LEEDS APPROACH 6th May 2017 22:24

I talk purely in terms of actual landing (or departing) flights per week. I would hope that you are right about capacity increasing. There is a net gain of 3 extra landings per week in high Summer compared with 2017 high Summer wherever the aircraft may be based. I hope like you that there is more to come!

I agree a 737 800 is too big for AMS, CDG, DUS etc just as it was too big for Lubeck, Madrid, Geneva, Sardinia and Toulouse etc from LBA. Just as an ATR42 is too big for Cork. Where LBA is geographically located means that millions upon millions of LBA's own catchment population, many living within a few miles of the airport are jumping straight onto the motorway or trans pennine express and using a different airport. I know you love LBA, LBIA just like me, but you simply cannot put off your immediate catchment population from using you and still be a successful airport that makes best use of its potential.

Can you imagine how many based LS aircraft there would be at an airport that was located to not just keep its own catchment but encourage neighbouring catchments to easily get to the airport - I would suggest double what would be based at LBA next year.

Will the Düsseldorf service be withdrawn completely or just limited to its peak which I would expect to be sort of September to January? There'll be far more money to be made flying a 738 to PMI than DUS in July

Seljuk22 7th May 2017 09:13

Hi, with all this new routes being announced anyone has an overview which/how many aircrafts will be based at each base next summer?

skyloone 7th May 2017 19:05

Anyone know how many new 738's still to arrive from the now 34 I believe and where they might be going. I gather a few 733 replacements with two extra for both BHX, STN and maybe another couple for LBA?

inOban 7th May 2017 19:21

They announced that one will be going to EDI for S18.

BFS BHD 7th May 2017 19:28

Seljuk22 - Belfast will be 3x B733 and 1x B738 for S18.

skyloone - Belfast gets one for Winter 17/18 and Summer 2018.

inOban 7th May 2017 19:46

Seljuk 22. I assume that EDI will go from 2 738 + 4 733 to 3+4, and they announced enough additional destinations/higher frequencies/longer season to justify this; but they also said that the total number of seats would rise by only 9%, which doesn't match. Maybe another poster can explain.

BasilFawlty 7th May 2017 19:47

It seems ALC is going from 2 733 to 2 738 at the end of this month, anyone who can confirm that? Would make more sense indeed to have 738 equipment as back-up, rather than 733's.

Bam Thwok 8th May 2017 04:54

Yep...... ALC going to 2 738's by the end of June now.
A particular "capacity issue" put the deployment back a month.

Hi gsky, did you have a good flight.

This article gives some idea of the fleet allocation for 2018 summer:

I see the A330 leased from AirTanker has been painted into the Jet2 red titles livery. Will the aircraft be crewed by Jet2 or AirTanker?

Thanks

paully 15th May 2017 21:14

Apparantly cabin crew will be Jet2 and flight deck will be Air Tanker..Thats the plan anyway

Nantucket Sleighride 16th May 2017 09:02

A330 due into Manchester later today on Delivery (Via BHX)

jackjak 16th May 2017 14:35

I'm flying on the A330 to Tenerife in June. I'm guessing the cabin is just standard AirTanker and Jet2 are not adding their red and grey seat colours, like how Thomas Cook refitted the cabin for G-VYGK.

Thanks

Jack

LAX_LHR 16th May 2017 14:39

I believe the A330 will have Jet2 seats.

mikkie4 16th May 2017 14:59

compton3bravo 16th May 2017 15:02

Isn't there a Titan B757 thrown in the mix?

BasilFawlty 16th May 2017 15:55

Only in July and August.

Any chance they will use the Air Tanker A330 for the New York trips ??

BasilFawlty 16th May 2017 19:48

No, as the A330 will be returned to Air Tanker after the summer season.

Provided, of course, the AirTanker contract isn't extended into the winter. Not terribly likely, granted, but you never know.

Air Tanker want/need GL and GM back for the winter for potential ACMI work lined up.

EK77WNCL 16th May 2017 23:12

Wow! It must be a cold day in hell for Newcastle being second only to Manchester by number of charters, and with a wider range of destinations!

Good news! I like! Now I just need to choose one

cheesebag 17th May 2017 14:20

Pretty sure the 330 was around BHX testing a couple of days ago

compton3bravo 17th May 2017 16:44

New route from Birmingham to Bergerac. I do hope all this rapid expansion is not going to end in tears. There are only a finite number of people who wish to fly for holidays, VFR, etc. Something or somebody has got to give it is not a bottomless pit.

LAX_LHR 17th May 2017 16:48

Where is BHX-EGC showing? Looked at booking engine, GDS and timetable but no such route showing, just MAN/LBA?

BHX5DME 17th May 2017 19:57

Bergerec
 
Jet 2 have announced MAN-Bergerec

BHX too ???

JB007 18th May 2017 10:54

Only in July and August
01st July until 30th September...

garry8g 18th May 2017 12:20

The A330 started flying this morning from Manchester, currently doing LS891 to Lanzarote and return. A few days earlier than planned?

That will make a right mess of pre-booked seats
