Is the NG maximum 189Y or bigger?

737aviator 3rd Sep 2015 09:46

189 on the 800, 220 on the 900 due to addition of another emergency exit.

Company announcement mentions "improved and stylish new cabin interior". I really hope someone has taken note of the lovely relaxed feeling inside the all light grey G-POWM that has been on lease from Titan. At a time when the company is focused on reducing stressful situations in the cabin, it is high time the garish, bright red and dark grey interiors were dropped from all Jet a/c and certainly not repeated in any new a/c purchased.

Big news for Jet2
 
Order confirmed with Boeing for new 737-8 .........

ETOPS 3rd Sep 2015 13:23

Interesting statement from PM that this new order is for both replacement and expansion. They operate 17 x B738 at the moment so will have 10 extra frames available if only those are replaced. However some of the 733 fleet are approaching 30 years old so it may be a "mix and match" situation - an increase in seats either way...

SWBKCB 3rd Sep 2015 16:32

Would expect they would be replacing the 733's and 757's where they can and standardising on the 738 as much as possible?

Presumably as end of the line 738's before the 737MAX kicks in, LS will have got a canny deal?

The new aircraft will feature the new Boeing Sky Interior, with the new LED mood lighting and more spacious overhead bins, toilets etc. As far as I'm aware, the seats will remain the same, as Jet2 were the primary inverters into Acro seating ltd. and still hold a significant stake in the business. The seats however might well change, but the provider will be the same company, with the idea of the slimline, lightweight seats, which Jet2 have boasted as one of their USP's. As for the colours... :ok:

I think the aim is to replace the 733's first (G-CEL* fleet mainly), the 752's later. Of course they have the likes of G-LSAK which is only 18 year old, but still have the likes of G-LSAA, nearing her 30's too.

In terms of the deal, the report states that;


"At current list prices, the total value of this transaction is approximately $2.6 billion though the Company has negotiated significant discounts from the list price."
Make of that what you will... :ok:

Are they, Council Van? That's very positive news I'm happy now :)

Who certified a new cockpit for the 757? Anyone else upgrading?

Innovative Solutions & Support did. Innovative Solutions & Support | Platforms and Systems

EPRman 4th Sep 2015 06:58

And Rockwell Collins.

My airline looked at the upgrade but there are no UK based simulators that are configurable so that was the end of that apparently.

GLAinsider 4th Sep 2015 10:46

Who was crewing G-LSAB last night? Looked like a quiet trip!

Leeds Spotter 4th Sep 2015 11:53

The purchase of 27 new aircraft is a huge change in Jet2 business plan. Understand 11 will be a straight replacement for leased aircraft, some to replace old aircraft and a few additions for expansion.
As a shareholder will be interested to see what winter 2107 plans will be, you cant have new aircraft sitting on the apron.
Breakdown seems to be 40% next 12 months balance following year.
With Ryaanir predicting air fares to drop 8% in the next 6 months interesting times.

Chesty Morgan 4th Sep 2015 12:13

You'll be waiting a long time ;)

GLAinsider 4th Sep 2015 12:14

I keep saying LS need to get in on the Scandinavian charter market in the Winter.

HeartyMeatballs 4th Sep 2015 15:47

So what are they going to do in the winter? Sitting around doing nothing when your plane is paid for or the occasional Royal Mail flight keep you going but these aircraft will be able to do neither. It's not feasible to have them all sat on the deck with massive finance payments to be made. Moving into non holiday routes maybe or an increase of winter programs?
