    There’s also a large office for IT in Sheffield.

    My understanding is that lffh won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. There are plans I believe to put in a lift and move a few things around as space is tight. Some offices that have just had a lick of paint down by the media building will also be taken.

    It’s been known for a while ever since Asda left that Jet2 would be taking the whole mint building. Again this is for expansion not amalgamating the existing lffh operation into it.

    For me I think you need the head office where there are good transportation options and unfortunately we know LBA is horrific so until that’s sorted most of the big meeting stuff will stay in the city.

    Hopefully in the future a large purpose built HQ can be constructed around LBA.

    :wtf:

    The airport could consider flattening Wharfedale walk and building a better building with more floors there for them. No transitional slope to worry about there. Thats one way of moving them from LFFH.

    G-JZHU gone tech in Mahon today. Was on the return to LBA, fully boarded and doors ready to close. Felt the plane rock from side after a loud thud. The starboard forward cargo hold door used for loading luggage received damage as the loader was withdrawing from the aircraft. Damage fully inspected by captain. Presumably unable to verify that the aircraft would maintain structural integrity at altitude. Without an immediate engineer present to confirm this, and with the crew rapidly running out of hours, standby aircraft and crew from Alicante arrived 3 hrs later. Original crew flew back with us in; captain and co pilot with the pax in main cabin and cabin crew on jump seats and in cockpit. Both sets of crew were great. Complimentary food and drink vouchers at Mahon and free snack box and drinks for every pax inflight back to Leeds. All in all, a good response from Jet2 unfortunately let down by shambolic arrangement by baggage handlers and ground transport at LBA. I have to say, it was quite sad leaving Mahon seeing G-JZHU sat on the tarmac all by itself. Wonder how long it will take to get back

    Someone in Mahon is going to be in bother then, breaking a nearly new 737 won't go down well. Lets hope the damage is minor and there is no problem with the structural integrity of the airframe.

    On a positive note for Jet2 recently been to Jersey and back. Both flights were early. The saturday flight out looked full and the tuesday inbound probably had a max of 20 spare seats. Good friendly on board service and no problems at all with LV on the outbound and FN inbound

    I see G-LSAI launched at noon to PMI and is now back on UK soil in EMA, suggesting the morning departure from EMA had a wobble down in PMI on arrival. G-DRTC according to flightradar so one of the recent Air China / Transaero acquisitions.

    Clearly not a quick fix for Jet2 to have launched a rescue flight as they won't beat the 3 hour late rule so no doubt some EU compo claims going in. Probably from the same people who moan about holiday prices going up year on year lol.

    Not sure about Ibiza for easter, the island only wakes up the first week in June.
    In addition the new rules on music licences, tourist tax have seen a significant reduction in tourist numbers so far this summer season. Growth in u.k. tourist numbers for 2017 was half that of the previous year, the third year in a row of falling growth. The doubling of the tourist tax for 2018, has already had a profound effect on this years numbers.
    Hotels this week end started to offer reductions of up to 40% on currant prices to try to encourage more tourists, however, u.k. weather and for youngsters the huge curtailment of club opening hours has had a huge effect
    Whilst I love Ibiza at Easter, the major resorts are dead, the main season used to start the third week in May and the club openings the first week in June, now its June before the season in full swing, now ending end of september, rather then mid october.

    Anybody know why this mornings Jet2 LS202 from Amsterdam was made to circle over Leeds to allow the BA flight from Heathrow to land first. Looking at flightradar the BA flight would have been a good five minutes behind the Jet2 flight yet was given priority making LS202 circle and then come in for another approach and landing.

    Looks like Jet2's Boeing 737-800, G-JZHP may have gone tech down route in Funchal. As i see the inbound EXS390 is showing an 8 and a half hour delay. Was scheduled in at 15:40, but now "Expected" at 00:15
