Re: How do Jet2 operate their scheduled vs charter operations/aircraft?

As for profit, I think you need to do more research. Prior to COVID Jet2 made profits of between £265-270 million, whereas TUI made €900 million. How much of TUI's profit that you stated is attributable to its UK operations? I couldn’t tell you as the companies results are all presented together (a...

Re: JET2 - what next ?

How Easyjet acted during this pandemic has put a lot of people off Easyjet Holidays which was not doing as well as hoped in the first place. Whereas Jet2Holidays have had praise left right and centre and certainly will benefit from it going forward. I wouldn't discount how people forget that for th...

They’ll be out of the rolling stock business as well if their delivery timetable doesn’t improve.

Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019, Production suspended

I read the 40% figure on this Forum and do not know how accurate it is. I am one of those refusing to trust the MAX upon RTS, but I also spent 3h 15 (plus non-flight time) in a 737-800 today. Boeing's biggest PR asset is its own products, the 737 is a wonderful plane (how it gave birth to the MAX, ...

Re: Crazy BA 744 go-around LAS today

According to the FR24 flight path - which is most likely correct - he flew over 1R at 2100ft and then did a normal go around. No touch down. At 29:56 or so the ATC asks for the reason for the missed, but I can't understand the pilot's response. Sounds like a routine flight to me. OP, are you sure t...
