They're now getting 3 A321s. There's two in storage/maintenance at St Athan awaiting things to improve before they enter service. With the gradual retirement of the 757s by 2024, expect more A321s to join the fleet.

The two A321s awaiting delivery are ex Thomas Cook machines dating from around 2014. Currently in storage at St Athan. Other ex Thomas Cook aircraft of similar age/hours are still available if they decide to add more.

Ah, thankyou. I actually misunderstood, thinking that "The Flying Stool" was a reference to a particular aircraft. I now see that it is a username on the thread! I must refresh my observational skills ...

The GDN flights from STN because there are more MUFC supports in the London area? Sorry, couldn't resist a footie team dig!

And TUI say they cannot get extra slots in OPO so are putting on 787s due to demand...

What is going on with Jet2. Competition is ramping up taking advantage of robust demand for flights.

Surely one would expect some sort of response from them. Not word from any of my colleagues there.

Really weird.

Not really that weird, their CEO was on the internet a few weeks ago being interviewed for some travel magazine programme.

He said that at the beginning of May the government hadn’t given enough information about where would be open to fly to, which was a problem as they not only had to get aircraft and crews flying again but seasonal staff recruited in all the resorts (they are self handling at most airports and have a lot more resort staff than others because they are primarily a holiday company, not just an airline). Waiting until June gives them a better idea of where will be open, and they can avoid recruiting lots of staff abroad, and paying them at resorts which may not open up yet.

Sounded very sensible.

Of course Jet2 accept modular students. Just apply for the apprenticeship program when things eventually start moving again (obviously a long way off at this stage).

You’ll spend a year working on a very basic salary in different company departments, learning how the business works - Ops, cabin crew, flight planning etc. After approx 12 months you’ll start your rating and become a second officer. The first year can be tough for some (those who want everything handed to them on a plate) but for those who put the work in it’s a great deal. Most importantly of all Jet2 are looking for your qualities as a pilot not the size of mummy and daddy’s slush fund.

The problem is that the government aren’t going to make it very clear where they can fly in June either, until about a week before if they’re lucky. So it’s the same problem as everyone else, just six weeks later. And of course with this Indian scariant now sending vast swathes back behind the sofa, green list shoo-ins for the end of June are probably less likely now.

I was very surprised to see Jet2 resist setting up a Portugal program after the announcement. Even starting over half term, they’d have had 3 weeks to prepare. Capacity U.K.-FAO over half term is going to be above the summer peak in August 2019, and demand is meeting supply.

Are Jet2 capable of temporarily switching their business model from "package holiday company that operates its own flights" to "LCC airline" without losing more money than aircraft remaining on the ground ?

TUI have the advantage of sending substantial numbers of people on holiday from multiple countries, not just the UK - this diversification of country risk dependency allows them to do more things than Jet2
