​​​​​​​What do you fancy for G(et) - Down and DiRtI - Silver grey and red or white and blue with sunburst (my favourite)?

Has to be the Silver and Red based on the pictures knocking around of the patchwork.The red rudder is quite a sign I hope.

Ye Gods! What a patchwork. Looks like it needed some exterior (corrosion?) remedy work let alone what they must have found internally and electronically.
Do I espy a replacement rudder in Jet2 red? Maybe a clue to its finished scheme?
​​​​​​​I'll put me tin of white gloss back in the shed.

Almost looks as they kept running out of a few colours of paint. Any colour will do as long as its covered.

off to be painted into Jet2.com red and silver - hint is also in the nose cone which is also new along with the tail fin as you pointed out.

Is that also a couple of replacement aircraft doors, front and rear?

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

Do we know what flights the Evelop A330 will be operating out of MAN yet or is that still being worked out?

All credit to Jet2 for their recoveries. G-LSAD seems to have had an issue in Rome, LSAE already en-route to recover the service!
Any other airline I can't help but feel this would just be a delay or a cancellation!

116d 1st Oct 2019 12:20

Plane.Silly and irishlad06 - many thanks for the confirmation.

I have a lot of respect for an airline that will throw money at a problem for the convenience and comfort of the passengers, incredibly rare these days. Most airlines would leave you sitting in the departure lounge until the AOG can get a quick fix or whack some speed tape on it. Think the Jet2 ops and crewing teams have a crystal ball or magic 8 ball or something because they seem to preempt nearly every potential problem that comes their way.

What a complete load of crap! If an aircraft is AOG then there is no quick fix or speed tape repair. If there was then it wouldn't be Aog would it!

It's not rocket science. They have lots of standby aircraft and crew. No crystal ball.

You do realise that this is purely to try and avoid EU261 payouts? It's not just for the benefit of the customer...

Pardon my ignorance, but wouldnt launching an empty 757 complete with full crew to and from Rome cost more than EU compo?

4Screwaircrew 2nd Oct 2019 11:34

We were told that a full 757 running late enough to pay EU261 on a long sector such as TFS would generate a compensation bill of about €185000 so it’s almost certainly cheaper to rescue than to compensate.

Ouch, that sounds pretty bad, but what if the rescue flight doesn't operate in time. THen you have the cost of an extra 757 flying two positioning sectors, and still having to pay the comp bill. On that basis, unless you know beyond reasonable doubt that you can recover in time, then you don't rush into it.


LBAflyer22 2nd Oct 2019 12:35

There is points in Europe you'll be able to save 3 hours, other points where this is not possible. However from a Customer point of view - if you actively see/hear a rescue plane is coming you are a little more relieved then the good ol' "well we shall tell you in 2 hours" 2 hours time "wait another 2 hours".

Yeehaw22 2nd Oct 2019 12:44

It's a definite balancing act. Send the spare aircraft to recover one set of pax, or use the spare to recover the aog's next rotation I.e save 2 sets of eu261 payments.

Jet2 are far better at most at recovery there's no doubt but yes its primarily for cost saving but with the secondary effect of keeping the punters happy. They also have a large number of older fully owned aircraft that they can afford to have sat around on standby. It will be interesting to see if they have the same approach when they have a larger percentage of newer more expensive aircraft.
