you'd think GLA/EDI as furthest north would have exclusively newest most fuel efficient and all scimitar (or A321neos) Ö but yet noÖ at least no 733ís!

A321neos are due at EDI for summer '25, until then it's the 737-800, until the SSWs have been fitted to the majority of the fleet it will be a mix as always. 737-300s fly out of LBA normally apart from charter/extra capacity operations (6 nations rugby in Rome).

Does not make a major difference. The 321s are better placed at MAN/BHX, where demand is generally higher.

For now, but as deliveries ramp up would expect more bases to convert. Next year and 2026 will be the years it starts IMO.

I agree. As far as I can make out, Jet2 have 4 A21N's due this year which can be accounted for, and were announced. The last being msn 12127

The next is msn 12295, implies to me 2025. (Others more knowledgeable in airbus production rates may be able to correct me).

As an aside, given the registration sequence for forthcoming deliveries, G-SUNN will not be utilised as it is currently a Robinson R44 helicopter. (I haven't gone any further - life's too short)

Ageed. The current A321Ns are filling the gap left by departing 757s and the lack of a 3rd A330 at MAN. Until there are significantly more A321N deliveries they won't be spread out across the bases, no point in having 1 in each base due to crewing and rostering issues.. 6 A321N are due this Jet2 FY - 2 delivered so far.

Well the people who matter in the business obviously donít see operating Rwanda flights as an issue at all, considering Michael OíLeary has come out and said heís more than happy to use his aircraft. Maybe people can stop wetting the bed now.

To be fair to the man, he excels at hostility, here's a personal favorite 'The airline industry is full of bull****ters, liars and drunks. We excel at all three in Ireland.'

Not quite, The first NEOs are to join at EDI from November 1st 2024. EDI will be a mixed base of B738 and A21N, until then the sixth aircraft will be a B738.

Jet2s Boeings are actually very reliable compared to some of their new NEOs which has had some issues after delivery.

Precisely. Any aircraft will be reliable with Jet2s excellent in house maintenance.


Quite ironic as well that info elsewhere suggests G-SUNG isnít a problem aircraft at all, and has instead been delayed by a lack of hangar space due to the 2nd hand Boeingsí service entry maintenance taking longer than expected.

GK here for a few weeks whilst GL has maintenance and then itís back again in June when GL has further planned maintenance.

AK went to rescue a flight last night and has now stayed in LBA for the day to pick up another flight before positioning back to MAN later.
