'HL' in Holidays Livery (seems appropriate) according to Planefinder.

G-JZHZ is on it's way from Seattle, due into LBA on Saturday morning!

Jet2_320 2nd May 2017 19:34

Anybody any idea how long this B757 will be grounded for?

Incident: Jet2.com B752 near Amsterdam on May 2nd 2017, fuel leak

Looks like one of the new B737-800 planes has gone tech in Las Palmas tonight - G-JZHV.

G-CELK currently on route from Alicante, due into Las Palmas at 00:49, to operate LS144 return flight to Glasgow, with a 4hr delay.

Might be a few left behind, if flight is full, as its a 300 not 800 series.

All airlines have aircraft go tech. Just wondering why suddenly people feel the need to mention Jet2 ones. As with several other threads running at the moment for different airlines I can't help feeling some posters just cannot let go of things past in their hidden agendas!

LBIA 3rd May 2017 21:13

New route just been put on sale for summer 2018 from Leeds

La Rochelle = 1x weekly Saturday.

No hidden agenda from me!
Just a comment that it is the first of the new aircraft to do so. It was only an observation....nothing sinister.

Am I right in thinking that this is a return having operated it for 1 or 2 seasons a while back?...either way very welcome and an interesting route into France without much competition although very attractive to visitors and second home owners in the region:ok:

LiamNCL 4th May 2017 07:54

JZHV is back on home soil now anyways drama over :ok:

inOban 4th May 2017 09:10

La Rochelle is more typical for Flybe. Doesn't look like a Jet2 market.

Council Van 4th May 2017 09:27

Whilst Benidorm, the Canaries etc for the sun booze and a fry up breakfast is a big part of the Jet2 market they are also moving towards high quality holidays.

https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&so...TWZ4ppr4K4W6vg

Including Indulgent Escapes.

I always thought the coast line looked fantastic when nipping up from Bordeaux to Nantes on late summer evening's. To the Noth the Britany Peninsular also looks amazing, Cornwall without Crowd's?

Neither did Stansted as Cook's and Tui found out to their cost..

inOban 4th May 2017 10:16

I know thousands of Brits holiday in NW France every year, but generally a) they drive and b) they stay in campsites or in gtes. I'm not sure what you would do there without a car.

Wycombe 4th May 2017 10:25


I'm not sure what you would do there without a car.
Hire one!

I've done fly-drive and drive (towing the home on wheels) to that part of the world many times. Nice towns (Les Sables, St. Gilles, La Rochelle itself, Benodet, Quimper, Concarneau - last 3 a bit further north in southern Brittany) and great beaches, countryside.

Packed with Brits, Irish, Dutch, Germans (and a few French) during the Summer hols.

RYR and EZY aswell as BEE fly to LRH if I'm not mistaken from various points.

compton3bravo 5th May 2017 06:39

Could not agree more about the comments about La Rochelle and its surrounds. Did not see many Brits when been there - yippee! - but try to avoid late July to end of August Paris by the sea uggh! Probably Jet2 got a deal from the local Chamber of Commerce investing in tourism.

However, it might not be tech at all, perhaps something else caused it not to be operational???

Didn't Jet2 used to fly there? I'm sure they were around when I visited around 2010.

I think i remember an EDI and LBA double drop a few years back

compton3bravo 5th May 2017 08:43

I do hope it wasn't too painful!

4Screwaircrew 5th May 2017 09:33

I operated there for Jet2 as far back as July 2009 from EDI.

LBIA 5th May 2017 09:40

Jet2 use to operate both Leeds & Edinburgh to La Rochelle once weekly Saturdays using Boeing 737-300 on a w-leg patten.

LBA-LRH-EDI-LRH-LBA

Also a Boing 737-300QC use to do a weekly Saturday afternoon Olbia double drop service operating

EDI-LBA-OLB-LBA-EDI

Mooncrest 5th May 2017 10:10

I certainly remember Jet2 operating from Leeds to La Rochelle in the past and the shared Olbia/Edinburgh. I'm certain the other French flight Leeds shared with Edinburgh was Avignon.

gsky 5th May 2017 10:14

B757.
 
anybody know what B757 scheduled to operate LS759 tmrw MAN-MAH?

Yeah Leeds use to have Jet2 flights to both Avignon and Toulouse as well.

BFS BHD 5th May 2017 19:31

Is G-GDFM B737-300 still in the fleet? Hasn't appeared on FR24 in a while. Is it on a 'C' check?

The route trace on FR24 makes interesting viewing.

3h25m en-route so far and just passed Oxford northbound!

LEEDS APPROACH 6th May 2017 21:13

Huge Jet2 increases from some airports for high Summer '18 whereas LBA, as I write has gained about 3 flights per week [net] to the Med. in August. Losing Dusseldorf after many many years of year round service and further reduction to Amsterdam in high Summer. Can't help feeling LS's HQ on the hill is now saturated for routes that are yield viable from one of Europe's most pilfered catchment areas.

LBIA 6th May 2017 21:52

Actually Leeds will grow next year from 11+ operational aircraft to 13+ operational.
Lots of extra capacity been added on the med routes. Plus LBA sees quite a few flights been operated by either the ALC or PMI based aircraft.
As expected, With further B737-300's been gradually withdrawn the city routes eg AMS, CDG, & DUS will most likely dissappear as the B738 is just to big.

summer 2017
4x B733
4x B752
3x B738

Summer 2018
3x B752
4x B733
6x B738

BasilFawlty 6th May 2017 22:17

AMS would be a shame, as it's their first ever route.
