With Jet2 operating Boeing 737/757 it is not the ideal aircraft to fly into GIB
The 737-300 should be fine as Bmibaby used it on the EMA-GIB route about 5 years ago. Albeit certification may be required for some aircraft. I remember when second hand Monarch aircraft arrived they were not able to operate to into GIB when they first came, it was only a few Months later that they were able to run the route.

Remember the NC GIB incident well , ended up keeping a 320(NW) for a while longer because of it , and fyi the skipper did NOT get dismissed ....

Confirming 100% wrong about the Captain being dismissed.

Erroneous information on pPrune - must be a first!

I disagree - the 757 was a very suitable aircraft for the GIB route.

As someone who lives in Gibraltar and flies back to the UK at least every fortnight I too can confirm a good half of any flight answer 'Spain' when asked at border control where they are staying.

A recently article about Jet2 mentioned that half of their flights are filled by their holidays division and I can't really see them filling regular flights for Gibraltar holidays, nor can I see them offering holidays in Spain that involve a flight to Gibraltar and the walk of shame across the border.

Hopefully I'm wrong as more flights are much needed since Monarch's demise...

compton3bravo 8th Dec 2017 07:42

Sincere apologies about the Monarch captain getting the chop. My 'inside information' proved totally wrong. grovel, grovel.

SWBKCB 8th Dec 2017 07:57

Is there actually any indication anywhere that Jet2 plan to fly to GIB, other than GIB sized gaps in their schedules?

Plane.Silly 8th Dec 2017 08:02

No guarantee it's GIB, though the rumour was that slots were filled for times suitable for GIB and that there would likely be new destinations. GIB was the likely choice, but as discussed in posts 197/198, a couple other contenders may also be on the cards

Update on PPJN today regarding an order for 5 A330 a/c

Wonder where that information has came from.

VC10man 12th Dec 2017 16:56

My wife and some friends went to Madeira recently on Jet2. She said they were fantastic with nice staff and spotlessly clean aircraft. On time as well!

olster 22nd Dec 2017 11:02

According to ppjn, Jet2 are ordering 5 A330ís. Any truth in this?

rudolf 22nd Dec 2017 14:53

Yes it's true that PPJN say that 5 x A330 are being ordered. You won't hear anything official one way or the other, it's commercial confidence and the chances of a leak are slim.

HH6702 22nd Dec 2017 18:26

To be delivered when?

Plane.Silly 27th Dec 2017 08:00

I know they're leasing 2 in for their S18 MAN ops, but to go and buy them?
if it is true, either they'll stuff as many seats in as possible, or they see long haul as an option. Have senior management been talking to MON bosses lately?

LBAflyer22 27th Dec 2017 16:36

I've heard the rumours of the 2nd A330 however yet to see this come to fruition but not only that i think the longer it is left the harder Jet2 will find to fill it. So they'll probably stick to the 1 A330 out of MAN. Who knows!?

As for the order i don't believe a single word. Until i see this confirmed by Jet2 themselves i won't believe that they will order the A330. I believe that they have areas where they can grow - BFS with 737-800, BHX, STN along with the older bases. New destinations in Greece, Italy and new city break destinations along with new base or two to in the West Country/Wales.

A budget airline has been criticised by the Civil Aviation Authority for refusing to sign up to a complaints handling service. Jet2 is the only one of the top ten UK airlines not to join the Alternative Dispute Resolution service, which resolved more than 10,000 passenger complaints in its first year of operation

Plane.Silly 29th Dec 2017 08:20

They do like to keep a lot of operations in house, so bringing in an extra watchdog could be threatening to them.
Press haven't heard from them as yet, as to their reasons though (there must be a major one somewhere)

Lee J 29th Dec 2017 09:49

There was an interesting comment on Travel Weekly regarding this:


Jet2 is quite right to take a step back from this.

As the CAA states, 75% were in the customer's favour.

Looking at some of the 75% in customer's favour include:-

Mr. J from Norfolk.

Was told he had to pay extra for luggage as his case was 2KG over limit and refused to pay and did't take the flight.

Requested a FULL refund.

Received 100% of his claim.
Does seem slightly ludicrous?

paully 29th Dec 2017 09:52

Seems Aer Lingus and Emirates hold the same views as Jet2.

GAXLN 29th Dec 2017 18:54

Completely, Absolutely, Appalling if you want my opinion. But then if you've never worked at the sharp end of the industry how on earth can you understand all the issues. Not saying airlines are paragons of virtue but then neither are some passengers.

A321 from smartlynx now confirmed for BHX

Thanks for the updates. Prices certainly seem firm out of Leeds again.

Many posts back there were harsh words about LBA and I agree.
However the new CEO is known to PM and I have highlighted to PM many times the appalling deal customers get on the ground.
Leeds is almost 3rd world and spending an hour waiting at passports coming in is not on. Meanwhile " we apologise for the delay " playing over the system.
Come on Leeds get it sorted.

castleford tiger 7th Jan 2018 15:12

can someone confirm fleet size now 80 ?

chaps1954 7th Jan 2018 15:23

Have a look at this from Jethro
Jet2 Fleet List

VentureGo 7th Jan 2018 15:33

According to Airfleets, Jet2 have 77 aircraft registered active as of today:

DjerbaDevil 7th Jan 2018 18:25

According to Planespotters, Jet2 have 74 aircraft registered active as of today, which tally with the Jethro’s fleet numbers:

https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Jet2

It is worth noting, however, that JET2 will be taking delivery of 12 new B738s from now until January 2019.

Plane.Silly 8th Jan 2018 06:57

I believe the plan is to end up with about 85 for S18 peak time, not sure as to how many of the B733's will be retired because of it though, or if any extra leases are needed

garry8g 10th Jan 2018 19:24

Jethros reporting that Jet2 are to aquire at least 2 ex Transaero B737-800's (EI-RUN & EI-RUO).

EI-RUN is currently at Lasham, having flown into East Midlands on 20th December 2017, then onwards to Lasham on 22nd December 2017.

Lots of changes coming to the terminal interior at LBA to make things better... Work already started. Had a long chat with the CEO and Ops Director late last year and I believe they are starting to move things in the right direction again.

flight radar showing fleet of 80 as of today

45 in the air now

2 x A330 for summer lease

Plane.Silly 15th Jan 2018 14:17

A few more 2nd hand 738's?

Buster the Bear 15th Jan 2018 18:29

Two ex Transaero parked at Lasham this evening, both destined I am told for Jet2?

Gurnard 16th Jan 2018 07:44

Correct. EI-RUO arrived on 15th from Teruel.

paully 16th Jan 2018 09:23

No doubt they will be bound for LBA seeing as they arn`t new :(

Indeed, why waste the new SFP aircraft on LBA. It's not like it's short, often wet, high up... oh. I'll get my coat.

Mr A Tis 16th Jan 2018 15:35

There were rumours on the MAN pages that for S18, Jet2 would be splitting operations between T1 & T2. Anyone any idea if that is the case ? If so- would check in also be split?

Plane.Silly 17th Jan 2018 06:42

Jet2 Additions from EMA for the summer holidays (end Jul-Beginning Sep)

EMAIBZ - extra Friday and Sunday, now 8pw
EMAHER- extra Monday, now 3pw
EMADLM - extra Saturday, now 3pw
EMAAYT - extra sunday, now 2pw
EMABJV - NEW ROUTE, on Saturdays

Obviously seeing good volumes for Turkey. Wonder if any other bases are getting more?

[QUOTE=Mr A Tis;10021584]There were rumours on the MAN pages that for S18, Jet2 would be splitting operations between T1 & T2. Anyone any idea if that is the case ? If so- would check in also

Afraid so Tfs, Pmi, Agp, and Ace all allocated to T2 this summer handling agents already training up staff, gojng to be a nightmare, pax have enough problems getting the right Terminal on a good day. Easyjet also basing 4 a/c at least in T2.

garry8g 17th Jan 2018 17:39

Jethro's showing two leased A330 from AirTanker summer 18 (in Jet2 fleet list), has this been confirmed now?

Are they both being based at Manchester?

LAX_LHR 17th Jan 2018 19:45

Is the STN sub the Titan A321 by any chance? There is a 2nd A330 showing in chroma for MAN?
