Curiousity now well and truly piqued.
Not routes or not BRS/CWL?

Been looking at the rest of the web page, which leads me to doubt the validity (on top of the previous comment of this being a wiki page which anyone can edit.

In the Fleet Section, they state the last 3 of the 8MG's, but they also suggest a merger with Air Tanker for the 3xA330's. Pretty sure that would go down like a lead baloon.
The worst bit is that they suggest 2x B753's from Condor. :confused:

Unless this gets picked up elsewhere, i think we have to call it a day on this one.

BHX based YL-LCV now off lease?
 
We flew FUE-BHX on it on 21/22 Oct and today it flew AGP-LCA under a Jet2 code EXS062J but is now outbound from LCA to TLL, MYX508 code.
Is that the end of the summer lease for YL-LCV?

Yes it will be. They tend to use the low numbers for positioning/ test flights

An unfortunate and early end of the lease as it has been at Malaga since Saturday after a bird strike.

They had use a 738 in place off and bussed some pax away from BHX and I think they used a 738 and 733 on one Malaga flight inbound.

the lease was always due to end yesterday - unfortunately it ended two days early due to this bird strike and 31 passengers displaced on each flight either flying to other bases if room available or with other airlines.

I had known we were coming back on this leased 321 since booking day and was not looking forward it as these Smartwings planes had not had good press, tatty frames, unpunctual etc etc. The Reality, however, was much better than expected. Clean and tidy aircraft, not tatty interior at all with ELR seats in Row1 with much better fold out old tables than the dreadful plug in things on the new 737s. Flight was On Time (shock, horror) and the landing at BHX was a Greaser. Mrs S, the archetype white knuckler, actually enjoyed the flight.
So far, all next years flights are ex-EMA so all 737s, as we can't do stupid o'clock landings any more. Lol.

So what exactly is the announcement?

Johnny [email protected] Pants 6th Nov 2018 21:09

What announcement??

Satoshi Nakamoto 6th Nov 2018 21:16

Martin Kemp to replace Jess.

Lsflyer1 6th Nov 2018 21:55

Someone mentioned further up something about an annoucement which isnt the launch of new routes.

There was an vague rumour about new bases at BRS/CWL and a BCN base. it seems to have tailed off, and quite rightly too, i wouldn't read much into it

The only thing I can think of is TCX using Jet2 aircraft for NCL flights. Maybe more.
It could also be a bit of Mischief. 😁

LiamNCL 7th Nov 2018 09:21

Well rumours on the NCL thread is that after summer winter 2019 TCX wont have any aircraft at Newcastle in S20 and its got people saying a deal with Jet2 who would provide the flights for TCX but who knows.

I don't know which is more unlikely, this or the new bases rumour.

When the Holidays arm were getting into the groove a few years back, TCX and TUI responded by pulling Jet2 brochures from the shelves. Now that Jet2 has overtaken TCX to the #2 ATOL position, why would they want to help them back up? If anything the removal would spell a great opportunity for Jet2 to stick another 1 or 2 planes into NCL and finish them off for good

Personally I cant see that happening, we fill our own flights with our own passengers, I don’t think we have room for TCX passengers too.

What if Jet2 operated flights on behalf of Thomas Cook instead of the like of Smartlynx?

LiamNCL 7th Nov 2018 10:37

I personally cant see why TCX or JET2 would help each other out TCX have some exclusive routes from NCL but have dropped the Smartlynx aircraft from 2019 so there is a space for Jet2 to take it over if they wished.

Lsflyer1 8th Nov 2018 08:42

Looks like new york on sale for next winter already. From the seat maps looks like every departure from all bases except leeds will be using the A330.
