Jet2 4
In answer to previous post about G-GDFA being retired it has flown today to
Malaga so looks as if it may be used as an airspare until end of season as this
is it`s first flight for 7 days

Looking forward to the new 737-800's coming this winter, should do good for their expansion at MAN but i have heard only one of the new 3 will be based at MAN. Dont know wheather they will have normal Jet2 titles or Jet2Holidays titles.

Trying to get my head around the situation with the 737-800s.

How many do they have in service at the moment and where are they based? My understing is two are heading north to Glasgow with the other(s) heading to Manchester.

Glasgow has somewhat of a limited winter flying programme this winter and was therefore wondering if they had already based an aircraft there?

The NG's will be a great addition to the fleet.


MKY661 14th Oct 2011 20:23

There are currently 2 in the fleet with 3 more due in December

MKY is correct, 2 in service at the moment, both at MAN. MAN will have 3 based units next year with GLA having 1 or 2. Depending how many join, plans for 2/3 at the moment.

Booked a holiday for next June, destination Malaga from Leeds Bradford and seat plan shows a lot of 3-2 with a seat on its own behind each 2 . What does all that mean or am I losing the plot. Not sure it is B737 or 757

TSR2 15th Oct 2011 19:18


Just checked two seperate dates in June and both show 3-3 configuration of a B733.

CAA grounds jet 2 757
Anyone know know why? aircraft being repaired by monach at MAN by all accounts

LBIA 18th Oct 2011 17:31

I hope that's not true that the CAA have grounded the aircraft..

I guess it makes more sense for Jet2 to have there Manchester based 757 aircraft repaired/fixed by Monarch engineering instead parking it up at Leeds.

There is no room at Multiflight for another 757 sized aircraft at the moment. This is due to G-LSAE still be repaired by Boeing, After her little incident last month with the Wheelchair lifter.

Monarch ain't fixing the 757 at man jet2 just using the hanger.

Mr @ Spotty M 19th Oct 2011 15:59

Well that is funny jonathan78, because they were fixing it originally, but l bow to you greater knowledge that Jet2 engineers have taken over.
The original defect found by the CAA was sorted by the MAEL AOG team, they also found some damage while rigging the L2 door.
MAEL's structures engineers then approached Boeing, as repair was not covered by a standard SRM repair.
So maybe the Jet2 engineers are carrying out the Boeing repair. :ok:

Topspotter 19th Oct 2011 16:02

Beg to differ, according to a member of our aviation group who works for jet 2 the damage was so bad jet 2 did not have the capability to repair it where as monach have boeing approval for this type of work

Mr @ Spotty M 19th Oct 2011 16:12

So it looks like MAEL are doing the whole thing then?

Topspotter 19th Oct 2011 16:21

Appears so, something to with monarch having special boeing approval for complex repairs where as jet 2 dont, and because the CAA found the damage and grounded to plane i suppose jet 2 have got to get it done correctly

Curious Pax 19th Oct 2011 16:30

Any indication of where the next 738s are coming from?

INKJET 19th Oct 2011 16:34

MAEL are the specialist in this type of work and makes sense for them to do it, I guess Jet2 acquired the aircraft in this state, but it should have been picked up because some one will have to pay to put it right, is it an owned airframe, the other concern is they will be now on the CAA radar

jonathan78 19th Oct 2011 19:42

My mistake I was told by an engineer at work that jet2 engineers were fixing it, I do no some of the engineers from Leeds went to look at it

757 Speedbrakes 19th Oct 2011 19:42

Which airframe is it?

LBIA 19th Oct 2011 20:18

G-LSAA is the aircraft that's in the Monarch hanger at Manchester while G-LSAE is at Multiflight at Leeds reciving treatment from Boeing.

Also it looks as though G-LSAK which is on lease to RAK Airways until May next year has gone tech somewhere. As Manchester based G-LSAC positioned out last night and has been covering its work today.
