet2 logos. Still unmistakably Jet2

This is the one delivered direct to Manchester 27 Jun and then entered service 05 Jul

Maybe no time slot at EMA (Or elsewhere) for the application of decals. Whatever, I'm sure, being a brand new a/c, Jet2 will want this done as soon as operational constraints allow.

Others in a more prominent position may be able to advise?

As soon as an airframe is allocated a test registration you can check the flights on FR24 and then it will be about 10 days before delivery

its only got the "Package Holidays you can trust banner" right now, almost certainly due to time constraints and needing to get it on the line.
They've put it in the right place this time, on SUNB they moved the banner shortly after it was delivered, as it was too far back and looked odd!

with the launch of more Twilight Check-Ins at other UK airports, am I missing the attraction? So you need to travel to the airport for a second trip (finding and paying for parking) then lug over luggage and then go home again only to repeat it at eg 6am the next morning in order to avoid a check in queue? Suppose might be beneficial if you were overnighting in an onsite airport hotel.
