Anyone know what G-LSAG was doing at LGW today? Currently on route to MAN as EXS148C.

flybar 17th Mar 2013 21:05

Jet2 had 5 aircraft committed to Six Nations traffic to Dublin from Rome today.
Is nobody else interested in this traffic given the low utilisation of fleets at this time of year?
In recent months it seems they have a large chunk of the football/rugby etc. charter work to themselves!

LBIA 17th Mar 2013 22:05

"GLAinsider" Jet2's Boeing 757-200ís G-LSAG and G-LSAK have been operating the Fred Olsen cruise charters today which tend to operate every other week between London Gatwick and Tenerife.

As mentioned earlier by "flybar" Jet2 have also been operating quite a few charter flights carrying Irish Rugby Union fans between Dublin and Rome this weekend using Boeing 737-800 G-GDFD, Boeing 737-300 G-GDFO, along with Boeing 757-200ís G-LSAE and G-LSAH

I know Monarch Airlines have been doing most of the Welsh rugby charters but I do have to say that it's mainly the brokers who decide which airline to use based on aircraft suitability and price.

I know last year the French fans used all sorts of airlines to travel to Cardiff. Jet2, Monarch, Europe Airpost, Air France Regional, Air France, Atlantique Air Assistance, Luxair, Airexplore, XL Airways France, Transavia France, Albastar.ES, Aeronova, LOT Polish Airlines, WDL Aviation.

As LBIA said:

AK and AG both did LGW - TFS - LGW, with AK then positioning to NCL, and AG positioning to MAN.

All part of the Fred Olsen Cruise programme - think this was the penultimate flight of the programme.

So happy! :D

Jet2's latest Boeing 737-800WL G-GDFR was positioned from Southend up to Manchester this afternoon as well. Dose anyone know which livery she is in?

Chille Con Carnie 29th Mar 2013 20:45

G-GDFR
 
Ex- Austrian Livery with red rudder clue here ?

BFS BHD 29th Mar 2013 21:21

Anyone know what the loads where like on the first flights of the year to Blackpool Airport and Palma Airport for Jet2 at BFS?

Cheers :)

G-GDFR was previously with Austrian (OE-LNQ). It was seen in SNN in OS Livery. The Austrian title and logo had been removed.

EZY7117LPL 29th Mar 2013 22:12

Rumours last year were that Jet2 were going to look at LPL again this year? Anyone know anything? It would definetely be worth their while!

BOH
 
With the great success that Jet2 has experienced in the northern UK market since it's formation going to head to head with the likes of Easyjet, Monarch and Ryanair wouldn't it make sense for Jet2 to look futher south for future expansion perhaps towards Bournemouth which is totally under utilised with only Ryanair to compete with on scheduled flights for only 9 months of the year plus a single short seasonal flight with Easyjet to Geneva.

It has a long runway, a new terminal and a wide catchment area and is ripe for expansion if only a consistent operator were to offer a good selection of destinations on a yearly basis.

I know Bournemouth has it's drawbacks such as public transport links and not being on a main highway but the fact is there has always been a very limited choice at the airport over the years and not really catering to the needs of the wider catchment area.

I know Jet2 were going to fly from BOH to Belfast a few years ago but that's a different story but with the great advertising that Jet2 is known for I am sure that BOH could be a good opportunity for them.

In one word no, they have decided Liverpool has Easy and Ryan, so risky to start a new venture there

Its a shame, as I would have thought the new based aircraft in Lanzarote and Alicante could have been a good chance to gauge demand to non based airports in the UK.

ALC/ACE-LPL/BOH/STN/BHX could have been done. Its only 2 routes, but like I say, a good chance to see if the Jet2 brand could work at these airports. Ive missed out LGW as competition is rife here, and I don't think Jet2 could survive a price war down there.

2Planks 30th Mar 2013 07:17

I thought the ALC and ACE aircraft were only on standby to reduce costs under EU 261?

LAX_LHR 30th Mar 2013 07:20

They are essentially standby aircraft, but the ACE aircraft has been given a flying roster. Flights to BLK/BFS/MAN at least.

EZY7117LPL 30th Mar 2013 18:25

EasyJet and Ryanair are also at Manchester and easyJet are heading for the same size at both airports and unfortanetely probably getting bigger at Manchester, surely Jet2 are in the same position at both airports especially as there is even more competition on some of their routes at Manchester.

There are so many un-served routes at LPL, it would be a goldmine for them!

An airline like Jet2, Monarch or thomson would hit the jackpot at LPL.

airadio 30th Mar 2013 18:33

Jet 2 where established at Manchester Befor Easy And Ryan joined in THATS THE DIFFRENCE:rolleyes: its just to much of a gamble at Liverpool in the current economic climate. In fact thats the prob at Liverpool Easy and Ryan rule the roost, and no airline will gamble money on a base there. Well for a few years anyway,money is just to tight

LBIA 2nd Apr 2013 16:15

Jet2's ex Austrian Boeing 737-800WL, G-GDFR positioned from Manchester to Bournemouth this morning for its delayed paint job. It is hoped that G-GDFP will follow in a few days time.

Also looks like the first of the 2x leased Travel Service Boeing 737-800WL's OK-TSA has received an interim paint job in Norwich and is read for service.

Does anybody where GDFL is based now, I see she's not at BLK at moment as been swopped with FK without the winglets, Just wondered as last time saw her come in she came in with what sounded like a abang and there were a few people peering in one of the engines? was over a weeek ago now, meant to ask at time, but forgot all about , just not seen her on Flightradar either.

Lsflyer 2nd Apr 2013 19:23

GGDFL operated BFS-TFS today so definately still flying. Maybe that was just routine maintenance looking in the engine?

Drive4it 2nd Apr 2013 19:41

BJL
 
Anyone at LS heard of any progress in the move to medium haul to The Gambia? BJL.

Looks like MON are scaling back to just LGW - BJL and cut MAN - BJL 2013/14

Espada III 2nd Apr 2013 20:47

TLV dropped?
 
No longer able to book TLV beyond November 2013. Have Jet2 succumbed to EZY competition?

LAX_LHR 2nd Apr 2013 20:55

Yes easyjet have increased to 3 weekly from Feb 2013 and rumoured to be 5 weekly for S14, o looks like Jet2 have thrown in the towel.

Travel Agent 2nd Apr 2013 21:08

Would be good to give TCX some competition on MAN-BJL, I'm sure Gambia Experience would be happy to buy seatsits a good moneyspinner for TCX and Thomas Cook Holidays. Monarch did not fly this or last year as far as I can remember.

Charlie98 2nd Apr 2013 23:04

Can anyone see Jet2 being interested in G-FCLH/B which are being returned to their lessors?

LPFR 2nd Apr 2013 23:27

Is the registration of that Travel Service aircraft hiden?
Will it remain OK-TSA or are they changing it to a British registration?

Lsflyer 3rd Apr 2013 09:44

Jet2 are scaling down the 757's like other airlines and favouring the 737-800 for the immediate future! Dont think they have any plans for gambia as yet as they are sticking to core sun routes that they know they can fill.

MKY661 3rd Apr 2013 10:02

Think it is keeping it as it's only being used for the summer :)

Nope it has kept the standard Jet2 scheme :)

Royal mail contract
 
Any heard if the royal mail contract which is due to end in Oct 2014 has been renewed? It was out for tender & expected to be decided in Q1 this year.

Thanks.

LBIA 4th Apr 2013 22:57

The summer leased Travel Service Boeing 737-800-WL, OK-TSA was positioned from Norwich to East Mids this evening and will enter revenue service tomorrow.

SCANDIC 5th Apr 2013 09:00

The 2 tommy cooks are most likely going to fed ex, i would say that i can see jet2 flogging some of theirs in the next year or 2. Jet2 would be best with a 767 for banjul.
