Maybe a small base at Humberside could work if DSA does indeed close.

Kind regards

Does Bournemouth have the same draw (ease of use, transport links, pleasant and efficient experience) as Southampton for the Southern, wealthy Home Counties contingent?

I do believe in "build it and they will come" and Bournemouth could take a Jet2 base of desired size with any of their current aircraft types from day 1 without additional considerations being made however an established BOH base would negate a future SOU base should SOU become suitable.

I personally couldn't see Jet2 entering any new market with less than 4 based aircraft and given the catchment area, I imagine any prospective South/South East base would have to have scope to grow to a similar size as their newest bases at a similar pace. What's that? 10 A/C+ each for Bristol, Stansted and Birmingham. That's most definitely too much of an ask for Southampton currently and technically feasible but a tall order for Bournemouth. I imagine the morning rush with more than 4 aircraft would be a thoroughly miserable experience at both airports as they currently stand.

I would love to see a sizeable Jet2 Southampton base... But it strikes me that the required work would be too much.

Are the A330's staying with Jet2 over the Winter like they did in the 2019 Winter season?

All lease aircraft going back to respective operators for the winter season as it currently stands. There is now no plan to have any leased aircraft past the 6th November.

EC-MAJ last day flying is today and goes back to Madrid tomorrow.

Probably not, No direct rail connection and further off the M/way network.

They are returning in S23 though aren't they? Which 3 will it be? G-VYGL/G-VYGM I presume, with another?

Still no update on when the first 321s arrive and where they’re going?

Jet2 suffered a few issues with their 757-200 fleet yesterday. I believe G-LSAE had to turn back after departure from FUE on LS910 yesterday and land at TFS. I believe a technical issue was the cause.

G-LSAI was meant to go to AYT on LS895 but was swapped due to a fault too.

I also noticed G-LSAC moved from MAN - SNN today. I assume for some work? I flew on AC last week.

AE did indeed divert to Tenerife due to a technical issue, believed to be engine related.

AI had a broken toilet door that would have taken quite a while to fix so the crew swapped onto AA instead to keep the delay to a minimum, nothing too exciting. AI was back flying this morning.

AC has gone to Shannon for a C Check, she’ll be followed by the majority of the fleet having similar checks over the winter.

According to Jethros, Jet2 has acquired 6 second hand B737-800's. (all mid-life 13/14 years old)

G-JZBT, G-JZBU. G-JZBV & G-JZBW - all ex SAS Norge.

Also G-JZBX & G-JZBY - both ex Sunwing.

Any truth in rumour that the Boeing 757's are returning home to LBA next summer?

There’s been talk of a Titan 757 being based in Leeds next summer but the Jet2 planes are staying in Manchester

I guess that will see the end of the remaining -300 series aircraft and probably destined for Kemble?

Nope, the 300's still flying at LBA in 23.

These are for expansion at Bristol, EMA and Newcastle possibly.

Interesting. I guess you buy what is available and affordable but I thought that all additions from now on would have been 321s.

Wonder If this allows for fewer leased in machines?

Well they now have good experience of old 321's now and I am sure they won't have been pleased with the ones at BHX until they changed their schedule to a 3 aircraft operation using 4 aircraft on rotation. The solution has worked well but hardly an ideal situation and the original schedule was 4 active A321's on most days. I doubt that this was a load-related decision from looking at the CAA stats and local knowledge.

it had long been rumoured for a few months that there would be a tenth at NCL for S23. Unlikely to be pushed to 11 I would very much doubt but fingers crossed.

Thought it was only 8 738s this summer with the 9th dropping in for the school holiday season from EDI ?
