Might be a while if tales of Boing scrapping Max production become reality.

Boeing have no intension of scrapping production of the Max, they may for a period halt production however.
Also my guess is Tui don't own them, so it will be up to the owners what happens to them and when it happens.

Yes, I read it as a temporary stoppage of the assembly line. After all if your building 40+ per month and only have finite parking space then something had to happen.

TUI own a couple of them, rest are leased. Obviously the lessor will I am sure be pleased to extend the leases for TUI or to another airlines at the right price (which is probably a better price for a passenger airline than being converted to freighters)

Second-hand B737-800s
Five more were expected prior to summer 2019 but have not arrived. Are they not required? It has been suggested that G-DRTI may be in service soon, but why has there been a delay?

Supply and demand? I expect the price and availability of second hand 738's has changed a bit since those plans were made.

Are they not required?
Yes, but I understand that the number of standby aeroplanes has been reduced, and possibly some leases extended.

G-LSAC has gone tech again this time in Rhodes! I wonder what is wrong with her?

TSR2 31st Jul 2019 12:23

Operated the LS819 MAN-RHO, then went AOG.
G-JZHH was used yesterday under LS8200 to operate the inbound sector. Delay would have been around 18hrs

G-LSAC still in RHO at the moment

"Big ends have gone".
Well it's what my Dad used to say back in the day when the car broke down.

B737-300, G-GDFO was sent out yesterday to recover the RHO-MAN delay. Positioned LBA-RHO as LSS41A, Then operated RHO-MAN as LS8201 and finally re-positioned MAN-LBA as LS49A

G-DRTB has gained a pair of winglets over the last few weeks , leaves just FF & FJ which a dont think will get them now.

JonnyH 8th Aug 2019 11:59

Whatís the maintenance programme like for LS over the summer months? I know most airlines do base changes but it seems more common for LS than other airlines i.e aircrafts moving from NCL to LBA or swapping down in ACE/TFS so they go back to a different base.

LiamNCL 8th Aug 2019 14:04

Jet2 move aircraft around constantly ,

JZBO did NCL-FAO-BFS on Tuesday then today did BFS-FAO-NCL.

Seems a bit pointless doesnít it? Iím guessing they possibly swapped an older BFS based aircraft into NCL for some kind of maintenance before swapping it straight back.

Thats what i was thinking with NCL being a bigger base that it must be to get some mainenance on a BFS aircraft.

G-DRTI
 
I was just wondering if there is an update on the status of this aircraft.

Most databases agree that it appears to still be in Manchester and has never entered service.

Are Jet2 keeping this aircraft as it still shows registered to them on the CAA website G-INFO.

No doubt all has not gone to plan as it was taken in June but nothing of note has been published recently about its status (outside of Jet2).

Jet2 seemed to have coped without it although BHX sees quite a few of the G-DRT range and there has been more than one or two 757's appearing to cover tech aircraft.

OP
Iím guessing that this is the aircraft that has been tucked up in the back corner of the EXS hangar @ MAN for quite some time. I saw it last week and it was still wearing a basic and very tatty JAI scheme. Hope this helps.
