I was quick to criticise them when in the initial aftermath of the Tunisia incident Jet2 were legging almost a day behind Thomson with their reaction, also Iíve made it well clear on here how I feel we get treated by their management style.

So I guess itís only fair to say well done for going out there and speaking to the customers!! I am positively surprised.

Jet2 4

So next time just STFU perhaps?
Not the time to make anti employer comments let alone without any knowledge.

That was exactly my point. They could have had 50 extra seats on the ground in Tunisia if it wasn't for this consideration.

But we didn't need all those extra seats, there weren't enough busses to bring the passengers to the airport to fill the seats. We even had an aeroplane leave NBE and go to night stop in MLA due to insufficient busses which then repositioned in the next morning when the busses were available.

Never assume anything.

Reading the various comments about Tunisia and how Jet2 reacted have brought me out of PPRuNe retirement, after nearly 10 years.

We subbed in and used our own a/c in Tunisia, because we wanted to make sure our customers, at a distressing time, were cared for by our own pilots & own cabin crew. Nothing to do with PR, it was just about care & welfare.

TUI were quick to launch rescue flights because this tragic incident took place at a TUI exclusive hotel and almost immediately after it occurred, the Belgian Government advised against all travel to Tunisia (something the UK Government has yet to do and probably will not), which meant that Jetairfly a/c were launched from Belgium straight away and Thomson followed shortly after, once it became apparent there were fatalities and they were very likely to be TUI customers.

TCX had aircraft in Tunisia Saturday, that were scheduled anyway.

Our first scheduled flights, were due on Sunday

At 0900 Saturday, COBRA met and decided not to alter the UK FCO travel advice for Tunisia. We then decided to launch our 3 rescue flights and bring back any Jet2 customers (plus some TUI/TC/Monarch, free of charge), who wanted to come home and the first two arrived back in LBA & MAN Saturday night.

Just thought it right to set the record straight.

My thoughts are with the friends & relatives of the victims and those at TUI, who have had to deal with this first hand.

Crazy amount of resignations / crew leaving for pastures new.

Are J2 actively employing new pilots or do they have a revolving door policy on crews?

Revolving door

It's not just revolving for the crew! The OCC have this policy too

I'm thinking about applying to them as flight deck as I want a home base. I enjoy my current job but I'm sick of committing.

Can anyone tell me what the financials are like for the company. I read their last annual report a while back. What do people think long term?

I ask as I work for an extremely stable airline but I really want to be based closer to home but don't want to risk it.

I'm a little uncertain what people mean when it's revolving doors. What does that mean in the context of Jet2?

Are crews resigning on 3 months notice (e.g. by time served summer will nearly be over!)

Hearty Meatballs

I doubt anyone on here can answer your question, Jet2 have a healthy balance sheet and cash reserves and a sound business plan with a loyal mainly northern customer base.

If you get the base you want/need its worth a punt, most of the people that i know who work there seem happy, but are not happy about roster stability and it would appear pilot turnover is increasing.

All down to basing, most will put up with all kinds of crap if they can sleep in their own bed on a night

Disruptive passenger

I see Jet2 have issued a life time ban to a Mr Marshall following his behaviour which it is alleged resulted in the flight diverting into Toulouse, it has also sent him an invoice for £4800.00 to cover its costs, it will be interesting to see how that plays out in court!!

Its about time airlines started getting tough with these idiots, there should be an industry wide no fly list for these people, sadly the human rights act will likely block any such approach

I applaud Jet2 for taking this stand

Well done jet2, travel is a privilege, if it's not treated as such it should be taken away. With that in mind, What part of the Human Rights act would an industry-wide "no fly" list violate, or are you just spouting daily mail non-sense?
