EXS05__ are test flights, as noted above.

The flight numbers and suffix's are chosen so that the bean counters at Jet2 HQ can determine where the costs are going to.

I believe it goes something like this with suffix's in brackets:

LS031-039 Engineering positioners (E) - Planned Engineering, (R) - recovery for over-running mx etc
LS041-049 On the day recovery positioners (A)
LS051-059 (B) - Serviceability Flights, (H/K) - Positioning for C Check, post C Check flights
LS061-069 Charter positioners (C)
LS071-079 Weather diversion positioners (W)

Do Jet 2 use the PA31 for crew positioning also e.g. a full crew

Mooncrest 24th Jun 2018 10:23

G-IFIT's official 'job title' is Company Communications Aircraft so I expect she flies whoever and whatever, wherever and whenever. Jet2 also makes extensive use of one of the 'Apex' Beech 90s based at LBA.

Economies of scale.

With Cardiff and Exeter i don't think they could go in that large in the beginning 2 aircraft would be more reasonable unless they planned lot's of W pattern flights to other airports.

Agree on the points about Jet2 music. They come across very cheesy at times. As a former employee of theirs in Flight Ops, I think it just feels like they try too hard to push forward a certain image of themselves. Good brand to fly with, however.

I just wonder what the Focus Group was thinking when they got the idea for this tunelss tune and what "The Managment" was doing when they agreed.
Maybe Jet2 see themselves as for "Da Yoof" so its no surprise that said "Yoof" chooses Jet2 for its Stag Do's.

Anybody know who Jet2 are borrowing the B767 from later in the year, and where it will be based? Assume borrowed from Titan and based at STN?

Pprune isn't always the best place for aviation related matters it's usually a place to discuss topics!

If you want to be ahead of the game and read daily updates regarding the aviation industry you need to look elsewhere as in the excellent site ch.aviation or routesonline.

Those two websites are the first that I check every morning with Pprune probably being my 5th or 6th, that just goes to show how relevant those two sites are.

Now thats tasty. I quite like the BHX-KEF March timings. But on their Citybreaks website it says all seats are sold!! Go figure that one.
Oh, and it says REYKJAVIK on the website.

​​​​​​Thanks for the correction.
Doesnt alter the surprising fact thatvall seats appear sold.

awwdabaaby 18th Jul 2018 20:52

Think they all the same as Glasgow is the same, might take a day to amend it but maybe making people aware of the fact these are due to go on sale

Plane.Silly 19th Jul 2018 06:30

A friend has told me the Seat only sales went on Wednesday, but they have to run a few things which go overnight for them to be valid for CityBreaks.

Nevertheless, caught me well off guard with this one. Is this the 'toe-in-the-water' before a full schedule?

Jet2s Air Tanker A330s in Sunday rags.
 
Just read about how the terrible, very naughty, should be smacked on the bottom, Jet2 lease Air Tanker (aka UK Gov) A330s for "tourist" holidays.
It doesnt say what we should be doing with these unwanted aircraft instead.
Junk journalism at its finest.

Well if you read all that crap in the Dail Mail what do you expect. Do you think the RAF have given TC and Jet A330's for free?

Actually I came across the article via BBC rather than the Daily Liar.
I was tongue in cheek. Of course its right for Jet2 to pay for them like anyone other Lease arrangement. My point was - if they werent doing that for the "tourists" (shame on us) what WOULD they be doing? Nowt, I expect. I rather felt Jet2 were being made out to be the bad boys for daring to lease them from Gov.com rather than have them mouldering on an RAF station somewhere.
It's not as if it was NEW news either. Such is the quality of sunday journalism - most journalism probably.

Rutan16 22nd Jul 2018 12:21

Just the silly season .The MOS has its annual story of the Cyprus division without the back ground to what resulted in the Turkish military intervention.

Also am sure the Mail along with others were somewhat supportive of the PFI when it was muted and signed off as a way of you know earning the tax payer a nice little income on the side.




MKY661 22nd Jul 2018 15:49

Kind of old news but it appears Jet2 have seemed to have aquired most of the old T2 at ALC and they plan to turn it into a overseas Headquarters (In Spanish):

sixchannel 22nd Jul 2018 21:08

Could this be for Brexit purposes?

inOban 22nd Jul 2018 21:25

Possibly, but they already have a summer base there, including a 'hot spare' a/c I believe.

An increased base would of course allow them to access slots in UK airports when they are less busy. It would even allow them to offer flights to additional UK airports without opening a base there.

But of course it all depends on us not leaving the EU, at least not in any real sense.

5 new routes and new destination

Keflavik to

Birmingham
Glasgow
Leeds
Manchester
Newcastle

All Begins Feb 19 (special flights)

Only just over a week late with that one:}

castleford tiger 28th Jul 2018 10:15

Could someone confirm if this is correct.
LBA has a shortage of stands and airport is at full capacity early mornings for first run.

Heard JET 2 are looking at putting planes into Leeds arriving in the quiet 9/12 am slot.
Clearly these are flights in reverse and as such sleep out.

I am guess the biggest issue is the rest period for pilots is it 12 hours?

Having a crew drop into say Faro at 11.30 pm means that unless a second crew is there it cannot fly until midday.
So if you confirm its 12 hours a second crew has to be there.

They already have a summer base in Alicante where crew are based for the summer. It wouldn't surprise me if they established more precisely for the reason that they can operate at less slot-constrained times.

FTLs allow for 10 hours rest in a hotel away from base as long as the preceding duty wasn't over 10 hours in which case the minimum rest would be the length of the duty period.

Johnny [email protected] Pants 28th Jul 2018 13:39

The ALC base is a year round base, not just summer only. There is also a base in PMI which is summer only at the mo. Both of these bases operate flights in and out of the U.K. bases arriving and then departing in the quieter periods. There are also some 3 sector days from STN that see crews night stopping.

castleford tiger 28th Jul 2018 14:22

Thank you it certainly looks as it maybe in the planning stage then. With the company now bigger in terms of value ( market cap) than tcg they just have TUI to aim for.
Still screaming for a base in the SW. Bristol ? and South Coast.

Cant see Bristol having either the will or or capacity. Maybe Cardiff but are these too far south for a northern based comany and without sufficient catchment?

Jet2 isn't really a northern company anymore and as far as catchment goes i think it depends on the size of the base. I'd be surprised if they didn't base at BRS in the future and would love it if they based at CWL.

The UK market alone isn't big enough to get anywhere near the market cap. of the ridiculous size of Global TUI which is where TUI Airways really benefits.

The employees involved should be placed on performance improvement programs and 'managed out' of the company rather sharply.

You obviously havent had the dubious pleasures of Menzies, on behalf of Easyjet at Liverpool. As has been said handling company, at a seasonal airport and operating in different languages.

menzies don’t handle Easyjet at Liverpool, It’s a dedicated opetation from smart handling (swissport, previously servisair). Omniserve provide PRM assistance and have a really good reputation.

I travel a lot. One thing I have noticed over the past few years is the increasing number of passengers claiming they need special assistance when it is doubtful. Like they need a wheelchair at the departure airport but not at the arrival airport where there is no sign of disability. Is their behaviour acceptable?

u have to be careful about this, special assistance isnt really disability, vertigo and other medical conditions can warrant special assistance.
