Does anyone know the 7 planes in question?

I would be surprised if the 7 ex TCX A321 were brought from TCX, as l don't think they owned that many, more like from the lease companies.
Have we got confirmation that they are buying and not leasing?
We have not seen anything official from Jet2 as yet.

Exactly. 99% of the 'facts' posted on here currently are pure guesswork, Jet2 will announce all in good time, Jethros is not an official source btw

I can answer the second question... No. They use stairs even though the majority of departures are ex Sat 1.


Actually, Jet2 use airbridges at Stansted on regular occasions when the weather is poor or they have a large number of PRMs onboard.

Might need to remind everyone, this is a 'Rumour' Forum, not a facts forum.
Everyone's entitled to their educated (or non-educated) guesses

Why would they not use the airbridge every time? They happily use them at GLA and MAN?

I very much doubt jet2 will announce the details of its aircraft financial transactions anywhere. Hence the reason why people are asking on a rumour forum.

Speed of boarding - boarding via two sets of steps is quicker than via a single airbridge access at the front - same with disembarkation.

Ryanair use steps for the same reason - except they do it all the time, whatever the weather conditions.

However, airbridges are used whenever the weather is poor or deemed a better option (ie large number of PRM passengers).

I have never seen a Jet2 aircraft attached to an airbridge at Stansted. Ever.

They rarely use the airbridge at NCL

Ricco43 28th Oct 2019 20:58

Thatís not strictly true. They use them far more often now than they ever did. They are usually held for the Emirates, TUI 788 or TCX flights with them being bigger stands. One of them isnít around anymore. It also doesnít help that there are only two(9 and 10) that Jet2 can use.

Not true, they use Airbridges often at NCL. At least 5 of todayís departures used airbridges.

Chill your pants Cuillin Hills.

I only stated I have never seen a Jet2 aircraft attached to an airbridge at Stansted. I happen to be there sometimes once a week. You seem to think itís a regular occurrence. Based on my regular observations at Stansted, I happen to disagree. That is allowed you do realise? :rolleyes:

No need to be such a drama queen. This is a professional forum for mostly grown ups. :ok:

AirportPlanner1 29th Oct 2019 00:08

Iíve also never seen Jet2 use a bridge at STN. However I boarded Ryanair through a bridge last year (not at STN admittedly) so yeah these things do happen.

At Glasgow, they board the front via the airbridge and rear by steps, why wouldnít they do that at Stansted? I presume must be down to deals regards fees. Anyway given the weather in Scotland it would be on 90% of the time to avoid the rain.

Ryanair don't use airbridges unless forced to do so as it costs money to use them.

Using airbridges is just as quick at boarding via steps only, especially as not all the passengers are at the gate when boarding starts. Jet2 uses them all the time at GLA unless they are at a stand that does not have them or are at Gate 30.

2 sets of steps used for pax boarding/disembarking for a 737 800 or a 757 for instance is much quicker than an air-bridge/jetty as long as the ground staff get both the front and rear steps on PDQ...

Also today the ramp ground staff also have to faff about for ages (for H&S reasons gone mad) in setting up an elaborate chain link barrier system and cones to stop pax walking under the wing - this also wastes time on a quick turnaround if the ramp guys don't arrive with the kit or it is not left on the stand (more junk on the apron)
Back in the day the ground staff girl/boy boarding/meeting the flight, (or the No.4 CC would get off first) and would stand at the end of the wing to guide the pax accordingly - it's not rocket science lol

Not strictly true. I flew with Ryanair to and from BCN back in 2017 and the airbridge was used for my arrival and for my departure a few days later. It took me by surprise as it was the first time I've ever seen a FR flight use an airbridge and on a FR flight I was on, but it would seem that they do use them in places and my assumption was that it wasn't possible to avoid using one at the terminal they use at BCN.
