Albania!!!

The96er 17th Apr 2017 22:05


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.
It's all peer pressure and male bravado - I've seen groups of lads getting out of a minibus outside the airport at 4:30am, all with a can of beer in their hand all trying to 'prove themselves' as men to one another.

More than likely now beyond economic repair.

No doubt to be broken as spares, will they fly it back to the uk unpressurised to one of the breakers yards?

garry8g 18th Apr 2017 18:54

Will 1 B757 less make a difference to their summer schedule? I know they had some standby, but may need to lease another aircraft for cover? Or source a replacement 757, or perhaps another 2nd hand B738?

Ladies and gents, I think all this speculation about the fate of Alpha India is premature. How about sitting tight and seeing what occurs ? I don't know about anyone else but I haven't seen any photographs of the damage to the aircraft, so on I'm in no position to come out with glib statements pertaining to buffing out, unpressurised flights to the breaker's yard and so on.

She flies into LBA tomorrow evening and appears to be staying for a couple of weeks at least. In other news, 'HY arrives from BFI at 0630 tomorrow.

I have seen photos and it wont buff out and it appears the pressure bulkhead is involved. I hope to be proved wrong, but when the value of the airframe versus the cost of repair is considered well who knows what the outcome will be?

Could be a job for Sycamore at MME then selling on the spare parts to Iceland Air.

Seems to have been delayed - no sign of it leaving Boeing Field.

Window seats Boeing 737-800
 
Does anyone know which rows do not have windows on the jet2 Boeing 737-800's? I'd be grateful for any advice!

Not sure on the LS ones specifically but there is only one windowless row on a 73H and that's around 11/12.

CCGE29 19th Apr 2017 19:59

Row 11 is the windowless row on the 738 (Y189 config).

Thank you!
Is there a reason you have 2 missing windows on the left and one on the right but only one row is without windows?

FRatSTN 19th Apr 2017 23:46

Looking as if both the ALC and PMI bases will each have 2 aircraft for S18

So TA may enter service before HZ.

Mooncrest 20th Apr 2017 22:29

DRTA flew her first commercial service for Jet2 this morning. Leeds to Faro and back.

There are 2 aircon riser ducts on the left side, but only 1 on the right.

Yes, she had a slight technical issue that Boeing couldn't fix in time before the crew went out of hours. She arrived at LBA at 0600 yesterday.

Pilot_7983 23rd Apr 2017 01:00

Flew EMA - CDG on G-CELG on Friday and I must admit, I was very pleasantly surprised at just how immaculate the aircraft is both inside and out. Having asked the pilot, he actually told me that he feels the newer fleet (thus far) provided them more complications than the older 733's - It'll definitely be interesting to see how long they keep it in service given its condition and what a pleasure it was to fly on.

Edit: I meant CELG not CELO, sorry!

Mooncrest 23rd Apr 2017 11:15

I didn't know Jet2 flew East Midlands to Paris. Leeds Bradford, yes, but EMA to CDG is a new one to me.

Pretty sure they've operated the route since 2014 ? Someone will correct me if not...

I believe it started after Flybe ended their EMA-CDG flights after themselves taking over the route from bmibaby.

FRatSTN 23rd Apr 2017 14:53

Jet2 started EMA-CDG in Summer 2014 originally but was cancelled in 2015.

It returned again only a month ago and was originally scheduled to operate right through Summer 2017 but the last flight is now today actually (23 April)... was hardly worth bringing it back at all in the end.

Not 100% sure if it's the reason why but if so, that would explain why the flight was so empty - must've been about 50 pax at most.

No idea why Jet2 brought it back unless there was a tie-in with holidays. EMA-CDG cannot be viable without good connections and through ticketing - especially to long haul - in Paris. Jet2's product and the terminal it uses at CDG cannot offer either. The glory days on the route are gone thanks to Eurostar's fairly competitive advance fares, not far off equivalent city-centre to city-centre journey times and same-station connections at St Pancras.

The 4th machine looks like it's a 'Holidays' one. Due in this evening, with all 4 going onto 2 rotations per day.
