I wondered that too having spotted it ex Malta 2 hours late after an on time(ish) arrival.
Maybe an aircraft passenger seating capacity thing on a not so common destination needing 757s extra seats and G-LSAK being a spare atm?

When there is a random chance of 1 in 9 afternoon destinations, most usually the lengthier sectors, why one aircraft on one route? Pretty much all are new build so in theory the same, all are back home by 2-3 am the next morning so one nightís arrival shouldnít determine the next dayís plan.

The stats seem to suggest this isnít random but I canít think of a rational explanation?
G-JZBD is one of a few able to go down the T16/T13 Tango Routes to the canarys i believe which is why its assigned to TFS.

Well that is interestingÖ.it would make sense though I wonder why only specific aircraft in the fleet can do this?

Itís to do with the oceanic airspace requirements in terms of radios. Any aircraft operating in that airspace must have a certain type of radio/software installed for comms and position reports, and not all of the Boeing fleet have it. Someone else might be able to explain it better than me.

In early 2021, ICAO mandated that all flights operating at higher levels within NAT-HLA airspace must have a CPDLC and surveillance capability. The only exception to this were routes defined as Special Routes such as Tango 9 and Tango 290.

NAT-HLA airspace requires technology know as FANS (Future Air Navigation System). Unsurprisingly the 737 isn't equipped with this kind of hardware/software by default. Jet2 has been working with a supplier to develop the required hardware/software and it will eventually be fitted to approximately 60 737s.

Until last year we flew BHX - FUE on LS1229 several times. Aircraft always a 737 but now they're trying the odd A321 out of BHX, who knows
Afternoon dep gets you into FUE too late for hitel restsurant so take Butties. Lol.
First time (2017) it seemed to us that the coaches wsited until the other JET2 FUE had decanted before doing the hotel rounds so thereafter we booked a Jet2 taxi. So much easier - and a darned sight quicker if Corralejo bound.

40 rows would be an A321-251NX (A321NEO).

Did this happen?

From what I can see the Naples passengers are still stuck along with lots of PMI holidaymakers.

G-DRTM jusr arrived in Italy c12.10 UK time.
G-LSAC seems to be on some sort of IBZ + PMI run. Can't figure it out from FR24

A lot of disruption caused by Baleric weather yesterday, now NATS has fallen over and large delays into/out of UK airspace.

Quite a few (valid) questions on there regarding why it flew for 90 minutes on one engine? It was right overhead Bodrum yet decided to divert to Antalya. On one engine?
