For Spotters: New JP Ships Monday!

Talked to BuchAIR today about another order and the person I talked to said the new JP Airline Fleets book will ship Monday 26May.

Looking forward to it!

I guess it's since they got more points than Germany, and Switzerland wasn't even there, at the ESC last night  Laugh out loud

Anyone with a link to the cheapest place to buy them (on the web, that ís)

Well hopefully it is a descent attempt this year, not like the rubbish they came out with last year. I have been a loyal JP customer for the last 9 years. This is their last chance.

Hi Lars,

Thanks a lot for the info, I had tried several days to find that out. I'm really looking forward to the new issue, and I agree with Cx flyboy, let's hope it'll be a better issue than last year's.

@cx_flyboy:

Are you referring to the problem with the missing 742's? Are there other mishaps in the 2002/2003-edition, other than that?

Thomas_Jaeger:

So no errors of the same type as last years book, from what you can see ?

Of course I always find some small errors at European airlines, but I haven't found that big ones like last year so far.

Some aircraft shown as delivered which are not yet delivered but will be delivered in the next two months or so, some aircraft already deleted although they will remain in the fleet for a few more months (e.g. Buzz BAe 146s). No missing airlines, aircraft types so far ...

IwantaBBJ,

The major problem was the missing 742s. I had to go through each airline and write them in myself. Having a loose few pages of 742s was bound to get dropped somewhere.
Aside from that there are always lots of small problems every year. Wrong callsigns of airlines, aircraft listed that have long gone, wrong seating configurations, things like that. I can live with those mistakes alone, but not together with missing the 742s. I remember a few years ago didn't they skip the entire British Airways 742 fleet? If there was a credible alternative to the JP I would have gone for it already. If they screw up this year I will go for the International Airlines Guide, or whetever it's called.

Has anyone of those who ordered it via mail-delivery already received it (Particulary here in Switzerland)?
