5a. In the morning, Emma's left in plane (6) = JACKET
(please note this is one of the themed answers and therefore there is no definition in the clue for "jacket".- just the wordplay.). I see "jet" for plane but can't see how the rest = "ack"

24d Farmer with time for a little sex (5) = GILET
(again this is a themed answer and therefore the clue does not have the definition for "gilet", just the wordplay. I can see Giles (farmer) + T(ime) but how does the "S" get deleted?

Many thanks

24 just got it
a little sex = S, therefore T(ime) for S = swop the S for a T, therefore Giles becomes Gilet
Ack Emma = am = Air Force (?) slang for morning
Ack Emma is RAF code for a.m.
