757 fleet this summer will operate as follows.

5x LBA (4x in operation +1 spare back up)
6x MAN (4x in operation +2 spare back up)

Interesting fact: It was 12 years ago today, on 12th February, 2003, that Jet2 made its inaugural flight - from LBA to AMS.

Today, Jet2 filled a baggage belt full of surprise prizes for each of the passengers travelling back from ALC - LBA, as part of their 'Random acts of kindness' week. Good on Jet2! You tend not to see things like this any more with the airlines' attempts to cut out everything except the flight :ok:

Nice one Jet2! Those passengers will be flying again!

Can't believe NCL loses it's 757's to go and sit idle at MAN and LBA.

Nothing to do with the WestJet Christmas Miracle of 2012 then...

There's nothing like copying another's success, but somehow I don't think this one will be going viral.

757 jet2
 
by keeping the 757 in 2 bases, they must think more money from the 2 bases,rather than spread around here there and every where. it makes sense as if any problems then they have a spare, rather than looking around for another aircraft to cover. the 737 aircraft is not a problem if one goes tech, as lots of them around to cover.

Ian Brooks 13th Feb 2015 11:24

Yes the less your fleet is spread around the cheaper to operate
less spares required ,crew bases are kept to a minimum etc etc
The 757 are not getting any younger and now tend to need a bit more
TLC and with the two bases only a stones throw apart it must make life a
lot easier

Titan made an unexpected return on the Belfast mail-runs last night. I'm sure they charged their contract rivals a pretty coin for that substitution.

Looks like one of the Belfast QCs ( CELX? ) has gone over to the mainland, presumably to substitute for GDFE?

Titans return was expected - I believe they are operating it now in place of the EXT route which I think has now ceased. Jet2 & Titan were not competitors on the mail routes as they formed a joint company to run the routes a number of years back.
On the 757s - maybe having 2 spare in Manchester is a useful support if things go awry with the A330 this summer..... (slight overkill in seat numbers but if the 738's are leased it's probably cheaper to have the 752s sat on standby.)

El Bunto 14th Feb 2015 10:37

Interesting, thank you. I had thought the mail contracts had been awarded to the individual companies this year rather than to PAN but wrong as ever!

commit aviation 14th Feb 2015 11:20

I don't know whether the new contracts are with specific airlines (you could be right) but this swap has been planned for some time. The slots were held by J2 until this weekend & with Titan for the rest of the winter season.
Not all contracts are reviewed at the same time I believe so it could be a bit of a mixed bag at the moment!

EK77WNCL 15th Feb 2015 01:36

LBIA, et al does anyone know what the base situation is with the 738's and 733's? Numbers at bases and numbers on standby and where etc.

Thanks in advance :)

flyby1 15th Feb 2015 07:23

Rumour the a330 is not happening now. Not sure how true or not.

Lighty89 17th Feb 2015 15:19

Will privilege be making a return this year??

Prestonian 17th Feb 2015 17:16

Manchester 1 post #914 states A330 deal has collapsed.

flyby1 17th Feb 2015 18:36

The a330 has been withdrawn. Privilege will be in to cover the short fall now the a330 is not happening.

EK77WNCL 17th Feb 2015 22:04

Anybody know why the A330 fell through?

D7 want it back?
Jet2 couldn't fill it?
Some kind of authority get in the way?

kieb92 18th Feb 2015 10:38

I'm presuming with the A330 lease not happening, several destinations will have an increased schedule? A lot of capacity lost.

Mr Mac 18th Feb 2015 11:53

Back on an old Boeing in June then for me down to Palma and back, with No Business class seats either.


Regards
Mr Mac

According to another forum, the CAA put a block on it.
Wonder why?
Is it due to aircraft maintenance or perhaps the lost aircraft incident with Air Asia?

EK77WNCL 18th Feb 2015 15:39

I had a feeling it would have something to do with an authority problem.

I hope it's not to do with the Indonesian incident, considering it's not the same aircraft, operator, country - or even the Air Asia group's fault (yet - although I'm sure it's not at all)

Shame, better luck next year... Or why don't they look to someone like Hifly or Euro Atlantic to provide an aircraft for the summer?
