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?

Marcus Absent 2nd Jul 2018 09:49

767? Where has that ruour come from.

It’s on CH-Aviation but behind a pay wall

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.

Keflavik is the main airport for Reykjavik

​​​​​​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?

Garstag 19th Jul 2018 09:15

G-DRTE is now in Leeds
G-DRTF is now in Manchester

Both ready to enter service.

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.
