There is also scope to cover some of the routes TCX were the sole operator for e.g. Santorini, Skiathos etc. which have always been popular.

It would be an interesting landing in an A330 at Skiathos!

It's white knuckle as it is in an A321

I didn't mean the A330 for the Greek routes they would be nowhere near busy enough to justify it anyway, I was suggesting A330 for the busy routes like those I mentioned, and then to launch the Greek routes on the 738s, sorry for the confusion.

As per some posts a couple of weeks back itís G-DRTI that arrived on delivery at the end of May, and has been worked on ever since.

4 months to work on one aircraft? seems like a long time for a 14 year old a/c.
also if it's been taking up hangar space for that long, does that mean other fleet maintenance has suffered as a result?

With Jet2 I would doubt that very much.
More likely, given its origin, it was more than a bit dog-eared and has taken quite a bit of TLC to get it up to their standards mechanics wise.
One assumes they factored all this in when they bought it.

Looks like an additional widebody will be supplementing the fleet for October due additional demand

Yeah an Evelop A330-300 will operate out of Manchester from the first week of Oct.

irishlad06 27th Sep 2019 17:03

And a A321 into Manchester as additional too. YL-LCQ due to start operations from the 4th Oct

NCL - FUE ACE TFS all increased up until April.

Flying Wild 27th Sep 2019 21:13

At BHX, an extra 320 from Titan showing up in October.

GLA now has a Titan A320 from early October, G-POWM on lease to Jet2

Mooncrest 28th Sep 2019 18:27

The LBA-based SmartLynx A320, ES-SAP, hasn't flown for at least the last three days. She was taken to the hangar yesterday morning and was still in there this afternoon. She should have flown to Faro today but one of Jet2's own 738s did the honours instead.

The same aircraft then covers BHX from about the 21st onwards once the Scottish half term ends.

G-DRTI - Again

As I type this, G-DRTI landing at EMA after a 90 minute trip west over Ireland and back - MAN-EMA.
Max Alt - 28k, Max Speed - 560mph
Going for painting?
