Boeing 737-300, G-GDFH is still to be delivered and is believed to be in Belgrade receving treatment. The recently acquired Boeing 757-200WL, G-LSAN is still down at Southend having some pre-delivery work done.

Meanwhile Boeing 737-300QC departed Leeds-Bradford last week to Budapest and it seems to not have moved since.

an A320 wet leased from Strategic for summer 2012 and based, I think. in MAN
Yep its based at MAN but i see that they are using two of the Strategic aircraft but swap them between each other.

MUFC_fan 15th Jun 2012 13:28

Does anyone know if Jet2 are actually BUYING these aircraft outright from their own pocket or are they funding it through loans?

To be able to buy and obviously maintain that whole fleet (which has duly expanded quite quickly in recent years) must mean some money in the company!

I just wonder as surely the cost differences between buying (through loans) as opposed to leasing more fuel efficient aircraft when those bought would probably end their operating lives with LS, can't be that much different?

I maybe wrong!

LVL_CHG 15th Jun 2012 13:40

I can confirm that at a recent Jet2 presentation they said that all their a/c are owned outright and not leased.

TSR2 15th Jun 2012 14:59


all their a/c are owned outright and not leased.
Not according to the CAA.

All 36 aircraft registered to Dart Group are owned outright.

The 8 aircraft (1xB733, 4xB738 and 3xB757) registered to Jet2 are leased.

righthandrule 15th Jun 2012 17:37

Yes a few are 'leased' but from whom you may be asking? A few are leased from leasing companies but some are 'leased' to 'Jet2.com' from 'Dart Group'. Who owns 'Jet2.com' you may also be asking? 'Dart Group' is the answer. Its not as simple as Jet2 forking out a few mil for each aircraft. On paper assets are quite small for 'Jet2.com' but other parts of the business have considerable assets for a holding company. :ok:

G-LSAL and G-LSAM are two B752s leased from Air Allegiant, which will be going back to Air Allegiant at the end of the summer 2012.

The question is whether these will be replaced by B752s or B738s.

CabinCrewe 15th Jun 2012 19:26

The GLA base seems to be going from strength to strength with now 3 aircraft based within a short period of time. Wonder what will be next for this base? Announcements for W13?

ematom1 22nd Jun 2012 15:14

Hi all, just wondering why the leeds flight to ibbiza this afternoon arrives in east midlands then departs to ibiza, same happend last friday to, the ibiza route from ema doesnt start till may 13??

LBIA 22nd Jun 2012 18:12

Jet2 and most other airlines are having serious problems up at LBA with weather issues this afternoon. Reports of up to 42knot cross-wind. Also wind-sheer been reported by several aircraft on finals to runway 32.
The Boeing 737-300 aircraft are having to take-off with lighter than required fuel loads hence both the LS227 service to Palma and the LS197 to Ibiza have had to call into EMA for a splash and dash.

TopazBlue 22nd Jun 2012 20:51

Flew in from Fuerteventura this afternoon and the landing was the worst I have ever experienced in 35 years flying into Leeds. So glad the flight was not diverted due to the weather.

Probably should've done!

MKY661 23rd Jun 2012 15:14

Jet2 have aquired another 737-300 today from Brussels Airlines. And it has winglets

LBIA 23rd Jun 2012 18:50

Yep you are correct MKY661 as it's already in Southend, ex Brussels Airlines Boeing 737-300-WL, OO-VEG which will become G-GDFL.

harer92 23rd Jun 2012 18:52

Why have they purchased on odd-one-out aircraft so to speak as it will be the only 733 with winglets will it not? Unless they are testing out the economic viability of adding winglets to their existing 733 fleet of aircraft?

BHD2BFS 23rd Jun 2012 19:25

Continental airlines had quite a few -300s with winglets but got ride of them, mustn't be that economical

Lsflyer 24th Jun 2012 11:40

Does anyone know where the new 73W will be based and whether it is leased or owned?

TSR2 24th Jun 2012 11:49

According to the CAA, G-GDFL is owned.

spider_man 24th Jun 2012 14:39

I thought J2 had just acquired 5 x 733s with winglets. This would be in addition to the 44 a/c already flying.

BHD2BFS 24th Jun 2012 15:42

Do jet2 have no plans for any expansion at Belfast? They just seem to add a route and drop a route each year
Also on a different note, since they have 757s would they never try Sanford?

JSCL 24th Jun 2012 15:57

I don't think the 757's would make a leg to Sandford... I could be wrong. TATL to Boston, New York, Chicago and Atlanta is well and good but going down to Florida is adding an extra ~1000km if not more, I don't think there's enough give for that.

TSR2 24th Jun 2012 16:36


I don't think the 757's would make a leg to Sandford
It would with a re-fueling stop in Bangor ;)

Lsflyer 24th Jun 2012 16:42

Yes but wouldn't refuelling in Bangor be going back in time 10 years? At the end of the day why fly jet2 to Florida on a 757 that's made for short haul when you can fly direct with Thomson or Thomas cook? It wouldn't make sense to me!

TSR2 24th Jun 2012 18:20

Yes I agree but remember that an awful lot of people go to Orlando via Chicago, New York or Atlanta, so one short re-fueling stop may have some merit particularly if the price is right.

BHD2BFS 24th Jun 2012 18:22

Flyglobespan did the same when they used 737-800 on some of the flights

take-off 24th Jun 2012 22:06

Is there any chance that BLK might get the wingleted 737 for next years dalaman/tenerife runs, would it be of any advantage to them off BLK's short runway?

sam1993 26th Jun 2012 17:11

With the unfortunate failure of Air Finland today, could Jet2 potentially purchase some of their aicraft, especially as the two 757s leased from Allegiant appear to be returning at the end of the summer?

Alex757 26th Jun 2012 18:16

I could see that happening, who knows?

kestrel757 26th Jun 2012 23:18

I always enjoyed a short refuelling stop at BGR. Was a chance to stretch one's legs & for pax there was the benefit of clearing US immigration more easily there, at a time when MCO was notorious for how long it took pax to clear the terminal.

Travel Agent 2nd Jul 2012 07:51

Pula has been showing in the drop down list of destinations from Newcastle for about a week now but it is not bookable, anyone know if this will be announced or is it more likely a mistake?

GrahamK 2nd Jul 2012 08:57

Seems to have been removed now Travel Agent

munrobagger 2nd Jul 2012 15:51

whats up at Edinburgh / Palma today - LS717A as well as 717 ?
Edinburgh base is usually problem free . How old are the 733s here and when will they be replaced ?

GoEDI 2nd Jul 2012 15:58

CELY returned after take off with a flap problem this morning. Those QCs get worked hard in the summer at EDI.

AirGuru 2nd Jul 2012 21:21

Has anyone holidayed with Jet2 Holidays ? If so how was the experience.

CabinCrewe 2nd Jul 2012 21:25

Not sure you'll get the answer you wish on a "professional pilots forum" (if it can really be classed as such now)
Perhaps try here

LBIA 10th Jul 2012 13:37

Looks like Jet2 are to announce another new route from Leeds/Bradford this time to Zante (Zakynthos), Flights are now on sale.

The Service commences from Wednesday, May 22nd 2013 and will be operated by a Boeing 737-300.

LS447 = Leeds 08:35 - Zante 14:30
LS448 = Zante 15:10 Leeds 17:15

BombardierCR7 10th Jul 2012 14:55

Zakynthos from Manchester also.

LGS6753 10th Jul 2012 18:56

How will Jet2 react to Monarch's tanks on their lawn?

AP1995 10th Jul 2012 19:03

The MAN flights are operated by a 737-800 and the LBA flights are operated by a 737-300

Prestonian 11th Jul 2012 09:17

On my recommendation a family group booked with Jet2 from Manchester to Tenerife, out Sat 23 June PM return Sat 30 June late PM.
On arrival at MAN on 23/6 given letter saying their Flight was with Strategic while on 30/6 went to Gate at Tenerife to find flight back on same plane but no letter this time. Are Jet2 using Strategic permanently on this round trip?

I feel let down because they had poor flight experience both ways. The legroom was terrible and they had paid to reserve seats but were put at opposite end of plane to what they wanted on both legs. No offer from Jet2 of return of seat reservation fees.

Also while the outward trip was 2 passengers the return booking was 3. Online checkin system couldn't cope with this and wouldn't print boarding card for the 3rd passenger who was then charged over 20 euros to get boarding card at the desk at Tenerife.

They are not happy with my recommendation!
