LSM your attitude is very condescending to your colleagues, I admire your defence of the company however you must be blind not to see the issues within the company and why so many pilots are leaving. I hope your attitude on the flight deck is a little less confrontational.

I'm not defending the company I'm defending my lifestyle from the company.

Shame you can't see the difference and think I'm being confrontational.

Do you think these issues will be solved by - pilots leaving or by pilots meekly toeing the line or by pilots staying and confronting them?

LSM, sorry if I've misunderstood you, but using such phrases as

" must be stupid to arrange things on a duty day"

"Spineless"

"Not having the balls...."


Could be misconstrued as confrontational.

Just my opinion born out of frustrating of seeing spineless mongs asking how high they should jump.

If you're not a spineless mong then I'm not referring to you.

I'm not being condescending, I'm too busy thinking about far more important things that you wouldn't understand.

What does it matter what type of passenger is down the back? Am I going to fly differently? Absolutely not. It's SOP SOP SOP regardless of who's down the back or even if it's a cargo flight. And these smug upper class business men of which you speak are good for revenue and fly in the winter - BA don't just shut down in winter, unlike some.

Jet2s hours may be family friendly in your opinion but there are NUMEROUS posts on here saying roster disruption is a major problem at Jet2 and therefore not family friendly. Neither is the random rostering. Ryanair or easyJet's fixed pattern (for those on them) at 5 on 4 off, or 5 on 3 off 5 on 4 off are far more conducive to a family life as you can plan your life months in advance.

Jet2 bans passenger for life for exposing Pinocchio tattoo on privates to crew | Daily Mail Online

Surely not on a Jet2 flight??? I've met a few difficult business passengers but I've never had one expose themselves. The business folk get on, sit down and get on with it. None of this rubbish.

I've a Jet2 question that some of you closer to the operation may be able to answer. How can Jet 2 cancel their 360 flight from Rome to Belfast on Thursday, inform passengers that they can't pick them up until Sunday and say that they are not entitled to any form of compensation? Surely they are liable for additional costs incurred?

Was it this Thursday? If it was, Jet2 had no other option other than cancel the LS360 flight, with the Fire at Rome. The airport has done its best (and done well) to re-open Terminal 3, which Jet2 operate from. It was not until today that it re-opened, and hence, the first day they can get you back. Unfortunately, this could be classed as an 'extraordinary circumstance', which Jet2 aren't liable to pay out for. After all, it isn't their fault that the fire started. Any compensation or additional costs incurred will come from your Travel Insurance Provider, who (if you're covered for) will pay out the agreed cancellation funds and incurred costs.

Under EU regulations, airlines are bound to cover the cost of care during disruption due to "extraordinary circumstances" although they do not have to pay compensation for lost flights.

An example given over yesterday and today - The ALC-LBA flight was split between two planes;

LS272A, which departed at 23:50 last night, and,
LS272C, which departed at 12:00 today. Customers on the LS272C have been provided with overnight hotel accommodation in Alicante.

We are not talking an hour or twos change in report time, we are talking wholesale changes from earlies to lates or the other way around
Budar

This can be due to regulation as much as crew shortage. If Jet 2 for example when moving to EASA FTL suggested being able to operate 4 earlies instead of the current 3 would you support this if it helped manage the roster disruption?
