Well, LGW base is a strong rumour for the next 2-3 years. Slot availability is an issue, as weíd need critical mass to make it viable. We already have a 737 Winter flying program there Oct-Mar.

As for the Airbus, thereís a delay in deliveries, meaning current airframes are training aircraft with line Pilots just keeping current.

Iím trying to create positive vibes for this idea to the universe/management, for personal reasons.

I thought they were meant to be buying BA Euroflyer? Or was it easyJet? Maybe there will be another secret meeting in Leeds about buying Wizzair.

When are the A330Neos due again?

Are you getting confused between rumours, which you have read or heard somewhere, and facts, which you are not privy to?

I often wonder why you spend so much time commenting about an airline you were rejected from, it's a bit sad. Move on, maybe get a hobby.

Well Iím just keeping the dream alive.

Given the Winter ops we already have there, itís not a huge leap. Plenty of FD live around the area so wouldnít be an issue to crew.

I am pretty sure if that was happening, the resident Jet2 Jobsworth would make sure you know about it.

Gatwick has hundreds of spare slots in the Winter and no spare (peak) slots in the Summer. So itís a huge leap.

If LGW is the dream, just go to BA Euroflyer.

Ha ha, was on the cards at one pointÖ but too much hard work for too little reward, no thanks. Horses for courses.

Three of the rumours you mention are just silly speculations by internet users. One of the rumours actually has very serious substance to it based on cost savings, future fleet renewal and flexibility of crew at the largest base. Watch this space.

Actually, by dispelling most of the nonsense that your lot spew out on this forum, Iím contributing significant balance to the thread for those considering making big and often irreversible career moves.

For example, I hope 737 jockey didnít join Jet2 on the back of ďstrong rumoursĒ of a LGW base spouted around on here - or worse, false promises from management.

The fact that you bite every time is just a little bonus.

Donít worry about me Boss, I joined with eyes wide open. I got my first base preference and LGW would just be a bonus due to being a bit closer to home and avoid the dreaded Dartford crossing, I suspect there are quite a number of others who feel the same.

Jet 2 is great. Company, people, conditions and frankly, workload, albeit with busy Summers! I have very little to complain about, and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys short haul and being in your own bed each night, and not flying 700/800/900 hours a year. Thatís just my experience and thoughts so far, as always, itís horses for courses.

So you're a crusader! Selflessly trawling the Jet2 threads in the quest for truth and justice for all? You're not just a sad, disaffected Jet2 reject endlessly trolling the Jet2 threads because you weren't good enough to be employed by an airline you hold in such contempt.

You do realise what the 'R' in PPRuNe stands for...don't you?

The same could be said of you on other non Jet2 threads where all you offer nothing of any value

You don’t seem to like the taste of the medicine that you so often dish out yourself.

Grow up for goodness sake.

On the contrary I offer my opinion or fact. I do not actively deny or refute actual facts about anything I have no knowledge of. Unlike certain posters who have been rejected by Jet2 who have gone all...sulky.

Hello All,

Has anyone heard back from Jet2 A320 assessments in Feb 24? If yes, how long after the assessment did you hear back?

Thanks and good luck!

Worked for Jet2 for 6 years. Great airline and a fantastic way to conclude my flying career. No agenda, no points scoring over other airlines which I know have their pros and cons. Very down to earth company in line with the oop North roots. Just my opinion of course.

Anyone had any update or offers come through since passing assessments lately ? I've had an email asking for base confirmation and notice period but think it is pretty generic. From what I hear, they are pretty maxed out on the training front Good times for the industry as a whole just now!
