Keep peddling Jet2ers £8.20 this morning, Phillip
Will be pleased!

They've already got the ex-Monarch hangar which can accommodate 3 aircraft. Why need a second one?
At the rate they're growing, they may need it in the not too distant future.

Also it could potentially keep the competition from expanding too. They may want to base lots of frames there, and a maintenance hanger would work well for them...not if Jet2 snap it up first

Another ex Transaero B737-800 due this week making 3 in total.

BHX
 
With yesterdays announcement of even more expansion at BHX this summer is this linked to Busters post above on the 26th?

The 9th aircraft starts with West Midlands school holidays which sometimes can indicate a short-term lease to cover the peak period but in this instance is this aircraft actually based at BHX (or elsewhere) all summer as an operational spare but pressed into regular service on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday?

I have checked the seat-map for one of the new flights and it is standard 189.

It looks like the extra aircraft is coming from Boeing.

Flying at the minute Fri - Sat -Sun and Mon and likely to be standby tue wed and thu to cover maintenance.

Friday - LS1241 BHX - HER 0855/1300 1350/1815
Saturday - reshuffle of a few flights to add a rotation to RHO and CFU.
LS1283 BHX - RHO 1235/1645 1745/2210
LS1213 BHX - CFU 1535/1905 2005/2335
Sunday - LS1263 BHX - MAH 0710/0945 1030/1305
LS1283/4 BHX - RHO 1305/1710 1800/2335
Monday LS1273 BHX - ZTH 1015/1355 1440/1830

All time in Zulu

Ex-Transaero B737-800 positioned Teruel-QLA this afternoon, presumably destined for Jet2.

Does anyone on here know the current fleet exit plan for the 733 - what and when?? Assume it won't be this side of the summer now?

EI RUH will become G-DRTF
EI RUI will become G-DRTE

Can anyone tell me if Boeing 737 800s will operate Leeds - Berlin at all soon. Also I have noticed that the flights in both directions always seem to fly at 29,000 feet flight level. Is that a regular occurrence? If so why?

LBA-SXF is down as a 733 all year. The 733 has a lower cruise altitude than a 738 and due to the short distance 29,000 is the optimum altitude for that aircraft on that route so thats why you will see FL290 more often than not.

Chesty Morgan 9th Mar 2018 23:03

The question was why it was the same level in both directions! If it is, I’ve flown it a few times and cannot remember if it is the case, I suspect it is just an exception to the semicircular rule which occurs here and there.

Why wouldnt it fly at FL290 in both directions ? There isnt much need to go higher into more crowded airspace for such a short flight.

He's not pointing out that it is relatively low, he is pointing out that this is a exception to the Semi-Circular Rule.

Imagine two aeroplanes flying in opposite directions at the same level along the same airway. Thatís why, generally, they wouldnít.

Nah, I’m not having that. I don’t know the reason that it was at FL290, but that most definitely would not be the most optimum level to cruise at in a B733 for a flight of that distance. We regularly used to operate theANS to LBA at FL360.

A320.b744 11th Mar 2018 14:41

Not wishing to drag this out, but from the data I can see from the last few weeks, LS471 LBA-SXF is flown at FL290, but the return LS472 SXF-LBA is flown at either FL300 or FL320. I can find no record of the flight being flown at FL290 in both directions.

G-CELE/O/Y G-GDFG/L/M have all operated LBA-SXF at FL290 the last many weeks

Return leg is usually at FL300

But whatever it is FL290 seems to be the preferred altitude for that sector at least.

Anyone know when Summer 2019 will go on sale?

Last year it was in early April.
