Do you know something we don't Mr YeeHaw?
A new aircraft order perhaps?

I don't think it's a secret that dart group are talking to both airbus and Boeing at the moment...

Correct and have been for a good while. My money is on Airbus 320/321er

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.

doing the leg in reverse can also help

they could only ever attempt to do legs in reverse from ALC or PMI as these are the only two aircraft/crew bases outside the UK.

All depends on the MAX issues and what comes of that Airframe.
The 321ís have been very successful and useful over the past few years.
Donít be surprised if you see a few more A330s over summer 2020.
Also talks / enquires still on going to see if longhaul leisure is a pie worth baking.

Are we likely to see the A330 at STN in the near future? Surely must be on the cards?

Nothing confirmed, To be honest, The need is there for TFS, ACE and PMI and a few Greek Destinations but Manchester is. Priority as you can imagine, Stansted is performing far better than expected but in the short term priorities have obviously got to be on Manchester but don’t rule anything out, things will be much clearer end of October/ November.

No true, it is not uncommon for the ALC standby aeroplane to position hither and thither to operate an inbound sector.

Jet2 are to launch flights to Montenegro next summer. Flights between Manchester - Tivat, & London Stansted - Tivat will both operate 2x weekly (Thu & Sun) from May 2020

Been watching this with interest, seems 2x A/C still stuck at Athens, the flight status for LS1489 which should have landed at CFU last night, now won't land in CFU until tonight at 2022hrs, not sure why they are leaving it so late to get it back to CFU? The AC and passengers are in Athens together.

Three Jet 2 diverted aircraft set off from Athens at the same time to get to CFU, one landed (Edinburgh) whereas Manchester (LS951) and Stanstead (LS1489) held not even attempting to approach the island and returned to Athens.

Crew hours perhaps?

Strange as several other flights seemed to land successfully last night.

Ah yes, good point! There were 2 Jet2's and 1 Ryanair that failed to ever make it to CFU, everything else ended up landing either post divert or holding for some time.

Heard we have or are taking some tcg planes.

Anyone care to speculate Fleet size by peak season. We were 100 this year but I cannot keep up with what's coming and going. Help !

LiamNCL 5th Oct 2019 10:08

Jet2 could expand as much as they care to from now providing they are willing to take on a new type (airbus) as i cant see them gaining many 2nd hand 738s right now. They could aswell go down the road of bringing in Smartlynx who they already work with and Avion but it all comes down to how much they are willing to pick up.

sixchannel 5th Oct 2019 10:20

Wonder if CELE and CELY will get a reprieve as well as the older 757s?
Jet2 do have quite a bit of arms length A321 experience via Smartlynx and I'm sure the ex-TCX aircraft will be easily available to lease AND lots of available Crew.

alland2012 7th Oct 2019 13:13

Anyone know if there is any truth in the rumour that Jet2 are adding the Greek Island of Skiathos to their destinations next summer ?

In conversation at the weekend with a hotelier buddy on Skiathos tells me one of his fellow hoteliers is telling people he's signed a contract with Jet 2 holidays for 2020

There is definitely a gap in the market to fill following TC's collapse, they sold lots of package holiday's and flight only to Skiathos.
