a321 neo

We have booked a week away next April to Fuerteventura with Jet2 and the seat plan shows an aircraft with 40 rows so would think this could be a 321 neo

What will happen to the CEO’s then? Will they stay at BHX, or with neos arriving could the neo’s replace them and the CEO’s add capacity at other bases until more NEO’s come, I’m mainly thinking STN or NCL

Airbus to be at MAN and BHX for 24, expanding to EDI for 25. They will be based as capacity requirement dictate.

Will that be a mix of NEO and CEO at both or will the 3 CEO’s remain at one of the two bases?

The NEOs seat 232 passengers where as the CEOs seat 220 passengers. When more A321NEOs are delivered, I can see the CEOs being disposed of as they are a bit of an oddball in the fleet.

G-GDFT STATUS?

Looks like G-GDFT 737-300 hadn't turned a wherl since August.
Is it destined for beer can factory, overwinter storage, or on a Check?
At c25 years old its not as ancient as some of what are becoming 'heritage' airframes.

I'd expect that if there are enough A321neo (and other frames i.e. 738/320neo) at the time of lease expiry they will be let go.....as you say a sub-fleet of 3 isn't optimal

733's will keep flying until no longer economically viable and suitable alternative frames are available...some of 752's have 10 years on this one so expect it to be around for a few years yet.

Looks like Jet2 is increasing their lead over TUI in the UK.

According to Wikipedia TUI UK have 71 aircraft vs Jet2 with 102 so hardly surprising but remember TUI as a Group is far larger. They have been held back by Max, still don't known when the Max10s will arrive which should have replaced 757s on trunk routes.

Ask who Jet2 are to a German, Dutch or Belgium customer and they will say Jet who?

Thanks to Brexit it is probably less likely Germans, Dutch or Belgians will ever become familiar with the Jet2 brand, even though the name Jet2 would be quite usable in all those countries.

Their best route into the EU would of course be an Irish operation, with an Dublin based fleet on the EI register. Then the could buy smaller independent tour operators on the European mainland and service them using the EI fleet.

Would it happen? Unlikely in the short term, but medium term who knows.

Doubt they’d be interested in venturing outside of the U.K. they’re confident there’s plenty more growth to be had here. Perhaps when that’s exhausted.. That said, they seem to have tapped into a very British market and exploited that all-in-one holiday booking and customer focus that got lost in the low-cost era. They have done exceptionally well at this.

No, they will probably say "Ah yes, that holiday organisation we saw being checked in at Palma or Tenerife, with uniformed staff out managing the families, chatting to the kids, and multiple desks open, while we were all in a single tedious queue as our handling agent had been beaten down to minimum price.

Anyone have an idea of ongoing recruitment at the moment, how long can you expect to hear back from an application or is recruitment on hold now until just before spring?
