Do LS overbook flights?

TSR2 22nd Oct 2016 14:04


ask me if I packed my bags myself.
Why should she ask you that when you said you were travelling with hand baggage only !

Needless to say I'm pretty p!ssed off with Jet2. I selected online check-in as I'm travelling with hand luggage only and with a departure time of 07:30 I planned to arrive at GLA at around 06:30 and go straight to the departure gate. Now it looks like I'll have the joys of getting up an hour earlier, leaving the house an hour earlier and spending an hour more than planned hanging about an airport terminal at silly o'clock in the morning. All so I can have some teenager wearing a copious amount of make-up ask me if I packed my bags myself.

Thank's very much Jet2.
Thomsons do the same. They only have a certain percentage of seats available for OLCI. After they've all been allocated you can only check in at the airport. If you're late to check in online, or a lot of people have already prebooked seats then you're out of luck.

I would suggest that if you arrive at the airport at 06:30 you'll still be fine. Check in closes about 40 mins before departure, if there's a queue you will get pulled out and moved to the front of the queue.

For an explanation, airlines have to keep a certain percentage of seats unreserved for those that don't pre-book them, the way to prevent this from happening to you again you should check-in online sooner.

The issue here is that having a certain number of seats available allows opportunities to resolve any potential seating issues.

PRM customers may be in unsuitable seats, Families may be split up etc.

You never know, you may get a extra legroom seat if everything else has been taken up.

Thomson Airways aslo doe exactly the same and so do many others.

Been 5x 738s working at NCL last few days and 5x set to depart tomorrow when only 4x 738s have been allocated all Summer. Has a 733 been upgraded ?

Probably just movement of the fleet to cater for 1/2 term. Scottish 1/2 terms are different weeks, so the extra aeroplanes might have been swapped round with GLA or EDI to provide extra capacity.

Birmingham W17/18
 
Seven new routes now on the website: Funchal (1 weekly), Geneva (3 weekly), Grenoble (1 weekly), Kraków (2 weekly), Prague (2 weekly), Salzburg (1 weekly), Turin (1 weekly).

All names taken 26th Oct 2016 14:20

Well they are all going to be 'new routes' aren't they since it will be the first Winter season Jet2 have a presence there. Unless you are saying that routes such as Geneva and Prague have never been served from BHX before, which I'm sure you're not.
Are you working for the PR department at BHX?

That's a bit harsh! They are new routes for Jet2 at BHX; and it's good to see some imagination in offering Prague and Krakow.

I see West Atlantic have increased their share of the Royal Mail Contract. Is this at Jet2's expense? Or Titan?

HH6702 28th Oct 2016 11:12

How many aircraft does west Atlantic have operating in the U.K. Already?

CCGE29 28th Oct 2016 11:14

Jet2's next 738 G-JZHL (c/n 63568) is due into MAN in the early hours (29/10/16) on delivery. Believe it's in the holidays livery.

LBIA 28th Oct 2016 11:34

Yeah G-JZHL is in part Jet2holidays livery due into MAN at 0235 from BFI, Will be going to down to EMA tomorrow to have paint job finished.

Meanwhile G-JZHM took its first flight on Wednesday afternoon departing RNT for BFI

Jet2 didn't tender for most of the Royal Mail this time round. I understand that Royal Mail chose 1 operator to provide their service, so I assume Titan missed out if they submitted a tender.

West Atlantic has been awarded a contract by Royal Mail Group (UK) to add additional aircraft to its network in 2017. The contract, which commences in January 2017, will run for a duration of five years and will consist of nine Boeing 737s and three British Aerospace ATP aircraft...

...West Atlantic was selected to be the sole provider of aircraft capable of carrying between 8-21 tonnes...

With the QC's soon to leave the fleet Jet2 only bid for the Belfast with the dedicated freighter.

The post office decided they wanted one operator to cover all their flights hence Atlantic being the ideal operator.

MKY661 28th Oct 2016 19:55

Speaking of QC's leaving the fleet one has positioned to Kemble today according to Jethro's (G-CELZ). Another 5 to leave this winter was the rumour I heard but not sure which exact ones.
