Paris Air Show starts tomorrow doesn't it? Wonder if Jet2 announce these new jets they've supposedly bought/buying/leasing this coming week?

Still can't see Jet2 going from Boeing to Airbus.

Artie Fufkin 14th Jun 2015 21:59

The announcement was originally imminent in Februray, then it was Paris, then it was Farnborough, now we're told September. We were told Airbus was a done deal, now we hear Boeing...

Zzzzzzzzz

One particular gnome is reporting an order of 62 A320/21, plus options. Another reporting Jet2 directors spotted talking to Airtanker at Brize Norton, another spotted Boeing executives, another spotted P&W executives.

Zzzzzzzzz

Anyone else heard any good ones? All above are "genuine rumours".

I heard from a reliable source that management were spotted in Ulyanovsk with a view to placing an order for 60 TU204 with 15 options:
40 Tu204 300 to replace the 737 300's and 737 800's
+5 Tu204 300 combi to replace the 737 300 combi
15 Tu 204SM to replace the 757's

It should be firmed at MAKS 2015 in Moscow and production will be ramped up to 5/7 per year to cover Jet2's deliveries and their existing backlog. A spokesperson said "We hope that delivery will begin by Q2 2017 when we will receive our first 3 next generation Tupolev aircraft, around 5 aircraft per year should be delivered thereafter" he went on to say "our final delivery should take place in Q3 2029, coinciding with the retirement of our final 737 800 which will have reached the end of it's viable service life around that time"

Here's hoping, lets see what happens :ok:

Are you mental? Or just taking the p...?

EK77WNCL 15th Jun 2015 23:54

Bit of both I think...

Like it - but I bet your humour will be lost on a few! Must admit I thought that irony was a genre of humour lost on the younger generation. Thanks for disproving me. :ok:

Ha ha! Well done. This is probably gospel on some other forums by now.

Lets just hope that jet2_738 hasn't read it! Could send him over the edge! Bless him.

Last I heard was the A330's are still planned for next summer..? No idea about any fleet replacement, heard rumours but would buying new really be feasible given the seasonal nature of operations?

All Airbus fleet would be nice, but would render the spanking new training facility obsolete.. 😉

I reckon more 738's(possibly some 737's too?) to replace the 733's and perhaps eventually the 752's, with the talked of A330's to soak up some of the higher density routes currently operated by the 752's, and of course the special departures to New York.. The only missing piece in the puzzle would then be the QC replacement..?

Facelookbovvered 16th Jun 2015 22:22

Jet2 recently featured in an analysts report on the seasonal nature of the airline business, Jet2 were listed No 1 world wide for seasonality i.e. the difference between their peak program and low season program, that does not support a significant order, with fuel cheaper than Harrogate spring water i expect the old girls will see a further extension to their service life..

Any reliable source? PPJN were spouting about Airbus only a couple of weeks ago.

EK77WNCL 16th Jun 2015 23:34

Ex EK A332's (Florida/Mexico) and/or ex BA 763's (Sardine can to Magaluf) I'm telling ya Jet2 listen to me!

But I thank you all for your kind words, thought I'd lighten the mood a bit, would be wonderful to see a fleet of Tu204's based in the north of England. It's quite interesting how much of a good fit for 733/752 replacements they are actually, if only it was the Boeing Tu204.

If the glass cockpit thing is true it'll be semi-good news, won't have the same feel in the cockpit but if it keeps the old girls in the air 5-10 more years I'm all for it. I hope all the 757's get done

Just another student 17th Jun 2015 01:30

Glass cockpit upgrades have been on the cards and rumoured for a long time, this IMHO does not change the plans for fleet renewal, the aircraft are just being invested in one last time to make them compliant with EASA regulations. The some -300's and some 757's will see another 6-8 years service.

Remember, it will take time for Boeing or Airbus to deliver aircraft, the existing fleet needs to continue operating during this period. I have no doubt that Jet2 have been in talks with both parties for a long time and will not announce or sign anything, until the deal is 100% in the best long term interests of the airline.

More -800's, for sure, they will keep expanding in a cautious way, as they have done over the last 5 years or so.

A330/'s I have no doubt, will appear for next summer, the demand is there, but long haul is a long way off IMHO.

tonker 18th Jun 2015 08:04

Why would an airline that's still buying second hand 737-800's be about to convert to Airbus? Nonsense

Mr Mac 18th Jun 2015 11:41

Anybody know what's going down to Palma on the 06.40 Friday as I will be on it. When booked it was to be 330 now I presume 767, any ideas which one. Thanks in anticipation.

Mr Mac

Privilege...
 
Bad news Mr Mac - if it's the 06:40 it will be the Privilege 757. The flying that was planned for the A330 seems to be split across a 757 and a 737, so you often see two departures a day to the same place now.

If will be J2 CC, but the FD are Privilege, and the interior is obviously not the J2 fit.

bjones4 18th Jun 2015 12:42

LS831/832 tomorrow are on a Jet2 757, it's easy to pick out the Privilege 757 vs a Jet2 one by the seat maps.

Priviledge has 37 rows with Row 18/19 being the over-wing exit rows.
Jet2 has 42 rows with 33A/33F being adjacent to the aft-wing exits.

Station_Calling 18th Jun 2015 14:40

Nope.

Nope. LS831 tomorrow is currently scheduled on E-CISY - not a Jet2.com aircraft.

SC.

bjones4 18th Jun 2015 15:19

Ah apologies, I'd clicked through to Saturdays 832. Hopefully my own flights on 831/832 in September will stay on Jet2 metal!

Mr Mac 18th Jun 2015 21:17

Oh well its only 2.5 hrs with luck! Thanks for the up dates, even with the less than Rosy news.
