100% FALSE.
Jet2 have stated there is no intention of starting long haul, due to the complexity and cost of doing so


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.
This is the exact same reason why they can't fly into Cyprus on the A330

It doesnít necessarily mean that the aircraft hasnít been looked after properly. If not all the paperwork comes with the aircraft then some repairs will have to be redone. Looking at the patchwork on the fuselage of this aircraft then it looks like every skin repair has been redone.

I know of a few cases in the UK were the paperwork regarding skin repairs was incorrect/missing and the leasing company required every skin repair to be redone. Redoing the work is the only way they can assure that is done in accordance with the Structural Repair Manual.

Good point CEJM, end of lease requirements are very complex and expensive, especially if you have failed operators in the mix.

There were a fair number of 737-800s ordered by Delta that were sold on before delivery. DL got a spanking deal in the 1990s, but could not afford delivery/did not need them in the early mid 2000s.

Looks like G-DRTI had her first revenue flight today, flying MAN - ALC. Currently on her way back!

I wonder what Reg sequence the A321ís will use when they enter service in Summer 2020?

What A321's?
If they're Renters eg Smartwings YL-LCV , they'd surely retain Owners Reg.
But why do you believe Jet2 are in the market for any?

Ladies and gents, got a LS flight at the weekend, they have a real weapon of a planned flight, it will take some operator to match them at the minute. For a LC operation its well oiled and really good at the minute.

They are certainly going to struggle to find some more second hand 737-800's given the current 787 problems

I'm just saying have you got any evidence to back up your statement. And 737-800's assisting with the 787 engine problems ;)

It is not my statement regarding the A321 deliveries.
But it is evident that airlines who were going to release 737-800's once they got 787's are not in a position to do so it is feasible that jet2 are looking at Airbus products

Also heard through the leasing grapevine at least 5 ex tcx 321's have been taken up by J2.

nowhereasfiled 15th Oct 2019 22:14

Apparently Jet2 are operating a handful of flights to Barbados this winter using AirTanker on behalf of P&O cruises

You would assume then that these would be 4 of the ones owned outright by TCX, as AFAIK the majority of the A321 fleet was leased from various lessors.

LBIA 16th Oct 2019 13:55

Not an Airbus A321 aircraft announcement, But Jet2 have just put on sale another new Greek destination of Skiathos for summer 2020 along more flights added from Leeds/Bradford.

Flights to Skiathos start in May and will operate as follows
Birmingham = 1x weekly (Wed)
Manchester = 2x weekly (Wed & Sun)

Extra flights from Leeds/Bradford for summer 2020

Arrecife = Increased 6x to 7x weekly
Las Palmas = Increased 4x to 5x weekly
Fuerteventura = Increased 3x to 4x weekly
Tenerife = Increased 8x to 9x weekly
Dalaman = Increased 6x to 7x weekly
Antalya = Increased 7x to 8x Weekly

GAZMO 16th Oct 2019 14:32

Great news. Does anyone know if BFS will get any extra flights in summer 2020?

nwoody2001 16th Oct 2019 15:03

Similarly major new growth announced at BHX with 2x new routes and 17x new weekly flights (an additional based aircraft???). This is in addition to the previously announced Summer'20 schedule.

New Routes
BCN: 2x weekly
JSI: 1x weekly

Route Increases
AYT: 8 x weekly (+2 x weekly added)
DLM: 8 x weekly (+2 x weekly added)
FUE: 4 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
LPA: 5 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
KGS: 3 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
ACE: 8 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
LCA: 5 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
MLA: 2 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
MAH: 5 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)
TFS: 12 x weekly (+2 x weekly added)
ZTH: 4 x weekly (+1 x weekly added)

In total, Summer'20 currently consists of 47 routes, 192 x weekly flights and nearly 72,600 weekly seats. This is an increase of 26 x weekly flights and nearly 10,000 weekly seats (+15.6%) on Summer'19. These extra 10,000 seats will be welcome to help plug the 26,000 seat gap lost by TCX however....
