Really? You do shifts like that? Welcome to our world!!

Fortunately for us, rarely do we come across life threatening situations daily. Unlike an Ambulance team.

Keep up the good work. I mean it.

Hello Narrow Runway

Thanks for the kind comments and yes we do get days like that. People don't see/think we do but it happens.

Anyway back to planes

As is always the way with jet2. There is a cost implication. I.e. There is a cost to do it. Nothing works here unless it's for peanuts or free. The crews who do work are the peanut type. Cabin get no sales bonus now really. Flight getting sick of the rubbish. The 757 are short of crew so doubt they could fly further afield on a 767. As with ppjn they are onto bigger better things such as 707 ha ha.

Not Jet2.com and Jet2Holidays' finest moment. Live on SKY News are survivors saying that the company have stated none of their customers were affected where this is not the case. They are saying they've had no support whatsoever.

We can confirm that we have no Jet2holidays customers staying in the affected hotels.
Same quote, different interpretations.

G-LSAB looks like it is heading towards Tunisia on a positioning flight number so not sure that is considered 'no support whatsoever'.

From the JET2 web site:

Latest Flight Information:

Tunisia Information

We will be bringing back those Jet2holidays and Jet2.com customers, who want to return home, today. Up to four aircraft will be arriving at Enfhida Airport this afternoon to repatriate those customers free of charge. Further details will be provided shortly.

We are offering customers departing on or before 24th July 2015 the option to cancel free or change their booking without amendment fees. We will be continuously reviewing our policy on this as more information becomes available.

We can confirm that we have no reports of injuries or fatalities among Jet2.com or Jet2holidays customers.

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those affected by this appalling incident in Tunisia.

Our customers’ safety remains our number one priority and we are continuing to liaise closely with the relevant UK and local authorities.

Jet 320

All operators are only doing it for PR, TOM may be quick off the mark but its PR saving as well.

Notice all operators are only allowing you to cancel hoildays for a month, ie unless the Goverment issue a no travel alert, you are going as it will hit our profits otherwise to refund and relocate you.....

Im have not seen Sky News but I expect its a handful of people in the grand scheme of things. TOM have yet to send people to hospitals to visit injure as well. The people on the news have little to be moaning about, compared to many others who have lost family......just running their mouths off on camera.

No operator will come off overly well.

Hope passengers will remember next time they book a holiday how Thomson reacted and how Jet2 reacted. I know with who I'll book next!!
Just remind me how many Jet2 holidaymakers were staying in the affected hotels? Different circumstances require different actions. It would be wrong for any tour operator to be clogging up the system trying to rush their holidaymakers back when people who have been directly affected should be getting 'un clogged up' priority. It would seem reasonable that Thomson had to react very quickly as some of their holidaymakers were directly affected.

It might appear that 'Jet2_320' is one of these miserable 'chips on shoulders' people. How many tour companies would be happy to carry grumpy unreasonable gob-sh1ites like him, other than to take his money?

Most of your comments regarding Jet2 have varied between plain wrong and distinctly puerile. Nice to see you're maintaining your own low standards. If you have an axe to grind with your employer then take it up with them rather than playing the keyboard warrior.

Agree with the above. There were some departments working out of hours last night to reassure customers over the phone and offer advice, alongside various departments that are already established to provide 24 hour direct contact for customers overseas..

Logistically it's not exactly going to be easy to just send enough aircraft and crews straight away to rescue passengers who understandably just want to get out of there. But it appears that is what's happening..

Jet2_320: Jet2 updating the website with regards to the horrible incident in Tunisia is just an immediate reaction to the very negative publicity at Sky News. To little to late.
The quote on the Jet2 website was there yesterday, on the same page. It has been up since the first news broke of the attack, so not an 'immediate reaction' to the negative publicity on Sky news. What happened in Tunisia is no fault of any of the tour operators.

What is their responsibility, is allowing people to cancel/change their upcoming holidays, and most importantly, get them home. Jet2 have sent 3 charter flights down to pick up stranded passengers in NBE, with a fourth on standby. Tomorrow, another aircraft is due to depart from MAN at 6:45am. Such times of crisis are a massive struggle for all tour operators affected. It will certainly lead to a dint in profits for Jet2, but they're doing everything they can to get people back home. As pug said, sending aircraft and crews down straight away is nothing short of a logistical nightmare.

I would treat the posts from Jet2_320 with the contempt they deserve. This is just another alias of a long time portrayer of bile, most of his previous aliases have been banned, i suspect this one will not last that long.

Does anyone really think that he has ever worked for Jet2? Posts like this anywhere are usually from some twisted little 'wannabe' who is too incompetent for the job, whoever the employer. But hey, they can hide behind their keyboards...!

(Just look at that misguided username for starters!)

In regards to Tunisia , I think going by comments on Facebook , and the likes of those complaining, it is understandable they don't want to be there, but surely even the most stupid must realise , you can't just up and send a jets out to anywhere on a whim , a little respect too , to the poor souls that lost their lives , wouldn't go a miss, but I suppose this just shows what sort of society we live in , "it's all about meeeee!!!!" You would hope that something like this doesn't happen to them....... On a side not those complaining about jet2 not reacting fast enough , they had info on their home page before Thomas Cook , albeit behind Thomson but as I think Riu are part of Tui , would explain why Thomson and first choice are more involved ...

God bless those that have died , and safe passage home for their fellow family and friends ..


Just as a note I have stayed in said hotel a few years ago , so while not directly affected , it does make you think . Good night all .

The Boeing 767 (CS-TFT) that has been emergency leased from Euro Atlantic is a direct result of LS having to operate rescue flights to Tunisia. It has cost a lot. Interesting that even though it has fifty seats more than the B752s in the fleet, it is not operating the rescue flights. Do LS want to make sure their liveries are visible on the rescue flights?

What a snide remark and what lack of empathy! Obviously anyone wanting to return from Tunisia, after such dramatic and deadly circumstances, would expect to be welcomed on board by JET2 crews and flown back in JET2 aircraft to feel reassured.

From the JET2 web site:

Tunisia Information (28.06.15 10.00)
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will now be cancelling all flights and holidays to Tunisia up to and including 5th July 2015. Jet2holidays customers will be offered a full refund or the option to change their booking without an amendment fee. Jet2.com customers will be given a full refund.

In addition, those customers with Jet2holidays booked up to and including 31st July 2015 will also be allowed to change their booking without an amendment fee.

Two flights arrived back in the UK from Tunisia yesterday, bringing back 313 Jet2holidays and Jet2.com customers. Today we have 336 confirmed passengers returning home to Glasgow and Manchester Airports on two aircraft. A third aircraft is also available to repatriate our remaining passengers who may want to return home. We also have additional aircraft and crew on standby as required.

Customers in Tunisia wishing to return to the UK today should please call +44 113 387 9501.

Customers in Tunisia are being contacted via text message, mobile and email to update them regarding travel details.

We can confirm that we have no reports of injuries or fatalities among Jet2.com or Jet2holidays customers.

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those affected by this appalling incident in Tunisia.

Is this just coincidence or is the age of the fleet really becoming a problem now?

Tunisia Information

New Tunisia Information Page. The page details that;
  • A third aircraft is on standby at NBE
  • Jet2 are carrying passengers home from other tour operators
  • The CEO and 5 other senior members are in Tunisia now
  • Two additional aircraft and crew are on standby in the UK currently, if required

Good to see that the top dogs have flown down there, and they'll be visiting hotels in affected areas
