G-DRTI & YL-LCV

I’m 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.

Cheers for the info just wondered if there had been a change of mind but I assume there is a major issue as 2 months on the ground in peak time is not what would have been anticipated.

They could have done with it today as the BHX schedule has been disrupted and I think a first for Jet2 at BHX with an overnight delay on an outbound. This afternoons Antalya is now due out 09.45 in the morning, plus this afternoons Malaga is running 3 hours late after the aircraft needed an air-test over the North Sea and as for YL-LCV! It went to Rome (with a friend) around 4 hours late alongside B733 G-GDFK which positioned in from Leeds. Rumour has it a slide was blown on the A321 and thus reduced capacity - both aircraft have returned successfully. Quite a day

Hi Pete
I can`t remember where I read it but I am sure I saw that it was due to be in hangar for 13 weeks so obviously something
major was due to be done and I guess when that is finished it will be painted

G-JZBO has been out of action a few days aswell it positioned NCL-SNN a few days ago.

GDRTI has always been planned for this length of maintenance. There are a lot more records to build due to were the aircraft has come from (non EASA) and if it come with a full “service history” just like a car. It is also having a major c check while in the hangar. It is currently planned to come out around 5th sept and go for painting.

Cheers both - If it was never planned for high summer they have coped remarkably well even with the problems encountered this week, as everything at the BHX base seems to be back on track. Not sure if all the Antalya pax got back to BHX as a 738 landed yesterday evening and BHX arrivals indicated a second aircraft 05.00 this morning. They did put two aircraft on the Rome to get all the A321 home which I have to say is going that extra mile to get your pax back.

Indications thus far although the 11th based aircraft at BHX was high-season only it seems it might stay and some flights re-timed to give a more relaxed schedule utilising the 11th aircraft.

Very impressive airline I have to say when it comes to schedule recovery.

Probably with creosote. Thats what I did last time I bought a shed.

chaps1954 17th Aug 2019 15:05

When it comes out it will be as good as new Sixchannel and you won`t be able to tell the difference between that and a brand new machine

I know dat. I was trying to be a bit humorous on a slow Saturday.
Our last flight EMA-FUE (can't find my notes at the moment) was on a recently refurbed Jet2 acquisition. It looked brand new and performed perfectly as expected.

Yes, there is.

I see leased Titan aircraft G-POWN has been out of action for some while, does anyone know whats up with her?

L1649 20th Aug 2019 17:06

She is currently awaiting a replacement engine due to birdstrike damage.

Mr A Tis 26th Aug 2019 15:32

Would appear a Jet2 diverted to Porto today with unwell pilot. Reported unable to clear runway, so presumably the Captain.
hopefully a speedy recovery & best wishes from Ppruners.

Replacement crew and aeroplane already in OPO to get the passengers to Madeira ASAP.

Well done to all concerned.

Gurnard 26th Aug 2019 19:59

Replacement a/c was G-LSAJ but LS765D continued in G-LSAC. Any ideas why G-LSAJ was not used?

Flightrider 26th Aug 2019 20:17

Between enquiries like this and the TUI thread in latter days (with the focus on why one 737 hasn’t flown for a few days), this board is showing an increasingly firm grasp on the non-essentials. Someone has had an incap or near incap event today which may well result in the individual concerned being unable to fly for a period of time. And here we are querying why one aircraft flew and another didn’t. It’s unreal. Can we banish this to Spectators Balcony?

PS - I hope the individual concerned is ok.
PPS - well done to Jet2 on speedy recovery of a situation in which no airline would ever wish to find itself.

Bags already on the aircraft. Why spend additional time cross decking bags when it's just the crew who need to swap across?
