Anyway Coventry is way way way too far south for Jet2 to serve!!!
Don't forget Jet2's roots are in Bournemouth under Channel Express.

HOODED 30th Nov 2014 20:29

True, but Jet2 don't operate from BOH. Their base is in the North at LBA these days and has already been stated they don't really seem to venture much further South than EMA for pax servicies. I guess EZY has already got it sewn up down there. Personally I think CWL could work though I doubt it will happen any time soon.

tws123 30th Nov 2014 22:38

Well Jet2 did try to open a base at SEN in 2012 but the airport could not accommodate them at that time. What's to say they wouldn't try again in the future? There's a big holiday market from SEN which EZY has not yet fully covered.

EK77WNCL 30th Nov 2014 23:17

But EZY has the contract and I'm sure they'd jump Jet2 and have them gone in no time. Although LS can do longer routes from SEN which EZY can't due to the A32X's runway performance.

Any chance we can re-title this thread: 'Fantasists and would love to see more tailfins at my favourite airport because my football team is better than your team Thread''?

Just sayin'

I'm not sure if CVT still has it's temporary terminal but if it does I assume that could be used? I'm sure permission was granted to build a permanent one
The history of Coventry's terminal is convoluted as planning involved more than one local authority and several appeals. IIRC it eventually went to the High Court where permission was either declined or overruled.

How about BLK-MAN? The train service is awful. Oh, hang on...

Thomson used Portacabins when they flew from there.

What are people's opinions on the medium haul 757 routes I mentioned?

arfortune 3rd Dec 2014 17:46

Planes at Glasgow
Apologies if this has been discussed, I did a quick search.
Just saw several (5?) 737 and a 757 parked at Glasgow. Is this just seasonal, maintenance or have they been withdrawn? Just wondering

SWBKCB 3rd Dec 2014 18:13

Seasonal - it's the lowest part of the low season...

LBIA 8th Dec 2014 19:31

Boeing 737-300, G-CELU has operated its last ever flight. As she was flown from Leeds down to Kemble for part out and scrapping earlier today. Understand G-CELC will be the next aircraft to follow within days.

IB4138 8th Dec 2014 20:00

G-CELC is still in service. Due to be withdrawn this coming weekend and then flown to Kemble next Monday 15 December. This aircraft was delivered new to British Midland as G-OBMA, their first 733 for Heathrow services.

N707ZS 9th Dec 2014 09:15

Kemble seems to be grabbing every scrapping job they can get there hands on! Must be cheap.

Flying Wild 12th Dec 2014 18:22

G-CELC will have her last flight on the morning of 16 Dec, flying from LBA-EGB.

kieb92 16th Dec 2014 21:33

Do we know the routes for the Air Asia A330 lease for 2015? Current timetable lists turnaround times as 1 hour for most flights so not sure which flights it will operate. Guessing a 360 seat A330 may need a bit longer.

pug 16th Dec 2014 21:40

I won't be specific but I believe some of the typical high density med routes are what it's intended for. It's gone quiet as far as I'm concerned but I believe more will be clear by the end of Jan..

Certainly not the best kept secret in the company..

GVACMF 19th Dec 2014 19:31

Looks like the Routes for the A330 are loaded on their website

DLM,TFS,PFO,ACE + BJV seem to be the routes all out of MAN

EK77WNCL 20th Dec 2014 19:01

I love that seat map... It just looks... Right on the Jet2 website.

Only 50 for business class too :P

EDIT: They'll also be using it to PMI

Armodeen 21st Dec 2014 15:30

So far it seems only PMI is confirmed.

50 for the business seats indeed...angle flats with 60 inch pitch, bargain! :D

LAX_LHR 21st Dec 2014 15:43

[quote]So far it seems only PMI is confirmed.[\quote]

The TFS flights are confirmed too, definitely a twin aisle aircraft with a small premium cabin in the seat map on Thursdays next summer.

Armodeen 21st Dec 2014 15:50

Subject to confirmation/substitution, I hear.... apparently only PMI is set in stone, the others which are on the website are yet to be set in stone.

(Quite why they would be bookable if not confirmed I don't know. Perhaps the source is mistaken)

*edit* also on Jet2.com it seems to be a 752 on thursdays to TFS?

Facelookbovvered 21st Dec 2014 16:47

I do hope this aircraft behaves itself!! trying to recover delays off the back of a tech A330 will be a challenge to say the least.

danielsirrom 21st Dec 2014 21:01

It's the Friday TFS from MAN showing as wide-bodied.

samj 22nd Dec 2014 12:34

I would be surprised if didn't venture to ALC too?! Will we be seeing the aircraft in Jet2 livery?

EK77WNCL 22nd Dec 2014 14:00

I think most likely it will be some kind of AirAsia/Jet2 hybrid, then next most likely is probably that it will look something like G-POWI when they leased it... But then if they are repainting a whole A330 white? Why not repaint it in full livery...

If it was up to me, full red tail Jet2 livery all the way but I doubt it

Will it operate any flights from Leeds?

Facelookbovvered 22nd Dec 2014 23:25

It would be good to see it in Jet2 livery, the spotters would be creaming themselves, personally I'm not so sure its a good idea, sure it will be good advertising, looking all posh and that but there is a very good reason that you don't see wide body aircraft doing med runs day in day out.

Who's flying it? whats the back up plan, recovery plan? some have suggested its try before you buy, even the oldest A330's command good money, i wish them luck, it will be an interesting summer.:ok:

Jet2_738 27th Dec 2014 15:57

Retiring the 737QC's
I know that the 737QC's are getting older now, and I wonder what Jet2 could do with them, to secure the Royal Mail Cargo Contract during the night? The only routes to go down, are maybe to use the QC's just as Cargo, but then again that is no long term solution. I could only then probably suggest to retain commonality with the Boeing fleet that they do their best to attain a few 737-700C's, as these are the direct Next Gen Version of the -300 series, and would have the commonality with their -800 NG's. Any other suggestions? :confused:

SWBKCB 27th Dec 2014 17:20

Been discussed previously - where would they get 700C's from?

GLAinsider 27th Dec 2014 17:56

As far as I know they have another wide bodied a/c, a B763, on lease from TITAN i.e. G-POWD

EK77WNCL 27th Dec 2014 19:38

GLAinsider, is that now or summer?

blueplatinum 27th Dec 2014 20:59

Not sure. It was operating into TFS during Summer 14 (not sure what routes). Maybe it went back now.

I am booked on this 330 down to Palma in June in "Business" - had to try it just to see if it is any different from normal Jet 2 service, I am not expecting my normal EK,SQ.LH std ! Just wondering who the crew will be as it is none std kit for Jet 2. Any ideas ?.
