RAF's Royal Flight BAe 146-CC2, ZE701 came into Leeds as KRF17 this morning from RAF Northolt with the Prime Minister on board and parked at Multiflight.
He went on an unscheduled visit Todmorden to see the damaged caused from last weeks flash floods. After about an 2 hour stay he returned and the aircraft departed out to Brussels as KRF17 again.

Meanwhile this evening, American registered Boeing 737 Business Jet (BBJ) N7600K has also just arrived and parked up on the Multiflight apron.

For anyone who didn't see the Boeing 737BBJ, N6700K at LBA last night, I've got good news for you.

You've all got a second chance to see it as it's coming back into LBA tomorrow afternoon again, Saturday 30/06/12. ETA 13:30 - ETD 14:15

The RAF's BBMF Spitfire PS915 made a visit to Leeds on Saturday afternoon while doing several flypast in the region while she was actually stationed out of nearby RAF Church Fenton for the weekend.

Due to aircraft shortages in the Boeing 737-300 fleet Jet2 are subbing in aircraft to cover the LBA flying programme.

First up is Hamburg Airways, Airbus A319, D-AHHA which is due in tomorrow to operate the Paris-Cdg, EXS315/316 service.

EXS041R = ETA 09:10 from Münster Osnabrück
EXS042R = ETD 15:30 to Münster Osnabrück

On Sunday's Swiftair's MD-83's either EC-JUF or EC-KCX will operate both the morning EXS241/242 Nice and afternoon EXS227/228 Palma.

EXS041R = ETA 08:10 from Madrid
EXS042R = ETD 21:45 to Madrid

An MD-83 wow, EXS normally go boeing or airbus like the Hamburg Airways which has subbed at MAN before. Enjoy them LBA spotters

LS have had a Mad Dog before. IIRC it was an Icelandic one they had briefly for the same reason. TF-JXA comes up in a Google search.

Seems everyone is busy this summer, subbing in stuff from all over.

How long will LS have these aircraft for, the whole summer or just 1 flight?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
I think it'll be short term, to cover maintenance and those new aircraft which are due to join the fleet. ACMI leasing is not cheap.

The only other possibility is expanding EMA like Monarch are doing. Get in fast as Baby gets euthanised.

I guess no one read the message correctly

Hamburg Airways, Airbus A319, D-AHHA positioned in from Münster this morning as EXS041R to operate today's EXS315/316 Paris-Cdg and will the position back to Münster as EXS042R.

On Sunday's Swiftair's MD-83's EC-JUF or EC-KCX will position in from Madrid as EXS041R and operate both the EXS241/242 Nice and EXS227/228 Palma. It will then position back to Madrid as EXS042R

The reason for subbing is that Boeing 737-300Qs G-GDFE is out off service. Plus due to the late delivery of Boeing 737-300, G-GDFH and Boeing 757-200WL, G-LSAN is not helping matters.

Jet2 have leased in Swiftair, MD82, EC-JUF this evening due to the adverse weather conditions. She is currently working inbound LS198 from Ibiza ETA 20:25.

She will then depart ETD 21:00 operating the delayed outbound EXS197 service back to Ibiza.

Jet2 used Swiftair MD83 EC-KCX on Sunday to operate both the LS241/242 Nice and LS227/228 Palma rotations due to aircraft shortages.

Surprised nobody has commented on it yet!
As I was on this flight this morning (outbound) ... LS315/316 to CDG and backand I see the 196/197 return to Prague and 327/328 return to belfast were all operated by Germania 737-700 D-AGET with full Germania cabin crew and 2 LS "Agents".

Aircraft wasn't exactly top notch, but it was a really lovely change.

Thanks for the info hullspotter, glad to see that although not ideal, at least LS seems (so far, I'll probably jinx it) one step ahead of the summer season. Hopefully I havnt jinxed it and they'll do better than last summer.

No problem at all! Here's a picture of her that I got in Paris yesterday.

I know it's not the best. But this was from a bus to the terminal.

The Germania, Boeing 737-700, D-AGET has been leased until September and will remain Leeds based.

This is due to the fact that a big problem has only just been found with the latest delivered Boeing 737-300, G-GDFH which requires it to have some work done to it as directed by Boeing.

I don't suppose you know any more about the subject, do you? I was thinking along the lines of the 733 stress cracking that Southwest found on the crown skins of at least a couple of aircraft, and even caused a hole to form on one of them.

Is G-GDFH the new one with winglets?

That's G-GDFL which is the ex OO-VEG. G-GDFH is currently painted in the actual LS (not Jet2Holidays) livery without winglets.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Ah right, thanks hullspotter, will G-GDFL be rolled out anytime soon? And when it is, will it be in LS or LS holidays livery?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
whitehatter you have got it in one with your theory, It was a directive by Boeing that has not been picked up either at the end whilst it had its end of lease service by Norwegian at Southend or while it was having it's c-check in Belgrade done by Jat Tecnic,

The aircraft was painted in full Jet2 livery down in Bournemouth about 2 weeks ago and then delivered to Leeds for Seat fitting. The problem was only picked up by Jet2 own engineers while she was sat in the Hanger at Multiflight. It will now need an extensive repair and another paint job as its been scrapped back to bear metal again for these works to take place

Yep its a bit of a balls up some might say. I know they wont be using Jat down in Belgrade anymore for C-checks. They have now started using another company based in Budapest where G-CELZ is now.

Not good. The WN event was an explosive decompression but fortunately not as bad as the Aloha 737-200 that became a convertible. The rip straps caught this one and it 'just' blew a hole in the crown near the tail section.

Other 733s of similar age were found to be equally weak and Southwest had to hastily check their fleet. NDT should pick it up so if it was missed at a C or D check then that's not good at all

Due to Leeds based Boeing 737-300's G-CELB & G-CELU both going tech today, Jet2 are leasing in Cosmo Airlines, Airbus A320-212 LY-COM this afternoon.

They could be more, As 11x aircraft are required at Leeds today, But they only have 9 in service. 10 now if you count this A320.

What is not helping is the fact that with G-CELB & G-CELU both tech at Leeds, G-LSAN has not been delivered yet due to paper work, G-GDFH having its big problem and G-CELZ is down in Budapest having a C-check. Meanwhile they also G-GDFL which is having its per delivery works done in Southend.

That's 6x aircraft out of service at the beginning of the height of the summer season. Not good at all.

Jet2's Boeing 737-300, G-CELG diverting into Leeds now operating the EXS704 from Paris to Manchester service so that the aircraft can be used to help out with the problems this afternoon.

Me thinks they will be some unhappy passengers that are going to be bussed back over the hill to Manchester this afternoon

And when it is, will it be in LS or LS holidays livery?


I'm not an official person in the know of when the a/c will be out; but I heard it will be sometime next month; although don't take my word for it. And I'm HOPING it will be the actual Jet2 livery, but have the feeling it will be a Jet2Holidays livery.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
I'm hoping for the actual Jet2 livery, I'm starting to worry that they have ditched it for the Jet2 holidays livery. It's a nive livery as a one off and all but I still prefer the original, I did prefer the "2 tail" version to the "red tail" version, but I'd like to see it in normal Jet2 livery.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
Well the normal Jet2 sliver and Red livery was applied to both G-GDFH & G-GDFG due to the mainly working the shorter city routes.

The Boeing 757 fleet seems to be getting the Jet2Holidays livery due to them mainly operating the Sun routes and carrying more Jet2holidays pax..

The Cosmo Airlines Airbus A320-212, LY-COM is now night stopping at Leeds and will tomorrow operate again for Jet2 doing the EXS207/208 Murcia and EXS227/228 Palma rotations before it re-positions back to London Gatwick late in the evening.

Meanwhile the Manchester based Jet2 Boeing 737-300, G-CELG which was diverted into Leeds earlier for operational reasons has just re-positioned back to base as EXS043R after operating today's EXS241/242 Nice services.

Jet2 have now leased in Swiftair, MD83, EC-KCX to help out. It positioned in this evening from Copenhagen and will remain Leeds based until Tuesday.

Also just found out that Titan Airways, Boeing 737-300, G-POWC is also been leased by Jet2 tomorrow afternoon, It will position in from London Stansted as EXS045R at 13:30. It will then go onto operate both the EXS205/206 Amsterdam and EXS347/348 Dusseldorf rotations before positioning back to Stansted at 22:00 as EXS046R.

Mistral Air used Boeing 737-300, EI-DUS on yesterdays Rome Student Charter.

Looks like Mistral Air have added 2x more charter flights from LBA operating on Thursday, August 2nd and Tuesday, August 14th.

The Cosmo Airlines A320, LY-COM has replaced the Swiftair MD83 on lease to Jet2 but will be released once the Boeing 757-200, G-LSAN enters service. As it will become Leeds based instead of Manchester based so to be able release the leased aircraft.

I also understand that latest acquired Boeing 737-300WL, G-GDFL will also become Leeds based to replace the leased Germania, Boeing 737-700, D-AGET.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
When are G-LSAN and G-GDFL slated to enter service do you know? I was under the impression that D-AGET was in the Jet2 fleet for the whole summer season? I also believe that Jet2 have leased a Strategic Airlines A320 as well, however I think it is based at Manchester.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
G-LSAN is currently in the paint shop at Norwich and should be positioning to Leeds in the next few days for seat fitting. Meanwhile G-GDFL has already been painted into the Jet2holidays and is not due to be delivered until the end of this month for it's seat fitting. Hence it will enter service in September to replace the leased Germania, B737-700.

The leased Strategic Airlines A320 at Manchester will be replaced once, Boeing 737-300, G-CELZ returns from it's check which it's currently having in Budapest.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
so LY-COM will probably still be serving from Leeds at the end of next week-ish when it will be replaced by G-LSAN.

D-AGET will be replaced by G-GDFL in september

And the Strategic A320 will probably be replaced in a few weeks depending on how long G-CELZ is in Budapest.

Sorry to be a pest but what is the reg of the tech 733? If I remember correctly that is the reason LS uses Budapest now instead of Belgrade is it???????

I just hope LY-COM is still operating from Leeds on Tuesday 7th because I'm going down for the day, is tuesday a better choice than Saturday do you think? Finally, bad news about G-GDFL going into holidays livery sad
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
The aircraft that has problems with its skin currently in the Multiflight Hanger at Leeds is Boeing 737-300, G-GDFH.

By way Boeing 757-200 G-LSAN did a test flight out of Norwich today in her new colours so it should be heading over to Leeds very shortly. I would expect to see her enter service sometime next week so to replace the leased A320, LY-COM

Tuesday is better than Saturdays at the mo. Even better are Fridays..

Ah right, thanks, I'll have to pop down one friday then as well. Really hope to see LY-COM when I'm down. Thanks for everything.

Jet2.com Boeing 737-300, G-CELP diverted into Leeds last night operating the LS547 Newcastle to Pisa service for a Tech reason unknown at this time. She did about 5/6 curcuits round the overhead hold with wheels down to burn fuel so to be light enough for landing.

After about an hour all passengers where swapped onto Boeing 737-300, G-CELH which then went on to operate the delayed services.

Oh dear, is there anymore information on this incident? How long has CELP been flying for as I understand it was based at Stansted for a relatively long time and was used for private charter work.

A bit ironic really, CELH was removed from newcastle due to having difficulty on some of the longer routes then CELP goes tech and were stuck with CELH again. Any word on when G-LSAN will arrive in leeds?
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
G-CELP also flies out of LHR doing deportation flights. It's kept quite busy.

The rotation system does tend to do odd things to the fleet. G-CELU for example; painted with SCOTLAND titles then ended up back in England! The 738s are also starting to rotate round the system as well.

Anyone know why the Leeds-Bradford based Thomas Cook Airbus A320, G-DHJZ has just departed empty on a positioning flight to Newcastle as TCX618P?

Only asking as it has left the Leeds-Tenerife, TCX8032 pax behind in the terminal and now no aircraft to operate the flight?

Well the TCX8032 passengers who are travelling from Leeds to Tenerife and were meant to be flying on the Leeds based Thomas Cook Airbus A320, G-DHJZ this afternoon before it positioned empty up to Newcastle are now been bussed over to Manchester to use one of there based aircraft.

The inbound TCX8033 has been delayed by about 5 hours in total, It was due back for 01:30 but is now not expected until 06:50 tomorrow morning.

So as usual the LBA programme and passengers get the raw deal and shafted once again due to there operating problems at other bases.
Quote | Reply | Top of Page
It's often a case of crew availability as well as other factors. Bussing people over the hill might be a better fit than flying a plane and crew over for them, if the extra time takes the inbound flight outside hours and strands it in Tenerife.

Not good though. If anything a MAN aircraft should have gone up to NCL in an ideal world.

I agree, we wouldnt have minded a 767 if they had a spare one lying about. Thanks for the info on LP and the deportation flights, very interesting indeed. Also about CELU, yes although it is strange, personally I dont mind it knocking around NCL for a bit, I just hope we can get CELA painted ina "NEWCASTLE" livery but even then it'll probably still stay in EDI. How are the 738's being rotated around?

Anymore news on G-LSAN, I'm desperate to see LY-COM.

That is what everyone says and what I keep telling them is, they will in time (used 737 800's) but they cant just go and buy a batch of new aircraft because it would be too much of a drastic change in their business model. Anyway theres no need for new aircraft, its just, yes Jet2's planes are older, but they're also some of the most used in europe per day (I think) but their business model of buying old aircraft cheap and using them until the end of their life works. Why change?

Hope I've explained a bit for you happy

Air Nostrum, possibly rugby related?

Unlikely, as Leeds Carnegie RFC, having been relegated from the Premiership a couple of years ago, currently play in the RFU Championship and aren't involved in any of the European Rugby Competitions, plus the 2012 RFL season has now ended, so Leeds Rhinos are presently enjoying some well-earned rest and recuperation!

Its not often I go on about Thomson Airways weekly positioning flight but there is something quite different about this weeks part based aircraft.

Working inbound now is Boeing 757-200WL, G-OOBH which is positioning in from Birmingham as TOM868F and the difference been is that she is the first aircraft in the fleet to visit Leeds/Bradford wearing the new Thomson "Dreamliner" livery.

Adria Airways used A319, S5-AAR again this morning which positioned in from Brussles and operated out to Marrakesh on the 3rd and final charter for Land Rover.

Meanwhile Jet2 sent Boeing 757-200WL, G-LSAK direct to New York-Newark as EXS087 on the first of this years 2x Christmas Shopping trips.
