I agree its far better to say its for safety reasons than to tell the truth, passenger are so thick they much prefer that you lie about why you have just cancelled their holidays rather than tell the truth, this way you build up a long term relationship with them.

If it good enough for the company to be less than honest with its employee's then its good enough for our customers, we wouldn't want to be accused of double standards, would we?

Doesn't the Barcelona Court ruling and the Andalucia Governments ruling on not being able to charge for boarding passes also apply to Jet2, as well as Ryanair?

Completely agree facelookbovvered; telling customers, "we're cancelling your holiday because we can't make enough money out of you", is a great way to establish long term relationships with them.

Good one! But JET2 offer a check-in on line or a check-in at the airport service at different prices. The issue of the boarding pass is FREE or isn't mentioned and therefore may be assumed to be free, as there is no charge advertised.

FR on the other hand charge you for printing your own boarding pass and hammer you for printing it for you at the airport. According to the Spanish judge in Barcelona airtickets and boarding passes should be issued free of charge by any airline for their passengers or any other documentation needed to embark.

There is no mention in the judgement that check-in services have to be provided free of charge by any airline to their passengers BUT it would be a good idea to get a good look at the Laws being referred to by the Barcelona judge, International, Spanish and European to see what services a passenger is entitled to have free of charge once having paid a fare for a flight to an airline.

Jet2, altough with a choice of airport check-in at a higher fee, offers online check-in at a price as well, and if you don't print the boarding card you have to pay 17,50/24 at the airport. The passenger is only advised of this charge at the booking confirmation where there's a box saying "Not printing out your boarding card MAY result in you having to pay an additional fee at the airport". The charge doesn't apply to infants, children or passengers that need assistence though. I'm not sure if the fact that they offer the check in type choice makes any difference on the way they charge the boarding card print fee at the airport like Ryanair...

Year round. Only some of the winter routes available so far. Hopefully some replacements for the dropped MIR and SSH.

Jet2 Plus

Think it has been discontinued in favour of MyJet2 and the 'bundle' options.

How's G-GDFC working out for Jet2 so far? I see it's been operating MAN-FCO since it started service. Any more 738 on the way, besides the one announced from TUI?

It's doing very well, obviously carrying 40 more passengers for roughly the same cost of a 733 is proving popular and I do believe a decision has been made about some more. The -800's will also be doing Tel Aviv, Murcia, Funcal, Faro and Palma I do believe once they are in full swing come April/May.

Mr Meeson and his side-kick have been "touring the world" for bargains and word has it that 6 more -800's will be coming next year, to replace the leases on G-CGET, GDFA & GDFB and for growth. We will see!

Jorvik...Jet2Plus got binned just like the Ancillary Revenue Manager who dreamt it up..bout time they binned the GPU policy too, before they put a ramp rat through the Nos 1...rumour is, they tried to re-introduce it again at LBIA...H.S.E / Airport weren't impressed by lack of documentation...when will the jibbering jock ever learn.

Was on the NG the other day a nice bit of kit and it looks a lot bigger than the 733 the winglets give a sense of size. Looking forward to more of them soon hopefully, mind you i would be worried if i was on the 757 fleet, the NG does 90% of the same job for 66% of the cost and with fuel on the rise again finding some where to fly them profitably that the NG can't do for less is going to be a challenge.

Me thinks they will become parked billboards next winter
