Jet2 757 fleet plans

Sun Oct 06, 2019 8:49 pm

Hi all,

This is my first post so please feel free to let me know if something isn’t right.

I flew on a Jet2/LS 757 to Tenerife in August and a quick check of the reg number (forgotten which but it was silver and orange) revealed it’s age as 31.2 years old.

We flew back on G-VYGL which was a very nice and smooth flight for my first time on an Airbus, I’ve only flown on Boeing metal before.

It was discussed already 6 months ago, but has anything changed since on replacing the remaining 30 + year old 737-300 and 757-200’s?

Some must be nearing their cycle/flight hour limits by now.

Thanks,

The Worm123

G-LSAG/H/I were due to be withdrawn at the end of the summer season, however in light of the Thomas Cook collapse it would appear they are now staying for a while longer. What their hours/cycles are like I don't know, but the opportunities to add extra flights arising from recent events has probably caused some airlines to at least reconsider their short-term fleet plans.

I think the logical replacement for these planes will be more 737's. The 733 can obviously be replaced with NG's or even MAX jets, but the 757 are much more difficult to replace, probably a downsize to a 737 or more modern 757's.

Not too shabby, they should have plenty of life in them if needed for several more years.

I am hoping they manage to keep the 757s flying a little longer. LS seem not to mind flying older jets, and they keep them in great shape too, so that shouldn't be a problem for the immediate future.
Having said that, I don't see them delving into a new type for when the beloved 757 goes....they'd probably acquire more second-hand 738s capacity-wise, and probably simply lease in extra capacity (Air tanker A330s?) when needed for their few [particularly] busier seasonal routes to the Med and occasional long-hauls, like the NY Xmas shopping trips. Just my 2 cents..

No 757-300 is anywhere close to 30 years old yet.

There have been some rumours of jet2 picking up some A321s from TCX. Its not clear if these would be operated by LS, or one of their wet-lease suppliers.

That said, what is wrong with the 757s? They are in great shape inside, have decent legroom and ideal for the UK-Med routes they operate on. High density UK-Med flights have been the mainstay of 757 operations in Europe.

I think the plans are for more -800's. That can cover most of what they want to do with the leased in A330's for just the high season peaks. I don't see the need for A321's.

Interesting move by Jet2

Jet2 From UK Invests in India Through the Launch of Jet2 Travel Technologies in Pune

Jet2 (Jet2.com and Jet2 Holidays) today announced its aggressive growth plans in India at the launch of Jet2 Travel Technologies (Jet2TT), its global software development & innovation centre in Pune. J2TT plans to build and nurture a strong technology workforce of over 150 professionals in the coming 18 months to build world-class travel software solutions. The company will also hire fresh talent from various colleges across Pune through graduate schemes and internship programs. The state-of-the-art 16,000 sq. ft. space would operate in a Virtual Captive Centre (VCC) model, which would be powered by Pune based Dataction Analytics.

Not sure how much longer the NY flights will last they seem to have reduced them each year for last few years.

The Christmas flights to EWR is one route where the 757's range is taken full advantage of, though they could also be serviced by A330's if they continued long-term.

Haven't they recently signed a long-term lease for the a330s with AirTanker where they will be painted in the full livery - I guess this could be seen as a partial replacement for the 757s, along with more 738s, if they're going to stick with Boeing for their main fleet?

According to Jethros.org.uk Airbus G-VYGL has had the lease date extended until November 2025 and G-VYGM until November 2022. Both still being leased from Air Tankers as before.

With G-VYGK to join them next summer, but from what I can tell there is no confirmation yet as to whether this is summer only or a third long term lease.

The Thomas Cook 757-300’s went to Condor I don’t think there are any in the UK. All of Jet2’s 757s are 752.

That’s good to know, I flew home on G-VYGL and it was a very nice smooth flight, my first time on a non-Boeing aircraft and I was very impressed with how quiet the A332 was compared to a 752.

I do as well, one of them is only 22 I think so that could be around for a decade to come.

Thank you for sharing that website it’s quite informative I looked up some random G regs to try :), I’m surprised they aren’t closer to 90k flight hours at >= 30 years old.

Interesting to note Jet LS917 MAN - TFS is usually flown by a 757 or a an AirTanker A332 but tonight it was flown by EC-MII an A333, is this a new lease?

Jet2 leased this aircraft after Thomas Cook collapsed. The lease was arranged very quickly to allow Jet2 to up their capacity in the immediate aftermath of TCX and for the October school holidays. I think it's only with them until the end of the month.

I’m surprised that Jet2 didn’t buy their own A332 instead of extending the lease by 6 years, it offers the route versatility they seem to like from the 757’s.

G-VYGL could be going to Mallorca one day and then Newark the next.

Thanks for the explanation, I wonder if they manage to fill an A333 on European flights? I remember the AirTanker being full to capacity last time I flew one.

Even that depends what clauses are in the contract with Air Tanker.

Very true, and if it were that easy I’m almost 100% sure Jet2 would have binned Smartlynx already with the amount of drama they’ve caused this summer

That could be a 757 replacement right there.

I did a search of twitter and an enthusiast asked them about the paint job on the new planes, they only said they couldn’t advise on the paint job, they didn’t outwardly deny acquiring A321’s.

From data on Jethros, it looks like LS is taking at least two of the ex-Monarch A321 frames from the TCX fleet. That raises an eyebrow as it means LS is taking the IAE V2500 engine variant, after being a CFM user on the 737s.

The 7 proposed aircraft tally nicely with the 7 leased narrowbody Airbuses from summer 2019. There might not be any direct link to 757s at this stage.

Even that depends what clauses are in the contract with Air Tanker.

These are Strategic Reserve aircraft.

They are bought by the AirTanker consortium as surge aircraft for the RAF in times of military need, and the consortium needs someone to operate them rather than just let them sit idle. On request they must be returned to AirTanker and the RAF immediately.

That means nonstandard lease contracts which could indeed be cheaper to reflect that clause plus others which (allegedly) exist. For instance operating to non-NATO countries was conspicuous by its absence when TCX had them.

The seat pitch on the A330 seems to a few inches more than the 757’s, as much I like the 757 I do prefer widebodies, more toilets and it was easier to get up and walk around during the flight.

In fact that would be less onerous for Jet2 than it was for TCX since the only non-NATO destinations they normally fly to are Malta and Cyprus. Admittedly there's GVA, but that's bi-national. with the other nation being France. TCX had lots of Tunisia and Egypt flights. And even in the case of Cyprus, there is an RAF base on the island, so non-NATO might not apply there.

A330 cannot go to Cyprus. And i don't think we'll see them in MLA for a long time. Currently MLA is a 738 destination from MAN - so only logical upgrade is to a 757 in the wake of TC or another flight or two.

Any ideas on the identity of the acquired A321’s yet? Jethro’s is still only showing acquired and blank G regs, but is the easiest assumption that they are former TCX?

These Twitter critters think they are going to be split across Manchester and Birmingham:

That means nonstandard lease contracts which could indeed be cheaper to reflect that clause plus others which (allegedly) exist. For instance operating to non-NATO countries was conspicuous by its absence when TCX had them.

In fact that would be less onerous for Jet2 than it was for TCX since the only non-NATO destinations they normally fly to are Malta and Cyprus. Admittedly there's GVA, but that's bi-national. with the other nation being France. TCX had lots of Tunisia and Egypt flights. And even in the case of Cyprus, there is an RAF base on the island, so non-NATO might not apply there.


A330 cannot go to Cyprus. And i don't think we'll see them in MLA for a long time. Currently MLA is a 738 destination from MAN - so only logical upgrade is to a 757 in the wake of TC or another flight or two.


What do you mean the A330 cannot go to Cyprus? In what sense?
Flying is breathing..no planes no life..

A330 from Air Tanker now allowed into Cyprus - some legal treaty or something.

Evelop is however allowed to operate and has operated over the past month both into PFO and LCA. If that lease is confirmed for S20, i suspect we will see it on this route. Or if a Titan A330 is signed, Titan A330 will be used.

Jethro’s Jet2 fleetlist shows 2 of the A321’s as being G-TCV’s, with the 4 aircraft that share those digits being G-TCVA, G-TCVB, T-TCVC and G-TCVD.

All 4 are former Thomas Cook planes, but which 2 have been bought I don’t know.

G-LSAG is currently circling the south Coast of Tenerife, it's a 757 so it can of course dump fuel which is what I assume it's doing before diverting back to TFS. Tenerife South to Leeds Airport Flight LS224.

You sure about this 757 being capable of dumping fuel? From what I can surmise besides one a.net post to the contrary, 757s do not have that capability.

Aye IIRC the B757 does not have fuel dump capability. Actually I don't think the B767 does either.

Friends of mine at Jet2 all say G-LSAG is the dog of the fleet... but still a fine looking bird!

Looks like she is safely on the ground now at TFS.

LS917 (MAN - TFS) and LS918 (TFS - MAN return trip) has been flown by a 737-800 the past few times, which is the first break from the 757/A330 combo yet. I'm not sure if it is a sign of things to come or just less capacity is needed however.

Thanks for the correction, I thought it was only the 737 that couldn't dump fuel, but you learn something new everyday!

They are very fine looking planes for their age, Jet2 look after them well even now at 25-32 years old.I had my picture taken in the cockpit of G-LSAA at TFS in the summer and the cockpit still looks fairly modern even at 30. G-LSAG looks to have landed back at TFS now.

The first two owned A321’s appear to be G-TCVC and G-TCVD, former TCX.

The A321 near enough matches the 757 in terms of capacity and what Jet2 need for short haul flights. The 757 is versatile for the New York trips, but if the demand is there then the A330 makes sense and boosts capacity on short haul.
The 737 and 757 aren't common types, so unless they go for short haul commonality in the 737 alone with a capacity drop, the A321 can simply replace the 757 with the A330 being an addition for needed capacity and the New York trips.

The 737-800 does the 917/918 TFS flights during the winter on the "traditional" weaker days - Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

G-LSAG has gone to storage and presumably scrap.
