Was it initially over max landing weight? If you got to burn 90mins worth of fuel might as well go towards a better divert. Remember These Neo engines presumably are etops approved to 180mins! although likely jet2 wouldn’t have paid for that piece of paper.

Runway in use at BJV was 10L - the MISAP is toward high and scary high ground - fully laden aircraft on one engine trying to do a missed approach isn’t wise.

A great team effort. Well done all.

LS931

Today's LS931 to Malta has been cancelled, any particular reason for this as Jet2 don't tend to cancel that many flights?

Unfortunately not, I'm in Malta at the moment and due home on Sunday so was curious as to what was happening with there only being 3 flights a week from here to Manchester and I'm sure they won't fit 2 flights worth of passengers on one aircraft on Thursday

Wouldn’t be surprised to Jet2 in Gatwick soon, one way or another.

discussions elsewhere regarding Jet2 buying BAs European operation at Gatwick, while rumours are also circulating that EZY are to reduce their Gatwick base by a dozen aircraft and return leases slots to B who will surely want a new airline to occupy these and keep them valid.

The rumour is based on this post: BA and JET2 secret meeting in Leeds)

Isn't it more likely that BA are looking to sell/lease LGW slots to LS that EZY are apparently no longer wanting?

Exactly that. That single "news article" smells of nothing but amateurish journalism. Something almost made up to try and get attention. Honestly find it appalling and quite laughable really. They have obviously found a 2 and a 2 and tried to make a 5....

I think it more likely-but still not likely ! BA has spare LGW slots they don’t use or currently rent out to EasyJet that they MAY be discussing…. Jet 2 did operate last winter from Gatwick for a cruise line

....which was P&O, as I was on one of them to TFS in March. It was the last of the winter series operated from LGW.

Suspect they may be trying to get it out of AYT for further investigation elsewhere.

What a poorly worded article by the aptly named Simple Flying. ‘Do you think the pilots handled the situation well (after implying that they just hung around circling Bodrum for 40 minutes before finally diverting to AYT) - comment in the section below’. Luckily nobody appears to have bothered commenting.

As for buying an entire airline just to acquire slots at an airport, along with the suggestion that parts of HQ were cordoned off and ‘trust me cos a skipper said it’s true’ I’m calling BS on that for now, unless they are purely acquiring slots that have been leased to Easyjet as mentioned previously which would allow for a based operation. They do currently operate out of Gatwick in Winter but this is to service charter contracts whilst the Jet2 program are quiet and LGW isn’t so slot constrained.

A Cavok AN12 left BHX bound for AYT today apparently carrying an engine.

2+2 = 4, or perhaps 5?

it’s only done just over a thousand hours, so I would imagine so. Depends what’s happened to it.

Robin Terrell will succeed Jet2 plc founder and former executive char Philip Meeson, the airline and operator has confirmed.Meeson announced his intention to step down as executive chair in July; his remaining executive responsibilities have now been fully handed over to senior independent non-executive director Terrell, who has been appointed non-executive chair. The Jet2 board said practical experience of the business and its culture, plus strong relationships with the senior management team, were key criteria for any appointment to ensure continuity of culture and strategy.

G-SUNB is finally on its way back to Manchester after two weeks in Antalya, presumably with a new engine.
