Thanks for the schedule. Does anyone know if the aircraft stays in Craiova until Friday or will they return empty?

MKY661 7th Jan 2012 16:54


From what I'm told the majority of the paying punters have said they like that scheme + the basic white scheme is easy to adapt if you want to lease an aircraft out,
GDFF is also in Jet2Holidays colours. No winglets being added to it though:

I much perfer the Silver livery on the 757 but the Jet2 Hoildays on the 757 looks bad. Jet2 Hoildays should be on the 738 and 733. The Silver on the 733 isn't great either realy only suits the 757.

757 Speedbrakes 7th Jan 2012 21:21

Bit of a shame they all have to look so different! Can't think of many airlines that do have 3 or 4 different paint schemes!

lbalad 7th Jan 2012 22:35

Personally,when Jet2 launched 9 years ago I thought their livery was fab.

Now I think the silver/grey scheme looks tired.I much prefer the Jet2holidays/Allegiant colours.Maybe it is time for a revamp?.

SWBKCB 8th Jan 2012 06:03

and? Does anybody chose which airline to spend their money on because of what colour the planes are painted?

enjoyflying 8th Jan 2012 13:03

I would, wouldn't want to fly on a Man UTD or Man City painted airplane lol:)

LBIA 8th Jan 2012 13:51

I understand that Jet2 have now also acquired Boeing 737-800's EC-HKR and EC-HJP which are both ex Air Europa machines like G-GDFF which is currently parked on the Multiflight apron at LBA with her new seats installed.

CabinCrewe 8th Jan 2012 13:54

....winglets ?

LBIA 8th Jan 2012 14:05

Quoting CabinCrewe

....winglets ?
I understand that EC-HKR has wing-lets while EC-HJP dose not.

Mr @ Spotty M 8th Jan 2012 14:13

LBIA
 
Are you sure of the airframes?
l understood all three ex Air Europa a/c were going to be without winglets, hence they would be based MAN for the summer.

LBIA 8th Jan 2012 14:49

I'm not 100% sure, but it did come from a very reliable source Mr @ Spotty M.

By way, Where did you hear that the aircraft without wing-lets were all going to be based at Manchester?

I guess we will just have to wait and see what turns up and happens next summer with jet2. This is a rumours forum after all.

CabinCrewe 8th Jan 2012 14:54

Would have thought at least one 738W would be at GLA

MKY661 8th Jan 2012 14:58


Any truth in the rumour that Norwegian Air Shuttle 737-300 LN-KKQ currently at Southend for overhaul/painting is to go to Jet2?
Indeed it is. Will be G-GDFG :)

Mr @ Spotty M 8th Jan 2012 15:33

LBIA
 
The reason l was told is performance issues out of GLA.

dwlpl 8th Jan 2012 15:33

With all this coming and going what will the fleet strength be?

LBIA 8th Jan 2012 15:38

See post 174 on page 9 off this jet2 thread dwlpl http://www.pprune.org/6933492-post174.html

Hope that's off help?

LEWIS APPLEBY 9th Jan 2012 11:17

Thanks MKY661

The first Jet2 to visit Southend in anger, other than for overhaul or painting, positioned in last night to operate todays Ford charter.

LBIA 23rd Jan 2012 14:19

Heard today that Jet2 have snapped up another Boeing 737-800. This is said to be 12 year old ex Thomson Airways, G-CDZI which has just been returned to it's leassor.

That is correct

BHD2BFS 23rd Jan 2012 20:51

no sign of any new summer routes for belfast? they have been very quiet there in the last few years

LBIA 29th Jan 2012 15:40

Hi


I understand that Jet2 have acquired a 2nd ex Norwegian Air Shuttle Boeing 737-3Y5, LN-KKC to be registered G-GDFH. She was built in 1993 and brand new to Air Malta.

BasilFawlty 29th Jan 2012 20:18

Yes, it's in BEG now for maintenance.

Also G-GDFB has been painted in Jet2 Holidays c/s and G-GDFG has been painted in normal full c/s.

Lsflyer 5th Feb 2012 10:03

Jet2 seem to be going all over at the minute. 757 due to return from recife in brazil tomorrow! anyone know what this was for?

Up up and away 5th Feb 2012 10:03

MAN-SZG
 
Is it usual for the above flight on a Saturday (LS933) to have two separate flights sharing the same code? MAN website shows one flight dep. at 10.35 and another dep. at 13.00.

Is it just an extra flight they have put on to satisfy demand?

I have to drop the in-laws off and just want to check they have given me the right time ;)

Thanks

Artie Fufkin 5th Feb 2012 10:32

lsflyer - I believe it was a charter for an oil company. (well, thats the cabin crew said :})

JKKne 5th Feb 2012 14:17

Does anybody idea what LS6276 is? It's departing NCL at 14.30 and arriving back at 15:00.

Is it a training flight or a NCL board error?

VentureGo 5th Feb 2012 14:22

It departed at 1504, then landed at 1520.!! source: Flightradar.

flybar 5th Feb 2012 14:57

'Flying without fear' flight. Jet2 seem to provide a lot of these flights for Virgin

JKKne 5th Feb 2012 18:27

I can't see 16 minutes being enough to conquer a fear of flying...

Mr @ Spotty M 5th Feb 2012 19:39

16 minutes is plenty.
What l have seen on TV about flights like this, is panic when the doors close or during take-off and landing.

righthandrule 5th Feb 2012 19:59

The whole point of the fear of flying courses are to successfully get people on the aircraft. Virgin run these courses in conjunction with Jet2 frequently and are always a huge success. The flight itself only last between 10-20 minutes. The aim is not to climb to 35,000 and cruise around for three hours. It is simply to get the door shut and the aircraft into the air.

All Jet2 charter flights have flight numbers LS2xxx or LS6xxx. The LS2xxx are charters that run on a frequent basis and the LS6xxx are the one off charters such as fear of flying or lapland trips. In response to 'up up and away's' post, are you sure it was not the LS2111 flight to Salzburg which runs on saturday afternoon for TUI?

There are some very interesting charters coming over the next few months, however I think the crew will agree that last weeks Brazil trip will take some beating!

VentureGo 5th Feb 2012 21:19

Actually landed at 15:18 so only lasted 14 mins! --LS6xxx, Guess it Was "Fear of Flying" Course. These are duration of One full day, with refreshments and guest speakers from Virgin culminating in Flight. Cost approx. 250 per day: Virgin Atlantic helps with your Fear of Flying

TSR2 5th Feb 2012 22:23

Sorry guys I can't resist .....

Jet2 ... geriatric aircraft ... perhaps these courses are designed to induce a 'Fear of Flying'

Only joking honest.

edi_local 5th Feb 2012 22:35

Spoken to a few people involved with these courses and apparently a lot of the people often only get as far as the gate and don't actually end up getting on the plane.

Seems like a lot of money to throw at something and then not go through with it in the end. If being surrounded by hundreds of other passengers in the airport who are just getting on with their flight as well as being reassured by professional and experienced staff still doesn't convince you then perhaps flying just isn't for you...

The96er 5th Feb 2012 22:52

I remember a few years ago Dispatching a Fear of flying flight operated by Jet2 on behalf of BA from MAN. As all the passengers boarded, the plane went Tech requiring disembarkation and re boarding the serviceable aircraft on the next stand. Needless to say, not as many re boarded the other aircraft !! :E

Surely that could have been dressed up as part of the course? :p

Write it off as saying it's just showing them how to cope with a technical fault, or a delay or say it's a chance for them to see a different aircraft type. :}

757 Speedbrakes 6th Feb 2012 12:38

The one thing you should never do is lie!!!! You don't have to go into all the details but lying will only make matters worse in the long run. Could you imagine if passengers found out? It'd spread like mad and be a PR disaster. There are some professions renowned for lying (laweys, estate agents et al) , thankfully pilots don't have that reputation - although it's been known on occasions, when they're off duty and at a bar!

Up up and away 6th Feb 2012 17:32

In response to 'up up and away's' post, are you sure it was not the LS2111 flight to Salzburg which runs on saturday afternoon for TUI?

I don't think so, I got this direct from the MAN website:

Flight Times from Manchester Airport to Salzburg, W. A. Mozart Airport
Book Now
Days
Dep. Arr. Airline(s) Flight
Number Validity M T W T F S S
10:35 (T1) 13:45 Jet2 LS933 04/02/12 - 03/03/12
13:00 (T1) 16:10 Jet2 LS933 11/02/12 - 18/02/12

Lsflyer 8th Feb 2012 09:59

There isn't 2 flights with the same number on that day. The schedule changes from the 11th onwards so the ls933 departs at 1 instead of 10.35 and changes to the 757. The way Manchester airport website has put it makes it look as though there are 2 but there's only one low cost one and one charter. Besides your parents will have the correct info on their tickets so go with what that says!
