G-DRTI registering on FR24 at MAN. Looks like its located at the hangars.
Switched on for systems checks prior to test flights?
Update anyone?

It's been "live" again today. If you look back to the 16th August comment, it was due to go for painting a week ago. Evidently maintenance is taking longer than was anticipated.

apparently it has run over by a few weeks - due out of the hangar and to go on its first check flight on the 20th sept is the current estimate.

Thanks for that.

A nice little boost of late capacity, good to see Jet2 showing confidence in the market

Thumbs up from me for Jet2, we arrived at Birmingham for a flight to Majorca on Sunday to find it was already delayed by 30 minutes. Nothing new there looking at the departures for the past few weeks. We were due to leave on a 321 which we could see from the terminal, but nothing was around it, then a 757 taxis in, knowing they donít usually operate from Birmingham I had a quick look at where it had come from ~ Leeds, by 9.40we were in the air, yes a delay of 1hr 15 minutes but on the face of it they had made the decision to move an aircraft before we were due to check in.

i still hate the seats though and the cheese and ham toasty should be toasted both sides

And I'm not surprised.
We've had pilots, CC, office guys and girls not to mention pax chiming in here on this thread and others about Jet2 and they all speak highly of a progressive airline who have ALL their people (pax and employees) at the heart of their operation.
Well done! Sky's the limit.

Don't mention "Staff Travel" or "profit share" to Phillip though!

Why not Ivan?

Profit share sounded decent to me. Surely it should be Alex Cruz you donít mention profit share to?

Johnny [email protected] Pants 20th Sep 2019 22:33


Jono you really need to ask?
I take it you didn’t hear about our nice profit share recently??

I know where you’re coming from re staff travel, it no longer works but you can certainly mention it to Phillip.

The 321 has been a problem for us this year. Good on them to get a spare 757 there to sort the situation.

It has been mentioned to the man at the top.

Staff Travel: Any spare seats the company will attempt to shift as a late deal package. Understandable that there's no real discount on the packages for staff. With regards to standby tickets I personally feel that any seats remaining when check-in closes could be given to staff at a cheap rate... However, the big boss is worried that staff will take a flight out and chance seats being available on the way back - if they're not available potentially the crew will miss being back in time for work. That's up to the crew of course but I can understand the concern. Doubt it will change anytime soon.

Profit Share: 8% of basic salary for non-incentivised staff this year. Next year probably less.

That’s the associated risk of travelling on standby though, no other carriers have a problem with this.

Up to 50% and only to destinations and hotels of their choosing.

My wife flew out this morning from LBA to Malaga. Due out 09.35 on ES-SAP. They were told the plane had to be changed and finally departed at 12.01 on LSAB. Under the circumstances very good from Jet2. Anybody know the reason for the change.

JonnyH 23rd Sep 2019 12:23

Jet2 coming under substantial scrutiny on social media today regarding their astronomical price increases, up to 400% in some cases, and prices also changing significantly when the customer clicks to submit payment.

Whilst I fully understand the whole supply and demand line, I think there is a fine line between this and just sheer greed e.g charging one way for £500/£600 per person out of season when it was £100-£150.

The prices will probably also come down too once the dust has settled but now with just LS & TUI there is a good chance this is going to drive up prices significantly - not good for the likes of NCL and LBA.

Don't think LS or TUI can afford to become over complacent as EZY Holidays start up shortly and will want to build market share quickly!!

Unfortunately I was expecting this, when Monarch went under we tried to book MAN-GIB with EasyJet on the same day and it was £420 per person one way not including extras :(
