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.

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):

Could this be for Brexit purposes?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Outrageous behaviour:

http://news.sky.com/story/boy-10-asked-to-prove-disability-for-jet2-flight-11459188

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

Disgusting carry on!

Think that they may be employees of the local handling company!

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 donít handle Easyjet at Liverpool, Itís 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.
