However Matt,

I take your point to a certain degree. This morning between 6am and 7am Tui had six departures. Jet2 had the same between those times....yet Jet2 had zero take offs between those hours and all of Tui's left. Now that ain't ATC issues on Jet2's behalf!

indeed Karl, its not always just related to ATC delays, maybe Jet2 also have a shortage of ground crew, or even checking in staff on Sunday, or could it be connected with re-fuelling, maybe swissport get priority over the fuel tankers before Jet2? - Most likely a combination of everything!

I think the likely cause us the ongoing chaos at Amsterdam. Along with Brussels and Frankfurt, they have had huge problems with getting sufficient staff post Covid. This fact is often overlooked by the British media, who tend to regard airport chaos as only our problem.

Majority of the problems in the UK, according to the media, are only UK problems. The reality is they don't want to face up and tell the truth as we know ... the media are just as responsible for the chaos caused now following the last 2 years as the governments decisions themselves.

Clearly the chaos isn't only in the UK or Europe for that matter with Australian airports reporting the same problems.

Americans are also suffering a pilot shortage too. And other problems. You'd be forgiven to think that this is to put people off flying = less demand = less flights = less emissions.

And then also this.


It's a sh*t storm that's for sure.

Are we to believe the western media? I don't believe a word. Maybe the west should stop sanctioning Russia I know thats controversial but there is only country that is so far winning. It's certainly not anyone in the west.

As for airlines this would depend how far they've hedged fuel etc. I reckon an airline like Jet2 ran by acute business man like Phillip Meeson will have oil hedged a couple years in advance. So in reality the price hikes, should they come, will be felt in 3/4 years time.

according to Sherburnflyer92 on the Leeds/Bradford thread, its rumoured that BHX might be getting the 3 Jet2 A321's (ex Thomas Cook) next summer, to possibly replace the Smartlynx A321's, with the new A321's NEO going to Manchester initially.

Never said all 3. Said some. It also depends on the delivery schedule of the Neo's and how many are going to be in service for S23.

Not sure if it’s Smartlynx replacement or not could well be they use SmartLynx too.
