Today's delays
 
In fairness today there were delays across the board in various airlines due to Spanish strike action. Don't think that's due to crewing levels

Slot delays in peak summer are a fact of life for all operators. My gut feeling is that manning levels are under severe strain right now at jet2. To take a 4-5 hr delay at a main base with an operator that supposedly keeps 4 aircraft + crew on airport standby indicates a severe shortage of some sort?

I have no dog in the race, other than alot of ex colleagues who earn a living there. I only hope that management there grasp the severity of the problem in time.

Seen a 757 climbing out of Malaga today heading for Alicante, what would that have been for?

Anyone know why it took so long to position AH from LBA into MAN tonight to operate EXS781?

Flew in to NCL last night on G-GDFO from Pisa (yep, was on a Jet2 bucket and spade holiday) and for an old bird she was spot on. Pilot was excellent, kept everyone informed of the bits we needed to know, safe flight, plane spotless, excellent cabin crew.

Think the Pilot name was David Eels but I was 3 glasses of vino to the wind at this point and listening to The Style Council so I may be wrong on this.

Bravo Jet2, a thoroughly excellent flight in and out on an old 737 300 and a great holiday.

Well someone thinks they are doing something right!
Despite the suits (and some in uniform) in LFFH, the share price is moving along nicely.
Keep up the good work boys and girls!

A good idea but getting a bill and paying a bill are rather different.
Will he pay, I rather doubt it.

Yes but clearly the whole point of this initiative isn't to get a few grand out of these people, it's to get the message out through the media that Jet2 isn't an airline which will tolerate this kind of behaviour. It will leave you stranded at whichever airport they divert to and it will have you arrested and it will ban you for life and it will bill you. Got to be some kind of a deterrent - good on them!

Will he pay now probably not but when the High Court Bailiffs arrive at his door unannounced with a warrant to seize and an inflated bill nearer 5,000 he will else find himself bankrupted AND sans Tele/PC and car !

The days have gone when these debts aren't recovered by businesses !

Yes, I agree. But we are talking about Jet2 here.

They don't fly from Aberdeen currently but the ABZ social media pages have been hinting at the last week or so of an "exciting, big announcement" that is imminent.

Consensus on the ABZ board is that it is going to be a based LCC operating long overdue leisure flights out of ABZ. LS themselves have previously expressed an interest in operating out of ABZ.

Mirror article perhaps knows something or is it usual UK tabloid reporting standards?

GLAinsider 19th Aug 2015 14:38

I remember that FlyGlobespan tried to make a go at ABZ in the 00's but it was tough going up there back then. Maybe things are different now. I doubt Aberdeen can sustain more then a couple of B733s and some VERY carefully chosen routes.

..... Monarch tried too - from AGP. Great loads, the only problem was that those canny Aberdonians wouldn't pay a penny more than the equivalent service from MAN, so you had 50 minutes extra flying for zero incremental revenue. Jet 2 beware!

I'm in Aberdeen now and stuff (holidays) seem so expensive!

The problems started when Globespan showed up. Contrary to toons post, loads AND yields were good for Monarch until GS showed up offering a whole other range of destinations. The problem is that the market just ain't that big from ABZ and with more choice came lower yields until the airport ended up with next to nothing.
