TCX didnt have a based Aircraft at EXT

I really can`t see Jet2 doing Caribbean or Mexico in near future, the A330s are very busy in summer and looks like this winter too on European IT and a few JFK
over Nov/Dec and I believe they may be getting the 3rd Tanker one also

Unless they lease (or buy) a few more A330s....there are a few lying around at the moment. And available personnel to crew them.

Jet2 fly to EWR, not JFK, but we get the idea :)

Clearly need the right aircraft.
That said the cost of setting operations up would not add to the bottom line.

Agreed, long haul is expensive to set up and to maintain a good level of service. The ideal situation is to increase the short haul business with extra aircraft from the TCX fleet, say something between 10 and 20 Airbus 321s with ex-TCX pilots and engineers. Also it is screaming out they should take the opportunity of expansion of bases at LGW and BRS. STN has been a great success and further expansion there has been, almost certainly, due to a lack of aircraft. With the extra aircraft from TCX, JET2 would also make a success of LGW. No bets but will hold my breath for an announcement next week.

I think Jet2 would do well from EXT and BRS
As for LGW they might be wise to stick to their core values for now and not sleep with that beast.

Long Haul - ? Well they have their toes in the water with EWR -
The Caribbean cruise ship flights now have to be covered - who is or will be doing them?

Inc that 19yo TCX A330 at MAN, allegedly about to be broken up unless someone pays the cost of its uncompleted maintenance.?

garry8g 11th Oct 2019 10:29

It has been reported that Titan are getting an A330-200 for summer 2020 (arriving April 2020).

I wonder if we may see that flying for Jet2 next summer?

LiamNCL 11th Oct 2019 15:12

Cant see Jet2 entering Bristol when theres alot of TCX losses at their current bases.

Methinks that was a long while back now - apologies, you are correct

B738NG cracks : https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...m_medium=email

Any impacts on the J2 fleet reported anywhere?

nowhereasfiled 11th Oct 2019 18:28

Anybody able to enlighten me as to how true or false the galley fm rumours are that Jet2 will be using 330s (Air Tanker I guess) to operate to Cuba and/or Florida this coming summer???

Ivan aromer 12th Oct 2019 07:47

Share price doing well; keep it up team!

SJL26779 12th Oct 2019 08:02

If I remember correctly Air Tanker can't operate flights to Cuba. TCX were unable to use these air frames on their flights to Cuba. Something to do with the military connection I believe and radar equipment.

G-DRTI has just done a test flight from Manchester this morning

Looks like another 2 further flights were also done.

Yeah a friend of mine up there told me the first was a check flight and the last 2 were “shakedowns” at the CAAs request

Interesting this frame was originally ordered by Delta but not taken up. Seems to have been mostly with Jet Airways for past 15 years.

And probably not that well well looked after, judging by the time it took to get it straight, and the number of new exterior panels prior to paint.
The last flight looks like just a ground 'hot soak'. No FR24 actual flight recorded.

FR24 flights recorded for all three flights on the 12th, all heading north from MAN and back again, in excess of 1 hour each. As indicated above, one was a check flight, followed by two “shakedowns”.
