G-JZHA was flying under a Norwegian callsign yesterday. That is probably what was meant.

G-JZHA - Is operating on behalf of DY today due to strike action by Scandanavian based pilots. Aircraft currently operating DY1800 OSL-AGP service.

You can always rely on a 75 even though they are getting on.

Jet2_738 4th Mar 2015 16:12

Have to love the 737. The -300's with the new winglets look stunning too! But for me, it has to be the -800. Long live the 737 (and the 757, of course, the next best thing!) :ok:

SCANDIC 4th Mar 2015 17:45

Only trouble is that the 73's seem to go tech a lot more than the 75's, 757 number one for me.

Jet2 Dart group.
There's obviously something going to at Jet2! The share price this morning has been very volatile.

Jet2 reveals cost of passenger compensation

Compensation payments to passengers whose flights have been delayed and cancelled will cost regional carrier Jet2 17 million this year.

The figure was revealed in a trading update to the London Stock Exchange by parent company Dart Group this morning.

However, the Group said winter losses were lower than expected, so operating profit for the year to the end of March will be ahead of current market expectations and broadly in line with last year when it made 49.2 million.

It said forward bookings for summer 2015 are 'encouraging' with over 50% of the season already sold, which is ahead of this time last year.

757 number one for me.
No surprise there then!!! :D

Bam Thwok 13th Mar 2015 13:14


Not sure about "volatile"......the market must just like what it heard this morning.

Up 18% so far today.....time to cash in those share options me thinks....Cheers "Big Phil"

Great news. Maybe they can afford a few more winglet kits before the fuel price rises start to bite again.:)

LNIDA 13th Mar 2015 17:13

If their hedging policy is similar to most other airlines then it will be sometime before they gain from the fall in fuel costs, probably third quarter, unless they take the hit in the current year.

HOODED 13th Mar 2015 18:28

Linda. Thanks for that. Makes the results even more impressive then.

I understand the winglets benefit the 733s more than the 738s due to the latter's already larger wing. I am surprised they are still flying 738s without them though I would have thought they would be an easier mod than the 300s. Also the 757s have been in the fleet a while so unless they intend getting rid of the older birds I would have expected them to have been upgraded during maintenance by now. Anyone any insight on the plans?

Trading Statement 13 March 2015

Dart Group PLC, the Leisure Travel and Distribution & Logistics group, is pleased to give the following update on trading.

The Board believes that Group underlying operating profit(1) for the year ending 31 March 2015 will be ahead of current market expectations and broadly in line with last year (2014: 49.2m), as a result of lower than anticipated winter losses.

Looking ahead to the year ending 31 March 2016, forward bookings in the Leisure Travel business for summer 2015 are encouraging, with over 50% of the season having already been sold, which is ahead of where we were at this stage last year.

The Distribution & Logistics business, Fowler Welch, continues to focus on growing its revenue pipeline and developing existing and new business opportunities.

The Group intends to further develop and grow its businesses and expects further progress in the year ending 31 March 2016.

Sorry if im bit behind the curve but whats happening about the a330 joining the fleet

Has now been called off. Privilege Style 757-200 will now be leased again instead.

walterthesofty 15th Mar 2015 12:09

Thanks just read it was down to the CAA not happy about them operatiing the 330 due to previous issues

Facelookbovvered 15th Mar 2015 15:33

CAA not happy about who operating the A330?? my understanding was that it was a ACMI lease.

To lease an aircraft please send your detailed request to *********.com Please specify:
1. What is the starting date of lease?
2. What is the route of the flights? Do you have the schedule?
3. Do you have commercial rights for these flights? Do you have the AOC?
4. How many sets of crew do you need?
5. What is the oldest aircraft age you would accept?
6. How many block hours do you guarantee? What is the cycles ratio?
7. What is your per hour budget?

Something to do with jet 2 past maintenance issues by all accounts

Absolute garbage. Jet2 weren't doing any of the A330 maintenance.

CabinCrewe 15th Mar 2015 17:44

that means nothing when there is an application to operate a new type. So maintenance provision may very much have been under scrutiny

Historical issues regarding maintenance problems on the 757 737 apparently led to the man from delmonte saying no

EK77WNCL 15th Mar 2015 21:33

I thought jet2 maintenance was top notch, and heavy maintenance outsourced...

I know this is a rumour network, but... :=

walterthesofty 15th Mar 2015 21:54

No idea how good or bad jet 2 are however the CAA have by all accounts concerns how justified those concerns are is another matter they are after all the campaign against aviation

Lord Spandex Masher 15th Mar 2015 21:58

Walter, you are badly misinformed.

silverknapper 15th Mar 2015 22:43

What garbage.

Is this the modern pprune these days. Regular posters have seemingly innocuous posts removed with no explanation. But ransoms can pop up and denigrate whoever they like with made up crap and nothing is done. :ugh:

chuzwuza 15th Mar 2015 23:11

Not to mention that Walter has 'form' for chucking his inaccurate, misguided, bull***t 2 peneth into the ring!

Skipness One Echo 16th Mar 2015 01:54

Agreed, walterthesofty had at least three usernames on here, all trolls. Given he works/ed for MAEL at Luton, he's not best placed to know.

Ivan aromer 16th Mar 2015 15:43

Are you saying that there have never been engineering issues at Jet2 that have caused the regulator to take action?
No, I thought not.

Lord Spandex Masher 16th Mar 2015 19:09

That is NOT the reason the A330 was cancelled though.

walterthesofty 16th Mar 2015 21:10

Sure about that masher??

Sean Dillon 16th Mar 2015 23:34

I thought Jet2 maintenance was top notch...
There is absolutely nothing "top notch" about Jet2, it's pound foolish and cheap! The Regulator showing ANY concerns I could very much believe, it's a very exposed operation with a lot of "significant events" and weak leadership...

Facelookbovvered 17th Mar 2015 08:29

Sean Dillon
I think you are pushing your luck with your last comment unless you can substantiate them with facts, i would respectfully suggest you ready the 'sticky' on the first page.

spottilludrop 17th Mar 2015 16:09

Heard jet2 are now using Monarch to service their aircraft

LBIA 17th Mar 2015 19:00

MAEL have been doing maintenance for Jet2's Boeing 757-200 fleet for about a year now. Most if not all have had visits to either Luton or Birmingham.

Boeingmann 20th Mar 2015 10:41

What total rubbish some people post. A330 was to have been operated on wet lease under another operators AOC. Wet lease means flight deck, engineering, etc are the responsibility of the operator who has provided the aircraft.

As to Jet2 maintenance, like ALL other UK operators it is not perfect but good enough to keep old aircraft flying year round.:ok:

BasilBush 21st Mar 2015 14:43

Jet2 in trouble with the CAA

BBC News - Airlines face court threat over customer services

spottilludrop 21st Mar 2015 14:55

Nothing new there then .....

Sean Dillon 21st Mar 2015 21:54

As said previous, it's obvious to those of that don't drink a certain someone's "cool-aid" and sit weekly "Take Me There" courses that in its present form, the future isn't very bright! Regulator watching and no great cash reserves...

The strange folk that think it's so secure....
