As far as I know Blackpool was never a crew base, all flights were operated by Manchester crews.

BLK was a base, crewed locally.

Alicante is also a crewed base, you've missed that one.

Titan Airways are to once again operate on behalf of LS for S16. Using a 212 seat A321 (G-POWN), which is to be added to the Titan Fleet in April.

Does anyone know where the aircraft will be based?

Manchester! B757 also at LBA from end of March...

Don't think Privilege Style are operating for Jet2 this year.

strawberry Ribena 27th Jan 2016 00:12

What was wrong with privilege style?

MKY661 27th Jan 2016 00:13

I'm not sure what actually happened but I read on this forum that something didn't go down well last summer.

Brigantee 27th Jan 2016 00:55

Perhaps you should ask what was right with privilige ... it did us no favours whatsoever

Thank you for that information [email protected] Now that I have to drag my ancient bones to Alicante in order to fly to Edinburgh I fear that I shall transfer my allegiance to the Irishman's outfit.

No, don't do that.

I'm going to have to use ALC too to get to the holiday home, it's 15 mins from Murcia. Unfortunately it's all about these days.

Hi all
Managed to get some time off due to heavy maintenance and booked on to jet2 GLA - ACE 13/3/16. Just wondering if its a 738, what the interiors are like, seat pitch, seats non recliners??? etc. Usually flown TCX past 5 years but J2 much cheaper this year

Johnny [email protected] Pants 2nd Feb 2016 21:54

Most flights from GLA are B737-800. Seats don't recline :ok:, seat pitch is generous (not sure of the exact pitch) due to the clever seat design. The interiors of all the aircraft are very new, they have been refitted and had larger overhead lockers fitted to help with room in the cabin.

Enjoy your trip.

Jet2 crew bases
 
Skipness,


Should Alicante not be on that list? They do tend to have a 733 stationed there, I understood that some crew were based there also?


The backup ac has been able to position to airports around the network quickly and hence keep the operation running smoothly. I've seen examples of where the plane was deployed to Pisa and Tenerife before from there for rescue missions. Potentially has upsides in terms of minimising costs from extensive delays while keeping things on track..

Yes! There are 2 aircraft based at ALC. 1 flying and another 1 as back up. Crew based, too.

Great news about the non reclining seats and seat pitch, fed up having my knees round my chin, can't wait to get time off and let someone else do the driving

Jet2 will now be acquiring 4 second hand 737-800's instead of three this winter, although the Ex. SunExpress aircraft which was due will now be an Ex. Transaero Aircraft (Source: jethro's UK and Ireland Airline Fleet Listings).

Twiglet1 3rd Feb 2016 19:01

How has the recruitment been over the winter? There were lots of suggestions about turn over and no crew left.Fact fiction or usual moaning pilots 😠
