Anyone know why there is a jump in the reg's from F to N. Are the ones in between reserved for the remaining new builds due.

They are reserved for the other 8 2nd hand B737-800 that have been acquired, due before summer 19. The aircraft allocated 'N' just happened to arrive first.

Perhaps after 6 months in store at SOF, the Owners, lease comany GECAS might have bitten Jet2s hand off as they say, and so it arrived before any others. Also i would imagine Jet2 not wanting it languishing around those parts over a long, cold Winter so did the Deal quickly.
I'm assuming, of course, that Jet2 bought it, not leased it.

According to G-INFO, it is owned by Dart Group.

What's Jet2 scheduling like over winter? Being taken on a 'surprise' winter break to Canaries in January with J2. Flights from NCL but the Mrs(?) isn't letting on times/place we're going to.

I hope she's bought the ring.....

Chesty Morgan 5th Oct 2018 16:28

Itís a surprise surely you canít expect us to ruin it for you?! :p

The current Mrs nonfrequentflyer_NCL sounds like a "keeper"! Lucky boy, you.
Enjoy.

I knew I could rely on you chaps/esses. I must polish up my ways of digging for info.....:ok:

ssflyer 5th Oct 2018 22:02

Just use the Jet2 website with NCL as the UK airport and Spain as the country and do a dummy booking and the available Canaries flights will show.
Looks like three airports depending on day of departure-FUE,LPA and ACE
I was going to stay stum but it is so Simples
Have a great trip

Jet2 - so why LS flight numbers?
 
I know I'm going to regret this, but my very little grey cells have been trying to think why Jet2, Callsign Channex and ICAO code EXS have 'punters' flight numbers that start LS.
Ta, ever so.

D'oh!!
Many thanks. Never was any good at crosswords or those anagram thingys.
I'd have got it if it'd been CE. ;-)

deltahotel9 6th Oct 2018 09:25

I always thought the flight codes were LS because their base was Leeds and the postcode for Leeds is LS?

Mooncrest 6th Oct 2018 10:10

The LS designator was for Channel Express long before the Jet2 days.

Using a car analogy, wouldnt it depend on when their M.O.Ts were due and what was needed to keep them safe and efficient until their next major check?
FWIW, E, H, V, and X are all shown on Jethro's as 'fr disposal Winter 18/19'
Nothing mentioned for Y, which is similar age - 2004ish.

GCELH is currently being retired as we speak before being flown to QLA on Monday.

GCELX is due to perform its last flight on the 4th Nov and will start the retirement process on the 5th.

GCELV will retire shortly after this on the 7th/8th November

GCELO will retire around the 22nd November.

EDI is confirmed all B738 base by mid December and NCL will be also all B738 by end of April. This will only leave EMA, BFS and LBA with the 300ís for summer 2019.

As always in aviation nothing is 100% confirmed until it actually happens however this is the plan at the minute.

Great info,Irishlad06
That just leaves E and Y from the GCEL 300 series. They've served Jet2 well.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I heard G-CELE was going in Win18/19, not CELO?
