Maybe a bit spotter' ish, but i have just booked a Jet2 holiday today going on the 8th May for a week to Bodrum from EMA, does anyone know what aircraft type this would be on ?

Never done Jet2 before, so quite excited really.

Currently programmed as a 737-800.

The Blackpool ac may be one of the 733Ws which have a lower fuel burn and therefore a better range. Just a thought.

Mike16 10th Apr 2014 18:16

Thank you very much , i was hoping for a 757 :(

Flying Wild 10th Apr 2014 20:04

The 757 have moved and the majority are based at LBA and MAN now. With two at NCL.

LiamNCL 10th Apr 2014 22:22

757s at NCL aswell

Have jet2 managed to leave themselves short of aircraft for the next few days with 2x Boeing 757-200's G-LSAC & G-LSAK doing the New York shopping trips?

As I see Titan Airways, Boeing 757-200, G-POWH is operating today's Manchester-Arrecife service...

Many crossed fingers in "handbrake house" that nothing goes tech!

EK77WNCL 17th Apr 2014 21:22

Might it not make sense perhaps for them to time the shopping trips so the aircraft can come straight back? The first and last trip would still have 1 aircraft away for 3-4 days but the others wouldn't

LBIA 17th Apr 2014 21:56

But then you have the added extra costs off 2x empty trans Atlantic flights to pay for

EK77WNCL 18th Apr 2014 00:26

Yeah after I thought my plan through I realised it would be too complicated if you had say 1 aicraft fly out to New York from Leeds, and 3 days later an aircraft operating NCL-EWR-LBA for the Leeds return... But you still have a 757 stuck in EWR, unless more flights were added, but then you need 1 more 757!

So... Not worth it really.

They needed to schedule them for early July so they could bring a bunch of Americans over for the Tour de France.

EK77WNCL 18th Apr 2014 12:47

They are only bookable as return packages from the UK now though.

Mike16 20th Apr 2014 18:17

I must say i am very impressed with Jet2, i have a vacation booked with them to Bodrum going out 8th May from EMA, and just booked my seats going out and back and only 34.oo.

Does EMA not have a 757 any more ? if not, they did use to have one didn't they ?

Also would the AC i be on be one of the jet2 ones or a holiday covered logo one ?

I use to be cabin crew at EMA years ago, so out the industry now, and i must admit i am quite looking forward to my Jet2 experience.

So by looking at earlier replies i am on a 738 ?

Sean Dillon 20th Apr 2014 18:39

No 757's at EMA anymore! And both 757's will be leaving NCL at the end of this summer too!

CabinCrewe 20th Apr 2014 19:53

...some of them are not far off 27 years old so its maybe no bad thing if your looking for modern fuel efficiency. Although if I remember last summer it was the 737's that caused most of the maintenance headaches!

Lord Spandex Masher 20th Apr 2014 20:07

The 757 beats both the 737-300 and 800 in terms of fuel efficiency per passenger per mile.

How does it beat the B738 which is a generation younger and and which airlines are replacing B757s with? I don't understand that.

Oh my, is this confirmed? First BY then MT and now LS - Not looking good at all.

Purely in fuel efficiency terms the 757s (even without winglets) have a lower fuel burn per Km than the 800s.

I guess the 800 is cheaper to buy and maintain.

Ian Brooks 20th Apr 2014 21:56

B757s are now rapidly reaching the time when they become expensive to operate due their reliability
