Quite happy to agree to disagree.

That's all good then

DGAC ordered/requested/pleaded FR to cancel around 20% of flights to/from French airports
That's understandable I suppose, however the passengers I picked up on the Monday morning in Reus that were travelling to Bristol weren't too pleased to be told that their flight was cancelled and to come back on SATURDAY!!

Definitely more on time stat creation at the expense of passengers under the guise of French ATC.

Lets not go there and compare JET 2 and RYAN on cancelling flights.

Last French strike had a daughter on a JET2 plane to PALMA and a daughter on a RYAN to FARO. Early morning from LBA.

Not one RYAN flight left , but the JET2 one did.
Cancelled flight means the CUSTOMER has to claim the money back and guess what some 30% never do !
Faro from Leeds easy missing France. Palma not so easy.
The Captain and crew on Ryan do not always get paid. There is some rule about if you board , but others will know better than I.

EC-ISY made its way to MAN today for 2 month lease from Jet2.

lbiaer 2nd Jul 2014 11:48

Anyone know what the delay is on the 251 Faro this morning? Will be flying on the 252 return later - thanks.

What happened to the EMA - HER LS625 to make the local news during a diversion to Manchester?

Departed East Mids late at 17.40 went North West towards Manchester on its departure squawk, then turned back south towards East Mids at 19000ft before squawk changed to 7700 at 18.00. Then held over the Peake District before diverting to Manchester landing at around 18.55.

As usual FR24 replay helped with some of the above.

It actually made the local TV News before it landed at Manchester apparently.

It was a 738 this time.


Flying Wild 4th Jul 2014 21:45

I think you meant the EMA-HER.

...and it had a pressurisation problem.

Gail73 7th Jul 2014 13:47

Hi I am flying with my family to Feuerteventura and think (by googling it) I am flying on 737-800 with Jet 2 from Manchester. I suffer with claustrophobia (only recently started) and after a chat with a Jet 2 advisor she has booked me row 15 on the way out and row 34 on the way back. She said these are by the emergency exits so will be behind the row with extra leg room seats - which may help for me to see a bit of space in front of me (i'm hoping). I can't find a picture of the plane so I can get a view of the seating or what teh place is going to look like and the seats - as I am now worried that she has given me duff info and that I have paid extra for these seats for nothing. I'm not normally a mad woman but my kids will be with me and I don't want to be scaring them with me having an attack and being escorted embarrasingly from the place...can anyone give me some advice please and if anyone knows what the places are like insude could they give me some info..thanks

TSR2 7th Jul 2014 21:11

From the seating plans for these flights it would appear the aircraft is a Boeing 757 (only checked July departures). If it is a 757 I am sure you will be fine.

righthandrule 7th Jul 2014 21:59

The doors on the 757 aircraft are at row 12/14 and emergency exits at row 33. So sat in row 15 and 34, you will in the next row behind the emergency exit seats, as the Jet2 agent told you, these seats are good if you are claustrophobic as there is plenty of space around.

BFS Dude 11th Jul 2014 14:35

Anyone know what the plan is at Belfast International currently there is 3 aircraft needed for some mornings and afternoons in Summer 2015. This year only two aircraft is needed, here is the current timetable for a Thursday in July:

07:00 Palma
07:30 Malaga
07:30 Alicante
15:15 Ibiza
15:45 Reus

There is still a lot of gaps to fill for next year anyone no what they are doing? Thanks! :)

GAZMO 11th Jul 2014 15:41

Assume that aircraft needed to do the mail run on Monday to Fridays ?

BFS Dude 11th Jul 2014 15:54

Well on Monday there is three aircraft needed in the afternoon:

07:00 Palma
07:10 Faro
14:30 Mahon
15:10 Murcia
15:45 Reus

13:35 Palma
14:25 Faro
20:55 Mahon
21:45 Murica
21:50 21:50

So Guessing they need 5 Aircraft:

3 for Passanger flights & 2 for Cargo flights?

GAZMO 11th Jul 2014 16:05

Normally one cargo plane used Monday through to Friday evening flight
Maybe some one in jet2 could update about bfs

BFS Dude 11th Jul 2014 16:20

This year there is two cargo route at BFS.

1) Stansted (G-GDFE does this one)
2) East Midlands (G-CELW does this one)

BFS BHD 11th Jul 2014 16:27

The new routes to fill gaps will be announced around October time! :)

david1994 11th Jul 2014 16:33

Yes new routes I was told Sep,, has it been pushed back to Oct now??

BFS Dude 11th Jul 2014 16:34

Nice any idea what the new routes are?

david1994 11th Jul 2014 17:12

Central and Eastern Europe, cant say exactly but some are ex EZY routes!

BFS Dude 11th Jul 2014 17:15

Okay thanks for the info!

More Tech woes

Jet2 Manchester to Faro flight delayed due to 'air conditioning fire' - Manchester Evening News

LN-KGL 16th Jul 2014 16:32

It looks like G-CELI is flying in stead of one of the LS 752s - ETA 16:19 UTC, 6 hours 19 minutes late.

JonnyH 16th Jul 2014 18:50

And more.. Passengers travelling to Newcastle endure 17 hour delay as pilot catches up on his sleep - Chronicle Live

Fed up of seeing them to be honest.

Facelookbovvered 16th Jul 2014 20:11

Fed up of stories about Jet2 or stories about moaning passengers?

The problem with these stories is they grow legs, of course all airlines have tech issues, but having said that of late Jet2 is in the press for the wrong reasons and there is no getting away from the fact that older aircraft have more issues period, its a fact of engineering

The weakness of the 737 is its air systems

Given the compensation culture and the recent court case these delays are going to hurt in the pocket

So are we!! Happened on 13th July, conveniently brought up on the 16th!

Mr Angry from Purley 17th Jul 2014 17:58

Yes i'll have a standby Crew for every flight and contingency and the punters can pay twice / three times as much for the ticket price.
Maybe they can add that option when they pay for the ticket, cost of ticket 100 do you want a hire car, hotel, insurance, or an extra crew that's another 100 please select here. Punters we love them, just bad luck better a awake crew than a tired one for me

TSR2 17th Jul 2014 19:05

Yes i'll have a standby Crew for every flight and contingency and the punters can pay twice / three times as much for the ticket price.
Ops must have known the situation before the flight departed and should have made contingency plans, if possible, to minimise the delay and the overall cost to the airline.

It is not a case of having a standby crew for every flight but a case of having a standby crew at least at one of their bases to cover such eventualities.

However, if it is a case that a standby crew were already covering another flight, then its tough luck - these things happen, not pleasant but these things do happen.

I guess we do not know the full story.

Big Tony 27th Jul 2014 06:31

Anyone heard any rumours about jet2 buying airbus. Don't want to say where i heard this but seem pretty serious

fa2fi 27th Jul 2014 08:36

I don't see why they would. They've been exclusively Boeing for many years. Any talk of going airbus would only be used as a bargaining chip against Boeing so any airbus rumour would only suggest to me that they're going to buy new jets direct from Boeing.

Lord Spandex Masher 27th Jul 2014 09:14

Not necessarily........

pwalhx 27th Jul 2014 09:59

There were if I recall correctly rumours of an A330 so who knows what may happen

CabinCrewe 27th Jul 2014 11:21

they don't buy new so why would it be a bargaining tool against Boeing ?

horsebox 27th Jul 2014 11:43

They will buy what other carriers are getting rid off at the right price.... Rumours of bigger machines float about from time to time.

The jet2 business is very seasonal, older aircraft bought outright sitting around idle over winter is the way it works.

take-off 27th Jul 2014 12:44

Ooh an A330 out of BLK , now that would be interesting:E:E:E:E

We'll talk of airbus , monarch will have a few Vintage A320/1's for sale in near future , should they take those new 737s....

Yes but that's changing. Leased 800's need to fly more than owned 300's.

What are Jet2 getting more of? What will they start getting rid of?

Mr @ Spotty M 27th Jul 2014 17:07

Vintage or not Monarch will not have any a/c for sale as the don't own any.:ugh:

Artie Fufkin 27th Jul 2014 21:41

It's that time of year again. Maxed out crew start hallucinating and "hearing" news from above. Last year it was Titan and widebodies. This year it appears to be Airbus.

My prediction is another tranche of knackered 800s. Anyone want to bet against me?

CabinCrewe 27th Jul 2014 21:44

I would certainly bet against the term "knackered"... :rolleyes:

Facelookbovvered 28th Jul 2014 08:00

Jet2 have no previous form in buying new aircraft, why would they change a policy that in general has served them well and as others have pointed out its a seasonal business, if that means they can park their owned fleet and crews over the winter and just use leased aircraft so be it, it seems to work.:ok::ok:

horsebox 29th Jul 2014 21:51

They only have about 6 leased aircraft and 44 they own outright according to their latest annual report.

Biggest challenge they have is to make it an all year round business, which probably means some longer haul type destination, which would mean something larger of A330 or 767 sort of size. Whether they are in a position to do that anytime soon is anyones guess..
