I donít know, Iíd imagine itíll be out with Jet2 colours reapplied. There has been no mention about it leaving any time soon anywhere else.

Do we know if the A330s leases are permanently cancelled or temporary,if so until when? Also, anyone know if we can expect a more rapid 757 retirement now?

Probably until end of S20 at the moment as the A330 is scheduled to fly the NYC flights.

It had a C check recently and then required a repaint. It is staying in holidays livery and will be back in MAN or LBA in the next few days.

I suspect that NYC will not be happening this year. Just a feeling.

I have just been in correspondence with the hotel I am meant to be staying at in Mallorca from the 1st of may and been told that Jet2 have informed the hotel that the earliest flights will be starting back up is mid June yet the website still shows as flights available and going from May 1st. Can anybody shed any light?? I have a large group booking and constantly getting asked the question are we going, are we not, are we getting money back, are we not. I am aware the goalposts are moving on a daily basis but if they have made hoteliers aware they are not flying till mid June why are they still selling flights for May?

Jet2 like all airlines desperately need the cashflow to keep their business alive. While BA might be deemed a strategic asset for the UK, Jet2 management know the Govt will be much less inclined to bail out Jet2. Jet2 management might protest in public but know full well they need to be self-reliant

If Jet2 announce a flight is cancelled, people start demanding refunds and the cash balance in the bank declines rapidly taking Jet2 that bit closer to bankruptcy

757 G-LSAN remains at Norwich still, arrived for paint and entered the paint shop on arrival
reason she had to circle a few times on arrival was that the airport closes for 30 min and she was in the close time
so had to circle before landing
Pilot was not too happy as was not aware of this when departing Man

As a well run, well liked and profitable (normally) airline it is in a better position to raise cash itself and more likely to get Government help than Virgin for example. Also the UK will still need a company to take people on European holidays once this all over.

I can't see the government helping Jet2 and not Virgin. Virgin as an airline is more strategically important than Jet2 especially as it operates long haul scheduled flights from Manchester while Jet2 just takes Brits to the Med for the most part. I personally think that the government will help the UK aviation industry as a whole or not at all. I don't see them cherry picking airlines or airports.

I heard (third hand) a couple of days ago that Jet2 hasn't furloughed their pilots, and is still paying them their full salary. It is difficult to imagine they'd be doing this unless they are extremely flush with cash, and frankly with the government furlough scheme in place it would beggar belief if they weren't taking advantage of it to preserve the business whilst it is to all intents and purposes mothballed.

If the poster heard it third hand a few days ago, it was probably correct. Most pilots were only furloughed on the 31st of March - 2nd of April (base dependant). Some weren't (yet).

That makes absolute sense. I know Mr Meeson isn't exactly short, but to carry on paying full salaries in such uncertain times would be beyond generous.

At this stage earliest flights to resume mid-June, and sales suspended for operations prior to that (press article). However, should things change for the better (unlikely) then the start date can be brought forward.

Your refund will obviously take months to organise. All airlines are in the same boat. If the government/FCO extends the non-essential travel ban beyond 17th April you can claim on your travel insurance (providing it was purchased prior to COVID-19).

Could you advise me which routes apart from New York you deem as stategic?

Vegas is about as strategic as Alicante.
