Probably a technical issue. I've heard there have been a few issues this season with this aircraft. But thats the beauty of having aircraft on standby, having the flexibility to cover when things go wrong.

Difference being is TCX didnt fly out of LBA , So the demand increase has soared more at NCL. Hopefully this demand can be met in the months ahead.

Well if we can trust any operator to remain flexible and change with the times as demand peaks and dips, then itís most certainly Jet2

Hopefully ! Jet2 announced on Twitter via a reply that they are seeking to add further aircraft and seats at this time.

Additional seats for TFS, DLM and ACE from what I can see from NCL.

MAN has quite a few too apparently including some days of 3x rotations to TFS.

There will be other bases too, I am sure, and they might as well utilise their spare winter AC availability!

looks like a lot of flights have been added from the 30th onwards until the 6th of November for now.

these include BHX, MAN, NCL, BFS for now. All the flight numbers are 4xxx so are easily identifiable as additional flights

You'd be amazed if the likes of Jet2 etc haven't been watching the situation carefully and don't already have plans in place.

chaps1954 24th Sep 2019 09:29

I am sure they have, probably for several months

Like a fare increase of 400% from one day to another and luggage charge on top of that. Haven't Thomas Cook clients suffered enough already!

they are a business not a charity.

If I was the company I'd gladly trade 10 million in extra profits for reputation (not increasing prices). Reputation would reap rewards in the future (next year).

Leeds-based airline, so what do you expect? Who was it who once described a Yorkshireman as a Scot with all the generosity squeezed out

Exactly. They also have a responsibility to their shareholders.

People have short memories. If the price is right next year, they'll travel with whoever.

All the people whinging about lost holidays - if they've booked with TC as a package, they'll get their money back. If they've booked flight only there are other ways they could get their money back via insurance or credit/debit card chargebacks. Nobody is forcing people to pay inflated prices. The prices have gone up as a result of demand. It's basic supply vs demand and it is run through a computer algorithm.

People need to have a reality check and think of the thousands who are without a job and won't get paid this week.

Whats the chances of Jet2 taking up MCO from MAN ? TCX leaves huge hole in that particualr market and cant help think its a perfect fit for LS. Unthinkable ??

Those that know will know - does a Jet2 757 have the range and kit etc to go MAN-MCO or is it 330 territory?

eggc 24th Sep 2019 19:34

Would need be a 330. Jet2 cant do wrong at the minute and with such a void, the 330 already employed by them and the fuss they could make of it I dont doubt they make a huge success of it. I am not ITK, but I cant believe they are not at least discussing it. A no brainer launch in to long haul leisure routes for them IMO.

Quite so.
I'd be so pleased to stuff VA in my has-bin. Lol. Pricing dependent, of course.

There are TCX routes that LS would not suit, Seattle, Boston, JFK etc, but Cancun, Carribean, Florida etc will all be short of seats next summer now, they fit LS's portfolio and what better time to dip your toes in the next stage of growth. I hope they have they bottle to give it a go...

I wouldn't be surprised if Virgin and Delta plug those holes if not for next summer but the one after. And maybe TUI adds a bit as well. Maybe TUI would be bold and lease a few dreamliners from Norwegian?

mmeteesside 24th Sep 2019 20:22

Strikes me as a golden opportunity for Jet2 to have a go at the long haul market in the pursuit of further growth. If they don't go for long haul now they'll never have a better chance with the shortage of capacity next summer. There's lots of potential opportunities within the European market though so perhaps they'll focus on these instead and stick to what they know works. Would like to see them be bold and go for it.
