VV's point is that there is still time for the legacies and EZY and RYR to take out the medium sized players such as MON and LS, not LS vs MON.
Completely agree. In 2030 the UK airline scene will be IAG, FR, EZ and son-of-Flybe.

If you mean easyjet U2 not EZ

Let's hope Jet2 will react to the potential of MON closing EMA & LBA in their restructuring assessment of S15! (See Monarch thread!)

"Jet2 have had a remarkable rise despite the profit warnings this year. I think they will probably continue at the same level for many years. But long haul would be a step too far. Like previously stated, they're doing what an other airlines are not doing and that's making money."

Share price on a gentle slide though. Has jet2 lost it's way?

I don't think so. I do remember seeing an article in early July about the sudden huge drop in Jet2's share prices. If I remember correctly, I'm pretty sure it was in regards to Jet2holidays. Clearly this is a side of the market where they make quiet a bit of money.

Jet2’s parent company has seen its shares plunge on the London Stock Exchange after warning about “less buoyant” holiday sales.

Dart Group, which owns the Leeds-based airline and tour operator, has issued a profits warning today as it admitted that pricing in the leisure market has been “weak”.

The announcement sent Dart’s shares plunging by up to 29% from yesterday’s closing price of 2.51 per share to as low as 1.78 in early trading in London.

The company warned that demand for holidays this summer has been “less buoyant than we hoped for” despite the company enjoying a 30% rise in operating profits during its last financial year.

Chairman Philip Meeson said: “In relation to the current financial year, we are finding demand for leisure travel, this summer, to the markets we serve, less buoyant than we would have hoped for and market pricing weak.
Some years, when the World Cup is on especially, a lot of companies, on the holiday side of things, tend to struggle. Of course, EZY and FR don't tend to struggle anywhere near as much because of they're massive operation, in comparison with LS, and they've got different operations and bases running in different parts of Europe too. But I would be interested to see how TCX and TOM do too.

But going back to previous topics in this thread, in my opinion, this proves exactly why LS shouldn't go into long haul. They should be keeping their financial reserves for times like these. I would imagine they would make most of their money with Jet2holidays on long haul and they're saying the market can be weak and buoyant at times then surely they'd never be stupid enough to take the risk?

Even Ryanair have had to issue a couple of stock market profits warnings in the recent past, unprecedented, but that`s why they are trying to be cuddly and friendly:*

Jet 2 have a game plan, still run by the original team that set them up, have firm (not to everyones liking I know) management but are not likely to stick their head in the clouds anytime soon. If they went long haul it would be because the business plan called for it. If it doesnt they won`t.

As for share prices, well lots of people make money out of them, so manipulation in one way or another is the name of the game. Buy while they are cheap, I think their price will go higher

I hope not :{ They've certainly loaded and started selling flights from there for Summer 2015.

Darts current share price is undoubtedly lower than it was but its pretty much in line with the falls across the sector (RYR and TUI are the exceptions). If you take todays price (BBC) against the 12 month high and express it as a percentage here are the results:

Ryanair 88%
TUI 80%
IAG 73%
Flybe 71%
Easyjet 69%
Dart 68%
T Cook 63%

Of course stats over 12 months can hide an awful lot as they are but a snapshot in time - the only point I would say with some certainty is that the UK (and Irish) air travel companies have taken a hit recently

I see on social media that Tunisia is a new destination for East Midlands for Jet2 wonder what other airports will have this route. Nothing is on sale on Jet2s website. :)

Wonder if they have looked at Gibraltar for a summer season..It was building nicely for BMi Baby before their demise from East Midlands

Looks like Jet2 has made up their minds regarding the likelihood of Monarch still being at LBA beyond next April. If they're wrong there will be a real glut of seats available, which will be good for nobody - except the punters!

Looks like a PR stunt didn't go quite as planned today for J2!!

Jet 2 757 Seating capacity
Dear members,

I am carrying out some private study on bjv and dlm flights.

The reason I'm contacting is to ask how many seats do the jet 2Boeing 757's have,
Also are they different capacities?

I was told these have 235 seats but however on planespotters.net this shows 229 & 232.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Alasdair adam

GVACMF 22nd Aug 2014 19:29

There was a few 757's which were 229Y, I belive all are now 235Y.

All times are GMT. The time now is 14:38.
