Hi


I understand that Jet2 have acquired a 2nd ex Norwegian Air Shuttle Boeing 737-3Y5, LN-KKC to be registered G-GDFH. She was built in 1993 and brand new to Air Malta.

BasilFawlty 29th Jan 2012 20:18

Yes, it's in BEG now for maintenance.

Also G-GDFB has been painted in Jet2 Holidays c/s and G-GDFG has been painted in normal full c/s.

MAN-SZG
 
Is it usual for the above flight on a Saturday (LS933) to have two separate flights sharing the same code? MAN website shows one flight dep. at 10.35 and another dep. at 13.00.

Is it just an extra flight they have put on to satisfy demand?

I have to drop the in-laws off and just want to check they have given me the right time ;)

Thanks

lsflyer - I believe it was a charter for an oil company. (well, thats the cabin crew said :})

Does anybody idea what LS6276 is? It's departing NCL at 14.30 and arriving back at 15:00.

Is it a training flight or a NCL board error?

VentureGo 5th Feb 2012 14:22

It departed at 1504, then landed at 1520.!! source: Flightradar.

'Flying without fear' flight. Jet2 seem to provide a lot of these flights for Virgin

JKKne 5th Feb 2012 18:27

I can't see 16 minutes being enough to conquer a fear of flying...

Mr @ Spotty M 5th Feb 2012 19:39

16 minutes is plenty.
What l have seen on TV about flights like this, is panic when the doors close or during take-off and landing.

righthandrule 5th Feb 2012 19:59

The whole point of the fear of flying courses are to successfully get people on the aircraft. Virgin run these courses in conjunction with Jet2 frequently and are always a huge success. The flight itself only last between 10-20 minutes. The aim is not to climb to 35,000 and cruise around for three hours. It is simply to get the door shut and the aircraft into the air.

All Jet2 charter flights have flight numbers LS2xxx or LS6xxx. The LS2xxx are charters that run on a frequent basis and the LS6xxx are the one off charters such as fear of flying or lapland trips. In response to 'up up and away's' post, are you sure it was not the LS2111 flight to Salzburg which runs on saturday afternoon for TUI?

There are some very interesting charters coming over the next few months, however I think the crew will agree that last weeks Brazil trip will take some beating!

VentureGo 5th Feb 2012 21:19

Actually landed at 15:18 so only lasted 14 mins! --LS6xxx, Guess it Was "Fear of Flying" Course. These are duration of One full day, with refreshments and guest speakers from Virgin culminating in Flight. Cost approx. 250 per day: Virgin Atlantic helps with your Fear of Flying

Sorry guys I can't resist .....

Jet2 ... geriatric aircraft ... perhaps these courses are designed to induce a 'Fear of Flying'

Only joking honest.

edi_local 5th Feb 2012 22:35

Spoken to a few people involved with these courses and apparently a lot of the people often only get as far as the gate and don't actually end up getting on the plane.

Seems like a lot of money to throw at something and then not go through with it in the end. If being surrounded by hundreds of other passengers in the airport who are just getting on with their flight as well as being reassured by professional and experienced staff still doesn't convince you then perhaps flying just isn't for you...

I remember a few years ago Dispatching a Fear of flying flight operated by Jet2 on behalf of BA from MAN. As all the passengers boarded, the plane went Tech requiring disembarkation and re boarding the serviceable aircraft on the next stand. Needless to say, not as many re boarded the other aircraft !! :E

Surely that could have been dressed up as part of the course? :p

Write it off as saying it's just showing them how to cope with a technical fault, or a delay or say it's a chance for them to see a different aircraft type. :}

The one thing you should never do is lie!!!! You don't have to go into all the details but lying will only make matters worse in the long run. Could you imagine if passengers found out? It'd spread like mad and be a PR disaster. There are some professions renowned for lying (laweys, estate agents et al) , thankfully pilots don't have that reputation - although it's been known on occasions, when they're off duty and at a bar!

In response to 'up up and away's' post, are you sure it was not the LS2111 flight to Salzburg which runs on saturday afternoon for TUI?

I don't think so, I got this direct from the MAN website:

Flight Times from Manchester Airport to Salzburg, W. A. Mozart Airport
Book Now
Days
Dep. Arr. Airline(s) Flight
Number Validity M T W T F S S
10:35 (T1) 13:45 Jet2 LS933 04/02/12 - 03/03/12
13:00 (T1) 16:10 Jet2 LS933 11/02/12 - 18/02/12

Lsflyer 8th Feb 2012 09:59

There isn't 2 flights with the same number on that day. The schedule changes from the 11th onwards so the ls933 departs at 1 instead of 10.35 and changes to the 757. The way Manchester airport website has put it makes it look as though there are 2 but there's only one low cost one and one charter. Besides your parents will have the correct info on their tickets so go with what that says!
