G-VYGM has gone over to TUI till around mid may while they service their 787 fleet.

mudcity 2nd Feb 2018 06:57

There is only one air tanker 330 GVYGL
GM - GK will be operating for TCX ex MAN

Plane.Silly 2nd Feb 2018 08:52

GVYGL didn't start in 2017 till mid May. Is it still a potential option, or would TUI have it for the whole season as well?

Blakedean 2nd Feb 2018 11:37

Read elsewhere there may be a GN being reregistered by Air Tanker, airliners.net IIRC.

garry8g 2nd Feb 2018 14:45

Of the original order of new B737-800's, 6+ still to be delivered this winter as follows.


The last remaining 4x are due to be delivered anytime between Aug 2018 & Jan 2019

The 2+ second hand Boeing 737-800 bought should be delivered and put in to service before end of winter

So this summer the fleet should be at 90+ aircraft as follows:

18x = Boeing 737-300's

56x = Boeing 737-800's
G-DRTA/B & EI-RUN/EI-RUO (Aircraft to be re-registered onto UK registrations)
EC-IDT (Leased from Air Europa = Based PMI)

12x Boeing 757-200's
G-POWH (Leased from Titan Airways = Based LBA)

3x = Airbus A321's
G-POWN/M (Leased from Titan Airways = Based STN)
YL-LCV (Leased from Smart Lynx = Based BHX)

1x = Airbus A330-200
G-VYGL (Leased from Air Tanker = Based MAN)

Interesting post regarding Jet2's fleet. Thanks for sharing.

For summer 2018 do you how many aircraft Jet2 will base at each of its bases?

GrahamK 4th Feb 2018 08:36

6 x 738 at GLA
3 x 733, 4 x 738 at NCL
3 X 733, 3X 738 at EDI

irishlad06 4th Feb 2018 13:15

13x B738
1 x A330

BFS BHD 4th Feb 2018 13:24

2x B733
2x B738

LBIA 4th Feb 2018 16:21

5+ B752 (1x leased Titan & 1+ spare)
5+ B738
6+ B733 (1+ spare)

Flying Wild 5th Feb 2018 10:45


7x 738
1x 321 (smartlinx)

irishlad06 5th Feb 2018 11:00


2 x B738 (1 flying 1 airport standby)

1 x B738 (air Europa lease)

Severn 5th Feb 2018 15:36

The schedules seem to show 2x B738s based at both PMI and ALC this summer. The aircraft at both PMI and ALC operate two returns to the UK each day (except for Tuesday afternoons in ALC, and Tues/Weds afternoons in PMI).

This is on top of the UK based aircraft operating to both PMI and ALC.

Looking at the timings on a Monday in August for example:

PMI Aircraft 1:
PMI 07:30 - STN 09:05 (45min turnaround) STN 09:50 - PMI 13:25
(1hr 10min turnaround)
PMI 14:25 - MAN 16:15 (1hr turnaround) MAN 17:00 - PMI 20:45

PMI Aircraft 2:
PMI 08:00 - BHX 09:35 (45min turnaround) BHX 10:20 - PMI 13:50
(1hr turnaround)
PMI 14:50 - LBA 16:40 (45min turnaround) LBA 17:25 - PMI 21:10

ALC Aircraft 1:
ALC 07:40 - MAN 09:35 (45 min turnaround) MAN 10:20 - ALC 14:15
(1 hour turnaround)
ALC 15:15 - MAN 17:10 (45 min turnaround) MAN 17:55 - ALC 21:50

ALC Aircraft 2:
ALC 08:00 - NCL 10:05 (50 min turnaround) NCL 10:55 - ALC 15:00
(55 min turnaround)
ALC 15:55 - MAN 17:50 (45 min turnaround) MAN 18:35 - ALC 22:30

G-POWN A321 ops flight LS1664 TFS-STN today.

Yorkshire_Pudding 8th Feb 2018 21:32

Any rumour of Jet2 acquiring the 3 x B75W currently operated by OpenSkies out of paris, which will cease boeing operations this summer? Apparently the winglets make them less attractive/unsuitable for cargo ops. 2 of 3 the are PW powered. The B767 I was told long ago is unsuitable due floor loading issues for high density config.

BAladdy 8th Feb 2018 22:41

Does the source of the rumour know when LS would take delivery of the aircraft and are the aircraft being acquired on lease or they being bought?.

Openskies 2 PW powered aircraft are leased. The RR 757 is I believe still owned by BA.

Yorkshire_Pudding 8th Feb 2018 23:04

Sorry it was a question not a rumour.

Plane.Silly 9th Feb 2018 06:46

Would be nice to see more than the current dozen of 757's, but i think their focus is very much on the 738 at present.

Eventually they'll need to look at bigger options than their 189 seat 738's, so more 757's would be ideal, but by the time that comes around, the 757's may be past their sell-by date (30+ years)

azz767 9th Feb 2018 07:37

I suppose it would be about cherry picking the best ones out there like FI are trying to do. With the openskies ones they'd have been run ragged at BA before but with the openskies operation you can imagine them firstly not being used as much and secondly being in better general condition than the majority of 757's out there, which I suppose begs the question, where would you look for the best examples if you wanted more 757's?

LiamNCL 9th Feb 2018 07:56

Surely some of the TUI ones could be worth a shout once they start to be WFU later this year ?

Plane.Silly 9th Feb 2018 08:51

TUI frames aren't a bad shout, similar use and about the same age as LS's current stock.

I'd be surprised if TUI wanted to sell them to Jet2 though, after all, they are bitter rivals. Their holiday arms are #1 and #2 in the UK market

Mr A Tis 9th Feb 2018 09:01

Would have thought the Open Skies fleet would be just transferred to Level who are taking over the services (From full service to low cost)

I believe the TUI 757's are the next aircraft to leave the fleet anyway, so giving them to Jet2 might work out.

You make that sound as if they are 2 football clubs.

LiamNCL 9th Feb 2018 12:14

TUI are getting rid of them for good reason as their MAX-8 start to come online. Not sure they will be fussed where the 752s end up.

Plane.Silly 9th Feb 2018 12:22

On the face of it, If Jet2 offer a decent price for them, TUI would be mad not to let them have them.

But i like the football analogy Blakedean. If you were a manager, would you want to sell your players to a rival team? No, because they can provide an advantage over yourself.
In the airline case, giving your competitor extra seats to sell means, assuming 'Ceteris Paribus' they improve their Revenue/Profit at TUI (indirect) expense

LBIA 9th Feb 2018 12:55

Are Jet2 even in the market to add further Boeing 757-200 aircraft to its fleet?

sixchannel 9th Feb 2018 16:09

New 737-800 G-JZBH now earning its keep. After delivery to LBA on 01/02 its now on BHX-TFS-BHX LS1293/4.
Does that mean BHX gets a nice shiny brand new one on its allocation?
I read earlier that BHX will have 8 737s for Summer. Currently stands at 5 as far as i can make out PLUS this one.
Where do all unused aircraft go in the Winter?

And again on 9-2-18, with 7-738's, so 8 airframes & its only just February.

southside bobby 10th Feb 2018 09:53

G-POWN ops STN-GNB this AM..

A/C still all white but has now acquired red Jet2.com titles on fuselage & tail.(again)..

Lease-in does indeed appear to have commenced early..

LBIA 10th Feb 2018 12:56

G-JZBH entered revenue earning service at LBA on Monday.

Ivan aromer 19th Feb 2018 20:17

Dont know what Phillp's boys and girls are doing but its working. The share price has risen sharply today.
Keep it up!

Trading Update - RNS - London Stock Exchange

Strong trading update...

RAFAT 19th Feb 2018 20:55

Still some way off last year's October high but going in the right direction.

Ivan aromer 20th Feb 2018 07:18

719 last year was the highest, trading well in excess of that today!

RAFAT 20th Feb 2018 21:46

Ooops, sorry, I was looking at the wrong chart! Doh!

Ivan aromer 21st Feb 2018 07:40

Fingers crossed for 8.00, Delapsus resurgam!

Marcus Absent 21st Feb 2018 17:12

Jet 2 Profits
With all this extra money they could buy the Thomas Cook hangar at MAN, which is rumoured to become vacant in the not to distant future.

LBIA 21st Feb 2018 20:41

Read elsewhere not so long ago that Multiflight are/maybe planning on investing millions of pounds in developing a new purpose built facility on the south side at Leeds/Bradford for Jet2 as well.

TheFiddler 22nd Feb 2018 20:45

But why?

With all this extra money they could buy the Thomas Cook hangar at MAN, which is rumoured to become vacant in the not to distant future.
They've already got the ex-Monarch hangar which can accommodate 3 aircraft. Why need a second one?
