Inaugural Edinburgh Airport Flights
 
The first flight of the Edinburgh Airport expansion in 2016 left on Friday bound for Tenerife. Today, the second flight bound for Lanzarote departed, and is well on its way. The one 738 based there is set to have a very busy season indeed, alongside what is currently 3 733QC and 1 733WL :ok:

Early Fleet Shortages?
 
Various non-LS aircraft have been operating under the channex callsign recently. Does anyone know why we have;

A Germania A321 operating LS218
A Thomson 738 operating LS632

Scary if we're having fleet shortages this early in the season :ok:

ematom1 14th Feb 2016 18:17

Also had a Neos 737-800 operating EMA-ACE-EMA on Saturday

Shortage of aircraft, or shortage of crew?

Alot of guys have left recently, with probably more to follow so I suspect the latter, and this is a quiet time of the year...

JM926 18th Feb 2016 11:04

Can't see crewing shortage as being the reason to be honest.

Most crew have a very quiet roster at the minute. For what it's worth my guess is aircraft still being in maintenance.

Will Jet 2 increase its North Atlantic programme or is it just a 'one - off' Christmas shopping special to EWR?

cheers

Anyone know why Jet2 are pulling its winter routes from LBA, EDI, EMA, MAN & NCL to Chambery as from April?

Looks like LBA, EMA and EDI are all getting replacement flights to Grenoble next winter 2016/17 season, whilst they already serve Grenoble from MAN

Johnny [email protected] Pants 1st Mar 2016 15:33

Chambery pulled due to the many issues it regularly creates when things don't go to plan down there.

Chambrey
 
When it work its fantastic, but slots, bad weather just make it a hassle 50% of the time, i've given up and go by way of Geneva or Grenoble if its a coach connection, you end up waiting for other flights, so what you save in transfer time you lose at the airport. A good decision by Jet2, no doubt Titan will continue with it, but they don't have a flying program to cover when delayed.

GJZHF - now registered
 
GJZHF joins the Jet2 fleet!

I see that the first of the 4 B738 joining the fleet was registered on 29/02/16.
Although location is unknown.

HOODED 2nd Mar 2016 09:07

4 new 738s
 
It arrived at LBA yesterday still in Transavia colours.EI-RUE is also sat at Multiflight but this one is in full Jet2 grey minus rudder which is still in Transaero colours.

Do we know if the full page advert in the RAF NEWS in mid January have a good response for Jet2.
I have no idea if the basic of 65k plus bonus a good salary.
Hopefully the 30 new 737's on order will be a plus to offer new pilots, with the added bonus they are for the first 18 at least to replace older aircraft. All should arrive in the next 24 months.

No EDI to GNB flight added yet. Does anyone know when flights are expected to be released. EDI-TRN has been added for W17

Honiley 6th Mar 2016 18:07

They certainly made a 'Dogs Dinner' of Chambery a few weeks ago! Probably the catalyst for the commercial decision to pull out! Whilst we all made it in eventually, Jet2 diverted to LYS/GNB then went to Clermont Ferrand!!! A delightful 5 hour drive for their customers!!!

I think straight forward Benidorm is more their thing!!!

Chesty Morgan 6th Mar 2016 19:22

Oh my God! A diversion...from Chambery...you must be joking.

Jet2_738 6th Mar 2016 19:31

With respect Honiley, the only reason for the diversions were due to the weather in Chambery - not anything Jet2, nor ANY other tour operator could have done anything about. For the last few months on their status page, they've advised all customers to be prepared for potential disruption in Chambery, something we all know is inevitable every season.

Station_Calling 7th Mar 2016 20:15

There were other diverts that day.

2Planks 8th Mar 2016 08:09

And the passengers that I spoke to were full of praise for the speed at which Jet2 provided them with hotel accommodation in Clermont Ferrand. Yes, they were frustrated with the delays, but were kept informed through the day. Skiers are used to travel delays and are well aware of the potential delays at Chambery, just check any of the snowsports forums. This season has been bad for diversions for most airlines out of Chambery in comparison with previous years. There was a chance of a hassle free weekend until some twit left a rucksack in the terminal last Saturday and it had to be evacuated. They must be thinking they can't win.


Perhaps they should double the size of the terminal and the apron at Grenoble so Chambery can revert to a pleasant summer VFR airfield!
