On both occasions I had food it was easily as good if not better than that served by TOM or TCX. A starter of melon pieces followed by a hot meal with bread roll, a desert, cheese and crackers and a chocolate, no hot drink but a carton of water is supplied in the pack. In my case the outbound meal was beef and the return chicken both quite tasty, and the deserts chocolate pudding/mouse and apple crumble. Don't expect gourmet food, it is an airline remember, and you won't be dissapointed.

Standard airline fare but edible.I booked my last premier meal March but have not booked another one since because they had stopped supplying tea or coffee with the meal.Replaced it with a small cup of water.If you want tea or coffee it's to pay for.
When they started the premier meals it was reasonable value for what you paid.I am flying with them in 2 weeks but have not booked a meal.At the end of the day you pays your money and takes a chance.

Exactly, but if you intend to eat on the plane and haven't booked a meal make sure you are sat right at the back or right at the front as they will run out of food to buy after about 10/15 rows, always due to a 'busy outbound flight'.

Jet2 Meals

I have the Jet2 offering to be better than most these days. I always have a breakfast when doing an early morning flight and they are quite good when you consider what the alternatives are. They have gone up in price but what hasn't? Flying later in the day again you make the decision based on what your options are prior to getting on the plane. However if you do decide to have a meal on the plane I can recommend the Jet2 offering as being very reasonable and tasty.

A pre-booked meal is a much better bet, quality and price wise, than sandwiches and crisps etc bought from the trolly and as mentioned previously, particularly on the return leg, they may well run out of these things before they get to you.

Jet2 Meals

I agree with Airforced. The quality of the meals on Jet2 flights are excellent but when you add a further 2.20 to the cost for a cup of coffee, I'm not so sure they represent value for money compared with what you would get for the same cost in MAN airport.

HH6702, looking at the schedules I make it only five aircraft needed, i.e. current size as there appears to be 0640 PMI, 0700 ALC, 0730 FAO, 0730 PRG and 0930 DLM on a Thursday in the norning peak. Have I missed something?

Jet2's Boeing 757-200, G-LSAK has had RAK Airways titles added to it today as she is going out on a winter lease.

She will be departing Leeds tomorrow positioning out to Vienna first before been sent down to Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE.

Nobody knows whats happening with the Jet2's Leeds - Belfast route from April next year.

When I have tried contacting them recently about it they didn't even reply so flybe got my money instead..

It's due back in service next week so it's news to Jet2 if it's being scrapped.
Still not back in service.

I have just checked planespotters.net and it says it is now stored?
