G-DRTA is due to ferry from PMI today to NWI to complete its re-configuration from Air Europa to Jet2.com. Should be ready 1 month from now all being well.

G-DRTB should only be a few weeks behind it, (ex transaero EI-RUG, 17 years old, no winglets).

BOHEuropean 10th Mar 2017 10:29

Irishlad, previously reported that G-DRTB would be ex-D-AHFV and not ex-EI-RUG

Is D-AHFV still due for the airline? I see Jethro's lists this as maybe becoming G-GDHI but possibly cancelled?

LBIA 10th Mar 2017 11:43

After an inspection D-AHFV is no longer set to join the Jet2 fleet.

Hence they have decided to take up an option on EI-RUG instead.

EI-RUG flew into Shannon last night, assume return to flight maintenance following sitting in storage for 17 months.

The first one will be GJZHW tomorrow at 18:55, brand new jet2.com livery.

GJZHU will position on Tuesday at 17:55 - holiday livery.

The next 2 aircraft aren't due until the 26th and 27th April, planned to be GJZHP on the 26th and GJZHY which will have its first revenue flight at STN fresh from the factory and the hanger.

In other news GDRTA is due to enter service 21st April.

Does anyone which aircraft will be based at BHX from Thursday ?

chaps1954 26th Mar 2017 15:39

No 733 planned at MAN for summer but still 4 here at present but we are still in the winter programme for most flights until Easter when most of the ski flights finish (if there is any snow left)

2Planks 26th Mar 2017 16:03

Chaps, There was 2 foot of fresh snow on my balcony this morning at 2100m, so we will have plenty of snow till gone Easter, half expecting an e mail of 'powder in the Alps' from the ski airlines!

This might be one of the reasons they won the above award

Stag parties thrown off plane at Manchester Airport for 'disruptive behaviour'

Although their firm action is very welcome (I`m travelling with them next week) it does raise questions as to how these buffoons got past the gate staff. No doubt too frightened to challenge them. Thankfully the cabin staff had no such qualms, aircraft returned to stand, to$$ers off loaded, end of stag do`s x 2 apparantly :D:D

SWBKCB 15th Apr 2017 09:26

or maybe thought "I don't get paid enough to deal with this sort of crap" :=

paully 15th Apr 2017 09:55

Neither do the cabin crew!!

inOban 15th Apr 2017 10:04

It occurs to me that until these people have got on to the plane, they aren't committing an offence of endangering the a/c, for which the penalties are substantial. Until then it's breach of the peace, or drunk and disorderly. I would expect that the crew had been forewarned; the groups had basically been given enough rope to hang themselves, which they duly did.

To their great credit, Jet2 really do appear to have a no-tolerance toward these sorts of drunken, selfish idiots.

Forget the 22kg baggage allowance, this is one very good reason for flying with them.

JB007 16th Apr 2017 14:32

Very damaging tail-scrape with a B757 at ALC this week, during landing.

bjones4 17th Apr 2017 12:55

Would that be G-LSAI? Flew down from Leeds on the 10th and hasn't been seen since.

VickersVicount 17th Apr 2017 13:56

Tail scrapes on a high mounted 757 are very unusual...

Quite right, If it's 2 different parties then perhaps it wasn't a problem until they boarded. With alcohol involved then a group who is 'merry' at the gate could quite quickly become aggressive if challenged by another alcohol fuelled passenger once boarded.

I've seen a similar thing myself, on another airline, years ago when I used to be a gate agent for a handling agent. I think it was a flight to Mallorca. A stag do came to the gate, around 15 of them in the group. All of them had drank a fair bit, but the vast majority of them were fine, if not just a bit loud. The rep and cabin supervisor came to the gate and spoke to them, they agreed to quieten down, agreed no booze would be served to them and they boarded. That is apart from one guy who refused to accept he wouldn't be given booze onboard and lashed out half way down the jetty at a dispatcher and my (female) colleague. The other lads tried to calm him down, he didn't, in the end the flight left with the entourage onboard and the groom to be being taken away in handcuffs! :D

SWBKCB 17th Apr 2017 17:21

And of course the airlines (and the airports) are quick to say that "the safety of our passengers is our first priority" - if that was true, all airports and aircraft would be alcohol free zones.

Why?? why make airports and aircraft alcohol free zones. Most people enjoy a drink or 2 with no problem or threat to safety at all so why punish them. If people appear drunk at the gate just offload them and everyone would soon get the message. I'm fed up with punish them all for a few pricks attitude.

SWBKCB 17th Apr 2017 18:38

Who said anything about punishing anybody?

Merely pointing out the hypocrisy of Jet2 (and other airlines) who are quite happy to take the praise - "no-tolerance toward these sorts of drunken, selfish idiots" - when they contribute to creating the problem.

Mr Angry from Purley 17th Apr 2017 18:49

Did they do a United and "drag" the punters off....

inOban 17th Apr 2017 19:27

The amount they drink on the plane will be as nothing compared to the amount they had drunk before they arrived at the airport or drank while there. But of course the fees that the airlines are charged are subsidised by the airport's income from the retail concessions.

SWBKCB 17th Apr 2017 19:39

or more likely the airports have to maximise their revenue from bars etc because of the downward pressure on fees from airlines.

mockingjay 17th Apr 2017 19:43

Nasty capitalism, ey? I can remember bars in airports for as long as I can remember.

SWBKCB 17th Apr 2017 20:03

I have no problem with that, but there are more, larger one's now. My point is that no matter how slight the risk, it compromises safety and the airlines must be aware of this but still trot out the safety is our first priority line when it suits them.

One of these days there'll be an incident and half the pax will be too p*ssed to get off safely

Station_Calling 17th Apr 2017 20:45

SWBKCB...
 
...this was a return to stand. Therefore no alcohol had been served on the flight. This was all down to "pre-loading" at home, on the bus on the way to the airport, and at the airport.

There's no hypocrisy involved here - on the average flight Jet2.com operate a 2 drinks per person policy, and that is invariably 330ml cans of beer, 175ml bottles of wine, etc. They have drunk way, way more than that before they get near the aircraft.

This is true, but it will be down to the drinking before and at the airport, not on the aircraft. We just deal with the mess created by others.

At least get your facts right before spouting off.

Council Van 17th Apr 2017 21:25

I wonder which city in Europe has the most un pleasant prison's if one found it necessary to divert and off load an unruly passenger whilst en-route? Tirana perhaps, though I always thought Bucharest and Sofia might be quite rough.

Unfortunately we live in a country in which getting so drunk/high that you can not control your anger seems to be the norm for a growing number of our population.

I am always amazed how many people are in the bar at half past five in the morning at the airport, I can not think of many other things that I find so un-appealling as an alcoholic drink at that time of the day.
