Hi all, Flying with Jet2 MAN - PMI LS831 in September the original seat plan was 42 rows (B757) but has now changed to 39 rows, I have looked on seat guru but it does not show any Jet2 aircraft with 39 rows anybody any idea which aircraft it will be?
Thanks in advance.

A321 (ie stretched A320) perhaps, assuming the seat map shows a single aisle narrowbody rather than a twin aisle widebody

A321
 
Apologies if I've missed it but what's the fate of the A321s now? Surely a sub fleet of two ain't viable? Are they intending to eventually get the other 5 or just the current two? (P.S. what's the status of the other 321, HLYG?)

GHLYG went back to lessor along with GHLYA - they are both parked in SNN. As far as I know one of them will come to Jet2 but not until the winter at the earliest. They are only planning on having 2 of them going forward for a little until the current situations stabilises.

One of them is flying at the moment (mainly TFS it seems)

Plus regular flights to ALC and PMI.

Is that inside knowledge or just a hunch they will come in winter?

Are the A321s both going to be based at Manchester or will there be one at Birmingham as originally planned?

Is jet2 selling flights to full seat capacity? Reason I ask is that I was told they were only selling 33% of seats to ensure social distancing. Is that correct?

I find that hard to believe, it simply wouldn't be viable to operate at the price people would be willing to pay.

Flights are being sold at 100% capacity as in most airlines. The mandatory mouth mask (they are quite strict as to what is allowed and qualifies as an acceptable mouth covering) basically negates the need for social distancing while on board.

they have kept flight deck to crew two aircraft and it is showing in the booking system from end of oct. Obviously all subject to change.

likely based at MAN - what would be the point in having one at each base. Engineering / spares - increased cost. That is a hunch

Well I've had a e-mail this morning cancelling my EDI -ACE flight in September, and I see its looking like they have cancelled their EDI departures for the rest of the year.
To quote the e-mail,
"We're sorry that due to the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak your holiday is no longer going ahead as we are operating a reduced flying programme this summer. Please see below for your affected booking(s)."
Thats the second Jet2 cancellation for me this year

Can I ask what day of the week this was due to be or your flight number? Jet2 website still shows 3-4 weekly flights EDI-ACE in September.

I believe so. HLYF/G are certainly the only two officially registered on FR24.

LS737 22nd Jul 2020 14:18

D on't think G is joining

Certainly more than 33% full on our flight to Zante last week, over 3/4 full with most of the space in one area.

They are cancelling flights still but condensing it seems so instead of 4 times a week to X they are flying 2 or 3 times.

Got to say the service etc was exemplary on the way out and pretty much normal life in resort and on the flight apart from the mask when travelling on plane or bus.

Sunday 6th September ,15.20 depart flight LS705.
Edited; I've just rechecked , the is a bookable flight on the 5th , but I notice the hotel I was booked to is no longer shown, and the remaining hotels are at the top end of the range ( that is if there is a top end in Costa Teguise ;) )
